    I am nothing to you, But a bare canvas of flesh and bones. On which you paint upon, With a precarious hand. I am an object to you, Nothing but hardened glass, Dug out of the bottom, Of an old, rusted bin. I am a rag doll, Held together by flimsy stiches, In which you snap with a single gla...

    I watch as you unfold me; I am small. Leaving me open and bare, On display for the world. I feel what you’ve done to me, In the space between my thighs, And the hollow of my stomach, And the deadness in my eyes. Though I taste nothing but air, Dull and brittle on my tongue, As I struggle...

    Children, parents, and even teachers are aware of how much bullying occurs in an average school day, though the majority of us do nothing to stop it. Bullying affects one in three U.S students in 6th through 10th grades (Wasley, 2005). A “zero tolerance policy for bullying” could be the little ...

    Juliana The intercom speaker screeches loudly, the sharp noise piercing my ears. We hear Mr. Raymundo's muffled voice from the other end of the receiver. “Who are you –?” He's silenced by a deafening noise that a human could not possibly produce. A loud shrill torturing bu...

    The sympathy kills me even more than the cancer, The glances, the pointing, the whispers. Don’t pretend to know how I feel – You will never understand. Unless you’re living inside of me, You will never know what it feels like. What it feels like to have a monster inside of you, Eating a...

    Am I the type of girl to get angry over little things? Yes. Am I the type of girl to stand up for what I believe in? Definitely. Am I the type of person, who if you insult in any way, will do everything and anything it takes to make sure you get what you deserve so you will never ever, e...

    “So,” Dean says, his voice having an element of nervousness I've never heard in him before, “I was – uh – well I got – um – I got fired. . .” What? Hearing Dean say this startles me to death. If he doesn't have his job anymore, if he isn't getting us the extra mone...

    His lips move back and forth, as pink and luscious as I recall, as He pleads his case, determined to talk his way out of trouble, as I remember he always does. This time, though, He cannot win –if I let him defeat me, again, it really will all end. I catch His eye over the pedestal he stands be...

    “And, our second ranking student of the year . . .” Mrs. Anderson announced in her entirely too perky voice, “Claire Barnett!” I mentally rolled my eyes at the fake, cheerfulness of Mrs. Anderson, the insincere plastic smile plastered to her face. I could see through her mask, could see t...

    “So class,” says the long-haired, middle-aged man who looks like a mix a between a hippy and a DJ with his shudder shades, the huge peace necklace looped around his neck, his purple hat flipped backwards, and the mop on his head that is supposedly supposed to be hair – it’s even worse than m...

    The thing I hated about glitter is that it went wherever it pleased, defying any rules you set out for it – it was untamable, unpredictable. Sure, after sprinkling some onto something to give it some life, the whole creation looked way more beautiful than it had before, but what was the point of s...

    The car bumped along the dusty, rock-covered, pot hole infested driveway that I instantly remembered as my own. With the car windows open, I swore I could still smell the aroma of the ever burning Cinnamon Apple candle that my father insisted we light, that always sat behind the huge glass window, g...

    The picture of you is in black and white, Though I can feel the pain you’d endured, Your face is far away, blurry, Though I can see the tears, the hurt like a sword. The date says 1945, When you were young like me, I wish you chose a different path, I wish the story played out differently. ...

    Drowned in sorrow, Soaked in grief, Crying the tears of tomorrow, Happiness so out of reach. We reach for the sky, We shoot for the stars, We try and we try, But only get so far. Crushed am I, Forever in the depths, Of something so torturous, As she gasps her last br...

    Leaping, jumping, Flying through the air, So elegantly beautiful, The wind blowing through my hair. Running free, no obstacles to oblige, Showing the true me, no reason to hide. The music flows through me, jolting me awake. The thrilling sensation, That the beautiful sound creates. To run ...

    You're an addiction, A drug, So good for me, And anything but. You love me so much, But only when you want to. And when you don't, You're a monster, A terrifying beast. You hate anything, Everything, Everyone, Me. Like a candle in the dark, Yo...

    The wisps of smoke, They linger in the air, The reminiscence of the flames, Unwanted. The me I once was, She lingers here, too, Unwanted by many, Unwanted by you. Her cries unanswered, Silence in the air, All she wants, all she needs, Is someone who cares. But t...

    I’ve been counting the minutes, Marking the days, Begging for you, Since you went away. I cry for help, But no one hears. I reach my hand out, But no one seems to care. Tick-tock, Tick-tock, The minutes slowly pass. Tick-tock, Tick-tock, How long will the endless torture l...

    Her eyes are bright, Outlined with gold, Her face full of smiles, Happy stories untold. She puts on her mask, And laughs happily, Such a simple task, Takes up so much energy. But when you look into her eyes, You can see straight through the lies, And find the truth. She’s not who she s...

    The gray shadows of darkness and despair shield her from the light, Lost in a world of horror and hopelessness, lost in a battle of courage and fright. Her cries of pain are constant, as are her attempts to flee, It seems so impossible, so out of reach, but all she wants is to be free. S...
