My name is Rachel. I’m from NC and I love writing. I’m not good at this kind of thing because it takes me three pages to explain an idea. So I’m hoping to expand my limits with this website(:

Thank you for your criticism!

  1. What Pain Does (pt. 2)

    (continued from part I) Pain will make you grow up very fast But not give you the chance to grow very tall at all. Pain will linger on your breath And follow you like a dark cloud, And the worst part is, You have no refuge. Sure, the lucky ones find te...

  2. What Pain Does (pt. 1)

    Pain changes you. Pain screws with you. Pain makes you different. Pain fucks you up. And I’m not talking about some sappy emotional pain. None of that. I’m no wimp. I’m talking about the kind of pain that sends you to the floor. Pain ...

  3. Fawn

    It’s like someone picked me up Spun me around and uncovered my innocent eyes I’m dizzy I’m still recovering I’m still recouping I’m a newborn fawn, blinking in this bright sunlight that bathes me While I still struggle to stand on my feeble l...

  4. Happy Place

    The raindrops chase each other down the windows and thunder rumbles in the belly of the clouds, just outside these thin walls. My head gingerly rests on his chest, rising and falling with each breath of his, tuned in to the resonant beating of his hear...

  7. Insignificance

    My name isn’t important It isn’t going in your books It isn’t going in your scriptures My face won’t be remembered It won’t be in the papers It won’t be in the pictures But I know when I’m terrified In the dead...

  9. Morning Jog

    I don’t know if I’ve ever had a “runner’s high.” Apparently, running is supposed to make your brain produce endorphins and you turn into a euphoric ball of energy. Maybe it’s overdramaticized, or maybe I’m miss...

    Babe I know it’s 3 am but won’t you join me on my escapades I’m running low on inspiration nowadays All I see is the black, dark black of the pavement You’re my only inspiration nowadays

  11. Letter to a human

    Dear human, You’re getting it so wrong. You’re supposed to feel pain. It’s how you know that you’re alive. Without it, you wouldn’t appreciate the good feelings. Live. It’s possible, but only if you keep living, that...

  12. Happy New Year

    “What time is it?” “11:57.” “Wow, already?” “Yeah. You know what band’s up right now?” “No idea. But they really could have got someone better.” “I don’t know. I kinda like t...

  13. It's nothing.

    “What’s wrong, babe?” he asked. For once, he didn’t try to make a joke out of it. He didn’t try to play around. He just sounded concerned, worried. “It’s nothing,” she said, forcing a smile. Because it re...

  14. Tapping

    There’s a brief tapping on my window. I don’t worry- it’s not loud enough to wake anyone, and soon he’ll give up and return to wherever it is he goes at night. I wonder if maybe I should give in. At least once. It’s not li...

  19. Urbanized

    It looks eerily luminous in City. If I didn’t know any better, I would think it was cheery, up there in the scrapers. “I don’t know how they breathe without the sun,” you say, reading my mind. A sultry summer breeze swirls aroun...

  20. Just Once

    She stood before a faded oak door and unlocked it with shaky hands. Jacob greeted her with a caress and pulled her inside. They were alone together in a silent, dark, empty room, accompanied only by a solitary candle. Jacob and Rose made love for the f...

  21. Wannabe

    I had to do it. I’d been trying to be one of the populars ever since fifth grade. I begged my mom to put me in cheerleading and ballet and tennis and basketball with the cool kids. I drank what they drank, smoked what they smoked, dropped my grades, ...

  23. Gummy worms

    “What? No. Gummy worms taste like rubber,” I say. You laugh, that deep, deep laugh that bubbles up like sunshine. But I can tell you’re not really here. Sometimes I wonder why I try so hard to make you laugh- you’re always so se...
