I stare at my beside table vacantly, the bottle of pills glaring back at me. My heart does this little stop-start, and I gasp in a quick breath. The pills let out a laugh, making me cover my ears and lean over so far my knees touch my chest. A hiccup-like noise passes through my parted lips; God, I'm so pathetic sometimes! Still holding the sides of my head, I stand and walk to the window. I smile as I look out, seeing you waving to me from the outside. I return in, but as I acknowledge your presence, you vanish in a puff of smoke. A frown, something almost permanent on my face, creeps into my features as I turn away from the glass.
I run a hand through my black hair, a heavy sigh fleeing my chest. I go to the mirror on my dresser, and take in my checked pajama bottoms, dirty black t-shirt, and unkempt and filthy hair. I huff out a breath; something moves at the ve

With a shaking hand, I brushed the flop of black hair off his forehead. He swatted my hand away; he hated my fussing. My daughter, just five years old at the time, tugged on the hem of my long-sleeve shirt. I picked her up and kissed her chubby cheek gently while her short legs hugged my hips; she giggled at my affection and pulled softly at my locks of fiery red hair. Chuckling, I poked her nose and looked back at the frail boy in the bed.
He'd been discharged from the hospital only days ago, so he could spend his final days in his home, a place he knew and was comfortable with. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to die in a strange place. All I knew is that I'd never want to die that way, in a hospital bed with stark white all around me. It must be a lonely way to die.
I glanced at my watch; where was he? He was always late, I swore. My daughter buried her face i

A jacket is clutched between my shaking hands. It's black and made of leather, lined with fur on the inside. It's warm, the jacket. But I don't wear it. I can't. It's not mine to wear.
The snow is sticking, even to the paved trail, and it's already standing halfway up my shins. The lower parts of my jeans are soaked, my sneakers drenched. I can't see very far ahead through the snowfall. I trudge on, though. I know exactly where I'm going because well, because I go there all the time. It's the only place when I can see my boyfriend at ease. When he's not slurring his words or fogged with whatever he is on for the week.
Then, I spot him, my boyfriend. He's slumped over in front of the grave, shaking and wet and so tiny looking. I hold the jacket up to my red cheeks, hoping to warm them as I step closer. I look at the tag on the inside of the collar, and read the name scrawled there. The handwriting is undeniable, even after it's been almost half a year since the la

I remember when I first saw Frank. I thought . . . well, I thought he was weird, honestly. He was the kid that sat in the back of the classroom with his head down all the time. He never took notes, or read aloud, or volunteered to answer a question or run up to the board like everyone else did. He was always kinda subdued in the way that I thought he was going to burst out in tears. And as it turns out, he always wanted to. He just never did, until one day, when we were in the sixth grade.
He was sitting behind me, in our assigned seats. I turned my head back to look at him and saw he had his forehead on the edge of his desk, as always, but his face was illuminated by the screen of his cell phone, which he had hidden under his desk. I watched, rather helplessly, as a tear slid down his nose, off the tip, and down to spatter on the screen. He was crying.
"Frank?" I whispered.

Frank's eyes were shining gently as he stared over the edge. Gerard, sitting in the seat across from him, chuckled softly at the smaller boy's fascination. Things were going just as Gerard had planned. His best friend was intrigued by the heightened view the Ferris wheel provided them. Frank giggled and leaned out over the edge a bit; Gerard watched through half-lidded eyes. The high school senior thought the freshman was utterly adorable. Up until then, on the Ferris wheel, Gerard had no trouble hiding how he felt for this boy. But now, being close enoughand aloneit was hard to deny the flutter in his chest and the quickening of his breathing. Gerard felt his face flush to a shade closer to fire truck than sunset whenever Frank would spare a glance in his direction.
Frank slipped; alarmed, Gerard forgot of his attraction for a brief moment and lunged forward. His
