    Sitting on the surface is a girl who wears a smile. Her blue eyes outlined in black, But they pour out the soul of a child. Boy’s sneakers strapped to her feet, Skinny jeans clutching her skin, A mouth that argues and can’t be beat, But upon her lips always sits a grin, Despite the horror...

    Dear Boy, This is your toy doll speaking. Yes, you know the Barbie you tossed onto the shelf after a month because you grew bored of her? Hey there, that’s me. I’m aware you’re silly biological make-up has programmed you to see me in this manner, but I’d like to alert you that I’m not ...

    The lump in my throat has grown to a size that is potentially lethal. Was it silly of me to think that your stuttering of ‘I, I, I’ over the phone had been you trying to tell me you loved me? Silly me. “I think it’d be best if we were just friends.” Pardon me, but I wasn’t aware we...

    Your loving words, Coated with care and the scent of sincerity Are empty beneath their attractive packaging. Hiding under a thick layer of make-up Resides the most hideous face You enter through the door And lungs become absent of air Holding back breath with unspoken prayers That by some m...

    Blank pages filled with endless possibility So my dear friend, Let your mind wander See what you discover Spill your unspoken secrets on a sheet of paper Release your emotions Explode on this paper Because, dear friend, That's what it was made for Rhymes are simply chains Holding you ...

    Love is a disease of the mind A poison to the soul A thief of the heart Stolen, still beating, from one's chest It is a drug that all people crave Addiction is impossible to escape We want it We need it Dying to reach it And once we have it One is utterly oblivious to the rest of the ...

    To feel love Is more than simply to desire It is to desperately need Once the eye has caught the beauty In which is contained that of first love You may deny it Til’ your death bed drowns you In its endless slumber of unconsciousness But the feeling shall forever remain Burning so bright...

    Starting to grow bored of playing with my polly pockets, I got up off the ground, looking for something else to do. Leaving my mess of dolls scattered across my bedroom floor, I decided to head downstairs to the playroom, my favorite polly pocket still clutched tightly in my tiny fingers. I skippe...

    An icy chill ran down my spine as I shivered. The air seemed to be especially cold tonight, maybe it was because I was nervous, or perhaps because I hadn’t brought my winter coat, and so there I stood on the concrete front steps with merely a pair of black jeans, a white T-shirt, and a tight dark ...

    I stood in front of the painting, pondering the picture, turning over in my mind the colors and emotions that poured from the piece. What were they thinking as they stroked their brush on the paper? Did they quickly slap the paint on in a rush? Or did they slowly and carefully plan out ever line? Wh...

    Losing my grip on reality as you slip through my fingers washing me out of your life with these tears that now streak down my cheeks staining my skin burning like acid as every word you ever spoke becomes a lie the only thought that remains, keeping me up all night and day spinning thro...

    Ever questioning Ever doubting The honesty behind your eyes Or perhaps the words you speak Are nothing but meaningless lies Suddenly my scattered thoughts Are immediately dismissed With simply the taste Of your cherry red lips Your chocolate brown eyes Melting my fears ...

    Heads look up Catching a glimpse Jaws drop In ultimate suspense Eyes meet Time stops A silent connection passes The tension bubble pops Scattered thoughts are dismissed One thought remains Curiosity as to what This fragile second contains Unblinking stares Hearts skip around Pounding ...

    Thousands of cardboard cut outs There are similarities, but no two are alike Every piece serves a purpose Not one of them is worthless As hard as you try to stand alone You can't live on your own To see the full picture We must work together Only certain ones fit As if they were made f...

    Full of magic And infinite happiness, Full of tragic And infinite sadness. Love is merely a word A word that is so absurd It makes us cry And squirm and writhe The most powerful of all emotions Full of hate and deception, Full of passion and devotion, Filling our minds with ridiculou...

    They wake up in the morning, Wiping at their weary eyes. To a world in which, No love lies. They grab their tools, And head off to work. A five year old, Trudging through the heat. A five year old, With scraped up feet. This silent soldier moving along, Hoping to be alive, When his day i...

    I crawl into the shadows, And slip between the cracks. Unseen by the average person, I am invisible and don’t leave tracks. No sign that I was there, No sign I will return. No sign that I am here, No sign that I was heard. Not bothering to realize, Or even try to dare. Not bothering ...

    You crawled into my mouth And became the only word to escape my lips. You overthrew my brain, And now control my thoughts. You slipped into my stomach And filled it up with butterflies You tickled my lips And curled them into a smile. You rubbed against my cheeks And left an eternal blush....

    Too many children, Wiping at their eyes, Too many stories, With unspeakable lies. Too much sadness, And overwhelming depression, Too much badness, Its leading to aggression. Too many tears, Sliding down cheeks, Too many fears, Of which the world speaks. Where is the light? In a wo...

    Most have called it impossible to reach, Yet most still attempt to grasp it. Clutching, grabbing, almost there, But success is incredibly rare. The truth still proves to be true, Perfection does not exist. But the need for others to approve, Is so large it can’t be missed. We strive an...

    Tiny droplets splash the ground, Meeting the pavement with a tiny sound, But all together they sing to the skies, As they fall from a crying cloud’s eyes. They beg for the clouds to stop their tears, Sadly clouds do not have ears, And so they didn’t hear the raindrops pleas, Their unhea...

    I could feel the intensity of the heat on my back as the fire roared behind me. It wasn’t my fault the fire started. It wasn’t my fault my little brother, my mom, and my dad, were all trapped inside right now. I sat here on the curb outside my house. It seems like I should have done something, b...
