    Thinking of the night you were broken and I was there when nothing else mattered but the fact that we weren’t going to sleep and we weren’t going to think. When I opened up to you like I’d never opened up to anyone before. And then, the next morning, the magic spell broke and it ...

    Writing this essay was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do. It’s not hard because I’m a bad writer, or I struggle with English class, or I don’t have a topic to write about. This is hard because I’m not sure how to open up to people about one of the most personal aspects o...

    She stares back at me, Tauntingly. She challenges me with her glare. She screams at me. Ugly. Stupid. Pathetic. Worthless. Broken. Scarred. Beaten. Alone. And I believe her. Every word. Every fear is like a thousand knives. Though the ones I use are sharper. The wounds I inflict are ...

    And what's one more goodbye? One more distasteful cut across her wrists? One more judgment? One more fall? They all knew it was coming. Waiting just around the corner. She was stupid to believe the lies she whispered to herself. Stupid to believe in hope. This is a lesson she's lea...

    “He looks like he just escaped from prison.” That was my little sister’s first impression of Samuel Billin. For those who do not know him well, Sam can seem frightening and serious at first. But if you take the time to get to know him on a more personal level, you will quickly realize that ben...

    Silent on the outside But inside I’m screaming. Held together with this smile A ribbon slowly coming undone. I’m a train, Ready to crash into the station. Ruining everything around me. An umbrella leaking water, Although no one seems to notice. So used to counting on myself. What happe...

    And maybe I’m not ok. Maybe I’m fighting to stay on top. Maybe nothing feels like home anymore And it feels like the walls are caving in. And maybe I’m tired of fighting. Maybe I’m sick of lying about if I’m ok. Maybe I’m sick of sitting in this room alone And praying to a God ...

    Faded scars next to new marks. Lines drawn across pale wrists. Hiding behind her mask Her own personal masquerade. A secret prison. Nothing left to lose. No reason to stop. Her dirty little secret. This is her yesterday, her today, and her tomorrow. She breaks her own promises to herself. ...

    Struggling constantly. Believing nothing. Ignoring the lies from the tongues of so many people I once trusted. I’m my own hero right now. Watching the illusions dance around the room like shadows on the wall. Trying to stay afloat. Swimming in this sea of endless questions. No answers in si...

    We bend. We break. And then we fall again. Pieces lying on the floor, Memories of a promise never kept. Standing secluded in the rubble, The broken pieces of shattered hearts. Ashes to ashes And dust to dust. Lovers without a history, An illusion of what was never meant to be....

    She’s feeling terrified and alone, but you’d never know it by looking at her. She lives in her land of make believe, hides the pain behind a fake laugh. And sometimes she lets her guard down and in one small moment, she shows the world the face behind the mask, the tears behind the smile, and th...

    Driving in the middle of the night, The light from other cars’ headlights flash across his face Revealing tears and frustration, A mirror image of my feelings inside. I reach my hand across the center console, Take yours in mine, And squeeze them together. The only way I know to reassure yo...

    You walk away. And I’m left alone. The smell of your cologne in the air. The taste of your lips, still hot on my tongue. The feel of your hair in my fingers. And all that remains are my memories....

    The truth is so incredibly fragile, falling apart so easily. You twist the truth like a natural. Lie to yourself about how things will be. But behind my eyes, the truth still hides. Sqeeze them shut, pretend not to see. Act like you can't hear my troubled cries. Ignore your conscience,...

    Taste: Lying tastes like salt. So heavy on my tongue. The tears continue to fall. Smell: The smell of soap. Because lying is such a dirty thing. Tainted truth and forgotten reality. Sight: The look on your face When I tell you I’m ok. The reason I keep lying. Hearing: These peop...

    You strum your guitar, Not realizing how much it hurts to hear. A sound once so comforting, now tainted with bittersweet memories. The music you create is so beautiful. Once upon a time, it healed a broken heart. Now it breaks it all over again. But I can’t stop listening. You need to kee...

    This moment is slipping away, Like sand through our fingers. Sifting through the memories. Broken promises next to broken hearts. I’ll never find the words to tell you Just how much this rips me apart. How can I save you when I can’t even save myself? I catch myself from falling Beca...

    We ride in silence in your car. My feet on the dashboard, yours on the pedals. Hands clasped together over the center console. Our thoughts kept to ourselves. Peaceful silence or something more? You notice nothing....

    A single drop of blood. A habit misunderstood. Rescuer revealed. Hope for the weary. Compassion for the broken. A home for the lost. He pushes forward. He saves her from herself. A friend to help help her. Hands held together. Fading lines on her wrists. A gentle kiss. Answered p...

    I'm so used to pretending. Letting people think I'm mending. When really normal has been ending all this time for me. I go about my day, stay out of peoples' way, say the things they want me to say, and try to move on. I start to believe the lies. I think of severing ties...

    Life is fragile. Broken by a single bullet, a few tiny pills, a shiny knife. So easily broken. And yet, we run through it. Fearing little,expecting nothing. A skewed perception of reality. To blind to see the cracks in the light....

    Remember when we all believed in fairytales? Mommy and Daddy always knew what was right. Good versus evil, the hero always prevails. Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Snow White, so pale. All were rescued by their charming night. Remember when we all believed in fairytales? Beautiful faces,...

    I am The Anonymous. Overlooked and forgotten, You sit alone in your fragile shell. I am The Anonymous. Rarely seen or heard, You bask in the glow of a few kind words in your direction. I am The Anonymous. You want to be asked how you feel. To actually be listened to would be a small mira...
