Alive Under the Lights

Alive Under the Lights

January 14, 2015

There is nothing that fills me with such joy, Then being on the stage under the lights. It is superior to any boy And nothing makes me shine as bright. As soon as the great curtains are opened I am completely transformed and reborn. And every written line that is spoken, Floats off...

Familiar Strangers

Familiar Strangers

Ashley Thoms, Writer

January 12, 2015

Darkness consumes me, and the only thought that distracts me from the expanse of hollow nothingness is that I am in pain, and I think I am going to die. Racking my brain for the answer to how I got here divulges nothing. There is no memory before now, nothing to comfort me in the dark. My body aches...

Close the gap I need to feel your embrace Like a drug I crave it Never before have I felt this way Being near you is intoxicating I am drunk on you Drunk on your smell High on your touch Intoxicated by your voice Like a drug I crave it Close the gap

“You know, Emily, ever since you were a little girl you loved the buildings,” says Robert Wade. “What?” Emily inquires with a little chuckle. “I don’t know, I’m just making small talk. I can’t believe I’m driving you all the way to the high school today. For years upon years we...

Lost In a Book

Lost In a Book

Raquel Kassa, contributor

January 7, 2015

I don’t know where I am. I’ve been searching for the right place to be. I feel like I’ve been looking for too long. I must stop. It’s not that easy though. I’m lost. Between the pages. And the hard covers stop me from escaping. I have to go through it all now.

You can’t see me, but I can see you You can’t hear me, but I can hear you You don’t know me, but I know you   I’ve known you since the moment you moved into this house This is the closest I can get to contacting you, this is a call for help I’ve been trapped in the house for cen...

War within

Remnants of a fire The last of strength   Battles won and lost The war still waging   Substance is dire Something to fight for   There may be a cost To rekindle the flame within   Find the desire To live...

Writer’s Curse

Writer’s Curse

December 17, 2014

I claw and I scrape and I hit furiously; scribbling the fleeting momentary human description of life that formed in my silly little mind. It escapes perfection each time; leaving me only more engulfed in finding the perfect combination of words to capture the fleeting emotion that is a human, the fle...

My gift to you, word for word

My gift to you, word for word

December 17, 2014

When Mrs. Lambada asked the class to write a “personal” poem as our final project, I didn’t know what to expect. I asked her, “Can’t I just write about what I did last summer? or my dog Sandy?” She responded with, “No, no, no, my darling, it must be something that is brought out of your...

Grace isn’t Very Graceful

Reilly Card

December 17, 2014

Grace is not very graceful. She used to be happy, in fact, her happiness was infectious. Grace used to laugh with her friends in classes and down the halls. She waved at those she knew and smiled to those she didn’t. She was always helping others and volunteering to give answers. She was charming and...

Drop Bear, Beware!

Drop Bear, Beware!

Ashley Thoms, Writer

December 17, 2014

In the darkest and most dangerous parts of the land down under lives a ferocious beast. The beast, a cousin of the koala bear, looks adorable and fluffy when first approached. If a person saw this beast roaming the forest floor, they would think that it's just another cute animal that cannot cause any...
