    Crowds of people flow like wine. I bustle through the crowd looking for someone to talk to. I see gaggles of women flocking like birds. I hear my heart pound and I hold on to it. I look up and my eyes bulge. “This cannot be,” I say to myself. “I must be staring at Aphrodite.”...

    Every morning I walk to that crappy pile of bricks. I bustle through the halls crowding with students as grossly overweight security guards usher us like cattle. My school is a weak bridge. Administration focuses on budget cuts as students are left to rot. The bridge sags closer and closer...

    My feet stroke the white sand, As I sit down in a hammock. Back and forth, back and forth, Goes the hammock. The sun is my massage therapist stroking, My body with his gleaming rays. The waves crash onto the shore. The wave is a filmy dancer, Collapsing into foam....

    The sun massages me as I wallow in my muddy pen. A fresh smell of leftovers wafts through the air. Massive gobs of spit flow from my mouth as I breathe in the delectable aroma. As I indulge in my hedonism, a choir of terrified squeals thunders harmoniously. “What’s going on?” I squea...

    Czar Nicholas steps downstairs with his family. The Romanovs quiver in terror like an after shock. “Papa,” cries Anastasia, “where are we going?” “I don’t know,” says the Czar, “maybe we’re going home.” Nicholas freezes. He sees a man with a hammer and sickle armband th...

    Through Moses’ eyes, he glimpses a shimmering light. The craggy hills gleam in the distance. The Hebrews sigh in relief. Shouts of joy sound throughout the desert. Grizzled Moses sighs as he hobbles toward the mountain. Moses sees the flaming bush. “Moses,” God’s voice bo...

    Freshman year of high school is like stepping into middle school’s chewed up, barfed out gum. The bullying, bureaucracy, and conformity leaves a foul aftertaste. High school tastes revolting, but at least it tastes slightly better than middle school school. But with an army of friends by ...

    “Iceberg,” a voice shrieks as my blood freezes like it’s submerged in ice. “It’s nothing,” I assure myself. “This ship is unsinkable.” The silent night erupts in an thundering orchestra divided into sections of paranoia, chaos, and fear. Ice cold water rises to my feet as the ...

    Karma is the tree of knowledge. As you approach the serpent, it hisses in your ear, “eat the fruit.” You try to ignore the serpent, but the ripe fruit makes you salivate. The serpent’s voice sounds in your head like an iPod on eternal replay. If you pluck the fruit from the tree, i...

    Pessimism is a bone-dry glass. Gradually, the glass rises with water. Soon the floor is soaked with water, and Pessimism screams as he thrashes while drowning. Anarchy walks over. He eyes the glass, and twirls his handlebar mustache. “Tee hee,” he sniggers. Anarchy sneaks over...

    I gaze at her. Her brown hair flowing down her hips. She stares at me. “Hi....” I stammer, as spit drools from my gaping mouth. My face is like an evening sky suffused with red. Ellen approaches me. Steam emerges from my ears, and my heart throbs. My eyes curvet from the sock...

    As my stomach contracts, my eyes picture steak. A big, plump cut of meat with blood seeping through my mashed potatoes. My mouth widens as the tender flesh dissolves into my mouth. You’re like a musical in my stomach....

    “Zane, did you work on the Common App today?” Sweat exudes down my brow like tree sap, I pause. “Zane,” Mom screams, “DID.YOU.WORK.ON.COMMON.APP?” “Ok, Zane,” I assure myself, “just tell Mom the truth.” As my legs oscillate like a pendulum, I walk downstairs. Mom glar...

    My eyes slowly blacken as I try to close them. My spit dribbles on my desk. “Don’t fall asleep,” I mutter to myself. The “teacher” glares at me as my head lands on the desk. “Young man,” he barks, “pay attention in class!” “Zane, not young man,” I say to myself. ...

    As the plane rises in the sky, Maryland fades away like a dying rain storm. 2 hours on the plane sprint by and I look out my window. I see a heavenly beacon of sunlight. As the plane lands. I step down from the plane, the Florida sun kisses me and strokes my neck gently. “Now th...

    Jamal looked in the mirror and washed the blood from his bruised eye and mouth. School was no more than a daily prison, where the teachers were the wardens and the students were the prisoners. Except there were no iron bars and Jamal did not wear an orange jumpsuit. He wished he was somewhere else w...

    As the sun vanishes beneath the sky, And night takes over, you enter a new world. Dreams! Colors swirl all around like dancers. Thoughts of your failed test melt like ice cream in the blazing sun. As the sun peeks it’s head through the sky, The morning’s vacuum sucks you out....

    The movie industry is like a baseball game. Sometimes a movie could be a home run or it strikes out. Take a trilogy like Spider Man, the first two movies were home runs but the third one struck out. But Pixar never strikes out. All of their movies have either been good or outstanding. Their movies a...

    Sequels! Why are they made? Mainly, to capitalize on the success of it’s predecessor and to dilute the charm that it’s predecessor had. Take a horror movie franchise like “Saw” or “Friday the 13th”. Same killer, new victims! Same killer, new victims! Same killer, new victims! It seems as...

    Lunch is above me. My stomach roars like an enraged lion. I lunge upon the bridge and expose my claws, gleaming like a row of knives, and I prepare to flay him. “Wait for my brother,” my lunch stammers “he is much fatter.” He vanishes like mist....

    I step in the room. Trembling, as her majesty glares at me. Her throne is lined with gleaming rubies and her eyes blaze like white-hot iron. She clutches a cherry-red box. And beckons me. Why? She glares at me and dreadful words Exit the corridors of her mouth. I must bring back her ...

    Maladroit Gauche slashed his throat while shaving, burned his arm while cooking breakfast, and had his cruiser battered as he crashed into the walls of the police station. He scalded the receptionist by splashing coffee all over her dress and tripped over a stapler and got it stuck on his head. ...
