    I hear about you and her. It hurts knowing it’s not me. Wondering what would have happened if you got your sex. You say you love her. You tell her to marry you. You know she gave you almost everything you want. I’m trying to move on. The attachment is fading. In the back of...

    I stand here Thinking of a more clear future where the gray is gone and I can see everything. The pounding in my head holds the stress, while my eyes continue to try and see. I become determined like a badger preparing for attack. To hold the future, the one that I want to live with, even if it ...

    Brown eyes flutter Soft lips spread Head tilts Toward the white bed. Seduction calls, Pulls me in, The beauty of one With flawless skin Slow and steady I follow him there Incredible tan body Gorgeous brown hair Closer and closer I get near, Forget my mistakes, Forget my fear. ...

    The clock I thought, is so queer, something untouchable. It happened so fast. One day he was there, the next, gone. I didn’t know he was going. He was a voice on the phone. The one we held to our ear. Or might as well have been. Finally, words were spoken. All I heard was fatherless. Th...

    The screaming girls, The barking dogs, The smelly cats, And I am home. The dirty dishes, The empty cabinets, The messy table, And I am home. The couch-less living room, The floorless dining room, The useless TV, And I am home. My freezing room, My old collection, My wonderful fam...

    Lightning, lit the sky. Sitting, on a concrete wall. Laughing, at a silly comment. Fearing, a strike to our flesh. Experiencing, the incredible thrill. Wandering, up the damp pavement. Running, shirtless in the rain. Wondering, how it can be so perfect. Relaxing: Sit...

    I like you, a lot. I think I’m falling in love with you. I hate it’s happening. I want to erase the first time we met, first time we kissed, first time we laid in your bed. You can hurt me so easily. I’m vulnerable to you and you have no idea. I think you like me, or I like to t...

    Cold. Torn. Sad. Broken. A broken soul Now feels nothing. Nothing and everything. Shame. Pity. Disgrace. All the things A person never wants to feel. Like an ice cube placed in a bowl of hot water, disappearing faster than you can imagine, blending into the surroundings. The call outw...

    We were one. One family in separate houses. All belong together. Not in that way though… Cancer came. He was gone, (my second dad) fast. Each family torn, hurt, broken, distraught. Reaching for the impossible… Moments later, or that’s the feeling, we lost another. Gone. Not from c...

    Like a thief, stealing in the night, the one that gets away. The one who will strike again. Like a parent, who cheats on their spouse, the one that gets away. The one who will do it again. Like cancer, spreading through a body, the one that gets away. The one that will never leave. Like...

    The trees blow in the subtle wind Birds chirp in the swaying trees The sun shines on the chirping birds The kids run under the shining sun Rolling hills become a playfield for the running kids Spring flowers make home from the rolling hills L...

    The blood ran down my face. My head was throbbing. I could feel the cold blade of metal deep in my arm. I looked up and saw the stranger come at me again. Scared of everything, I ducked down as he dove at me with another. I swiftly rolled to the side as he crashed into the bookcase behind me. The cr...

    So I like you. A lot. In fact, I think I’m falling in love with you. And I hate that it’s happening. I want to erase the first time we met. The first time we kissed. The first time we laid in your bed. I don’t want this to happen to me because you can now hurt me so easily. I’m completely vu...

    When some play it safe, others go hard. When some stick to the rules, others break them beyond belief. In a world that is shaped to what society wants, we push against it. We do what they say no to because nobody likes rules. People are always telling us what to think, what to believe, who to listen...

    It’s in your head and you can’t say it. Words cannot be said about it. You know that as soon as you say it out loud you are admitting it’s true, and if you do that, well, you have to accept it. Things in this life are hard and complicated. Sometimes we want to scream because we can’t say wha...

    How could I have let myself be fooled? I’ve always tried to be the kind of person who doesn’t fall for that. The fact of the matter though, is that is did happen to me. Sitting in the woods, crying for two hours. I’m so mad at myself for not listening to the people who love me. So mad because ...

    We spend our whole lives looking for that one person to make us happy. The one person who will be there for us, love us, and be our other half. Within that search though, we change and shape into an entirely new person. The people we meet and the “relationships” we experience change who we are l...

    It’s so funny what one smile can do. We hear stories about how one smile saved a persons life. Being happy is such an important part of life. Without happiness, we are literally empty. Everyone knows the feeling of being hurt or feeling hallow inside whether it be from losing a loved one or not ha...

    Home. The definitions are infinite. We will never find one that gives it more meaning than the way we define it. Home is where I can be me and you can be you. Home is where the heart is. Home is the safest place on earth. Home are the people you can trust the most. Home is truth, trust, faith, belie...

    Sometimes what’s in your heart isn’t in your mind and what’s in your mind isn’t in your heart. It’s those times that we must decide what is important. The heart is an incredible piece of art. It is the thing that shows us true colors. We would literally not be living without it. One day,...

    Change. It happens from the time we are born. We grow, we learn, and we live. Of all the things that change around us, sometimes we forget to see what changes in us. We start out as simple beings, wanting nothing more than love and attention. As we get older, that love and attention becomes desirabl...

    It’s twelve a.m. You are sitting around a campfire with some friends. One takes out some swishers and another takes out some vodka. You sit in the circle as each thing is passed from person to person. Finally, it reaches you. You stare at it. Some people will do it without a thought, but tonight, ...

    The wind was strong. I glanced off the front porch into the large abyss of angry water. Things had been different in the house. Mom was always yelling, dad was always swearing, Emma was always crying, and I was always listening. It’s strange how one death could change our family so much. Most woul...
