• Everything comes to a complete stop
    As she stares into the middle distance
    There is nothing in the silence
    and she can’t see tomorrow
    She wishes that everything could be easy
    but it’s not
    The sun sets below the horizon.
    She doesn’t want to wake up in the morning.

    As a child, i would work to grind rocks into dust against the pavement. There was just something about the feeling of it that fascinated me. I would spend hours crushing rocks into dust just to see how much I […]

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, dusk 7 years, 5 months ago

    Dusk has always reminded me of the end. The end of the day, the end of a life. The end of our world. But dusk falls everyday, like clockwork. It’s not ending. It’s not changing.

    It’s all just in my mind.

    March 24th, 2010. You showed up. Your wrists were cut. There was blood on my front porch. And on my hands. You were crying. And i didn’t know what to do. So I just let you cry And I cleaned your cuts. And you stayed for dinner. And you smiled at everybody. Did I save […]

  • Car rides.
    A panorama of lights and sounds.
    Life
    Passing by too quickly
    But we sit still inside.

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, sleeve 7 years, 5 months ago

    And only she knows they’re there
    You can only hide them so well,
    Each incision you made to drain out the pain
    You’ve been wearing sleeves for years
    To keep it all out of sight.
    But she knows they’re there
    And she’s willing to save you.
    Just let her.

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, temple 7 years, 5 months ago

    They told her she was cursed. They told her to visit the temple to undo what has been done to her family. She hides away on the plane, because she had no money to buy the ticket to fly over seas. She is determined to fix this mess.

  • You walk around with your nose in the air, thinking that you’re better than us. You pretend that your opinion is the only one that matters. I’m tired of listening to you tell me that everything I do is wrong. I’m tired of hearing you say the words “I’m better than her” everytime you see […]

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, gown 7 years, 5 months ago

    And there she stood, in my doorway, dressed in a red gown. Her dark brown hair had been pinned up in an intricate fashion. She wore no make-up, but that’s okay. She doesn’t need it. She’s beautuful just the way she is. We both smile. “Are you ready to leave?” I asked, straightening out my […]

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, beckon 7 years, 5 months ago

    The soft moonlight is beckoning for her to move forward, down the vacant midnight streets. The hot summer air sticks to her skin, but she couldn’t care less. She just needs out. Out of that house. Out of the way. Out of her life. Out of her mind. She needs out.

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, view 7 years, 5 months ago

    The view from the bay window was the same as always, except somehow different. I couldn’t quite place it. Maybe it was the snow, or the fallen branches. Or possibly the lack of cars, and people. It’s late, nobody’s around. The streetlights turned everything orange, and I can’t tell you how, but something is different.

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, sneaky 7 years, 5 months ago

    Like an owl
    Attracting no attention,
    You soar swiftly through the night
    And into our lives
    Eyes meeting eyes
    Hearts synchronized.
    Nobody saw this coming.

  • Platinum hair came into view above the shelves in the library. I smile to myself. He was never quite tall enough, it seemed, but he towered over me. Quinn walked toward me, a grin breaking out as he saw me sitting at the table I’d saved for us. “Hey, Xander,” he said. My heart beat […]

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, return 7 years, 5 months ago

    He’d left. And I always thought it was permanent. He was one of the only male figures in my life that I thought would remain constant, unlike my father. But then he left. But it wasn’t permanent. Two years later, he returned and everything was okay again. We were best friends again.

  • Kasey Nicole commented on the post, deserve 7 years, 5 months ago

    Darling, you don’t deserve to be treated that way. You shouldn’t be ignored. You shouldn’t be forgotten. If it’s any consolation, i haven’t stopped thinking about you since you moved away, and I can’t wait to see you this Christmas. I want to be with you as much as possible in the two weeks you’re […]

  • Walking into the room, i realized that this wasn’t going to be like any other home. Nothing matched. The furniture was all different from one another and the carpets were stained. The thing is though is that it all looked okay together. It was kind of a reflection of this old lady’s mind. But the […]
