    Hold me with some fortitude,  I am tired of this solitude.  Tell me some secrets you've never uttered before,  don't leave me wanting more.    Don't let the silence fill the room, Are things going by too fast, too soon? I feel my heart, pounding, against my chest. Too nervous,...

    I hope you know I will always love you, but mom, I'm too tired of fighting with you. You called me names, and treated my love for you like a game. You look at me with such disdain and complain about how I'm such a pain. I don't smoke, and I don't drink my grief away...

    Lets dance. Pull me roughly towards you, and we will attempt to prance. While you map us across the floor I will follow your lead angrily, complaining about the pain and sores. We continue to stumble and trip over each other, and I try not to cry. Start to curtly force your lips on min...

    You talk of peace, I talk of war. Talk that rattles the minds of people, only to extort an explosion of senseless objections. Unnecessary riots heat in innocent conversations, and insults are thrown. Idle talk is churned into a thoughtless debate, and naive bystanders sit in uncomfortab...

    Pen and notebook in hand, I sit on the bench, glaring at the sunlight pouring through the trees and throwing occasional looks of dismay as I see couples hand in hand passing by. I feel the heat rise in my body, as I recollect the argument that had occurred only 10 minutes ago. My eyes ag...

    When I was a child, my mother used to say, to not go too far out the ocean, or I'll never be brought back to bay. And I laughed at her silly advice, and leaped into the waves, feeling them beckon me into their arms. With every step I took, my body slowly disappeared. And each time I...

    Remember those who have died because they surely would have remembered you. There are those who weep and hide, and others who pretend to forget the truth. The pain hurts and we want the knowledge to go away, but wouldn't you want to be lovingly remembered someday? Instead of crying...

    The leaves are showered with the suns beaming rays, and while the trees rustle against the wind, I stroll past the blooming bushes of roses. But up ahead, as I slow down my walk, flowers start to wilt, and as the leaves shudder the wind paves through the branches of the silent trees. I ...

    I think I now hate you. Not because you stood up to me, not because you said cruel things to me but because I feel that we lost what we once had. Maybe you don't know it yet, but I think you'll soon find out. I thought we would be together, and never spend a lifetime apart. Now I j...

    In the sunniest of the days, we sit inside, staring at each other through monitors, not able to touch, to kiss, and hold each other. The stench of a familiar feeling arises in me again, and my stomach sinks. I watch as your face turns red like the roses, and your emerald eyes looking pleading...

    You say you’ll be a little late, And I say that’s ok. I go to bed and wait for you, But you never came. I checked my phone a couple of times, Then listened to some music. I looked at the clock, And wondered where you were, And why its taking so long. You said you would come and say ...

    You told me that when I was a baby, I used to sleep on your chest, and listen to your heartbeat. I was lucky I didn't get crushed. I remember I used to side with you, when you and mom fought. You held my bike, when I thought I might crash into a tree. You kissed my cuts when I cried l...

    I open my eyes, and I smile as I see you lying next to me. Your eyes are closed, and your arm is slung lazily around me. I nestle closer, for your warmth, for your love and for reasons I can't explain why. I blink a few times, knowing that my eyelashes are tickling your cheek, and w...

    On the keys my fingers swing, and when they trigger the music, I close my eyes, and l lose myself to a song. The problems start to blend, and my fingers sweep the piano, suddenly brushing the world away. I don't need the sheets, or the notes. my hands just stream everywhere, and...

    I shared your burden and sticked by you when no one else would. We laughed till we fell off our chairs, and we stayed mad together. I helped your heart, when everyone else stomped on it, and I encouraged you, when others would taunt you. When we fought, I tried to apologize. I didn't e...

    If I were to die, it wouldn't be by jumping. I'm high on the cliff, where the turquoise sea gently beckons to me. I take deep breaths, and tell myself it will be okay. I put one foot ahead of me, then another. I look down, close my eyes and I leap far from the cliff. It's not ...

    It's not about stomping your feet on the ground, looking for a fight, looking for an audience. Or perhaps taking a puff, to show how bad you can be. Seeking the wonder and admiration from the eyes of people, thirsting for acceptance by hiding the truth. But its not always do and tell Resc...

    We all know the story of 9/11. We know people died because of those selfish and ignorant enough to take lives. And we have mourned. Now, in the place where so many memories lay, comes a new beginning. We have held a grudge against the Middle Easterns because of 9/11, and no one can blame th...

    "I will change the world" Everyone wants to change the world, but it takes action not words to do so. "We will make the world greener" But new technology only makes global warming increase more rapidly. We are the new generation. Its our duty to take care of the world and ...

    We are in the car. My dad is going forty miles per hour, taking me back to my mothers house as I am silently looking out the window. "Do you remember that day when I came to your school?" he asks from out of the blue. I don't look away from the window, and I clench my teeth. He look...

    Divorces. They happen for a lot of reasons. And they suck. As a child of divorced parents, it was a punch in the stomach. And now that I am almost an adult, I'm scared to get married. I mean, who wants to fall in love, and get married only to find that their husband/wife is someone totally diff...

    Do you remember a song, little one? A lullaby I would sing to you, all day long? I play it on the piano, and feel the keys go, and watch your eyes slowly close. I come over and stroke your head, and remember you as a child. YOu were my best friend, and I loved you dearly till I had to leave you ...

    Mom, dad, I am not your messanger. For five years I have had to run back and forth, trying to translate harsh messages into kinder words. I'm not your punching bag, where you can punch your hatred for each other through me. Your curses reach my ears, and the slamming makes my heart beat fas...

    With each passing day, every little minor problem peeks itself on top of me, until I can no longer breathe. When no one is looking, my tears boil down, painting my eyes red. When people ask, I prefer to keep my own burden, even if it does get heavier. I don't want to discuss this with peopl...
