    Hands tremble as legs begin to uncontrollably shake, I slide open a small drawer as tears begin to race– down my cheeks, the Contents of a single vanity drawer can bring so much– pain. Hairbrushes, Nail Polish, Lipstick– Volcano Red, starting to feel sick to my stomach, half expe...

    I want to feel the lights flickering down on my skin, Flashlights, Let the rays open up past the thin white strips of imagination, But I will not look down, I am afraid of heights. Don not tease me with the gusts of wind, Sweep me off the ground if you dare, A challenge presents itself, I ...

    Turn away from my ice cold eyes, I'm challenging you without a reason besides, The fact that I am threatened by you, False confidence reverberates from my hollowed out heart, You best move on, Before you give me a reason to start, Pouring out venom, My words settle on my tongue like bitt...

    Your skin is flawless, every lock of chocolate brown forms perfectly around your face, Your clothes are all pink, along with your coach purse, and your hand is clasped at your waist for a picture pose. You live the perfect life so it would seem, But you’re just a robot to me, There’s nothin...

    So much space, A growing separation that can never be replaced, Bittersweet, It is so bittersweet. Who is to say I am right, but I know for a fact that you are wrong, What I wouldn’t give to go back and tell myself that I need to make an effort to get along. And you are getting frailer by t...

    I never thought I’d fall this far, But it’s not the first time I’ve walked down this broken road, The gravels coming up, The fog is moving in slow, And I look up to the sky because this is earth isn’t home....

    Just keep on going, You are on the right track and you know it, Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise, Their words are full of venom, And they are waiting for you to fall. But you have the antidote, So even after they sink their teeth in, You have no excuse not to keep on going, Not e...

    Lets go back to when the smiles were not forced, To when our words were not as sharp as knives, To when life was uncomplicated, And we were naive young lovers just starting to experience life. Fresh out of college you made me your wife, Can't we just go back to when our love could fill a...

    Just one drink, A car ride home, One single tree, a telephone pole, One single crash, One straight-A male student who had his whole life ahead Flipped car, airbags, Road covered with shards of glass. Outbreak of fire, Panic, pain, unconsciousness, Blaring sirens, arrival of an ambulan...

    If I had to choose between a river or an ocean, I’d chose the ocean, The ocean goes on forever like all of life’s opportunities, A glistening body of water it reflects the sun, A reminder that better times will continue to come, The river flows too quickly, I would hate to miss out, After ...

    My fuel tanks running low on gas, And I have been driving all night, No destination just trying to get away, This is the first time I have been completely on my own, This is the first time I have been able to make decisions for myself. No one is telling me which way to turn, Nothing is hold...

    I’m Tugging on my black dress, It’s a perfect fit, And I’m looking for imperfections in the mirror but my skin is flawless, My hair lies perfectly across my head, And my eyes don’t give away the pain I have felt or the tears I have shed in the past week. I’m entering the Church, My ...

    I just wanted to let you know that I think TeenInk.com is a great thing. Thank you for letting teens have a sanctuary and an outlet where we can post our work. Writing song lyrics and just writing in general is so important to me. I just wish my mom understood that. Recently I shared one of my l...

    I love you even though you won't ever love me back, I think about you daily although I probably don't even cross a second of your mind, I reach out to you in my darkest dreams but I wake up before you ever extend your hand out in return, I wash away the pain in my soul that you never kn...

    Photo albums covered in dust lay scattered across the hardwood floor, Only previously touched by the former owners of the house before, Containing happy memories from happier times, Yet holding secrets of what was to come in their future lives. A wedding album holds seventeen pictures, Half o...

    Hair blowing Heart racing Hands grasping the bar in front of me for dear life Knuckles white Face pale Regretting my decision to look down at the tiny specks that are people down below me Eyes clamping shut Holding my breath Anticipating the drop that’s coming next Stomach lurching ...

    My heart is splitting at the seams, Nothing is as it seems, A bunch of empty dreams, And you were the center of my pain, The most disappointing of heartaches. I’m letting go of all my expectations, And putting up a shield over my heart, I’d rather be numb then feel the pain, I’d rath...

    Slipping away without a purpose, My name no one will ever know. Before the ground turns frozen again I will have breathed my last breath. My body will have matched the temperature of the frosty air. Those suffering with cystic fibrosis also Have begun to pull out their bucket lists, Leaving ...

    There are soldiers among us, who don’t don a uniform, Who don’t fight for our country, Instead they have the give every ounce of strength they have, To fight for themselves. These soldiers don bandanas to cover up their loss of hair, Wear oxygen masks to help them breathe, And put on bra...

    [I need you whenever black & white fades to grey when I can’t see any more] Frozen hands hold me back, from reaching out when I need it I don’t want to alarm anyone with the ice cold truth All I am, all I was Is left floating undecided in the air Like a train going nowhere Like a p...

    Sitting at a table in my school cafeteria, I looked around, slowly taking in everything. For one of the first times in my life, I realized I had been seeing without really seeing for the past two years. Student after student passed my table carrying a tray with that day's lunch special, but i...

    I give them the simple answer when I’m asked what I want to do with my life, “journalism” I always say, although my dreams are far from it. I see myself in Hollywood, right on set Finishing writing that day’s script for my new hit show Telling fellow cast members what color dress I’m...

    Yesterday I went on a journey Completely oblivious to where it would take me Like a twisting road, I couldn’t see around the bend I started out unsure of what I was doing Then I took a deep breath in and saw the beauty Had I missed out on everything? A river flowed to my left, I heard ...
