    Slow and steady wins the race.
    Slow and steady.

    So I am here. Turtling along at a steady pace.

    Patience was never a virtue of mine.

  • Audrey commented on the post, worthwhile 6 years, 2 months ago

    She was entirely worthwhile, just not worth the tiresome effort it took to sustain this relationship. Worth it, just not worth it. He struggled to find honest meaning in these contradicting feelings.

  • Audrey commented on the post, bloomed 6 years, 2 months ago

    it bloomed into something different, something crude, something far more sinister than she could have imagined. It had bloomed into something she couldn’t get away from, because she longed for the sweet fragrance of it. She wanted to run, far away from the manifestation of this passion, but something inside wouldn’t allow her to go.

  • Audrey commented on the post, mumbling 6 years, 6 months ago

    you’re always mumbling
    telling me things I can’t understand
    why won’t you just speak.

    Just say the words out loud, pronounce them as if you mean it.
    Because I hope you do.

  • Audrey commented on the post, leverage 6 years, 6 months ago

    just give me some leverage,
    cut me some slack.
    I don’t know how you could squeeze anymore out of me than what I’m already giving.
    Other than my soul, the one thing I won’t surrender.

  • Audrey commented on the post, trench 6 years, 6 months ago

    in trenches of dark blackness.
    In ditches of honeydew
    In rivers run red with blood
    In streams through fields of blue.

  • Audrey commented on the post, vines 6 years, 6 months ago

    tangling me in the inner midst of your presence.
    Your words like vines around my soul.
    arranging themselves, fastened tight around every cell of me.
    They grow lush.

  • Audrey commented on the post, fabricated 6 years, 6 months ago

    fabricated evidence that what you had was true.
    proof that what happened was probably all you
    fabricated sunny days you wished would never end.
    shattered broken memories used up with the wind.

  • Audrey commented on the post, fabricated 6 years, 6 months ago

    fabricated evidence of cares and hopes for you.
    fabricated proof that what you had was truth.
    fabricated ends of days used up with the wind.
    fabricated sunny days who wished would never end.

  • Audrey commented on the post, boots 6 years, 6 months ago

    boots for walking
    hiking
    running
    boots for gently jabbing your horse to go.
    Boots passed down,
    worn and cracked,
    Boots that carry lovely secrets in their soles.

  • Audrey commented on the post, boots 6 years, 7 months ago

    the system booted up.
    “c’mon, c’mon” she thought as her watch tick echoed loudly in the dank room.
    Just one little admission was all she needed.
    Who knew one would have to rely on something as trivial as technology for saving everything they knew…

  • Audrey commented on the post, beware 6 years, 7 months ago

    beware of the big bad wolf,
    who comes in broad daylight
    under the ruse of handsome gentility,
    to steal away your heart and
    pitch it back to you with shattered pieces
    in his full stomach.

  • Audrey commented on the post, truth 6 years, 7 months ago

    the truth is I don’t know the truth.
    I don’t know if any of us do.
    So any opinions are spewing from mouths of friends and strangers
    that it is hard to make out what is true.
    Only a few things I am absolutely sure of indeed.
    The truth is love.

  • Audrey commented on the post, lamb 6 years, 7 months ago

    all in shambles from this poorly constructed fence I’ve attempted around my soul
    you come in
    I don’t know what to do.
    Like a lamb to the slaughter you enter the wretched realm within me
    But you’ve already died.
    Now you can bring me back to life.

  • Audrey commented on the post, weakling 6 years, 7 months ago

    why is it so easy to be a weakling
    a victim
    trampled upon by the giants that walk this Earth.
    Will you stand up for me when my delicate shroud has fallen down?
    Will you stay and protect my weak skin from crumbling away,
    my weak heart from exploding into shards that pierce into everyone else?

  • Audrey commented on the post, weakling 6 years, 7 months ago

    I’m just a weakling in this world
    I can’t handle the giants thundering down
    throwing rocks at my delicately made shelter.
    Lucky
    There’s One who fights for me.

  • Audrey commented on the post, instill 6 years, 7 months ago

    he instilled in me the lesson of learning
    I learned procrastination well too.
    I don’t know why it’s so hard to get this over with.
    I’ll probably just blame it on him. or you.
    Doesn’t matter really, I can blame it on the air if it gets me free.

  • Audrey commented on the post, sentenced 6 years, 7 months ago

    for life. for a crime he didn’t commit. Sometimes justice isn’t so just. Sometimes we are dissapointed with society and drag others with us to our cynical hole.

  • Audrey commented on the post, plays 6 years, 8 months ago

    all day he plays with the box. He doesn’t know what it my contain. It does not matter. His mother looks down, wishing she had the ability to be satisfied with such blissful ignorance.

  • Audrey commented on the post, think 6 years, 8 months ago

    thinking brings tears at times and ideas at best.
    I think and I think of so many things but whether I
    act
    is what bothers me.
    I think perhaps I think too much.
    I think perhaps I’m doing so now.
    I think… I should stop thinking and get some sleep.
    But that’s easier said than done
