    At the beginning, it's blank. The black cursor winks at you innocently from the far left of the page, and you stare back, motionless, as you gather your thoughts, packing the day's events into midnight-colored suitcases and hiding them in the recesses of your mind, to be found and examined later. Br...

    “Justin, please shoot me. I am dying of boredom.” I said as I waited for my date to get back from the punch bowl. “Then why did you come?” my friend Justin asked in his nasal voice. He was just about three inches taller than me, which meant he was incredibly short considering I was hovering...

    Climbing up the last two rungs, you pull yourself off the ladder and onto the dusty attic floor. You breathe in the smell of warm light and old maple wood as you look around the sunbathed space, letting your eyes linger on the precarious piles of books, their crackling pages adding a homey, soothing...

    Slab City, 2005 She was running, running, faster than she had ever thought she could run before. Her feet, bare and exposed to the sweltering hot asphalt, burned and swam in her vision, though she wasn’t sure if this was because they were moving so fast or if it were simply a product of the tears...

    She secretly dies even though they both know that it's not really a secret. She acts like she moved on even though they both know that she is grasping at straws. She tells him that they can be friends even though they both know that they can't even look at each other without flaming tendri...

    You promised you'd always be there, and I promised I believed you. We were the same. We wanted three kids, but we had to name one Avery, after your baby sister. House, right on the beach, far away from the overdone idea of 'normal'. We were almost exactly a year apart, both July babie...

    I sit alone. I always have. I always will, even when I pretend to forget and move on. I won't move on. Never. All the death, all the pain, all the blood and sorrow. No, I will never move on from that. Oh, look. My sky is falling again. Yes, my carefully constructed sky, look at it shatter...

    “hey” Your simple, unexpressive greeting fills me with excitement as I eagerly flip my phone open to text back. I decide to go for a casual, non-creepy reply, something that doesn't scream “I like you!” A cool, collected response. I pause, thinking, and then come up with the perfect reply. ...

    My mother says I came out of the womb running and haven’t stopped since. This is somewhat true, to be honest. I get a rush after a race, no matter how I have done. I write poetry about the sound of my feet scuffing the asphalt (feet shouldn’t pound when you run—it means you have bad form). I g...

    Poison ivy hurts  Everything it touches.  A brush with it's  Oiled leaves and You will be infected. But if you think about it (and I have thought about it) That's an irritation  Because heals in just a week. The one who is harmed is the  Tree that it grows on. It wraps itse...

    When I see you and my heart  jumps to my throat and then  it plunges back, far back down  to my stomach where it  gives me little shots of pain And little shots of pleasure At how close you are When you walk past But how you never  Look my way When I see you my heart flutters in my...

    Orange, dancing tounges Eating through the city All that now is lost  All that was so pretty Screams tint the air The terrified tune The bloodcurdling music The piercing, hopeless croon. A cloud has muted The city of smoke The people are dying When you run, you choke Orange, dancing tou...

    There are so many ways That people name them The windows to the soul The way to see if you  are telling the truth (or not) But I look at mine And all I see Is blue. And I wonder How some people can say That you fall in love through the eyes? Because they show you the heart? Is my heart...

    Don't leave because you have to Because that means you're giving in You are too strong for that  Even if staying is a sin Don't stop because you have to Because that means you can't have me And I, I love you way to much Can't your tear-blinded eyes see? Don'...
