    We were going to have a party. After Mollie’s doctor’s appointment, the one where she was going to find out the baby’s sex, we were going to have a party. But the party never happened, because the baby would never […]

    Maybe one day, I’ll write songs and sing on an album and it will go platinum.

  • Kira commented on the post, alarmist 7 years, 7 months ago

    Is that even a word? Alarmist? Someone who sets alarms? Someone who stops alarms? Someone who is alerted when an alarm goes off? Or maybe it’s someone who is alarmed all the time! Just totally alarmed, every moment of every day. Alarmist. It doesn’t even look like a word anymore.

    The tires skidded along the worn pavement, jolting over the unsteady patches and bumps in the tired road. She sat in the car and cried, trying to drive through the waterworks streaming down her cheeks.

    Why is this even a prompt?

  • Kira commented on the post, automatic 7 years, 8 months ago

    I don’t think or breathe. I see you and the whole world stops. I spin, in orbit, around you, my sun. Without a thought, you are the focus and I swing around mindlessly, ignoring the jeers and stares of the others. They don’t understand. They’ll never understand the automatic pull you have over me.

    And she knew now that it wouldn’t just be enough to sit and watch the world. Time was hers, and she must use that to her advantage. It was obvious that waiting would do nothing but still her heart… she was much too young for that. It was time to start again.

  • Kira commented on the post, radical 7 years, 8 months ago

    Radically new ideas. What seems ridiculous, but will indeed change our world. It takes the radical to live the practical. Without insanity, there can be no normalcy. We are defined by the radical.

  • Kira commented on the post, castle 7 years, 8 months ago

    There is a castle on a cloud. I like to go there in my sleep. Aren’t any floors for me to sweep… not in my castle on a cloud. There is a lady all in white, holds me and sings a lullaby. She’s dah dah dah and she’s soft to touch. She says, “Cosette, I […]

  • Kira commented on the post, warfare 7 years, 8 months ago

    Warfare breaks my heart. Why are we doing this, killing the people of our planet? It’s the saddest thing we could ever do, dropping bombs. Really. Massacre of our brothers and sisters… I can’t even comprehend the severity of the situation. And although I am supportive of the soldiers themselves, I couldn’t be more against […]

  • Kira commented on the post, advice 7 years, 8 months ago

    I try to give it. I receive it a lot from people who have no idea what they’re talking about. Sometimes I get random questions on tumblr that I try to fumble and answer… to no avail. I think that advice can only be taken so far: you have to come up with your own […]

  • Kira commented on the post, scout 7 years, 8 months ago

    I just read this book about a Boy Scout group in which one teen dies on a hiking trip from lack of water. So I picture them running through the brush, stumbling, trying to find any liquid to save themselves. Or Scout, from To Kill a Mockingbird, which is really quite a good book. Books, […]

  • Kira commented on the post, compassion 7 years, 8 months ago

    I adore this word. I like to think it describes me. Compassionate, loving, caring. I would like to incorporate compassion into my career someday. It’s the main thing we’ve got going for us humans. Love. Hugging each other. Empathy. I wish we all had more of that. Makes me sad that our world is so […]

  • Kira commented on the post, spring 7 years, 8 months ago

    Hope springs eternal. Birth, the birth of all that is fresh and all that is new. Finally being able to breathe again. Clear skies and seeing the moon during the day. Morning moon with fluffy clouds. Feeling like anything could happen in that moment, because there is CLEAN. FRESH. SPRING.

  • Kira commented on the post, conviction 7 years, 8 months ago

    This is final. There is no going back. Once the words are spoken, once the actions are complete, nothing can be removed. Your life can and WILL change immediately. In the blink of your eye, everything you know is gone. You are convicted… nothing is the same. Change.

  • Kira commented on the post, stacks 7 years, 8 months ago

    i think of books. a lovely library… buried underneath and in between the rows of literature. the smell, the aroma, of old books. knowing that you can and will be instantly transported to any and every world possible. possibility. wonder. READING. i sit in libraries almost every day, and never get sick of being surrounded […]

  • Kira commented on the post, iron 7 years, 8 months ago

    oh dear, i just wrote about this, when i wasn’t signed in.

    iron. strength. tough, inside and out. perseverance, but with a hint of vulnerablity: rust. water, the smooth and silky, can break down the strong outer edge. no one knows what will happen next. hmm. iron. yes, iron.
