    You let yourself fall Into this pit of darkness This proverbial hell you were promised. All those years in the sun Have left you burnt and unafraid of death You cry But this is what you wanted A respite from the sun An escape into deepest misery Where the rain could sooth Your scorched, t...

    I now understand what it means to be lovesick The term has always escaped my vocabulary Floating somewhere between infatuation and influenza And from what I understand I am better of not knowing. Who would have thought That you would be the catalyst Infecting me with your eyes without realizi...

    I have learned that Acceptance comes with a price That not many are willing to pay. I have learned that Many people are content to lie To themselves about What their eyes can see. I have learned that They are afraid to confront Their own lies To accept the truth of What their eyes c...

    I would like to be blunt, if you will allow me. A matter has come to my attention over the years of my membership with TeenInk. Ninety percent or more of the time, I receive emails from TeenInk saying that someone or many people have rated my articles. This is all fine and dandy, but I WANT TO KNOW ...

    I am so used to this numbness, This life of sleep-walking and nightmares. But now, now, It has returned, This longing, this aching, From this half-remembered dream Pushed away Because then, then, it had not lasted Had not meant a thing. Now, now, I am so shaken, closed in Panic’s suf...

    I am no Juliet. I am no Romeo. You are no Shakespeare. Please let me elaborate, if you have not decided to navigate away from this page because of a wounded ego. Yes, I have been in love (passionate, screaming, painful, beautiful, cursed… the adjectives go on and on). But in no way can I relat...

    Not again. (Trapped in a tiny little cell.) Damn you. (Need to get out, need to get out.) You piece of s***! Do you have any idea…. (Need to get out, need to get out…) You’ve ruined my life! (Clawing my way out, screaming and screaming.) You’ve torn my heart to shreds and left it ...

    Social networking is used as a reference point in the movie Avatar directed by James Cameron for this system of energy running through the forest in which most of the movie is based. This system can be accessed by the Na’vi people through a biological connection. Through this connection, the Na’...

    “Melanie?” Oh s***. The dye needs five more minutes before I can wash it out…. “Yeah?” “Are you ok?” That’s a great question, Mom. Am I ok? Am I, damn it? I wear black everyday, I listen to screamo and play their songs on the guitar, I rebel against your stagnant suburba...

    Anger and Frustration; Innocence and Bliss. Sisters and Family, Youngest and Silence. I am from silly conflicts, I am from patience. I am from wishing I could scream, I am from watching my sister’s leave. Contradictions and Misunderstanding; Wishes and Expectations. Love and Protecti...

    I picked myself off the floor from where you left me. You stared in amazement as I - yes I - fought back. You didn’t protect yourself when I punched, kicked, and scratched you, making your body identical to mine. You did not react when I reached into your chest and tore your heart apart. You stood...

    “Where are you going, Lizzy?” I looked up, saw my little sister’s silhouette in the doorway. Her curly blonde hair, pulled into two ponytails, gleamed in the light from the hallway. She was wearing her pajamas, which were decorated with all the Disney princesses. How many times had I seen her...

    I wear black, sure. I wear fingerless gloves, sure. Sometimes I like to wear a ratty black skirt, sure. My favorite shoes are my black leather combat boots, sure. I put safety-pins on my black tank tops, sure. I’ve dyed my hair black with some streaks of red, sure. What’s wrong with that? ...

    I woke up to the sound of Paramore’s “That’s What You Get”. I let out a groan and rubbed my eyes, trying to get rid of sleep. I took my time in the shower, slowly coming to my senses. I rubbed away the fog on the mirror so as to see my face. Then I wished I had left it there. Dark circles...

    “Well, I’m not a fan of the beach-boy look. I don’t like blond guys too much, nor the blue-eyed look. Tan is ok, but not a heavy tan. I’m not into the whole cigarette smoke smell type of thing – I’m more into the clean smell. A huge amount of swearing is a no-no. I’m not into the punk-...

    They say there are no more original ideas. They say that love has become a repetition, something we are forced to repeat because otherwise we see no meaning in our dismal lives. Well, they might not say that last one. But I do. And it pertains not to the innocent child but to the narrow mind...

    Let me start from the beginning. No, that would take too long. Hmmm, let’s see. I could sum up, but you wouldn’t get it. Okay, um, I could tell you what I’m doing at this very moment – No, no, no. I’m writing at this very moment, writing this. Come on, come on, how should I say this...

    There are some days where you just sit and wonder at the million thoughts inside your head. No emotion crosses your face as image after image plays before your eyes. The ear buds are stuck firmly into your ears: can you hear the music over the yelling, the whispering, the screaming, the murmuring, t...

    The door squeaked a little as Jake pushed it open. He grimaced and froze, flashing a glance to his right at the sleeping form. The girl, tangled in her sheets, turned to her other side with a fretful sigh. Jake waited for the frown on her face to relax, the worried lines between her eyebrows to fade...

    Dear my love, Emily, I don’t know if you’ll read this. You’ll probably see my name and chuck it in the bin. But I’m writing it anyway in hopes that maybe you still care enough to read it. I have treated you wrongly. You bounced around, so full of energy, so excited to be in love. But I...

    Behind our backs, all of our friends said that we would look so cute together. Whenever they hinted at it, Julie would blush and look away, running a hand through her auburn hair like she did whenever she was nervous. She was nervous a lot these days, more timid and quiet than usual. Whenever they h...

    The music filled me. It was a pulsing beat that overrode the one coming from my heart. People pressed up against me in a sweating, screaming mass, but I didn’t notice it. I just raised my hand, giving the ‘rock on’ sign. I closed my eyes, jumping, moving to the beat. It wasn’t even a very go...

    Oops. I didn’t know it was going to do that. I was standing at the top of the stair well, the stairs connecting the second story to the first story. The pretty glass vase that Mom got a year ago was now in tiny pieces below on the floor of the hall in the first story. The roses, scary roses wit...

    ‘Somehow, everything's gonna fall right into place if we only had a way to make it all fall faster every day if only time flew like a dove God make it fly faster than I'm falling in love’ “Brandon?” I asked timidly as the music continued to play around us. I looked over at ...
