    The world goes on. I can hear the sink still running in the kitchen. The cat scratching at his water dish. The wind outside dropping thick drops of rain on the roof. The smell of dinner burning is stuck in the air, in our nostrils, in our home. The television flurries snow reports and bad news. ...

    Before, when I would disappear from the world and the crowds and the feeling of belonging, I would hole myself up in my room and think about how the days lived and the lives taken and the words spoken all made no sense. I would wonder why I was so disconnected, why in the middle of everyone I would ...

    “There are weeks and hours and sentences that go by too quickly. There are winds and breaths and words that afflict your skin with goosebumps. There are sights and smells and lives that impress themselves into deep gray lines on your brain.” You tell me these things in the dark of the night, ...

    I wasn’t sure, Not until that night When I stepped up in front of you. The very action of it Was so normal And so natural That I couldn’t help But notice your eyes Or your smile Or the way You made my Stupid, stupid Butterflies act up for the first time in years....

    My quiet mind, Well, it used to be full With thoughts of You. My idle hands, Well, they used to fit Just perfect with Yours. I guess my mind Got too loud With all those silly Thoughts of you. I guess my hands Lost their grip Trying to hold on To your fingertips My quiet min...

    The rain splatters drop by drop on the window, as her eyes open to find the dark. Wind beats up hard against the house, and to her ears it sounds like a monster. She moves closer to him, and he wakes to the roar of thunder and her trembling body. He takes her in and can’t help a smile. She nev...

    Is it possible that we, Still so young and unsure, Are making the descent Into the madness of aging? I don’t believe the time has come To say goodbye to summer And hello to that tasteful, colorful fall Into the madness of aging. If we were to say no With tongues of absolute positivit...

    Kiss. One single second of unsure certainty that the moment is right. The fleeting sentiment of fear that has left you with butterflies for the past month. One wrong smile that turns into a contest of wills. Who will break first? Leaning in, the observing of each other's lips and stance. Is t...

    When I think of things changing, I think of rooms for some reason. I think it’s the fact that a room is something that stays the same, but in the end its something you have to move on from, that you eventually change it yourself. I think of all the countless rooms that have meant something to me a...

    A foot from death An edge that comes to a halting stop My feet take one step closer While I stare to the sands below It is that sand Not the fall Not the wind rushing past me But the sand that could kill Small, grainy pieces of memories Memories I can no longer face Faces I can no long...

    As teenagers, we’re asked all the time what we want to do with our lives. For those of us who answer ‘write’, we get a mixed variety of responses. Some respond with interest, asking more, like what we write and how long we’ve been doing it. Some, though, take all they know about sufferin...

    Small gray eyes Have watched Year in and year out At all the joy and pain She saw the deaths She saw the fights She saw a love And she witnessed a lost hope She’ll witness more, I know More loss Maybe a first heartbreak Maybe the smile after a first kiss Though she has no words ...

    There is a room in this home, one that is made solely of paper and words. This room is my home, my haven, where my friends and family exist. We each hold something different, a greater knowledge of a certain subject or a new adventure that no one has yet lived. When someone enters our abode we are q...

    Dear Daddy, Today, when I was in the middle of that crowded, smoke-filled room, trapped in between two guys, one of them wanting to putting his hand on me, in the middle of all of it, I thought of you. I thought about what you would have done if you had been there, and what my punishment would ...

    Can we pinpoint a date Can we say a time As to when we knew She was gone It wasn't that morning But a long time before When I saw that she had stopped And that her fight had left her I picture the help she needed And quiet screams she let out I remember running from her home Jus...

    Dear You, One Month Later I don’t know why I’ve decided to write these letters. Its not like I’m ever going to send them. I guess that right now I just really need the closure. I need someone to talk to, and since I have no one else, I’ll ‘write’ to you. If you’r...

    Will Darkness. That’s all there was here. I have been here for too long, and I don’t know when I’m going to be able to leave. The woman who put me here, in this darkness, had told us something. A way to get out. But with every passing second, I couldn’t keep track of the days here, I ...

    I lay in the dark With no idea Where I am Or who I am All I know is Who I once was But now your lies Have taken that away The whispering shadows Tell me the truth And I separate it From your words I thought I knew What life had in store But now I can’t even see The light at the end ...

    Is it really true? Are my tears real? Oh how I wish That this was just a joke A car accident That’s what they’re saying They tell me you’re gone But I don’t believe it I would know I would feel it If you were gone My heart would have stopped Its true though You’re gone, never ...

    It takes one moment For my world to change Just a few words And I’m upside down I’m lost in a world That I’ve never imagined And I break down When I think about it Everything could end But a whole life could begin If I just took it Took this chance I’d leave behind all of it So ...

    Of all the little things I’ll miss your smile the most You were able to light up the whole room Just by that little toothy grin Of all the big things I’ll miss your hugs the most They could make me feel so safe Even when life was really hard I can’t believe you’re gone Could it ...

    They talk about fairy tales Prince Charming and Cinderella We both smile, each of us only wishing When the truth is: When my world’s crashing down When my sun is burning out When all those stars come falling You will be the one who holds me You’re the one who keeps me sane I never want...
