    Snow melts. It floats around in a flurry, lands on your hot little finger, and melts. I hate that it does that. Why can’t beautiful things stick around for a while? Like snow in December, Christmas lights strung up on balconies of homes, and you. I guess all good things come to an end. It isn’...

    I think he said something funny. In the picture, she was laughing. Her cheeks were the color of a raspberry crushed under a boot. My favorite part of her eyes, the Caspian Sea blue, was glistening like a street lamp. That picture was taken two years and seven months before. The only thing that h...

    You make me want to drive down the highway with my eyes closed. I feel like flying blind with you by my side, in the passenger seat that smells like my brother’s cologne and Whataburger French fries. When I’m with you, I want to take my hands off the wheel and let you take control of me. I kn...

    Love is a beautiful thing, but we have no idea what to do with it. It’s like handing new parents their baby. They’re marveled by how happy and how terrified they are at the same time, holding perfection in their arms. And they have no idea what the hell to do. Petrified they’ll drop it or lo...

    You are the permanent ink smudges on my right pinky finger from writing. Sticking yourself in the cracks of my hand so we can touch the world together. Do you ever think about the way we affect each other? I mean, do you know that my knees wobble when I walk towards you, hoping you’ll catch me...

    I walk down memory lane because I like running into you. Brown eyes that swirl like dark chocolate being pureed in a blender, they always make me stop and stare, licking my lips because I’m dying to taste you. Every time I find you sitting on a stone bench like the one we stopped at after lunch on...

    There's that first love, the one that makes you fidgety, staying up until two am writing really bad poetry. The love that makes your stomach swirl when he smiles. That love you meet in high school or at summer camp, the one that's just strong enough to give you a taste. Then there's...

    I’ve never been to New York, but you make me want to get lost on subways and eat a pretzel on the sidewalk. I don’t like science fiction novels, but I’d read them with you while drinking coffee on a rainy day, just so I could see you smile at me over the edge of your book. Soccer isn’t m...

    During the summers, you and I would run through our backyards together, underneath your Mother’s clothesline, swatting at hung t-shirts and socks, breathlessly giddy. That was when we were little, paired together by parents because we were close in age and we were lucky enough to take to each othe...

    I remember riding in the shuttle bus from the airport up the winding mountains of Sewanee, Tennessee. Little did I know, that it would become one of my favorite places on earth, and the place that I spent the best summer of my life at, on my way to the Sewanee Young Writers’ Conference. The confe...

    “Shh,” you leaned into me, grazing my bare shoulder with your covered one. We were sitting against a brick wall in the middle of a field, drinking the strawberry wine your dad made that tasted so bad, but felt so good ascending down your throat. I was pretty drunk at that point, but you weren...

    I went to your grave yesterday, with a stone statue of a woman made to look like she was dancing and happy. Ramming the metal stake of the statue into the soft ground above you, the aches and screeches the earth made in the form of crunches pained my ears and heart. The crumbly plot was barricaded...

    I hate September. I mean, it’s pretty the way warm colors melt into each other on fallen leaves, and I like the swift breeze of autumn. But in the south, September means football and I hate football. 5 reserved seats in the middle of the home-side stands, the best view by far. Boxed in by God-...

    I always liked that you smoked cigarettes. Tears in the edges of my eyes from the smoke, a husk in my throat from breathing in the clouds you exhaled, the remnant taste of nicotine on your lips that transferred to mine. I especially liked the nights you would tell my parents we were going to Wedne...

    Wondering if bugs ever get dizzy, I sit and watch the enchanting fireflies circle and loop and dance around the tall, thick grass of the Benedict Dormitory courtyard. I’ve never seen theses lightning bugs before this day, and they immediately take a tight grip on my focus. The grass is taller and ...

The show consists of physical, mental, and social competitions for a position of temporary control over the fates of fellow houseguests, and the grand pr...

    “Any questions?” Phoebe asked into the microphone headset, staring at the sea of people in front of her. They were all blinking quickly, trying to process what they’d just heard, some were even crying, which Phoebe secretly loved. She had just finished giving her testimony, which is a summar...

    This is so stupid. I’m standing here, at his door, and I feel so stupid. I’m really mad at Mrs. Brevinson for throwing me into this whole mess. It’s all her fault, I knew is shouldn’t have taken AP Chemistry. Randall told me not to, but I just didn’t listen. So while I’m standing here,...

    “Can you see me?” “No.” Your words blew cold air in my face and I could see the heat of your breath in a cloud, lingering by your mouth. “Do you want to?” You paused and that scared me a little bit, or maybe I was just really cold. Either way, a shiver zipped down my spine. “No,...

    Blink once for no, twice for yes. Tell them all that you loved me best. Throw me a kiss, a smile, and your whole life too. Can’t you see, don’t you know, this is all for you. You’re certainly glad, I am certainly too, certain of only my love for you. Tie up your secrets with a bright ye...

    Your baseball pants cling to every part of your lower body, your jersey is blowing in the wind. Cleats shuffle across the grassy field to watch your sure to be homerun. I move closer to the fence, my fingers grip at the twisted up wires, you turn around and wink at me through your helmet, and I coul...

    Today I have decided not to like life anymore. I came to the realization while eating cereal this morning, that life is much too complex for me to enjoy, I must be doing something wrong. I have made a list of things, these are things that will hopefully help make me into a cynical person, who wi...

    I could sense your breathing, see your rigidly carved chest move up and down. Your head rested against a tree trunk, a book rested against your hips, and your eyes fluttered across each page, left to right. Aches of desire gripped my intestines and twisted for you, I was pinning for you. My ...

    “Left turn ahead,” Charlotte, my GPS said in a monotone computer voice. I was cruising down the Galveston streets in my little red VW bug, top down, sunglasses on, completely lost. You see, every “right turn ahead” seemed to be a sketchy surf shop, and I wasn’t diggin that. So I kept ...

    She was that girl, with an athletic headband on, wearing her brother’s old band t-shirt, with a hot pink flash of K-Tape running up her arm. You could tell that her wrist was bothering her by the way she clutched her books, the veins in her palm were bulging with discomfort. I personally, thought ...
