    I sleep a lot now. Closing my eyes in defeat hoping and pleading that when I wake my mind will be cleared of the endless thoughts and rambling words and useless regrets only to realize that they never go away. I cry a lot now. helplessly letting it drip down my cheeks emotionless, just ...

    “There isn’t a reason for my confusion. I’m simply confused. Isn’t it enough to be confused, and that’s that? Everyone always wants a reason, an answer, a why? I just don’t see the point in beginning to explain a matter that just can’t be. Why can’t there be some closure in confusion...

    These was a time in my life where it stopped being ‘my life’. I don’t know when, exactly. I can’t give you a date or a time period or even an estimate. But I can tell you when the realization finally came that I had become swallowed whole by my father’s addiction. I admired my dad. He ...

    We were nine and we were best friends. Ready to conquer the world, so long as the other stood by our side. Even the most boring situations could be made into an adventure.

    “If you enter my house as a guest, my family is ridiculously welcoming.” I begin. If the quivering tones of my voice do not indicate my nerves, my shaking hands surely do. “You may imagine us as a family where you trot up the stairs, fling open the front door, and call out, ‘I’m home!’...

    I sat, rigid, on the slab of concrete that functioned as my bed. Swatting mosquitos from my face, I squinted to see who approached me through the darkness. "h-hello?" As soon as the sound escaped from my mouth, I knew I should have shut up and stayed still.  My voice still sounded strang...

    I hear two pairs of footsteps walking quietly to my front door. The handle turns, the door swings open, then shut, and I hear two pairs of feet walking quietly down the steps. Now it is my turn to tiptoe quietly. I enter the kitchen of my "sober" father. one breath of air laden with cig...

    As i climbed up the narrow steps to board the plane, i risked a glance over my shoulder to see the world one last time. Trudging through the crowded aisle i could feel eyes staring at me, multiplying as i plowed forward. I ignored them, used to the dirty looks, questioning expressions, and quieted c...

    SALEM: I glanced up at the full moon, staring back at me in all its glory. I felt the cool, dewy, grass pressing against my bare legs. I took a deep breath, and the smell of flowers filled my nostrils. You know, the flowers that look like trumpets? I always believed that fairies were whispering int...

    "It looks like a wedding ring," I explained to the surly looking man behind the counter. "It has engravings on the inside... It says 'Tienes Mi Corazon,'" I pleaded with the man, desperate to find my ring, but he made no intent to move. I shot him a dirty look, and proc...

    Holding back the lump in my throat. I hear silverware clanging against cast iron pots. We clean in silence.  An unspoken amount of feeling in the air.  Thick air. Smoggy air. Air crowded with thoughts of death. Thoughts of depression. Thoughts of the future. Future. Do we have a future? ...
