    It was prom night, and the girls’ jewels shone like stars. Casey took Jeff’s arm, looked in his eyes, and begged for a dance. As he always did, he gave in to her.

    I’ve heard it said before That we are fish in the sea, Following along with the tide Using the ocean as a free ride. But I disagree. I think we are the sea itself Pushing and pulling everyone around us Until one person wins. Every day I ask myself, “Is this how it should be, Should I b...

    The room was still. Five girls occupied it, but only one disturbed the temperate air. Graceful leaps and elegant releves swished and stayed her flowing chiffon wrap. Perfectly, she windmilled out of a back bend into the chorus of a famous ballad. These spellbound teenagers were held in the delicate ...

    Gone before he really existed. Wind flashes past me. Pictures elude me over and over again. I hear voices in my memories, voices telling me that I am not the eldest child. That I never will be. Only children are lucky, friends say, not to have to deal with argumentative siblings or sharing bed...

    Let us go hand in hand Down that empty road Knowing that no man can separate us Take us from our homes We are secure in this In that which we have made For though the fires rage And the people age We last forever No angel from heaven Or demon from hell Is strong enough to part us For we ...

    Don’t look at me like that. Don’t act like you didn’t just do what you did. Don't make this my fault. It happened. You know it did. Sure, I’ve done things. There’s no way I’m perfect. But you...but this... I always told you I would forgive and forget I forgave you the secon...

    great, golden wings erupt from the scaly creature’s back consuming the night as the potential torch takes off a beady golden eye peers down at the earth below judging. this is no fickle beast, but a creature of justice: and he has found his prey tonight. yes, he has found his prey in the p...

    Why can't I remember? I only catch glimpses of you, Deep in my mind's eye A smile as you throw the ball Reaching down to pet the dog Grabbing the hulahoop from my hands Laughing Standing amongst your Jeff Gordon gear, your fascination Eating watermelon Wearing a golden crown Stic...

    Sometimes, it gets hard The weight of the world becomes too much for my shoulders And in times like those, who do I have? I’d like, more than I can express, to be able to say you. But I don’t want to scare you. Or to say that I’ll get past this— Life is short! Time flies! Nothing lasts...

    I have a dream Not a big dream, like Martin Luther King But a small dream One simple thing. I’ve always wanted to fly, you see To rule the big blue sky Bu that is not my dream; Though I do want to fly. I love to pain I wish I was any good But that is not my dream No even the same neighb...

    Time flies. Not just when you’re having fun, Or you want to stay somewhere forever, But always. Time *always* flies. And, usually, it takes everyone along for the ride. So just grab time, Hold onto its coattails, And ride it out. Because there’s nothing, absolutely nothing, That time c...

    This look in my eyes, Whatever you think you see Is not experience, But maturity. For I have accompanied Those I hold dear Down to the gates of Hell Despite my own fear. And with my loves I have lifted my hand And knocked on those large gates Upon which darkness fanned. You can mak...

    CHORUS Down on the corner of 5th and 9th Every child will spend a night There the ghosts and ghouls will roam There these spirits call a home They do not moan or rattle chains No, they point fingers and give the blame Some might say they’re quite a fright For any child’s night Choru...

    Sometimes, in a life, one finds a shooting star They’re there for just a short time, Then only seen from afar A bright light, a highlight. It’s a bit like the tile game, Where you begin together at the start And shuffle away without aim Only the very dedicated ever find their way back ...

    Her mother stopped the car on the side of the road. Her face was mottled purple, but the color was slowly evaporating into the A/C’s strong power. “Why can’t you just be normal?” she demanded of the girl. The girl would have put her hands on her hips if she’d have more room; instead she...

    How could you That was my darkest day And you take it And you throw it away? I know what you went through I know that it was bad But does that take the validity Of the trauma that I had? What makes you so exclusive Gives just you the right To take all your heartache And go and mark th...
