    Crumpled hearts can fill a jar Maybe more Faint glow worms stapled to a tree Cannot light the darkness So we capture fireflies And crush their wings Yet we ask them politely To illuminate the night And when they refuse We trap them with the hearts Their broken wings beat hopelessly on the ...

    Scarred, swollen, and sensitive Blistered, broken, and beautiful Fleshy stumps curled into fists Carefully sculpted hands that carve rock against a cyan sky If I died by his hands, I’d be honored If I lived by his fists, I’d be ashamed Red is the color of Blood Rebellion Roses A dress...

    Heide squeezed her eyes shut to block out the images. Images that filmed over her eyes and pounded in her ears. Pale, ghostly faces, children crying, the gunshots of angry soldiers. A long line of people being herded like cattle to Buchenwald. Of course, Buchenwald. The nearest camp. The whole town ...

    This glossy charade draws patterns on the glass that is my mask These cold icicles I tread on feel more real than your slur of untruths Listening to the nightingale of irrationality, your world shatters and I step into my sanity I dread being submerged into the monochromatic pallet of carefully c...

    Hope dangles on a string So tantalizingly mesmerizing It must be wonderful to own it To hide it in a coat pocket Until the words fall flat And the sky is stained To pull it out Like a glimmering star And watch it grow until the ink Fades away And hope is saved For another day My hope is...

    Flowers bloom on your lips But with no one to kiss they fade away Glistening dreams hover in your eyes But your tears wash them all away And love notes to you get lost on the way And your canvas will only be painted in grey Like a sunrise hidden by rain you wait For someone to stop and lowe...

    Break yourself Let out a sigh among the wreck Pick up the shattered remains Don’t care if they cut the flesh Don’t care if the blood stains what had once been It doesn't make a difference All alone in the rabbit hole With no white rabbit in sight The world is up there But the sobs ...

    I studied my grandmother’s hands. They nervously fingered the yellow star I had placed in her lap. Her fingers, roped with veins, traced the German word. They felt the cloth, worn and musty. They remembered. Remembered what, I wasn’t sure. I just knew that yellow star was much more to my grandmo...

    I stare at the photo, mocking me. The girl, that girl, my girl, is leaning on the guy with the smirk. Finally, when it is too late, I see the desperation in her eyes. Her disappointment, her fear, her courage slowly building up. The same courage that knocked me down. Because, in the end, her courage...

    People striding, eyes on their destination They walk with purpose, trusting only the concrete protectors The skyscrapers are the guardians of this bold city They are the products of American ambition and ingenuity They were built to reach the sky, crafted out of hope and determination But they...

    Somewheere in rural Virgina, 1:36pm: The sky is low, like a ceiling. It kind of makes me claustrophobic, especially since I'm not used to it. In Georgia, where I live, you can look to the highest point in the sky and still see clouds. But I guess that's because we're so high up, ...
