    I clenched my twinkling, icy blue eyes shut tightly in fear as the cramped box I was packaged in was shaken violently back and forth. I could hardly hear anything in my little home except faint peals of laughter and the distant drone of talking. It was as if I was underwater, so tightly was I wrap...

    Carrying an opened blue umbrella, I stepped up the curb to the sidewalk, avoiding the puddle that had formed on the unlevel concrete. Rain slapped the ground furiously, sparing no one in its deafening anger, especially not my long mess of brown hair that seemed to frizz more with each raindrop. I ...

    When will this hurricane of drama end? I am a different person than I was last year, so carefree like a pink ribbon. The winds and whims of your emotion change as the waves of the ocean, and I fear you will never let me go. Oh, the past! 'Tis charged with mem'ries, a lightning bol...

    I smell damp grass and sticky bodies and Hard pellets of rain sting my body. I step into the tent but I find that It is not a sanctuary after all. You all look at me without Really looking, glancing but then Deeming me unworthy of your Esteemed company; My cheeks flush, and I feel no lar...

    Each day as the hot summer sun softens like a glob of melting butter and the shadows stretch out over fields, I bike quietly down a quaint little road dotted with farms like familiar sunspots. Gravel crunches under my ancient tires and I feel content, relaxing with each turn of the wheel li...

    The sun streams in through a dusty paned window. He sits at a scratched plastic table, his fingers drumming a pattern like a heartbeat, gradually slowing. A hummingbird flits near the open window, his wings buzzing softly as he floats, seemingly motionless. Sharp golden rays glint off ...

    Purple flowers cascade over the casket like a flood. Purple was her favorite color, my great-grandma, regal but lighthearted. Purple shines through the dark sea; people wear treasured lavender necklaces or amethyst bracelets to show respect. Quiet voices, like bees humming softly, bu...

    When I am embarrassed The room feels stuffy Wringing me out from the inside Like a pot of scalding water Being thrown over my body When I am embarrassed The words mix themselves up in my mouth Coming out in an awkward jumble Until I want to disappear like a turtle And hide my head in sh...

    I sit, huddled with all the other candles on the shelf in darkness. Some weep softly, crying invisible wax tears. All of us know that each pounding footstep could be the bringer of our doom. I was given as a gift to the family a few months ago by an elderly aunt. I can remember her picking m...

    The man sat in front of the TV, the dim glow bouncing off the cold beer he was sipping. It had been a long day at work, and all he really wanted was a few hours to himself. He stretched his neck, kneading at the knots buried deep. “Daddy?” A meek voice came from a tiny pajama-clad figure ...
