    The sound of falling rain, a cool wet slaps my neck, hairs rise. Dark night sky, grey-black, with the aura of bright white. Damp concrete, the aroma of dull, silent. Gentle whistle, soft rustle, unknown sounds. Street light flickers, on and off, on and off. Steps slow...

    High heels and Prada, Forgotten mind over matter. A broken soul, Running on empty wine. A queen bee, A good soul. Lost with nowhere to go, Wandering around. Jurassic Pigeons, Fly overhead. Dictators, Suddenly vanish. Out in the world, A nudist....

    Somewhere inside, poetry hides. Through layers and layers, right in the middle. If you never fiddle, you’ll never reach the middle. Peel apart each layer, one at a time. You’ll watch me break, you’ll watch me crumble. But you will reach the middle....

    Climbing on my branches, waiting for me to snap. Peel apart layer by layer, watch my bark crumble. Watch my very being droop, until I kiss the dirt. Sweep away my foundation, until my roots beneath become exposed. Pluck my leaves, a part of me will always be with you....

    Beauty is all I know, destruction I can only imagine. Trees, grass, and glimmering water, blind to harsh waves and destructive winds. Where I live and how I was raised, every problem seems so distant, so unreal. The use of my car, my laptop, my phone, most things I take for granted....

    In my American Literature class at school, we had a circle-up discussion on Naturalism. I started with the question, “Why do some cultures take important issues to such extremes?” I would have liked the chance to talk about where my question originated, however, I’m shy when it comes to full-c...

    The sound of running water. Heat blazes, the sun glares. I am a tribute to Apollo, he takes my soul. A glare off the clear water, beautiful. Sharp jolts, my feet on fire. Glass, I almost step. Green, slimy goop, I slip. Icy cold, I hesitate, my toes go numb. ...

    My mom, dad, sister, and I pull up to the side of the dirt road and turn off the car. There’s a hill to the right, and all I can see are trees, all the way. There’s a path, a hill, one destination. Every summer up until my parents divorced, our family drove up to the Rocky Mountains to go cam...

    Your words lead to my demise, Hurtful, abusive, too hard to stand. You don’t see the effect, When you’re not around. Take a step back, And reflect on your choices. I hope you hear those voices, “You've done wrong.” You don’t hear my sad song, Open your eyes and open y...

    Family meeting, Am I in trouble? What did I do? No, not that reason. My report card is all A’s, Excited to share. Dad comes home. Dark skies, It’s late. Family in the family room, The lights are dim, A school night. Look dad, My report card, Great job! Let’s celebrate after,...

    I put faith in you, My heart, My soul. For what? A few lies, To be used? Our connection, Didn't matter, Nothing to you? Time spent alone, Not invited, What did you say? I have a chance, You speak, Chance gone. Your only friend, Always there, Who are you now?...

    Do you notice the agony draped across my face? There’s pain in every crevice. Do you watch my corners turn when I am hurt? It’s heavy enough to bring me down. My head droops lower and lower each day, Do you care? Do you remember my genuine, authentic smile? She hasn't come out ...

    The breeze, whipping my hair, cooling my body. Not a sound to be heard. Trees and rocks as far as the eye can see. The horizon seems a million miles away. Light reflecting off the cold white, I am blinded. Blinded not only by light, but beauty too. That thought provoking, captivating sweet sil...

    That sweet sound vibrating in my ears creates a barrier. Nothing can get in, nothing can come out. Those harmonies, they work perfectly together. My mind clears, my breathing slows. I can feel my heart beat, my pulse. Suddenly, nothing matters anymore. I forget everybody and all my problems. ...

    You bring out the best in her. Your radiation makes her invincible. Stories are weaved through your soul, You tell her these stories and You tell of once great warriors. You light up the night sky so she may see. You provide guidance for her when she is lost. You provide entertainment for th...

    Feet with the bak bak, hands with the feet, Yeah, we’re the ones producing that sick beat. We’re getting hyped up, We’re not afraid to pipe up! We’ll stare you down, And make you frown! We've worked so hard, We’re no bucket of lard. We’ll scare you away, And we’ll keep i...
