• Crystal commented on the post, imagined 4 years, 7 months ago

    I imagined that the world was a different place and all was good. It was beautiful. But it was just something I imagined and not real. So i was sad. But I can still live in that place in my head. Even though it’s not real.

  • Crystal commented on the post, spikes 4 years, 7 months ago

    The spikes jetted out of my ice shoes. I was about to embark in an adventure that would possibly risk my life. I opened the door and a gust of wind and cold and snow flew at me. It stun my cheeks and froze the inside of my nose. I would begin.

  • Crystal commented on the post, glowing 4 years, 7 months ago

    It is glowing the fire fly in my back yard. I had never seen one before and now here were hundreds, flitting around lighting up the night. It was dark outside and you could see the stars. The sky ablaze with them.

  • Crystal commented on the post, brushed 4 years, 7 months ago

    I was just brushed aside when I told someone what I was really feeling. I don’t think they meant this, but that is how I felt. Perhaps i should try telling them again. Or maybe it is just in my head that I was brushed aside. Maybe they really did take it seriously and I just perceive it differently. I don’t know.

  • Crystal commented on the post, charity 4 years, 7 months ago

    Charity is someone I know. I seem to have lost touch with her and I don’t know how she is now. We havent’ talked in a while even though we used to almost daily. It scares me that I have kind of forgot about her and know her name better than I am able to place her in my head. So Charity if you are out there, I say hi, and maybe we can get together…[Read more]

  • Crystal commented on the post, sinking 4 years, 8 months ago

    I have this sinking feeling that it’s all going to end badly. It is like a premonition and the way things are going I know that it’s going to come true. Everything is awful. Nothing is right, why don’t I just kill myself. It is the only way out from this stinking life. How to make it better? I don’t know.

  • Crystal commented on the post, gust 4 years, 8 months ago

    There was a gust of wind that swept by the house blowing all of the dust bunnies up into the air. I wanted it to take me with it. The way it took the thistles for a ride on its gentle wings. I was scared and i didn’t feel solid at all. Like the wind could just blow me away and that would be okay with me.

  • Crystal commented on the post, radius 4 years, 8 months ago

    The radius was all I needed to see. It was our secret term for the gun. Once I saw the radius, I knew my life was in danger. She had turned on me and I was headed for the end. It was moments before I would see black.

  • Crystal commented on the post, nobody 4 years, 8 months ago

    I am nobody. Sometimes that is how I feel. Like there is nobody inside of me, when really there is plenty inside of me. But sometimes I’m empty. Everyone inside scurries away and then nobody is home. That is an odd feeling. a feeling of vacancy. Of emptiness.

  • Crystal commented on the post, gazing 4 years, 8 months ago

    I was gazing at the painting when a man came and stood next to me. I felt awkward because the painting was of a nude woman. I felt a little exposed to be seen looking at the exposed form of the female body. “Hello,” he said. I glanced at him, “hello,” I returned.

  • Crystal commented on the post, blurry 4 years, 9 months ago

    My vision is going blurry, everything is spinning and I think I’m about to pass out. I might have drank too much, but what is too much when you are an alcoholic? One is too many and 1,000 is not enough. So I quit. now things look a little clearer.

  • Crystal commented on the post, crosswalk 4 years, 9 months ago

    They stood on the edge of the crosswalk. Cars zoomed past, none of them showing the least sign of stopping. They stepped out slowly, cautiously looking both ways. Finally the cars began to slow and they could walk safely.

  • Crystal commented on the post, delighted 4 years, 9 months ago

    I am delighted to see that not everyone is as crazy as me. It is delightful that there are some normal people out there, even if the normal people make me feel all the more crazy. But then I’m often seen as one of the normal people, if only people knew what life for me was like.

  • Crystal commented on the post, earrings 4 years, 9 months ago

    Her earrings sat untouched on the bathroom counter. She wanted to wear them, but what would that mean. Would it mean that she was in love? Would it mean that she was an extravagant lady. She never wore earrings, so this would be a change and people would notice.

  • Crystal commented on the post, violet 4 years, 9 months ago

    Roses are red, violets are blue. I can’t remember the rest of this poem. A rose, is a rose, is a rose. I don’t even think I know what a violet looks like. But it’s nice that OneWord is working again. Flowers. Flowers for weddings, for funerals, for significant others. How much we attribute to flowers.

  • Crystal commented on the post, mispelled 4 years, 10 months ago

    ah mispelled, I do that all the time. Funny that the word mispelled comes up as mispelled on here. I wonder is there antoher meaning to this word that I am not getting. I don’t seem to have a large enough vocabulary for this game the one word write game.

    a sample piece of cloth a small amount or number in a cluster, bunch or patch. But I think of swats which isn’t a nice thing to think about.

  • Crystal commented on the post, watchtower 4 years, 10 months ago

    They stood on the watchtower watching the war below them rage. A hopeless feeling rushed over Samantha and she wanted to hold onto Timothy for comfort. Her home and family were gone, bombed. She had been lucky enough to have been at school when the bombs began to fall.

  • Crystal commented on the post, stalling 4 years, 10 months ago

    I’m stalling. I was going to write about something really good, but I’m stalling and that is how I end up writing about nothing. But I’m going to break that habit and come up with some good ideas and get cracking. Because I do want to be a writer even though it is hard.

  • Crystal commented on the post, stillness 4 years, 10 months ago

    In the stillness you are there. I thought you had left me, but then I saw your glassy brown eyes staring at me through the bushes. I thought you were an animal at first then I saw the soft skin of your face. I didn’t want to scare you away by shouting. So I quietly stepped out of hiding and made myself known.
