    The humble Mustang bounced along Interstate 109 undisturbed by other vehicles. The sun had set a few hours ago, but the night was still warm enough for the driver to keep the top down. His Radiohead cassette was turned down low, but the sound punctured the still atmosphere. The right headlight cast ...

    one day no one will remember us and our bones will just be dust, and our lives will just be sad songs, and our kids will sing them all wrong, and our pictures will be dying memories, and our voices will fade away telling stories, and we will rot in the dirt while our coffins rust, ...

    I knew he cared not because of flowers or candy or diamonds, but because he listened. He was quiet, but spoke with sympathetic eyes that saw the pain inside. He did not sleep with me but he wiped my tears and loved me. I knew he cared not because he told me so through f...

    1920 is just a number, but I am not. I am creative and persuasive, positive of what I want. I don’t care if Yale or Harvard does not want me. I do not want them. They are just schools and 1920 is just four numbers condensed into nonsense. I want my big city drea...

    One summer I went to San Francisco with my family, I walked two miles south from the hotel Monday afternoon, I walked to the Golden Gate Bridge. Massive, a monumental form against the city’s skyline, Ironically doused in red paint despite the title: wondrous, Ironically, the names i...

    Today she looked at me with weary eyes and whispered: “I wish this was my last day.” I looked at her with teary eyes and knew her wish would soon come true....

    The school told me I wasn’t good enough through a single sheet of meaningless letters. The choir told me I wasn’t good enough through cold shoulders and no callbacks. The magazines told me I wasn’t good enough through glossy pages of beautiful girls. I knew I wasn’t good en...

    At the top of the world, where hearts were full, And the sun would only rise, Lived a girl and a boy with love-filled eyes, They would look upon the landscape, And dream, and laugh and love, As the sun would never cease rising up above, Until one day the world shook, And suddenly silence ...

    To live in endless summertime, To live in a child’s sweet dreams, To speak in riddles from nursery rhymes: Nothing is as it seems. A land where the sun only rises, A world filled with curious things, A globe of nonsense and surprises: Where cats talk as a flower sings. Would you ever...

    You’re falling down the same path again, you wilted dying flower, you’re killing what’s left in you, slowly dying, hour by hour, why can’t you just stay afloat? don’t blow away in the wind, I know you’ve been fighting for so long, but I promise you can win, you’re drowning ...

    When I was five, my dad made me try out for little league, but I wanted to stay home and cook with my mom, so I started to cry, tears streaming, my father shoved me, he pushed me toward the bat and said, "Boys don't cry, come on." When I was eight, my best friend was Casey, ...

    Down yonder in the woods where the wildflowers grow, and the west wind blows, there's a secret gate. The key to open it is a curious mind, a certain kind, that's quite difficult to find, easier lost than broken dreams. But one summer when the sky was true blue, a young girl passed ...

    Love is just the emotion, it's built upon a foundation: trust Kisses are just flickers and sparks, only a taste of: lust Physicality is just a flame, easy to start easier to put out: lust Lies are just fabrications, written without truth, they crush: trust You are just a faded pictu...

    We don’t miss life until death consumes us all, and takes us to the valley of the dead and gone, We don’t really ever ascend until we fall, our world goes black at the break of dawn, Can you feel the silence? Heavy as a stone, it sets around us leaving us all alone, We don’t regret t...

    Clinging to something so weak that’s called home, afraid and cautious of the peculiar unknown, As seasons change and veins fill with woe, it becomes apparent,it’s time to let go, Let go of the one’s that showed us the way, the people and places we’ll return to one day, However, n...

    Tell me a story of a true love that lasts, tell me of him, the lover of your past, Was he your prince? Did he make you believe? Believe that he would be yours and never leave? Was your lover strong? Did he sweep you off your feet? I bet he kept you safe, made your soul feel complete, ...

    Remember when your tears used to be from laughter, tell me what happened, my beautiful disaster, I can recall a time when love overruled pain, a time when you could feel, without opening a vein, Hey angel, tell me, where did it all go wrong? Your life came to an end like a tragic love...

    Last night I sat in bed and cried, I sat among full bottles of pills; razors laced with blood, Those bottles were meant to be emptied, I was going to empty myself, but last night in bed, I thought of you, I counted the reasons why, I calculated how many tablets to take, I organized each blad...

    Maybe I wasn’t enough, for you to try and hold onto. I was too transparent like the wind, and I whispered too softly, I love you. So next time I won’t fall as hard, because now I’m just a ghost. A shadow of who I used to be, you’re the one I wanted the most. Like rain clouds ...

    Sometimes I think God put us together, Just to tear us apart, to tear up our hearts. And maybe he tore us apart, so we could reassemble, Just to test us, on love over lust. We are severed only by the distance, the miles between, By bones and blood, nothing can unravel our love. So ...
