    Hearts, in the lap of luxury fall, Diamonds, the power to conquer all; Clubs, for diligence and industry, Spades, for wisdom and humility. An Ace for the knowledge of many a man, A King, the leader of the land; A Queen, for charms and poise and grace, A Knave, hotheaded, needs his space. ...

    Do you remember Cinderella’s flight? Do you remember the prince who stole her heart that night? Yes, I do. Yes, yes, I do. It’s the girl who always trips me up. Is she the same? Will she never change? Is she still in love? Did she find someone to dream about? Or does her heart flit ...

    You taught me how to learn. You taught me to fight for everything. You taught me that no one would ever stand in my way. You watched as I broke my sound barrier. You watched as I broke my own records. You watched as I broke my bones so that every day, I could improve, So that every day, I co...

    In the highly modernized and taxing culture of society today, many young persons may feel the social strains of living up to a certain standard to fit in. One of the biggest offenders of pressuring American youth in this way is the classroom environment. At some point in everyone’s life, they w...

    When I was younger, religion was a word with a definition. God was a superlative man with a face. And the words of the prophets were always placed between even, black quotation marks. Growing up in a strictly Christian family, one would assume that I would hold the religious beliefs of my siblin...

    I don’t pretend I never loved you. I admit, I thought you were my everything. But I pretend not to be hurt When you don’t answer my questions, The questions you would have yearned for. When you don’t smile back at me, Those smiles which were your safety. When you can’t talk to me, B...

    I am a tightrope walker. I only see reality if I look down. But I don't. I can't. If I do, I am ruined. I will stumble, Tumble, I will fall. The fall is long and the landing, Uncomfortable. I will collide with pointed steeples of reality And stare gargoyles of misstrust in the e...

    That’s life, C’est la vie, My friend, Mon amie. As your heart cracks in two And dissolves in the city smog And what’s left of the mascara Running down your pallid cheeks. You sit down on the sidewalk, Rock back and forth on your heels, Thinking no one sees behind you tears, It’s m...

    You say look at the sky, don’t you ever wanna fly away But wouldn’t you rather stay on the ground Might have trouble when you come down Fly away, fly, fly with me Come over the treetops, please try to see Don’t you wanna be foot loose and free? Come on, fly away with me You always ...

    I haven’t got a key to the pearly gates But Peter neither did she. So a halo don’t flicker around my ears And drops of silver aren’t my tears, But can’t you see A girl who’s beggin’ on her knees What happens up here? In this holy stratosphere? So tell me Peter, is she reall...

    They say he never loved me, My gallant captain of old. He only cared for tall ships And the stories of battles he told. The waves were his constant mistresses, A thing I’d never be, And he walked across the deck more times Than he walked his hands on me. So if my hair could be his sail, ...

    I can’t remember what we were It seems so long ago. But I remember what you said It still rings in my head. The stars were shinning The night was still But the moonshine bright Was somehow tucked away, out of sight You took my hand, little did I know It would be for the last time An...

    Life’s not a house of cards Friendships are to keep and guard. Sometimes it’s funny when you blow them down But it’s not funny when they blow you around. Life’s not some horse race Skipping the hurdles to win the steeplechase. You won’t always like what you get The stakes are high...

    I sit timidly in my desk, enveloped by my blue, zippered sweatshirt, which holds me back from sinking into the great divide between those wearing Abercrombie and those poor souls wearing anything else. I am discretely listening to a mass of girls from my class blabbering on about God knows what. ...

    Sitting nestled in a beach chair between snow and sand, the seasons battle for control of the serene Rhode Island beach while I act like a helpless referee, holding my camera, waiting for something worth lionizing to happen. The grit and the ice continue to fight at my feet, but the sand is graduall...
