    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 ...

    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...

    “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 ...

    I quite enjoy my morning bike rides across the cobblestone of London’s side streets. Of course, holding a bell-shaped umbrella over my head. It has pink polka dots on it, my way of paying homage to my preppy upbringing in a polka dot plastered room. Charming corner room in an even more charming fl...

    More than I ever wanted anything, I wanted him. And more than I was ever afraid of anything, I was afraid of him. Afraid of what he would do to my life, that he would stumble into it and make himself at home. He was the kind that moved like a river, overwhelming everything he passed through, putti...

    I stood off to the side, against a locker, watching the halls move with the pulses of a thousand heartbeats walking next to each other. There was no flow to the movement, teenagers were coming from every crevice and going in every direction. They traveled in packs, nerds with nerds, jocks with joc...

    A film that follows a family of writers throughout their individual but intertwining journeys in falling into/out of love, maturing as writers, and growing as a family. “Stuck in Love,” is an honest film, full of raw emotion, and situations that entice you that you can relate to. As a writer my...

    The first sound, was the beat of his heart The second, was the revving of the truck engine The third, was the shaking of his laugh The fourth, was the butterflies rumbling around in my stomach The fifth, was the huff of his breathe when he whispered “I love you.” And then it went quiet, my...

    The rain drops hit the bare parts of my neck as I walked along the edge of the sidewalk. Luckily, I’d worn my red rain boots that morning at the advice of my mother, so my feet were spared the cold agony that is stepping in a puddle of water, which, with my luck would’ve surely happened. My arms...

    The two of us sat under a palm tree, her in her blue dress and auburn hair braided down her back, me and my glasses sitting on the edge of my nose. We sat in silence, looking at the passing people, which was not unusual for us. When finally, she spoke. “You know what I wonder?” My eyes were l...

    The rope holding me above the ground creaked as I swung back and forth. Sitting on the tire that was streaked with patchy brush stroke of a pastel purple, the smile on my face got wider. I was smiling because I saw him walking through the bushes of thorns and ducking under branches. Him was Riley De...

    Give me the real. Give me the old. Give me a piece of your windowless soul. Give me your glasses. Give me your ears. Give me a synopsis of your favorite years. Hollow your breath. Pace your heart. Give me a map, somewhere to start. A kiss on the cheek. A whisper, so meek. A road map to...

    I lift my Italian mug to my lips and look to the partially revealed bottom, glistening with taupe sparkles that were set there by foreign hands. The coffee swirled with streaks of blinding white and an insignificant array of other colors, all I focused on was the vortex of cream. I could still see m...

    The glint of his blue eyes reflected off the bus window, so I took a closer look. I saw it. The root of that beam of gold. It was something I only saw in the mirror, something I thought made me crazy. But I realized, that sparkle enticed me, memorized me, it made me stop and think. It made h...

    I sat in a chair, rimmed with gold filigree and pinstriped cushions. It was beautiful, but not like her. She approached my seat, setting down a silver platter with two floral printed cups, a pot, and a bowl of shiny sugar. She sat across from me, smoothing out her signature skirt with vintage finger...

    When I looked down at us, standing on a stoop in the purple midnight, I saw two lovers who were in each other’s company, brand new. And when I realized we were not perfect, I picked apart our love, and this is what I found. There was a whole lot of you, not enough me. 30 minutes of clean, wet ...
