    I opened the door and a sock fell to the ground. I picked it up, still cool and damp from the wash. As I moved the clean clothes into the drier, I very carefully counted all of the socks. There were fifteen pairs. I sighed in relief. “Good, they’re all still here.” Soon, the machine was qu...

    I am from pictures, From crayons and markers of every kind. I am from cameras pointing at clouds, Taking pictures of unfamiliar shapes And swirls of shining colors. I am from the woods over the hill, Where I climbed high in the maple trees And felt the limbs sway back and forth Underneath me...

    Suffocating hot days began long after the sun had come up With a bowl of cereal, a glass of juice, and a remote. Great battles were fought and monsters were defeated While Skillet drowned out the background music. Evil was vanquished and princesses were saved All before the peanut butter and je...

    Finally, the long-awaited and greatly dreaded day had come. It was Friday – the day that the fourth grade was going on a field trip to the Science Center. The trip was all the students had been able to think about for the entire week. Bobby, like the rest of them, was looking forwards to the trip...

    The house was perfect. It was triangular shaped and had a shady appearance. Shrubs covered the untended lawn. By the door, two gargoyles stood at attention. A gigantic spider web blocked the entrance. Yes, the house was definitely a perfect cover-up. Vinceton Monroy bought a house on the other si...

    You sit next to me in the classroom, But we don’t talk anymore. I remember last year When we were always together. I remember how we were so close And wonder how something That seemed so strong Could just disappear in an instant. I remember the words we threw. You said it was just a pran...

    I see you standing by the food stand And make my way over, Hoping for a special moment As I remember that night When the stars were out And the music played And we danced close together With our arms around each other Even though we’d only met that day. I remember how excited I was So ex...

    My limbs are dead And I've lost my head, So this is how it ends. There's nothing to lose So I tie the noose, Cause this is how it ends. I stand up high, Might touch the sky, But this is how it ends. I'm not ill, But I take the pills, Cause this is how it ends. I sharpen th...

    In the silence and cover that the night provided me, I slipped undetected through the town. The moon was full, giving me just enough light to see by. At first, I had worried that I’d be seen because of the moonlight, but now I was glad for it. It allowed me to make swift progress without worrying ...

    The moon, as silver as the sun is gold, Peeks out behind her smoky black veil. Clouds vanish and her light becomes more bold. White of marble milk shows her beauty pale, Bathed in the gentle blue light of raindrops, Drifting downwards to set the world aglow. With quiet light resting on the tre...

    Give me some critics To downplay my poetic work. Let them tell me it's not good enough. Let them snicker and point and smirk. Give me some critics To mock it all for a while. Let them belittle it and trample it, But it will only make me smile. Give me some critics They will mock while ...

    You always used to smile when you saw me here. I knew that I was falling, But I knew it was no use calling For help. Because you belonged to another, And I couldn’t betray a friend like that, Even though I wanted you so much that My heart was hurting. But I was always there for you. Yeah,...

    I’m staring up from where I’m lying on the bed. White paint’s chipping above my head. Just like shattered dreams long ago, My heart was cracked while I didn’t know. Before I saw what was going on, The cracks were too big and my dreams were gone! Cracks in the ceiling (3x) Cracks run...

    Roses are red, And violets are blue. Movies make me smile, And so do you. You make me laugh, And it's a struggle not to let it show. The reason why is a mystery; I just don't want you to know. Another mystery, Is why I'm so nervous when you're around. Maybe I'm afr...

    Just recently, I've woken up to realize a change within my group of friends, and after thinking about it for a while, I came to a realization. I think I've probably become kind of a drag - a dead weight. It's true I'm sure. My friends don't want to hear about my problems - ...

    The sun went down and the shadow of the night came; Dark and dark, same and same. Then a pale blue ray shone down to earth, Till upon a beech tree it came to berth. Through the dusky emerald leaves it poured on down, Till it alit upon the fabric of a silver gown. Softer than the breeze and gen...

    Live a day, die a day. Laugh the sun away, Then flood the sea with tears. On and off for ten years, Then die always for three, And there's nothing left to be. Hate yourself until your hate is gone. Bore yourself until you cease to yawn. Burn your rage until your anger is burned out. Lo...

    I don't dive inside myself for fear of what I'll find. I know what's trapped down there, so I stay close to shore. Lurking somewhere, in the darkest corners of my mind, Is the shadow of a locked door. Memories of truths I should have never found. Memories I locked away so they wo...

    Tiny white stars drift through the air, Coming from the sky with the wishes glowing there. Snowflakes turn the world to diamond-covered white. Hope dances around this beautiful sight. Miracles happen to those who continue to believe, So make your wish on Christmas Eve....

    Black void of silence, Black void of peace, Last time I left too soon, and have been searching since For somewhere else to rest. But my search has been in vain. There's no where else like this That soothes the pain And hides the truth. And yet once again, Sleep calls to me With peac...

    Here I am, all alone - trapped in this place, Stuck in one timy box or another, Passing from cage to cage through some thin chase, Sure my will and hope are soon to smother. I run to the green box without a lid. There I behold a mighty sight to see. From branch to air the hawk gracefully slid....

    Drip. Drop. The clouds break. Plip. Plop. The rain slides through. Plish. Plosh. Droplets plummet down. Slish. Slosh. Two weary feet trudge on. Dripple. Dropple. The clouds dump their loads. Ripple. Ropple. Puddles form. Slick. Slack. Pathways turn to mud. Slip. “Oh, my back!” Soa...

    Lies! Lies! Lies! All of it, lies! That's what I said that day, But now, looking back I know That the only lies there Were the ones told by me As a cover story. But now, They are the lies That even I believed and have long since been written over the truth, which is now lost forever...

    "Go away." I said to him that night. "Leave me be and take with you the confusion in my heart." He looked at me sadly, saying, "But I promised that we'd never be apart." "Go away." I repeated. "I don't want you around." So he left and ...

    The Park is empty. The sky is dark. A chilling breeze Blows the swing, Making it squeak. Everyone else had parents Come and take them home. But I sit here, On top of the half-shere, Alone. The school is locked up, The teachers have all gone, I've been here for hours, Alone, again. ...
