    The infectious street light shone through a jagged blinded window to paint an abstract piece on the earthen hardwood floor. A counterfeit alarm clock continued its ticking; on a shelf in the corner of the largely vacant room it was a reminder that the night would still go on even if hearts were st...

    The spots on the jaguar's coat rippled smoothly with genetic perfection. Her enormous paws left impressions in the dirt as she moved, noiseless like a skilled intruder. She did not notice me, behind bars, grabbing chunks of cold meat for her breakfast.   The palm trees didn't yet hold the silho...

         Rebel light sneaking in from outside the curtained window cut through the dust-laden air to shoot a beam through the room, illuminating a day-old glass of water. That is all he saw, wrapped in cottons and wools of noninvasive colors, sweat condensing beneath him, neck stiff, strained. The ...

    Bots. Scalpers. It seems like more people are buying event tickets to sell them than to actually go to the events. They’re both online and patrolling the streets nowadays, lurking around venues hoping to make a few bucks by selling tickets for often many times the face value. I have see...

    The creeping fog blooms - rich pink - a distraction. It takes over the space in my head that was, before, quiet. One further step in this human body causes me to shake because I don’t know if it will grow or if I can shake it off like I have times before. It sends an electric warning throu...

    A broken wristwatch that still tells the time sits in my closet and every day it beeps 24 times, but not on the hour, just whenever it wants to get my attention. "Hello, I’m here. I’m stuck in your closet and I can see you. I know you replaced me.” And I sleep through its we...

    I found God in a concert pit, in continuing a message and becoming nothing but sound. I found God in my blue and orange hair, standing out in the cold San Francisco spring. I found God in a ballroom 4 hours away, on a school night. I found God in reaching for a hand I never touched....

    Now I’ve nothing left but lingering panic A valentine from a long-lost ghost came in the mail the other day. And now I have more music but less time. Flashing sights and dreams that should’ve happened between the forlorn “Dammit” at 6 AM and the exhausted moan at 7:15. ...

    Maybe the only thing keeping me here is the feeling in my hair of sweet-smelling sky-sunrise hairspray. Or quite possibility it’s the dancing, and the screaming, and being told amongst people I’d consider friends to be 100% yourself....

    You’re clawing at your skin while the demons eat your happiness. Now, the one with no voice, fearing in misery of the time soon to be when you must break the violence that is your silence. And in the heat now you say, “You never helped me.” Please forgive yourself for being so lonely...

    I’m sitting in the corner of my new world and something here is troubling me as 2 of the 7 billion people on earth talk about the future, though right now I can’t really picture any. And out of the corner of my eye something says that all emotions are beautiful and for the first time, ...

    Snow falls in the heat of a winter night, flutters around my face, tries to get a taste of my lips. In a wall of dark cacophony, one by one, eight-thousand stars ignite. Waving, bright white. Now there’s snow on the ground and I burst into flames. In numbers, we all fall in lov...

    Last year I started to close my bedroom door when I slept because of the soft fuzz of the radio and my Granny sleeping in the other room. And before that I moved my bed so that I could see my closet more and my calendar less. I used to print lots of photos. Now just a few lay piled in...

    The stone hollow echoed with dozens of small breaths and the clunky shuffling of chairs and tables. The lighting pulsated, from glowing orbs, the color of mandarins, positioned near walls throughout the room. Every child in the room was quiet in fear of disobeying and in pure content that today was ...

    Intro – If you saw Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun walking down the sidewalk, you probably wouldn't think much of them as musicians. After all, many of the world's greatest artists go unrecognized everywhere except when their creations are exposed to the world. Joseph and Dun, known together...

    In a world where the music industry is always striving to find the next hit artist, one that will top the charts countless times, society often forgets artists out of the bright light that is popular music. These artists often work harder, if not as hard, as the artists with their faces all over pos...

    In 2012, the average American ate over 150 pounds of meat. However, many people don’t know the drawbacks to the meat business. Most, if not all factory farms practice inhumane and cruel methods of raising and slaughtering their animals. Also, diets that do not include meat tend to be healthier and...

    As Candie walked up the steps, her heart was full of hope, but as she stared into her parents' eyes,the hope trickled away. Seemingly abhorred by the rusty tail that dangled beside her, the love and adoration in their eyes was quickly replaced with fear and loathing. Her head went fuzzy as it r...

    The only thing I remember in those times is the sound of the subway. It's terrifying, unnatural to my lupine ears, and I'm scared of it. The whole ground shakes, and trust me, if anyone were ever so brave to come near me when I was shifted, I would like like a toy poodle being chased by a ...

    Thick smoke creeps above my throat colorful, an orange disguise. It blurs the field in which we stand, it it fire in our eyes. Panicked, running for the bushes, I trip, I fly, I fall. The long-dead grass, it scrapes my cheek the noise encases us all. I struggle to my feet weakly, a chic...

    Sudden noise shatters the looming silence of what was previously night. It’s still dark, deep blue, glowing sky light makes shapes of objects around me. Sounds are fuzzy, old glaucous clock radio sound funneling forcefully through my sleep-deafened ears. The clock’s face, a green-yellow bli...

    A sea of silent echoes, the dark and gnarled trees, the land's relaxed breathing is the only sound to me I don't belong to the desert, or the ocean's frothy coast. I live within the woodlands, they are what call to me the most I love the vibrant, luscious flowers, the riv...

    I am from leisurely evenings Eating Mac N Cheese in the lazy autumn air I am from trapping lizards In the barely-summery mornings Where they'd sun themselves With scaly cobalt bellies I am from waking up to the cries of Pudgy baby birds covered in smoky down I am from the twisted oak tr...

    Here I sit in confusion, cutting up my Christmas list, so tired, and wishing I could do one thing right. I'm folding the paper, trying so hard, but in my lap are a thousand failed paper stars....
