Love left my heart,

I hated being alone and torn apart.

I cried each night and people didn’t know,

Then, I saw him.

Love was slowly creeping back in,

I’m afraid to let it in.

I’m afraid of getting left behind again.

I’ve been hurt so much.

I’m afraid to love again,

He’s my best friend .

I want to let him in.

But I’m afraid,

I’ll get left again.

He was my only friend in 5th grade,

It’s almost six years later.

We are still best friends, 

He’s been there for me through thick and thin.

He’s picked me up when I was down,

I love him and I know he loves me too.

I’ve always been his,

Even when I didn’t think I was.

He’s the boy who has my heart,

I have his!

Butterfly Reborn

Love tore me up inside,
How it lied and broke my heart.
Then I met him and he smiled,
He said hi and made me sigh.

Something was different,
Love has been gone so long.
He asked me, “If I could be his?”
Of course, “I said yes!”

He hugged me and warmed my heart,
He kissed me and it lingered on my lips.
I’m his special girl and he is my love,
We are all one of a kind now!

Our Dream Dance


By, Crystal S. Kauffman, Staff Writer

Dedicated to JD

Missing your arms and touch tonight,
Our song floods my ears and entices my mind.
I close my eyes and picture a time when,
We had it all, because we had each other.

I never thought I would be feeling so alone without you,
Dancing together in my dreams and kissing your sweet lips.
Your love changed me in ways that you will never know,
Do you remember the way we met and the nights we shared?

I never felt so in love with a person before I met you,
Remind me of the way, we lost ourselves in each other.
I need you now to just smile and say something clever,
However, you are a dream now that I meet each night.

We were so close to finally having what we want,
Being in love with you took my breath away.
I gave you my heart so many years ago,
I force a smile when my heart is shattering.

How do I reach out to a memory that has faded?
Do I ever enter your thoughts and your mind?
The pain shows me that you were mine once,
My heart hasn’t healed and there is nothing I can do.

Praying and crying won’t bring you back to me,
It has been so long, since we ignited that everlasting fire.
All the feelings we felt and the nights we spent together.
Came to an abrupt end and that is what truly hurts the most.

My First Kiss


By, Crystal S.Kauffman, Staff Writer

first kiss 2

Tonight I am in exotic bliss,

Since, I experienced my first kiss.

As you walked me to my door,

My lips begged for more.

As I say good night and climb in bed,

A full moon is shining overhead.

My heart is dancing with delight,

This will be a memorable night.

No one can change this magical day,

For you left me with so much to say.

My life will never be the same,

This first kiss will always remain.

Advice Corner

I would like to teach others that there is an author in everyone. Everybody has a story to tell. My best advice for new writers is to just writing, but make a plan first. The story will lead you and you may touch someone with your words. The new writer will find out this is a journey of blood, sweat, and tears. However, when someone reads your book, you will still be humbled. Take a chance and show others all about your story or write an awesome fictional tale.
