    Do you know? Are you aware? Of the trail of broken hearts at your feet? Do you know? Do you see? You've taken a sliver of me. Do realize? Or are you blind to the cycle that ensnares you? I'm just another girl who's not enough-- one in your vast assortment of 'frie...

    Oh the bitter counterblasts I'll never have the heart to say to your face. I wrote them down, but they'll remain unspoken even though they're well deserved. Yes, you've earned a nasty word Or two. With your impassioned promises that turned to impetuous lies and abrupt...

    Verse 1 Opened my heart a crack Just enough for you to peek in An enamoured smile was your response As you, smoothly and observantly pointed out The beauty in me verse 2 Silly stipulations made When lost in the moment You vowed never to harm this heart of mine As I pledged to never leave...

    I don’t know how much longer I can stand here and hold this conversation. You are seriously making me sick. Please, someone do me a favour and gag me with a spoon. End my misery now! “I seen her yesterday.” You say. “She’s still mad and stuff. Says I’m cheating. But I didn’t do noth...

    I woke up today Can't say that I wanted to I'd rather not face myself And the mess that I've become I'm so tired Worn to the bone I'm so sick of being alive When I feel so dead inside Inside… Chorus: Lies poison my heart Spread through my veins I'm paral...

    My eyes wander Your heart breaks As I’m dividing my attention My affections My heart I sing love songs They aren’t for you And you know everything That I don’t want you to CHORUS: And so you let me go To chase my selfish dreams You let me go To reach the end of me You let me ...

    Your curls are perfectly sculpted now, rather than frizzy, wild, and unruly, tousled about your face. They fall gracefully over your shoulders and I feel strangely compelled to reach out and touch those locks as they glisten in the light of the setting sun, looking as lustrous as silk. They’re pro...

    I wake up five past one in the morning to a serious and most unnerving case of nausea; my stomach twisting in a series of painful knots. My mouth taste as if I’ve been sucking on a hunk of aluminum foil and I recognize this as a sign that bile will soon rise to the surface. I’m ready to hurl… ...

    Tuesday, June 8th, 2010, 8:21 pm. a phone call bearing news of apocalyptic proportions marked the end of my life as I knew it. The sun and centre of my universe had been eclipsed for eternity, and only shadows remained in a world devastated by darkness and lacking any source of illumination. The oxy...

    I remember that night so clearly Me and you and the stars up above 11:00 the streets were dead And so was I, for being out too late But I’d give anything To have that night back The memory is perfect But that’s all it is now Just a memory Slowly fading, fading It’s not fair I...

    Proper vocal inflections, body language, and emotional conviction are crucial for an effective dramatic performance. Bringing these things into balance is a skill to be perfected with time and practise. I’ve been practising my entire life. I was born with the essentials, and by now I’ve perfecte...

    That stupid slice of fudge cake in the fridge is taunting me. Two layers of chocolaty goodness, call to me with a sweet, seducing, coco voice, "Eat me!” But I couldn’t possibly. It's the last slice. It would be rude of me to eat it in front of him, especially since I won't keep it...

    My heart beats erratically, battering me from the inside. If mysterious bruises form above my left breast, my heart’s abusive thudding will be to blame. I’m irritated by my heart’s obnoxious and ostentatious behaviour; the way she clammers around within the parameters of my rib cage, demanding...

    When my father comes home that evening, Abby and I are still sitting at the table eating mac and cheese. I stand abruptly and serve my parents, without so much as a word of exchange between us, although my father does look at me with disgust. What’s his problem this time? “What the h*ll a...

    Why? That word runs in and out of my mind on an average of once every few minutes. I just want to understand. Why? Why did she do it? Why would my spunky, talented, freshman sister, kill herself? It makes no sense. I can hardly wrap my head around it, but reality is inevitable, regardless of how pai...

    As I washed my hands, I stared at my cheap razor, sitting on the counter. It seemed to quietly speak to me there in the dimly lit bathroom. Do it Dani. Cut the pain out. You’ll feel better. My heart beat quickened. It was so tempting… Another voice spoke, more tenderly than the first one....

    We all have our own story About how our lives changed The day we made... the decision of a lifetime And I thought,"everything is changed I'm not the same... Things are gonna be okay... And I feel so alive today... Been a while since I felt that way..." chorus: But very ve...

    We sat in the luscious green wheat field. The wheat was young and not yet brown or ready for harvest. The blades swayed with the warm summer breeze. Any houses were at least half a mile away. It was easy to open up your heart in such a peaceful, secluded place. We came here often on the weekends, ju...

    If you live within Why can’t I feel it? If you’re all I need Why aren’t I satisfied? If your mercy and grace over flows us with joy Why do I feel so very, very empty? If you can heal anything Why do I hurt? And if you died to give me life Why do I feel as though I’ve died? ...
