    Today I will attend the derby. I will don my hat. I will away myself. To the derby I go…

  • EmilyH commented on the post, damage 5 years, 3 months ago

    I walk upon the stars and feel something crush under my weight. Was it your head? Is it damaged? Have I damaged you? No, it’s just a toy…

  • EmilyH commented on the post, celestial 5 years, 11 months ago

    Little lives preserved in viscous vases plummet to the core. The magnetic belly of the earth beckons and they come, bidden by celestial guardians to seep their souls into its being. They etch their stories into the earth’s membrane; sowing life wherever they fall.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, shows 6 years, 3 months ago

    It shows. When you ache so from your joy or your grief. When you laugh so hard you cry or cry so hard you laugh. It shows. Despite attempts to conceal the emotions they will betray you, leave you vulnerable.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, past 6 years, 4 months ago

    The threat of the regret my past could cost me is ever present. What if I never become what I aspire to? What if I take a wrong turn that can never be rectified?

  • EmilyH commented on the post, local 6 years, 4 months ago

    I don’t want to remain local when I graduate. I want to fly to far away lands, and meet people, and learn new things. Home sickness will be my cross to bare, but it will be worth it.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, institutions 6 years, 5 months ago

    This institution we call success. What is the value of it? How do you measure what changes so constantly? If I don’t know where I am going, but know what I want to do am I a failure in the eyes of my beholders?

  • EmilyH commented on the post, guard 6 years, 5 months ago

    It’s impossible to ever know the entirety of a person. Even if it’s subconscious we keep some part guarded and locked away.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, shown 6 years, 6 months ago

    How can we ever truly know until we are shown?

  • EmilyH commented on the post, entrance 6 years, 6 months ago

    Why do we label doors exits or entrance? What difference does it make to us, to them? Does it give the doors some sense of identity? Do doors even have identities? Or are they just doors…

  • EmilyH commented on the post, possible 6 years, 6 months ago

    How can we deduce what is and is not possible? Our capacity for knowledge is limited by ourselves; we only know what we have words for. And if we can’t know what is possible then how can we say that everything […]

  • EmilyH commented on the post, scene 6 years, 6 months ago

    Suspended in your emotions; reality slows down while your mind speeds up to make up for the lost time. The sounds of your surroundings are amplified as you try to control the feelings that overwhelm you. […]

  • EmilyH commented on the post, walls 6 years, 6 months ago

    We abide in bubbles with mirrored walls. Everything beyond is nonexistant. On occasion when we collide with others do we acknowledge something outside ourselves, but we are forever ignorant.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, various 6 years, 6 months ago

    For various reasons we keep ourselves locked up inside; don the enigmatic black veil. Who can really know us?

  • EmilyH commented on the post, combine 6 years, 6 months ago

    Suspended in perfect harmony, the utterly delirious joy of being accepted, combined without rejection.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, signs 6 years, 6 months ago

    If only the star of Bethlehem was a common day occurrence. If our purpose in life was to follow that sign till it leads us to our destiny. If only…

  • EmilyH commented on the post, hundred 6 years, 6 months ago

    The repitition drives me insane. Monotonous unending rhythm, indifferent to partiality. My mind has memorized the pattern from hundreds and hundreds of ceaseless tolls. Will I ever receive stormy weather, or […]

  • EmilyH commented on the post, breath 6 years, 6 months ago

    Hongi: the exchange of breath, of life. The acknowledgment of breath’s intimacy. A connection of two lives in the same exhale of breath.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, help 6 years, 7 months ago

    Independent; strong. To require help is to be weak. If you are weak you garner no respect. Who cares about admiration when you can have respect? I do not need help. I am not weak; I am strong.

  • EmilyH commented on the post, affairs 6 years, 7 months ago

    Oh, inverted world where yes means no and the ocean has an affair with fire. Confusing labryinth that mislabels it’s meanings. Will we ever break free?
