    I recited a monologue about commitment, but not even a fuzzy black and white image could convince you otherwise. You stuffed all our grunning photographs in a dilapitated shoebox that I found stowed away in the back of a cluttered closet, faded memories of another time when happiness was not...

    I let the thief get away with his bag full of tricks and his hands full of still-beating hearts, stuck with sharp bleeding darts. I bid him farewell with a wave and a nod, I kept grinning like a cat with no problems at all. I planted rose drops between toes that were safe from the cold; he...

    It was the end of long days and short nights. No more sand between her toes or chlorine dips. The moonlight air was taking on a chilly bite, the fireflies didn’t want to light. The scents of cotton candy and popcorn drifted away with the country fair. Three months of unbridled pleasure; soon it wa...

    He proposed at the top of the Eiffel Tower while we were studying for a semester in France. College sweethearts you could say, the tight of the tight, the lovey-dovey of all love. Dad said the ring was the size of his head, too much for such a petite girl. You'd never see something like ...

    People who make art see the world through open eyes. They sip coffee from tiny white teacups, lap up lattes from Starbucks mugs. They live pennyless and uncertainly, attempting to sell their dreams upon the street. They dream of galleries and public speech, spectators gazing with awe and a ti...

    The stool wobbled beneath his heavy frame, Straining to hold him above the checkerboard tiles. Elvis was singing the blues from a corner of the room, I wondered if he could possibly be speaking to me. A glass was held firmly between my shaky hands, A chill against the fever that raged through m...

    Her eyes fluttered wildly as he trailed kisses down her throat. Entrance, she gave into him, her nightmare, her dream. Three years of pain mistaken for love, it fell from her mind in a cloud of dust. She wore badges of his so-called affection, that way she could never completely forget. His fingerna...

    You're the feeling that I can't escape, the hero in my dreams. You've carried me away from danger, you've shown me how to find the spring. You're my favorite drug, my heroin. My lover boy, my Edward Cullen. You've always been my everything. When I close my eyes you're all I see. My dream ca...

    I called your name, you weren't there to hear it. I reached out to touch you, but you weren't there to feel it. I cried tears of sorrow, you weren't there to wipe them away. I fell to the ground in pain, you weren't there to pick me back up. My hands were cold from winter winds, you weren't...

    Don't worry love, it won't last long. Your friends will see you as strong, not the weak little boy hiding behind his silly smirk. They'll see you as a man, when that's farthest from the truth. You hide your emotions well, you're the opposite of me. I cann attempt to hold it together but in...

    The flashlight was bright in her bloodshot eyes, her face pale and her skin wet and slimy. Her hair stuck to her and face, stringy and limp. 48 hours in the creek. He beat her and left her, bleeding and seeing the sky turn from black to blue and back to black again. She cried out a few time...

    She laughed, a dry, exhausted laugh. The mirror could tell her no lies, Not anymore. She slipped beneath the murky surface Of the water where she was bleeding dry. Flashbacks of her life, Memories she didn't want to find. Christmas Day when Dad didn't come home, Her lover that quickly slippe...

    Six months now, you've intrigued me, I'm lost with you. Once spoken to live and in person. So close I could taste your breath on my tongue. So hard to resist the temptation of pressing my lips to your's. I see you everyday in the institute of learning. Sometimes I feel invisible to your eyes,...

    There was no goodbye. No remorse lingering in his eyes. A silent smack, causing a heart to suddenly crack. A wavering whimper, nothing more to whisper. She didn't quite understand, what had happened to her caring man? When did his heart grow cold? When did she become so hard to hold? What ...

    A furious ball of energy in the hands of the queen of chaos. Like a miniature sun held in God's hands, what happens when it collides with our planet? Will we perish like all the dinosaurs when that meteor hit so long ago? Golden hair blows in wispy waves piercing eyes kill my soul. Black sha...

    Dear chaser of the stars, lover of my heart. This is my final day so listen carefully to what I say. You filled my days with your charming ways. How your hazel eyes would gaze deeply into mine. The way you smile, the way you laugh. I'd do your bidding if you'd only ask. The way your cool b...

    Like a devil in disguise, I let you into my life. What a big deal, what a surprise. Down one more drink, Take it slowly, no one seems to notice They think, what a mess, what a screw-up Just a girl, alone at the bar I ask, when, did it all, fall apart Why did I let you, steal away my heart ...

    His eyes ore a hole through her soul. Why was she doing this? He had never wronged her, never hurt her like those before. And yet here they stood. The night was chilly and she had a coat and scarf to keep her warm. He was wearing his usual jacket. He held her hands in his, rubbing his thumbs against...

    She took a quick glance behind her. His face stood out from the crowd like a dove among pigeons. He was so close. She turned her attention back to the boy beside her. Her focus should be entirely on him. But she found that task to be nearly impossible. After each turn, she saw his face. Damn it all ...

    I lied to you, she whispered. I never told you the whole story. Shadowy vines trail behind me, Strangling anyone who is in their path. When you got tangled up in my life, I knew there would be destruction. I let you in anyway, I took you down with me. I loved you from the start, he said. ...

    She danced, a magical dance of Feelings she thought she'd lost forever. A peace of mind and body, A lust for life that flowed through her. How could she have let them steal it away, Leave her to wander blind and astray. The sunlight filtered through lighter strands, A liquid blue to bore stra...

    Her crave to never be alone Was finally eased that day. The whole time she could look in his eyes, His face, his lips, so close to hers. A twisted tale of epic proportions, He held her close, The way she had missed being held. So long it had been, She was at it again. Willing and ready, Sh...

    A bolt, a shock She had always tried to avoid your lot A flow of tears you wouldn't stop. You turned to go, she finally broke. She pushed, she tugged Ready to do your every bidding. She lost, you loved Another over your scorned lover. She cried when you lied. All I could do was watch her d...
