    I watched the clock Half past ten Up and down the room My eyes raced the floor My foot taps the ground Like a metronome My heart beats so fast I feel it will burst I look back at the clock His words are jumbled His face is blurred I stare at the faces Around the room White tiles, blan...

    Blooming like a flower when you're near Remember the time we jumped the pier? We waited all night just to see the sunrise You wore that smile that I can't even recognize Anymore, since you left me Waiting all day just to see the sunset Dancing all night to forget we ever met Your smile is l...

    Snowflakes sprinkle the ground like tiny diamonds falling from the heavens. I try to wipe off the frosted window with the edge of my sleeve. The snow is falling faster now and the visibility outside is almost nonexistent. Grandmother has started playing Christmas songs on the record player to atte...

    We were on the phone. She was in the city; me in the suburbs. I sat on the couch in utter boredom on an average summer day while my dad watched some television show like usual and my brother and his girlfriend made out in the other room. No one from school had spoken to me since sophomore had termin...

    You're sneaking around In that mask of yours Your heels scratch the ground And you fall to the floor You are a wreck As you shut the back door A light is flipped on You heave a sigh As night turns to dawn And wobble your way to the bathroom No one is awake You rest your head on the...

    I wait for your call Everyday but it never comes You would rather be alone Than pick up the phone You would rather forget my name Than type my number And be sane You don't want to talk You don't want to sit around And talk You would rather be all alone Than pick up that phone ...

    Look to the ocean What's the commotion? As the waves break the shore And we sit waiting for more As sand turns to muck And my feet become stuck While shells line the sand And you grasp my hand Birds reach the ground And our love is found Look to the abandoned dock Where all the sea g...

    "Do you love me?" He asked softly as we stood on the street corner during a gloomy winter day. Christmas lights hung sporadically on the dull, brown, brick coffee shops and diners. Snow sloshed around as cars passed through and slid down the intersection. The sky was gray and cloudy with n...

    With the busy schedules of the twenty-first century, it is amazing that people still find time for themselves. Arguably the most hectic lives are that of involved high school students. They are apart of sports and clubs, are in advanced placement classes, and are working to get into good colleges. W...

    Why is it always like this? She always has to fall for the boy she never speaks to. While plenty of guys talk to her and offer their ear, there is always the one who doesn't. The quiet, brooding one in the corner of the room. The one who they've known for years but have never spoken to. ...

    My parents were college dropouts who had spent too much time partying and too little time studying. I can tell they have been wearing this regret for twenty-two long years. I see it in the way their eyes appear hollow and their smiles practiced. Because of my parents own failures they have put extra...

    Last semester I loved you now you're just a fading memory An oddity in a pile of recollections A mistake on a test A hole in a knitted scarf Who were you? This guy who never spoke And made no impression On anyone ever Except for me I looked into your eyes Like through a frosted windo...

    Forgotten like a pebble in the ocean You're like a train set into motion Always slowly fading from existence I keep on building my resistance Like some kind of immunization Drifting farther from the station As the smoke lifts into the air So does my long, golden hair Memories start pas...

    I see you at your locker I stop but you don't even notice I am there We walk passed each other in the hall But you just stared ahead I waved at you And all you did was smile You used to be my confidant Our bond was strong Like a tree rooted to the ground But there was a storm One day ...

    It's hard to miss someone not there Like a leaf blowing through the air You dissipate like a drizzling rain You go away and there's no more pain Leave me standing in the hall You didn't bother to even call I kept waiting every day When you left in early May Like a sand in the ...

    I took off this morning with nothing really in mind. It was nice out so I got dressed, grabbed my IPod, and put on my roller blades. I went out into the early spring air and enjoyed the feel of warmth on my normally frostbitten skin. I have no idea where I will roller blade today. Usually, I just re...
