    I sit silently reading memories, triggering emotions I’ve managed to tuck inside. I cast away the tears. You are strong enough to bear it. How long until the dam crumbles and the wave of emotions swirl around me? When will the water wash over me, carrying me away? Will the tears ever locate ...

    I’ve always wanted to be different I’ve always wanted to be the girl who leads, not follows I’ve always wanted to be honest Or independent, needing no one’s support I’ve yearned for my parents approval Or for a nod of respect from my brother To be someone’s role model And somehow,...

    When we met, I wasn’t so sure about you I’ve been known to be skeptical but I was wrong to let my guard down nonetheless we toppled each others guarded walls erased our sacred lonesome lines popped our bubbles of comfort even spilled our secrets only to drink them back up again I let myse...

    I sit silently reading memories, remembering emotions I’ve managed to tuck inside. I cast away the tears. You are strong enough to bear it. Tears themselves, are so light, too beautiful to be correlated with sadness. The ache inside makes me quiver as the pounding of my heartbeat calms me down. I...

    Analyzing you as you lay there in that hospital bed, weak but alive, years full of memories came rushing towards me, hitting me like a bullet. 7th grade science suddenly replays itself next to me and I see a much younger self of you and I. I watch our friendship blossom as we get closer. Your laugh ...

    I really hate how you can know someone your whole life and not know them at all. You might know what they're going through but you'll never know they're whole story. Their failures, accomplishments, or memories. What they're thinking or how they think. You might pass a stranger i...

    Every once in a while, a tiny part of me can no longer keep going along with the act anymore. Bits and pieces of my heart ache for the one thing I can no longer hold in my arms. My heart aches for the summer heat and the endless happy summer days where I was never alone. Where I was smothered by a l...

    You've got a special way with animals, dogs in particular. The way you pet them, soothe them, or hold them. I saw the way you admired them. I saw a sparkle in your eye; they were full of devotion. Your whole face lit up and a smile that i didn't recognize took place on your face. A smile t...

    I've always wanted to be a writer. From the second I knew how to spell, talk, and write, i knew. There was just something spectacular about making a story come to life on paper. There was something special and different about each and every character. Each story told a different story, had a di...

    Sometimes I feel like my heart is suddenly beating to a foreign beat, unwilling to lend me it's story or explain the exhilarating speed it picks up for no reason. As if my heart patterns, i can no longer tame. Its taken control, oblivious of the future heartbreaks that i will later experience. ...

    It was halftime and we were losing…by a lot. My team and I brought our sweaty and out of breathe selves towards our frustrated coach. He didn’t look happy, but neither did we. Even though he hadn’t shown any sign of pride in our undefeated season, we knew he cared. Or at least we thought so....

    Artistic people are the ones who hurt more. Knowing that no one plans to hear what they're saying. So, they speak in a new way hoping to be heard. Using their beautiful talents to help them get by life, day by day. Drawing, writing, or even making, are ways to use that building pain and turn it...

    I miss how we used to fight I miss how we used to yell Because in the darkness you were my light I miss how you caught me when I fell I miss the way you were always right How everything with you went well And you were the one who told me life can also bite I miss and hold on to the last thing...

    You made me who I am today, You always knew the right words to say You let me express myself in ways unknown With you by my side I’ll never be alone You let me make my own mistake Even when everything was at stake You let me be, as long as I knew real from fake You always told me never to l...

    Anything can happen in a minute, i could smile or i could cry, another hi, could turn to goodbye, i could learn to look someone in the eye, and still lie, i could learn how to fly, and maybe reach the sky, maybe meet a nice guy, and love could be nearby, i could regret something and ask my...

    I hate moving, but for me it’s a part of life. I hate change, but my parents never thought twice on asking for my feelings. So I go along with it. I hate the idea of leaving every familiar thing behind. Starting over can have its up’s and down’s, but I only manage to think about the down’s. ...
