    We expected that justice would be served, That those red, guilty hands be put away And the heartless beast gets what is deserved. But righteousness has escaped us today. She lay under soil, rock against bone, Her mouth taped and stamped with what it calls “love”? How could someone that...

    When you lie through your teeth, Doesn't make me believe you anymore. When you wear your big boy pants, They don't make you more mature. I can see right through you, Like everyone else in the place: You don't have a very good hand, But an even worse poker face... Give it up!...

    When your handes tremble, I'll be there to steady them. When your heart breaks, I'll put each piece back together. When you're feeling ill, I'll nurse you back to health. When you can't walk any farther, I'll be your legs. When you lose your money, I'll ...

    The stares that sent cold waves down the girl's spine Reached, and they pulled, and tore, and stole, and took. 'You are one of us, you have crossed the line,' They said, each throwing her a frigid look. Even with each day she could not accept What she had done to her once sane ...

    I plunge into the sea, for it is truth to me. I float on waves blue that keep me thinking true. I find my colored rose, it is black, I suppose. My black rose on the sea is final truth for me....

    Some subtle changes listen well, though they all damn me straight to hell. I grope for path, I grope for light but status quo keeps me bound tight. Subtle shadows dance until morn, they hold me tight and keep me torn between the choice of wrong and right, as status quo still bounds me tigh...

    I am as soft and smooth as bricks and as torn as my old blue jeans, and just like them I am noble enough to know just what it means to be in need of a little care, compassion, and love once in a while. I need those three, and to be forgiven for all my sin. I sit on the br...

    She sits there, anxiously twisting a lock of her hair. She fretfully glances at the clock once more, and sighs. “Your nerves are getting to you,” I tell my mother, and she tenderly smiles, her finger still tangled in her burgundy hair. There are a few silver strands flowing like small creeks...

    Continue on, on this new path. Don't let this go, Don't do the math. Follow your heart, ignore your head, and let your own soul talk instead....

    I traveled many years ago To a hill fine and supreme, It had pretty poppies and a waterfall That flowed into the stream. The fact of it all is that I had kept it so unknown , I never leaked a single word, And it was all my own. One day I came across you Sitting upon the sill, Yearn...

    The dusty laughs hugging the light, Desire cracked in a silky night, A found victim's, frosty, distant, Life ends in a 14 minute....

    A mournful whisper, anguished wail, Lack of life and extra despair. And once you see the truthful trail, You’ll realize life just isn’t fair. Anguished howls, banished crying, Starvation’s killing in the night. Then more people begin dying When the storm comes, ready to fight. The...

    Your shapeless destinies dance forever, Whispers enfold and intertwine, Memories mingle but they never Come out into light to shine. The sweeping shadows gliding by, So scary, yet like me: They are lost, they want to cry, They want to find their destiny....

    The swallows hover above the ground As they circle solemnly ‘round Over the quiet field of stone That signifies those that are gone. Though they may not walk and roam On this Earth it’s still their home, Because the bodies to those names Lie beneath the silent plain....

    I need an aspirin, I said in my head. The thought of going to Africa was bad enough, but the plane ride was ten times worse! There was a baby crying the whole way, and the mother had earphones plugged into her ears. She was not trying to comfort the poor thing! Plus, the food tasted like plastic toy...

    Sweet dogwoods lean against the hills That turn the plains to flower. And not in warm day or nightly chill Have they seen an evil hour. Tortured with love; sealed with a kiss, The beautiful field grows. But seek not time without bliss As far as nature goes. The friendly scent, though onl...

    Lost. It was the only word I could put to the feeling. It left a foul sting in my mind like the sour after taste of grape medicine. Lost. The miniscule symbols on the information sheet should have led me to a conclusion, or at least a clue, but they just swirled, unprocessed, in my mind, adding o...

    I snaked my hand against the rigid chains on the swing set, thinking of him. He was so beautiful, so noble, and dignified… I didn’t know how I was going to go on without him. He was always there for me, holding my hand and protecting me from the world. Now I only had the cold links of the swing ...

    It truly is amazing how one can learn so much about another human being from their belongings! A prime example would be Andrea Louis. This woman dresses all the time like she is going to the Buckingham Palace- she wears either a proper skirt or trousers with a fancy blouse, ironed and pressed. Her...

    The creaky staircase has ten rasping stairs that whine: One. Two. Three… No matter how hard I try, I can’t trick those steps into saying the wrong number. I go from the top to the bottom: Ten. Nine. Eight… I skip a step: One. Three… I even run up the staircase and it screeches it...

    “Moore,” she called from the bedroom as she fumbled with the clasp of her fragile gold chain. “May you help me with this?” “Of course.” I trotted into our room and fastened the necklace around her neck with ease. I stared into her deep emerald eyes. They were churning with thrill as I ...

    High-pitched horse whinnies of the men’s horses up to work that pervaded the air were the signals that the day had begun. The first up were the milkmaids, swinging their tarnished metal pails as they skipped towards the barns. They let the cattle snooze while they started gathering the milk. Next,...

    The depressing display of withering life, The blossoms all were once so rife. Illness and vigor in a violent strife. But it's all so pointless. The mountains echo the deathly roar Of the storm that hovers o'er, And the peace wants to settle the score. But its all so pointless. It's many...

    If you had to describe the noun "hero" in one word, it would be "Hayley," no doubt about it. Hayley is not only a sister to me, but a mentor as well. Though she is a measly twelve minutes older than me, it is as if she has twelve years of knowledge more than I do. Our family has had more ...
