    “Help me.”
    But there was nothing, just dark heaviness, just the too-heavy too-cold blankets she couldn’t pull high enough to drown herself in. No response. Nobody there. No life. No backup. No fail-safe. No […]

  • Liz commented on the post, racket 6 years, 11 months ago

    Loud, overwhelming, booming sound. You are compressed into a tiny ball by a thousand beating wings assaulting every sense. There is nothing but noise.

  • Liz commented on the post, nest 6 years, 11 months ago

    Warm as anything, deep as anything. Dark and snug. She feels the wind tug gently at her hair but her body is sheltered. So protected. All above is a circular window of the sky framed by black leaves and branches. […]

  • Liz commented on the post, emptying 6 years, 11 months ago

    She empties herself out constantly, rationalising, categorising, sorting, but there’s always more inside. She’s empty but she’s still so full.

    To cap off a fine evening, they walked through the empty botanic gardens and kissed by the river under the stars.

  • Liz commented on the post, hassle 6 years, 11 months ago

    She’s getting careless now. It’s been long enough and she hasn’t been caught. Too much hassle to clean them up like she did, to bag the bloodied tissues and hide the blade. Too much effort to stop the blood […]

    It’s all about fine lines, careful drawing, no smudges, no mistakes. Insane precision. Perfect models. All beautifully prepared. But don’t get emotionally attached to what you create; it can be torn apart in seconds.

    Life is complicated.

  • Liz commented on the post, engine 7 years ago

    Rumbling and whirring. Close to the road. I could feel it through the floor with my feet. That’s the best thing about an old car. Being able to feel the speed and the ground as you go. Feeling the power shaking […]

  • Liz commented on the post, insect 7 years ago

    Crawling all over me. In my skin, over my skin. Under my nails. Writhing in my hair. A thousand tiny clicks and cracks of miniature boneless plates. A million eyes. I am writhing beneath them. I cannot breathe.

  • Liz commented on the post, disregard 7 years ago

    Disregard. To have no regard. To not care? To simply overlook something. I have great disregard for people who disregard others.

  • Liz commented on the post, lending 7 years ago

    Lending people things isn’t always a good idea. Particularly not when it’s a book you’re lending. Sorry Laura, I’ve still got that John Green book. I thought about burning it and sending you the video but that is […]
