    I haven’t seen you in a long time, but I know you’ll surface soon. When I need you most, you’ll come. You’ll torture and break and tear. You’ll save the essence that makes up my life. And I want that.

  • Mara commented on the post, shock 2 years, 7 months ago

    Shock is a bad word to use. It’s a nothing word. A word that can only mean something to you if you’re in the thick of it. You can’t feel shock by reading it. You can’t feel shock by saying it. You can only feel it when you’re down on your knees, waist deep in it. You can only feel it if it’s taken your heart out of your chest.

  • Mara commented on the post, wilderness 5 years, 7 months ago

    there’s nothing wild about the word wilderness; an absence of that strong vowel sound has ripped the word of its savagery. wilderness beckons. you hear it and you’re standing at the foot of a forest, and you are not afraid.

  • Mara commented on the post, strike 5 years, 8 months ago

    Strike like snakes bearing their white fangs, gleaming beneath the sun.
    Strike – I was never struck. I was never bitten, never beaten. I was thrown out of cars and pushed against walls, but never struck.
    Strike – picket against the feeling that’s been tearing you apart inside. Refuse to leave until it puts on its shoes and the door hits its…[Read more]

    talons of silver and black frost bite
    – the neck of the lovers at dawn
    sinking into a burning embrace

  • Mara commented on the post, defined 5 years, 9 months ago

    I talked about morals with a friend today, and about how Rahab lied to protect others. She was praised, but the Bible still says lying is wrong.
    I talked about psychology and religion with you today. We talked about the phenomenological perspective – how things exist because they exist in the minds of people. Is that defined enough?
    I thought…[Read more]

    Firearm. Arms made of fire. You could touch me and I’d combust. And that’s not what that means, firearms are weapons of anger. But I think if you shot me, all I’d feel would be love. Love, love, bleeding red, and I’m staring up at your face like you’ve freed me from something.

    I imagine the taste of bourbon, how it would sting my virgin lips. I imagine what you tasted like after a shot of whiskey in my name. I have drank alcohol, but nothing is as heady as your slurring words.

    she wasn’t insane
    but she played the game
    so damn different it was insane.
    it took me a while to get it
    why she’d bit her tongue off

    what do you call a man who encourages his wife to be a prostitute and puts his children out on the street to beg and steal?

  • drew commented on the post, unthinkable 6 years ago

    In a city like this the whole damn universe seems like a curse. Time is a knife and Space is a stab wound. Darling, I know it’s unthinkable, but around here we’re the closest thing to God we’ve got.

  • drew commented on the post, unthinkable 6 years ago

    Here you are nothing. You simply don’t count. You are here to obey, to accept everything, to keep your mouth shut.

    got a belly full of hate and poison, working with the darkest fuel, loving with the darkest eyes. Like I got a steel stomach- baby drain my tank, keep me fasting from the world’s rage and I’ll be just fine.
