    With your stilettos tapping the glossy floors, When you go to college, You expect everything to be different. You expect to walk into a world of maturity, But what you enter? It's just another world of grungy tennis shoes, Far too similar to the Sketchers you came from. Some people will...

    An artist need not be tortured, To find his voice, Rather find inspiration, By tuning out Life’s background noise. The troubles, the trials, the trying times, Don’t make a novel, Or a rhyme. But all perspectives, Have something to say, If the life be whole, fringed, or fray...

    There are so many things, So many questions I wish I could ask you. But such would be far too predictably unamusing, Such would bring undoubtable disappointment doubtfully. I would rather just sit here and blow bubbles, Yes, I’ll watch them float, The thoughts and the dreams only I could bl...

    Our hands always move rhythmically, His in time, mine in toil. The sweat slowly slides down my cheek, Satisfaction of effort efficient. But that was then. Now, my hands rest at my side, While his remain at his steady task, Ticking, ticking, ticking. I am the unemployed: Plans are made...

    Everyone wants it. Many claim it. Few have it. But I have it. It’s not from the iron I pump, Or the heights I jump, Or even the stairs I climb. But I have it. We have it. The ones on the sidelines Can see it in our eyes. We have it: STRENGTH It’s in us, When the game i...

    It’s reeling. The faces are screaming The tears are streaming The faithful stopped believing. It’s dying. The faces are lying The tears are crying The faithful stopped trying. It’s sinking. The faces are weeping The tears are leaking The faithful stopped leaping. This is the state ...

    A rainbow of colorful glass adorns the huge orb, It reflects the joy of the past year, Like a movie screen, the mirrors play back triumphs and successes, As it drops, hope soars, Hope for a future framed by happiness, Another cheerful chapter waiting to be read. She stands on the frigid pavem...

    Jealousy, certainly not something of which to be envious of, chokes the life out of rationality, It eats away, like corroding metal, the sensibility with which you previously lived, You don’t look for it, but it very often finds you, frequently when you least expected, That’s how surprises ge...

    They say that love is blind. But love is vain, so vain it overlooks all else to get exactly what it wants. If love was blind, it would reach out to everyone, regardless of what they looked like or the past deeds done. Love is petty, fickle, and fleeting, attaching itself like a leech t...

    she wonders,why this could happen to her, of all her plunders, this one tears into her heart like no other.. .and it wasnt even her fault. Divinity took the life of her one so dear, The epitome of her worst fear, He was Ripped from her grasp, To go home at last, To that place in the sky, TH...

    Questions fill my mind, Like the smoke that billows in your lungs, Eating away at all reason. The poison you insist upon stains our love like treason. Worrying about you is getting old. I attempt to wrap my mind around it, How you degrade yourself with this drug, Cant you understand you deser...

    When you give, give, and give, Do you expect something in return? When you pour out yourself to someone else, Do you anticipate the same response? When you share your secrets and dreams, Do you want to hear theirs as well? When they don't care, When their actions become hypocritical...

    Part 4 (of 4) Look for parts 1, 2, and 3 to catch up on the story. The alarm went off way too early the next morning. Kaily sat up sleepily in bed. The lights were on in her room. “That’s odd,” she thought. Worried, she got up and looked around. Nothing seemed out of place. “This is so weir...

    continued from part 1... “It is so kind of you, Miss Jenkins, for taking the time out of your busy schedule to show me around.” Blaine said almost mockingly. “My name is Kaily, first of all. Secondly, we are not ‘friends’ as you blatantly told Mr. Binks. But we have met before. You so k...

    Footsteps on the pavement seemed to echo as she walked down the street. Raindrops splattered noisily about, adding to the gloom of the day. Dark clouds gathered and loomed overhead. She could not remember the last time she had felt the warmth of the sun on her face. A haze of grief had been followin...

    The leaf, Like a bird, Leaves the nest, Leaves the tree, It jumps from safety, It falls to the ground, Slowly, Floating, Falling, Falling, Falling, It floats in the gentle breeze, Gliding to and fro with the wind, It stops, Not a sound is made, Not a head is turned, Or an animal scar...

    I walk outside and step onto the patio, The smooth concrete is cracked and broken, Between the gaps grow thorns and weeds of all kinds, Choking all the other plants as they stretch to the sky, But despite the coldness of the shattered pavement, Life blossoms, No matter how small, Tiny yellow ...

    If there is moonlight out, You will see all of the glimmering lake, The waves will lap over and around you, And the water and the light make a sweet harmony of their own, Some people cannot see it, But see it void and black, The few that see it, Perceive in it beauty and fascination, A...

    Her heart trembles with sadness, As they pull the strings of her heart out one by one, Unraveling her very soul, Her veins pulse with the agony of grief, Eyes sting in protest, Trying not to let the tears cascade down her face, Her lips quiver, Teeth sink in, All in attempt to hold back, ...
