    The best kind of book is read in a big, comfy chair that swallows you whole. It takes you to another world, a world you actually want to be in. It’s the kind of book that seems like it’s made for you and only you. The best kind of book is served with a side of your favorite hot drink. It’s...

    We had been assigned to read The Teacher Who Changed My Life by Nicolas Gage that night. I, being the reading nerd in the class, had actually read unlike most of my classmates. It was an inspirational story about a teacher who had, in a tough-love manner, who inspired a Greek immigrant to be a journ...

    “It's amazing,” they say, “she keeps coming back for more.” More what, you may ask. More pain, heartbreak, loss, emptiness, loneliness, hurt. More damage, suffering, trauma, desperation, sadness. More depression, grief, sorrow. It’s amazing, I think, that I'm able to still g...

    Forever, that’s what you promised. But you broke it. The promise wasn’t all that was broken, My heart broke. It didn’t just break, it tore and collapsed And stopped working. It beat out of my chest when I read those final Words from you to me. I shook with rage and hurt, the two rippin...

    Come, take a walk with me. Remind me of what we once were, Of what we used to be. How we used to laugh so hard we’d cry, How we could talk for hours about Absolutely nothing and still Find a way to be entertained. Tell me of the times where we would just Pour our hearts out to each other ...

    We were supposed to grow old together, Plan out our lives together, And be best friends forever. That’s changed. Now I get that electric shock when I see you, The bad kind that reminds you that you're going Through a hell that’s tailored especially for you. We were best friends, and ...

    We broke up, But we didn’t break up. We were never even together, We weren’t a couple. We were friends. Not just friends, best friends. More than that, we were more like sisters. We laughed together, Had inside jokes like all happy-go-lucky best friends do. We loved each other like only...

    In glanced up, a ring of fire Was circling its master Her raven hair was starting to blaze And wave violently in the wind. It caught orange-red, it started to singe. Instead of burning off her head, It turned to a burnt red color, the color of Pure power. A volcano erupted behind her, the la...

    I wonder as I sit and write by the outdoor lights of surrounding houses. I wonder why Lloyd is spelled with two L’s and not one. It’s the same as wondering why Aaron is spelled with two A’s and not just one. The air here is humid and sticky. Just staying outside for a minute, even on the porch...

    As stupid as it sounds, trust and love isn’t what makes the world a good, kind, or even better place. It’s common sense. I mean, think about it. If people trusted everyone they met right off and didn’t use their common sense, then conmen would rule over everyone. If no one thought: “well, I...

    Even the trees show that I'm in A foreign place The trees were bare and ragged, Holding secrets no one dared asked About. No had a right to know. I stared at them as I came into this place, Wondering how they could stand so tall only To stand still. They were like the guards of Buckingh...

    I spun around, my hair flying. He was right behind me, still. I reached into my back pocket, gripping the cool metal of Daddy's pistol. I pulled it out and pointed it at him. This is what he deserved, to be shot, to not live again. He had his chance and he ruined it. I was doing him a favor, ye...

    . Even though romance movies were always really predictable, I still loved them. Most romance movies went by the same script: First: the girl and guy would find each other in a little, innocent part of a small town. Second: they'd fall so deeply in love; they didn’t care what was going to ...

    Her lethal red eyes stared Me down from afar. Her wild, ambushing red Hair seemed to attack Me from all angles. There was no use in hiding, She would find me. There was no use in running, She would catch me. I had to stay and fight this Independent woman Like a man. I didn’t defeat her...

    My hair was the long, Tangled mess it Usually was as I Ran through the Woods as quiet as a mouse. I was running from The witches who had cost me My life, now I was living as the dead. They were trying to Put me down once And for all. But even though my Dress was in tatters and My feet ...
