    In the hospital of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center the heart monitor kept time with the clatter of my footsteps as I followed the man in white– “Oncology” etched in black lining on his starch white jacket. I stayed behind to keep out of the way, sterile glove clad hands knew...

    I met you in an ice cream store. Your face looked cold, that wasn’t true, I dropped my cone, I mopped the floor. I slipped my number, thought you knew under the dime but I was late, in love with you or is that glue? I asked you on an ice cream date, but you were helping others choose,...

    A little trip to a place in time I proceeded with caution; I didn’t know what to expect. At the edge of the memorial wall I dipped in one toe then the other and the silent tide crept in. Dark cool marble began its ascent to the left and I was slowly immersed…first the ankles,...

    I know a lady, a porcelain lady Who downs in ribbon and lace The finest silk of Persian-make Reflects her inner grace. From hazel hoops of beauty, To scarlet lips of rose, She wears her favorite colors In fashion where she goes. She paints a vivid picture, Sterling silver say the least....

    If you were Apollo Then I would follow, You along the misty shore. We’d spread our roots Beneath the shallows, Until we reached the ocean floor. We’d dance and sing Within the grotto, A day befit of sailor’s lore. When getting lost Is but a motto, You needs an anchor to be...

    There’s something simple about the sea. It listens when you talk to it, And sighs when you ought to listen. It speaks in gurgling pops, Of water filling rocks. And preaches of a land Of sand-scuttling crabs. It explains the acquired soul Of the great Herring Gull, And dances in the sa...

    Nervous hands, nervous feet, and one super nervous smile. I slowly make my way to your locker counting off the digits in my head as if they are mile markers on a highway. C-137…C-139…C-141…I hadn’t seen you all day except for the hallway shuffle where I clumsily slipped you a double-sealed p...

    Her eyes were not blue, nor brown, nor black. They were a multitude of colors – green, hazel, shining emeralds in the sky – a stroke of amber, a tinge of light blue – a sweep of gray and a touch of chestnut. This was her cloud-painted sky, and beneath it all, the source of all her beauty was t...

    If eyes are windows to the soul, Then hers are those of sea glass, iridescent and true. If ears are meant to listen to man talk politics, Hers are tuned for the symphony. If a fine rain were to fall over a lazy sunrise, It would not be lighter than her laugh....

    When exhaustion builds and homework piles, And in-class essays expend the day, It’s coffee that gets me through the miles. As soothing as cold hard tile, It turns the world to black and gray, When exhaustion builds and homework piles. The sieve strained, the lips beguiled, No finer pric...

    Collin, Collin it will never please, To see you write on such trivialities, Of love, of love, oh how my heart pounds! Lighter than helium, will never come down. To be frank dear sir it is rather ill, To pursue a subject only little girls will. Don’t write of love, do it right, Don’t write...

    Hands cracked, borrowed, blue grip the metal pole. Pneumatic hiss, doors are closed, inertia takes its toll. Long face, tired eyes silently cast around. Stuffed mitts, bloated coats, rattling track the only sound. Gradual nods and paper news folded at the crease, Stirring babe and business ...

    As she sits on by, a glowing aura about her body, she stares, All space and time zipping by through a single pane of glass. She gazes upon this colorful atris where time folds, learning more than most. And with a keen sense of nature, she thinks. Oh, the mysteries behold! What wonders be...

    They say there are windows on the water, Transparent portals to another world. The seagulls know it. They are standing on them. Awaiting the sunrise and the birth of a new day. The fishermen sense it. They cast their nets and Feel the pull of the line gone taut. The idle sailor c...

    I wear the mask that darkly hides All things dear and close inside It protects me from the specter’s stare, That gaping jaw the knowing mare My mask is my security. The mask is fine, it’s good you see It shields me from humilities, It grants me my impunities, My mask is my sovereignty....

    When I look to thee I find not malice or grief, Nor dullest streak writ across thy face. No foul of night or cunning thief, Can steal thy fruit, thy holy grace. Oh shining Star, thou stand’st alone, Amidst the sea of a thousand churning souls Only the miser can value thy precious...

    “I am the coolest guy in the world,” I had to keep reassuring myself as my grandmother drove me to the one place on earth where books meet nerds. “It should be fun” she said with a keen twinkle in her eye as if she knew exactly what was going to happen. I couldn’t tell whether I was anx...

    Coming from a small Catholic school where the largest class was 28 students, my first day in Wall High School (average class size 300) was somewhat of a culture shock… …And there I was, diligently writing away my new teacher’s new rules when a screeching, jarring sound rippled through the a...

    I had absolutely no idea what was going on. There was chaos everywhere and I was at the center of it all. The crowd was totally nuts, screaming and swelling like a rogue wave right before it’s about to break. And from atop my little white block things didn’t look so good. The water was deep, dee...

    When I was young, my two older brothers Nick and Kyle always took me on the wildest adventures. We lived in the beautiful Pennsylvania plains so there was plenty to do. Summers were spent chasing foxes and making trails in the long grass. At night we would lie underneath the stars breathing in the w...

    Just the other day I walked into class as the bell rang and my AP English teacher didn’t even glower at me. That was odd. So I sat down with my books and waited for class to begin, but it didn’t. Our teacher was frozen like a stone block statue in front of her desk. She just sighed and de-monocl...

    “So are you excited for Pep Week?” A brunette asked me jovially, hair bouncing behind her. She batted her lashes at me and I received a flipbook image of G-O J-U-N-. “What happened to the eors?” I asked wryly. “I beg your pardon?” “You know the I-O-R-S’s. They’re missing....

    I was sitting with my friends in the middle of fifth period lunch when something round and greasy hit TJ in the arm. “Eww, a butterball,” said TJ brushing the lumpy food particle aside. Hearing laughter, we turned around and saw it was none other than table nine – the notorious table nine w...
