    The magnetic pull of eighty-eight black and white keys on my fingers was present even before my first piano lesson. It started with my mom. She was set on her children having musical knowledge, since she never had the opportunity to take lessons when she was growing up. So, when I was 6, I sta...

    I want to be honest with him, not wear a disguise, but I'm scared of what he'll think of the mess I am inside Other girls get the comfort I so desperately need. They're gathered up into his arms, My stomach fills with greed. So I try to let the mask go. Hoping that he...

    Why are you always running away? Walking so briskly, eyes set right ahead, a clear purpose about your lengthy stride. Why can't you merely slow down a second to say a few words more than hello? Your rushing makes me feel like I'm never your priority. Standing on the sidelines with...

    Anticipation Waiting to run wild Festering, fostering in my brain Like a little kid forced to sit still in front of a glittering candy field So tempting Quietly fidgeting with that awesome, butterfly-in-stomach rush until the final bell sounds and I am released into blissful freedom....

    A single pearl of water clings desperately to the edge of the shiny metal spout, hanging over a porcelain abyss. It shivers and trembles as it gradually augments and loses its grip, weakly struggling. It falls, heart-stoppingly sudden, a perfect drop for a millisecond, before it splatters...

    Your love is dangled right in front of me, Yet so far away. I reach, but my arms can not seem to stretch so close, Like I'm drunk off the silky words you pour in my ears. Do they mean anything to you? Should they mean anything to me? I'm helplessly drowning in your syrupy teasing ...

    Your hand touched my shoulder and from there a thousand electrical sparks raced through every one of my nerves, butterflies took flight in my stomach, wings keeping time with frantic heartbeat my mind was filled with everything and nothing all at once....

    My name cascades off your lips, the air shivers at the sound Your voice conducts a melody to which the five little letters dance around. I swear I hear the smile contained within the breath of air that graciously carries forth my name from lover's lip to lover's ear. The word ...

    Can you see her? This gorgeous apparatus, Nature's finest creation. Goddess of the rose, with hair of diamonds and a voice of sweet honey. Can you feel her? Her presence is in the night, in how the stars wink and the world is hushed when she dances in a garment made of moonlight. S...

    Boiling beneath the sun's knowing stare, delirious in her summer drive, whipping down the interstate, she steers through memory lane with his picture on the console and his song on repeat. The tune echoes into the same wind that steals the ghost of his lips from hers, tingling, lingering...

    Dirty Mind The purple ache of want, raw and bitter, festers within her whenever he crosses by. She is delirious with lust, yet keeps a calm facade, fearing – and wanting – that he'll strip her bare and see the dirt lodged in the crevasses of her mind. She goes home with hopes of clean...

    The feeling I get when you touch my hand, when I catch your eye, when we share a grin, is like the moment before a freefall, like I'm leaping up into a smiling sky or suspended over the edge of a wonderous waterful. A thousand butterflies take flight in my stomach, I am lighter than ai...

    A single blade of grass was left in the world. Oh, there was the turf grass, synthetic grass, carpet grass, fake grass. Thousands of their processed blades covering the soil. But there was only one real blade of grass. One that had been raised from a seed, was genuine, green, and living. One...

    Every morning at the break of dawn, the cry of the guitar would begin to echo down the empty city streets. And as the sun rose higher and the streets grew fuller, the guitar played on, unstopping. It played songs of the water, and songs of the wind. It told stories of distant lands: the faraway ...

    The sky drapes like a blanket, Vastness upon vastness, Like the infinity of my wandering mind. The sun has sunk into the sea, Dragging all remnants of color Down with its creeping rays, Falling slowly, sleepily. Dark liquid velvet Poured over the earth A black silk of disguise What is...
