    Some books stay with us forever. It’s because they’re more than just stories. They’re the stories that made us who we are. The characters shaped us, their decisions influenced ours, we fell in and out of love with them, we felt their pain and laughed for their joy. We went on the adventures. W...

    I’m a majestic creature Haven’t you seen? I’m gorgeous, I’m brilliant I’m a little bit keen. Alright, I’ll admit it Maybe I’m boasting But no, let’s be honest, I’m something worth toasting. I’m not here for the show I’m the main event You want pictures? Get in line ...

    They say beauty is only skin deep. But what about beast? Does a wild animal live in their heart of hearts, the claws curled and muzzle stained a forever red? Does the breath catch in their chest, eyes darting from side to side like a leopard caged? Or is it something more, deeper, something vicious ...

    Some time ago my heart skipped. Not just one beat, but three or four. I stood without a beating heart for a good while when I stared at the sky. It was just like the others had told me, when I looked and tried and peered around. “How do you describe color?” they’d ask. “Try.” I’d press...

    Do you remember when our kingdom stretched for miles When our palace held our dreams and we drank them in From the palms of sweet hands Do you remember when the night was always lit And in the sky if we reached If we really stretched We found the stars We’d take them down and lay them On...

    Bang, bang, bang! She’s at our door The c***’s barely crowed but the hen’s already huffy Bang, bang, bang! Her painted on eyes squint through the letter door “I know your snow is in my yard!” She screams, her cry deemed necessary by her quiver and shake, A hedgehog stepped on. ...

    Different Strange in this day She opted out of the Hollywood lashes, And movie star glass, Drop dead curls and tear away blouses She’s something that’s been lost today Hair cropped Sleeves torn A head full of witty ideas A constant stream of innovation Small pixie lips Bright America...

    They tell me it was cold. The wind whipped at your hair and tore the words from your lips as you spoke them, the icy rain falling in cascades down your neck. They grey dawn gave little light through the downpour and the sparse souls that could be seen along the streets hurried from cover to cover, a...

    It was old, the room in the house of drawn curtains, where the ghosts of whispers still haunted the deadened halls. The first left from the tattered staircase led to a sagging frame where a door must have once hung, where now stands only black emptiness. A single chord of light dangles on the floor,...

    "What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet." – William Shakespeare And sweet it is as sweet could be, For under lovely petals pink, You discover hearts of ink. For thorns protrude from long green stems Clawing and grabbing at your hem...

    The color of silence, The color of shadow, The color of dusk. It whispers its secrets to those to can hear, A soft silken voice, a breath in your ear. Sweet scarlet bells that twinkle and chime Dancing in starlight and skimming a rhyme. Daylight’s end and night’s beginning, When flowers ...

    Goodnight She said through gritted teeth, the wounds of the day still fresh. Goodnight She said, the lie beneath, though pain and grief she nursed. The tears that fell seemed strangely red And the words she spoke were terse. I’m sorry! She cried in Sorrow’s arms. I love you! She ...

    These hands Do not belong to me Attached to them lie my wrists But the hands I do not command My eyes see him The boy My boy And my back straightens, stiffens His eyes, wary, brown Find mine Shocking, blue The fingers of the hand curl and straighten, curl and straighten, The hand whose ...

    Time is a funny thing. Sometimes, an hour can take a year, just as a year can turn to an hour. Where are the words to describe Time? In answer there are none. And what for Death? How are we to describe a sensation only the bloodless know about? Time and Death, two opposites of the universe, and yet ...

    This life seems so transparent, like pretty pictures painted on smoke. I need to write, I have to write, but I can’t write, can’t think, the words won’t come, I’m left alone with my icy tears, no words, no magic to inspire, no brushes with which to paint my world, my paints are dry, and what...

    94 94, that’s my number, it’s who I am, what I am, I am 94 pounds. 5 foot 6, 6 feet 7, too big, they whisper. That girl is too big. I hear the voices, I hear the words, too big, too fat, she’s tall, she’s ugly. Shocked I turn, turn to confront, turn to attack. Too big, too fat, she’s tall...
