• Shink commented on the post, miraculous 5 years ago

    you loved me you loved me you loved me and in your arms in the little orange tent I loved you back. How come I always cry when the moment should make me smile? How come you didn’t say it first?
    The sky was dark that night.

  • Shink commented on the post, reader 8 years, 6 months ago

    As a reader she had become accustomed to getting a book aout and skimming it for the sake of a paper or perhaps a class discussion. Rarely do schools each you to read beyond the grain and between the lines. Perhaps many authors write their works as more of a plee or a message or […]

    The shore is such an interesting place. Between what has been and what might be. Lighthouses along the shore offer us a small view of that future, but the rest of it is lost at the horizon.

  • Shink commented on the post, whiskers 8 years, 7 months ago

    Scruff. I’m not such a fan. How can we get close when you’re five o’clock shadow gets in the way. Or maybe that’s why there there, the way I use my sweater as a barrier getting between our skin. We don’t have to feel too close now…

  • Shink commented on the post, blast 8 years, 9 months ago

    “To the moon!” he said, when asked whether he would prefer 10 years alone in space or 5 with a random person. I didn’t say it, but I would pick 5- what if the person turned into the person I wanted it to be?

  • Shink commented on the post, saved 8 years, 9 months ago

    It’s ironic that that’s what I need. “How sure are you that you’re going to heaven?” they ask. I want to know, though, how sure are they that they’re seeing the heaven on earth?

    I don’t know quite where to go. How can I fill the cup more than half-way with knowledge. Or is it even a cup at all?

  • Shink commented on the post, spike 8 years, 11 months ago

    the bulldog is named spike, at least I think it is. I don’t have any school spirit at all. How can you be loyal to a bulldog, especially one with no connection?

  • Shink commented on the post, brave 8 years, 11 months ago

    They say the warriors were the brave ones, the ones who made all the difference by going out to hunt for the tribe. But perhaps Singing Owl and Laughing Star are more heroes than the warriors will ever understand…

  • Shink commented on the post, science 8 years, 11 months ago

    It’s unrealistic to believe the world comes down to chemistry, really. Your ability to believe this doesn’t even compare with your ability to love, to effect change and to be happy.

  • Shink commented on the post, balloon 9 years ago

    A red balloon on a long black string, it can mean more than a great deal of horrible things in the world. I think the news should focus more on balloons than less on war, in fact.

  • Shink commented on the post, meaning 9 years ago

    I don’t know what it is, this “meaning of life”.

    Life. What is that?

    Of. I think I can cover that. For now.

  • Shink commented on the post, meaning 9 years ago

    I don’t really know if our relationship had any. Did you care at all? I can’t possibly explain how I feel right now, but I don’t know if you had anything. You are meaningless to me, and the worst part is I don’t care.

  • Shink commented on the post, crossed 9 years ago

    His eyes are like that, and it took me until the day he moved out to notice. I payed attention to his group, his religion, his cute hair, the way he always looks somewhat abashed, but I never thought to look directly into his eyes.

    I can’t decide if that made it easier.

  • Shink commented on the post, lack 9 years ago

    I don’t lack brains, beauty or happiness. I do lack the wisdom to know what they mean.

    I feel like that’s the more important thing.

  • Shink commented on the post, wealth 9 years ago

    I am a poor college kid who borrows quarters from the kids in my dorm to do laundry. We steal food from the dining center together, drive as a group to mess around in the dollar section of target, and trade shampoo when someone’s getting low. I could not be any richer.

  • Shink commented on the post, stand 9 years ago

    Standing at the door after is shuts behind all of them. We came as a group of random individuals, but how can I stand alone without them? How did I used to? How did it come to saying goodbye so soon?

  • Shink commented on the post, withheld 9 years ago

    my feelings, my ideas, my deepest fears, my wants. I cannot let them out of my grasp for fear of sending him further away.

    Or is that what I want?

  • Shink commented on the post, stride 9 years ago

    stride confidently as you go into your life.

    Music at your back always makes this work better, even if our strides don’t match up. You always slow up for me, and I will always try to catch up…

  • Shink commented on the post, trial 9 years ago

    is that what this is? Just a trial for my soul, that’s what life amounts to?

    I don’t buy it.

    This moment, this is your life.

    I want to scream to them, “This! You are missing this!” But still they go on…
