    If she hadn’t crossed my path then, I never would’ve noticed. She was kind of way, but beautiful in a quiet sort of way. But soft and sunken, life’s forgotten pin cushion, drained and abused.

    I didn’t see it coming. It was just a thump thump thump in my chest-a shaking in my limbs. I clenched my jaw against the chatter. I felt the wave before it hit me, inhaled the smoke before the fire caught. I wasn’t ready for the pain, but it hit me like a stamapede.

    When I was five and I visited my grandparents at an assisted living home there was a very old man in a wheelchair in the lobby. I went over to him, and with ernesty asked, “are you dying?” My parents hushed me and apologized to the man. But as I looked back at him he […]

    Don’t be afraid. I always was, and look were that got me. Alone and tired, so tired. I am dumb, with the questions I never asked screaming in my ears. I am silent, choking on the fears of what will never be.

    It is all I have. But the strength of my pride is such that I can not let it go, I will not let it go. My pride was never one to please, and my strength was never known to break.

    There was a simple time once. We wrote letter and said prayers. We told stories to our children, sitting by a roaring fire to keep the cold and sickness at bay. We were dirty and sick, we were helpless and stupid. But what are we now that we weren’t then?

    We zoom long the coastline in his old car. The wind blows my hair away from my face and the sun welcomes it. It is so classic, so cliched, so perfect that it isn’t true.

    you never know what life is going to deal you. I opened my door that monday morning hungover and exhausted, I did not expect to find him on my doorstep more broken than even I was.

    Th girl could never really be happy, not with hair frizzy like wool and a world that would judge her. But the light of that summer day made her beautiful, and she clung to it like rope, holding on the the last precious tendrils as the sun slipped away.

    he promised to take care of me. But now I sit, cold and forgotten on the street. The thin torn wool of my jacket does nothing to keep away the cold, or the sorrow that he is not here.

    We are all born for something, we go through life pretending we know what that is, pretending that anyone knows. When we get to the end we realize this whole time we have been searching for the answer and it was just given to us.

    Freckles dot my nose in the most horrible manner. when I was younger I would stand in front of the mirror scrunching and unscrunching my nose, hoping every time that the movement would loosen the freckles hold on my skin.

    It was so close I could almost touch it, but it fell away. I fell away from me like every other impossible dream I had ever dared to dream, dropping into the abyss of lost hopes.

  • carter commented on the post, near 9 years, 1 month ago

    All I ever wanted was to be close to someone or something, so close I could feel what they were feeling, soak them in. The funny thing is, I never wanted that person to be you.

    I would do anything for her, if she asked, if she smiled, if she batted an eye I would be on bended knee begging to assist. Oh, what fools we are.

    Lonely and heartbroken, she sat. Mopping the floor with salty tears. “Good job,” he said as he came through the door. “The windows next, if you please.”

    Nothing is ever completed until death and I like my fragments undone.

    I want to be inside you, like flowers in a vase. Let your love fill me with the bright life.

  • carter commented on the post, vase 9 years, 2 months ago

    Hold me together,
    when I fall apart,
    leave me alone,
    and break my heart.

    My love like flowers hold,
    stay with me,
    please,
    break the mold
