  3. strung
    across my room
    are christmas lights
    and little paper girls

    dancing across my white ceiling
    in a soft shaped arc

  7. I’ve been strung along this path for so long. Working my days for hours on end, trying to make ends meet. Trying to make anything meet. Trying to make meat. I am a butcher.

  9. The balloons were strung, in no particular order, along the side of the house. Clara stepped into the view frame of everyone waiting for her at the party.

    On a banner above her head, were the words: Our Clara Beat Cancer.

  13. Christmas lights strung from the tree,
    It isn’t the same anymore.
    You aren’t here to sit in your chair,
    to laugh at dumb cartoons us kids loved.
    You aren’t here anymore,
    and soon it will won’t feel like Christmas anymore.
    I will soon wake from this dream.
    The only place where I can see you.

  14. I’m strung out on the words you used say to me. The words that once soothed my soul, are now crashing over me with an intensity I cannot stop, killing me, slowly. I miss your words, I miss your everything. You and me, we make sense but now nothing seems to fit.

  17. Strung together like a set of curious furious notes.
    Chords strummed, no struck like keys at the piano.
    Thoughts click, click, click in unison, in motion.

    Oh, so was not like the one, when at age five, I wrote.

  20. i strung up the lights hesitantly. i knew she didn’t want to have Christmas this year. but she said to do so for my sake. i know how hard it must have been to have lost a father, a mentor, at such a young age. Christmas would never be the same.
    After all the lights and decorations were hung up on display. we sat there in silence, just taking in each others presence and trying to find the words to say to move on from these recent events.

  22. plucked like a string
    strung upon a guitar
    that mighty breath
    that moment in time
    first strum
    goes so slowly
    that smile just a memory
    a distant shadow
    lurking in the crevasse
    your drunken rivalry
    with no one in particular
    played out in music
    which only you
    and maybe should be only you
    can hear.

  23. Strung out, out of bounds
    Out of wack
    Shivering up your spine
    Still electric
    but still and stone

  25. My friend Ashton gave me big bloopy Mickey Mouse themed Christmas lights for my 16th birthday. Ashton worse mismatched socks, one bright orange, another white with red stripes. Everyone commented on her cuteness. My then best friend Ashton was cute and remarkable in countless ways, so I don’t know why she had to do that sock thing. The Mickey Mouse Christmas lights, I mean, gasp, Disney?, was just a little too uncool for uncool-cool. Fifteen years later, this weekend, my mom salvaged them from a dusty box and strung them atop the bathroom mirror of my two-year old niece’s room at grandma’s.

  27. strung bungalow duckhunter fence. a pearl-tipped rapier wanging the horse boots. guilty cloudcover darkening your day, rain’s on the way, strung up wet and flopping. remember the senses you experience in the pond mush, remember the quack of your shoes as you walk onto the kitchen tiles.

  28. I was so strung up on the idea of being with you that I couldn’t even see the reasons behind why it was such a fucking stupid idea and I’m sorry. I’m sorry for not listening to anyone that tried to stop me. I love you. I don’t care. I’m strung.

  29. He was sitting there with his guitar, alone. It had already been restrung twice and he had no idea what to do next. That’s what was so odd about Daniel. He could fix things but had no idea how to use them. Playing the guitar was as much a mystery to him as the question of why humans exist.

  30. All the beads were strung together to make a beautiful red and silver necklace, which Sylvain happily presented on Father’s Day. She ignored her older brother Terry’s derisive snort of laughter, but his words still bit deeply into the sweet six-year-old’s ears.

    “It’s jewelry,” he scoffed. “Men don’t wear jewelry.”

    But her father did wear the necklace. He wore it every single day for a month until it broke.

  31. And she was strung up by the simple strings of a pupateer. Trained to dance and smile and pretend she was okay. Strung up to do what everyone said and obey no matter what. It was sad really, what society trained her to do. What the saddest part was, was when she realized I was her.

  32. I’m so strung out these days, I don’t know what I’m going to do about my life. I’m a senior and have to start thinking about my future, but I just can’t rap my head around the fact that I will be on my own….

  33. You Cut out her heart
    Put it on a string
    She was your puppet
    From the very beginning

    You could’ve been nicer
    But you were always drunk
    Your numb mind couldn’t decipher
    That she’d been sunk

    You were too conceited
    To see through the facade
    So her,you treated ,
    As if she could withstand all

    You knew it was wrong
    That She deserved better
    But that didnt stop you
    From breaking her forever

    Yeah you strung her along
    Not looking at the cracks
    On her abused heart
    And all over that mask

    You thought she’d let you go
    But she holds on to that string
    Newsflash:
    She’s not as strong as you’d think

  34. Today, I was wearing my shoes just after coming out of a temple and suddenly I heard an old man saying: “Yes! That’s the right way, step on the place where your supposed to sit!”, it so happened that I was wearing my shoe putting my right leg on the bench, It strung-ed me what he was trying to say and when I looked towards him, he was actually telling that to his grandson, and it worked on me too!

  37. It was a sense of being. To be strung. Not drawn and quartered, but still highly strung with tension.

    The half mark makes for light.

    The half moon makes for dark.

    Sides to this coin are flipped and flipped.

    Oriented by gravity, I watch it spin. Determine rotation then snap decision.

    It is a hunch, perhaps something of…

  38. She was high-strung at best, fidgety and wild. Her eyes were wide; we could see a frightened rim of white surrounding her iris.
    “Well,” said Mr. Collins, patting her soundly on her sweaty flank. She jerked away. “She may not look like much, but on the track, she’s the fastest horse there.”

    We didn’t doubt it.

  39. I was strung out to dry. She didn’t want me like I thought she did. She had just been using me to get closer to my friend. I felt so betrayed, but I was pretty happy when my friend turned her down for using me so shamelessly like that. I didn’t like her keeping me on a string like that.

  40. My heart is but a knot
    tightly fastened–an afterthought.
    Strong Willed,
    memories unfilled–
    A lonely island in the middle of the sea.
