• Ami commented on the post, individual 2 years, 10 months ago

    I adhere to my little place, my little ways
    passed me so many different faces pass
    I am transfixed at seeing them
    A striking purple catches my eye,
    then a daring scarlet
    next a beaming yellow
    again and again I see the unique brilliance of those around me
    All at once I look down at myself
    My eyes dull at the sight
    gray

  • Ami commented on the post, rested 2 years, 10 months ago

    My lips twist my face up, every pore, every cell dancing. I pop out of bed and do a little prance to the closet. I decide to take my time picking out my new skin for the day, having woken up early. My toes bring me to the kitchen, my heels too busy flying high to contribute. As I start up making breakfast, I don’t even glance at the coffee…[Read more]

    This is not something new,
    The twig twisting wildly from the steady branch above is merely a continuations for what should be
    And the branch bending down toward me,
    Merely a continuation of the tree

    Yet I ponder, perhaps pointlessly, about just what this has to do with me.

  • Ami commented on the post, continued 2 years, 10 months ago

    I stare straight on
    Glassy eyes just clear enough to see
    I can’t not tear my eyes away from the sight
    I refuse to tear my feet from the ground
    I instead dig them in deeper
    I clench my fists tightly around that little red string,
    Thin and delicate,
    Knowing very well how easily it could break
    Knowing it is our only link
    I stare as it…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, specific 2 years, 10 months ago

    “I specifically ask-!”, wailed the twisted, red face.
    “Yes. I know.”, came my signed response.
    This isn’t the first mistake, and not the last.
    The difference between a white rose and a that of a black one is so small.
    So how am I suppose to know without being told?
    My eyes stay downcast and I hold in another sigh, “I’m sorry for the…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, institute 2 years, 10 months ago

    The institute is dreary in my little box
    It is to feel nothing
    To see nothing
    To be nothing
    My arms raise and demand release
    I stretch and shove against the boundaries
    Though my body argues with my mind
    And my reason with my want
    My eyes shake and cry with frustration at the blankness of my box
    Now my legs join in the fight alongside my…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, institute 2 years, 10 months ago

    Dull, steel pierces through the bright shining world
    Screams and meaningless pleas bounce through empty halls
    Imaginary creatures leave you thunderstruck
    With their twisted and outrageous forms
    In this place full of the softest mummerings and the sharpest pain
    Fear is no where to be seen
    Fear is only found with the sane
    And for the…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, iron 2 years, 11 months ago

    Break down the iron and steal
    Iron and steel
    Iron and steel
    Break down the iron and steal
    You need not worry

    Feel not the wounds it makes
    Wounds it makes
    Wounds it makes
    Feel not the wounds it makes
    You need not worry

    Do not scream and cry
    Scream and cry
    Scream and cry
    I am by your side
    You need not worry

  • Ami commented on the post, steps 2 years, 11 months ago

    I struggle towards you, taking baby steps
    1..2..3..
    I’m crossing my fingers and hoping you don’t grow tired of me
    4..5..6..
    We are a little closer, but I fear you are already sick
    7..8..9..
    I reach for your touch, will you reach for mine?

  • Ami commented on the post, dawn 2 years, 11 months ago

    I watch from my place on the porch, as the sun rises, every inch of me covered with a blanket. I soak in the vivid sight of life till the slowly moving light inches up my face and blinds me with its brilliance.

    “You’re up early.”, a groggy voice states from behind me before I feel his arms engulf me.

    I laugh a little, lighting up with the…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, fractured 2 years, 11 months ago

    She slowly runs her finger across the crack.
    Ignoring the groan,
    She digs her fingers into it and pulls and pulls.
    The crack grows wider.
    A scream of sorrow rattles in her ears.
    She ignores it.
    She grits her teeth and pulls harder.
    It rips apart and she flings it to the ground.
    Tears stream down her face as she cries loudly.
    She…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, haunt 2 years, 11 months ago

    You look back over your shoulder
    And you see it
    There so close that it’s breath fans across your back
    You shiver and try to walk faster
    But you are met with cross roads
    You stand petrified
    If you take the wrong one
    You’ll be brought back to were you were
    With it staring you down, blocking your path
    Promising doom

    If one does not let…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, changes 2 years, 11 months ago

    The wind howls, it’s strong and icy fingers griping tightly onto everything,
    Tugging and pulling.
    The sky looms over the world, casting a large gray shadow.
    The trees shrink at the cruel forces, shivering away the leafs they once proudly bared.
    The only bright color left being those fallen comrades laying down on the ground,
    Though even…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, changes 2 years, 11 months ago

    Little me smiles
    The new me frowns
    Little me laughs and runs up, hugging her legs tightly
    The new me sighs and turns away
    The little me sees her pat my head lovingly and walk away
    The new me sees her push me away and carry on
    Everything is different, but only for me

  • Ami commented on the post, bathed 2 years, 11 months ago

    The light surounds you.
    So brightly it blurs my vision, blurs your being.
    It gives a glow so natural, so pure.
    I reach out and feel the warmed.
    You move away, taking it with you.
    You bask in the delight alone.
    I smile from the cold darkness that I’m so tightly wrapped in.
    I don’t mind.
    You deserve to relax, to sink into the tub of…[Read more]

    Click
    Click
    Smothering silence, emptiness
    The darkness pierced by a hazy light
    Click
    Click
    The rythmic sound is the only one left
    You cannot make sound anymore
    Even as you struggle to, with mouth gaping in a silent scream
    You stand alone, held in place by the icy fingers of reapers and forced to watch
    The silent moments of life pass by…[Read more]

  • Ami commented on the post, worth 2 years, 11 months ago

    I glance at it.
    I do not know.
    I look closely.
    I see the complexity, the roughness.
    I know a little better.
    I slowly, hesitantly reach out with out permission and touch it.
    I feel it shrink away, but I just press down harder and feel the smoothness.
    I know even better,
    But I need to know more.
    I raise my hands up high and bring…[Read more]

    “Lint.”

    “Huh.” He looks up slowly from his shrunken in position.

    “We need lint.”

    He sighs, hugging himself harder, “Don’t you have some? I don’t want to move.”

    “Then you won’t start a fire.”

    “Where are you headed?”

    “Onward to the journey.”

    “Yes, but WERE?”

    “Onward..-”

    “Yes, yes. To the journey, but WHAT journey?”

    “….”

    “You don’t know? Then how do you know that it’s worth it?”

    “I don’t.” And onward he went.

    “Like this?”

    “No! I said move it a little to the left, just a degree to the left!”

    “Come on! It’s been almost an hour….There. How’s that? Good, right?”

    “No! I said A degree not a million!”

    “What the heck does A degree even look like?!”
