    was the year I thought I would get most out of life fall in love in the fall, the colors of the season making everything beautiful in my eyes winter snowflakes and lights strung up around the city making plans to move to the big city, where more lights – permanent – would await my arrival ma...

    Why do we just sit and stare at the revolving world? I want to be a part of it, I want the colors to blind me I want truth to be my motto as I travel around on a sailboat I want airports to be my second home and I want a little apartment - Saturday mornings when the sunlight peering through...

    I stay inside tonight, although there’s a nice breeze on the porch. I stay inside and think to myself and Admit, all I feel like doing is watching the window and Hearing the rain tap the roof outside my room with every drop but it isn’t raining outside, so I don’t. I stay inside and thi...

    Sometimes I just want to be lovely Like a ladybug in spring Like the song a morning dove sings to me I just want to be Lovely Sometimes I just want to feel kind Like warm sun rays to a gentle green grass Like a fresh breeze that streams through a patch of tulips Like a kindergartener, rib...

    It seems I’ve truly learned to appreciate the love of reading. I hardly do anything else these days I sit in the TV room with the TV off the blinds not open, but the sun comes through anyways and finds me with a book in my hands. I’ve found myself not wanting to do anything else, but I h...

    fragile like the thick words written on a box like the porcelain skin of a glass doll fragile is a word that can be described by a light bulb or the screen of a phone when faced with the clumsiness of its owner fragile is a moment when a letter in a bottle floats toward a dock a moment when a ...

    So I walk on the crosswalk, Matching my feet with the white lines One step at a time, until I reach the sidewalk And I think to myself about myself All the things I don’t like about myself And I wonder if I’m the only one Am I just a lone white stripe in the middle of the road? Because I ...

    I’d like to snatch a blanket from my room Pack a bag, head to the moon with you find a crater and call it ours. Walk around the very next day, Find the flag they placed way back then When we were stuck in time. But now we’re free and gravity can’t hold us down. Now we’re floating, ...

    Let the music rumble in my head Like drums at a football game See wind dancing with the leaves and make my own path on the sidewalk. Hands thankful for warmth of pockets, my hair flows with the breeze. And I don’t need a sound system, a boom box to play under some stranger’s window sill, ...

    Peace comes in unexpected ways. The other day when I was in the market buying fruits and vegetables for dinner that night, I was in a rush to get home at a certain time. I didn’t want to spend all of my Sunday at the market. But then peace hit me like a train. I just stopped where I was, my ful...

    Twist and turn underneath the moon, different shades of sand cover me and the wind brushes the water to my feet sandals lay off to the side This is a night when I feel the stars smiling down and the instant of peace I usually feel has lasted for hours I dig my hands in the dune And wait ...

    I know I write about nature a lot, but it’s the only way I know how to speak. Love is nature. Love is the morning when you wake up to a gloomy, rainy day. It’s the day when all you want to do is climb into a blanket on the couch and watch your favorite romance movies. Love is catching...

    Last Tuesday, we set a record at lunch: how many girls can sit at a round table. Eleven was our number. Me, Miranda, Jenna, Ellie, Molly, Laurel, Anne, Meg, Emma, Nicole, and Sam. I’m pretty sure it’s never been done before because it’s practically impossible. We were all squeezed in as close ...

    The room of my heart is just what you would expect. A room. It’s a well-furnished room. There’s a bed. Bookshelf. Dresser. Closet. Night table. Desk. The funny thing about the desk is there’s a huge schedule on it that takes up most of the surface. It’s been penciled on, scribbled...

    It’s a spring day and no one seems to know how to act because it’s still the middle of December. It’s a spring day the wind is blowing in our faces as we continue on with our unnecessary scarves and coats. The clouds, so gray they cover over us and make shadows under our eyes, but ...

    Walk down the hallways just like I do every other day. Right side, just like a road. I catch eyes avoiding mine, faces avoid looking my direction. It isn’t me. It isn’t anyone. It’s that people here don’t want to say hello. They don’t know how. Get to my locker and I turn the lock. I’...

    The wind picks up The branches dance And all the while, I'm in a sleeping trance I look outside It's beautiful But staying inside is better than being cold I'm tired of this sad winter Church bells ring, but the peace never comes The streams of snow seem to fall on me, also; ...

    Things to do, check my lists make sure I've done all of it; Can't believe the year's almost gone Another month to say that's done. And the colored lights fill the windows of houses all up and down the street; I walk along with my hands in my pockets try not to think too much. If I do, I'll g...

    how great is this? to stand with all whom you love, worshipping you and submitting our lives; we give our control, offer it up and let you take it, consume our hearts. Room is dark, but candles are overpowered by spirits that light up through your song, praising you with hands raised ...

    Walk into an old restaurant, lined with classical barstools while wooden chairs and tables dot the tile floor. Menu on a chalkboard above the cashier Milkshakes being spun in metal mixers, and grilled cheese being served with cokes just like I pictured happening in the 1920s, except no one is ...

    How often do our fathers tell us how Not long is life, so live with no regret? Yet I say death is more a threat to thou It so arrives too swift, the quickest yet. Yes, time and life exist composed as one, With Time the final judge, a perfect squad; But Death still works alone, depends on none ...

    I sit here with my lonely hands, so cold Just finished up a book that took too long; I watch the paintings on the wall unfold, They come to life, their colors bold and strong. I see myself, the bench just to my right, my spirit in the small girl that I see. The moon illuminates the sky of nigh...

    I don’t know how or why I get in these moods. The littlest things set me off. But I know that all I want to do now is sit and listen to Harry Nilsson and be quiet. Shut my brain off just for a while and try not to think of painful things. Think of the winter breeze or Chicago or the beauty of ...

    I am sorry January, the month with no holiday It's a shame you can't count New Year's Day. All the aftermath of December you face It must be so hard No wonder I think the color blue When I think of you There's nothing going on to keep up with. All the people of the city H...

    Kisses like fishes showing their affection in their water-filled little cave home. I don't know how to describe it Except that I like it This feels like my home. And it's like opening the mailbox tonight and finding one tiny letter You didn't see earlier. It's like he...
