    Why must we do this, fall in love, With everyone we meet? Knowing we must let go of The ones we will mistreat, And treatment is a fickle thing, For even if we try To treat our lover like a king, The ending is goodbye. Understand that fairy tales Are meant to stay just that. Hold my hand, s...

    Muddy footprints cross the floor, Heading to the open door. Wonderment will lead to war. All the things we do abhor, But somehow, find room to adore. No one here to answer for The children we’ve learned to ignore. “Always try to look for more,” You tell me, and I ask, “What for?”...

    Trying to be lonely Is the harder thing to do. Knowing that, if only, We could live this world in two. Travelling with nobody Down this path of solitude. Without loving, it’s so lovely… Oh, our problems we allude...

    If the sky is the sea, Turn it upside down, And the rain from above Shatters all around. Every droplet would taste Of the tears that we waste. With the clouds from above As the ocean’s waves, We could splash all around Every word we gave, And the salty sea air We would breathe with grea...

    Hello, Boy with the long brown hair With a little scar and a birthmark there, Couldn’t help but meet your stare, Seeming oh so debonair. Now we tread on cautious feet Out the back so we can meet Somewhere slightly down the street, Evening air so bittersweet. Though the evening’s voic...

    Drip, drop, Rain nonstop, Heart goes flop, Coffee shop. Boom, boom, Lightning blooms, Love resume, Clear the room. Tick, tock, Goes the clock, Interlock, Start small talk. Greet, greet, Shuffling feet, Eyes will meet, My complete. Laugh, laugh, My behalf, Heart’s riff-raff, Othe...

    Here’s to you, flavored chapstick. Here’s to old Disney movies and Rugrats reruns. To that favorite pair of flip-flops so worn down that your heels brush the ground. To guitar finger-callouses, to every last freckle. To dusty old books as well as new ones, when the pages smell like rubber. To pu...

    Unleash the night upon the sky So I can call the moon. If you can leash the star above, If you can heal encumbered love, Complete the thoughts I’m thinking of And I’ll fall for you, too, Under the sapphire stars we wait For one to streak the sky. I know your wish, You know my wish, So ...

    A cast can heal a broken arm, And tape can heal a toe. If chocolate mends a broken heart, Why does it not beat so?...

    Now, if the world were only a thing, I could understand it, too. Perhaps the world and all its things Are truly sent askew, And if a penny can’t buy luck, A cent is meant for none. But since the world has gone amok, I’m up for anyone. Though love has lost its lustrous shine, There remai...

    You’re never too old for a hot cup of cocoa. You’re never too old to fill a cup full of tears. You’re never too old to watch a Disney movie, Memorizing those movies year after year. You’re never too young to admit you’re sorry. You’re never too young to wiggle your toes. You’re...

    The second that you say Any word, my dear, You chase away my pain and fury, My sadness and my fear. The second that you say Hello, hi, or hey, Just that simple greeting Makes me act cliché. But the second that you say goodbye, A tear appears within my eye Mascara I must reapply My kn...

    There’s something about Walking with my eyes closed. I sense the every crack Through my shoes to my toes. Not watching, not gazing Just listening and waiting. Waiting for the beginning of straying. Hope I won’t fall or Wander to the street, Depending on rubber soles Adorning my feet. ...

    They tell me what you tell them. They tell me what they promised not to. I never tell what I promise not to. You didn’t tell me when you promised you always would. You didn’t tell me what you told them. They told me what you told them. That hurts. I’m reconsidering. Telling them w...

    How you yearned to fly, Wings spreading each day… Every day you watched the sky Change from blue to grey. No matter the impending weather, The silky mist would shroud. As the tips of your feathers, Brushed upon each cloud. You flew to my window yesterday, Chirped beautiful songs to me, ...

    I don’t talk to boys much. I really wish I could, because hello! Girls are dramatic as hell, and it wouldn’t hurt to have a few guy friends. But, of course, I try getting close with a guy and one of two things happen. A, he ends up liking me. B, I end up liking him. Sucks, right? Maybe it’s...

    I think I’m pretty. I’m not being conceited, just honest. I think I’m pretty, and people tell me I am, too. Though being modest is an immediate reaction, I try my best never to reject the idea. Self-confidence, that’s all. Things got bad for a while. I got terrible acne, braces, bad haircu...

    Bending wooden shelves, Curving where they’re weak, Installing more support into the wood that seems so meek. Call me a collector, A foolish one, at that, For these things take up space, and roominess is where it’s at. I may be a nerd Pushing glasses up my nose, But I don’t need t...

    I was so young then. Too young to be subjected into a world where everyone had to act grown-up. Not to say that my childhood was taken the day my dad sat Brittnie and I in the living room and told us the news. I actually don’t remember the day, not quite. All I can recall is that I was confused, ...

    Stereotypes sicken me, not because they’re used against others, but because they’re commonly true. No, I’m not insisting that all of the hideous things said about other races are true. Skin color shouldn’t be a factor within judgment. However, I’m speaking of the high school stereotypes: c...

    A house of cards, A wobbling house of spades. We lived in that house, Lived off what we had made. Slept on dirt floors, Tired of our happy charade, Lifted up shovels, Reverie to our someday-upgrade, Made the grounds shiver, Made a living off a tottering grenade. A house of cards, A shim...

    They say not to judge a book by its cover, yet that’s exactly what I did when I first laid my eyes on Last Chance For Paris by Sylvia Mcnicoll. It’s a beautiful cover that explains most of the story in one picture: the woods, a river, flip flops, and a small strawberry tattoo. I was immediately ...

    It’s a rare thing to come across a book where the ending isn’t perfect. That’s why I was shocked, and a bit disappointed, by She’s So Dead To Us by Kieran Scott. We all grow up on the idea of happily forever after. A book that can successfully achieve the reality of life, without sugar coa...
