• AnnieB commented on the post, collapse 3 years, 6 months ago

    I collapse
    Slowly
    Watching him walk
    Away

    I collapse
    Away from his arms
    A lost love
    A lost life

    I collapse
    I’m alone
    I collapse
    It’s too dark to go on

    I collapse
    I miss you
    You’re gone
    And I don’t want to be alone

    I collapse
    And I scream
    I collapse
    And wish for you to come back

  • AnnieB commented on the post, genetics 3 years, 12 months ago

    I had always known that my genetics weren’t good. I got the mousy brown hair, eyes too big for my face, and a habit of being overweight and not being able to fix it no matter how much I tried. I didn’t know that my genetics were so bad that I was bound to be sick most of my life, and that I would struggle to have kids, and when I did, they would…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, shattered 4 years, 4 months ago

    He was all that had ever made me happy. Just three minutes earlier, I had told him that I wished I had time to just slow down and enjoy the moment, to which he replied I had plenty of time. Feeling his hand in mine, I took a deep breath and my world was perfect. Watching him drive away, my world shattered to pieces

  • AnnieB commented on the post, spilled 4 years, 4 months ago

    I spilled my thoughts, no regard as to what all I was saying. he had asked me a simple question, but the kind look in his eyes made me want to talk. The way he asked, and the way he looked at me as it all came out, I knew that he was willing to listen and that IO could tus him not to say anything to anyone else. I told him everything I was…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, stratosphere 4 years, 4 months ago

    I slowly came back to this stratosphere, the crash feeling like it was going to kill me. I had never been so happy in my life, or felt so free. I wanted to go back to that other place, this place was not the one for me. Now that I knew how to get what I wanted, I was addicted, forever, and I never wanted to change it, or him.

  • AnnieB commented on the post, credibility 4 years, 5 months ago

    He didn’t have a lot of credibility. We all knew that he didn’t belong there, and that the fight was his fault. Yet, when the police wanted to question him, I came to his defense. His credibility went up with my story, and I knew that I had just changed my life forever.

  • AnnieB commented on the post, burrow 4 years, 6 months ago

    Watching the small animal burrow back into the ground, I wondered what it would be like to live life like that. If every time something remotely larger than me came near, I felt the need to burrow away, hide until I felt safe again. To put myself in a life of dark solitude because I was to afraid to come out and say hello to what could be the…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, cliffs 4 years, 6 months ago

    Looking over the cliffs, I knew I was where I wanted to be. His arm was around me, gentle but firm. The sun was setting far off over the cliffs, and the wind was blowing. We had been here most of the day, and while we were tired from walking, I was reluctant to leave the solitude of his arm and the open space.

  • AnnieB commented on the post, geometric 4 years, 6 months ago

    Math class, geometry. I am in that this year. I wish I could pay attention and actually do good in the class, but there is one guy in there who keeps me from doing that. Geometry really isn’t that hard when you can look at the front of the room and see the board, not just slate grey eyes. Not just a smile that is ever present. Wish geometry could…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, flour 4 years, 6 months ago

    Standing in the kitchen, I was getting bored. I had been there for three hours, making dinner for the family. I was done with main meal and working on desert when my husband got home. He worked all day, then went to the gym. Since I knew he would be wearing nothing important, I kept my back turned put grabbed a hand full flour. I waited for him to…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, listening 4 years, 7 months ago

    I wasn’t sure that he was listening. I said his name, and said it again. There was no response, and when I glanced at him I saw that he had fallen asleep. My words stuck in my throat as I thought of all the other times I had found him to not be listening. All the conversations I tried to have, things I wanted to say and to talk about. That was…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, bricks 4 years, 7 months ago

    In my mind, there was a think brick wall. I had built it years ago, a shield from all the situations I had been put in, or put myself in. I had been hurt too many times. Then eh came along and broke my wall, brick by brick, building a pathway to my heart. Him and I were connected, and this time, I just knew that my wall wasn’t needed, that things…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, terrain 4 years, 7 months ago

    I was on an entirely new terrain. I wasn’t sure where to step or what to say. I had never been to this place before, never been in this situation with these feelings flying around inside of me. Time seemed to slow down and speed up all at the same time, and when he reached out and touched my face, I knew that I would be just fine on this terrain,…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, signals 4 years, 7 months ago

    I was getting all the signals, and I wanted to take them. But I was scared. He meant so much to me…I didn’t want to risk hurting anything. Every time he looked at me, though, there was something more inside the look. And when he winked and licked his lips, when he laughed and joked with me, told me stories of his life. I had the signals, I just…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, weakling 4 years, 7 months ago

    This child was a weakling, with many things yet to learn. I was unimpressed, curious as to if I was that pathetic so many years ago. My fellow marchers had the same vision and thoughts, and all we wanted to do was yell at the kid. I decided, in a split second, that I was going to be nice to the kid, because I saw myself standing there, being…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, instill 4 years, 7 months ago

    I wasn’t trying to instill anything negative, I was just telling the truth. A question was asked, and I was going to give an answer. I knew that later I would regret it, and that more than likely, I would be in trouble, but in the moment, I didn’t care. All I cared about was telling the truth, the straight truth.

  • AnnieB commented on the post, conjured 4 years, 7 months ago

    When the man looked me in the eyes, a new feeling conjured itself inside of me. I had never felt it, and it was nearly indescribable. I think that the best way to describe it is like I was floating, above the rest of the world. His look held so much emotion and pain, so much love that I couldn’t breathe, my mind nearly shut down. I was over took…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, cave 4 years, 7 months ago

    I have only been in two caves. Once I went very deep and look at the stalactite and feeling the running water, enjoying the darkness in the shadows that could harbor a multitude of oddities that I couldn’t see, because I was too scared to go to the corners, and because when you get too close, the strange things disappear, equally afraid.

  • AnnieB commented on the post, fatigue 4 years, 8 months ago

    Fatigue, extreme tiredness. After a long day of work or school, coming home and cleaning, then making dinner, and bathing the kids, he was struck with a undeniable fatigue like he had never felt before. He just wanted to go lie down and stay there for days, sleeping or not. Just doing nothing but looking at the ceiling, listening to the silence of…[Read more]

  • AnnieB commented on the post, willed 4 years, 8 months ago

    Some people are strong willed, and some are weak willed. Some people just have no will what-so-ever. My will is different from yours, and yours is different from anyone elses.
