    The table was piled up high. Shiny platters littered the table. Barely any space to fit people around it. Oh the decadence. Oh the shame

    It was a lazy kind of day. She dragged her feet underneath her, feeling all too lethargic. Maybe it was the heat of the sun pelting through the windows; not a breath of air coming through the shutters.

    He grabbed her tightly. Supporting her. Wrapping her in his arms. He whispered something softly in her ear. But what; she didn’t quite catch. And they let the world pass by.

    She was pure gold. With a smile that lit up the room. You knew when she was around.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, veteran 5 years, 1 month ago

    I see plenty of these coming through my door. Daily. Each one bruised and battered. Each one with a story to tell. Each one with a certain something that you just can’t quite put your finger on.

    You hurt my heart when you say nothing. It holds back my soul from letting it feel what it ultimately does. It tangles me in knots. It has no pretty bows. It just hurts my heart when you say nothing.

    The page become a playground. The only place where one world could be lost, and another world created; where another reality could take form.

    This starlit night is not bright enough to show me the details of your face. And my mind can’t quite conjure up enough to form a vivid picture.

    Life was flickering before their eyes. And yeh, people sat and watched. They nibbled on popcorn and giggled at the funny bits. I don’t know if anyone stayed for the entire film though. Maybe it got too boring. Or maybe it just got uncomfortable.

    Twisting and turning, she lost her way. Disoriented she stumbled, struggling just to stay on her feet. The wind was calling her name, but she couldn’t quite make it to the shore.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, unplanned 5 years, 3 months ago

    This whole thing didn’t go as she had planned. But yet, her whole world came crashing in around her that day. This world is which she lived was not real. No, this was not reality.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, flee 5 years, 7 months ago

    There is this one thing that needs to be mentioned in life. This one thing that bothers the very core of existence. We are programmed to flee. Programmed to run and hide.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, baffled 5 years, 7 months ago

    I never thought that it would come to this. As I stand there, peering through the foggy window. A small child’s hand print still smeared across the bottom edge. I rub my eyes a few times but the image before me remains. Although it baffles me, I know that this is it. This isn’t in my head, a mere figment of my imagination.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, hell 5 years, 8 months ago

    It wasn’t like all the books and movies described it. There was no fire. It wasn’t particularly hot. No-one had tails or horns. No….it was much worse. There was emptiness. There was nothingness.

    How could you even measure the space in between you and me?

  • esky1118 commented on the post, overjoyed 5 years, 8 months ago

    When I’m quiet, that’s when I’m most heard. When I’m sitting in that deep dark silence, that’s when I know the most. When I have tears running down my face, that’s when I’m most overjoyed.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, timid 5 years, 8 months ago

    Wanting to scream. To pull a few hairs out. To punch something. Tipping furniture over on it’s back. That was the way it was inside.
    Not quite on the exterior though. Appearing timid. So quiet and placid and serene.

    Mixed roots. Yeh. He could relate to that.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, ravenous 5 years, 8 months ago

    Every night. Sitting around that old boat wood table. He would engulf. Ravenous. Without cease.

  • esky1118 commented on the post, historic 5 years, 8 months ago

    It was an historic occasion. I don’t really know why. But something in the air, the way it smelt, told me that it was. This was going to be a part of me, of this place, for a very long time.
