  6. Rice stalks grow and grow, pieces of green grass and light flowers develop and spread until they choke themselves on the air. Even then, they keep growing.

    Maybe they are too afraid to stop.

  8. You come home one day and your family is no longer your family. I don’t remember exactly when it happened. They laugh the same, talk the same. They look the same. Something intangible to the naked eye has shifted. It’s not that you don’t make the effort to try to keep things the way they were, but you might as well be smashing a star shaped block against a square shaped hole. Something no longer fits in the picture, and slowly you realize it’s you.

    You begin to wander, drifting around in a creaking old jalopy as it sputters it’s protests at you. The parts don’t fit exactly right. It needs a new paint job. It leaks oil from time to time. Sometimes it refuses to start all together.
    “I’m tired!” it moans. “Why-hy-hy-hy are you be-hee-heeing so difficult?”
    You jam your key in further and slam your fist against the wheel, as if that’ll get it going.
    “I don’t know what else to be.”
    It roars into action as if acknowledging it’s been beaten, screeching into the night.

    You continue to drift, searching for other lost souls. You peer into their eyes, searching for that spark of something. The spark of sameness. The spark of sadness, of solidarity, of solitary. The spark the spark the spark. Always searching for something. Never satisfied with what you find – if you find it at all; always looking for the next answer.

    Story of my life.

    Sometimes you find them. The bond occurs almost naturally, as if you’ve known each other for aeons. You can almost hear the clicking as the pieces of your conversation fit together. You complete parts of each other. Both basking in the other’s weirdness, you drink it in with desperation. You feed off each other, reveling in child-like wonder at the possibilities the other possesses. It’s never enough, but it’s enough for now.

    Most of the time the eyes are dead. The spark has gone out, or was never there to begin with. With soft words you lay them to rest, and slowly detach yourself from them as gently as you can. They don’t understand why.
    “What did I do?” they ask.
    “Nothing,” I reply.

  9. Separate as a verb. I guess that’s depressing. It shouldn’t be. Going your separate ways is often the healthiest choice to make. It’s just often difficult to do. It hurts and sometimes it’s ugly. But in the end it’s better.

  10. It had been too long. Far, far too long. And yet when their eyes met, it was like yesterday. The great chasm dissipated, the separate pieces merged to one.

    They reclaimed their being. They took back their own. They collided into worldly existence. They were no longer undone.

    He kissed his pale lips, the ones he’d come to know, the ones he’d so longed for, the ones that were his once more.

    “I love you.”

  11. in our bathroom my husband and I have separate sinks. Sometimes this is a good thing (actually most of the time it is a good thing). Because we can brush our teeth without crashing into each other.

  14. Always too far apart. Never together. Why must we be forever separate?
    They don’t understand that I cannot survive without you.

    They never understand…

  15. welll to be honest seperate means away from each other in other words not together because the word separate originates from the word derived from the greeks other wise know as sepr fate lololol

  16. They were separated by a change of heart or by chosen fate. One never knows – or just does not want to admit. They thought they would never see each other again, that they would forget about each other and live in different places. Worlds even.

    One day, however, they met again. They joyfully spent the rest of their lives together and cared for each other more than ever. Never would they be separated again. Their bond was stronger than ever, thanks to separation, for reunion can only exist through it.

  17. I need separation. I want my own creative space, high ceilings, bright lights, and white walls. We don’t flow together creatively. I can’t do this. I feel like by holding back from my expressionism it makes me small and dull. We need to separate.

  18. Amelia and Mels sat in the very back of English class, talking about the Raggedy Doctor. Rory was sitting right by them and was trying to get them to be quiet because he was trying to concentrate on the teacher.

    The teacher was doing her best to ignore the two girls. She was succeeding, until Amelia let out a loud giggle. The teacher stood up.

    “Amelia, Melody, do I need to separate you two?”

    Amelia and Mels shrank back sheepishly. “No, ma’am,” they said in unison.

  19. when things are apart, or people are not working together. When magnets push apart. When we do things on our own. To split things into their different parts. To pul people apart when they are fighting. Splitting an egg yolk from its white. Couples in different beds

  20. don’t separate what belongs together. otherwhise you will mix everything.

  21. I think that everyone wishes, secretly, that they didn’t have to go to work, that they could focus on that one passion project that will make life worth living. But it gets hard to separate leisure and work. Photographers can’t always do it, it gets tough to make your art your work. It’s the same for writing. It’s only easy when you’re not getting paid.

  22. The teacher quickly separated the two boys who kept fighting, which was the third time for this week.

  23. When is is time to separate from your past and create a new you?
    When you grow up is probably the right time to stop blaming others and yourself
    and find the true you who has been hiding inside and burst out into the world.
    That’s what I think.

  24. I am conflicted.
    I am living two lives consecutively.

    A Lifetime and a Lifetime.
    They never agree,
    And each doesn’t like the other;
    How can this be
    If they have the same mother?

  25. Separate, but equal. Is that what Erik wanted? Does he think if they give us a separate state we will be equal? They won’t. They’ll still look down on us. Children would still be killed before birth and after for their genetic mutations, for being born at the wrong time, in the wrong place.

  26. We live separately now. Not divorced, never that, but living separate lives. The cats handled it well, no problems although they undoubtedly missed each other. Sometimes Fluff cried at night and Purr often sat in Fluff’s old spot on the sofa, his tail curled around his nose. Sometimes I dream of him, my husband, and miss him.

  27. Separate me from my fate. It’s not real, it’s not supposed to be.
    Nothing is ever set in stone, right?
    I’m not who it says I’ll be.
    I still have time to change it.
    Separate me from my fate.

  34. pronounced two ways: sep-ret, and sep-uh-rate. Two separate words. And the clue to how not to misspell it: it has “a rat” in it.

  35. there was a void missing from my life. being sixteen was supposed to be good but instead it was as if the strings inside me broke or the seas parted. something happened with detached myself from all that was around me and meant i was never going to get it back. i wasted precious time with an ache in my heart i couldn’t understand and tears in my eyes for someone who was nothing in the atomic expanse of the universe.

  36. Jellyfish legs, thinning and breaking, Smuckers thinning, the panels of fabric pulling apart, a wide and widening V of empty. I can see light through the holes of the stitches, and the disconnected lines, the dots yawning and unconnected. White light behind the felt, furthering entities against a silver desert sky.

    By Heather M URL on 05.01.2012

  37. thought you are there
    and I am here
    our hearts, our souls are not separate
    we cannot be driven apart so easily
    we cannot be outside one-another’s existence
    you are my life, my breath
    you are the smile on my lips
    the warmth in my chest
    between my thighs
    you drive me to live
    to become a better woman
    to open myself and expose my soul
