    There was that time we danced in your kitchen, our socks picking up traces of dirt along the hardwood floor. I kept looking down and you kept looking at me, that way that you always do, your eyes two tunnels, or whirlpools that suck me in. There was that time she made us buy cards for each other ...

    It's just one little message. Who cares, really? It probably only says one word. Like, "Hey." I hate that word. Why can't people say, "Hello!" anymore? Because it isn’t cool. It’s like putting a 'g' at the end of words like 'chilling' or, &...

    Alterior motives break all the windows in this house House of cards stacked high High is a feeling or a level Level-headed I jump again Again I fall but the distance isn't so great Great figures of speech and you know them all All the tricks to turn me to gel Gel through your hair or thr...

    I stood still in front of the full length mirror. Covered in goosebumps, I placed my fingertips on the reflection of my face. It was different from the last time I looked, and the last time hadn't been too long ago. What had happened in between? My eyes were brighter and wider and they were dee...

    Last year, you were all I could think about. I saw the green marble eyes, blue liquid eyes, brown chocolate eyes? Who remembers? I did - every detail etched into my mind, leaving a burning trail. I let you in last year, and you saw the blazing paths. You saw the beating heart. Last year I was stup...

    My point of view comes from up quite high. Before I even wake up, up I go on the elevator to the penthouse. I hear the people's voices before I open my eyes. I am still tired but not daring to stay asleep. I'll miss too much, and with only 24 hours in a day, an extra five minutes of sleep is a...

    Casually toss your hair Skimming your shoulders Springs In springtime slush Feet paddling through Row row row your boat I'm on board Tell me what happened You Look around Eyes darting hitting targets Moving shots unsure If you should proceed Remembering How it was A...

    The reactions from faceless people - nameless people - when I tell them my dream ignites a fire inside me. I contemplate stabbing them with my freshly sharpened pencils, but then reality tunes in and I realize I should probably write my novel before going to prison. That's what mother would wan...

    I forgot The songs I used to sing When I went deaf With longing I forgot How candy used to taste When I went flavourless With desire I forgot The colour of my eyes When I went blind With passion I forgot How my hands felt unheld When I went senseless With love...

    "Katherine?" "Yeah?" His fingers searched for my hand in the dark. The moon was our only light, and the glimmering shine outlined his plump lips and round nose. I rolled closer to him, wet grass chilling my back. "Katherine?" "What is it?" "...

    You sat in a jar Of new pennies My friends The ones I seldom had time for But the ones I felt guilty for Because I knew Even though I could never chill with them They'd always have my back You were the only one I ran into your arms Folded in tears My world dark, bleak, depressing g...

    I can't even find one word. My head spins and crashes, thoughts colliding and exploding all at once and I think I'm going crazy. Your words! Oh! You might as well throw a bowling ball at my stomach, it's a punch in the gut that sends signals firing up wires into my heart. Pinchi...

    Funny it is, how you thought this was what you wanted all along. What would make your last summer of freedom memorable. It was something you dreamed about, thought about in your free time. Well, now you're stuck, aren't you? Maybe you should have listened to me all along. You k...

    Today in gym Our backs pressed against Pluto-blue mats Routinely bringing our chins To our knees Then back down Teacher called them "Sit-ups" We called them "Torture" I say "I met Noah today. Seems nice." And your eyes go all fuzzy Like a broken televisio...

    At 3 P.M. My body's limp But my mind Is ready to explode Thoughts run wild Adult voices in my ear Yelling Saying, "Hurry up! Grow up! Get up And do something! Oh, and when are you publishing That novel?" When all I want to do Is nothing at all No time No time For rela...

    I feel it fading It's slipping away Through the cracks Leaking out All over the cold floor Patch these cracks I don't want to forget You Make this last Don't lose it We know It was something strong I want to hold this in my hand When your hand isn't mine to hold ...

    Oh, you make me so mad! I don't know how much more obvious I can be without using the words, "I love you!" I guess you're not interested. I let our fingers touch when we're sitting on the grass, but you're quick to pull away. So fast, it's like it never happened in the first place. Did you not...

    The air was so fresh. It was a day when the January snow was melting, but you couldn’t be sure that we wouldn’t have another heavy snowfall. Cars scuttled through ponds of slush and the snow was the perfect sticky-snowball-making texture. I was warm in just a cherry V-neck sweater and jeans. ...

    I glanced at the clock for the fourth time in under five minutes. Whenever you're in a bad situation, time always seems to slow down. It's like it's enjoying watching you suffer. And a baby's crying was the most torture I had ever endured. People who haven't dealt with a colicy infant don't know wha...

    I cycle by your little cottage for the seventh time that afternoon, and each time I notice my tires digging more and more angrily into the gravel road. The rubber wheels spin up loose rocks that hit me in my calves, I'm going so fast. I strain to see in, and try not to slow the bike while wishing I ...

    I didn't think it was a funny joke It didn't make me wet my pants laughing It didn't even make me giggle Or smile I thought it was a mean joke A joke that made someone hurt A joke that was only humorous For the person telling it I was told not to spill the punchline But I did....

    To My DEAREST, Thanks SO much! Thanks for wasting my time and thanks for all the fake signals. I'm SO GLAD you had fun watching me fall for you. Hopefully you'll have just as much fun with the next girl you do this to. But I do sincerely mean it when I say thank you for the lessons you've t...
