    We danced together, my shadow and I, To the beat of our own heart. The yellow walls seemed to urge us near, The light pressed us apart. We danced together, my shadow and I, My shadow took the lead. I followed on her every move, I matched me to her speed. Yet though already we formed a du...

    Pull the splintered pieces of your arrows from my soul Shot with precision, but not with ease Crafted to break upon me with all the force of – A dream. Fall silent. And I am left with empty words and weary heart Waiting to see To hear To touch. That lightning moment, when time Is ete...

    Ice-cold fingers that no longer shivered reached out to touch the tree. The bark must have been rough, but I did not feel it. I leaned back, resting my head against the hard stability of the trunk. The ground, covered with a thin layer of brittle snow, stretched away into the woods, but my feet did ...

    I am two different halves of one broken heart On one side, I watch as my life falls apart On the other, I stand firm and strong from the start I am two different halves of one broken heart I am two falling leaves from one dying tree On one side, a frail broken skeleton I see On the other, a ...

    You ask me what is wrong And why my face has lost its glow You ask me why I’m downcast I answer slow that I don’t know You ask me why I tremble My heart upon my sleeve to show You ask me why the façade I answer soft that I don’t know You ask me why I’m hurting And why the tears...

    VERSE 1 Dear G.od, I fall on my knees tonight Exhausted by the day’s long fight It’s pulling me under, dragging me down Shouting in vict’ry while I make no sound I don’t want to give up the battle so fast But my body is weak, I cannot last Alone without Your strength in me I know m...

    There are voices, voices in my head Calling to be heard I can never be truly alone I hear their every word I am not the one you think Simple, uncomplicated me The voices are calling inside my head Shouting to be free Every book that I have read Each character I have known They haunt m...

    Anna sighed. It was hard to believe that summer was here. It seemed like only yesterday that she had first started working on the ballet. Helena, her teacher, had done a good job. The ballet, Mary Poppins this year, was the best yet. Anna had enjoyed every moment of it. A tall fourteen year old with...

    A girl lay silently, trembling on her bed. Her damp hair lay spread across the pillow into which she pressed her face, stifling sobs. Her thoughts whirled confusedly, fast and frightening. What had she done to herself? What had she done to her life? All those wasted hours, wasted days, wasted dreams...

    If I had a way to fly To leave the earth below I’d escape into the clouds Turn my back on all I know If I had a way to breathe The waters of the sea I’d dive beneath the waves Let their aching comfort me If I had a way to sing The legends of the birds I’d forget the songs I know ...

    Silent I sit, and watch As a thousand fairies flit over the grass Glowing in the dusk They are turning the dewdrops to filmy glass Slowly I stand, and laugh Holding out my fingers for them to see I take one in my hand Touch it gently, smile, then set it free Sadly I turn, and go Skippin...

    You tell me that it’s over This stage of life is done Its beauty is gone forever Though I thought it’d just begun There’s no way to go back To hold on to the past You say to let it go You knew it couldn’t last But when I have turned away Lost in the shifting crowds When all is ...

    I awoke with a start. The gray night outside my window was fading slowly into pale pre-dawn light. A cock was crowing far away, the golden notes rising up to call the sun. Clear and shrill the sound sighed, a whisper in the morning. I sat up, slipping my feet over the side of the bed and standing on...

    There are so many memories tied in to the meadow behind the old Brookfield house. One of the oldest things I remember doing with my sister there became a yearly tradition, until we moved away. Every winter there would be a few warm days, when the top layer of snow would grow soft and sticky. The nex...

    You have everything before you, traveling adventure I have nothing left behind. You have family and friends, photographs and stories I have ghosts of you to find. Just a lonely car ride home, empty silent rooms Wishing you were here. I am sitting where you sat, seeing what you saw In my hea...

    I know what you are thinking I see it in your face I see frustration glaring Disdain you can’t erase I know its all my fault The yelling and the sighs Each rough push you give me The annoyance in your eyes Just tell me straight the first time Stop pushing me around Don’t yell again...

    Collapse against the wall Just to know that there is something solid Catch you if you fall ‘Cause the arms that used to save have fallen Turn your back and run Haunted by the path that you have chosen Bullet from a gun Must outrun the fate that has you frozen Take the stress in hand H...

    Quietly, fearfully, she walked towards the lake. The trees, rising on either side of the path she followed, cast blue shadows over her white face. She pulled her shawl closer around her shoulders, shivering more from fear than cold, and slowed her walk. She was near the edge of the woods. A barbed n...

    You try to block out the sounds Their laughter brings only more pain You slip off to your dark room, alone With just the cold and the rain You shut the door behind you Don’t bother to turn on a light You press your face to the window Gaze out at the water-filled night The tears you cou...

    Once upon a time...a daisy grew. It sprouted up in the middle of a large covered garden full of tulips, roses, carnations, orchids, and lilies. Amidst all these grand, colorful flowers, the daisy felt quite shy, insignificant, and most weed-like. It was, after all, only very small, very white, and v...

    I walk on the sand along the ocean’s edge. The dark new year’s sky blazes overhead, just as it did on that other night, a year ago. Then, it was not time. I could not go. But now, the sea is calling. Calling with an irresistible urge. As I prepare to answer, to accept the call, I think back to t...
