Summer Twilight
The trees black out to make way for the sunset.
The colors paint the sky.
They add life, add character.
The breeze gently nips at me,
inviting me to play.
"Oh, what fun to be had!" it says.
As the breeze invites me to play,
The smoke from the fire pit dances around me,
filling my lungs, inviting me to dance.
Oh, summer twilights, so full of life, so full of fun!
But the fun has only begun,
even as the horizon kisses the sun.

The Carnival Freak Show
We don't look like everyone else
We don't think like everyone else
We don't act like everyone else
We don't see things like everyone else
We are all different, but in one thing;
We are not normal,
We are "freaks"
We don't fit in.
But that's just fine.
The carnival is looking for those like us.
We'll ride the roller coaster of abnormality.
We'll ride so fast on the spin cars
We'll purge up any hint of sanity left in us.
We'll crash into each other in the bumper cars
And laugh ourselves delirious in the funhouse.  
So Let us watch the clowns make balloons for us.
Let us taste the cotton candy and corndogs.
Let us smell the popcorn being made
Let us listen the the balloons being popped in the nearby midway.
Then, at the end of our fun-filled day in the carnival of madness, 
We'll be admitted to the freak show,
Where we shall show our beautiful strangeness to the world.
And like magicians, we will perform the most amazing magic tricks for them.
Some will sneer, but others wi

Wonderland
I have a world of my own
Where everything is nonsense
It's a place where reality is simply imagination
And imagination is simply reality.
It's a strange, unique place
It takes me when it wants me
and lets me go when it's ready.
My world can be a scary place
But it never hurts me
My world holds me hostage
But it likes me.
Sometimes, my world will let go of me
But my world will always draw me back into its arms.
Oh, Wonderland, how I love you so
But I just can't stay forever
There comes a time that I must say goodbye
I promise to visit you
But you must promise me to let me come to you.

Literature
Among The Stars
Sometimes, I gaze up at the stars
wondering what it would be like to be among them.
just free and floating, where boundaries don't exist
To go as far as I please
Farther than Mars
Sometimes, I gaze up at the stars, 
Wondering what it would be like
To let the lack of gravity take the air from my lungs
And let the cold vastness of space surround me
I'd let myself drown in the openness
I'd dance on every moon
I'd weave in and out of every nebula 
Oh, how I anxiously await the day that I shall be among the stars

Dear Diary,
I think I need to hang around other girls more often. Felicity's mom is a professional photographer, and she offered to pay me to put on different costumes and do photoshoots with her. Well, in light of the Christmas season, she wanted to do a "Santa's little elves" shoot to put on her website. So Felicity and I dressed up in little elf costumes. It was pretty fun. Thank goodness I was able to wash all of the make up off my face. Her mom is also thinking about doing a winter fairy photoshoot as well. If my brother found out, he wouldn't let me live down. I can imagine all of the wise cracks he would make. Come to think of it, most of the boys in my life wouldn't let me live it down! Ugh, what is it with boys and their teasing!? Why can't I just be left alone to my own business!? Okay, to be fair, I know that rarely do they intend to be rude when teasing and it's just their way of socializing, but you never know. At least I don't. A lot of the girls in my school are st

Dear Diary,
Back from Thanksgiving break. I have to practice for that Christmas party that my parents signed me up to play at. The party is going to be at Harvard, and I know my parents are trying to "show me off" to the higher-ups in the music department to get me in good standing with them before I even hit high-school. My parents have been doing the same thing with Aaron since he was my age. He's already practically been accepted into the Harvard's astronomy department. Mom and Dad keep saying I'm headed for Carnegie Hall soon. Carnegie Hall is where the elite of elites in music go to perform.  Gee, I'd like to at least get to high school before I start thinking about my career! Why can't adults let me live my life one day at a time? I already struggle getting through the hours sometimes, I don't have the energy to think that far into the future....

Dear Diary,
Sorry I haven't written in a while, I've just been so busy. Today was the last day before Thanksgiving break, and I've been getting ready to spend the break at my aunt and uncle's.I managed to cram all of my Thanksgiving break homework in one night. It was long and tiring, but at least I don't have to worry about homework for the rest of the break. I do, however, have to worry about my younger cousin Heather. Don't get me wrong, I love her to death, but she's so rambunctious it drains me! And Aaron won't step up to help me handle her, he just leaves me to my own devices and I have to find a way to entertain her on my own! God, please help me to find a way to calm down that lovely, restless child!

Dear Diary,
I hate being restless. Honestly, I get overwhelmed with just life in general, especially in School. Trying to keep up with the advanced academic standards in school gets me overloaded, then trying to deal with Tyler, Dylan, Michael, and Travis also sets me on edge. I kid you not, when I get too restless, my skin feels all creepy crawly and I get so uncomfortable in my own skin I want to tear my skin off of me. Then my imagination takes dark, violent turns and I start imagining all the blood pouring out of my body where I'm ripping the skin off of me and I imagine the worms under my skin falling out onto the ground. Oh diary, what should I do about this!? I already have bad scratch marks on my arms I have to hide that actually did bleed! Maybe I should try cutting my nails. What do you think?

Dear Dairy,
Aaron is hung over, as I expected him to be. I just told mom and dad that he wasn't feeling well while I snuck in a bottle of water, saltine crackers and aspirin with a note that told him that he owes me big time. I'm going to have a talk with him once he feels better and he's less likely to want to murder me for making any sound. I still have to think of a favor to cash in....hmmmm... What do you think would be a good favor to ask of him? I don't know, I guess I'm just upset because I've always seen my brother as a brilliant, independent, strong-willed person and it shook me to see him so pathetic and helpless.

Dear Diary,
I have got to remember to eat something right before bed! If my blood sugar crashes while I'm asleep, I get really bad nightmares and I end up screaming in my sleep and wake my family up. Well, I had one of those nights. I had a nightmare that I was in my biology class and the teacher gave us all water bottles and had us all drink from it. We

Dear Diary,
I'm finally home. Darren and Trish helped me get on the right subway this time. Darren gave me his cell phone number in case I ever wanted to text or call him. I just might. Mom and Dad were very very happy to have me back and I couldn't apologize enough for letting my phone die on me. I told Aaron not to breathe a word of this to his friends at school, because word will get around and you would be surprised at the things these people will hold against you!I'm home sick with that sinus infection by the way. You know, last night was a very humbling experience for me. You would usually think that it would be people like my family helping people like Darren and Trish, but this time it was the other way around. I guess it doesn't matter how rich you are, everyone can be vulnerable and in need of help. And it doesn't matter how poor you are either, you can always be helpful to others. I suppose I learned not all of those who are poor are drug addicted hoodlums either. In

Dear Diary,
Sorry I haven't written in a while. Nothing really interesting has happened in the past 5 days since that first kiss incident. But The boring streak sure broke tonight! Prepare yourself for a very long story, my dearest friend, I'm going to write all about this one in detail.  So I wasn't feeling well at all the whole day, and I just kept getting worse and worse. My ears felt all filled up, my nose kept running, my head and face both hurt. Well anyways, I just couldn't bring myself to wait 2 hours for my parents to pick me up after school to go home because I ran out of snacks and I was already feeling sick, so I decided to take a subway home. Well, right when I told my parents I was going to take a subway home, my phone died on me (yes, I was kicking myself for being so stupid as to not charge it the night before). Well, I walked to the nearest station and got on what I thought was the right subway and  I guess I zoned out. That's one of the first signs th

Dear Diary,
You would not believe what just happened today. I'm still shaking a bit and feeling nauseous from it. I just had my first kiss today, but it wasn't magical in any way. It was scary and humiliating! See, it was right after school and I was at my locker getting my stuff out, and the three boys I talked to you about, Tyler, Dylan, and Michael came up to me and offered me an Ice Breaker mint. I accepted the offer suspiciously. They are usually rather cruel to me, so I had a feeling something was up. Tyler took an Ice breaker and chewed it and told me to do the same, all the while Dylan and Michael were snickering up a storm like they were about to carry out a brutal murder or something. I started getting really nervous at this point. Tyler then asked me if I've ever kissed a boy (or another girl) before, and I told him no. That's when I put two and two together. The mints, asking about my first kiss, and the snickering. Once I figured out what they were going to do, I tr

Dear Diary,
So Felicity had her first period today. She told me it happened in PE. Thankfully, the girl's locker room comes equipped with pad and tampon dispensers, and she had a quarter handy so she got one from the girl's locker room and didn't even tell me until lunch. I asked her if she needed a change of underwear, and she said that she didn't bleed enough for it to be a huge mess. She managed to get "stuff" in time. Like wow. I heard getting that lucky your first time is quite rare. All I've heard are horror stories of how dramatic and traumatic a girl's first period is and how  everyone ends up knowing and you get blood everywhere. But Felicity was like a ninja about it! She was just so calm and collected about it. I asked her how she was handling it so well and she said that she knew the day would come and her mommy told her what she should do when it happened so she was prepared. I haven't got my first period yet, but when I do, I'm going to follow her example. It

Dear Diary,
So three things. One, my parents said they're okay with me doing a photoshoot with Felicity's mom. Two, Lynette, Kate, and Taylor are totally cool with being characters from Alice in Wonderland! So we all agreed Lynette will be the white rabbit because she's bubbly and bouncy (it just fits her so well!) Taylor is going to be the Cheshire Cat because she's a troll with a sarcastic wit, and Kate is going to be the Queen of Hearts because she's feisty like that. I'm soooo excited! And the third thing is kind of random but I gotta write about it anyways. So my parents told me the story of how they met. I know, I'm 13 and this is the first time I've heard the story. It's really weird but fascinating! So apparently, my mom was finishing her undergraduate work, and my dad had recently got his master's degree. He was her professor for one of her classes in her last semester. He had been secretly attracted to her since the beginning of the semester, but he obviously refused t

Hey everyone I have a new blog! www.melanieswriting.godaddysites.com! Check it out! 
The trees black out to make way for the sunset.

The colors paint the sky.

They add life, add character.



The breeze gently nips at me,

inviting me to play.

"Oh, what fun to be had!" it says.



As the breeze invites me to play,

The smoke from the fire pit dances around me,

filling my lungs, inviting me to dance.



Oh, summer twilights, so full of life, so full of fun!

But the fun has only begun,

even as the horizon kisses the sun.
We don't look like everyone else

We don't think like everyone else

We don't act like everyone else

We don't see things like everyone else



We are all different, but in one thing;

We are not normal,

We are "freaks"

We don't fit in.



But that's just fine.

The carnival is looking for those like us.



We'll ride the roller coaster of abnormality.

We'll ride so fast on the spin cars

We'll purge up any hint of sanity left in us.

We'll crash into each other in the bumper cars

And laugh ourselves delirious in the funhouse.  



So Let us watch the clowns make balloons for us.

Let us taste the cotton candy and corndogs.

Let us smell the popcorn being made

Let us listen the the balloons being popped in the nearby midway.



Then, at the end of our fun-filled day in the carnival of madness, 

We'll be admitted to the freak show,

Where we shall show our beautiful strangeness to the world.

And like magicians, we will perform the most amazing magic tricks for them.

Some will sneer, but others will gawk in awe at us.



For you see, the "freak show"

Is really just a "talent show".

And we are here

To make the carnival a more exciting place to be.
