MaylandBy Isabelle Shachtman
You ask me If I know the way back home from here. I sing the words, “yes, dear” back to you like I’m someone else. You say “alright” because you’ve got nothing else to say right now; I respect that. I keep my eyes on the road. I’m not quite sure where you’re looking at this point
Reflections on WaterBy Jessica Sutter
The water spraying around me
The waves like endlessness enveloping me,
Surrounding me, smothering me
The hugeness of the ocean
Obscures my vision
Numbs my senses
Yet I feel the waves
I feel the water
The TwilightBy Audra Spitzer
Have you ever awakened in the middle of the night? You look around and all your clocks are flashing. Blinking, on and off, on and off. You think to yourself, was it supposed to storm tonight? You decide the best way to find the solution is to check outside.
Take My FearBy Ayah Abdul-Rauf
DIM… DIM… DIM… DIM… DIM… The soft, high note of the last key on a piano rang through the night repeatedly… and it was keeping someone up.
Yes, I am a DreamerBy Mary Kaitlan Schmitt
Yeah, I’m a dreamer,
I dream of so many things.
But do you know what separates all
you other dreamers from me?
You all actually work to achieve your
dream about the future and what you
want to become.
Who We AreBy Blaire Ginsburg
Who dares to enter such a realm?
Escaping with the waking flutter,
Living on bated breath
And translucent promises of
A world all your own;
A world anew.
Kansas CityBy Taj’Zhere Dillard
This here is real.
There are no stories
about happy homes and whole hearts
where we come from.
No fancy cars.
We got no big houses but big dreams.
This is crack fiends at midnight,
babies crying, sleeping on wooden floors.
Dream Behind the GlassBy Anika Rasheed
There’s a girl that I see sometimes.
She pops up from time to time.
Day to day.
She’s a lot of things.
God, she’s beautiful.
And, isn’t she just so funny?
