    She took the knife from the drawer and held it up between her and her husband.

    “Don’t come any closer, jackass.”

    He rolled his eyes. “Is the weapon really necessary? I’m not an psychopath.”

    She blanched. “You’re an alien wearing my husband’s skin!”

    The soda bubbles over the metal can, but he doesn’t see the foam as much as he sees her eyes. Even as they kept a steady distance. It was the first meeting in a thousand reincarnations and his drink was dead between them.

    There once was a lawyer long ago, that loved to read his law books. He would read them twice a month, but only twice.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, sinking 4 years, 9 months ago

    He was always seeking. Seeking far below the hate. His ego was so blinding that he could barely see his sanity.

    God was there, but he was always mouthing his words.

    He could never clearly hear.

    And thus he is sinking.

    This was a battle to the death. She could see it in sight. The best thing about having two brothers is that it prepared you for battle. A battle that she intended to win.
    “You’ll never get the last bite of cheerios.” He cackled maliciously.
    She narrowed her clover green eyes.
    “We’ll see, bitch.”

    He kicks the back of it hard with his smile and he loves to hear the bone break as she falls to the ground. Even better when he offers his hand in mercy.

    She could look up into the sky and see the world. The sun broke through and smiled.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, brisk 5 years, 7 months ago

    Its sharp and it bites. But a soft word in its ear and it goes loose and gentle. Breeze against your hair and a soft rustle of branches flowing overhead into an unknown world.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, suicidal 5 years, 7 months ago

    He looks down through the ice. The frozen thoughts of a half clicking mind. The joints are all that’s left and even they are cracking beneath the weight of the sky. The freeze chunks past paradise and the fog warms the peaks.

    She was the moon with the face of the tundra. So cold with the pale faced hate and so bright with the holy knowledge of the sun. There a reflection there, he thought, a reflection of sin and grace. All my dreams and nightmares wrapped in one.

    It spirals out of control. Spindrels of spider hands grasping at the air, grabbing each handful of oxygen that it can. Breath in the fresh and cough out the carbon. Taking out our sin and purifying the virtue.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, punished 6 years, 2 months ago

    She thought of all the failures in the world, all the people she didn’t protect, all the things she didn’t do. She deserved this, she thought. No one deserved it more than her.

    Because failure is the worst kind of sin.

    High as the Roman empire he stands.
    High as the moon the sun the stars.
    Yet as high as he can the man he stands.
    The harder he crashes amongst the sands.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, want 6 years, 10 months ago

    I want it so bad that it aches. It is the carrot in front of my nose. The grumble of hunger in my belly.

    I think I might be sick I want it so much.

    Can you hold a star?

    Bright, white, burning star. Singes your fingers and blinds your eyes. Beautiful to see, but too hot to touch.

    Can you hold a star?

    It wouldn’t open. It wouldn’t. Need the key. Got to get the key. But he had it. He’d always had it. He dangled it in front of her nose just as he had before. Always. Close but always out of reach. The bastard.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, doorknob 6 years, 11 months ago

    She jangled the doorknob desperately. Needed to get out. Freedom. Escape. Far beyond this place. Beyond the shackles clacking painfully against her wrists. She just needed to open the door.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, crust 6 years, 11 months ago

    The fresh crunch of freshly baked bread. The crust crisp and the bread soft and warm in your mouth. The relief of newly brewed coffee to wash it down.

    The perfect way to start the day.

  • Alexandra commented on the post, pastel 7 years, 3 months ago

    Tip Tap. Scritch Scratch. All across the paper, colors mixing and mingling. Dust flies through the air. You hold back a sneeze. A rainbow decorates your fingertips, finding its way in clouds to settle on your […]

  • Alexandra commented on the post, sweat 7 years, 3 months ago

    He loosened his collar and fiddled with his tie.

    White roses check.

    Chocolates check.

    Open the door. “Forgive me?”
