    A boy finds himself choked by darkness, his thoughts deadly and his actions lethargic. He is lost; he has forgotten how to smile. If one were to stumble upon a story revolving around such a character, would their initial reaction cause the book to be placed back onto the shelf? Would this story, ful...

    When I heard about the wedding plans—Cinderella and my brother—I couldn’t contain my excitement. I made a lot of noise in the hallway, jumping up and down with the letter in my hand. I hadn’t heard from him since my father sent me away to school. Don’t get me wrong—I love learning. I ...

    I want to hate her. I want to. But hating her would mean hating myself. I don’t want to hate myself anymore. There are voices in my head. They scream at each other more than me, and at me more than the mistakes I make. They used to make me cry sometimes. But crying means release. I don’t want...

    The pictures were still there, ones we’d taken before everything went wrong. We were fourteen, standing on the sidewalk in-between our houses as Lisa snapped pictures of us. The first day of high school; everything changes in high school. We were twelve, holding acoustic guitars and leaning again...

    I tried to picture her face, but it wouldn’t come together. I remembered her hair—short, straight, and blonde—but it was probably different now. I remembered her laugh, and the way she’d used to play with my hair when we were sitting in the sand, because it had been exactly like hers back th...

    They say you should never think “if only.” The deceiving words play with your mind and tear your smile right off your tear-stained face. Frankly, I don’t care what they say. If they knew I was six months away from adulthood with chapped, virgin lips, it would all be over. They’d give m...

    The door closes gently behind me, and my journey begins. I travel down the steps that were once trees, never walked on until nineteen years ago. I travel down the asphalt after taking my deepest of breaths, and the reminiscing slowly begins. I recall all of the pictures drawn on that pavement—two...

    Frustration and anger cloud my ability to think, as if a thick coating of distracting goo has glued itself to my brain. It weaves itself around it until I have lost all hope of ever finding the thoughts that I have lost. What happened, I wonder, to just this morning, when everything made sense? Why ...

    I looked left to right and held my breath as I ran across the yard. Stumbling up to the window, I released the air I had been holding in my lungs and pressed my hands against it. I pushed up with undying hope and climbed through as painful memories flooded my discombobulated mind. I closed the windo...

    You are the monster haunting my child-like dreams in the middle of the darkest nights. You keep me lying awake in frustration, in fear—even in anticipation—as I toss and turn too many times to count. The minutes pass; I begin to pace around my room, digging through the deepest lobes of my brain ...

    I glanced at the open casket with a heavy heart and found that I could not pull my eyes away. The beauty and tranquility that I saw at moment one warmed my heart. Then, at moment two, I remembered the tragedy that had led to this “beauty.” And then moment three came, and I felt guilty for even t...

    I walked aimlessly down the hall. I had no idea where I was going, but I knew why. The words “Please send at 9:40” were written on a yellow piece of paper my Spanish teacher had handed me. I knew right away what it was about. I walked as slowly as I could. When I passed a security guard o...
