    And the moonlight is falling on the ocean, a spotlight in the vast darkness. The combination of the salty air and wonder overwhelms you but not too much. The waves ripple and glisten with the power of a thousand diamonds. And you understand. You can see why people so quickly and for so long believed...

    The eraser on the pencil tastes bitter, yet after years of habit, I can't stop chewing it. I sit next to my father trying to work out a math problem that must have come straight from Einstein's workbook. My eyes are lost in a sea of smeared lead. The numbers have melted into each other, and even my ...

    I have been slapped by the same people over and over again With the red handprint still on my cheek I turn to get some more When will I ever learn That most people will never love you as much as you love them That friends are just enemies waiting for you to burn When will I ever learn To ...

    Worn out I look back on my work, after 2 and half-hours only the roof lights are up. With an exasperated sigh I begin to untangle the lights for the bushes. The crunching of footsteps on the snow behind me pauses me for a moment as I turn to see who it is. “Hey there Ms. Smith you want some help ...

    I am sitting here in a place between truth and lie A place a color of gray that no one can define My soul had been poured out the day before The colors it bled was nor black or white But blue like the sky before a rain And red like a person who had nothing to gain Everyone was confused, Wh...

    Love, whispered among friends Something spoken but never seen Felt only in the heart, they say The girl, confused, lies and agrees “Yes I too, have felt thee.” But in truth love is as mysterious as Nancy Drew to this little girl More like a rumor than a fact Love, something that suppo...

    I stare at my reflection, one that has changed many and one that is because of many I look at who I’ve come to be Seconds, minutes, hours pass by Yet I still have no clue as to who I am my curly hair shows flexibility and a kind of fullness that might be me my eyes are the color of dar...

    Me, I believe in my strength to overcome those whose words seek to bring me hurt and shame. I believe in my ability to think logically and rationally in the face of situations that beg me to act unreasonably and compulsively. I believe in my x-ray vision, which allows me to see past the sugary or bi...

    The voices were raised, this was my cue; time to escape. I walked down the hall the striped walls holding many memories. Instead of taking a left I went the right. My new room. The sunlight was pouring in. I smiled at my new bed. The bare walls remained the same despite my mom’s urges to...
