    You thought you could end us AND have me. Your shocked face as you drove away Told the whole story. You didn’t know. But veins hold affections And now they’ve all been slashed. She is all over the floor. And she can’t love you anymore. But you didn’t know. I know you didn...

    For me growing up with three brothers was in a word, challenging. For the first 12 years of my life I was so consumed by wanting to be “one of the boys” that I never got into make up or nail polish. I just wanted to fit in which was, at times, impossible. It was the end of summer and we wer...

    In a graveyard in New Hampshire there is a tombstone shaped like a teddy bear. I’ll never forget the first time I saw it. The grey marble was polished and clean, weeds around it plucked and trimmed. I found out later that Brianna's mother cleaned it with Windex every time they went to visit h...

    I was 5 years old when my father started reading me C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. I will always remember that series fondly as a huge part of my childhood and my first real encounter with literature. It was from those moments that my love for words and their meaning was sprouted. In fact m...

    I'm just so tired. the kind of tired that keeps you from lifting your feet. that makes you wish things you'd never tell a shooting star. that wants you to give up. the kind of tired that killed Sampson (and Delilah). the kind of tired that ties you to your bedpost, that tu...

    cold now is the coffee left in the living room bought by you to sit and sit and sit until it's doom. I had to pour that coffee down the kitchen drain and after it was gone, like you, the skies began to rain. with tap turned on, the water fell cold and clean and clear but it wouldn...

    The sun came out to see me the other day. Clear blue sky covering my gloomy grey Silence is a mysterious sound. Suppresses me as we both go down But I’m here with you. So this much is true We will make it through Boy I love you. I lost you to a busy street. Wishing back to when we ...

    Summer nights, starry sky. Moon decided to say goodbye. Smell the sea in my hair. Ocean breeze chills the air. Though I’m cold I’ll be alright. Your tender voice warms my night Sing to me a lullaby underneath our star lit sky Boy I love you always. Oh I love you always. Sing to me...

    You fell in a hole and cried out for help And I lifted you up, said “Honey, never go back” I stumbled upon the same simple stones and I shouted But you weren’t around. You weren’t around You were with him Again. And I know you mean well when you’re thinking but I don’t feel it....

    They all lined up And one by one Gave me their heart. And when I crumpled from the weight They shattered apart. I picked up every single piece, Though each one cut my soul. And try as I might I could not make them whole. I thought that when I gave them back I’d wake up and be free. ...

    Once a week you fold yourself into a paper crane. When it is complete It leaps from unsteady hands And settle in my soft, white dress. I hold that crane until morning. Warm, afternoons I run and it flies beside me. Cold days spent at fireside. We smile, we laugh, we love And for a whil...

    I’ve made so many friends this year in high school. It’s interesting to be in a school so big. On a regular basis I’ll see people I’ve never seen before in my life. It can be annoying sometime because I’m the kind of person who wants to know everyone’s name at least. But then again, ther...

    The ending to the classic Jon Steinbeck novel, Of Mice and Men, can be argued as both reinforcement to an important value and ruin to a perfectly good story. The book finishes with Lennie Small, a large, lovable, and slightly mental challenged character, getting shot in the head by his only friend i...
