    “Stop!”

    She turned and looked at Hannah, her eyes blazing, her hands frozen in the air.

    I watched to see what would happed; normally Hannah would back down- normally she would neer stand up for herself in the first plce.

    “You go around, furious and negative all the time, and I’m sick of it,” Hannah said, holding her gaze. I drew in a…[Read more]

    “What did you do?”

    I swallow hard, trying not to meet his eyes. He already knows what I did, everyone knows what I did becuase it’s what everyone wanted to do. And what nobody wanted me to do.

    “Sam,” he grows.

    I turn to him, trying to match his gaxe, “I asked her to stay.”

    The world is blurry around the edges suddenly, like my mind has decided the best way to cope with this is not at all.

    “What?” I say, my mouth dry and sticky.

    My heart rate spikes as she repeats herself and the monitor next to me goes crazy. “You’re dying,” she says again, “and I am so sorry.”

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, glowing 5 years, 3 months ago

    She was glowing- and not in the “light-radiating from” kind of way.

    Her smiles were wider and brighter, her eyes were up and her hands moved when she talked.

    She was to the rest of the world what she had always been to me, and it was like I didn’t know her anymore.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, brushed 5 years, 3 months ago

    I knew it was over then.

    All the comments, all the stupid games. The way my heart lit on fire- it was done as soon as she brushed my hand away.

    It was all burnt to hell.

  • Her eyes flitted with indecision as he walked away. If there was ever a time that hewr f*cking legs should have just MOVED, just walked for her instead of waiting for her command, it was that moment. But, to her complete and udder horror, she stood there and watched as he disappeared.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, silo 6 years, 3 months ago

    When you live in Iowa, you can tire of seeing silos everywhere you look. But on that particular day, an old silo on the gravel road down the road from my house caught my attention and I couldn’t help but climb it, looking out from the top, gripping with one hand and feeling like I was on top of the world.

  • Let’s try to make this worthwhile,
    Let’s try to make you smile,
    Let’s wipe away those tears,
    Let’s change gears.

    Let’s bring them down,
    Let’s hurt those who hurt you,
    Let’s do the things they told you not to,
    Let’s kill tonight.

    His hand clamps over mine and he drags me down the street, shoving me into the alley and hiding me from the lion. “Are you insane?” He scolds when the lion is gone. “You can’t do stuff like that.”

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, doors 6 years, 4 months ago

    Close all the doors that won’t open all the way. Shred the doors that no longer have screaming children behind them. Open the doors that led to power, to energy. Avoid the doors that lead to Earth.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, polite 6 years, 4 months ago

    With thier polite ways and sickenly sweet words, some people may bend you to make you believe that they love you. But how can someone that loves you be so intent on mkaing your every waking moment a living hell? If your pain makes their eyes light up in joy and they humorlessly laigh as you struggle to remain composed, maybe you should ignore the…[Read more]

    And her strong will was wrought into a twisted shape. They kept hitting with that steel hammer until she finally crumpled, leaving a scarred version of her once beautiful self as their suvenire.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, raven 6 years, 4 months ago

    I carded my hands through his raven black hair. “No, don’t,” I pleaded with my little brother, holding his head in my lap. It was everywhere, pooling at his side and smudged on his face. His breath was coming in short pants and I knew he was gone.

  • Her whole body was submerged as he jumped on top of her. A strangled gasp left her mouth and she desperatly tried to breath, but all that came rushing in was water. I watched as she came back up, sputtering and laughing. And I wished she hadn’t come back up.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, derived 6 years, 4 months ago

    I watched the small corners of her mouth twist into an unsettling smile, derived and strained from the largest of grins. It seems as if this small gesture was her best try to project to me her happpines, but she hadn’t been in so while, she’d forgotten how.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, wrapped 6 years, 5 months ago

    Desperation wrapped itself around me and I opened my mouth in a silent scream, waiting for the pain to pass. Because as much as people say that it gets easier. it doesn’t. She’s gone, gone. And she always will be.

  • How it was that they passes undetected through the checkout was unbelievable. The kid had a toy up his shirt! But, sure enough, when we got home, there he was, playing with the toy that he had stolen with none of us being any the wiser.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, alarming 6 years, 6 months ago

    The way things can escalte is alarming;

    I hate when people pour my cereal for me.
    They don’t know how much I want.
    They don’t know my life.
    They don’t know what I’vebeen through.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, flour 6 years, 8 months ago

    A gigantic cloud of powder fell over me. “James!” I sceamed, running at him.
    He laughed and jumped away from me, laughing as I tried to wipe the flour on him.

  • DeionDakota commented on the post, vines 6 years, 8 months ago

    I walked towards the building. Mysterious vines warped themselves around the sides, as if squeezing the shack into it’s last breath. I could see the smoke pouring out the windows and I knew I had found what I was looking for: the Stoner Shack.
