    You said forever, but it only lasted a few, frantic heartbeats. Then you left, and whisked the love out of my lungs in a single gust of remorse. You said forever, I wished it, too....

    Yesterday we were, of that I am sure. Today we are, as real as that star. Tomorrow we won't try to flee....

    Is a lifetime measured in sighs? If it is, I have lived a million years. Is a lifetime measured in love? If it is, I have lived a few short moments. Is a lifetime measured in broken promises? If it is, I have lived so incredibly long. Is a lifetime measured in happiness? If it is...

    Your charming smile, winning winks, I detest them. Your casual swagger, easy chatter, I detest it. Cause underneath all that, you're a big ego and nothing else. Cause underneath all that, it's all about you, your entertainment. You fool me into liking you, then I catch a g...

    I sense you are avoiding me, That, honey, just breaks me heart. You don't know me, So how, How can you already judge? I sense you are ignoring me, That, old friend, just pains me chest. You don't stand me, So how, How can you say hello? I sense you are using me, That, jerk, ...

    Today, you made my heart spin caught in a whirlwind of emotions. Today, you made me smile for the first time in a while. Today, you gave me a hope tinted with sadness and love. Today, you made me laugh light as the feathers of your hair. Today, you made me notice the stunni...

    I don't have any stunning beauty. I don't sound like a teenage girl. I don't dress to the latest fashions. I don't dream all about boys. I don't want to be Miss Popular. I don't say 'like' every other word. I do have an open mind. I...

    As you sit there curled up on the floor, I see the loneliness caressing you, I see it beat you till you're sore. As you walk around the empty room, I see the loneliness sneering at you, I see it surround you in a tent of gloom. As you cry yourself to sleep, I see the loneliness saunt...

    It's is begging me, the beautiful sea, to dive in and live. Take me Poseidon, I want to swim in your kingdom. It's calling me, the mysterious sea, to come closer now. Take me Poseidon, I want to breathe in your kingdom. It's pulling me, the powerful sea, my feet hate...

    The glass of orange juice is cold in my hand, and I can imagine how it will feel when it slides down my dry throat. Yet I don't drink. All I do is stare out the window into the cold morning and wonder what the heck life’s about. My mother walks into the kitchen, gently ruffles my head, and h...

    Let me hold out a hand, so you can see there is still hope. Let me hold out a hand, so that I can help you learn to cope. I've stood by and watched as your soul was repeatedly tested. I've stood by and watched as you became once again hunted. I held you when your body was cold...

    You and I, we were the kings and queens of the future. We held the promises of our people, held them tight in our grasp. You and I, we were the heroes and sidekicks of the stories. We fought the villains set them running, fought them again, day after day. That's what we were. ...

    I wanna be a paper plane. I wanna fly and barely scrape the sky. I wanna be a paper plane. I wanna soar and then hit the floor. I wanna be a paper plane. I wanna fall and crumple into a ball. I wanna be a paper plane. I wanna unfold and break the mold. I wanna be a paper plane. ...

    I look at myself, at the outer layer. That's all my eyes can see. They can't pierce through the tough skin and see what's in my heart. They can't see what's inside of me. My thoughts, my dreams my reality. All they see is skin, a face, another countless body. ...

    Through the looking glass lie my most prized fantasies. They taunt me from the other side, blossoming without me. Through the looking glass I see the future I desire. Things I will never acquire, haunting me forever. Through the looking glass, I see myself, yet not me. I am whole, not ...

    I have encountered a writer's wall. It's tall and blank and very ordinary. It's also strong, sturdy, and I don't know how to bring it down. It looms up to the sky, blocks my view from the land of inspiration. There is no way around. Made of bricks of the finest proc...

    Life is like a car ride, a trek across the land. It will take you places you've never seen and make you gasp with awe. Life is like a car ride, with endless bends in the road. Take an unexpected turn, and you're on a different path, another direction. Life is like a car ride,...

    The crickets chirp, a summer lullaby. The stars wink, little trinkets of light. I'm sitting on the roof. Looking out into the night. Looking out into life. The days are getting longer, the nights quite shorter. Insomnia gives me the joy of being lonely tonight. The last lights blin...

    If you're up there, please listen. If you're down there, don't bother. I already know where I'll go. If you're listening, open your ears a bit more cause I got a lot to say. These words are not easy, trust me, they don't want to come out. They stick like sap...

    There's a stranger in the mirror. She looks at me, seems to sigh. Eyes that seem to have given up. Pale skin that will break and let a river of sadness gush masochistically out. Do I know her? Is this me? It can't be; I am not this dark. Not that hopeless, God-forgotten. ...

    His words are soft and velvety, caressing her cheek. They dance daintly before entering her ears. Her lips play a smile her eyes sparkle and shine. and forever this moment peach fuzz. The sigh of a warm breeze as it says its goodbyes before leaving the stage at the end of the act of sum...

    If I am meant to die tomorrow, So be it. If you can't come to my funeral, So be it. If it rains, and you get wet, So be it. If no one cries, if there are no red eyes, So be it. Because when I'm gone, I'm gone. One thing's sure as the sunrise, I won't be looking ...

    Free me from these chains. Release me from my cage. Open the door to freedom. I need to wash the window of my face. I need to show people what it really looks like. Three words. Gotta. Be. Me. A constant beat I dance to. Me, me me. I want to be me. Who is that? I'm not sure my...

    We got socks on our toes, freckles on your nose. Tears in an eye, for that boy that made you cry. We are the girls with socks that match everyday no matter the weather no matter the mood. We are the girls with socks that match everyday no matter the time no matter the date. We got ...

    It's no use to lie to me. I know you well enough to see the truth in your eyes. It's no use to smile at me. I know you well enough to tell when you're in pain. It's no use to stick around. I know you well enough when you are no longer interested. So it's no use ...
