    She hears the roar, of the crowd, of her teammates, of her enemies, the thumping beat of the music. Her fingers don’t shake as she holds her shiny, new gun, ready to obliterate her opponents. she takes a breath, a grin plastered on her face that the others can’t see behind her mask. And then all hell breaks loose, color everywhere, noises…[Read more]

    This short story has (like all stories need) characters, and a rising and falling action that serves as guidelines for the direction of how the story is taking shape. ie : The little girl going to visit her grandmother as the rising action, and her realization that her grandmother has passed away as the falling action.

  • Lets Share A Drink

    Can’t let you get chipped or shattered
    As we teeter through the hall
    Sighing in ecstasy for what’s to come
    You smell divine as always
    Raspberry, black cherry, or lemon lavender
    Stirr the life you’ve been given
    Tapping tunes of merriment on your hollow body
    You can’t complain
    Or say that you love me as much as I lo…[Read more]

  • It would be easier to
    pretend everything’s fine,
    Yet I feign a smile.
    I could go outside,
    leave my house and socialize,
    But everything makes sense under the darkness of my blankets
    I don’t want to leave.

    It’s 3am, and I should sleep,
    Instead I listen to the voices creep
    in and whisper all the things that are wrong and false and…[Read more]

    “You can do it.” “It’s not that hard.”
    Lies, but you don’t hear my voice.
    “Smile.” “Eat.” “Speak.” “You’ll feel better.”
    What is better? Can you at least tell me that?
    “You have to at least try.”
    Try…

    I am trying
    Trying and barely staying afloat
    Trying to force myself to fit your image
    I look in the mirror and I c…[Read more]

    Both Langston Hughes poem “Harlem” and Gwendolyn Brooks’ “Kitchenette Building” touch upon the theme of unobtainable dreams. Although the specificity of those dreams vary there’s still a common longing and dissatisfaction in both of the poems. Brooks describes her dream as “Grayed in, and gray,” yet it also “makes a giddy sound (Brooks 2).” In…[Read more]

    My mind is a black hole
    Let my heart be a tomb
    Stairs acting like rubber bands
    As the door introduces my doom
    Slip into reality
    Let the chain at least extend
