• Lucille commented on the post, miraculous 5 years, 5 months ago

    That moment when our hands touch, our lips meet, our bodies fuse. Salty sweet. Maybe a little too risque to be called a religious experience, but definitely something miraculous.

  • Lucille commented on the post, lethargic 5 years, 6 months ago

    These hazy days keep getting longer as I wait for time to start. Tv, nap, tv, nap, facebook, nap. Never need to get out of bed when there’s nothing to get up for. I was never a go getter, now I don’t go anywhere to get anything.

  • Lucille commented on the post, sweat 7 years, 7 months ago

    Dripping down your chest, glistening in the fading afternoon sunlight. You smile, breathing heavily, leaning in for another kiss.

  • Lucille commented on the post, return 7 years, 10 months ago

    I sometimes wish returns worked for things other than merchandise. This relationship isn’t like the picture on the box, I want my time back please.

  • Lucille commented on the post, abstract 7 years, 11 months ago

    I finish the final sentences of my length research paper, thinking wistfully of what I could have done with the hours wasted. This work is all for a greater goal. Five years from now I won’t be thinking about whatever grade I receive on this assignment.

  • Lucille commented on the post, tires 7 years, 11 months ago

    I wait anxiously, staring at the clock as the seconds creep by. It has been too long, it is always too long. Four wheels carry you to where I am.

  • Lucille commented on the post, still 7 years, 12 months ago

    Winter air surrounds us’ caressing, icy, kisses. Falling, fluttering, flakes land silently on our shoulders in the light of a full moon. There is peace here.

  • Lucille commented on the post, dense 8 years ago

    The forest here is much more dense than it was near her old home in the Midwest. The trees juxtaposed the population of her new town, nearly a tenth of the population of her old one. It’s colder here. She needed to get used to that.

  • Lucille commented on the post, concern 8 years, 1 month ago

    What worries me about this is how easy it is. Loving you is effortless. People have always told me that you have to work hard to make love last…so why don’t we?

  • Lucille commented on the post, chance 8 years, 1 month ago

    There is only a one letter difference between chance and change.

  • Lucille commented on the post, chance 8 years, 1 month ago

    In every move we make together, every step forward, there is a chance it will lead to everything falling apart. Each kiss, could be our last kiss because in an instant either one of us could change our minds.

  • Lucille commented on the post, elastic 8 years, 2 months ago

    You and I are connected, as if by a rubber band. When we’re far apart, the connection stretches to accommodate, and snaps right back when we come together. I wonder though, when the weeks apart drag on…how much stretching can this bond take?

  • Lucille commented on the post, boiling 8 years, 2 months ago

    They say a watched pot never boils, but the expression rarely applies to heating water. It just means that if you’re looking and waiting for something to happen, it isn’t going to happen. You must focus your attention elsewhere, and be caught off guard by the boiling water.

  • Lucille commented on the post, cigarette 8 years, 3 months ago

    Odi et amo. I am not a smoker, but my family smokes. I hate going out and smelling like cigarettes, I do my best to avoid it. But, there’s something in them that has the smell of home.

  • Lucille commented on the post, honest 8 years, 3 months ago

    They weren’t looking at each other, they couldn’t. With their eyes fixed to their shoelaces, they contemplated the words that had just been spoken. They seemed to linger in the air, their presence almost tangible; these words that could not be unsaid.

  • Lucille commented on the post, wade 8 years, 3 months ago

    The sun is beating down on his back as they enter the water. He wishes he had brought a bathing suit; he had not known it would be this hot. He contemplates swimming anyway. The water is as blue as her eyes and sparkles the same way they do. She sparkles. He loves the way […]

  • Lucille commented on the post, wade 8 years, 3 months ago

    I didn’t bring my bathing suit so I only take a few steps into the lake, cautious of the waves that wet the bottom of my shorts. You dive in and swim far out, you are a much better swimmer than I am. You seem to want to put distance between us, maybe thinking this […]

  • Lucille commented on the post, crush 8 years, 3 months ago

    Sitting near the willow in your backyard, we share an orange crush. The sunlight passes through the glass, casting orange light on our legs. I remember someone telling me once that orange is the happiest color; in that moment, I have to agree.

  • Lucille commented on the post, intense 8 years, 4 months ago

    This word would describe the way every emotion was with you. When you made me happy, I was intensely happy, when you upset me (which was much more often) I was intensely upset. I fell for you hard, and I loved the rush of emotions you provided. In the end, I can only handle so […]

  • Lucille commented on the post, embraced 8 years, 4 months ago

    At the end of a long and horrible day, your arms are what I crave the most. The warmth, and love and friendship and comfort found in them can erase nearly any hardship. When we are apart, days like today get much more difficult.
