It's Okay

By: MuffinsWillRuleTheWorldAugust 18, 2016

It's okay.

 

The first time I heard

those pretty, round words

was the first time I watched

my mother tie a light pink scarf

around her neck

so no one would see

the violet blooming

across her throat.

 

It's okay,

my mother would say.

She said it'd be

better the next day.

 

It's okay.

 

The second time I heard

Recall

By: KoalapearAugust 29, 2016
My father sits at the kitchen table, a look of disappointment I'm all too familiar with etched on his face. A belt is on the table in front of him. I can already hear the words he's told me a million times before. It's for... More  →

Why I Like Fantasy More Than Science Fiction

By: AutumnMooncakesAugust 21, 2016

From the time I was very young, I always preferred fantasy over science fiction. I loved mermaids more than aliens, magic crystals more than lightsabers. I’m not quite sure why, but my hypothesis is this: while fantasy will always be fantasy, science fiction could one

A Love to Let Go

By: TheMockingbird13August 15, 2016

I look at you

my heart says yes

my mind says no,

not today

avoid the mess.

 

I get too close

by accident

I realize late

no escape

fast descent

 

You take my hand.

You drag me in.

I turn to look

"Oh," I think.

"This again."

 

Your eyes meet mine

A beautiful green.

Your eyes are warm

more than I've

ever seen

 

With you

Lighthouse

By: staarxxmarieeAugust 2, 2016

Seems like im traped in hell,

Nowhere to go, no place to call home.

Is this as bad as a jail cell?

I can't even use a normal comb.

Augusta, Georgia, so far from home.

Florida is clearly where i belong.

This isn't a place for me.

This isn't me,

Warm Felicity

By: WaffleloveAugust 1, 2016

If love is a choice, then I

have happened upon the

most monumentally natural

understanding in this lifetime.

It has become breathing,

a steady beating of the heart

sustaining the color of life

around me.

The stars, brighter.

The skies, clearer.

The music, sweeter in

this new clarity.

It is as if I have not

lived outside

Final Exam

By: AutumnMooncakesJuly 27, 2016

Brion comes out of the exam hall dejected. He had studied hard, but even that hadn’t prepared him fully for the exam questions. He does not expect a good score. At least, not anything that his parents would consider good.

When he goes home, his parents

Similarities Between Music

By: AutumnMooncakesJuly 13, 2016

But is it really necessary? Similarities exist everywhere, and YouTubers have a great knack for finding them. Check out these mashups:

‘Heart Attack’ by Demi Lovato and ‘My Heart is Broken’ by Evanescence:
