    it takes experience. everything does. to know yourself is really the most important thing. i still cannot claim to know myself, after spending these years alone in this body.

    A square is the second most perfect shape, after the circle. Four corners. Four sides. A beauty.

  • Sophie commented on the post, remember 8 years, 4 months ago

    I remember the way you held me that night. Not really there. But still here. Here in my heart. Gripping my soul. You, you’re never really here. You’re far. But close. Close to my emotions. And now I wait, for another night like that. Nights are rare. But I remember every one of them.

  • Sophie commented on the post, respectable 8 years, 9 months ago

    How do I want to look? I questioned myself as I looked in the mirror. Respectable. Clean nails. Neat clothes. Respectable. Don’t walk over me. Respectable for a new start.

    I can discover the world on my screen. I can only explore it out there.

  • Sophie commented on the post, temper 8 years, 10 months ago

    Losing it. I’m sure I am losing it. I hit my head with my folder as I walk up the empty staircase. There is no one here. I am sure no one heard the loud bang. I am sure I have not damaged that many brain cells. I punch the door as I push it. […]

  • Sophie commented on the post, bunny 8 years, 10 months ago

    Bunny rabbits. Remind of you. Because you’d always find them cute. Bunny rabbits. I don’t need you. But you’re everywhere. In every drawing of ever book. Tiny cartoons. Silly jokes. Sunshines. Smiles. And it’s so hard to erase you.

  • Sophie commented on the post, diagram 8 years, 10 months ago

    This is what I want. I don’t know how you’ll get it. But this is what I want. I know what I want. I just don’t know how to get there. I can draw it perfectly. And show you. But I don’t know how to reach into it and make it real.

  • Sophie commented on the post, closed 8 years, 10 months ago

    I’ve closed my heart. Not open for business anymore. I’ve shut the door. No one is getting in. No one is getting out. They will break out though. I will throw them out. Because all I do is hurt.

  • Sophie commented on the post, ivy 8 years, 11 months ago

    Poison ivy. Tangles you up. Strangles you. You’re grappling at it. You want it to let go of you. The more you struggle, the harder it gets. You pull. You try to scream but your vocal chords are failing.

  • Sophie commented on the post, junkyard 8 years, 11 months ago

    All the things you can find. Broken, maybe, probably not. Things get old, we throw them away. They work, but we don’t care, we like shiny new things. We don’t like rust. We throw away people when they get boring. We don’t like people with rust.

  • Sophie commented on the post, materials 8 years, 11 months ago

    I have the materials to build a heart and soul. I have the things I need. The trouble is I have no one to give them to. I have no one that would accept them.

  • Sophie commented on the post, average 8 years, 11 months ago

    Below average height. Above average intelligence. Not average in looks. You are entitled to your opinion as to which way she sways.

  • Sophie commented on the post, lousy 8 years, 11 months ago

    What a lousy life. To have to use the word lousy. Such a lousy word.

  • Sophie commented on the post, radar 8 years, 11 months ago

    I can feel the presence behind me. But it’s too late to scream. It’s too late to run. I do not move, I concentrate on stillness on every word in front of me. I don’t turn. I don’t breathe. My eyes are the only things that move. I close them. I sense its proximity. Alarm […]

  • Sophie commented on the post, feud 8 years, 11 months ago

    What we were that Sunday and then the following week could hardly be described as a feud. It was war. Bitter and silent and unforgiving. But I forgive you. Still. Because it’s impossible for me not to.

  • Sophie commented on the post, stage 8 years, 11 months ago

    Read. Keep reading. Remember the words. You wrote this. Come on. Oh heck. Oh no. I’ve forgotten it. What do I do? My face. It’s going red. My cheeks. Why doesn’t the ground swallow me up?

  • Sophie commented on the post, fangs 8 years, 11 months ago

    Sharp. Surreal. I see them. Out of my right eye. The left is bloodied and swollen shut. Slow motion. It all happens like it isn’t happening. Adrenaline must be coursing through my veins, but neither fight nor flight is in my muscles. Fear. Paralysed with fear.

  • Sophie commented on the post, adventure 8 years, 11 months ago

    I don’t will for adventure. I long for homely scenes. A sense of routine. To know I have a purpose. I don’t shun spontaneity however. There is a difference between spontaneity and adventure. Spontaneity is driving to somewhere and you don’t know what you’ll find. Adventure is walking there.

  • Sophie commented on the post, siren 8 years, 12 months ago

    Ambulance. You can hear it, closer, closer. You want it to come quicker, so you can get out of this car. Left shoulder, it hurts, unimaginable pain, bearable, but nothing like you’ve felt before. What will happen? What will happen?
