    Deserve it? What do you think you deserve? You don’t deserve anything? And the world owes you nothing. It was here long before you were and will remain long after. Deserve. Entitled, you mean….

    There was stable over to the side, dark and cool inside. Horses snorted and stirred at the unfamiliar scents of the intruder. But he seemed friendly enough,k and with an apple or sugar cube their loyalties were easily swayed.

    Don’t slouch. Don’t be late. Don’t mumble. Don’t smile. Don’t talk. Be still and be quiet. Don’t interrupt. Don’t be rude. Don’t laugh.Don’t do or be anything. Just exist….

    Anywhere. Anywhere but here. I don’t care where you are going, just take me with you. I can fly on stand by. Leave it all behind, and never look back. There’s nothing here anyway. I’d rather be anywhere.

    The city skyline grew darker as the sun slipped below the horizon. Then suddenly it grew brighter, everyone turning on lights, the city coming alive as if on cue. Tonight was New Years Eve and the city lived.

    The candle dimmed as a breeze swept in though the open window threatening to put it out. Its shadow danced along the wall, its light glistened on her tears.

    Study hard, keep your nose in a book and hopefully you can catch a ride on the scholarship train. Because let me tell you, I ain’t paying for it. You want to better yourself, change your life, great! But do it yourself, and on your own terms.

  • jasmith commented on the post, laughter 7 years, 10 months ago

    Laughter is the best medicine, although it only seems to be around when you are already feeling well and have no need for it. Laughter is best shared among friends. But sometimes it is enough to be alone.

  • jasmith commented on the post, hearts 7 years, 10 months ago

    Two hearts, it’s always two, isn’t it? Like one is somehow deficient. Like one is only one because it hasn’t yet become two. Soon. Why do such things always come in pairs…. Two of kind…..

    The orchestra was ready. The players had prepared for this moment. The conductor tapped on his stand the way they are known to do. And a hush fell on the crowd. It was like they all waited for the music to breath for them.

  • jasmith commented on the post, positively 7 years, 10 months ago

    Positively, absolutely, not. There is no way I am letting that happen. No. End of discussion. I don’t care that you want to have a new experience and keep an open mind. No way is that happening. Ever. Okay?

  • jasmith commented on the post, prints 7 years, 10 months ago

    Prints. These are all original prints. Signed by the artist. Very exclusive. Collectible. Very expensive.

    I wasn’t sure. They looked like knock offs to me.

  • jasmith commented on the post, patent 7 years, 10 months ago

    I tried to get a patent once. I had the best idea ever. An idea to end all ideas and i knew it would be awesome. Turns out most people already knew what a widget was and didn’t really want one anyway.

    Autumn. Fall. Leaves. Color. Cooler. Winter coming. Cold. Leaves dead, blown away, gone. Cold. Desolation. Snow. The Christmas. and joy. A New year. Endless possibilities.

  • jasmith commented on the post, combination 7 years, 10 months ago

    It was a combinations of things. Little unnoticeable things that shouldn’t have mattered. But they accumulated and became more than the sum of their parts. The dishes left undone. Hair left in the shower. Infuriating.

  • jasmith commented on the post, profound 7 years, 10 months ago

    Profound statement. Very profound. Too profound to be coming from you. You couldn’t have set this up on your own. You couldn’t have known. Who’s working with you or who are you working for? Who?

  • jasmith commented on the post, epiphany 7 years, 10 months ago

    I had an epiphany. I realized that what I was doing, was not what I wanted to be doing. And it hit me, hard that this was my life, what I had made it, what I had let it become. Best get to work setting things right.

  • jasmith commented on the post, passionate 7 years, 10 months ago

    Passionate. About what? I’ve never been passionate about anything. Except maybe my writing. It’s lonely. But enough.

  • jasmith commented on the post, still 7 years, 11 months ago

    Be still my heart. Be still. Calm yourself. Why are you beating so rapidly? What has frightened you? Why, it’s love, something rarely seen and seldom lived.
