"And that, gentlemen, is another pot for me." Groans went around the table as the gunslinger revealed his cards. "Oh, and..." he looked at his pocket watch, "it seems to be my time to go." The gunslinger began to push back his chair so that he could leave, only to be interrupted by one of his defeated...

The worst thing in the world is not being able to express yourself. The pressure of an impending headache signaling more and more sorrow. The hopeless spinning of worthless ideas. They hang like a shadow, lurking behind the writer to haunt them with failed and miserable, unfinished plans that come to n...

Cold, dark, damp, and still grieving. But life still moves on, an endless tale that’s weaving. Though I’m now far gone, I haven’t made a dent. And all I have now is to cry and repent. I now rest in the place they call death. My being is but empty if not for one breath. With one thing to...

All is silent. All is still. But nobody saw, Just over our gentle hill Loomed a great dark cloud As black as night. The trees are soldiers Tensed for a fight. It’s true power hidden, Destruction would ensue. If only we could see Its sinister hue.   All was silent. ...

My friend Monica and I decided to go hiking over the weekend. We would hike to a campsite and set up a tent. It was supposed to be a fun activity that both of us would enjoy. However, Monica (my best friend since freshman year) decided to bring Janet. Janet was the most annoying person in the universe...

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. ...
