    My fingers long and ache  for those beautiful, ivory keys Each one calling out to me The black keys wink at me from the flickering piano light Begging Pleading   I give in to my longing hands  My feet are guiding me to the bench I'm no longer in control My eyes close, my fin...

    What is love? Is it when you see your mother peck your father's cheek? Or when you want to talk but you just stand there in awe of somebody? Love is more than a feeling. Love is the mama fox defending her pups Love is a father tucking his small daughter in at night Love is pain Well, som...

    On a cold and snowy Arctic night Icebergs slowly drift out of sight Not the tiniest bit of light sparkled on the snow. A suffocating darkness flooded the land Snow blew violently, sharp as sand Warning, "Get out quickly! As fast as you can!" The wind continued to blow. But amid...

    A teardrop thumps on the page As I move my pencil faster Tears of sadness and rage They dry to my face like plaster More tears form as I move along My heart drags like a weight I know I have to keep it strong But I believe it is too late. My day was filled with sadness With anger and dispai...

    I saw him. His soft blue-gray eyes burning a hole on the side of my face I turn He turns quickly away I watch him walk down the hall Girls drool as he passes by I tell my friend, "I think he hates me" She says, "Whatever you say." I don't understand. The bell rings...

    I never knew. All this time something was tugging me. I thought she was mean. I thought the world hated me. I thought I was bullied. No. It's the other way around. I am mean. I hated the world. I yelled, screamed. I hit, kicked, punched. I judged. No. She was the bully? Nope. I a...

    It's so empty in here alone in the school Usually you hear the shuffling of feet Not now It's a different world Doors are locked Lights are out You hear nothing But you can hear something And it's the sound of nothing A breeze flows through Causing you to shiver That's the first noise yo...
