• Kerry commented on the post, bellboy 5 years, 8 months ago

    I don’t particularly want to write about a bellboy. Sure you could take so many angles on this prompt, but what’s the point? Mystery, horror, love, adventure. Writing can only do so much for the soul. Mine is worn down. Revitalizing it too difficult for the current state I’m in. Sorry guys maybe this isn’t for me anymore.

  • Kerry commented on the post, antithesis 6 years, 9 months ago

    To be fancy in my description, he was an antithesis to
    myself. When I spent my time curled up with a book under the oak
    tree in my backyard, he was hopping parties and taking so many
    drugs he went under the pseudonym cocktail. Whereas I was dark
    haired and brown eyed, he was Aryan. Usually those kinda guys made
    my blood boil. You just knew that…[Read more]

  • Kerry commented on the post, homeless 6 years, 9 months ago

    A home is somewhere that you feel comfortable. It envelops you in a sense of familiarity and you feel as though you can shed all the necessary layers that society demands of us. It’s where many become their truest self. Though my home is always empty. A family of flight is mine. An occasional hello or watching a t.v. show together is the best I…[Read more]

  • Kerry commented on the post, punished 6 years, 10 months ago

    I hate this punishment. It’s stripped me down to the bone, dried my eyes, and left my soul tattered and flailing in the wind. Even though such torture is aggravating, it is true that I deserve this. What you do in the shadows must come out eventually.

  • Kerry commented on the post, fabricated 6 years, 11 months ago

    The evidence was fabricated. In fact, I’m not even sure there was evidence in this case. The jury was unfairly biased and my judge non-existent. Only whispers and the shifting of facts helping it ripple throughout the school.
    “I know what you did,” one of my best friends said, as she looked at me with disappointed eyes. I braced for the lecture,…[Read more]

  • Kerry commented on the post, bronze 6 years, 11 months ago

    He was etched in bronze. A frozen figure painting a picture of the most honorable hero to ever walk the sweet grasses of Montana. “I still wanna know who killed him,” my best friend whispered to me as the tour guide ushered us through the rest of the museum. “Me too,” I replied, a plan already forming in my mind.

  • Kerry commented on the post, destined 6 years, 11 months ago

    People often tell me that they are destined for something. Greatness, loneliness, riches. It seems like everyone weaves their own tapestry right? But isn’t that opposing the idea of destined? It’s like saying that your and optimist that views the glass as half empty. Think about it.

  • Kerry commented on the post, calamity 6 years, 11 months ago

    Calamity is and interesting word. It’s connotation being something along the lines of ‘mass destruction, terrible misfortune, the end of the world. etc’. Also giving the knowledgeable a sense of dread,despair, and even excitement. All in one tiny word.

  • Kerry commented on the post, listening 6 years, 11 months ago

    Listening is a skill that is hard to come by. As we all sweat underneath the heat of our own personal spotlight, it is difficult to see past it’s blinding light. Squinting out into the world we have trouble comprehending that anything outside of our scope can be relative or important to existence.

  • Kerry commented on the post, pained 6 years, 11 months ago

    The pain on his face cut deep. Every down-trodden look, every half-hearted smile, every almost invisible tear breaking the wall protecting my heart. I’ve never felt regret, especially not in the case of relationships, but this was different. He was getting to me.

  • Kerry commented on the post, director 6 years, 11 months ago

    Everyone is a director. Whether they only direct a few of life’s choices, or they direct the lives of thousands of others, we all make our slight ripple in the world. With that you should find comfort. When your lack of faith in yourself throws you into an ever deepening pit of rage, confusion and heartbreak, allow that fact to come to the surface…[Read more]

  • Kerry commented on the post, terrain 6 years, 11 months ago

    This terrain is strange. I’ve never seen anything like it before in my life. The hills don’t roll, but rather sit perilously still. The sky is no longer a shaded blue, but rather a curious color that gives me a sense of loss. Not even the familiar feeling of wind stirring my hair.

  • Kerry commented on the post, returned 6 years, 11 months ago

    “They have all returned,”he spat at me, almost mocking my failed prediction. No one dared to believe in my black magic, unless I proved myself.
    “Just wait one more moment,” I breathed, waiting for the inevitable.

  • Kerry commented on the post, signals 6 years, 12 months ago

    Body signals do not register. The painful crinkles of your face making not even the slightest impression on my hard drive. “You monster!” you cry, trying to find humanity within me. You fool, that part of my was gone long ago.

  • Kerry commented on the post, flames 6 years, 12 months ago

    The flames lick up my pant legs, enveloping my lower body in one bitter bite. As it spreads into my chest and across my arms, the ashes become all that is left of my existence. Seeping to the ground in a melancholy pile. The flaky, burnt bits of my body settle there for a while, allowing all the resentment I once felt to blow away with the wind.…[Read more]

  • Kerry commented on the post, weakling 6 years, 12 months ago

    I’m not a weakling. My arms may be limp, my legs may be sub-par, my entire body not in the perfect shape, but I am not weak. Whatever comes across my path, I face it. That is what true strength is.

  • Kerry commented on the post, knock 7 years ago

    I hear a knock at the door, but do I dare open it? For all I know it could be the climactic event that will send my future spiraling into the depths of Hades, but I suppose it could change my life for the better as well. This couch is so comfortable though…maybe next time I’ll face the opportunity/burden sitting in my doorway.

  • Kerry commented on the post, bleeding 7 years ago

    I am bleeding on the inside. No it’s not real blood, it’s more like a strong flow of all the doubts and hurdles of life heartily swelling in every vein.

  • Kerry commented on the post, leathery 7 years ago

    What is outside of my house today is the opposite of leathery. It is in fact rather fluffy, and rather that having the hearty brownish color of actual leather, it is a brilliant white coating absolutely everything. Snow day it is.

  • Kerry commented on the post, weathered 7 years ago

    There is a lot in this big old world that you will have to weather. No one will have to weather exactly the same things, but you will all have something. And these things, that seems horrible whenever they come around, are probably the best thing that will ever happen to you. You see, it’s how react to these obstacles that define who you are, and…[Read more]
