upper story. High above. Up. Tenement buildings, filthy, grimy, gray. WIndows, shaded, none can escape. Upper levels. Men in suits looking out over their peasants, toiling on the smelly city streets below. Empire State Building, snow, cold, beauty, wind like you wouldn’t believe.

We all want to be above. I got so high. He fell from his perch. On top of it all. Upper class, upper hand, above, over, high, UPPER.
I think “lower” is underrated.

Her upper lip trembled. No. No. No. No. This couldn’t be happening. The tears rolled down her face as she knelt next to his lifeless body. They found him. They were looking for her but they found him instead.

In the upper reaches of the atmosphere
there is a cold, cold wind blowing.
And oh, it chills the bones
and makes them brittle
and that is why we break
When we fall from the sky
the wind whistles through the holes in us-
the ones we are born with
and we spend our whole lives

I wish I had given you an uppercut, one so bad that you couldn’t say another awful thing again.

Sitting here thinking about how much longer I have to be at work I wonder what’s happening on the upper floor of this building. Surely some sort of rehearsal. Barre is over, and I can’t hear any music. Maybe they are working on a new piece.

I love the upper east side. It’s where I buy my upper’s. they get me high as a kite.
The uppers make me a better lover. I make love for hours and hours

the upper middle class is where many people lie today in our economy. especially the people i know. we are not the wealthy, nor the poor. we are comfortable in our upper middle class. and it does not mean we are the “upper” or “lower” people, we are just people doing the best we can to get by and be happy.

The low growl sounded closer.
“Where do you think it is?” Jan whispered.
“Somewhere on the upper ridge,” Will replied, “Follow me. I think I know where we can go that it won’t follow.”
“Follow? You mean it’s following us?”
Will watched the shadows around them as he led the way along a seldom used trail.
“It’s hungry,” he replied.
Jan looked quickly behind them.
“You mean…we’re dinner?”
“Only if it catches us,” Will stated, “Come on. I think it’s just ahead in those

The uppercase letters were shouting the nonthreatening response it spelled out. “I LOVE YOU TOO” I scrolled down to escape the blaring words in hopes to find something with proper punctuation, but on facebook, chances were slim to none.

In the upper space where we live, there is a chair, with the flowers i gave you,with all my love in it . You may say i am a fool, but i am not the only one. I hate when you walk away, i cant follow you .
Never leave me behind. I hope you never leave me behind.

Just when you think you have the upper hand in life, everything comes crashing down.
You think you’ve finally caught up after being sick for so long? Assign a project. Think you’ve got plenty of time to visit colleges and plan your future? The due date is in a week. You think that everything seems peaceful and easygoing? Cue the superfluous drama. There is never any reprieve.

The bill of the the duck was crushed, raw pink chunks were scattered along the deck. The first mate glanced from the steering column to the captain to the rigging where the waterproof compatriot had plummeted just moments ago. “What the fuck was that?”
“A duck. It was a duck and now its dinner”

You can’t tell me I’m not one of you! I belong at this club by virtue of the sheer amount of money I’ve spent tipping the valets to park my Jag. Tell ME I’m low class. I am the very epitome of upper class!!
By Sean Duffy URL on 10.14.2012
the upper loft of my room had always been a place of mystery and wonder for me. Shadows lurked in unlikely places and they always wanted to play. They taunted me, running away as soon as I could catch them. One day momma locked the door to the upper loft, and I could no longer see my friends.

She had the upper hand and she knew it. Never again would she speak without meaning.
He was less than before.

The uppercase letters seemed to be shouting at me, despite the nonthreatening message it spelled out. “I LOVE YOU TOO”. I scrolled down to try and escape the blaring words, hoping to find something with correct punctuation. On facebook however, these chances were slim to none.

the top and less commonly known. Those who earn the most and look down at those below. An expensive liquor that probably doesn’t taste better. A book you can’t reach on a shelf you don’t use. Something you may or may not see

Stiff upper lip. And try, really try, but in the end it is futile. There are those times, when despite the circumstance, one must cry.

take my arms as a sacrifice
allow this ritual to be one we repeat
oh, how you welcome me is ever so sweet
I have heard that when you stare up into the sky
it is impossible not to smile
perhaps that is why i am in love with you

upper class, the hierarchy in society that was characterized in the 192o’s as exceedingly superficial, selfish, and egocentric. Upper, the upper layer of skin, the largest organ of the body that protects from all. i guess in both senses it is superficial…

getting all of my work done. productivity. feeling like i am dating a wizard at a disco biscuits show. writing resumes and cover letters, research projects that are 67 pages long. super fast, super fly, super woman. Won’t stop, can’t stop. Mike Tyson quotes also come to mind.

upper layer of skin, protects us like the rooted trees that surround us.

Upper, way higher,
There i am
But under the sun
Always upper than me,
Higher than us

turtlenecks, red leaf earrings,
she wishes he’d reach over for her hand.
but instead he gestures to the waiter,
we’ll take a seat on the upper floor,
on the balcony.
she sits watching him watch the late night view
oh, look at the lights glittering across the hills to the sand
those tides kissing the shoreline under blackened skies
but how could being together feel so apart?
but she keeps her hands in her lap and bites her lip;
he glances over at her and his face lights up
she’s with me.

higher level of elevation, where are you headed? well that would be the question not mentioning the questioning itself to find yourself questioning what is the highest elevation?

The upper end of the shelf was a desert of dust, each precious object positioned far out of reach to those in the world below was blanketed in the sand of the years, masked and for the most part, forgotten.

Oh my gosh I am so not in the upper level with this site. I am kind of freaking out and I know this sucks. I’m sorry! I was caught off guard with this.

It was a part of me. The upper cliffs spilled onto crashing, white waves. No one came here in the early morning. Alone, I left my shoes on the high land and allowed the water to swallow my feet whole. I felt free against the rising sun, and I ran with the ebbing an flowing of the tides. I needed no one, and no one needed me.

That side of your mind where thoughts go insane, it takes all your fears and they go down the drain staying layered in unconscious fermented allocations demented to be ridden of your every moments oppression taking seconds from the minutes of every hour of your life, but don’t worry, its alright.

“Oh man,” Tom said. “My upper lip. God, it smells like carrots. I haven’t had carrots since 1978! The war…”

we were roaring. screaming. saying so much in our bursts of hot breath that there was no room for words. we’re all just so connected, the unwatched, the pushed. we’re all just so typical that it burns the skin. and i want out. i want out of this unity of the broken. give me the strength to destroy this universe i’ve been shocked into and swim to the upper world. give me an alternative.

The upper part of my face was on fire. I had gone from feeling perfectly fine to feeling sick in an instant. If only this mentality would fly out like the vomit that is surely on its way.

Above, higher than. Upper, Up up and away. A house can be a do-er, upper, places e.g Upper hutt. Upper jaw (i just had some of my upper teeth out). Mary Poppins “lets go fly a kite”.

upper case letters are like grown up to me. i never really feel like they are needed. they just control the sentence. what if i want words before you suddenly or even after. i don’t need your authority mister upper case. you can not control me.
By Mariah URL on 10.14.2012
Upper means not a downer. It doesn’t ruin your good mood or make you sad. It is having a high, but that doesn’t always have to mean drugs. Uppers for me are runner’s high, laughing with friends, and unforgettable moments.

The ball plonked down on the rough fake turf and Lance looked around. The third level of the golf complex was teaming with Japanese males of various shapes and sizes and incomes, though not too low of income. Balls were rocketing out from underneath him as the players on lower levels practiced their shots.
