It feels like yesterday that we first met
Like our story started a moment ago
So how can it be that we've grown so old?
Where did all our precious time go?
They say it was years but I say only seconds
ago that I hoped to one day call you "friend"
But it seems the seconds are ...
Freshman teen, very shy,
has a crush on Sophomore guy.
Sophomore guy, in a whirl,
Can't stop wanting Junior girl.
Junior girl, from her Sedan,
swoons and sighs for Senior man.
Senior man, cool and mean,
fell in love with Freshman teen....
Clouds had been rolling in since before breakfast. By now, the clouds were swollen and pregnant, ready to burst. Curling finger reached down at us, drooping low to the ground like a man without a dream and looking more grim than the undertaker's wife.
Shadows were etched severly on the creas...
"Emily! Phone for you!" my roommate hollered from the living room.
I had just graduated from college three months before and I had finally made it into the real world. At first I had been worried about finding a place to live; I had several vivid nightmare of myself as some hobo living...
I didn’t mean to have anything to do with that obnoxious, pig-headed jerk but he was just so charming and fascinating. And to my eternal dismay, no one ever knew me better than he did.
My name is Emily Faber and I’m just a simple girl. I’ve got dark brown hair, light brown eyes and lightl...
Dick was a plumber’s son with five brothers and sisters; an older brother and sister and two younger sisters and one little brother. Their mother had died giving birth to the youngest one and their father struggled to be both mother and father to his children.
That I wrote a song to tell you that I loved you.
That I waited for you while you forgot about me and went out with someone else
That I was never cute enough to be the one you loved
That I was so nice and not a rude like the ot...
Margaux with the purple and green nail polish on only one hand
Margaux with the real dragonfly clipped in her hair
Margaux who claims she's seen a fairy
Margaux, just Margaux, with no need of a last name
Margaux loud and clear
her sandles flip-flopping,
her hips swish-swaying,
things were easy and carefree
getting high was swinging in the park
caught in the act was mom seeing you sneak another cookie
getting shot just meant a visit to the doctor
being left behind was missing the school bus
a broken heart meant breaking grandma's vase
betryl was y...
Would you set out to see the world?
And leave Faerie behind?
Lost in woods and marshes dark
and kingdoms not half as kind
Have you the heart to say goodbye
to the place that is your home?
Will you turn your back, lose the Sight
and travel out alone?
Would you leave your honored love behi...
Some friends are never what they seem
They are sweet; they are sour
They will curse; they will cry
They betray you every hour
Some will help you on your way
And some just fool around
Some will always have you back
And others will let you down
And how can you keep smiling
Knowing some d...
I can't remember
the little girl that everyone loved
with sunlight swimming in her chocolate hair
with starlight dancing in her eager eyes
her hands reached out to learn and grow
her heart reached out to give you hope
and the world was her playground
but she was happy to share
and some ...
Our English teacher, Mrs. C., was pregnant with a baby boy. She was walking around like she was attempting to smuggle an exercise ball under her dress. Her charming pregnant-woman waddle reminded me of those weird Weeble toys that wiggled but never fell over. Weebles wobble but they don’t fall dow...
