• Chloe commented on the post, castle 7 years, 12 months ago

    Castle is my heart, my home. Guarded by the many layers of bricks I spent years building. You may be able to get past the moat but the drawbridge is closing and the many flaming arrows raining down will get you in the end. I cannot let you tear down my castle. It’s the only […]

  • Chloe commented on the post, transport 8 years, 1 month ago

    Transport me to a place where I no longer know your name. I have not yet known the taste of your kiss or your fingertips on my back. Where we could have rushed through all of that instead of the seven long years it took to actually come to terms with who we are. Together. […]

    Canvas. I use them a lot but mostly I stare at them. The blank canvas is my favorite canvas because it is all about possibility. It is inviting you to write, paint, and draw on it. I am a canvas. I invite people to do whatever to me without any consequences. Like a canvas I […]

    Wings. How apropos. Today my best friend spread his wings by going off to boot camp. He is becoming the person that he has always wanted to be and now nothing is going to stop him. I have never been so proud to have him in my life. His wings will carry him far.

    I used to think that cigarettes were harmful and unnecessary. I stare longingly at each pack for they remind me of my mother. That smoke smell. Her smell.
