alumni

We joked about which alumni would show up and how different each one would look. Do werewolves get grey hair? Does the zombie decay into bits and pieces on the floor? This should be interesting!

the salty reminiscence never seems to cease.
if they were the best years of your life, you have not learned to live.

whole

what once was whole has a bite shaped mark. the apple is scared and the juice is run out like the rain pouring down outside.

wand

burned by magic, the pretty pretty princess learned that her dreams would never come true. “there are no such things as fairytales, ophelia,” he said.

swept

I’ve swept my problems under the rug. I think about brooms when I see ‘swept’. Almost sounds like wept. Past tense of weep. Wonder why a broom would weep. I like the ‘sw’, that makes a very pleasant sound in my opinion.

control

the wheel spins out, the tires skid. impact. shock. slam. pressure. snow rushes in through the broken glass. wrecked. there is no more control.

chocolate

sweet. too much. i like the bitter. can only stomach the darkest. small pieces at a time of anything so sweet as the regular milk version. bitter black coffee is my drug of choice (ironically with sugar). does that make me an ‘un’-stereotypical girl?

coward

the song… hang me up to dry, i’m pearly like the wh wh whites of your eyes by cold war kids… I’m a coward but i got close enough to see his eyes and now i know he’s afraid too. he just hides it better.

dropped

one dropped call,
one shoe astray
one button missing
train delay.
the longest breakdown
heard in days.
an old ashtray
and coffee stains.
one more story
one more ‘no tip’
the last dropped tray…
i guess you could say it was one helluva day.

eggs that bear the burden marks of her shock. if only she could have held it all steady, nothing would have been dropped.

endless

endless oceans- tides that slide, worlds colide. endless work and endless pride. the words that i typed in my favorite typewriter- they are endless- long after me, people will still write.

discover

discovery chanel- then the national geographic one- home of freaky shit you never needed to know… but fascinating all the same.

discover the truth. ignorance is bliss- but only half the time. choose wise- hindsight will shed light. but only far too late.

phrase

a phrase is a phrase- is a common daze- a whiteout haze- a brand new phase- just a simple short sweet phrase.

notice

i’m not too blind to notice… so i say. and so i thought. but maybe i am. and maybe i should have said something sooner. i hope… well, i just hope.
that it’s not too late or too hard for my apology.

split

split- betwixt- the inbetween. nothing’s pretty here- like split pea soup. and it’s all slipping out of your grasp- like a banana split, or at least the peal.

wishing

believing, hoping, stars in the sky, sometimes too much to think of.

» Posted By Selena On 12.29.2010 @ 3:15 pm

new year wishing, wistful, wanting, desire, need, a new start.

mythology

it’s a myth-bound to be false.

alter

Lay myself upon the alter
Bear it all
Cross crash- falls
Falter
Splashes water
Holy born
Lay myself upon the changes-
down upon the alter.

paperclips

paperclips hold it together- unlike paper cuts- torn so easily.

cannon

the cannon blast was felt even inside the borders of what we thought was a safe place. the walls are broken. our defenses no more. whatever happened to home?

typewriter

uninspired, but there all the same.
the letters in the box
typed so careful but full of mistakes.
i love my old typewriter
even though
it’s so unforgiving

boa

boa constrictor or pink fuzzy feathery boa… i think it has glitter in it too

stick

i sat on the front stoop of the old broken house. i was poking that poor ant with a stick. again. my brother had just given it a rest and left but for some reason i just couldn’t go. so i sat and stared. only a little bit blankly. mindlessly torturing an ant.
i feel minor guilt now. :/

wrong

wrong is to right as shoe is to hand.
thats a bad example.
maybe thats why so many people have a hard time getting it right.

immense

hills like white elephants- the things left unsaid always cause the most damage. hind-sight is perfect.

copper

the old copper pot was worn. it sat on the stovetop on the right corner burner as always, but things were different. you could feel it in the air. without her here in the house that we called home, everything felt cold.

understood

it was understood. a tacit pact.
He wouldn’t touch the pie and I would take him to a movie later, or a water park. or something. as long as my little brother entertained himself for five good blessed minutes… there wouldn’t be an issue.
it was just understood.

science

science like physics class. my calculating errors slay me and it changes how i see the world. i cannot decide whether or not it’s a good thing, but it makes things more interesting.
