Late at night, late at night…all I want to do is take a drive down to your house and wait for a while. All I want to do is wait for you to come out dressed in your sleep clothes and get into the car. All I want to do is take a drive down… Read More If You Can Dream It…
From a girl who was taught and forced to hide her emotions and true feelings to a girl who is brave enough to force herself to experience the emotions that course through her veins, I survived. From a girl constantly being lectured about how she was “too much like a boy”, “too quiet”, or “not… Read More Life’s Accomplished Stars
It’s the way he looks at me, in those split seconds where it feels as if the whole room only holds him and I, that I find myself feelings those butterflies again for the first time. It’s the way she runs her fingertips along my back, my arm, or my hand as her silent way… Read More She and He. Forever and Beyond.
I still get nervous around you. Your smile lights up the room. Your laugh warms my heart. Your eyes looking into mine have the power to wake up the sleeping butterflies in my stomach. Sometimes I don’t know what to say, I don’t know how to act. You always seem to have everything under control,… Read More Potential to Go Far
The day you came into my life, I would have never guessed your existence would mean so much to me. The day you first started up a conversation with me, I would have never known you’d be one of my closest friends. The day you first sat in my car, I would not have had… Read More Autumn in My Bones
When I got my job, my friend – one of the few who saw me go through everything we put each other through – had warned me about running into you. She was wary of the possibility that I might have to have a forced interaction with you. I thought the possibilities were low since… Read More Doors Closed Can Be Opened Again
One day it won’t matter how long you’ve known me. One day it won’t matter how much you want to be there. One day, I won’t care. After you’ve left me hanging, one too many times? After you let me down, way too much? After you’ve broken both the promises you said, and the silent… Read More I Hope ‘One Day’ Never Comes
A meadow lit by the soft rays of the sun, a field of grass warmed by the sound of laughter as children run along, a save heaven for little fairytales to spread their wings and sore into the hearts of those who love. This is where I remember experiencing that warmth in my heart for… Read More Today, Just Breathe
I look down at my hands and see the rings that I wear. I remember the memories that come up the silver jewelry. I remember what it felt like to have you by my side. “True Love Waits” states the first ring I received, the first ring that meant a whole lot more to me… Read More Silver Jewelry More Priceless Than Gold
Every day there is something that could have gone better. Every day there are people I wish to see and conversations I want to have. Every day there is another list of tasks that I need to get through. Every day there is something new to worry about. Every day there are new (and old)… Read More Today. Now.
I know there are a lot of things I worry about that I shouldn’t. I know there is a lot of weight I voluntarily carry that I should probably put down. I know I spread myself thin at times, and that’s my fault. I know this is how I am. But, in all of that,… Read More Always Here
She stands in the corner with her head down, trying to hide the demons that dance in her eyes. Her body is barely trembling with the fear in her mind taking control of her limbs. Her eyes are closed as she tries her best to calm her breathing and slow down her heart rate before… Read More Elevator from the Past
Can I be honest? I’m a first-generation college student coming from a pretty traditional Asian-American household. Instead of pursuing a career in the medical field like my many aunts and uncles, like my parents wish, and my older sister likewise, I am finding a place for myself in engineering and computer science. Let’s just say… Read More This Is Me…as of Today
Something recently happened…and I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. I’ve been talking to this classmate/friend of mine, who I just met this summer in class. (Let’s call him Ace.)
