• Annie commented on the post, wet 6 years, 5 months ago

    she felt the rush
    as she stood on the edge, and peered at the ravine
    and she felt impossibly tiny
    and the rain fell above her,
    and her face was wet and shined under the night sky
    and she closed her eyes and […]

  • Annie commented on the post, wet 6 years, 5 months ago

    damn it i love you
    rain drops falling and windows are cloudy
    and umbrellas are vibrant in umber
    and nothingness
    and i see clouds
    and I see your face
    and we have nothing in common
    but i kiss you […]

  • Annie commented on the post, fawn 6 years, 5 months ago

    daylight breaks on the brink of a horizon that isn’t quite there yet
    the fog rolls in and out
    in a never ending pattern
    and the fawn stands
    blinks his eyes
    and waits

  • Annie commented on the post, instrumental 6 years, 10 months ago

    instrumentals dancing and humming through her mind
    like the whir of a clock
    all in precision time
    the smooth sounds of imperfection
    as blisters and bruises formed
    and she felt weightless under the warmth of the sun

  • Annie commented on the post, abstract 7 years, 4 months ago

    she squinted towards the slants of light coming through the stained glass
    as it made bright patterns on the stained linoleum
    it was abstract
    something not quite there
    but somehow-
    it meant something
    maybe just because she imagined there was hidden meaning
    or maybe just because

  • Annie commented on the post, epiphany 7 years, 4 months ago

    it swirled into consciousness in bursts of grey light
    streamed down her cheeks in droplets and tears
    filled the hollow hole in the back of her heart with something
    not quite there
    but slightly resembling that light at the end of a tunnel

  • Annie commented on the post, edge 7 years, 5 months ago

    on the edge of the shelf sat the bottle
    reflecting glints of gold in the late summer afternoon
    she stared,
    and waited
    and wanted
    and reach
    let go, and it shattered, spilled all over the floor

  • Annie commented on the post, braid 7 years, 5 months ago

    when we’re teenagers, we think our lives are intertwined
    braided, like the cornsilk row that cascaded down her back when she was small
    she distractedly touches her now shorn hair
    and wipes the tears from her eyes
    and waits

  • Annie commented on the post, half 7 years, 5 months ago

    two halves of a whole?
    love is infinite to anyone who shuts their eyes
    and holds tight onto nothing
    and as she keeps pulling, on what she thought
    was always going to be hers
    the string snapped
    the balloon floated away
    a tiny speck on the horizon
    nothing.

  • Annie commented on the post, playground 7 years, 5 months ago

    and every afternoon he would sit on the last swing on the right the one above the puddle and next to the blades of grass fighting against the smothering asphalt and he would pick at his peanut butter and jelly watch his classmates run and the little girl with the red glasses and the shy […]

  • Annie commented on the post, crouch 7 years, 6 months ago

    she squinted into the sunlight
    from her quiet place behind the birch
    and watched as the tears on her cheeks made patterns into
    the dirt
    like stars
    always hiding,
    afraid of nothing

  • Annie commented on the post, concern 7 years, 6 months ago

    fake love and concern swirls in his eyes
    as he squeezes out plastic wrapped tears
    that mean nothing
    dripping down your cheeks
    and they kiss,
    and she runs
    and the sun keeps burning.

  • Annie commented on the post, account 7 years, 6 months ago

    oh please, don’t stop on my account
    continue swirling words around your tongue
    so they roll from your lips like a half hummed tune
    sweetly sinister
    ringing in my ears, even as i fall asleep
    more truths go untold
    i can see that in your eyes.

  • Annie commented on the post, clipped 7 years, 6 months ago

    cancelled out my restless speech
    clipped my phrases, stopped my breath
    made me think that eloquence could roll off my tongue seamlessly
    in all the crafted lies you told

  • Annie commented on the post, insect 7 years, 6 months ago

    you look at me like an insect
    you treat me like i’m one too
    insignificant, small
    something until you want me to be nothing
    and i’m submissive
    you crush me
    and i still love you

  • Annie commented on the post, ant 7 years, 6 months ago

    she was hopeless against the magnifying glass
    shoved up against her, making cherry stained shadows
    across the grass
    and she stared up
    at pinpricks of stars across a bloodshot sky
    and wondered what else there was to life
    besides the insignificance of being

  • Annie commented on the post, division 7 years, 6 months ago

    and the building fell
    soundlessly, seamlessly
    like a dream or vision
    beginning with a careful crack
    and the sky trembled a violent blue
    and as the heavens opened up and shouted all through
    the quiet night
    the building shook in hues of grey
    and then disappeared into calculated mist.

  • Annie commented on the post, pepper 7 years, 6 months ago

    red leather hits the tongue like a cracked salt shaker
    spilling all over the counter
    and blue rivers pour down her eyes
    bittersweet sorrow mixed with fire in her mouth
    closes her eyes, chews swallows
    thinks about lost love, life and spice

  • Annie commented on the post, sponge 7 years, 6 months ago

    luminescent countertop reflects a slight spot of dirt of the walls
    and the cracked basin is winking back at the faucet on the sink
    the sponge sits on a shelf above
    waiting patiently for it’s turn to be noticed

  • Annie commented on the post, mist 7 years, 6 months ago

    she glanced through the slow settling mist
    at the mysterious figure with eyes the color of ocean blue
    and sadness, and nights long lost
    and the rain trickled down her shoulders
    she blinked, and he was gone
