I was in love with the way you looked at me. But now the only thing you do is talk at me. Why was it so hard to just @ me? I felt like a secret but at least I was one worth keeping. The pain is creeping out. The tears are coming down like the rain outside. I look at the empty driveway Hoping ...

What causes the feeling of loneliness? Is it the lack of people around? Is it the way that you’re treated? Is it an absence of care or love? Everyone gets this feeling at one point, all for varying reasons. Reasons that make sense. Valid, recognizable reasons. So tell me, why is it I’m gettin...

In all of my life, I’d never cared as little as I did now. The shackles that bound my wrists and ankles were cold, but I couldn’t feel a thing. The conversations that surrounded me were a dull hum to my ears. I had traveled over three million miles through space without saying a single word to the...

The sun began to rise at 6:25 in the morning, painting the sky in hues of lavender and rose. A crisp air nipped at my shoulders, the smell of dirt and grass carried in the wind. The beauty of Africa was overwhelming. On Feb. 10, my amazing missions team and I were planning to visit a school in Amur...

We walk down the hallways every day with other kids who once hurt our feelings and we scroll through Instagram liking posts of boys or girls who broke our hearts. Their words and actions are carried on our shoulders. And with every tear we promised to never let them back into our lives, but when we do,...

She did not dare to look at the mess she’d made. She couldn’t bear to. Washed out, strewn across the floor, piles and piles of splinters and pieces of things torn apart, shattered, snapped. These were the remnants of the promises he’d made and the fury she’d unleashed when he broke them. These w...

The darkness enveloped the small pocket of light that surrounded him as he ran down the narrow tunnel. The shadows encroached on his bubble of life, pursuing closely behind, always staying just barely out of reach, but never leaving. The shadows never left you here. Even in the capital, New Venus,...

I was five years old the first time I stepped into my mother’s hometown, where my grandma raised her. To my wide eyes and innocent smile, Coos Bay was something straight out of a daydream. For years, there was nothing I looked forward to more than the 15-hour drive to my grandmother’s open heart a...

The scented candle’s aroma filled the room. Ellis Lark set down a book and grabbed the brown coat that had slept the night on the coat hanger. It was two sizes too large, but a great bargain nonetheless. His feet ached from the shoes that pinched, and the cold watch on his arm was like the icy weather...

In theory, there is one universally known fact: breaking up sucks. As the case with most things, there are usually two options in every given situation. Some choices are frivolous, like choosing between a hot dog or a slice of pizza (definitely go with the pizza). Others are more complex, like choosing...
