The Dome

In the evening as the sky turned a light shade of orange, I was writing on a tree stump. Blissfully unaware of how stiff I was. I was in my own world, watching the words dancing on the page, hearing the wind whistling in my ears, when I heard the wind call my name. I looked up as though expecting there to be someone trying to trick me, but no. I continued to circle my head and heard it again, ...

He, She, and I

My heart was hidden, but she touched it.

My heart was dead, but she uplifted it.

My heart was incurable, but she resurrected it.

 

She was wild, but he broke her.

She was defiant, but he mastered her.

She was vibrant, but he numbed her.

 

He left her, but I found him.

He pleaded, but I silenced him.

He struggled, but I finished him.

 

But then she left me, too.

Zipper Zapper

Zipper Zapper’s zipper zapping was too zippery for zany zappers. Unfortunate zippers hated the zapping Zipper Zapper, whose intentions were disciplinary for zippers who zap. In return, Zipper Zapper zaps them, and the zippers will never zap nor zip again. However, the few surviving zippers that didn’t cower in the utter horror of Zipper Zapper had avengous intentions to zap Zipper Zapper, and gain back their former zipping, zapping glory. When Zipper Zapper heard of this, the whole zapping ordeal...

The Art of Scarring

"You called." I state as I walk into the dimly lit office, though it looks more like one of those fancy politician's offices rather than the standard cubical. Hard wood flooring, dark brown walls, a solid oak desk with three black leather chairs around it and a tinted glass cabinet behind it which I'm certain contains illegal beverages and substances alike all add to the overwhelming feel of luxury at any price. My boss sits behind the desk, playing with his half...

I Wish...

I wish there was no illness

I wish there was no pain

I wish there was no sadness

and that people did not strain

 

I wish there was no such thing as stress

and families broken apart

I wish that the world wasn't such a mess

and that people wouldn't depart

 

I wish there were more summer days

and friends to share it with

I wish my smile would last longer

I wish death was just a myth...

Hozier - Hozier Album Review

Hozier’s self-titled album is one of my favorite releases of 2014. Each song has the ability to truly make you feel some type of way. For instance, Take Me to Churchuses traditionally gospel associated chords and progressions ironically against his lyrics to emphasize the injustices and hypocrisy observed from the church. Even pushing aside the introspective lyrics for a moment, solely based on the music itself, just the instrumentation, Hozier can pull, twist, and harbor emotion in a...

Misterwives- Our Own House Album Review

I had the pleasure of seeing MisterWives open for twenty one pilots on the Quiet is Violent tour after I’d been jamming to the Reflections EP all summer. Ever since then, I was highly anticipating the debut album Our Own House. Truly, this album packs a punch that was hinted at in Reflectionsand definitely felt live. The title track completely sums up MisterWive’s sound in one kick-ass-80’s-pop-dance-jam of a song. You can no help but completely rock out...

A Foreigner in my Own World

    Some days, I feel like a foreigner in my own state of self.  I find myself questioning who I am, who I hope to be, and whether the two resulting flows of thoughts in answering these questions even remotely coincide.  The purely superficial view of who I am from the perception of an outsider is as follows:  Her name is Sunshine Rose; a pretty name for a pretty girl.  She is a young lady, petite with beautiful features.  Sweet...

The Beach

The beach is probably my favorite place to be. You can swim, look for shells, make a sand castle, tan, and just relax and have fun. I love it when we go to the beach and I really wish I could live near one. Ususally my mom's whole side of the family goes on a big vacation to the beach and we stay in a beach house that is just a short walk to the ocean. I love to swim...

School

SMELL: As I walk through the halls a scent of body odor mixed with people's perfumes and cologne enters my nose. My nose does not enjoy school. Walking into the classroom, you can smell disenfectant that was used the previous day to clean the desks, chairs, and floors. Pencil shavings and chalkboard dusk tickle my nose. Opening up my textbook, I smell that 'new book smell.'  

SIGHT: Walking down the hallways of the high school I pass all familiar faces....

The Lion's Deal

I lay among the bones of my cage, feigning sleep, as I knew what was to come when the sun was to climb above the horizon the next morning.

The sound of echoed foot steps came patrolling down the empty, dampened hall. Accompanying it was the tapping of a stick against metal bars. The sound of clinking metal escalated in volume before the founder of said noises halted just outside my cage. He banged his stick back and forth against...
