    I once loved someone as cold, as hard As a diamond. Frozen and flawless. No matter what my methods; How I tried, Strove, Reached higher and higher I almost never touched them. They stood far above me, Aloof, Aloft, Separated. But that may have been A fault of my own For I placed them o...

    A twirling mass of tangled vines All the parts of my life combined Sometimes I get lost in them Following swirls that lead me nowhere But maybe- hopefully I can turn around, and even If I can’t find where it all Started I’ll find a new place, A new stem And begin again...

    WHY ME? That’s what so many ask themselves, When they’re depressed, furious, lonely. I don’t do that, don’t question my misfortunes. Instead, I question my odd fortune. Why do I get up at 5 am? Why do I hate wearing shoes or socks? Why do I squeal when I’m reading manga before schoo...

    It really was a simple thing. Gray, with shimmering abalone buttons, thin straps, and a drawstring at the bottom so it billowed out and then tucked back in around the middle of her thighs. And he loved it. Loved how it emphasized different parts of her depending on which way the wind was blowing, ju...

    White was his favorite color to see her in. The beautiful, pale shade contrasting with her golden-brown skin, making her look at once impossibly pure and irresistibly tempting. White was the first color he saw her in; contrasting with the deep crimson staining her. Her beautiful form sprawled again...

    I step out of the room and to my locker, spinning the dial, trying to get it on the first time. It’s not too hard, the combo is my oldest brother’s birthday, (by some stoke of luck) so I don’t blank out and end up staring at it like I used to at my old locker last year. “Hey!” She walks...

    I, personally, am a fan of anime. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise that I love the character songs of people from the anime. The whole point of the Hetalia series (to sum it up in a sentence, so this doesn’t get too confusing,) is about personifications of countries and how they interac...

    I lean over the table ignoring the stares of those around me. Grinning (recklessly) With a glint in my eyes. “So?” “So what?” “You afraid?” “Hardly.” “Sure” Drawn out, skepticism in a single syllable. Scoffing, taunts. “I’m not scared, you know.” Repeated. ...

    A salamander is a lizard-like creature with a long, streamlined body, short legs, and a blunt nose. Most types of salamander have four toes on their front legs and five on the back legs. The term ‘salamander’ covers roughly 500 species of amphibian. Salamanders have moist skin, so they live in h...

    America should invest in solar and wind energy to aid itself. They are better for the environment, save money, and help fight terrorism. So, be patriotic and get oneself a windmill or some solar panels! Solar and wind energy are undoubtedly better for the environment than the forms the U.S. uses no...

    I keep walking, quickening my pace As the sun falls behind the skyline. Making my way downtown Walking fast Faces past And I’m homebound. The contours of the citizens moving past me blur, I can’t find a familiar face. Staring blankly around Just making my way Making a...

    From 1920 to 1933, alcohol was banned in the United States of America. This period of time, also called Prohibition, should not have happened because alcohol was not a very huge problem; it did not help the economy, and it was not complied with anyway. Alcohol abuse had always been an issue; as l...

    I stood outside, the slight chill in the air rippling across my bare arms and giving me goose-bumps. I shivered a little, but even that scared the one I was trying so desperately to observe. It had lived near my house for a while now, and I had wanted to get to know it better. The ‘it’ in questi...

    Natalya peered around the doorframe, heart jumping as Ivan came into view. She bit her lip, restraining a squeak, as her eyes eagerly traced the outline of his body under his thick coat. He was coming back from a meeting, and she had hid in his house to surprise him. His footsteps grew closer as her...

    I lay on the beach, letting my body press into the sand as I stared up at the stars. I was done with my tasks for the day and I had some precious free time. Simply surviving took most of my life, ironically enough. I had been stranded on this island for a few years now, and this long after the plane...

    I sat at the plastic table, slowly appraising my order. A Happy Meal, three large fries, two Big Macs with everything on them, a gigantic Coca-Cola, and seven ‘fresh-baked’ chocolate chip cookies. As I inhaled the scent, I heard the door jingle as a group of high school seniors walked in. I open...

    I hunched my shoulders against the rain, trudging slowly through the wet streets of London. I had no umbrella, a choice I had not mourned before, but one I regretted now. My thin clothes were soaked; and I shivered slightly, flicking my wet hair fro, my pale face. I smacked the pipe I was carrying a...

    Standing outside, Feeling the joy of the clouds In their tears As I tilt my face Upwards to the rain. Spinning happily On the soft, slick grass While drops spatter the pavement As I listen to The sound of the rain. Breathing deeply To inhale the heralding Of the renewal of life As...

    The common yellow banana can be difficult to peel, but this method is fool-proof. Bananas actually grow upside down; what most believe to be the top (the stem) is actually the bottom. If one attempts to peel from the stem, those unpracticed at peeling bananas or with insufficient wrist strength find...

    In 1899, the United States annexed the Philippines after a short but bloody war with Spain. These rich, plentiful islands full of resources were in great demand. The U.S. saw the Philippines; fighting against Spain so like them when they were rebelling, and decided to step in and aid ‘the spirit o...

    They say I should follow my brother's footsteps, and become a lawyer. But how can I when his shoes are size 15? I have tried my dad's as well, but the shiny, black, leather was too uncomfortable. Mother's high heels with pointed toes- I couldn't balance. It feels like I&...
