The whispering in the woods is melodic and enchanting. The winds drift through the autumn air, plucking leaf from branch like child from mother. It’s a fascinating thing, the noise of silence--how nothing can’t actually be nothing. I find peace in the deafening harmony of the fall winds. The crackling of brush under fo...

”Guys, this is a terrible idea,” I protested as my friend, Alex, approached the steel cage blocking off the staircase to the roof. I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop him, but I had to at least try. “You do realize you could get into huge trouble, right?”     “Not if I don’t get caught,” Alex smir...

I wish I could explain The inner workings of my brain Because maybe then I would not feel so alone Overthinking   When I am in a good mood I am almost outside myself But when I am down I can feel the walls of my body decaying Feeling in extremes   Expectations can kill you People will ex...

“Shift, darling,” the artist’s dominant voice rang out, distinctly accented, “No, no! Ach du Sch… ja! Perfekt! Hold it, hold it.” The legs of the easel scraped on the worn wood floors as it was dragged a few feet to the left. She took great care to hold her position, letting the pulsat...

Screams could be heard from the cold, silver bleachers. Cheering came from everywhere as the player on the field sprinted to the end. “Aye, we got another point,” said my friend Jackie. I had no idea what was going. Football wasn’t something I could understand as easily as Jackie and Pamela. ...

“Mom, I’m going out to hang out with some friends!” my sister shouts out to my mother who is in the kitchen. “Okay honey, be safe… it’s raining cats and dogs out there, so text me when you get there!” my mother yells back to her, probably too afraid dinner will burn if she moves away fr...

How did my life get to here? This morning I was getting ready to be the best man at the wedding of my life-long friend, Ryan,  and now I'm running from the cops in a chicken costume. I guess it all started yesterday at the rehearsal dinner for the wedding. I had run into an old friend from grade...

Lucid dreaming. It's something always been something I've been able to do, the ability to be in a dream and realize that I'm dreaming. Some lucid dreamers say they have the ability to manipulate their dreams, but I can never do that. Before I can even get a word out in my dream, I find myself awake i...

My breath quivers as I carefully open my bedroom door. Once I do, I am faced with the dark hallway that hides my family’s past behind glass panes. They hold pictures of our once happy home: my smiling mother, my loving father, my serious yet silly sister, my baby brother with the big heart, and me. It ...
