My fallen tears did not fall in vain. For only four words have released me from this pain. His presence may not be near, But of death, I no longer fear. Death has left my love alone. Time himself has moved on, So of it, we shall atone. My love reflects in the midnight sky. So bol...

I curl up with my journal, my favorite black gel pen firmly in my grasp. The music that flows through the headphones is steady, unlike my heartbeat. My lip slightly quivers as I hear the distant shouts and angry tones that float up from downstairs, my parents once again going at each other’s throats...

If a tree falls in the forest and there's no one to hear it, does it even make a sound? The woman wondered this as she walked the trail, behind the neighborhood park. It was a crisp autumn afternoon, her favorite type of day. The kind of day where everything is quiet and tranquil, when the sun i...

A beautiful lie A beautiful deception A beautiful disaster   A beautiful lie Grown from the hurtful truth Made to protect, not harm you   A beautiful deception Plotted by the ones who care Made to save you from the cruel world   A beautiful disaste...

She is everything the coursing water is--soft, yet sharp, strong and gentle, calm and rushing all at once. She closes her eyes to the song that plays and has faith in herself alone. You could call her the calm before the storm and the eye of the hurricane. She overwhelms you with the same m...

Holding on with every bit of strength I try to hold back the tears in my eyes Attempting to relieve the pain But the cracks in my heart somehow seep through Causing my walls to burst Causing my emotions to explode   In frantic worry Trying to shut everything down Like ...

I awake to the door of my room screeching open like it does every morning. It’s my mother waking me up for school, but something is different. My room looks different. It’s bigger. Everything is so big, and I am not in my bed. Someone else is in my bed, and I’m…on the floor? How on earth did...

I cling to the steel bars of the fire escape, my knuckles turning white from my tight, sweaty grip. As I stare down the five floors to the now fire-engulfed alley, I wonder, how did I get up here? The snarls of the feral, animalistic-humanoids below me snap me from my depressing thoughts. A startled gasp l...

Liam Patell had been watched his whole life. Now, however, as he lay alone in excruciating darkness, he realized no one would ever watch him again. He remembered his mother. She was one of those actresses that producers fought to have in their cast. Her name was painted across countless movies, s...

It happened so fast. The school he had once known had become so distorted and alien within mere minutes. Granted, the walls and floors were the same as they had always been, yet with someone in the school, everything seemed to be on edge. Rogers looked around to see where he was going. Surely someon...
