    Some families are really messy and some people are drug addicts or alcoholics and sometimes children have to be adults. People get sick, they die, and sometimes it feels like everyone you love is either gon or falling apart at the seams. But then your aunt will laugh and spit chicken on ...

    Drinking from a paper cut borne of the receipt detailing the liquor purchase of last week. It opened up again today and welled with honey and blood. The taste removes you to bedroom that is not yours and a love you barely remember. It's fond and pain to be here, again. When ...

    I used to pretend innocence, stand on my tiptoes and hug you. But I was biting your sensitive ears and running my fingers through your hair because that was what I loved most: making you feel like you loved me. And you believed it. The truth is, I have aphrodisiac lips and I believe...

    Sometimes my cat licks the snot off my nose after I've been crying and when I try to write she rubs her face on my pen. Sometimes I don't think I know what love is, but then my cat comes to stand on my chest when I can't seem to exhale to remind me that love is simple and hel...

    “Shh,” Hot weight pressing down, soaking through the sheets. “Stay still, can’t let them see you.” A quiet hand shifting over sleep-swollen lips, soft and rough with calluses and slick with sweat, shaking in fear. In the morning, I find him sitting at the top of the stairs, arms poised...

    That song playing in the car- my hair whipping in the wind- (I think I'll dye it blue tonight) The arm of the windmill swooping down on us- The cloud-obstructed stars- the lightning in the milky-purple West- My converse. (I think I forgot my phone. What time is it? Well, What t...

    Jack your eyes are bloodshot. You smell musky, green. You look dazed, but it's the only time you've ever really looked at me like there was a person inside you. Without the weed, you are just a lantern with no candle. A Jack-O-Lantern (ha) unlit. But when you're soarin...

    The knots in my bracelet are coming undone, While the knots in my stomach tighten, constrict. The purple string is unraveling. I remember the day you tied it around my wrist, Promising forever with a thousand knots....

    I don't need him I don't need his compliments to float through the telephone wire and slither in my ear Because once he's gone they'll fester turn ugly and backwards lies. I don't need his kisses leaving trails from my lips to my neck. Bread crumbs that will lead me to him after he's ...

    My daddy was laughing in the office. I poked my head through the door to see what was so funny. Me, as a four year old, on the screen of his computer, telling him that I loved this movie called ‘the gwife’, known to the general population of ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’. I had a slight l...

    Suddenly while knitting a scarf, the first scarf ever, my first knitting experience, taught by Gramma, I smell Toaster Strudels. There's a hole in my scarf I must have dropped a stitch. The bottom starts to unravel. Gramma? What do I do? The purple yarn is coming undone twisting like ...

    Childhood tastes like Cap'n Crunch. Cap'n Crunch tastes like summer and my brother and warm summer mornings. Poptarts taste like Washington like our old house with the two steps down to the TV room. Grampa's house tastes like fudge bars and enchiladas. Enchiladas taste like...

    Sometimes After the playlist on my iPod has finished I just leave my headphones in. In my room, everything remains quiet like the background music never stopped playing. I pretend that I'm listening in the hallways at school but really I just like to hear the chaos. I pretend I ...

    I stole Father Time's hourglass and the Sand Man's tiny rocks. I am the reason that time goes quickly when you are having fun. I am the reason that it seems to take forever before your special one texts you back. I am the one who keeps you up thinking about him. I am the on...

    I feel different from the rest of them. I'm not quite comfortable. I put on a facade of happiness around them, and when I get home, I'm completely wiped out. I sleep for hours, and wake up really mad. I have to go for a run just to pound it all out of me. I can't wear shorts or skir...

    At a Waffle House on Christmas day me and my mom and my dad sat down in a grimy booth. The grease on the table made it look shiny and clean but as soon as I touched it I knew different. A young boy about my age came to wait on us I wore my striped glasses a Rocket To The Moon T Sh...

    The ravens of fate as the Grimm brothers called it are perched upon your head talking to each other bickering, really over what is to come and how to stop it. What is to come you ask. The first raven answers “Your soul will be impure from this day and onward.” How can I sto...

    I hear nothing when people talk and when they don’t I feel them walk. In the silence I hear the world I hear her groaning wishing for peace I hear her moaning wishing quiet In silent noise, I hear it called from all the voices old or small Protect my family keep me safe help ...
