    There was once this little girl who had lost her will to fly. The sky beckoned behind the clouds, "Come to me. Come to me," with their soft melody. This little girl looked to the heavens, lost from her world, desire of belonging filling her up. The sun peaked through the clouds, only to di...

    The sound of piano, Fills up the inside, Of a soul, Long forgotten at sea. Waves do not crash, Upon the bow. The wind does not Puff the sails. The same two keys, Play for eternity, The same old tune, Monotonous it goes. So many added chords, Lost to frustration, Eerie and silent,...

    What could there be, Beyond biscuits and tea? Are we so ordinary? So lost in the flow, That the waves have crushed us, Sucked us beneath, Taken our air, Our will to breathe? Are we lost without faith? Do we long for stability? Is there a way to lie, Without dying inside? What does our fu...

    There was a room filled with empty chairs. They were ornate and finely polished, old and withering. Golden light filtered from brass and white shade lamps. A wood fire musk traveled through the room. There was no shortage of homey feeling even as the encroaching darkness of night attempted to seep i...

    Today is the day. It’s the day I die. The day I survive. The day I jump off a bridge. The day I meet the next step in my life. Today is the day. The day I find something new, destroy what has become me. The day I run from my past, and from my future. Today is the day, my whole life becomes worthwh...

    I could say I believed in a lot of things; words, emotions and actions. I could limit my thinking to a single one or expand it to such a level that I encompass the priorities of my life. It would be the challenge to come up with something new. A conformity that I know I don’t believe in. What ...

    At some point we all want to disappear. We want to disappear from a moment, a crowd of people, the darkness of our own gaze. It is within all of us, this urge to flee. This urge to fade away and never look back. We all want to run somewhere, to be forgotten but there are very few of us who can becom...

    I have always warn a mask and been able to lie. I’ve always been good at it. But now I’m starting to believe I’m a terrible actor on this world stage. The reason I think I’m so talented is really because no one cares enough to take the mask off and help me. They all expect me to have the str...

    Once upon a time, A little girl fell, Like a shooting star, Falling from heaven, Lighting up the sky, As she streaked by. The little angel, Had lost her belief, Her will to hope, The air she breathed. She fell from grace, A lost little soul, Alone amongst the clouds, Crashing to Ear...

    Some day you will fly. It will be glorious and beautiful. The past will haunt you. It will wrap it's tentacles around your ankles, And drag you down. But you will fly one day. You will trek the painful peaks, The sorrowful streams, The desolate deserts, The bleeding beaches. All...

    I passed someone walking in my shoes today, the same short gray boots, jeans tucked in. Couldn’t help but notice who was she was; the perfect girl. Blond hair, proportioned body, pretty and all of the above. I almost watched her go. I almost turned to see her leave but I couldn’t because I had s...

    I wish I could say all the right things. I wish I could speak to your heart, make it heal with just a few hymns, but I’m not magic, I’m just an illusionist. I’m just an ordinary friend who in this world wants your tears to be from laughter, your smile to be genuine and your voice to squeak wit...

    It’s listening to a piece of music that makes your breath catch. You’re engulfed by the beauty, the rise and fall, the lilting sway of the figures surrounding the lone light spreading like butter across the keys. It’s every moment heightened to the point where you feel with the notes. You feel...

    Somewhere along this thin line, there is someone who is always there. I can wake them up at night. I can share the darkest of secrets. I can make a fool of myself. I can laugh until I cry and cry until there are no tears left. I will always be seen. I will always be heard. I will always know that I ...

    It’s one of those moments where the language barrier isn’t that of Chinese versus English but of being a trusted friend and being on the outside. I get to watch the conversations happen without knowing what is being said. It’s a special gift I have, this being on the outside. I should be used ...

    Let the earth fall into brightness, And cleanse the world of its fear. Recognize that they have been saved, And allow them the hope that the day, Will never come, When darkness threaten them. Let them rest in sweet felicity, Beneath brightened skies of moon and stars....

    Somewhere along the line, we all go crazy. Whether with love, anguish or anger. We all cross the path, teeter on the beam and fall. We all have that chance to pull ourselves up, To save our minds from the encroaching darkness, That wriggles with worms of insanity, Ready and waiting to creep...

    I would always remember what sunburn felt like in 80% humidity. Moisture stuck to your skin mixing with the sweat. It made me feel like I was swathed in wet flannel pajamas. My skin itched to a burn, a slow heartburn normally reserved for the back of your throat after a hearty hamburger from your fa...

    At this moment the world is yours. You are free.There is no pain.There is no sorrow. There is only you, floating on a cloud. Fly fast, over landscapes untraveled. The world is yours for the moment. Steal the light that shines at your horizon, Grip the tail of a comet, Lose yourself to rhythm....

    They were the lucky ones, Born out of tragedy, Managed by the darkness, Forgotten by the sun. They were lost to the cosmos, Misplaced by the chosen few, Absent from the story line, Omitted from precise minds. They were the lucky ones, That fate had forgotten, Left to survive, While t...

    I want to be the someone. Not a second choice. Not an if your free. I want to be an anyway friend. Not a pet project. Not a forgive me please. I want to be the one, Not an after thought. Not a lunch mate. I want to be that friend, Not an embarrassment. Not a one time only. I want to be o...

    Do not stand at my step and weep, I am not there, I did not keep. I am the traveling wind that goes, I am the straight shot arrows. I am the sunset painted sky, I am the loosened necktie. I am the sweeping silence of night, I am the graceless jag of fright Of lightning strikes illuminating t...

    One day you’ll see, That this doesn’t matter. That the world isn’t set in stone, That you can pave your own way home. One day you’ll see, That you’re not alone. That people aren’t invisible, That someone sees you for what you are. One day you’ll see, That the world isn’...

    There was a lonely cloud, That flitted in the sky, Drifting by itself, Against the bright blue background. I watched the cloud, Admiring its sun kissed beauty, As it slowly dissolved. It shifted and twirled, Something different With every glance, And I wondered, Just briefly, What it wa...
