    I slide on my black spring dress and tie the strings into a bow carefully behind myself. I pull the little black shawl over my shoulders and begin doing my hair. Six years have passed since that day yet I still feel it hit me just as hard as the night it happened. I quickly blink back the tears and ...

    I clutch the journal close to my chest. I lie on my back and stare at the darkness above me. I force the tears as well as the sobs back. I whisper repeatedly. “I’m okay. I’m whole.” “I’m stronger than before. I’m whole.” “I’m not broken. I’m whole.” I let one tear esc...

    Even with melatonin I’m awake in three hours I wake with a jumping start I have to calm my rapid heart And soon my thoughts are racing in Some days they’re about my future Some days they’re about my past In the end I fall back asleep only to be tortured Nightmares worse than reality h...

Orange is courageous and represents excitement, childhood and change. Yellow is young and represents brilliance, goodness, and warmth. Light green is joyful and re...

    I’d rather be a writer who scars the page with pen or permanent marker. My words will forever mark the paper. That way my mistakes can never be erased. No one can pretend they were never there. If I mess up all I can do is cross out the errors and continue writing. Just like life the mistak...

    It’s better than so called love. It boosts your self-esteem. Without it you feel lost That can make you want to scream It can heal a broken heart. It can give you a little hope. Or maybe resurrect a forgotten dream Acceptance is what I need....

    I saw a few old friends last night I fell into a fit of tears I could touch them I could see them They were real! They could see my pain perfectly clear. They didn’t hold judgment Their eyes held no fear I was accepted again that much blatantly obvious. I hugged them all goodbye tight. I...

    There’s no bracelet around my ankle. I’m charged with no crime. Yet I’m locked up without bail. It’d be easier if I’d just have run away. There’s no GPS chip to track me. I’m a decent kid who has had a crap hand. Yet I’m caged up like a criminal deserving to be punished. I...

    I sit on the front steps and pull my shoelaces as tight as I can. Double knotting them I kick the bottom step with my heel. These shoes aren’t going anywhere, but where I tell them. I walk down the walkway and as soon as I hit the sidewalk I take off at a jog. I turn around the corner at the end o...

    Why as the world spins, do I stand? Brothers and sisters hand in hand Life is a circle from where I am. No one understands the Lamb. In God we entrust our lives. Without love we have no drive. Don’t miss out on life’s sweet bliss. We’ll help them from this abyss. We live through ha...

    Each glance in the mirror kills me. It brings back the memories, the pain. I just want to forget I need to quit glancing at the flaws in the mirror. Each reflection in their eyes stabs me. It shows who they think I really am, someone else entirely. I just want to move on. I need to quit loo...

    I need to write Day and night To get it off my mind But soon I find I can’t even bother. It doesn’t feel worth it. My family is perfect likes those silly little house kits. The flaw is in the floor plan. It’s more flawed than man. The only member who sees is my brother. My dad i...

    I’m keeping clean for you I’m avoiding what I’ll abuse I’m still amazed that you’re here for me. I’m done pretending I don’t believe I’ve been counting every time you make my heart stop I’ve done so much to make yours drop I’ve loved every second we’re together. I’ve...

    Paper thin words I always find Paper thin smiles I always see the contemptuous truth Paper thin walls I always hear the whispers through Paper thin masks they never see through Paper thin lies they never cease to believe Paper thin girl they never keep from walking all over me...
