    The trains are whispering
    they’re screaming

    I woke with welts along my arm.
    I didn’t realize that dreams did so much harm.

    The flowers will either wilt when they’re ready
    Or when your hand on the can becomes unsteady
    So pour a little water across the wishes I left
    Before I put the feelings to rest

    The flowers learn to wilt
    before they learn to smile.

  • Cerulean commented on the post, determined 6 years, 8 months ago

    The voices around her were only whispers in her head. The faces were so blurred, the world so indistinct. All she could hear were her stomach’s constant cries. Crying, crying, crying. She tried to wipe the tears away, screaming inside for the sake of pure discipline.

    She was determined to win this fight.

    Yet in only a moment, her body was…[Read more]

    The wallpaper was torn, dust scattered across the living floor like the ashes of a destroyed past. There was a little table with broken legs in the center of the room. On it, a telephone rang. It rang and rang and rang.

    “You’ve reached the Dorsey family. Sorry, we’re unavailable. Please leave a message after the beep!”

    The same message,…[Read more]

    “There are teaching methods, there are multiplication methods, there are grading methods, childcare methods, memorization methods, there are methods to everything! But there’s absolutely no method for getting out of this.”
    “Karen,” He inched towards her, and she couldn’t help but let him. “What we have is the best method of all.” The young,…[Read more]

    I knew that I loved him the moment I saw him pour the lemonade. It spilled all over the table and quickly, he rushed to clean it up, apologizing repeatedly as he threw side-glances my way. I didn’t want […]

    It was only a brief moment. I caught a glimpse of his eyes just before he turned and walked away. The door never slammed; it just shut, so simply and so quietly. I wish it had slammed, I wish the moment hadn’t […]

    Switching is hard. Whether it’s switching homes, switching grades, switching lifestyles, switching always demands our own courage. Yet, we can’t be afraid to switch or else we will done day be afraid of life itself.

  • Cerulean commented on the post, chat 7 years, 2 months ago

    Only a few seconds ago, I was chatting a friend on facebook, and they asked, “Why are you so pessimistic?” You know, what bugs me the most is when people start asking about why you are who you are. I’m not going […]

  • Cerulean commented on the post, grind 7 years, 2 months ago

    I hear the coffee grinder every morning, and that how I know life still goes on. That’s how I know I’m still a child. As I lie in bed, looking up at the ceiling, I hope that there will never be a day where I that […]

  • Cerulean commented on the post, jelly 7 years, 2 months ago

    Jelly. It’s actually a sad novelty if you think about it. Never do we eat jelly by itself. The fact that there are some things on this world–like jelly–that are forced to be dependent on others, is a bit sad. […]

  • Cerulean commented on the post, treaty 7 years, 2 months ago

    When we think of treaties, we often think about peace and compromise. However, in many cases, we forget the amount of loss embedded within a treaty. The Treaty of Versailles, for example, had extreme consequences […]

    Being lost is emptying. We’re all lost–one way or another, being emptied of everything we used to know, finding that what we had thought was the truth, maybe isn’t so.

  • Cerulean commented on the post, cap 7 years, 2 months ago

    Putting the cap on something can either be an act of cowardice or an act of total and complete courage. Sometimes, we run away from our past. We are too afraid to face it–and therefore, we just put a cap on it […]

  • Cerulean commented on the post, convict 7 years, 2 months ago

    I am the convict, trying to escape my past. Yet, it’s hard to run away when you have left such memorable scars on this world. Although I’ve escaped many times, freedom is something else entirely.

  • Cerulean commented on the post, hassle 7 years, 2 months ago

    Sometimes, we just have too much on our plates. Sometimes, we just need to start juggling two balls instead of three. Sometimes, we just need to let go of the mess we’ve put ourselves into. For the hassles that […]

  • Cerulean commented on the post, reporter 7 years, 2 months ago

    We all want to be the reporter: the one who finds the big secret, or uncovers the new biggest story. We are so intrigued by the possible fame that could result from this, that we tend to overlook the story itself. […]
