    She lifted her bags off the ground and headed toward the door, running quickly. It was a once in a life-time opportunity she had to do it. There was no back up plan, nothing she wanted more. It was spontaneous and different, and she loved him for it.

    She thumbed it, out on highway 11. She found it hard to keep on the soft shoulder but she knew she couldn’t stay on the highway. It made it nearly impossible to go anywhere else in the heat of the night. She wanted to go home. It’s why she got out of her boyfriend’s truck. She loved him but he didn’t love her the same way. He expected so much, he…[Read more]

    My chemistry exam was so exhausting. I barely remembered what I did yesterday, and this, all of these facts and names and stoichiometry, I tried I really did, but I ended up handing my exam, incomplete. I think I’ve failed my mother.

  • Astrid commented on the post, promise 6 years, 6 months ago

    Promise, a single promise, easy to say hard to keep, although a great many people make them more often then not, they are broken. Simply because they are forgotten. Why is it so hard to remember a promise, but so easy to forget the events of a past day or even split second. Why create so much pain for someone when you do not wish to keep it? Why…[Read more]

    “Rawr!” the little lion squealed hoping to get a reaction out of his friend but it seemed to do nothing to phase him. He had heard it all before.

    The upper cupboard door was open, blood dripping down from the top shelf. I go to reach for the step ladder to see what lays inside. A live bloody heart beating with blood pumping out of it, I call for my husband.

    I’m afraid. I’m very afraid of what you may or may not do to me. I’m scared that I may never see you again. I’m scared that you will just trample all over my heart. I’m scared that I mean nothing to you.

    One trial, one free trial. You know that if this doesn’t work out, it’ll be a lot harder to concentrate on everything. You think that going back your once happy life will be easy but it won’t. This trial, once […]
