    Dear You, I remember you so clearly in my mind, hunched over the breakfast table doing the crossword puzzle. I loved the way your brow furrowed when you were thinking hard. Your face lit up like a light bulb when you figured the answer out. Sometimes, I remember sitting there, hardly touchin...

    “I don't want to be a writer anymore!” I shouted. The outburst was triggered by an argument that I had been having with my father. It was one we had had several times before, but the message never seemed to get through to him, or anyone else. “What do you mean you don't want to be...

    I watched my older sister throw her long, messy brown hair into an even messier pony tail before she stuck her Rockies baseball hat onto her head in the same backwards manner she always did. She wore an old hand-me-down, baggy black Wild Oats shirt that I’m sure she received from one of our brothe...

    “Goddammit Becca!” Anson shouted from the laundry room. “What did I do this time?” Rebecca groaned when Anson stormed into the kitchen where she was eating her favorite cereal. Upstairs, they heard Damien slamming his door shut and trudging down the hallway. Secretly, Rebecca hoped Anson...

    She couldn't help the tears that streamed from her deep violet eyes. She only loved one person in the entire world and he was lying in the bed next to her. She glanced over at him, but his eyes were closed. She wanted so much to see his gorgeous, grassy green eyes, but she couldn't. She...

    The piercing ring of the telephone jolted me awake from a particularly frightening nightmare involving my wife and our newborn child. Fumbling in the darkness, I snatched the receiver from its hook and held it to my ear while I slid out from underneath my blankets. No need waking Mya if it was just ...

    We come from all over to see it. The majestic lights that rise like mist from the top of the lake. We all want it to be the cure for some problem or another. The couple next to me has come here hoping to save their marriage. They’re hugging and kissing like they just remembered that they love each...

    Soldiers tramp stiffly through the sandy desert, awaiting the command to slaughter. Women run, and children cry, while men step forward as defenders. They would rather die than surrender. The commander orders their bloodbath, ensuring many will not survive Uncle Sam’s wrath. C...

    Amanda Lawson lay fast asleep in her comfortable Sleep Number bed on the morning of her twenty first birthday. She had spent almost the entire previous night drinking and partying, before crawling back to the expensive house given to her by her wealthy parents. She took a deep satisfied breath as...

    I heard my little sister calling my name, but I tried to ignore her. Every time I associated with her, I somehow ended up in trouble because of a mess she created. “Please can I come with you?” she pleaded glaring at me with her stormy eyes. Her tangled mess of raven hair blew in the warm sum...

    With each concrete square quickly passing by I felt my stomach drop even more, sinking like the infamous Titanic. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted that sidewalk to take me back. I felt lightheaded, butterflies invading my stomach of steel. I hadn’t felt this sensation since I was a b...

    She gripped his weathered, wrinkled hand tightly – or as tight as her weak fingers would allow her. She wanted to hold onto him for as long as she possibly could. Her labored breathing came out in short gasps as another wave of pain washed over her. The old woman looked deep into his milky green e...

    Opaqueness. It was everywhere, like an impenetrable, inky blanket. No light. No sound. Nothing. It felt like he was in a deep pit. Hell maybe? Was this hell? He tried to feel his body. He began with his toes, but it was as if he wasn't a physical being at all. He tried to feel, something, anyth...

    The two faces were lit up by the full moon on that clear summer night. A girl about seven, and a boy about sixteen. Their skin was covered in dirt and their clothes were ripped and torn. Wanderers, that's what the other kids in the town called them. They wandered in the summer time and stayed w...

    The child gazed into the forest. Trees were slowly losing their lovely healthy ways and beginning to look extremely sick. Their leaves had begun to turn from the beautiful emerald green to a dark brownish gray. Animals were slowly changing from their customary rambunctious nature. They were gr...

    Dark shadows danced across the dank walls. Smoke snaked through the thick, damp air. The Marijuana just barely camouflaged the rank smell of black mold that covered the basement. The man leaned his head against the wall, where the mold hadn't yet taken over. He closed his eyes tightly and drift...

    He gently lifted the lid from Tyson's favorite water bottle. He gazed intensely into the valley below him. Unscrewing the plastic top of the dented, metal bottle, he felt a sense of finality as he tipped the bottle, allowing the wind to hijack the contents and spread them across the small valle...

    She trembled as she ran her fingers across the glassy ivory keys. You ever heard of the saying, the calm before the storm? It was during the few precious moments of calm when Mika would run to her piano. It was actually Marcus' but he never minded. In fact, he was the sole reason she even began...

    Following the shadowy figure ahead. He made swift, rapid hand motions as if he was speaking quickly and angrily. She couldn't seem to hear his voice. The man appeared to be far off, almost like a distant memory. His head turned to look at her, but she could barely make out the contours of his f...

    Her thin frame shook as she coughed violently, causing her deep brown eyes to flutter open. Her skin was feverish and dripping with sweat. Nightmares plagued her dreams. It was the fourth time that night that she'd woken up her heart pounding and her fever raging. The small child reached her ha...

    LOVE NEVER DIES “Help me!” The cry was strangled and small, but she heard it none the less. She glanced toward the ocean where she could see a small amount of thrashing and splashing in the water, not too far from where she stood. The woman looked around nervously for the lifeguard who was su...

    As I stood in the shower, cold water pounding on my head and snaking down my bare skin in clear ribbons, forgotten memories plagued my mind. A wry smile played on my lips as I recalled the memories fondly. I barely even noticed when shampoo began to run into my eyes, causing them to sting slightly, ...

    The shrill scream echoed through the silent house. It was the same almost every night. Except tonight. Tonight seemed different. There was more fear. It seemed almost strangled. Down the narrow hallway and to the left six boys groaned. Each of them pulled their pillows over their heads. “Ira!...
