    Silly girls, painted dolls, empty heads, smiles. Who needs to dig deeper than the outside? their siren calls loud, so perfect their wiles. How man' of these women can say they tried? Quiet, quiet. unsubtle are their cries. We've come very far from elegance all's moving, late rel...

    I do not want to live In fear of a vengeful God. I do not want to live Behind the flames of my country. I do not want to live Every night wondering if it will be my last. I do not want to live in fear. I do not want to live in hate. I do not want to live In a place where my soul is not ...

    Her name meant ‘tree’, and she was probably the most perfectly named person in the world. Ilana was always a tall girl, taller than me in all my ages, and had bronze skin that in our youth was good for blending in with the forest but, when older, would have made her a favorite of the men. She ma...

    There are glow-stick stains on the carpet, Which you can only see when it’s dark, That happened when a glow stick cracked During a youth group party. There is a bathroom stall Tucked in a corner of the Ladies’ Room Where I cried For half an hour And I’m still not sure why. There’s...

    He is gold and blue spandex and white fondant stars. He is gelled-up hair and teeth so white they shine. He can fly, and see through walls. He is a light blue button up shirt, and charcoal gray slacks. He is hair that never needs to be cut, and a welcoming smile. He seems to do it all; he ...

    It’s funny how inspiration works. Spreading like little seeds in the brick wall called (*gulp*) writer’s block. I write something, you think, “That’s good!” and write something about being inspired. I read it and think, “That’s good!” and write something about inspiration spawning...

    She is blue feather earrings and candy floss lips she is glowing eyes and a sly smile that says," I know you " and the pink peek of an ear behind thick hair she is a leaping dash of stardust pulled from the sky to rouge her cheeks She is 76 degrees Fahrenheit (perfect) and crus...

    What happens When the strong become weak? Unable to hold the weight they shouldered so carefully before? Beautifully arranged on their heads A balancing act of classical books. What happens When those who bore all struggles Find their own to bear? No one can take their burdens without spi...

    Existential emptiness. Those few moments when you can’t feel anything. Nothing at all Not the air on your skin or the beating of your heat or the thoughts in your head or the taste in your mouth or the rushing in your ears. It pokes its head around the curtain of the universe and blows a wind ...

    We have voices. We have thoughts. We have opinions. We have minds. We make choices, and have rationals for ourselves, and they are the only rationals that matter. If people could hear our stories, grant us a few moments to see our views, to know our reasons. Maybe none of us would judge...

    My friend told me today that she doesn’t believe in evolution. I believe that the appendix is proof of evolution. She is a Christian, I am a Jew. I was raised with science and knowledge of the way the brain works, and recognize that all people are different. She thinks being gay is a sin. I ...
