The Phases of BeautyPhase one starts with the basics. Wash off all that invisible grime off your face. Brush your hair out of its bed headedness. Normal stuff. Brush your teeth; yellow smiles aren't all that pretty. Phase one is simple, easy. But it's never enough. You're still too natural looking Naturally ugly.The Phases of Beauty in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Scramble through your closet, here's phase two; clothes. Being beautiful also means being fashionable, so all you have is overpriced designer labels to shift through. Find the jeans that make your butt look cute and the shirt that makes you look older and look! You've got an awesome outfit on your hands. Accessorize accordingly; the right jewelry could make or break this outfit. At least, that's what all the magazines say.

I'm so fat, she'd say to herself every morning in the mirror. Size 2 waistline. It wasn't good enough. She could do much better. She needed perfect.
"Oh, Brielle," her friends would say at lunch, disappointment clear on their faces. "Not eating again today?" School food was dripping with unhealthy grease and calories. The question would echo in the back of her head. Eat? I don't need to eat, look at me! Now, she barely heard it anymore. They were used to it.
Everyone was used to it. Her friends would joke about how she could probably get blown over by a big enough gust of wind, how she was too skinny. She laughed; her friends were too funny. One kid even said something about starving herself. Starve myself? Ridiculous! Can't they see how big I am? It's called a diet.
Sooner or later.Once upon a time, I breathed in innocence and exhaled simplicity. I remember it fondly.Sooner or later. in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I remember my favorite grass-stained overalls with the light blue butterfly embroidered on the pocket, my bare feet on the damp grass, the feeling of the wind, it tasted like sweet perfection, flying through every single strand of hair on my head as I chased the fireflies that danced in the evening air. I remember the old, rusty swing sets, and how if I got up in the air high enough I could touch the exact place in the cloudless sky where the earth itself curved, though no one ever believed it. Back then, I remember laughing every second just because there was once a time where optimism wasn't a challenge. Back when real friends weren't an endangered species, but a bubbling well, filled to the rim; when family was a single unit, not split into shards; when the biggest worry I had was people stealing my favorite scarlet-colored crayon after I dashed to the potty. Simple.
Paper Towel LoverI should've known by the look in your eyes;Paper Towel Lover in Free Verse More Like This
The way you eyed me was sharp precision.
Searing me in half and staring straight into my soul.
Those strikingly blue eyes made for killing
And I was your new prey,
A wounded animal stuck gawking into the headlights of a speeding car.
Your smile should've set off some alarms.
The slight curving of suspicious lips
Murderously captivating me with a set of well said words.
It was breathtaking really;
That dark, mysterious, poisonous grin that you gave to me
Or rather, let me rent for a couple hours.
I should've realized by the way you held me;
The way your hands latched on at my hips
Screaming "This is mine,"
Trapping me against you
As you pulled me in by just another lustful kiss.
By then, you think I would've grasped that I was your paper towel lover.
Easy, affordable, disposable.
The perfect type for one like you.
Raindrop JamboreeSo I sat there, looking out an open window watching and listening to the symphony of raindrops pour over the night and thinking about overwhelming things that I'd never thought of before that shouldn't be mentioned ever. I can't quite remember why, maybe by now I was tired of thinking and didn't have a reason, but I floated downstairs in a dream and I was standing by the back door but wasn't it really a portal into another world? A portal and I had my hand on the doorknob but did portals really have doorknobs, or locks for that matter because when I tried to pull it open it resisted me bullheadedly. Realizing such, my hand found the indentation of the deadbolt in the blind darkness and as I turned it, only slightly to the left, it clicked in smiling satisfaction.Raindrop Jamboree in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

"You don't control me, Brian." Zacky looked at his boyfriend. Brian stared back hard. "No matter how many times you tell yourself you can, you can't." His voice was low, stinging venom.
"You know that I don't do what I do on purpose. I don't mean it." Brian stared at his shoes, defeated. Zacky stared at him, his eyes seeming to burn holes through his body. He didn't like that feeling; he felt like Zacky was looking at his soul; weighing his heart against a feather.
Zacky shook his head. "If you don't mean it, then why do you do it? I've had enough of it. You make me feel awful about myself in so many ways. You were right the other night. Avenged Sevenfold would be better without me. So I'm going. You and the guys won't have to deal with me another day."

"Zacky! C'mon, I ain't got all day! Are you gonna come swimming with me or not?" Brian called to Zacky, who was standing in Brian's bathroom, staring at his reflection in the mirror. There were black and purple bruises all over his body, some big, some small. They were mostly on his torso or on the tops of his arms, around his shoulders. Places that could easily be covered with a shirt. There were also small cuts in some places. Places that weren't fortunate enough to get bruised.
How could he go swimming? He couldn't let Brian see all the bruises on his body. Brian didn't know what his dad did to him. No one did. And he wasn't about to let anyone. He decided to just put a shirt on. A black t-shirt. A white one would reveal the cuts and bruises if it got wet, but a black one wouldn't.
"Zacky, I'm waiting outside for you! Come down when you're ready. I'll probably be done in the pool by the time you are!" Brian called. Zacky heard the back door shut as Brian went outside to

Ethan James was walking home when a group of kids from school drove by. They started shouting at him. He blocked out all the names that they were calling him. Suddenly, they started throwing things at him. Bottles, cans, anything they had in the car that was disposable and could be thrown. Ethan started swearing and picked up speed. Before he knew it, he was running down the street, toward his home.
He turned down a road and ran a bit more before turning again and running into his yard. He looked behind him, but the kids were gone. He sighed and fell against the side of his house. He slid down and sat on the grass. He lifted his hands to his hair, and pulled.
"Dammit, I can't take it anymore!" He shouted. "I can't take it anymore," he said quieter. His green eyes welled up with tears. He dropped his hands and stood up. Then, he slowly walked into his house and up to his room. He sat on his bed, staring out his window, and cried. "I can't take it. I just can't take it."

She dropped the flower on the ground and studied her hand. There were several small cuts, but nothing to worry about, so far as she was concerned. You know what, Vincent? Maybe you shouldn't touch anything else while we're here.

We were made for each other
But not in that way
You roll your eyes whenever I'm embarrassing
And it's okay
'Cause you always harass me
You're always by my side
And I by yours
We're flying through our lives
But the ground is always below
When we'll stop
We don't know
You were the shining knight
And so was I
And so we'll be forever
Riding side by side
We're stuck together
Always me and you
It's not just one and one
Because it's always two
That's always true
Summer will never end
'Cause we don't want it to
We're best friends

Her mouth a ghost of a smile
She didn't know why
But she could feel something change with him
He was always there
Just like the other
But unlike him
He's not just her brother
He always makes her laugh
Even when she's on the edge of crying
She forgets when they first crossed paths
But the path will go on forever
She lets something slip
She holds her breath
But as always he's oblivious
Is she comforted or disappointed?
They have similar dreams
They would go good together
She pictures the scene
Of them living together
They'd get a modest flat
He likes New York
He said he'd like to see Scotland
Even though it'd be overcast
It'd be sunny sometimes
And if they'd just hold each other fast
It'd always be good weather
She thinks this might be the guy
That she'd toss off her parachute for
To fall would be to fly
If they'd have each other
She shakes out of her fantasy
Looks at him
Realizes it's not that easy
It's still too complicated

I lived in the south, and then moved to the north
I met a boy my age, along the way
He lived next-door, he came over to play.
We talked for a while, I liked everything about him
From the way that he laughed, to his gigantic grin
I turned to him, and this is that I say;
'When I become queen, you'll be my king one day.'
He took this to heart, and without any fears,
He fought to get me this, throughout many years.
He had lots of courage, he hocked up his pants
He put me in a basket, and took me to France.
I killed the queen, and he killed the king,
We replaced the positions with him and me.
He said that he loved me, he said it was true.
Then I responded with "I love you too."
