    This summer I am working as a virtual editorial intern for the online-only magazine Women Writers, Women Books. This is the first time I have experienced working virtually, and I love it! It’s very flexible and allows me the opportunity to work at odd hours, such as early in the morning or late at...

    I thought I knew what love was so long ago; It was the feeling of never wanting to let someone go. But lying here with you, I realize it's so much more; Looking into your eyes, I see what I'm fighting for. It's the desire to wake up every day to your face, And admitting that some...

    Circus tent filled with people, Silently watching the ring. Their expressions are glassy; They have seen this show before. Dim the lights overhead; Every face tilts towards the sky: There's me, with my broken smile, Walking on a tightrope, Braided with whispered secrets, Bound at the e...

    You showed me how to love; You taught me how to care. Soon I learned to worry, And found out how much I could bear. I gave everything away, Well, everything that mattered, But the pieces you returned Were dirty, crooked, shattered. Though I knew how to fight, For you, I would give up. Now ...

    Chapter 1 That could’ve been me, I think, pondering the situation he was currently facing. I could’ve been standing right beside him, with nowhere to live and nothing to my name besides the clothes I was wearing. But let me rewind a little. It all started on the very first day of second seme...

    Once upon a time, in a dense bamboo forest in southern China, there lived three young pandas. They all lived together in a cozy cottage built out of bamboo and other wood, with a thatched roof of leaves. It was the perfect home, warm in winter and cool in summer, surrounded by the seemingly endless ...

    I look in your eyes, And see nothing at all; I picture your smile, And just shrug. I talk with our friends, And never ask about you; I see you with her, And I laugh. I browse through your pictures, And my heart never skips; I listen to your words, And hear silence. I remember your laugh,...

    I'm a song that doesn't rhyme, I'm a clock that's out of time, I'm a book that's gotten wet, I'm a bill with unpaid debt, I'm a bulb that doesn't glow, I'm a ball that never rolls, I'm a fence that runs uneven, I'm a faith no o...

    It's all said and done, It's over, I have lost, and she has finally won. I've given up the fight; I'm not your only one. So I guess that's all I have to say - I've had it; I'm so tired of this game you play. You wanna keep both of us happy, but there's ...

    I was clear like crystal, All light diffused, none absorbed. Surrounded by a frame Of thick, polished wood Attached by screws twisted in tight enough To strip their threads. I was frosted with icy crystals that, When exposed to scorching heat, Flowed down like tears. Flung upon me were Th...

    Your mind is a blank Coloring book, And people are The crayons: Some crayons are sharp; Thick outlines of purple, Definition and precision, Emphasizing every shape; Some crayons are dull; Crooked swirls and Messy blotches of beige - Wax smeared like finger paint; Some crayons are b...

    Why is the one that you chose, me? When you look in my eyes, what do you see? You know, I'm really not that great, But telling you now - it's a little too late. I know the feel of a broken heart, Like your chest's been stabbed with a poison dart, I don't want to cause tha...

    How can you do it? How can you Put your arms around me; Like all this time Is forgotten; Like I'm alive again, Instead of lost In oblivion; As if you never Called me those names, Threatened me, Put her and everyone Over me. How can you, When I finally think I'm over it, Ove...

    You said you'd be there forever, Or at least "'Till we must be apart." You told me you loved me completely - To you, I handed over my heart, And for awhile, everything was ok, The days, they passed by in bliss. My mind kept your words stuck on replay And my lips always l...

    This news – so sudden – Can't be true. A trick, a joke: Something fake Created for pleasure, Designed for pain. It Didn't Happen Is your mantra, 'Cause denial is Your Novocaine. Their arms surround you, Words of comfort Escape between tears. You duck away, Run, run like she Told...

    Tears, they were once Rare to be seen. Now they fall down - Daily routine, Only sometimes Can I forget, Temporary - That you can bet, The pain won't stop; Often I pray. This constant hurt Won't go away, Being with you I don't regret. I'm scared of what Hasn&#...

    Why do people say the things they do? Why is it different between me and you? Why does life turn out the way it does? Why is the answer always "Just because..."? Why are the things we want forbidden? Why are the meanings always hidden? Why can't we control how we feel? Wh...

    This is the only way, Way to escape, Escape from the pain, Pain that can kill. Kill not the body - Body is intact - but inside, Inside your mind, Mind and soul die, Die so slowly - Slowly, and you can't stop it, It just keeps on hurting - Hurting, except when you escape, Escape by d...

    Our eyes used to lock, Now they never cross paths - An invisible barrier Built from the past. You were my addiction, And I was yours. Now we're trying to cleanse The drug from our pores. Our fantasies centered Only on each other, Now our daydreams are filled With thoughts of som...

    When there's nothing left, Then you have nothing to lose. Give it your best - Give it all that you've got. Don't give up, don't give in, There's just no reason; The way that you've been Obviously isn't working, When those that you care for are stolen aw...

    Standing on the sidelines, Knowing you're making a mistake, Unable to help as I watch your heart break. How can you love her When she treats you this way? Why give up your heart To someone who'll say: "You love me more, And we both know it's true. I won't tell ...

    Just something we tell ourselves - A smile for the camera. We both know it won't end well, But still we're gonna try it. Every kiss is just another one To add to the collection. Will this turn into Just For Fun, Even if we want otherwise? It doesn't quite seem real yet; I...

    Forget about the fights, But realize why you lost. Enjoy the things you have, But don't forget the cost. Forget simple conversations, But remember ones that mattered - Times your heart skipped a beat, Or others when it shattered. Don't lose sight of where you're going, T...

    When I turn on that radio, And what's playin' is our song, I have to remind myself that I shouldn't sing along. When I see your face, And you're smilin' down at me From the frozen image of a photo Of how it used to be, I have to try so hard To remember to forget...
