    You are... The tiny dew drops Timidly place on the crisp emerald blades of grass, Miniature diamonds Sparkling,Shining, Beckoning the sun to rise And bring its warmth to this Dark, desolate world. You are... The minute strands of a spider's web, Delicate yet firm, Painstakin...

    Who am I to think That I mean something In this pitiful excuse for living They call life? Who am I to think The universe owes me, Society owes me, Because of my mere existence. I am but A speck of dust On the giant shoes of eternity, One person Hopelessly trying To leave their m...

    "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves." I found this quote (which is the theme of The Fault in Our Stars) to be many things--confusing, frustrating, beautiful, and brilliant. To me it means that we can't blame fate or luck whenever we get to a bad place i...

    I turn the page of whispering whim, Dust coating my fingertips. The words are elegant, promising, Filled with same magic felt so long ago. I travel to my hidden home, My solace in this dark, dank world, My oasis in this barren desert of a life, My only escape from reality. Here, the pos...

    Between the darkness of black And the purity of white, There lies a third, And many shades more. Some with a bit of black In the grace of white; Others with but a smidget of white In the dark folds of black. And there, There is where humanity lies, For neither will be ...

    For years, we've gazed at each other, Though always from afar, Tip-toeing around the edges, Cautious smiles lurking on our lips. For years, we've been dancing, Though always a few feet apart. The perfect partner so close, And yet so achingly far. For years, we'...

    Up, up, up we go, Together, we two, no more. The clouds our only company On our quest to unlock the door. The sparkling key to eternity Is the only one that fits. The light becoming clearer In bigger and brighter bits. Up, up, up we go, Together, we two will soar And searc...

    The music of our silent stepping feet Washes all my problems away. The stars look down with approving eyes. Oh, if only there was a way we could stay. Twirling and spinning side by side, There is no place I'd rather be Than here in the woods at midnight, Shadow dancing wit...

    Do you see me right now? Do you even hear the way you’re speaking, what you’re saying? What happened to you? Six months ago, you left as the same brother that I’ve known my whole life, the same brother I made a giant card for after your graduation, the same brother I look up to for a reason I ...

    The wind screams its battle cry, Urging the troops onward, Sending them crashing together, Like two magnets torn apart, Finally meeting once more. It's hard to tell the sides, Each cloaked in billowy white robes. Who's winning? Who's retreating? What is going on up th...

    In my paper airplane, I fly over paper places. A town of paper people; A mass of paper faces. The perfect paper house With the perfect paper yard. The perfect paper family, Whose life is never hard. But what happens when the winds come? What happens when the storms rage? The perf...

    In the shadows, Something creeps, Something mystic, dark, and deep. The flicker of my flashlight, The shadows shrinking back. A roving beam of light, Revealing... "Wait? What's that?"...

    (based off of "Where I'm From" by George Ella Lyon) I am from pencils and journals, From Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch And Smuckers strawberry jam. I am from the small looking cottage, Bigger on the inside than out, As large a lawn as possible, Smelling of fresh cut grass ...

    I'm trying to tell you something important; I'm trying to let you in. But no. You have more important things to do. Your life is more important than mine. You shout and walk out the door. I am left alone, with the statement of my hopes and my dreams still hanging in the air like a broken s...

    They stand all around us, Blending in with the crowd. An average person on their way to their average job. Just a mother, Carting her kids around. Just a father, Kicking off his shoes once he's home from work. Only a brother, Throwing a ball to his dog. Only a sister, Ch...

    In these stormy days, I have nowhere left to turn. The winds push me, pull me, drag me down. The tides swirl me around, slinging me this way and that. But then I find it. I find the thing that holds me down. It keeps my feet planted solidly on the ground. The winds cannot sh...

    As we stand in the lobby of our hotel waiting to check in, an unclaimed cell phone rings on a nearby table. After the third ring, I decide to answer it. Little do I know how much it will change my life. Forever. “Hello?” I say, curious. I notice it’s not an iPhone 5, just some lame flip ph...

    I walk. Slowly, I make my way down the smooth concrete road, the white dashes in the center still giving off the burning stench of fresh tar. A house is at the end of the road, a nice two-story home with a picturesque oak tree dominating a square, green yard. A white picket fence lines the drive, gu...

    I see them. I see the men with their weapons and camps and clothes not suited for the humid weather here. I see them fighting in the jungles of Vietnam, my jungles. I can’t understand it. Why fight their own? Humans fighting humans, it doesn’t make sense? But who am I to try and figure them out...

    The direness had not reached me yet. I thought it was a simple problem, Fixed on that day, Home in an hour. Then the news came, The details, the diagnosis. We left. The direness had not reached me yet. We drove not far, But it seemed a hundred miles. We stopped, rushed inside. ...
