    She stared right through me. She knew that I knew. And she knew that I knew that she knew. It was all her fault. It all started with her. Now that I think about it, it makes perfect sense.

  • Alouette commented on the post, improv 5 years, 10 months ago

    I walked in to the theater and wasn’t really expecting much. A friend had invited me to his improv show, and I agreed to go and show my support. He wasn’t the best at this in real life, but maybe, just maybe, he’d be better on the stage. At his own show.

  • Alouette commented on the post, geometric 5 years, 10 months ago

    I couldn’t see past the lines. The many shapes. They all got in the way of what was really there. Why were there so many triangles?! Polygons?! Ugh!

    I turned the corner. My head was starting to hurt.

    There was a door.

    It was so loud.
    It invaded and
    It permeated into me.
    “Look at me!!!!”
    It screamed.
    “Here I am!!!!”
    It pointed out, and
    It jumped up.
    I’m everything you say I am.

  • Alouette commented on the post, brisk 5 years, 11 months ago

    The chilly wind hit my face as I walked down the street. I was hoping it wasn’t going to be this cold, but I guess the weatherman hates me. The wind nipped at my nose and froze my cheeks, turning them this really nice shade of pink. I hate this cold, brisk weather, but I’m going to have to get used to it.

  • Alouette commented on the post, overcooked 5 years, 11 months ago

    The smell coming from the kitchen was overwhelming. I couldn’t wait to taste what was in the oven. Once the timer went off, I arranged the plates and waited, with bated breath, to taste the deliciousness that I was about to experience. One bite….dry. as. hell. Dammit. Overcooked again.

  • Alouette commented on the post, scalp 6 years ago

    “Hey! Quit it!”
    She wouldn’t stop picking at me. She was on me like a monkey at the zoo. Yes, my scalp itched like crazy, but I didn’t need someone picking at my head like I couldn’t take care of it myself.

  • Alouette commented on the post, stamped 6 years ago

    *BOOM*
    The stamp seemed to resonate throughout the large, vaulted ceilinged room. It was finally official. No longer did I have to live in fear of not being part of society. I had waited for what seemed like an eternity.

  • Alouette commented on the post, scale 6 years ago

    He scaled the wall, gripping each piece of stone that jutted out for his taking. He was going to make it. To the very top. No one was going to stop him. He would find a way. This was his destiny – to climb to the very top.

  • Alouette commented on the post, easygoing 6 years ago

    Most people think I’m easygoing. In reality, I just don’t care. If you make it to the point in our relationship where I actually care about you, kudos. Easygoing people…most of them annoy me. Especially the ones that tout themselves as easygoing. It’s usually a lie.

  • Alouette commented on the post, hoping 6 years ago

    I’m hoping that I’ve made the right decision.
    I’m hoping that what I’ve hoped for is really in my grasp
    And not in my imagination.
    I’m hoping that those I’ve hurt will forgive me.
    I’m hoping that those I love know that I love them.
    I’m hoping beyond all hope that there really is a hope to hope for.

  • Alouette commented on the post, coach 6 years, 4 months ago

    It’s not the most comfortable, but it’s all I know. And now I’m drawing a blank. I can’t think of anything to write about coach. It’s a brand, its someone who teaches sports, its a section of the airplane.

  • Alouette commented on the post, undetected 6 years, 4 months ago

    She crept about, sneaking, undetected. She was trying to find out what was going on without anyone knowing. Her curiosity was getting the best of her, and she knew that she would be caught if she kept it up. How could she get the information she was seeking without giving herself away?

  • Alouette commented on the post, brotherhood 6 years, 4 months ago

    my little brother is one of my joys. he’s such a great person, inside and out. i love him unconditionally, and wish I could spend more time with him. we live int he same city. not even fifteen minutes apart. but i miss him. i miss him terribly.

  • Alouette commented on the post, sisterhood 6 years, 4 months ago

    I miss my sister. I wish I got to spend more time with her. It was irritating growing up. Having her around. Constantly copying me. It drove me insane. Now she is her own person, and I am mine. We have grown into wise young women and cherish every moment we get to spend together.

  • up up up in the clouds
    way
    up up up so high
    away
    up up up where no one can reach
    not even the most soaring bird
    or jet
    or cloud
    up up up and away
    up up up and I’ll stay
    up up up and go go go
