    Three cups of half drunken coffee—cold and forgotten in the midst of red smiles stretched across white teeth and laughter that only sounded real if you squinted your eyes a little. One dress, a pair of pants, two pairs of thick socks, a lacy nude bra, white cotton underwear and what mam...

    1) You came back just as I always thought you would. You pulled back the floral white and pink covers that your mom bought us and slid in next to me. The whiskey stench drifted to me as you tried to pull me into your arms. My face was pressed against your chest and you whispered “it’s okay, it...

    She tends to forget that a coat or a jacket is necessary in order to not freeze in the Chicago air. Living on a lake may have its perks but it’s always five degrees colder here than at home and then you have to take into account the wind chill. It may say 30 degrees but it feels like 7. She wore d...

    7: He was just a man on the street and I was on my swing. It was yellow and it was old but it was mine and all I ever wanted was to own something. He smiled and waved. I probably looked at him and smiled shyly before running inside of my little brick house. I didn’t think of him again. 10: I’...

    I used to be able to reach Out and grab your Fingers but now they’re buried in your hair and I can’t seem to figure out which way isn’t up. You were this idea floating Around inside my mind and I’d miss you but I hadn’t Seen you or told you that It was Wednesday, Not Frida...

    you taught me how to: brush my hair, hate anything along the lines of marriage, vacuum without any foot-prints, and to not respect those who didn’t respect me. i taught you that: you didn’t know how to parent a teenager who didn’t know who she was and how to cook salmon perfectl...

    I never thought I'd aspire to be a writer. Quite honestly, I used to dislike writing more than I now dislike math. When I entered high school, I had a list of what I wanted to get out of my life. However, that quickly changed. The multi-talented singer/clothing designer/chef idea didn't seem comple...

    Here I am Again, trying to cram myself into a single Sentence, but all of my words are catching you aflame. It wasn't supposed to hurt, and my hands shouldn't be covered in ash as if It Were All My fault. But, now the walls are Burning. Along with my reality. and I stand i...

    rivers of Black Tea, warming my ungloved hands, vulnerable to the cold winter chill and you were there, sitting at the edge of the floral scented river waiting to dive in. but without a Glance, you stood up, your feet took you Away. but your pea-coat was a bit too short for you...

    i found myself lost in the constellation of freckles across your bare shoulders we counted to five, swinging our legs and holding our breath carefree with the taste of summer in my long hair, reflecting yesterday and tomorrow as if they would come and go like the waves of that ocea...

    You are: hot coffee and early mornings bright on my eyes Adjusting The Sleepiness away As I wait for you to comb your hair and Brush Your Teeth. find two blue socks, agreeing to disagree. I instead, wait on a rising sun dew coating the grass with a repeated goodbye; Grinning...

    I was hoping, wishing, thinking, that maybe if you took a peak inside of my crammed thoughts, you’d help me decide who I was. Who I was going to be. But then you decided that you should cut me open and analyze what I looked like inside. But you didn’t come out with any answers except co...

    “I miss you.” thrown around and sometimes some confusion. But I really didn’t know how to feel. I didn’t know how to tell you, that I wasn’t okay. That dealing with this wasn’t something that burying my head in long novels could explain to me. And that when I slept, I had nigh...

    Sometimes I’d try to write but My words jumbled in a mess of “Oh” “I love you” “Smile, it’s beautiful” but I never got my point across. I never said any of those things that kept everyone around because I didn’t even know how to keep myself around. And my thoughts went out t...

    I left the letter by the door, but I think mommy read it. She asked if I wanted to talk about it. I said “no” but I really meant “yes,” She didn’t realize that. I was just trying to say that nothing felt right anymore and that you needed to come home, but I guess I didn’t yell ...

    And turn the page, don’t be afraid because you’re not alone. I’ve been there, and I’ve felt that. I know what it’s like to lay in your bed, listening as the world is sleeping, silently. While you toss, and while you turn, and while you think about how nothing feels right a...

    This wasn’t supposed to be an end, but it felt like one. You grabbed for my hand and pulled me towards the swings. I stepped back as your questioning blue eyes scanned my face. I held both hands up, and stared at you. “Before anything else, I just want to explain. I’ve got ten reasons.”...

    I didn't know that questioning everything would lead to an empty room with my thoughts hitting the walls. Maybe loving you was a mistake but that didn't stop me from writing until my tears had dried on my pillow, littering my head with too many regrets. My response was too late...

    Because I don't know what to think and my chest is caving in around my barely beating heart, just to give it protection from You. I'm gasping for air and screaming out to you. Wait. Wait. Wait. And I can't do this, not again. A simple conversation and I'm falling apart as...

    I hear the distant yells, surrounding me. Whispers of memories flit across my mind. Long nights, dark rooms. Where are you? Why am I alone again? A baby wailing, reaching out for the mother who has slipped away. The darkness swallowing her. The loneliness too much to bear. Where ar...

    I suppose the end was inevitable, but who knew it would be so soon. Maybe I wanted you to fight for me, wanted you to prove that I mattered, and wasn’t some girl in the parade of those waiting in line. Already I miss your kiss, the elegant fingers tracing my neck. I miss your abrupt replie...
