    “In a foreign place the saving grace was the feeling that it was a heart that he was stealing…” the words swam in my head as a sat alone by a door at Hamblen Elementary. I was sure that today would be the worst memory of this school so far. My heart was beating like crazy and my breathing was ...

    Joah was crying, as usual. I probably should have thought about that before I pushed him. His wails were bouncing themselves downstairs, I knew Mommy would come up and ask what happened. I couldn’t let her know I was a little devil or I’d never be able to take toys from my brothers again and get...

    “Hey, Lindsay, will you go out with me?” I looked up from my hazardously messy locker straight into Bacob Jlack’s eyes that were like to big dark roasted coffee beans beneath his thick raven black eyelashes. My heart started speeding as it rushed blood into my cheeks, burning the underside of ...

    Dust dribbles from your fairy fingers they bind my soul to wings my fingers to flurries as teardrop snowflakes kiss my cheeks and flounce to my candy-cane lips. I hold onto the beauty of your birdsong words I hum their gumdrop tune the one that made rose petals creep to my milky ch...

    “Bye Mom!” I called as I hopped out of the house, it was about 8:30 am and I was going out for my morning jog. My iPod pounded music into my ears as I made my way down the busy New York streets. My breathing became ragged as I reached the park and I stopped for a rest. It was a beautiful Sep...

    The article, “The Other Side,” by Andrew L., Saratoga, CA, had me laughing to tears. It’s so true; all fantasy novels have that tyrant who eventually gets killed by the hero. After a while it gets boring. It was great to here the other side of the story. I shared the story with all my friends ...

    Summer vacation. A time for every teen to sit back, relax, and enjoy the pureness of the world without teachers. You may find some teens sitting at home playing video games, watching TV., trying to get all that smartness gunk out of their heads, but there are others who are out trying to soak up all...

    Our time has run out I wish you’d stay All of this was child’s play What’s this about? To you I shout “Our love won’t fray!” Our time has run out I wish you’d stay But you’ll leave without a doubt My world is gray And it’s time to say Our time has run out...

    A lie here and there The truth you’ll never share A darkness in you eyes Keeps me from your lies As if you really care Like a fire’s flare It was never fair You are deaf to my cries Where did you go? Where did you go? We have always been a pair ...

    Clumps and flakes Dandruff in the sky They swirl and fly Like frosting on cake Undisturbed where they lie Let out a delicate sigh A quiet bed My world’s only tie The birds, they fled In the winter’s dead From the churning cold A blizzard led The white, so bold More magnificent...

    The steady, quiet rhythm of the lake Moving back and forth on the pearly beach Hypnotizing, my soul it will soon take Beauty just beyond my desperate reach Orbs shining in the abyss of the night Big and small clusters of the Milky Way Sowed to the dark velvet of the twilight Something yo...

    An ode to you, dear Jacob Black The one you love won’t love you back You gave your heart and soul to her You prized Bella much more than gold or myrrh You were her sunshine in the dark And the life within her set a spark For hours she watched you repair a bike Cuz’ you knew that’s wha...
