“Freak!” One word Spat distastefully from someone’s mouth Like projectile vomit. It is hissed again in my ear Echoing, stinging, I can feel it. It burns a hole. I sit numb, staring into the window; Staring into space. Ignoring the occasional flick to the back of my head I...

You know the whole, "getting struck by Cupid's dart." In today's modern world though, there are times when we see...

Watching the stars in the night sky We're laying here, just you and I Holding, trembling, not from cold From a feeling deep but not yet old A new spark to begin our time I ask for your hand, and you don't mind We laugh, we talk, we huddle close In the grass that leans above us both Time...

She saw him sitting alone across the room. He was so cute. The way his brown hair fell over his left eye sometimes. He had such gorgeous blue eyes that all she wanted to do was stare into them.

                    “Oh my gosh I will never remember any of this.” I hit my head on the desk in the library. “You’ll be fine why are you so worried? It’s one thing.” Soph held the notecard up. “I don’t know, I give up.” I sighed and she flipped the card. ...

Thrown toothpicks and plastic cups "You're so stupid''s and "Shut the hell up's" You're never sweet, but always cruel Worse than raw meat, and dogs that drool With eyes blacker than the blackest ink Bathed in a cloud of cologne stink You never smile, but always smirk Never been nothing...
