    He stepped onto the ship.
    “See you soon.”
    “See you.”
    But I never did.

  • Dulcie commented on the post, late 6 years, 4 months ago

    I know I am too late as I walk in the door, much too late to go unnoticed, so I abort the idea of sneaking in quietly. Nicholas waits for me on the love seat, staring ahead.
    “Where have you been?”
    “Out.”
    “I told you to be back by nine.”
    “It’s saturday. The traffic was bad.” Why am I still in this? Fear begins to form in a hard knot in the…[Read more]

    The ocean lets forth a mighty roar as I step into it.
    I find I am afraid.

  • Dulcie commented on the post, fawn 6 years, 6 months ago

    The lights are flashing, and the music is vulgar and so, so loud. And all around you are people, smashed together, sweating together, crowding in a huge pit of delirum. And dancing, dancing in the worst sense of […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, together 6 years, 7 months ago

    I am trying to stay soft.
    And have togetherness.
    But friendships are tapestries
    and threads unravel.
    At least they are for me.
    And my thoughts are becoming more crude.
    And my outlook is so wide at the edges […]

    Maybe it’s time to trust again.

  • Dulcie commented on the post, binding 6 years, 7 months ago

    It occurs to me all at once that what I am about to say will be binding.
    Each new passing second is a gasping breath.
    Two words. Just say them, just say them.
    No way out. Trapped. Lace clouds my vision, chokes […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, stillness 6 years, 7 months ago

    Afterwards, the silence is deafening. The stillness hurts me.
    He kisses my forehead and rolls over to the other side of the bed.
    I am cold. I can feel the imprint of his lips still lingering on my skin.
    Snow is […]

    Mme. Cordilia sits stifly in her chair. Her fingers drum out a steady pattern on the desk in front of her, and her eyes are trained on the elaborate tapestry that hangs opposite her. Upon entering the room, one […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, refuse 6 years, 7 months ago

    I am the half-girl
    The one who is loving, kind, good, free;
    the one who is cynical, too quick to speak, proud, envious.
    The one who seems like she doesn’t care what peaople think and
    the one who really […]

    I want to be amazed.

  • Dulcie commented on the post, camera 6 years, 8 months ago

    He peers through his camera lense until he spots something worth capturing.
    A woman in the park, wearing a dress and tights and a coat and a winter hat.
    Carrying a starbucks cup and a book.
    He can see her […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, cabinet 6 years, 8 months ago

    That was the year we remodeled the kitchen cabinets,
    because the old ones were too old; the paint was chipping a little and they creaked just barely when you opened them. And my mother said,
    “It’s time for a […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, stretcher 6 years, 9 months ago

    “But imagine my position, one so cruelly unique.” He laughs a bitter, coughing chuckle. “Imagine, hypothetically, a man being carted in on a stretcher, in critical condition. Blood seeping out on the sheets. He’s […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, adviser 6 years, 9 months ago

    The professor walked a few paces ahead of us.
    “And this,” he says as we pass a young man seated behind a desk, “Is my assistant and most trusted adviser.”
    The desk is placed in the unlikely area of the middle […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, crust 6 years, 9 months ago

    And in his tiny kitchen with the blue wallpaper, a day’s worth of dishes piled up in his sink, I came to the sinking realization that I knew almost nothing about this man I had run off with. I knew his favorite […]

    Books. Books and literature, I have learned, are often the distributors of the most ingenious thoughts.

  • Dulcie commented on the post, chat 6 years, 10 months ago

    Oh, you already know what will happen.
    You’ll go there tonight, and you’ll stay later than you plan.
    He’ll be staring at you across the room all night, trying to work up the courage to come over and speak to […]

  • Dulcie commented on the post, grind 6 years, 10 months ago

    Under the strobe lights (I used to love coming alive underneath them),
    That is where i saw her, at one in the morning,
    grinding up against some other guy.
    Doubtless she was drunk,
    off of beers he had bought […]
