  1. In that moment i realized that Alexe had as much of a defense to others as I did, and was used to being heartbroken. I felt bad for the man. It wan’t his fault, he just wasn’t attractive to other women. They wanted him for his money, fame, and influence to the modern art world. If only those women had opened their eyes and saw what a wonderful person he was, they would have been truly astounded. it wasn’t about his physical appearance, with the scars on his face and such, he truly was a beautiful soul. And I loved that about him. I sobbed softly into my sheets. I needed to apologize right away. The problem was, i had no clue when i would see him again.

  2. The young boy was hapless as he walked to the principal’s office. He knew he was in trouble AGAIN. No matter how hard he tried, he always seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He hoped that maybe this time would be different.

  5. Current state, a state of myself. A state devoid of neutral self help. A lesson unlearned, a wish I endure. A choir of those lessons I conduct in my head. And now, involved in this motion, this song, I end.

  6. That same night I was feeling hapless.
    That feeling you get when everything goes wrong.
    So many things happened that night and I sensed that it wasn’t going to end.
    I had ran out of luck, just as I ran out of you.
    I couldn’t embrace the feeling of uncertainty because I always thought we were forever.

    Now I know that feeling unlucky was helpful because if everything went right I would have never got to experience sadness or loneliness and those feelings are the ones that helped me understand that the little things in life matter more than you.

  7. Hapless: A word I honestly don’t know the definition of. Maybe it has something to with negativity. It almost looks like hopeless. But almost like a mix of that and happiness. Would that make a happy medium word? It’s not happy or sad? Well, I hope to one day learn the meaning of this word, because if it is sad, I hope to never use it again. But if it’s happy, I hope to use it all the time.

  9. they call it a race; a competition to win
    a prize of blonde hair, of freckles, fair skin
    I lost before birth, trapped in the Great Wall
    I keep my eyes on the ground so you won’t see they’re too small.

  10. we sat their hapless,
    staring at the stars.
    we made clouds into shpes in our minds,
    and the grass never seemed so soft.
    hapless, hapless, hapless.
    sit and still no motion.
    Sometimes it was nice not having to do anything,
    haplessly sitting around.
    moments we enjoy the most in life.

  14. Hapless.

  15. funny how hapless makes you think of pity. i give it to others often, i never want it. we crave sympathy, but we avoid pity. sympathy makes you feel you’re not alone, pity makes you feel hapless. weak. fuck weakness, we say. i am strong. i am bold. i am in control.

    we can try, we can try. stop trying? good luck

  19. with a bump
    and a swoosh
    another plate was destroyed
    with a squish
    and a bang

  20. my friend is a snakeskin
    slithery slipping away
    she sits along with all her collectable daleks
    hapless unhappy
    heart full of artless artifice
    she chokes when she tries feel emotions
    emoticons instead, and disinterest

  31. The crickets chirped through the crisp night air like a willow rustling against the small, seamlessly beautiful stucco wall. I wasn’t exactly enthused about the letter on the nightstand, but I wasn’t going to let it lay under the lamp’s sleepy glow without at least giving it the benefit of a once-over.

  32. hapless means we are both crying into pillows
    and i still have your hoodie but of course you’d ask for it back so you could silence the gunshot sound with it
    hapless means i am always sorry for the visions of you dying
    wondering if you will forgive me even though you don’t know.

  33. Sometimes, it’s the hapless events that lead us to the right places. The ones that break your heart, the ones that leave you lying in bed at two in the afternoon, wishing you had the energy to make it all stop.

    But these hapless moments, they will change you.

    Over a year from that day, you will be sitting on a couch with friends. You will have work to do, but you decide that it can wait until tomorrow. There are wine coolers to drink and diets to be broken, all in the company of friends, laughing at some ridiculous comment.

    There are presentations to create and meetings to prepare for, a never-ending pile of work. It would be wise to keep working, but at that moment, you decide to take the night off. You may regret this the next day, but for right now, you are celebrating.

    You made it.

  38. 16 years ago I did a very foolish thing: I fell in love. A hapless victim of wishful thinking, I quickly got consumed by the fire of that first love. It was a fire that would rage on and on, that is until 6 months ago when he left me. Its funny, when we use to live in this beautiful city, I remember the choppy water looking blue, today its pitch black.
