    Let me not forget all of our mistakes Remember the reasons that we parted Maybe that will dispel the stupid ache Or worse I will be left a heart hardened You’re the stupid healthy green in the leaves The little chirping birds in the morning The world thinks you’re a saint but you’re ...

    Makeup and mirrors Dark circles concealer Build your new face while your lip quivers Blank stares blinking Your true self sinking Don’t let it show Slowly, carefully craft your mask Quiet your head with a sip from a flask Fool everyone They’ll be gone in the long run Tired nights wit...

    Go my love, follow your dreams. Hoist the sails, Sail away from me. Be cautious my dear, of the rough seas. I worry that you won’t return to me. Flee my love, escape this life. Find adventure, take your knife. Be careful my dear and avoid strife. When you come home, I’ll become your wi...

    My woman with the scarlet hat is seated at dinner with a suited man. She sits with her back towards me, Though I would love to glimpse her face. Does she know I’m here? no. Would she still recognize me? yes. The light from the windows streams in casting a glow in the room. I would feel...

    I pace and pace and pace the floor. My guards stand watching at the door, Ensuring my safety from my enemies. Little do they know the biggest threat is inside me. Many come with grievances waiting to be heard. Asking me to solve their problems, they twitter like little birds. Where- I wonder...

    Silently she sits there in your kitchen counting the time that passes. Think of how much she sees behind her glasses. The morning routine: making coffee, cereal, eggs and bacon on a sunday; Conversations at the countertop: Father asking “how was your day?” The only time she is payed ...

    We sat on my porch on a warm evening in June. The lightning bugs danced their carefree dance, lit only by the quarter moon. We looked up at the dark sky, brightened by twinkly stars. Your fingers twirl my curly hair, while my mind travels off far. Sometimes I wish I were Wendy being taken...

    In.   Out.   In.   Out. Breathe. Through your mouth, Not your nose, Practise the pattern.   Put on your flippers, Your mask and your life vest. Climb down the ladder Or jump off the edge To the cold and unknown depths.   “Don’t be frightened of the statues,” The crew...

    Leaves crunch under my feet. It’s late september. I got to drive to the orchard.   Wind whipping in my hair, I control the speed. My jeep travels smoothly along the gravel.   At the orchard, Children are skipping, Holding their parents’ hands.   Crisp. Sweet. The scent...

    A shot fired. An animal down. Hushed running through the brush. Sawing. Ripping flesh. Carted away to be sold. One thousand one hundred and four. Killed in one year. Almost three every day. At this rate In six years There will be none left in the wild. A whole animal killed. ...

    People keep saying, “If you loved Tangled, then you’ll love Frozen.” The movies are very comparable: both are newer Disney movies with strong female leads. Frozen embodies the stereotypical Disney movie with bad parenting, princesses and true love which overcomes tragedy. However, the stereoty...

    Four Questions It was a normal fall day, similar to many before it. I drove to school after stopping at Starbucks for my winter usual: a Venti Vanilla Chai Tea. Back at school, I slid into my favorite parking spot: not too far that I was in danger on days with weather predicaments and not too clos...

    Should we allow people to stop our love? Or prevent the most honest of feelings? Or shall our love fly free like a dove Hidden deep in the darkness of evening? Shall we throw away all worries and fears And live out our love content forever? Or hide what we have for many sad years? Friends w...
