• Gabbie commented on the post, library 4 years, 11 months ago

    The library called to me, each book whispered my name. Their voices all distinct but each one familiar in some way to me.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, library 4 years, 11 months ago

    Stacks of books piled up around me. I sit in the room where the books go before being re-shelved, the disorder and chaos here match my current mental state. The order of the rest of the library is too much for me now.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, sacrifice 5 years, 11 months ago

    The sacrifice he made coming to visit me. I know he has things to do, I know there’s work, school, his own life but still he came. And that had to mean something right? He came and that’s what mattered to me and hopefully it meant something to him. Hopefully for that hour he was […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, succeed 6 years, 2 months ago

    Finally, I had reached the end of the line and all I could think of were the last words he had said to me, “In order to succeed, you have to give it your everything, otherwise it won’t feel like success at all.”

  • Gabbie commented on the post, wings 6 years, 2 months ago

    The wings sprung from my back allowing me to rid myself of the burden of walking. The prison of being trapped on the ground instead of flying free in the skies where I belonged. The sun on my face and the wind rushing through my wings.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, limo 6 years, 4 months ago

    The wind rushed past, the cold air numbing my face while the tears streamed from my eyes ruining my carefully applied make up. “Fuck it”, I thought, I’m having a blast and I kept my head out of the sunroof of the limo.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, domestic 6 years, 5 months ago

    My life revolved around the domestic details of my household. When did I turn into the person I despised? The kind who let her husband control her life until al lI did now was cook and clean the house. Twenty years ago I didn’t even know how to cook, so much for the plans I […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, tempted 6 years, 5 months ago

    He stood there with his back towards me and I behind him resisting the temptation to reach out and touch him. He was no longer mine, despite my not having had a say in he matter. I was tempted to just hug him and kiss him and beg him to stay, but his mind was […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, glowing 6 years, 5 months ago

    Face glowing with sweat, she shone with the look of a great workout. Having just left dancing she was exhausted but felt accomplished that finally she had nailed those fouette turns.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, bones 6 years, 5 months ago

    The cold wind blows an I shiver deep down feeling the chills at the core of my very bones. He wraps his arms more tightly around me trying to transfer his warmth all over me. Still I shiver. He holds me closely and promises that one day we’ll both have our sunlight.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, console 6 years, 5 months ago

    He leaned on my shoulder, the tears falling from his eyes and sobs heaving out of him. I wrapped my arm around him and rubbed his back in a soothing way to console him. He hiccoughed and turned his tear stained face to look at me and solemnly asked, “When fish die, do they go […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, crew 6 years, 5 months ago

    I’m not even going to try and be creative and artsy with this one. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this word was an old dancehall song from way back in the day. I think it was by elephant man but I wouldnt swear, and it went “me and my crew […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, birth 6 years, 5 months ago

    I sat down and watched the sun come up. Tears dried on my face and my eyes felt scratchy. I had spent the entire night crying because he had left me. The love of my life was no longer that. But somehow I didn’t mind that, in fact to me it seemed to be somewhat […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, heel 6 years, 5 months ago

    The heel of my stiletto pressed against his chest and he told me to apply more pressure. He was a definitely kinkier than the guys I normally dated, but he was also the most amazing, both in and out of bed. He was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, camp 6 years, 5 months ago

    I thought about life as I looked up at the stars. I was at camp, the same one I’ve been going to for the past six summers of my life and this would be my final year here. I thought about where I saw myself going and who would be involved. Never in a million […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, bandana 6 years, 5 months ago

    Keeled over, projectile vomit forcing its way out my system. He held back my hair and rubbed my back. Tears streaming down and I’m heaving over the bucket then he hands me his bandana to wipe my face.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, clover 6 years, 5 months ago

    A field of clovers stretched before me and I wondered if I’d find the lucky one. I remember my Dad telling me how he once found one and later that same day he met my Mom. He still has it dried and pressed in an old bible of his. He’s kept it all these years […]

  • Gabbie commented on the post, chorus 6 years, 5 months ago

    Noises rang out, the cacophony of seagulls on the shore, their choir providing the chorus and hymns for that hallowed area of the beach.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, deadbolt 6 years, 5 months ago

    The door was locked. The deadbolt on the other side was drawn and I couldn’t reach it to slide it across. I wouldn’t be able to get in, not today anyhow. I would have tome come back some other time to discover what was on the other side.

  • Gabbie commented on the post, trailer 6 years, 5 months ago

    “Trailer trash”, she yelled at me. I was six and she was seven and she was my best friend in elementary school. Just because I wouldn’t give her any of my candy she called me that name and ran off to play with Suzie. She loved coming to visit me in the trailer park and […]
