    I missed the feel of the keyboard I missed being writing-bound As I pressed the letters forming words that make no sound I missed the click of the keys like some miss the sound of the rain I missed the trill of the click as if it is whispering my name I missed the feel of the plastic an...

    L-O-N-G-I-N-G longing. Definition: A yearning desire. Example? I could give you several. I long for God, first and foremost, and am sometimes disliked because of it, but I know that it’s okay, because it’s what his Son had to go through. I long for a day to be locked up ...

    One month - Mother She blinked a couple of times to clear her eyes. Perhaps she was seeing it incorrectly. It could not be- she had only tried it once. That type of thing wasn’t supposed to happen. You couldn’t possibly have this type of thing happen to you because of one night- right? She...

    Twice now I have looked at you twice three times four times fifth time you look too but turn as if none of it mattered. It seemed yesterday you were who you’ve always been and today you’ve decided to forget that and put on your stage makeup and perform an act for the w...

    People think I’m a know-it-all. This was brought to my attention by friend a while ago, and I can’t stop thinking of it. Now, I have a spot that fits in closely with the teacher’s pets and the overachievers. Not that there is anything wrong with this people. In fact, some of my best frien...

    I’ve got a pair of headphones and a laptop full of songs and now instead of communicating with my friends I communicate with the beat of drums and switching feet and panics that take place at discos and bands that I’d never heard of before but are british and alternative ...

    When I am upset I become very still to stop the tears from flowing some look towards the ceiling but I look straight ahead and it’s not because I cannot stand to look where the roof blocks my view of the sky or because I want to refrain from people asking me if I’m o...

    I believe that outer beauty is not important, yes, I know I shouldn’t care, I know I shouldn’t care less. But when they label me as just ugly and repeatedly instruct me to see that I can’t be shown a key to unlock beauty unless I find glee in covering this God-giving thing ...

    It was a festival of light. People danced through the night like fireflies released from the jars where they had been trapped. There was freedom to it, as you grabbed my hand and we skipped down the street without stopping until we ran out of breath. I watched as a little boy ra...

    You are not exquisite not perfect but I love you for it. You are one of my best friends and you don’t even know. But. Society is undermining and I cannot stop thinking about you I am not free to tell you because. An ocean of frivolous unsupportive rules (as silly as ...

    Shakespeare didn’t enjoy literature. He would sit outside in the evenings, reclining with some brandy and, if he was in the mood, bread and jam. He would gaze at the sky, dreaming to be anything but a playwright. Sadly, being a playwright was his only means of earning a shilling. When...

    I had forgotten how the silence felt. I could not hear the sound of my breathing, nor could I hear the sound of the air conditioner or the creaking of the house. Nothing. It was nighttime, and the world was quiet. No, quiet was an understatement. The power is out, I thought to myself. That is w...

    I am pretty much one hundred percent certain that I am ready to break free. Not only this, but I am absolutely, unconditionally, fully and inconceivably positive that it is time for me to jump out of my box and see what happens outside of it. I have been prepared for at least five hundred year...

    I see that you have a difficult time wrapping the fact around your mind that I am not a formula a simple equation, easy to solve and I think you struggle with trying to believe that you cannot pull me from your sleeve whenever you are in need of me I am fully yours or not yours at all...

    I sat there for a while, looking around the room, trying to think of something. While I was wrapped up in this, I saw my friend, just a few desks away. She is beautiful, I thought, with the way she so casually continues on with her life and is unaware of her own wonder. And then I looked one desk aw...

    We become foolish as we watch ourselves mock the world for it’s blandness and we look silly as we say to ourselves “Life has nothing to offer me” because we miss the intricate pattern of birds swirling over us....

    I want to shout “I love you” but you wouldn’t understand that when I see your blue eyes I lose all feeling and when you are near I lose control of my words and don’t you know that I remember every instance in which we have held between us? That I have written it down in c...

    She leans backward on the couch and puts her feet up on the table, chewing on the end of her pen. Jealously finds it’s way into my brain as she nods at me to sit across from her. She smirks at me as I ease myself into the sleek brown chair and look down at my hands. I begin twiddling my thumbs, as...

    You can say to yourself “I wish I were taller I wish I were smarter I wish I were more” You can wish and fulfill that wish only to rethink yourself again with another doubt and another wish. You wish you were different in one way or another and you can keep wishing until your...

    You heard the words I spoke, and you chewed them up and spat them out again mocking me. I went home and looked in the mirror, and because of what you saw I saw a mistake. And I tried to clean it up, but you made me feel as if it were impossible. I’d tinker with what I said, aimin...

    I would like to thank the stereotypes. I would like to thank the ones who sort into categories and pick the group of people who are to be blamed for the accuser’s problems. I would like to thank these because it encourages the eyes to look at a masterpiece of a person and scrutinize. ...
