    All people do is talk, talk, talk, using empty words. They never do. Actions are nonexistent. All people do is talk. But their words, they lack the very necessary conviction to get things done.

  • Emily commented on the post, deserved 5 years, 6 months ago

    I suppose I had it in my mind that as your sister I deserved more time with you than I got. Really, though, it’s just that you deserved more years than you had. In the end, it doesn’t matter what I thought you deserved, because it’s been seven months and you’re still gone.

    I’ll never forget the first time I realized how unnecessarily cruel people could be. It was middle school. The spring dance was in a few weeks, and all I wanted was for my crush to ask me. When he finally did, I was thrilled. I called it my first date.

    All that was left was his old sweatshirt that smelled like her, and a single rose, withered and pressed between the pages of the last book they read together.

  • Emily commented on the post, motivated 5 years, 10 months ago

    I find it ironic that the word of the day is “motivated” when that is exactly what I am not feeling today. Motivation is something I’ve been lacking quite a bit lately. I’m thinking that I’m going to have to get motivated really fast, really soon, though. With all that I have to get done next week, I’m gonna need a little bit of luck, and a whole…[Read more]

  • Emily commented on the post, heightened 5 years, 11 months ago

    Perhaps it was the drugs, or perhaps it was just because she seemed to feel that she was often in a world all her own that none could touch, but her senses seemed unusually heightened this starry night. Smells were very distinct, some undeniably pleasant, some unfamiliar. Sounds were smooth and melodious, and the sweet music surrounding her rang…[Read more]
