    I can be happy. Actually, I am happy. I am happy now matter what.

    it is the reason i am homesick. it’s the reason there are millions of people in my home city. because every other place is this very word. NYC buffs you into you shine. OH files you down into dust.

    “There’s something wrong with the chef; every time she tries to make a meal, she puts her all into its perfection and when she’s done, she’s no longer hungry. Three meals in a role, cooling on the table, wasting, never enjoyed.”
    “Chefs aren’t made to enjoy the food, only serve.”
    “What a waste”.

    it’s not sexual. it’s not sensual. it’s not even flirty. It’s knowing my need without my explaining.

    Let’s rant. Let’s punch. Let’s kiss. Let’s drink. Be upwardly mobile. Point with full-bellied laugh at the tripped. Feed the hunger. Cry in the shower. Fall in hate. Leap in love. Kiss some more. Die happy. Live forever.

    Dear wasps, hornets, mosquitoes, silverfish, earwigs, all spiders, worms, and any other, specifically rude, Ohio-native, bugs that my New York Yankee ass is just not used to handling, catching, stepping on, or co-gardening with, that’s enough. Now, I mean it. I could turn you in for terrorism under the USA Patriot Act, Title I, for […]

    Whenever I see the word “violent” I think of purple. I wonder if anyone else has genders, colors, and personalities for certain letters, numbers, and words.

  • Delaine commented on the post, trophy 8 years, 1 month ago

    It was his company’s last dinner party. He felt excited and relieved when he heard her reach the bottom of the stairs. For once, she didn’t carry the heavy, dragging sound of flip-flops and slippers. The fact that they were named “flip-flops” and “slippers” and carried such an obnoxious cackle, made him conclude that they […]

    I can’t be won over again. This time, my Resignation of You will not be undone. In fact, Resignation of You and I are like best friends. Resignation has my back. I trust it. It tells me when to give it up, when I’ve had enough. And Resignation has been “screwed to the sticking place.” […]

    If I have to bow to another request by you, to another command that suggests that my joy and happiness is not a priority in the Grand Plan- if I am asked to cower again under your weighty shadow of neglect and “purposeless-ness”, endless servitude, invisible reward- if i am asked to bow again, I […]

    I am plagued by the quality, or lack thereof, of this website. Thank you for the words, my Muse. @Jbyrd

    Oh my goodness. I don’t know where to begin with this word. So many points, so little time. 60 seconds to be exact.

  • Delaine commented on the post, maroon 8 years, 1 month ago

    I think i may be dyslexic. Whenever I see ‘maroon’, I think of the word moron. Maroon. Moron. Maybe I’m just the latter of the two words. Or maybe not dyslexic, just illiterate. Either way, I’m screwed as a writer.

  • Delaine commented on the post, cast 8 years, 1 month ago

    I am under my husband’s spell. After all of these years, he remains my Truelove. My Enchanter. It’s his cologne, his deeply-toned voice, and the way I have to look all the way up at him. He’s a giant redwood and his spell sheds down on me like leaves.

  • Delaine commented on the post, stem 8 years, 1 month ago

    “…Twenty-four, twenty-five, twenty-six…” That was her fifth time shouting to twenty-six, ending the besetting ritual. By the end of it all, she sat back in the chair, sweating and panting. Her blonde highlights clung to her forehead and nape like wet grass. She’d never had an episode in public before. She had just gotten there […]
