    Lillies of the Valley spring forth from the night. I picture their petals dripping with dew, practically smelling their sweet scent as I picture that night, immersed in the memories.

    “What’s your favourite flower”, he asks again, sighing as he tries to reset my password for me.

  • Ellen commented on the post, champagne 7 years, 5 months ago

    I held my glass of champagne tightly, excitement tingling through my bones. 5…4…3…2…1…We cheered loudly as the clock struck, ringing in the new year. We raised our glasses high and tossed them back. Here’s to new opportunities, second chances, a fresh start. Here’s to new adventures. A life across the border. Here’s to you, 2012.

  • Ellen commented on the post, carved 7 years, 5 months ago

    I carved my name into his back and spit. How dare he walk away with everything that mattered to me? My nails shattered as I clenched my fists. I kicked him down and walked away, filled with remorse. How could I hurt him? Even if he broke every part of me, I would still need […]

  • Ellen commented on the post, study 7 years, 6 months ago

    I should really study. I have 3 tests next week. In fact, I have an essay due tomorrow that I’ve barely started. But I miss my William. I miss being loved. I miss everything I had and gave up. I want to wallow in misery and I want to forget it all. But I can’t. […]

  • Ellen commented on the post, optimism 8 years, 5 months ago

    Optimisim is easy when you’re happy. It’s hard when you’re tired and alone and confused and the world seems dark. I’m optimistic, but it’s a tiny ray of hope shining in the darkness. I’m hoping beyond all hope, but I’m sane enough to know, it will probably all go wrong.

  • Ellen commented on the post, temper 8 years, 6 months ago

    She had an even temper; stayed calm, cool, and collective through all the proceedings. She never let anyone know what was going on in her head. She seemed so soft, sweet, and understanding. But under the surface of her relaxed features, the tension was every building.

    Until
    the day

    she snapped.

  • Ellen commented on the post, willow 8 years, 6 months ago

    Crept down under the willow tree,
    Hid away so the world couldn’t see.
    I cried my tears on the roots of that tree,
    giving it life from the pain in me.

  • Ellen commented on the post, closed 8 years, 6 months ago

    My eyes are closed. I’m thinking about you. About the way your arms feel around me, the sound of your voice, the scent of your hair. I open my eyes, but I’m still thinking about you. I can’t get you off of my mind, can’t focus on anything else. You’re all I want, you’re like […]

  • Ellen commented on the post, stage 8 years, 7 months ago

    Center stage. Hit the lights. Shooting star. Don’t look out, just face the crowd, and show them who you are. Love it or leave it, don’t let them see you cry.

    Just be. And be alright.

  • Ellen commented on the post, sunlight 8 years, 8 months ago

    The dappled sunlight streamed through the jungle branches, dazzling light falling on the forest floor. I laid amongst the needles and fell asleep to the sound of the macaws. When I awoke, it was no longer there.

  • Ellen commented on the post, left 8 years, 8 months ago

    I left him today. He’s gone. Gone from my life. I walked out the door and never looked back, left on an adventure to the farthest corners of the world. No one will miss me and I won’t miss them.

    Until the night comes and the rains fall. Then I will cry alone.

  • Ellen commented on the post, tale 8 years, 8 months ago

    She wove a tale of love and loss, without a word she wrote a novel, capturing the hearts of all who saw her; hypnotizing them with her graceful movements and the stars in her hair.

  • Ellen commented on the post, overjoyed 8 years, 9 months ago

    I am overjoyed to be talking to you, to know you, to be with you. I can’t believe life can get this good. I love you

  • Ellen commented on the post, leash 8 years, 11 months ago

    Unleash it all. The power, the emotion, the wind in your soul. Free yourself.

  • Ellen commented on the post, pleased 8 years, 11 months ago

    I am pleased that you came over. Because you are nice. And I like you. I am pleased that you are mine. In fact, tonight, I am pleased with everything. Because we ought to be pleased always – life is good. And you are a large part of that good.

  • Ellen commented on the post, beach 8 years, 11 months ago

    You can’t go to the beach in the rain.

    Well, you can, but you have to be in the right mood. You have to be exhilerated in the lashing water and the booming thunder. You can’t be miserable and sad and lonely.

    Like I am.

  • Ellen commented on the post, driven 9 years ago

    I have been driven to the edge. I want change. I want you to KNOW what I need – I’m tired of having to tell you. It seems like it should be so obvious, so why can’t you tell? I don’t want you to not be enough. I don’t want you to not be good […]

  • Ellen commented on the post, remark 9 years ago

    Remark is a good word. I need to use it more in regular conversation.

    “Well, so-and-so remarked earlier that…”

    It’d be a good time.

  • Ellen commented on the post, science 9 years ago

    I believe in science.

    My Dad is a scientist – a physicist. But very religious. I love this about him.

    He wanted me to be a science student of some sort. But this year, I realized that that’s not what I want. I want to be an anthropology student and nothing’s going to stop me.

  • Ellen commented on the post, century 9 years ago

    A life rarely lasts a century. Yet so many centuries have passed since time began. How short our lives are; so little time to make a mark in the world. Does anything we do even matter?
