• Laurie R. commented on the post, pins 7 years, 8 months ago

    I’m going to go drown myself.

    In history. In memories. Not in cowardice, but in guts. In pins and needles. In hunger. Not in sleep, but in pain.

    And most definitely not in words. Because although as hard as […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, heartache 7 years, 8 months ago

    Today, OneWord.com gave me the word “heartache”. Of course it would be “heartache”, just when I came here to write about anything else so I could get my mind off of you. Our lives are complicated now, everything […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, blaze 7 years, 8 months ago

    Set your dreams on fire and then fight to keep them alive with all your being. If you fail, the burns on your hand will remind you how hard you tried and the ambition in your eyes will remind you to try and try again.

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, rainy 7 years, 8 months ago

    When it’s rainy outside, and the clouds hang over me, breathing on my shoulder, I feel dreary. I feel burdened. I feel more weight is put upon me, just like clothes feel heavier when they are damp. Single sheets […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, capture 7 years, 8 months ago

    I wish I could capture time, more than just in a measly photograph. I want to capture it and play with it over and over again, relieve the moments that I treasure with every inch of my being. Then, time would not […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, catcher 7 years, 8 months ago

    Falling is such a scary thing, whether it be from height or love, and I know that one day I will experience both at the same time. My heart dangles from a string, but slowly all these feelings of pain and […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, pattern 7 years, 8 months ago

    I was told once that “history repeats itself”. What can I do to make sure this isn’t so? Every step I take seems to be repetitive, every person I meet seems to remind me of someone from the past. It’s a pattern, a […]

    Isn’t this nice? Sitting here with each others’ company? Flirting as if we just met and thought the other was cute? Simplicity at its finest.

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, clue 7 years, 9 months ago

    You don’t get it, you don’t have a clue. I’m trying to save us. The closer we get to the ultimate expression of love, while I am not yet “in love” with you, the farther I feel I want to get away from you.

    I’m […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, adopt 7 years, 10 months ago

    “You should have met me a year ago.”
    No, I like how you are now. If this is your transition period, if you are in the process of adopting a viewpoint on relationships completely opposite than what you used to […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, walls 7 years, 10 months ago

    They say walls have ears
    But do walls have eyes?
    Do walls have mouths?
    Could they tell you a story if you wanted to hear one?

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, camera 7 years, 10 months ago

    My second pair of eyes for when I cannot remember what happened last night. Another opportunity to relive the moment, to revel in the times that make me so happy. Do not tell me to put my camera away, do not tell […]

    “What would you like to do, Chief?”

    “Whatever you want to do, Princess.”

    Epic is such a dumb, over-and-misused word.

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, wagon 7 years, 10 months ago

    If I sit on a wagon, you can push me. You can pull me. Bring me in whatever direction you please.

    But I am not on a wagon. I’m on a flying carpet. Free to come and go with the wind. Hold on to the thread I […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, view 7 years, 12 months ago

    Who knew that such physical moves could change my perspective on something so emotional? I do not view you as a potential lover anymore. A potential lover would have waited, instead of given in to such temptation.

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, stunning 8 years ago

    She wanted to look pretty. She wanted to look different in your eyes. She looked at herself in the mirror, and all she saw was…a mess. She wasn’t put together, she was thrown together. She wanted to be stunning, but instead her looks stunned her into shy silence.

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, solitaire 8 years ago

    I like you. I really do. I think you are funny. I think you’re smart, and you’ve got your head in the right place. You’ve become incredibly good looking since we’ve met. But just as fast as I started liking you, I’m ready to stop. I don’t like guessing games, I don’t like uncertainty. This […]

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, left 8 years ago

    I’m lying on my left arm, resting my head on your left shoulder. Tell me, doesn’t this just feel right? It may not be right forever, but it is what feels right for now.

  • Laurie R. commented on the post, positively 8 years ago

    I changed my perspective, therefore changing my life. I no longer look at my scars and thing, “What a sad life I lead”, but instead positively believe “I wouldn’t be who I am without them.
