Winter Nights

Winter Nights Dancing flames cast a light upon the room. Soft smiles, warm mugs Gentle words and silent love Legs curled up together Intertwined hands blocking the cold of once lonely souls, Souls without love Souls without Each Other. Snow softly falling, enveloping the world in childlike wonder. Cozy sweaters and fuzzy socks. When winter…

shy

The quiet in the loud, The calm in the storm, My comfort in panic, My single rose in the midst of snow, The world is merciless, The cold and anger never seem to leave, My heart beats restlessly-Anxiety taking ahold of me, You keep this raging fire at bay, You make the world seem beautiful…

Pages

Pages   She relaxes into the melody of turning pages. She feels what they do, hears and speaks along with them. Every book is a new life, a new adventure to live. On those quiet silent nights you can hear her pen, creating lives of her own. On these pages writers speak. Voicing an outcry…

The Impossible Art of Fiting In

My entire life I’ve longed to fit in somewhere. Like a lost puzzle piece under a carpet… Starting school was weird for me. I always had one best friend and a couple other friends. But I only ever felt like I fit in when I was with that one friend. Around 5th grade I started…

The Candle

The Candle There is a lonely candle, that sits in a cave. It’s the only light in that dark hidden place. And anyone lucky enough to find it, should keep it close, for it will guide the way to the richest place. But be careful as not to get too close to the scorching flame,…

The Promise of a Poem

*First, I would like to say that the cover photo has to do with a good memory I have with my Opa.* This morning I got bored so I decided to look over some of my old writing. As I was shuffling through old poems I found one that stuck out to me that I…

Coming Alive

I have always been the type of person to question everything. Now, I’ve learned to embrace my inquisitive nature. Sometimes, however, when the anxiety and the questioning intertwine I can scare myself a bit. This past week I was driving home from vacation when I started reading the blog of friends brother (It’s really good! Read…

Why?

As a future theater major and aspiring actress “why?” is a word I’ve been hearing an awful lot. Why am I majoring in drama? Why am I trying to move to New York City? Why am I not picking a more “reliable” career path? Why am I not double majoring with something safer? Why do I…

Love, Your Body

My Dearest Mind, We’ve been together for a very long time. We’ve grown up together and been together since the start, but recently I’ve noticed a change. A change in our relationship, something too serious not to speak up about. I’ve felt this build up and I need to ask you now… When did you stop…

Because of Bullies…

Robert Frost said, “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” I saw myself as a victim most of elementary school and middle school. Hell, I saw myself as a victim my freshmen year of high school. I’m not going to…

The Viper

A circle with those I love. One by one, the viper strikes, until there is none left but me. I stand alone, watching his every move, Waiting to see if he’ll approach. Waiting for his move. I close my eyes knowing any moment could be my last, any breath could end cold. This viper has…

The Red Curtain

I stare at the red curtain, my breath hitching every time my chest rises. I can hear the voices from the other side, laughing and crying. Wiping my sweaty hands on my victorian dress I look around and see people all dressed in black, writing on clipboards and speaking into headsets. This is the life…
