    Little lights, gliding ghosts, Thousands and thousands and so many more. Each one a story. Each one a life. Wasted. Wasted away. People are not trash. You cannot simply throw them away! Ah, but they did. The incinerator burned so bright. Brighter than these candles. One day, t...

    I avoid the mean words, I avoid the people herds. I ignore the hate and lies. I avoid my own eyes. I sleep to never face The fear of losing this awful race. Ignore the song that must be sung, I hide away from everyone. I am a void of despair, Pretend to love, but I don't care. Sha...

    Cream-coloured gloves and teeth of pearly white. Her ears, dressed in the finest glittering light. Eyes of sapphire, luscious lips of ruby. She plays her cards just right, and she knows just what to be. Donning the dress with the deepest decolletage, she comes like a dream and leaves lik...

    Princesses, princesses, beauty and grace with shiny silk, pearls, and lace. Dancing like ballerinas upon a music box, their stunning blue eyes and long golden locks. Perfection, perfection, is all that you see. But it's what lies within that can never be. For fairy tales are mor...

    Wheneverythingbecomesjustaslurinmyeyesandinmyhead, I know it is two AM. When I begin to stare into my empty eyes and the mirror is covered in fingerprints, I know it is two AM. When the automatic table lamp on the end table in the living room finally clicks off, I know it is two AM. At two A...

    I hate mirrors. They are so evil, vindictive, cruel… but so truthful. And that’s what I hate most about them. But if given the chance, I would stare into one all day. I’m not vain… Well, I guess that depends on what your definition of “vain” is. If you mean “devoid of substance or ...

    As I watch you contemplate every question on that crucial chemistry quiz, Do I matter? As I pass you in the overcrowded hallway on the way to lunch, Do I matter? As I stare at your flawed face and see only perfection, Do I matter? I sometimes dream about you. I dream that you talk to me. And...

    Mirror, mirror, on the wall, I keep hoping that you’ll fall. I would take those seven years Instead of facing my worst fears. You will never be my friend, For hate and anger you cannot mend. As long as you exist I will never be right, And so when I’m near you I turn off the light. Bu...

    After the dust settles, and the birds land again. After the trees stop shaking, and all the breaks begin to mend, The silence will come. The light will leave. The power will stop. And the water pumps will heave. The metal giants, standing tall, Will give in to death and begin to fall. Ou...

    Girly, girly, what a mistake. Played the game now into the lake, The price she pays for her downfall. So the the people arrive; for the custom they call. And the pounding of the drums Beats in her head. The singing of the people Has her seeing red. She spins around and around again, T...

    Let's play a game. A lying game. Take a breath. Take your turn. Lie. Every day it's a game I play Where I hide myself deep inside. The time's ticking away So I lead them to play To cover the tick, tock, tick tock... It's going to rain. A sorrowful rain. Take what&...

    They told me I was insane, To cause a man so much pain. Why is it such a big deal? In time his wounds will heal. All I did was shoot out his brains....

    I wish I was ten feet tall So I could see over this brick wall Standing in my way, But that's okay; I can always walk around it. Please teach me something new 'cause one plus one doesn't equal two. But happy dreams Are the ones that mean Nothing at all Like this song... ...

    We are one. The paintbrush, the canvas, me. I paint myself. But before I do, I imagine. The cool blues, the sweet violets, the joyous greens. The bright yellows, the warm oranges, the brilliant pinks. And then the reds. The deep, dark reds. ...

    Do you remember? Do you remember the years that have gone by, Like a crisp leaf browned by death Floating through the air in a graceful descent, Having lived, and loved, And been happy to be part of a tree? Though the days are gone when the leaf Was new and green, like the light signaling &q...

    It started when she was no more than five years old. A shy but sweet little girl, whose mahogany-coloured curls were always tied up in a rose pink ribbon behind her head; whose soft, pale, pearly skin was always dressed in the brightest white lace dresses; whose petite, uncalloused hands always held...

    A spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down, A rock tied to your leg makes you sink and drown. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Tears on cheeks and words already written. Don't stop believing, Ha! Like that's relieving. A, B, C, D, Will you REALLY miss me? Twinkle, ...

    I'm sorry I'm not perfect, Sorry I'm a freak, Sorry I'm having fun, Sorry I'm so "weak." Sorry you're so bored, and sitting all alone, Sorry I don't care, Sorry, I lost my phone... Sorry you're still callin' me, Sorry you're trying...

    They gather. They hail one another, all six of them, greeting each other with extreme excitement. The air is frigid. They do not mind. They shake the falling flakes from their back, and they look around. Suddenly, one of them picks up on something....

    You don't love with your heart. It is an organ. Does that mean you don't love with your brain, either? Or does it mean a person Cannot love Because we are so primitive And we are monsters? We destroy with no purpose... Humans cannot love. Why? You cannot love if you don...

    The 1986 Toyota Tercell slowly grinds down the windy, one-way gravel road, bumping with every stone it hits. The dim headlights above the crooked bumper seem to be searching the endless path for... something. Suddenly, the rattling Tercell screeches to a stop. The driver's door opens cautious...
