Never Speak a Word

She woke to shadows. Flickering shapes of light and dark smeared smudges on the back of pale hands and stretched like fingers reaching across the polished surface of a hard-wood floor. There was a fire crackling in the hearth and the light of glowing embers drew golden fringes on the edges of the rope tied around her wrists and the wooden frame of the chair to which she was bound. Dread weighed in her stomach as though she had consumed...

What should I do?

What should I do, who should I be. No one choses my life, I do. Why should they chose my path when it is MY path?

I shall see, you shall see, all shall observe the things I chose.

Through the Clouds, We Shall Fly

    There we stood, two giggling girls excited to finally reunite after months of not seeing each other.  We were the best of roommates with the funniest of memories, but she moved back home in November. . . now it was the hot month of June.  Night had fallen, but the air was still warm from the heat of the day, and the whipped cream fluffs in the sky had altered into blotchy black masses illuminated by the moon's fluorescent light....

An Extract From A Story I Am Writing

Jasmine put the pieces of paper on the piano and headed to the floor-to-ceiling bookshelf at the back of the room and began running her fingers across the titles. Third shelf from the bottom, she came across a book that didn't look like a published music book and decided to take it from the shelf. When she took it off she realised it was a journal. She noted that it felt heavy and consisted of more than just its pages...

Floridian Sunrise

    It was the break of dawn, and Brooklyn Meyers sat gazing out her bedroom window admiring the beauty of the sunrise.  The sky was a fluorescent swirl of orange and blue, with the faintest hint of purple streaking across it.  Brooklyn watched as the sun rose, adding gold to the mix of colors, its blinding light breaking through the puffy white clouds that blotted the sky and shedding light over the beautiful beach below.  Waves came rolling in from...

It's Come for Daddy

A ray of moonlight shone on the digital clock as it flicked from 12:00 to 12:01. A little girl roused from her slumber by some insignificant force, hovered about her bedroom window having long ago given up the prospect of sleep. She stared intently as the wind batted the trees about with a cruel ferocity. Blue dressing gown wrapped tight around her, she rested on the window sill. Watching, waiting. She didn’t know what for, she just couldn’t sleep. The...

Writers Camp Reflection

LOVE writers camp, it is so fun and exciting and I love how everyone became friends in such short time. The most inspiring part was when we all gathered around the fire and relaxed, said a prayer and bonded event though no words were said to one another. I really, truely appreciate all of the effort that went with the two days or so of writing. I loved all the effort Mrs B put into this camp to ensure...

White Waves

Steady, lasping blue and foamy white waves crash up against the rocky shorline. The rocks stand tall and firm, jutting out of the barely visible sand. Black and dark brown water stains stand on the rocks' sides where the ocean waves have slapped against it, splashing up onto the rocks. The blue water clams, slowly moving like a current of soliders marching to war. The weapons rise, the soliders run, smashing into their enemy. The waves create a loud splash...

Home Stretch

"About real life. And how your studies apply to it." My teacher continued to drone on about how someday, though we may not think so at this young, ignorant age, we would need the Pythagorean theorem. Because apparantly in the future one of us will need to know that a2 + b2 = c2 so we can become the next Jeopardy! champion, or something like that.

Zooming In

Go to the flat, marshy tail of the British Isles rabbit and zoom in to Cambridge, still flat, with a distastefully prominent hospital cremation tower but otherwise very lovely buildings. Head south, past fields of pungent, yellow rapeseed.


     And here is my village. Skim down the high-street, past squidgy marzipan cottages, and up the hill that is really more of a small lump than a hill, until you reach my own humble road. You’ll know you've found the...

Collapse of Existence

The sun was beating down upon any skin I had been foolish enough to leave exposed. Good clothing and protection was scarce, but water was even more so. My parched tongue knew that, just like my stomach knew it wouldn't be eating anytime soon though still it moaned for food. I spied something in off in the distance of this barren wasteland, and my legs burned as I ran to it. It was a satchel filled with nothing but an empty canteen and...

Gone

Where were you?

When I was lost 

Where were you?

When it was dark

Where were you?

When I was afraid

Where were you?

When I was ready to apologize

I don't know

But you leaving 

Was the best thing 

For me

And the worst thing for you

For let's remember

Who wronged who.

An Invitation

The bell rang. I took my homework and placed it inside my folder.

The folder was a purple one with glitter and stickers all over the front that Honey had made for me. She had a matching blue one with her name plastered all over the front. I smiled at the memory.

Slinging my bag over my shoulder, I headed towards the door.

“Elaine” I cringed. I hated it when people called me by my real name.

“Yes Ms. Frist?”...
