Read My MindThe music flooded my ears and I stood to the side, watching as teens danced. The boys had their arms wrapped securely around their girls and I felt envious. I was alone.
I honestly didn't know why I had actually come to this dance in the first place. Sure, my best friend had pleaded for me to go because she didn't want to be alone, but maybe I should've thought about myself for once. She had a boyfriend who was incredibly charming, sweet and cute but I was lonely.
Lonely for Valentine's Day in a Valentine's Dance. How pitiful.
Nonetheless, I swayed gently with the music, watching the dancers with envious eyes. I felt rage strike my heart, because I was jealous of other people. I shouldn't have been. I wasn't beautiful, but I was me. If boys didn't want to ask me to the dance, it's their mistake. They saw girls for their beauty, but I chose guys for their heart. Boys who saw girls for their heart were rare and they should be cherished.
When I saw my best friend dancing wit
Confession"You wanted to tell me something?" she asked, without looking at him. The beauty of the meadow was hypnotizing. The rainbow colored flowers glowed with a peaceful aura and the sunlight flitted in through the winding branches of trees. A soft breeze flew in and rustled the lush green leaves.Confession4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Yes, I did," he answered her, shifting his weight from one foot to the other. He had found the captivating meadow, hoping to lure her in. He had been falling for her harder each day, but it was impossible to know if she felt the same. She was always the secretive one, she hardly ever showed emotions. She was so cold and shutdown.
The girl finally tore her gaze reluctantly away and looked at the nervous boy. Curiosity fluttered deep within her and she was anxious to know what he would say. She watched him with an intent look, her heart sinking as she thought of the possibilities. What if he told her he didn't want to spend time with her? What if he didn't want to be her friend anymore?

Lie To MeThe banging on my front door awakened me from my heavy sleep. And all I could think was, who the hell is at my door at 11:30 at night?Lie To Me4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I wearily pushed out of the bed and went to my front door, dragging my legs and resisting the urge to dive back in bed, so I could go back to sleep. I unlocked the door and swung it open, ready to curse out the one who woke me up from my needed sleep. But my face instantly softened when I saw her. My baby, my cute girlfriend, my loyal lover.
But she didn't look so happy.
Her hand lashed out and my head jerked to the side at the force of her slap. I stumbled back as she put her hand on my chest and shoved. My door slammed shut and pain thundered through my body as she pounded her tightly clenched fists against my chest.
"You lied! You said you loved me! You said I was enough and you'd change! But you lied even after I gave myself to you!" she screamed, but her voice kept cracking as the sobs started.
I looked down at her, my arms lim
The Cut To DeathThe knife slashed down hard across my arm and warm, sticky blood spurted out. The crimson liquid streamed from either side of my arm and dripped onto the hardwood floor, scattering in droplets. Fierce pain meandered up my arm to my core. A shudder rippled through my body and my shoulders hunched forward as I bit my lip to keep from crying out.The Cut To Death4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Blood gushed from the deep jagged cut. The flesh was throbbing and the color was a dirty shade of red. Anger coursed through my veins as a cry left my lips. I found myself raising my hand to slash against my wrist this time.
The force of my cut caused the teeth of the knife to dig half way into my wrist. My head rolled back and I screamed in fresh agony. Blood flooded from my wrist to the floor and I dropped down to the floor, landing with a thud on my side. Pain coursed through my veins and exited out of my system with my blood.
My eyes rolled back into my head and I breathed in gasps. Stars danced in my eyes and my vision darkened. I could myse
Lost Someone I Never Knew"I'm sorry to say," the doctor started, "But your mother has miscarried."Lost Someone I Never Knew4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My whole world came crashing down on me right then and it took a great effort to not collapse onto the floor and bawl my eyes out.
The little brother I've been wanting is dead.
The doctor looked at me expectantly, waiting patiently for an answer and I managed a shaky nod. He looked at me, sympathy in his dull eyes and then turned to walk away.
I took a swaying step back and sat down on the chair I was previously sitting on, before the doctor had arrived to tell me the devastating news. My mother had been 9 months pregnant with a baby boy. He was perfectly healthy, so why did he still have to die?
I was breathing in short, shallow gasps, chest heaving up and down with each breath I took. It hurt, the pain in my chest was great and it was obviously affecting my breathing. I was so excited about the baby, to have a little sibling to play with, since I was an only child, but n

The shout broke the spell I was in. I didn't look in the direction, I knew by the voice who it was. The voice, I couldn't forget it, nope, she was my best friend and she was here to try and stop me.
"Stop it, why are you doing this?" she yelled at me and grabbed my arm, yanking me away from the edge.
I let her pull me away, but I knew as well did she, that this wasn't going to stop me from doing what I wanted to.
"You can't die; you have a family back there for you. You shouldn't leave your brother, boyfriend and friends back there!" she pleaded, her voice desperate, but with a tint of anger.
"I've had my time to live, I need to go," I said, my voice loud and clear.
"No it's not, just let's go back to the camp and we'll talk it out, just don't kill yourself, please!" she tried to reason with me, her sea bl

This feeling shouldn't still be here inside of me.
This feeling shouldn't be here, it is not meant to still be there.
I found a wonderful man, who truly loves me and I him.
So why is that damn feeling not gone?
When you find happiness that feeling is supposed to leave you isn't it?
So why do I feel as though I am still missing a piece of myself?
Is it because I gave up hope for the one whom I dreamt of?
Is it because I fell in love with another?
I am happy.
I found light in the darkness.
The darkness you left me in.
I saved myself, I could no longer wait for you.
So why is it still there?
I feel that someone was meant to be there for me,
and when that person failed to show,
I moved on.
So why is that feeling still deep inside of me?
Are you a friend?
Are you a lost sibling?
Are you a lover?
Why did you never find me?
I felt you out there always.
I know you are out there.
Why did we never meet then?
Why did you not come to me?
Why did you leave me alone?

He gasped at the coldness of her skin; it felt like she had been laid in a freezer. He matted down her bloody hair and stroked her face. The accusing eyes looked out into the empty space ahead as her face tilted to the side from his touch.
Warm tears leaked from his eyes as reality sank in. They rolled silently down his smooth face and dripped from his chin. Pain masked his face as he stared at the lifeless girl in front of him. His lips quivered and a sob tore itself from his throat. The anguish blinded him as his eyelids drooped, struggling to hold in the burning tears that threatened to spill in an uncontrollable speed.

I remembered all the conversations we had; I memorized every word that left her soft, pink lips. How could I forget the day I pretended to get scared out of mind and she had to comfort me? It's impossible to forget how her small arms curved around my back and her sweet laughter. It made me happy to realize I was the one who had made her laugh. I wasn't really scared that day when we were watching Final Destination 3. I just wanted to feel her touch.
I read the next paragraph, mumbling the words quietly. Light laughter tumbled from my lips. Oh God, I'll kill her if she told anyone I was scared of spiders. Not really, though, you just couldn't kill people you love.
I remembered holding her. I remembered how she fit perfectly in my arms, like that was where she belonged from the beginning. I loved being close to her and I loved to make her feel better. It sent fireworks exploding in my chest

I was the girl you used to stay awake talking to through the whole night. I was the girl you used to hold hands with when you were scared out of your mind while watching Final Destination 3 even though you were 16 years old and I was only 14. You were full 2 years older than me, but you were such a wuss. I was practically the boy in our friendship.
Remember when we used to share everything with each other? You admitted to being scared of spiders and the dark and I told you I hated worms and they creeped me out. I still remember you laughing at me until I had brought out that fake spider from my drawer. Ha-ha. Who was laughing then?
Do you recall of the time you held me as I cried into your chest after fallout with my best friend? You were rubbing my back and whispering real sweet words into my ears. It made me feel like I was the only girl in the world. Actually, no, how you comforted me didn't. It was all you. You made me feel loved and wanted.

Caressing me with your tongue.
When your hands run through my hair
You brush away all my worries and leave me

I'm afraid you'll leave me behind.

I was also having problems with my studying. I always felt tired, nauseous and hungry. Jayden, my boyfriend of three years, didn't notice. He was completely engrossed in his school work. His family had always doubted him, so he wanted to prove them wrong. I, however, had an idea of what was wrong.
After getting home from class, I went straight into the bathroom. I had taken the test in the morning and had been shaken up the whole day. I would finally get my answer.
The pink positive sign brought me into full blown sobbing. Oh my God, what was I going to do? I was only twenty, not even through my second year of college. Jayden and I were having money problems and on top of that, now we had a baby on the way.

Hidden with reason

You are so beautiful.
Everything about you is amazing.
But now what?
How do we proceed through this journey,
This moment of decision making,
That has reached this stand-still crossroad?
Do we take the left path?
And simply tell ourselves that it was all a dream,
Dismissing everything that was said,
Everything that has happened,
And go our separate ways,
Just as friends?
Or do we take the right path?
Confessing everything to each-other?
Pouring our hearts out like a never-ending river?

But I can say with complete and utter confidence,
That it doesn't matter.
How ever you feel
I will respect,
I could never be mad, or angry with you.
I could never judge you, or hold a grudge.
It may be that I don't know you enough to care about such trivial things,
Or maybe I know you all too well.
Well enough to know how sweet and amazing you actually are?
But I know this,
That without you here with me,

It means emotional.
Suicidal doesn't mean prone to deadly thoughts and actions,
It means unloved.
It's not their faults,
It's the people around them who kill them inside.
If people around would just love them,
Then they would feel normal.
They would feel loved.
And they wouldn't continue the madness.
It's not a choice,
It's a forced action.
It's not fair,
For the world to hate them,
Just 'cause they're different.
