    When my best friend was fifteenth she got a tattoo of a rose of her hip. Her mother gave her so much hell, but my best friend didn't give a damn. She showed off her body art with every chance that arrived that summer, with crop tops that revealed her tiny waist. The tattoo started to fade after...

    You always ended your letters with “I'll never leave you.” I ask myself how can four small words have such an effect on me? They are capable of making me never give up. Those four words were my personal definition of hope. They had the ability to change my day; When I thoughts of ...

    Heroes are in the stories she stays up late reading, and weeping about, not just of the bittersweet end but because she needed that friend, she wanted a hero, one to save her from herself, problems, and world crooks but she realized heroes only exist in fictional books. She flips anoth...

    I had to see her go through guys like it was nothing. Each one treated her wrong. They never lasted long. But what kind of man puts his hands on the women he loves? Mom. I saw you. Covered in bruises, you told me it was nothing. You claim you fell, but the second he walked in that doo...

    Your daughter? The one with the big brown eyes? And the pretty long hair? The one you nicknamed, 'Your little girl'? Well, your little girl lies to you and under her breath she curses at what you tell her to do. She cries herself to sleep, stressed over all the secrets s...

    They misjudge everything you do, They place labels on you, But have they ever walked in your shoes? Delinquent is just a word And some how along the way, It has became your name. The Delinquent You steal money You break into cars You sneak the food from the corner stores And everyone t...

    The lowering of my shoulders, Bowing of my head, I am a living sponge, Soaking up every word you said. My fingernails are torn and bloody, I bite down when you’re in my presence, And I’m not sure what to say. Any word coming out my mouth is wrong in every way. My attempts to please leav...

    “Get out of my head, get out of my head,” The Boy said. He stared at his phone, the message lighting up his screen. He hoped someone would come bursting through his bedroom door. He hoped something would intervene. But as he sat alone on his bed and read the words aloud, His heart started ...

    Dear friend, I thought about you today, even though I know I shouldn't. I still call you friend, even if that's not what you are to me anymore. My mouth is just afraid of saying your name Those four letters that belong to you will send a shiver down my back and I promised others I wo...

    The word 'addiction' leaves a bitter taste in my mouth The flavor of metal remains at the tip of my tongue His hand grips the trigger upon the gun His teeth are chattering sweat forms on the center of his palms His lips are chewed and broken I will forever remember his last words s...

    I met Junkie James one day at the park; He had brown eyes and a freckle right above his lip. His hands swung by the pockets of his basketball shorts, his hair wasn’t brushed, and when he smiled, Junkie James had a small dimple, not very noticeable, but I noticed it. His teeth were ye...

    On the couch, I sat, and ticked away time. I looked at the tall, wide Grandfather-Clock, waiting for that knock, but it never came. I checked my makeup, sprayed my hair, smiled in the mirror, and pictured you saying those sweet words, like I would stay to you. I tugged on my shirt, pulled...

    Not so sure why I liked you like I did, I think it was because you didn't have much, but you were always happy, you slept most of the day away, partied with your friends who I hated, you got into trouble a lot, but you were never sad, and I really wanted someone like that in my life, I t...
