    don’t ask for specifics.

    inhale, exhale,
    and pretend you know all there is to know.

    don’t ask for answers you know you don’t
    want to hear.

  • Kalina commented on the post, squint 5 years, 6 months ago

    for the fifth time in as many minutes, she
    squinted up at the clock, still wearing
    that dazed expression.

    five minutes ago he told her he
    was leaving

    five minutes ago she’d felt her
    heart shatter at his feet

    five minutes ago she’d lost all
    direction

    and now all she could do was
    watch the second hand
    as it carried him…[Read more]

  • Kalina commented on the post, delve 5 years, 8 months ago

    uncharted waters always make
    us uneasy.

    we don’t like to talk about things:
    we don’t like to talk about
    our flaws, our problems
    the things we take and
    bury deep.

    but the only way to understand is to
    delve into the madness and
    talk to each other

    it’s the only way to move
    forward

  • Kalina commented on the post, tornado 6 years ago

    you were a tornado, and I
    was tired of ordinary.
    I guess I was asking for adventure and
    maybe I was asking for too
    much.

    I thought whirlwinds like you
    only left scattered silence
    but all I could hear was the
    door slamming
    and now instead of your voice
    I can feel the ground pulse beneath
    my feet, leftover reverberations of
    a goodbye…[Read more]

    /weakling/
    words like bullets
    shooting from their dormancy
    within the fire hot chamber
    /weakling, weakling,
    weakling/
    something inside
    icy hot and bursting
    today the world is your
    battleground and you are
    the bullet
    in the chamber

  • Kalina commented on the post, July 6 years, 4 months ago

    july, oh that day in july
    five days past fourteen
    took a look at you and felt like I’d
    been living under a rock for the
    short time i’d been alive
    how naive, how childish,
    how unbearably young I was
    never thought a boy could
    turn me inside out like that
    never thought a shallow attraction
    would bloom into such a worrisome
    disaster.

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

    life is just a door
    simple
    wooden framed
    a handle stuck
    somewhere in the middle
    paint peeling,
    hinges creaking
    there is nothing behind it.
    you simply enter
    and you create your surroundings.
    life is but […]

  • Kalina commented on the post, happy 6 years, 6 months ago

    your smile
    made me want more
    something more
    than just a curve of the lips
    more, perhaps
    your voice
    you
    all of you
    it was desire
    borne from your happiness
    and i entreat
    you
    to please
    do more
    than smile.

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

    we’d make a scene, baby
    people would turn their heads
    and whisper
    and tell me that i’m not worthy
    for your eyes
    for your attention
    for you
    they’d wear their mouths off with
    all that talk
    all that good, […]

  • Kalina commented on the post, jelly 6 years, 10 months ago

    when he smiled
    she turned to jelly
    and when he took her hand
    she melted
    and when everyone saw them
    together
    they said they went together like
    peanut butter
    and jelly
    when he threw her away and
    took her […]

  • Kalina commented on the post, cap 6 years, 10 months ago

    she dropped the bottle cap in the sand
    “why are you here?”
    she asked
    confused
    her face was confused
    and I really didn’t know why I even bothered
    why had I bothered?
    she took a large sip
    of the beer
    lips […]

  • Kalina commented on the post, pressed 7 years, 7 months ago

    life is like a blog
    freshly pressed
    information flows
    flowing information
    pressed
    like the lemonade we’ve all had on a summer day
    refreshing
    freshly pressed
    it’s a part of summer that’s departing
    and a part of life that will always stay with us.
    freshly
    pressed.
