• Elly commented on the post, jelly 7 years, 6 months ago

    I used to tell my grandmother that she had to cover the jell-o when it was in the fridge, otherwise it got hard on top. Yuck! I still believe in the same advice, because I don’t like my jell-o hard on top. My […]

    No smell nor sight to give it away, it hides in the black of the night. Yet the roar of the thunder gives it away, nothing else, just the crash that echoes all around. It consumes you, it’s everywhere.

    The storm battled throughout the night, pitch black but for the moments when the lightning flashed across the sky. A lone woman scurried through the streets without worrying about being seen. For who would be out besides herself on such a wretched night?

  • Elly commented on the post, violent 8 years, 4 months ago

    My own violent tendencies start to scare me. It starts off as knocking over chairs and other items. I fear breaking something for the guilt that comes afterwards, but I am not myself in my anger. What if it gets worse? To breaking items, punching holes in walls, hurting people?

    She slowly dragged the cigarette from her lips, elegantly holding it between two fingers. She let out a ringlet of smoke, watching it dance before her eyes.

    “You must have proper etiquette, you must make me proud of my little girl, you must be PERFECT.” Laughter erupted from my friends as I mimicked my mother in a girly, high-pitched voice.

    He chewed on the straw in his mouth tipping his hat further down, trying to look cool. In reality, I though he just looked like a poser and a redneck. If he didn’t act like this, maybe he really would look intimidating to me. The muscles in his arm bulged.

    The maroon walls clashed only slightly with the forest green leather couch and chair set. The fireplace and large black TV stood almost side by side, the stairs to the upstairs separating them.

  • Elly commented on the post, cast 8 years, 5 months ago

    The cast cowered together as she yelled. Sarah rolled her eyes in apparent anger; After all, how could she be so unreasonable? They had done everything they could, had they not? Ungrateful jerk, she thought bitterly.

  • Elly commented on the post, stem 8 years, 5 months ago

    The stem snapped in two, revealing a hollow inside. I tugged at the end of it, getting my hands sticky. What kind of weed was this, anyway? I pulled up not only the roots, but a clump of dirt. I shook it violently and tossed it in the bin.

    The crane stretches it’s wings, it’s beady eyes still stuck on you. Suddenly, it takes flight. Its long skinny legs seem like nothing now. Only his elegance is apparent.

  • Elly commented on the post, braid 8 years, 5 months ago

    I braid my hair mostly to keep my curls in when I want them to be that certain way. Almost perfect. As it is, my hair ranges from curly to straight. Mostly, it’s wavy and dull, with a bit of frizz here and there. Meh.

  • Elly commented on the post, honest 8 years, 5 months ago

    My friend isn’t an honest, truthful person. I wont share her lies here, because they’re very worrisome things to lie about. I don’t trust her anymore. At all. I question everything she says. I know it’s bad, but..

    Are you an avid liar?

  • Elly commented on the post, wade 8 years, 5 months ago

    I waded out into the water, dragging my legs. I stretched out my arms, then lowered myself into the water, my chin just brushing the surface. I kicked my feet and began to swim.

  • Elly commented on the post, failed 8 years, 5 months ago

    I failed you. Sometimes I have to think this, because I really do fail at everything. Art, writing, even simple things like eating. School especially, have you seen my grades? And yet some days you seem so proud of me, so proud of all of us.
    Mom, dad, I love you. <3

    Did Hitler go mad? One minute he was a trustworthy man running for their leadership role, the next he was on a mad rampage to kill the Jewish people. Where does the flip come in?

  • Elly commented on the post, intense 8 years, 5 months ago

    His gaze was intense and unwavering. His pale blue eyes icy, his lips slightly downward bound at the edges. The back of my neck prickled when I picked up the unfriendly vibe, and suddenly his gaze made me feel unprotected, as if I were naked. I was intimidated by him.

  • Elly commented on the post, belief 8 years, 5 months ago

    I believe in gay marriage. Civil union, if you prefer. It’s one thing I strongly believe. Because isn’t love based on personality- Not gender, not colour, not anything but personality? I suppose I believe in true love.

  • Elly commented on the post, wonder 8 years, 5 months ago

    I wonder what it would be like to be Alice In Wonderland. Floating down a rabbit hole, eating cakes, changing sizes, flowing down a river of tears, and meeting so many interesting people.
    To be honest, I think I’d be just a tiny bit terrified. And yet there’s something magical, something lovely.

  • Elly commented on the post, smile 8 years, 5 months ago

    I like to smile, and laugh until it hurts. Smile until my cheeks hurt, laugh until my tummy aches. It’s just so much fun to feel so truly, irresistibly happy. The pain is a good pain, a fun pain.
