luggage

My luggage is packed.
The city is ransacked.
I danced on the embers of a fallen nation.
It was my idea of a fun vacation.

instrumental

The violins whine as the group of friends dance around them, smiling as they sing to its sweet melody. It’s a beautiful song that speaks for itself. The high notes represent the joy while the low notes represent the melancholy. In other words, it is the song of life and it is what we’re dancing to, even now.

And now I wonder, how is your song?

upright

I sat upright in my chair, terrified about what the vicious monster they call my teacher was going to do to me. Im my palms, a shallow pool of sweat was starting to form.

hallowed

The Mediterranean coast is hallowed ground. The ideas that originated have been germinating for millenia and have given root to our own culture. The people have changed but the body of water is as eternal as the earth itself.

pins

they are prickly little bastards… especially when you sit on them. i had an awful experience just the other day. i was at my mumma’s place, and she was feeding me a piece of cake and a cuppa tea…” sit down ” she bellowed… so I did, right on her sewing kit.

heartache

i wondered with a little flitter
hoping she might come away from twitter
she looked around, gave a glance,
but in the end,
I was all but a meaningless dance.

duration

the length of time between one event and the next. what happens between such occurences that causes such a disheartening dilemma to develop or at least it would appear in my mind. to my heart. to this soul it dims the very essence of what i thought it meant to be. here i am. alone and naked. the way i will die. the duration of my life seems to me an eternity.

belief

belief is complicated. i dont know what i believe, i know what i used to but ive since met people who make me doubt my past beliefs. i dont really know if i believe in myself anymore, but i’m trying.

walls

I’m sitting amongst 4 of them. They’re all kinda yellow, but 2 of them are vanilla ice cream yellow, and the other 2 are like a light straw color. Kinda calming walls for an office.

I didn’t have walls in my last office. Well, that’s not entirely true. I had cubicle walls.

beehive

lots of bees, buZZing, stinging, honey, cartoons, trees Jerry Seinfeld, sunny grass, flowers, green, black and yellow.

hinge

A lot of the day-to-day decisions I make hinge on a single factor. For example, today I’m foregoing working out because I need to go to the police station to take care of a traffic ticket.

fences

The red fences dotted the suburban landscape. Nobody knew why the fences were painted in such an obnoxiously uniform color, but they never questioned it and carried about their daily business year after year.

scarce

Food was scarce. My sister and I were the first to get whatever food my parents got a hold of, but we had trouble deciding which of us got to eat. “No,” she would insist, “You need to have it.” And I would take it reluctantly, until her composure was too frail to stand anymore.

liberty

People are afraid of losing their liberty to some all-powerful government. This possibility begs the question: what is liberty? Is it the freedom to do as you please – to think, live, desire whatever you choose? Or is it the feeling that you opinion matters in a group consensus?

runway

Down the runway and up into the sky in a matter of moments. When I look down on the clouds, I decide that I never want to touch ground again. There’s nothing but problems down there.

crisp

The cookies looked more crisp than usual when Suzanne pulled them out of the oven. However, when she took a bite she realized that this was only true in appearance – that they were in fact as rich and soft as they were when her mother made them. She was, after all, following her recipe.

sparkling

Drunk on sparkling cider, I stumble through the dark residential street. Some men in their early 20s are chatting across the street. It’s a house party.

bland

It was a very dull day,
while it rained on the plateau
the food is tasteless
and the news is boring

bland bland bland. I can’t think of anything to say about such a boring word. The sound it makes when I say it describes the definition of the word perfectly.

savage

The savage gallops through the rocky crevice at inhuman speed. His bare feet are callous to the rocky floor, and the only thing on his mind is the blood he smells somewhere up ahead.

lilies

A bed of lillies might be softer than a bed of roses. I don’t know because I’ve never tried. I’m not even much of a flower person; I couldn’t tell a lily from a lilac.

dozen

The man had a dozen fingers. Most of his acquaintances didn’t notice, even when they shook his hand, unless he pointed it out. Still, he was self-conscious; he couldn’t help but think about it as a deformity. The kids in grade school had not been kind to him. By the time he was middle aged, he was pretty thick skinned about a lot of things.

Fantastic Frying Frollicks! The baker carefully placed each fattening holey goodness in the fryer right before my very eyes. I’ll never forget the way they sizzled from the moment that the grease touched their outside.

A dozen bluebirds flew past the barn window. My eyes raced to follow them to the nearest tree, where the twelve little friends commenced in landing in perfect unison, each finding the just right amount of space for them to land.

apron

The stained apron the waitress was wearing reminded me of childhood. The way the mustard, ketchup and avocado mixed and mingled on what was otherwise a blank white palate reminded me of the fingerpainting I used to do in homeroom.

thorns

The thorns in my foot slow my gait. The underbrush is another one of my enemies-I can feel her breathing underfoot and I know I can’t trust even the ground I walk on.
