    leaning against your side, staring up at the stars.
    a midnight picnic on a flower filled hillside.
    precious moments with you.

    sticks and stones may break my bones but words will /always/ hurt me.
    people seem to forget the impact of their remarks, how one little comment can stick in the back of someone’s mind for ages.

    polite.
    a simple smile.
    polite.
    a kind gesture.
    polite.
    holding my hand.

    holding me close.

    keeping me safe.

  • Abby commented on the post, motel 4 months ago

    long car rides into night time skies. adventures with family, seeing things i’ve never seen before, breakfast – not always good, but very welcome before yet another long car ride.

  • Abby commented on the post, conflict 7 months, 2 weeks ago

    conflict follows her wherever she leads.
    she argues with her boss over tedious tasks.
    she argues with her mother over past due bills.
    she argues with the cashier over pennies and dimes.

    but conflict creates opportunity.

    her boss gave her a raise.
    her mother agreed to let her help pay bills.
    her cashier finally agreed to keep the change.

    laying there, my gaze pointed to the sky.
    i see nothing but rays from the bright sun as i lay there.
    finally at peace.

    laying there, my gaze pointed to the sky.
    i see nothing but the starry night sky as i lay there.
    finally at peace.

    thanks for putting a skylight in my mausoleum.

  • Abby commented on the post, penguin 8 months ago

    frosty winter days.
    the frigid climate almost unbearable for humans, but somehow
    we still destroy the ecosystem.
    polar bears. penguins.
    loosing ice, loosing their homes.
    if a force we couldn’t control started stealing our homes, we wouldn’t be very happy, would we?

  • Abby commented on the post, ghosts 1 year, 5 months ago

    the ghosts of the past come back to haunt. chilling memories of those you loved, then lost.
    a shiver travels down your spine, recalling the past- when it was a happier time.

  • Abby commented on the post, birds 1 year, 5 months ago

    flapping wings, harmonious melodies spread through the breeze on otherwise silent spring days, flashes of color throughout the green foliage, graceful movement throughout the skies. music portrayed in living form.

  • Abby commented on the post, starving 1 year, 5 months ago

    hunger, desperation. striving for something that may not be there. love, money, food, attention. you crave these things, you search desperately for these things. whether your starvation will be cured or not is all up to the cruel goddess of fate.

  • Abby commented on the post, shore 1 year, 5 months ago

    beautiful sands and a flowing sea, the tide lapping at your toes. crabs scattering on the soft sands. the moon rising over the horizon, replacing the setting sun.
