brisk

It was a cold brisk morning and Kyle had woken up early to walk slowly to school ad listen to the birds and watch the kittens play at the barn

stampede

This word reminds me of the Lion King because it was the scene where Simba’s father, mufasa died. the saddest part of the movie. Stampedes can be created by all types of animals but particuraly large and dagerous animals creating a dangerous envrionment for all other organisms in the way. Stampedes create a sense of fear in any oncoming orgamisms and can be harmful.

mothering

It was a fine work of mothering, really. She was angry, but the anger dissipated and she was so rational. Trying to cow me into revealing all, little did she know I was vulnerable but still devious. I still kept my secrets, even though she kept my flask.

mirage

it’s just a reflection. Nothing is real anymore. Even as you say the word, you know it’s true. What you see is just your own wishful thinking that roused from your sub-conscious and manifested in a ghostly form before you. You know it can’t be real, yet this is the degree to which we humans control the universe; we will our desires into being – that is power. Yet our curse is that our willing only produces shadows – the minute you reach out to touch it, it’s gone.

biblical

You said, when I first met you, that you had been assigned summer reading. “I’m reading the bible.” you said, and I wished you luck.

Now I wait by my mailbox, I wait for your letter, I hope it is long and says lots, and contains a bracelet of your handiwork. in rainbow colours.

tousled

My first kiss was with a guy with tousled hair. I think that might have even been the reason I kissed him, because I just wanted to run my hands through it. I can’t remember how it felt though, all I remember is the feeling of his lips on mine, and the weakness in my knees.

piano

I remember coming home, and playing piano for the first time in
five weeks
I had cried when I had come to sit in my room.
Then, playing, I felt as if I would never be sad again.

hell

I really don’t think that this is an appropriate word to give to fourth graders. I wish there was a way to skip to the next word and try something different because it really makes me doubt that this website is one that I can use with my students. When will sixty minutes be up because I’m really self conscious about that fact that this word is written in large letters on my computer screen and that it isn’t going away!

Hell is a place I want you to go. I want you both to go, there.
and I will smile sweetly as you make your descent, and finally you’ll realize that you missed your queue,

one time too many.

Am I spiteful?
Maybe.
Unkind?
Perhaps.
This passive-agressive stance is the only one I can take in face of your cruelty.

efficient

In my work I meander and in my free time I’m lazy and this life isn’t efficient and all of the time I’ve been gifted is squandered or must of it anyway

measure

I am constantly comparing myself to others. On paper, online, in life.
And I need to stop, because every day I feel it eat away at me a little more and a little more.
I don’t want to become nothing.

scuba

My small range of dance moves leads me to this, but it is okay because tonight, everything is ridiculous. So I plug my nose with my fingers and shimmy downward, my free hand waving like seaweed. And you, smiling, join me.

complexity

the world is complex. people are complex. but most of all, high school is complex. there’s so much shit going on that we don’t have time to just be kids anymore. it’s all signing up for horrible clubs that might look good on our college resume, or hanging out with people we hate because they’re the so called popular kids. it makes people physically ill to walk through two stupid doors into a building that calls itself welcoming and open. yeah, school is the most complex shit out there.

bluegrass

Everything is green in my fantasies, the grass is rich and lush.
You wrap your arm around my waist, so soft it makes me blush.

intrigue

I silently walked down the hall. Not know what to expect. I could feel him pulling me, it intrigued me. Knowing that he was so close but just out of reach.

I was intrigued to find that a small box on the coffee table upon ariving at home one night after working a 19 hour shift at the dinner down the street.

wilting

The flowers in the vase were wilting. The yellow petals tinged brown at the edges. The Leaves drooped and were staring to fall off. Everything was rotting.

footage

He stopped and looked at the footage that he’d captured. Her brown hair was slightly wind-swept, brushing across her face. She’d made no move to stop it, but rather kept her eyes down and lidded. He wasn’t sure if she knew he’d been watching her; wasn’t sure if she felt his len’s gaze. Did he care? No. She looked up and their eyes met. Life was about to begin.

beckoning

The sea was beckoning to me, as if it knew me. I had never known Him as the sea, only as the rain.

polar

The polar ice caps are melting. I don’t really know what that means. I just hear it said once in a while. Does it mean the polar bears are running out of ice to stand on? Are they desperately dancing on a ever shrinking piece of ice?

unwritten

think of all the unwritten stories of people
the mothers who lost their children
the politicians breaking down in the bathroom
people lost
with their memories
unwritten
stories to be told
someone just has to write them

wistful

She sat in the heat of the summer rays, a fan in hand and a cold glass of lemonade sweating in the grass. The wind blew the soft scent of fresh cut hay and she dreamed of living away from there. Dreamed of smelling the salt spray of the Indian Ocean or the frigid Arctic air of Siberia. She had the wistful sense of wonder usually allotted to the rich and powerful who could travel the world on a moment’s notice. She sighed and turned her eyes toward the sky, breathing in, and smiled.

creative

Everyone is creative if they try hard enough. Creativity isn’t based on how much work or how amazing the project is, it’s how proud the person is of what they’ve created, how much thought they put in it, how much fun they had, and if their expectations were matched. If someone is happy, it’s worth it.

instant

shells

the beach and sandy shells the water splashing and waves crashing all around me. the sunset at the beach the sand in between my toes the strong smell of the sea and the warm touch of the sun. looking and digging in the water for water for beautiful shells.

pixels

Pixels are small elements of technology consisting of three colors. A multitude of these tiny image components make up an electric, eccentric and vivd image. They are gorgeous renders of photographs and facilitators of photography and cinematography.

flee

today i wish i could just flee down a rabbit hole and not deaal with any of the things we deal with in our silly lives. i wish i could find a way to make everything in my life right, but maybe the only way is just to flee.

coach

My coach yelled at me during practice. Oh, what it must be like to be a favorite, like our catcher over there.

All the other girls have Coach bags. I want one, so badly. I saved up my money for one, but I had to buy some cleats and I have no money anymore. Oh, to fit in.

We visited Charleston. I rode in a coach. It was pulled by horses. Well, really it was a buggy, but I liked to pretend it was a coach, like the cowboys used to ride in. I wish I knew a cowboy.

Coach Coach Coach
Such a word
Such meaning
This how I feel
This is my life
This
Is
High School

fools

I am a fool…but not because you called me one. But because I believed you when you did. I thought you were right, so I acted the part and I played it well. But over time, I learned that I’m not one. In fact, you all are the fools…for putting me down and laughing. You’ll see.
