    She looked straight into the mirror, watching the curls tumble down her shoulders when she released them from the steaming barrel. Her blue eyes were tinted gray with fatigue, but she didn’t care anymore. Outlined in black over a shimmering white powder, she could shield the tired eyes. She almost...

    You can’t do it. You’re different, you stick out too much, you’re not taking AP physics or super –duper-advanced- only- for- really- smart –talented- people math. You fake panic attacks. You cry to get your way. You don’t dress like THEM, act like THEM, talk like THEM. You aren’t THEM....

    Her heart pounding, she maneuvered the wheels of the Civic into the driveway as quickly as she could. Almost hyperventilating, she grabbed her backpack out of the passenger seat and ran into the house. Her mother wasn’t home, as usual. Her brother was at soccer practice. It was just her. S...

    The souls of my shoes tapped gently on the wood of the barley lit room. Everywhere I looked life size sketches of people line the walls, people living right now, captured as the world sees them right now. They are colorful, some more than others. Each sketch is outlined in adjectives describing t...

    Out from white lips whispers “I’m scared” Lost words dissolve into the air. Bicentennial eyes cry black tears Pale, boney hands clench nothing. Fear holds the hand. A child falls to the ground As the winds blow in her outside home Long, dark curls cover a white face Decorated with b...

    Imagine yourself doing what every teen secretly wishes they could do. Imagine having your poster up in the bedrooms of strangers, your name coming up in discussions around the world, your own line of clothes or makeup- your face on bed sheets or toys. Imagine being a famous teen. Yes, it probabl...

    Her fists, decorated in black bracelets, clenched the tight air around her, as her electric eyes cried dark tears. It was horrifying, it was unjust. It was not what she had signed up for. She knelt, her long, dark curls brushing the forest floor, covering her spider webbed face. Her breath, out ...

    I don’t write to please you. I will not be restricted by “proper” punctuation! I will not be fenced in by minuscule words or sentence fragments. If I want to write about the sweet, sun on my face as I hold a smooth, hard rind of a watermelon- the color pump and juicy, a tender pink. If I w...

    The moonlight shone perfectly on her, making the frizz from her long, curly dark brown hair glow. It was a silhouette of a young woman, only her hair, bow and body shape highlighted and glowing. She danced under it every night, wearing no shoes on the wet, itchy grass of the forest. The trees wo...

    When something has the “Disney” label stamped on it, parents imminently assume that it’s clean for their children. But how clean is Disney, really? Everyone has heard of the “secret sexual messages” in Disney classics, but are they really there? And if they are, are they meant to be? Se...

    “No.” Troy’s lips were in a thin line as they all walked through the door. Who did they think they were? The Cullens? “They will never make it.” Miley/ Hannah rose her eyebrows as she eyed them. “They don’t look like they have an ounce of talent in their body. Were their fathers 80...

    The soft, off white curtain contradicted the two pairs of eyes that stared out the window- emerald green, bright enough to light the entire sky, and the worn bicentennials. Carmen, with her electrifying eyes and glistening blonde hair, touched Bella’s shoulder lightly. The girl didn’t flinch...

    Emma couldn’t have been more embarrassed with her life if she wanted to be. She hated these secrets- this lie she was living. She got up before the sun every morning, trying to make herself presentable to the rest of the junior class. She took a shower, dried her hair, pulled jeans on over her bon...

    The sound of sobs rang through the house as I shut the front door. I dropped my bag and took off my coat as I ran up the stairs. It was coming from Harlow’s room. I opened the door, finding her balled up in a corner of her bed, gulping for air and shaking, her face soaked. Her blonde hair was ...

    The headlights of the cars made bright stripes across my bedding and my walls as they passed, making my room eerie and uncomfortable. I snuggled down further beneath my comforter and pressed the sheets to my face. I hated the shadows on the wall the same way I had hated them when I was five. It was ...

    I feel like I know you, but I don’t. I stare at you, and you stare back, both our eyes vivid and alive with curiosity. We reach out, as if to touch each other, but retract our hands at the exact, same time. Something is keeping us apart. I didn’t understand, at first. I saw you, in your entir...

    Stop right there, Sweetheart. I want to talk to you, and you, and you…. So you think that you can pin all of this on me? You think that just because I was different that I’m suddenly your property? Did you pay for me? Did you all pool your money and buy me, just so you could kick and throw me...

    I’m not a singer, like her. I can’t get up in front of an audience and wow them with my voice. I’m not a musician, like him. I can’t create magic with my fingers on a piano or a guitar. I can barely play “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”. And I’m not an A plus student, like she is. I...

    The clock over the desk was ticking too loud. My pencil felt all clammy in my hand, the grooves where the bite marks were rough against my skin. A,B,C,D. Ok, it had to be one of them, but which one? Wait, what was the question again? My eyes fluttered back to the top of the paper. “Which of t...

    Maggie wore bows in her hair. Pink on Monday, green on Tuesday, red on Wednesday, purple on Thursday and yellow on Friday. Because yellow was a happy color, and Friday was a happy day. And Maggie wore dresses with socks up to her knees With little black shoes, and Shirley Temple curls. Becaus...

    Come over here, I whisper silently to myself. Come on, Jay. Please. Wrap your arm around my waist, sneak up on me and hug me around my neck (you know I hate that), but please, Jay, come over. He knows I’m looking at him. There’s a huge group of students in the hallway, linking arms, chatting,...

    Every eye lit up, as if they were all children, seeing the tree on Christmas morning for the first time. Giggles escaped from every throat, including the adults. It was shockingly beautiful. It was an inconvenience to so many. So many had such detest for it, but not the people of this town. Every...

    She dropped it. It hit the bathroom floor with a clatter, but she hardly heard it. Her ears where swimming with guilty, sinful voices. She blinked to keep back tears as she pressed her palms to the sink. She didn’t dare look in the mirror. She didn’t dare look at her leg or wrist. Her imaginatio...

    “Omigosh did she look at her hair this morning?” “Guys only like her cause she’s so easy” “She thinks she’s, like, the best singer ever” “What compelled her to wear that?” “She used to be pretty. Now I think she’s gaining weight…” If words could kill, teenage girl...

    “Little Girl, if you could be any color, what color would you be?” “I would be yellow” said the Little Girl, “Because yellow is the color of light and warmth and happiness. The sun is yellow, and everyone and everything is happiest when the sun is out.” “Little Girl, if you could be ...
