    We don’t know whether we should cry because you’re gone, or smile and rejoice in memory of your laughter. Maybe we cry because your laughter will no longer lift our hearts, and your smile will no longer brighten our day. Maybe we cry because of those who will never know your beauty o...

    I see a guy walking down the hall, walking away from a girl. Tears are pouring down her face. As I walk to my car, I wonder: will she walk to her car like that? With tears rolling down her cheeks? Will she cry the whole way home? Wondering what she did to deserve the hurt? Will her heart br...

    Memories of you rush over me; Your laughter, I hear; Your smile, I see; My giddiness, I feel. But the pain in your eyes haunts me. The sadness in your laughter doesn't escape me. Thoughts of you taunt me; Your words, I hear, clearly; Your hands, I see, perfectly; My heart, I gi...

    I sit in class as though in a daze, staring straight ahead. My eyes water, and I have to blink back tears. I should've known, right? That this would happen? That he'd hurt me? Is it really that easy for someone to overlook me? To move on? To not want me anymore? Tears well up and I c...

    Tears falling, I look out and see only darkness. Isn't the sun supposed to be shining? Isn't the sky supposed to be blue? Clock ticking, it's only 11 in the morning. Where are the birds that should be singing? Where are the clouds that should be dancing? People talking, ...

    Do I deserve this title? I am called the Queen of Clubs, but is that me? Am I stubborn? Undoubtedly. I never give up, not when I want something. not when giving up is the easiest, most needed thing. But am I apathetic? Do I not care? Do I detach myself from every one, every thing? Do I pull aw...

    I tried to remember only the best of you. But the bruises kept taking me back to the times you were a weapon - your hands used to shatter the best of me. I tried to forget all of the worst of you. But the scars keep telling the stories of the times you tore me into pieces - your wo...

    Birds soar through the sky, freedom beneath their wings. Waves greet their new companions, rising in cerulean and turquoise crests to show their joy. But she can only watch the waltz, constriction her only friend. She stares past cliffs and sand, dreaming of a clandestine escape to leave ...

    There's a forest I'm trapped in and branches are are pulling me down. Treetops are blocking the light and I can't see my way out. Thorns are slicing my body; The darkness is growing and taking over me. Where's the light to save me from this night? I cried out W...

    Words fall from your lips Like daggers and stab into me, A pain I can’t resist. And like a dagger, Those sharp words make me bleed. I close my mouth, Let you continue to stab me. Because this pain is so sweet, Like a soft touch turned cold slap. With this pain come my tears… With the...

    There was nowhere else to go. I had been wandering the streets for too long, seeing little kids stare, point, and laugh. Like they'd never seen a nose piercing before. As if getting rejected at interview after interview wasn't enough. The playground around the corner had always been...

    My father is Missionary Baptist. I sit in his church and hear the less-than-sophisticated pastor preach about a salvation that never ends, about a God that sends people to hell when they've never heard “The Way.” I hear about being a “good Christian,” saving souls and leading people to ...

    Your little girl cut Because your little girl cried Alone at night when you thought she was sleeping, Alone at night – She fell asleep weeping. Your little girl cut Because some things were too hard to bear, Alone when you thought she was studying, Alone whenever – She fell asleep wee...
