    The concept of high school beginning today just had not processed in my mind yet. My heart was still with the pleasures of summer: sleeping in until 10:00 in the morning, watching fireflies in the night air burn like embers and fly, dipping my toes in the warm sand as the sea sparkled and ebbed in a...

    Cinder puddle droplets Flurry around me, Wind and souls howling Holding me Is remembrance of you Love’s history, My memories, They speak with me They laugh with me, They scream with me, They cry with me, yeah A smile to the ears A dance at school A kiss on the cheek A ride on th...

    In all of my 5,582 days of life and breath, I have never felt the touch of another’s lips pressed onto my own. I have never flushed, embarrassed, because my hands were burning and coated with a layer of sweat beads. I have never sensed the swell of my heart as if it is preparing to detonate. I hav...

    So much depends Upon Triangles stained on Fabric Flashing salmon pink Like Radars for those Disliked Or for those Proud It flips back and forth Upside down To the other way around Negative patches to positive flags Waving Blowing Glowing To those discriminated To those dignified ...

    So much depends Upon Blue rivulets of Life Streams coursing through Flesh Beneath the thick Layers A warm hug underneath Heat waves stretching Across silhouettes Fueling minds Fueling hearts Channels that beat That speed That drain life Of lifelessness Until a soul’s shell break...

    So much depends Upon A hazy sickly Miasma Wisps of smoke Coil Overtop every smothering Cloud Pinched, addictive cinders Smolder The flavor, the beat The scent, the thought They crave it With false reliance Slowly, the fuming ribbons Pervade the vital Doors and passages And burn ...

    I lay my hand on the glass. It is ice against my skin at first touch, chewing away the last bits of warmth beneath my flesh. As mere seconds pass though, I feel the heat of the barricaded tropic water seeping through the glass. “Look, Mum!” A tiny voice squeaks from behind me. I twist my head...

    The embers had fluttered in the smoky air around us, like large fireflies on warm, mid-summer evening. The smoke had ascended to the orangey abyss above, roasting it to a blackened, charred gulf. The fire had danced across the mirror of his eyes, the sangria streaked blaze blending in with the l...

    By the way my heart had throbbed behind my chest, as if it would shatter my ribs, by the way my face had heated, as if my skin would melt away, by the way my flesh grew taut, as if it would rip by one movement, I knew I would never forget September 11, 2001. It had just happened so fast. A blindi...

    Even as seconds, hours, days, years slip away, I still remember him. I still remember to unmake both sides of the bed. I still remember to leave the newspaper on the kitchen table. I still remember how he stroked his hair back incessantly. I still remember how I thought that if he did it too much,...

    Most have heard the trials where parents and their kids sue fast food corporations like Burger King and McDonalds after becoming obese.

    Wind skated across the lake's murky surface, mist flying. Wind chimes banged into one another, an inharmonic chorus of bells and whistles. The scent of mildew lingered in the atmosphere. The mid-morning sun leaked through the tall, fern green trees where the warm ribbons of light danced through...

    Your physical presence lingers Your mind is across the map Inches separate us from my desires Miles separate us from yours You dance in my dreams So seductive I’m hidden in your memories So concealed We used to laugh We used to dance We used to kiss We used to talk What happened to t...

    Rain showered over the city, water pelting the taxi’s window. I stared out the window, filmed over with fingerprints and trickling water droplets that resembled tears rolling down a cheek. The metropolis was distorted through the glass, scarlet red, lime green and amber yellow lights streaking acr...
