• Audrey commented on the post, forth 7 years, 1 month ago

    As I go forth in my journey,
    I look back at the steps I have taken.
    Loves lost,
    Hearts broken,
    Words unspoken.
    It all seems so trivial now, standing here.
    It all seems so insignificant.
    And yet,
    I look […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, teeth 7 years, 1 month ago

    The teeth of your words dig into my skin.
    They tear my flesh,
    They bite off my fingers.
    So painfully, I cried out into the night.
    And everyone heard me,
    But no one listened.

  • Audrey commented on the post, shown 7 years, 1 month ago

    Surely, in some other life, in some other world, I was shown a way out.
    I was shown an escape from the cruel reality of things.
    But not in this life, and not in this world.
    I am shown the facts, and then forced […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, shown 7 years, 1 month ago

    What I have been shown, I cannot deny. I cannot prove it wrong.
    I’d like to believe it’s all a lie.
    I’d like to believe it’s all some sick, twisted fantasy that runs through my head all day long.
    But what I’ve […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, raised 7 years, 1 month ago

    I was raised in fire.
    Brought up by wolves.
    Wild, careless creatures.
    And now, I am cold. Shivering.
    Longing for the warm breeze of home.
    But I am left out here alone in the cold, starry, night.
    Beautiful […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, entrance 7 years, 1 month ago

    You make an entrance. Every time.
    To you, it’s only walking through a door.
    To you, it’s only showing up.
    But now you’re here.
    And you’ve made an entrance. Every pair of eyes is on you now. Everybody becomes […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, civilize 7 years, 1 month ago

    “Act civilized,” They all told me, “Act like a lady.”
    But maybe I don’t want to act like a lady.
    Maybe I want to act like a boy. A careless, slouched, improper boy.
    A boy who laughs at the silly things.
    A boy […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, upper 7 years, 1 month ago

    The upper floor.
    Oh, how I’ve wanted to go there. So many times, I’ve made my way to the staircase. So many times, I’ve just stood in front of the staircase, one foot extended, never quite willing to climb those […]

  • Audrey commented on the post, upper 7 years, 1 month ago

    The upper class.
    A thing we all wanted.
    All of the fancy cars, the expensive designer clothes.
    But why did we want that?
    Couldn’t we see what happened behind closed certains?
    Lies, deceit, shoving your way […]
