    My toes squished in the spongy sand with every step I took along the lacey hems of the ocean tide. A sturdy white cloud in the shape of a whale's underbelly had parked itself above the palm trees, motionless in the mild summer breeze. I could see the beach across the short stretch of gli...

    i would be lying if i said… no, i don’t search for your face when i walk into a room or that my eyes don’t follow you to the door when you leave— couldn’t you stay for a few minutes longer? and maybe, say hello to me? you play the violin much too loudly, so I always tune you out ...

    These days, most of us pretend to understand how to love and who to be—seeking that glimmer of momentary admiration. It seems like everyone knows when to laugh and where to cry. There’s a time to be seen, and later, a place to hide. Always, growing up too fast and trying too hard, Always...

    My best friend and I are not suicidal. We’ve talked about it before, dismissing the idea of ending one’s own life but embracing the vast possibilities of not existing, free floating in a state of un-being and not even realizing it. These thoughts are the kind that swallows you up in the bitter ...

    What is the annual four-day event that attracts thousands of high school students from all over the country to Philadelphia? Maybe you’ve seen them this year— adolescent blocs taking over the streets at intervals throughout the day. Occasionally dressed in casual business attire, these teens hav...

    The colors in your eyes are still a mystery to me, but I look forward to the sound of your voice. Though I hardly know when to take your words seriously. But I know your music speaks to me. We’re only beginning to know each other, barely more than strangers in a sense. Nonethele...

    It was a Halloween night unlike any other I’d ever seen. First time stepping out of the house in days since the hurricane first hit. The electricity was back, keeping the rooms lit up and the dairy goods cold, and water was running hot from the faucets. Then I ventured out. I’d seen i...

    I know that I can conceal myself behind library bookshelves and sheet music all through my messy adolescence just to avoid embarrassment or hurt, but hiding won’t keep me grounded or happy; that kind of mentality won’t place the trivial events of my life into perspective. I won’t spen...

    I Two sheets of filmy, golden ash on a pane of murky, riddled glass; No one has seen the sunlight escape for nearly fifty years. II Pieces of broken glass, like shards of ice. To break a mirror and let it’s pieces fall to carpets of exoskeleton leaves. III They face north and watch ...

    I suppose they’re friends for a reason. Many reasons. Bizarre reasons. Now, that is the word that suits them best: Bizarre. And most lovely…kind of. The collected works of strong personalities, and well-intentioned humor, obnoxious and perverse humor that can clear the room and send ...

    Recently, my best friend sent me an affectionate message via Facebook that read GO SU*K A SMURF. This is one of many in a chain of bizarre messages that my friends and I have exhanged online; through this two week long Facebook conversation, we have developed a new set of jargon that includes but is...

    Sitting in the shade of a swiftly wilting magnolia tree with my favorite journal (the one with the painted dandelions and blue butterflies) and my closest friends, was the moment I admitted to myself 'I wish I was someplace else'. And beneath the tacky layer of bawdy joke...

    I can close my eyes and imagine a lifetime spent on this sprawling landscape, watching the sun go down and the stars blinking the sleep from their drowsy eyes. Here, the grass is lush and bristly; the darkness brings a cold damp gauze that settles itself upon every blade. This is where time ...

    Outside, the little kids in my neighborhood were playing ball and riding their bicycles; I could hear their jovial shouts as I, seated on the big flowery couch in the living room, turned the thick starchy pages of a book. It was the selected works of Laura Ingalls Wilder, who was my childhood hero a...
