    Quiet desperation fills the lungs, Of quaint songbirds, As they swiftly trod along their branches. Each with the majestic coats of royalty, Catching golden rays of the sun, Against the bleak background of a dense forest. Watching them dance so firvolously, Nature cues in a swift breeze A...

    I’m sitting in limbo, Patiently waiting for the storm to pass overhead So I can breathe once again They are waging a war Never ending and undefeatable Even with this knowledge I want it to end It’s a constant struggle Both with balanced power and determination And victory in their ...

    It swathed the table, inimitably speaking of his strength. The color was dark, black actually, like a midnight sky. Its power was absorbed into his flesh, digging deep into his pores finding its way to the veins that energized the flow. With a quick circulation the exchange, met and a swift journey ...

    I see her everyday in the park, by my house, on the way to church. She’s always there in her light blue faded dress. It’s filled with small, pearl lilacs. Though, you wouldn’t be able to notice that at a first glance, since the wash has taken all of its vibrant colors away. She wears a straw r...

    It’s the fact that I can’t tell you or the man with the green cloth sweater at Starbucks, or my second grade teacher or my mother or anyone else in the world; that traps me. It’s because I think that I hold my own secret, nestled in between my lungs and rib cage. While in reality, I know that ...

    It drips over me The significant pressure Of weights gently attaching to my skin The feeling is instant It passes and is felt again With another drip It’s a cool relaxation Just standing here Washing away all feelings of stress The sound drums into my brain Its rhythmic beating...

    Free the mind of thoughts No worries, contemplations, troubles Drain it all out Until all that is left is air. Soar into the sky Let the breeze carry you away Without direction Nor care. Gladden their hearts No dreary idea can exist Bring cheer from their souls Which beams onto the...

    I stood there motionless It’s a state of my own Familiar with and comfortable As the world, speeds up around me The sand found its way between my feet Searching for a flesh cave To call their own One that they may keep for awhile Smells of salt invaded my body And the aurora san...

    A yellow, plastic watering can Featured detailed indents For the fingers to feel Created a bee I picked it up ever so carefully Not wanting the dirt that clung onto the bottom To be attracted to the Cloth that surrounds me But the can got heavy My biceps relaxed And even against ...

    The autumnal wind embraced my sweater Swinging its sleeves around Slowly seeping through the hand knit threads A whisper into my soul The stony pavement, laid down before me Was worn with cracks and slants Fossils of boots and flip flops mimic my own Upon this grueling path The roa...

    The racecar sped away Slowed down next to us But was still a blur The driver raised his hand Sporting a watch worth 600 dollars Frayed nylon swayed with his wrist The goodyear emblem covered his face Stitched into his soul I couldn’t sense him through the advertisements Name’s Coca ...

    It contains the taint of hunger Spoiling the lunch We were ceased to munch The mold proliferated the next table It was a silent sound With crickets chirping Interrupted by burping But the laughter didn't last too long Our minds connected The idea poured into the cup We proceeded to p...

    I collapsed into the fallen snow That landed weeks ago Its surface rigid Protecting the soft blanket of the land Like a piece of chocolate, a creamy inside My limbs went to work Chipping away, into a mold Features mimicking mine A soft fingertip My own I rise from the snow ...

    In this novel about the constant conflict within a family, Louise Erdrich creates disconnected characters who seem confusing at first. The Kashpaw family may be emotionally and territorially detached, but they're still held together by the random relations and experiences of life. Love Medici...

    After a 10-year hiatus, ­Portishead is back with the release of “Third.” The band combines jazz, hip-hop, and experimental music to ­produce a unique sound. This album definitely is not their best, but that doesn’t stop me from loving it. Portishead picked up exactly where they left off ...

    I turned off the lights to my bed room Quickly ran into my bed And let the covers envelop my body. I closed my eyes and let my mind run wild. Sometimes I’m a panda While other times I fly. It all depends on my mood. But tonight when my body shut down for the night And my realities w...

    “Was that just a monkey?” James whispered to himself. He put his hands up in disbelief and carried a confused shock on his face. Cautiously he looked around his office looking for somebody to explain the monkey. He was a bit worried, since his office wasn’t crowded as usual. Wait ...

    The man fabricated a familiar facade As a fleeting farce of fame To be fathomable and fatuous to all Yet far away from the fantasy he adored But they favored his foremost, foreboding figure Due to a fateful faction of Fainéant and fallacy, From false fear derived A fateful fiend who ...

    The floorboards send an unnerving creak as she descends down the stairway. Her pupils have no focus, a dusty stare into void. The energy within, proceeds a fluidity that once been, and assists to provide function. The hinges break, wheels relocate, into a forward direction, but the muddied map is ha...

    These eyes seemed to be working against me. I forced them straight in order to stay focused but there were lashes attached to the back inside my skull and the worm decaying my insides was pulling them back of their surface, so I could see the grim splashed upon his cheeks. I fought it back, who woul...

    He stepped into the dreary room with choking smoke. The air filled his lungs which felt invigorating rather then sickly, like it used to. Something that only could develop with time; he had a lot of it on his hands now. Dressed in a smooth leather jacket, slick as ice, it covers his everyday cl...

    C’mon kiddo you can get it! It’s right over there. Angle yourself a bit more to the right, wait! What did I tell you? Steady those feet of yours. Let’s go back to the start again, you ready? Okay now, one foot over the other. Don’t become strangled and ties up in the white bl...

    Who would have thought that I’d be strutting down 12th and Broadway right now? I mean, yeah it’s not a walk in the park, as they would say but I’m doing it. It’s so tedious though. I have to pay attention to every single thing. Can’t let my guard down, no way. I can&rsq...
