    I couldn’t try on the dresses. Not with that image in the mirror being reflected back to me. Maybe in my room in Chicago, where the mirror has been safely tucked away in my closet for two years now. Maybe even in my room back at Pappy’s house, where I could turn around or close my eyes. But not ...

    Dear God, Why do I have mental breakdowns before I shower? Why do I turn the water on full blast, And collapse onto my blue and white mat, And look at myself in the mirror Thinking how ugly I look when I cry? Why do I depend on people to get me through the day? Why can’t I wake up knowing t...

    Rumor has it she’s pregnant. She had too many cupcakes. Rumor has it she’s anorexic. She’s been trying to gain weight all her life. Rumor has it she’s bulimic. She had bad sushi. Rumor has it she’s a whore. She hasn’t had her first kiss. Rumor has it she’s dumb. S...

    It’s so much easier to call a guy an asshole, than it is to admit that he’s out of your league. It’s so much easier to call a girl a fake b****, than it is to admit that you secretly wish you were best friends. It’s easier to blame it on the teacher, to say that he hates you, than to admit t...

    It’s like buying a brush, Making your hair all silky smooth. And then once the tangles are all out, You throw the brush away; no longer needed. It’s like borrowing a sharpened pencil To make your lines nice and straight. And then when you’ve finished your sentence, You put it back in ...

    I want to jump. I want to finally escape From this unbreakable bubble That is my life. I want to venture out at last. I will bungee jump. I will sky dive. But you're there. You're right there in the plane. You tell me not to jump, You tell me to stay in the plane. You're no...

    Recovery: The regaining of, or possibility of, Regaining something lost. Disastrous. First by land, Then by water. Lost lives, lost homes, lost families, Lost hope. Death hovered above in a cloud, It threatened its power and foreshadowed its damage. And then death rained. It rained and p...

    Pull me, Pull me through this obstacle course. I’ll clutch the sides, You’ll fold your fingers into the handle. I’ll feel my heart rise, Like a bird chirping in the morning, Like the laughter of a newborn, Like a family being together. Don’t groan, Don’t groan at how heavy I am, ...

    Crooked limbs, Broken at the seams. Unable to fix, Unable to repair, Unable to forgive. Wounded too far deep Too far deep into the core Of nothingness. Splashes of color Here and there, But only to mask the huge pit of Black. The black that surrounds the sin, That envelops the world, ...

    “Don’t tell anyone,” you begged. “Please.” I sensed your warm breath on my neck, as if we were both still lying on my bed. I felt your words consume me, as if you remained curled up next to me, playing with my long, twisted hair. I reacted to your voice, as if things weren’t different...

    I used to think that these high school years were pointless, besides being the stepping stone to living in the real world. Endless hours of school work, rallies, writing for the school newspaper: by the second month of freshman year it all became routine. On the exterior, everything appeared to be...

    Interfaith marriages are prominent throughout the world, whether it is a Christian/Jewish marriage, a Buddhist/Hindu marriage, or any other blend of two different faiths. In an interfaith marriage, divergent religions join together and create a family; both parents put in their doses of what they gr...

    I should have known better. You’d think that after seeing it So many times And telling myself it wouldn’t happen To me, I’d be careful. I’d know when to turn tail I wouldn’t abandon what my head tells me not to do, And instead listen to my heart. I should have been prepared for th...

    These days, it is hard to find a book in the teen section of a bookstore that is not about vampires, werewolves, or other immortal creatures. But for faithful believers in the book industry, persistence paid off. Vixen, by Jillian Larkin, does not follow this overused mystical formula. Instead, it s...

    I sense your presence beside me. I embrace your warm breath circling my body, questioning it. You quiz me. It’s a test I have to pass. I feel your uncertainty. I prepare myself for the question, this question everyone wonders, and you stand there, unsure of the answer. It’s so simp...

    Just leave me in the dark. Walk through the alley, Become so small I could squish you with my fingers. Give me one last look, But don’t look me in the eye. Stare at my nose, Or my chin, Or my eyebrows. If you were to look me in the eye, I’d think you actually cared. How dare I think ...

    While strolling downtown, passerbys notice the many fashion displays in store windows. A mannequin is wearing a salmon-colored ruffled tank top with a high-waisted floral skirt. Another is wearing an oversized T-shirt with ankle-length leggings. A long necklace complements the shirt, along with a la...

    The sun poured through the air, casting its rays on my tanning skin. I tilted my head up toward the cloudless, sapphire sky, hearing the hustling waves swim to the shore and slowly trickle back. Children built sand castles and splashed in the waves, squealing when the unfamiliar water temperature fr...

    Why is it In books and movies That no matter the problem Nothing seems As bad As real life? Why do I even Watch movies Or read books When it’s such a fable In comparison To real life? How do I Let myself Go into such a Different world Where everything Just seems better? ...

    How can the world be so big, Yet I feel so small? How can there be so many people, Yet I feel so alone? How can so many people say they love me, Yet I feel so far from it? How can everyone live on the same planet, Yet I feel I’m in a different universe? How can I seem so happy, Ye...

    Stop. Stay away from me. No. I don't want you. Don't. This won't happen. Shoot. Take the picture. Or shoot. At my heart. What does it matter? If they're both angled at the same place? Love sinks to the bottom of the ocean. Love doesn't exist...a...

    What is the difference? The traits that separate you from me? It doesn’t make any sense The kind of friends we’re set to be. I look out the window The sun brightens the street. You look out the window And it’s a place to put your feet. Everything is black, No colors such as pink o...

    Many things I’ve seen Friendships go amiss But when they really mean, It’s when the angels give a kiss. I saw it go sour From sweet to tart I’ve seen it from a tower And felt it from my heart. But you’re a cupcake Sweet to the core Do whatever it takes Give a little more. I...

    I stand hands in fists nails digging into skin teeth gritted Inhaling, but not having the strength the will the power to exhale. Can't let out emotions that way I can't breathe. Can't move to cover my eyes Shield my insides from the world. Can't move to ...

    Sometimes I just run Without looking back Until I wonder How big a dent I made And I ask myself If it’s worth going back And repair it How much damage it would be Or if I should just Keep running Never return Keep breathing Never live Eventually disappear Into the distance....
