The Doorway

For something I have realized is that when he wants to stay, he will. Stop dragging him back through the door when he’s already slammed it shut. All you’re doing is shattering glass all over the ground and preventing any one else from using the doorway. Advertisements

The Capacity to Break

I want you, tangled in the sheets on a lazy Sunday morning, and not in a sexual way.   For I simply crave your attention, the warmth of your breath, the soft way your hand glides across my cheek, pulling me closer into you, into us.   Images of you and I, dancing in my…

Why I Write

There is nothing more satisfying than sitting in front of a white page eagerly awaiting to be filled with love and loss- tales of anything and everything. The white page is sacred. It demands nothing and everything. All it wants is for someone to come along and scribble down the loud thoughts in her heads, giving…

Little Thoughts: To My Mother

In the middle of the darkness, I ran to you fearing a burglar or someone coming to harm me in the middle of the night in a large house in the suburbs of Massachusetts. A place with no violence. You would respond by lying on the carpeted floor of my bedroom, holding my hand, reminding me that…

Little Thoughts: To a Distant Best Friend

I still remember the first time I ever heard your name, walking down a school hallway lined with green and white linoleum tiles and filled with the smell of chlorine and sweaty athletes But I heard it in a way that made me think I wouldn’t like you The sounds that form your name came of…

Little Thoughts: To A Boy

He pulled her in with his piercing blue eyes A smile that provided comfort but also joy and a heartbeat that pulsated in a rhythm she could dance to Two people from different worlds who for one single second of time were connected   He made her laugh, calling out her name in weird and…

What I’m Looking For

Honestly, I don’t even know where to start this letter but I know I want to write it. Maybe as something to give to you in the future. Maybe more as a way to remind myself of what I’m looking for and what I deserve. Writing as a 19 year old girl who likes to…

Everything I Never Said

Dear you, I guess it’s probably a surprise that I am writing this. How long has it been now? 2 years? It’s kinda crazy how every now and again you still cross my mind, leading me to wonder how you’re doing. Is your life everything you dreamed it would be in high school? How are you…

Little Thoughts: Mesmerizing, Captivating, Loving

  Swirls of caramel in my coffee, tiny flakes of snow on my lashes before the storm becomes too strong, cozying up in blankets, reading stories about worlds far away, under the glow of my christmas lights comfortable, gentle, warm. Soft skin, brown eyes, a tightrope of strength and kindness mesmerizing, captivating, loving.   Have you ever…

My Struggle With My Weight

Life is a tightrope walk between wanting to eat one more slice of pizza and wanting to be that “perfect” girl on the beach with a toned body, relaxing in her bikini. Well, at least, that is what my life has been like. I’ve been trying to balance these two desires ever since I can remember. The…

Dear Mr. President,

Dear Mr. President, You do not know me. I am merely one single face in a mass of people who are simply trying their best to live the life they have always dreamed of. But thanks to your position of power, I know you – well not personally, but through your policies and statements I…
