    Dear Mister, I know I’ve never told you this But you have pretty eyes Eyes that are blackened ash. It’s desperate, I know When you’ll get this letter. But I’ll tell you something. It won’t be long after You kiss those full ruby lips On that masquerade face. You’ll just wonder w...

    I’ll begin by revealing Erik. He’s not dead; the Italian man just put his fake obituary in the newspapers. Erik’s already left the hidden room in my local theatre. He’s gone, and I don’t know where he is now. Maybe I should start even further back. Back to when I was first given a role ...

    My name’s Robert. But most people call me Elmo. Don’t ask me where the name comes from. It just so happens that I like dressing in red and have a liking for cute things, like stuffed animals or maybe girls. Yeah, I’m only fourteen. But I’ve definitely hit puberty. How? Well, I can throw a...

    There were so many sounds and sights to see in the park. Like the water rushing out of the fountain in a pretty display, or the green leafy trees that seemed to sway with my skipping. I was a part of this picture puzzle. With my hand holding tightly to my little brother’s, I jumped and ran, skippe...

    The witch—I could see her, there, next to the trash she lived in. I shifted. This hunt was by far the longest and the most tedious. I had been searching this witch for weeks and even now a sense of impatience was in me. Witches did not have souls. They couldn’t feel, nor could they think. ...

    Cecilia didn’t know why she was here. Actually, she didn’t know how she even came here. One moment she was fighting at home, the next, she was in this darkened theatre. Heavy tapestries hung over the Gothic windows, cobwebs springing eerily at the edges. The curtain was closed, the dust cloud...

    It’s funny how people never seem to notice things. You see the broken car by the edge of the highway, the gas leaking out of the tank, dripping slowly down onto asphalt. You note the smashed windows, the tires slashed into thin strips, and the woman dead in a darkened red puddle. And then yo...

    Through those eyes I see a blur Of ink running. Through those eyes I see a shadow Of screams crying. Through those eyes I see a stain Of ruby spilling. Through those eyes I see a slash Of pains striking. Through those eyes I see a mark Of yellow shimmering. Through those eye...

    My house is full of open doors All the world or me to see This is the place my family Stole my heart from me My house is full of half-open doors Now that we’re alone and poor My wings can’t open, fly, and soar Like when I had met them long before My house is full of closed doors I m...

    On the bus ride, I pull out my earphones and turn on my music player. Metal and rock pulse through my ears, but I hear nothing. What if he asks me to the dance? Snorting, I look at my reflection in the grimy window. Yeah right, girlie. Now, of all times, you choose to become a chick. Not goin...

    He watches through his dark eyes. I sit in class, spinning through my cramming from yesterday night. The blank page in front of me was slowly filling with black ink splotches. Behind me, I could see his fan club eye my paper, leaning so close that they could read me answers. With a grimace, I ...

    I’ll never know her touch Her feel, her wonder I’ll never know his warmth His cries, his thunder I told her to go far To go somewhere else, unless— I told him I’d do so Because that was better for us I watched her fade into the distance Into a memory, into a dream I watched him...

    There is nothing here. Still I can feel and know that he is nearby. I pray and see nothing. Yet I can lose myself with him, standing there, as he moves his hands, his lips, his soul— To the one I desire least. Sun, shine! I call to the skies where I do belong. He cares not about m...

    Tell me my name In a whisper or a word So I may speak of the world Through these lying lips Yet giving nothing at all Tell me my name In a motion or a wave So I may see the world Through these hollow eyes And bringing nothing at all Tell me my name In an emotion or a feel So I may to...

    She stood in the corner, With no one around. She stood in the corner, With no one to hound. She stood in the corner, With no one to feel. She stood in the corner, With no one ever real. She stood in the corner, With no one to see. She stood in the corner, With no on likely to be....

    Dusk’s hour arrives Its blue casts A shady glow His words speak To me Like an open book History begins to Wear the past Shearing it to fine points He wants to be A change To the world Ravens fly freely As pure birds sink to the ground At the coming night I never know The ...

    I’ll tell you I hate you, But then I’ll kiss you. I’ll tell you I elate you, But then I’ll break you. I’ll tell you I tolerate you, But then I’ll reject you. I’ll tell you I calm you, But then I’ll agitate you. I’ll tell you I know you, But then I’ll ignore you. I’ll ...

    A typical American school has the usual crowd: the Goths in their own dark corner, the geeks that play chess and instruments, the obnoxious wanna-bes that roam the school, and…the populars. Of course, you could be one of Them, if you know what I mean. They, who laugh at others. They, who eye th...

    You may ask the question: Is something ever fair? Take life for example. Something, someone everyday does something out of greed, hunger, or passion. It does not necessarily have to be “fair” or “bad”. No, nothing is ever fair. Even a pie split into pieces and shared equally, you still have ...

    If you killed somebody, is that wrong? If you stole something, is that wrong? Now, tell me, what if that person you killed had tortured you for long, endless years, or the item you stole was medicine for your sick family? Adolf Hitler, though a racist and unjust leader, once said, “If a thief s...

    There are many things we can say. There are many things we can do. But there is one thing that we cannot do…and that is to think. Sometimes, perhaps on a cold winter night, you hear someone say that people must think before they act. But look at the chilling memories that keep you awake through...

    Sometimes I would wonder About what happened to her Did she ever feel so like a fool To end what we once had? Sometimes I would think About the way her eyes glowed Was she always like that Or was I imagining? Sometimes I would stare About at nothing What made her so special That it br...
