    The day you found me sprawled out on the ground With my sticky back pressed into burning gravel, You told me you were going to quit smoking. Yet somehow, as you absentmindedly flicked your ashes into my hair, I did not believe you. I went home and I did not bathe for weeks – An attempt ...

    That first kiss was anything but perfect. We were standing in your driveway after having watched “Troll 2” and laughing about it, followed by an awkward conversation about the nature of our relationship that ultimately ended in both of us admitting that we liked each other. So there we were, ...

    Dear Henry, I see you every single day in the hallway, yet we haven’t talked in years. I think that’s pretty awkward considering you were my first kiss and I think about that at least once a week. Last week I was passing by your house with my friend and I started wondering if you ever think abo...

    “Wait. Before you kiss me again, there’s something you should know.” “Alright, what is it?” “I’m a prostitute.” “Seriously?” “Yes, seriously.” “Damn. You must make some good money that way.” “It’s a pretty great job, especially considering I’m a ny...

    You used to tell me I was beautiful every day and I believed you for those entire seven months every time you said it. I could eat an entire pint of ice cream and feel good about myself because I knew you’d love me anyways. You’d tell me my eyes were gorgeous or that I was a great kisser or that...

    July: London, England. The cancer had spread to my lymphnodes while I was in Europe the first two months. They tried a more intensified chemo treatment and surgically removed one of the two tumors on my head. But round two of chemo had really taken its toll. I felt sick 24/7 and it also left me b...

    I’d always known there was a possibility I’d get skin cancer. The disease was 95% hereditary. My grandma had it with a 2% chance of living, and she survived. My cousin had it with a 10% chance of living and she survived. So when I found out that I had a stage two melanoma on my scalp, I wasn’t...

    I pulled up to her house, parked, and took a deep breath. I had never met her parents before, and I didn’t know what they would think of me. What they would think of us. I was afraid they wouldn’t approve of me, even though I knew Alley told them about me. Her parents knew about me, but they ...

    First kisses are supposed to be perfect. They're supposed to be romantic and sweet. You're supposed to fall in love just after you kiss and feel fireworks all over your body. You're supposed to be under the stars at your front door after the perfect date. A shooting star flies by, and he sa...

    He was my friend. A few inches taller than me, strong arms, nice voice. He had that stupid hair that he always flipped out of his face and it looked like he had a twitch. I made fun of him for it. Our director said he had to cut it before the show. When he did, I decided I had liked it better long. ...

    “Almost Lover” by A Fine Frenzy. You do realize that this perfectly describes us, don’t you? Or is that just me? I remember that night so perfectly. I remember how we were attached at the hip for about 3 hours. I remember how you had your arm around my waist the whole night and how you...

    “Oh my god, would you look at me for once?” It’s late. Eleven P.M to be exact. They are sitting down on his bed. “Jesus,” she sighs. “You could look at me when you tell me you love me. It wouldn’t kill you.” He looks up. Her face is frustrated and strained. There is a hint ...

    I saw you today. Actually, I saw you twice. The first time, you turned around and pointed at me and said, “You just lost!” and then turned back around. I think your friends told you I was coming. I think they know me. Well, not know me, but know who I am. That’s because I interrupt your con...

    I remeber being three Holding my mother's hand as we walked the dirty New York streets Walking in my patent leather mary-janes "Toe, heel, toe, heel" Acting elegant and rich In my blue dress that buttoned up the front Or my magenta parka with the hood up And my bag for preschool on my back W...

    We saw her in English through the door. I called out her name in a whisper. She turned to see my best friend and I waving at her. She quickly looked to the front of the classroom and then waved us away. I turned to go into my math class when I heard a few loud giggles from my best friend. 'Inside ...

    She looks with tired eyes Her eyes have seen years They have seen things no one should see They have cried meaningful and pointless tears As she awakes, she opens her eyes And prepares for another day of misery She rubs her tired eyes and walks to her bureau With wrinkled hands, she opens t...
