    Give me warmth with an electric stove I’ll bubble but I’ll never burn, you’ll drain the flavor out then and the red-hot spiral will give a long, cold stare, the way it wasn’t meant to be, because they told me Sometimes you need to face the fire...

    When rain turns to shower And dreams fly no more, Or white comes Hand-in-hand with cold, Only the wind will open my door. When the air holds peace And rays of gold roam, While sea and sky Collide in embrace, Only the wind will take me home. My longing heart Like a puppet’s will be W...

    Remember the mosaic that the flat stones created with their splendid colors and those jagged edges of what used to be but now is broken And remember that with a little glue, a little strength any cold stones can be used to make a masterpiece...

    Let my feelings for you be measured by the length of computer wire And present in the hum that goes on forever like the beating of my heart The clacking of keys that is heard on both ends makes us one, makes us whole But it is really the path of the arrow on my brightly glowin...

    I must say that I strongly believe that Teen Ink did a particularly excellent job on choosing a great variety of poetry in honor of National Poetry Month. Teen Ink is the type of magazine I resort to when I am on the lookout for inspiration, humor, and bold work that is simply defying, and April...

    As words creep past, crawl slowly on, march in a row, the rhythm of the ticking clock is drowned out by the music of the pages turning one by one, the soft sound as the finger traces tales line by line, and the rhythm of the reader's heart as it beats on like a drum...

    Throw me a line and let it sink below the surface before you pull it back up so you can catch me as a whole and won't leave any part submerged. Just wait patiently and then look down deep......

    Snow plow, have a patient heart- don't turn onto this blissful street and shove mercilessly through yesterday's forts and fallen angels until we have had our chance and the miracles' memories begin to darken and melt. Dripping icicles will tell you our tales, sled tracks wi...

    Take me out to the rolling sea, Where light breeze will entangle me, And dreams of salty-water blues, Will melt me in their swirling hues. Let creeping waves dart to and fro, As seagulls swoop above land low, And I may bathe in rays of Sun, While sea and sky will meet as one....

    Need nothing more than the joyous peal of ringing laughter on summer afternoons protected by palm tree shade and the breeze that carries it all like a messenger of magic and bathes the body of burdens...

    It was with the help of Claire and her article "You Are a Writer If..." that I was able to reach a certain conclusion- I am, indeed, a writer from all perspectives. I must say that I was very pleased upon reading this piece in the March issue; I always enjoy a wonderfully witty piece that...

    "School Start Times: A Wake-Up Call" by Kristen Luise stood out to me in the February issue as a well-developed and rather honest piece that portrayed the consequences of students' sleep deprivation and put the blame on early school hours. I must commend Kristen on her brilliantly-org...

    Let the only memories of winter lay buried with the Swiss Miss and the times when you sat swirling sweetness with a spoon with hopes of the bitterness dissolving, and try to pretend that it caused all ice to melt...

    I think I need a big eraser, one that will turn my mistakes into little, tiny shavings that I can blow away and hope that no one else will pick them up. Can someone lend me a breath of air?...

    There is one place where I can float upon a cloud of wishes like dandelion seeds that a hopeful breath has blown. There is one place where I can plant my roots with these seeds of dreams and grow tall and strong in the soil of my room where none will tread on me....

    "Numbers: My Only Proof" by Alana W is a touching piece that shows how the devastating effects of the Holocaust changed her life, despite the fact that she did not experience its hardships firsthand. Alana speaks of the scars forever left on her from learning about others' struggles, ...

    Don’t think you’re lost when love is near, as you hear the helicopter whir and shine brightest among the stars. Shh, you’re only gone when the moon takes you in...

    If words are smooth as pebbles, carved off as round as stones, then why not grow a garden within them, and lay a path so others can turn them over when you’re done?...

    Sir Knight, may you take off your sheath? I wish to know what hides beneath. Reveal your reason, state your aim, Your motives all please do proclaim. Heed! Glory's gilded mask you wear! Of truth and hardships be aware! There's much that fortune won't fulfill, Nor power, nor gre...

    They cannot seem to see it all, To view me as a whole, Well past my skin they cannot look, They are all blind to my soul. They only pay attention to, The swaying of my tree, But how firm my roots are planted, They cannot seem to see. When I’m an oyster, hidden and plain, With sand that’...

    In the November issue, Danielle Mackson makes an excellent point about clothing that demeans young women in “A T-Shirt Travesty.” In this brief piece that is well-argued and excellently phrased, she explains what is on the minds of many teens. Danielle is bothered by shirts that bear the message...

    Nature caught me with a net, between the two who bravely stood, whose duty was to lift, to raise, those brothers two, connected by the rope, the hooks, the sweat, the love, and hope combined. I lay, connected to the earth in a chain of wonder, of magic, with the wind whisperi...
