    The colonel comes around once a year, and when he does oh boy… Me and the colonel have had some fun times together. Last year when he came, I couldn’t believe the amount of scratches and carpet burns I had after he left.

    It’s really embarrassing when I pronounce this wrong… I do it all the time too. It’s not like I don’t know how to pronounce it, my brain is just a scumbag and it likes to say things as it see them instead of how it knows to say them.

    I once heard, that we were once beings with two halves and the gods jealous of our lives split people in two. And now we search all our lives for our other half, eternally feeling the hole where they used to be.

    Thoughts are incomplete. Perceptions are incomplete. The world view we hold is incomplete. In our narrow view we only perceive the parts of the world we are accustomed to seeing, missing the vast majority of the universe sitting in front of our eyes.

    My friend is from Manhattan. That city that cultivates dreams and holds them captive within its streets and buildings. Growing on the hopes of its populous.

    At night, I look up at the skies and watch the lights dance above my head. They in an eternal cycel of life, ever changing and never the same as before. The background sky to the show was filled to the brim with specks of light, coming through the black fabric of the universe.

    Everybody always says “headphones on, world off” but I’m finding that recently even headphones can’t block everything out

    If you look a the apartment you’ll see cups and plates strewn across the counters and tables, leftover wrappers tucked bewteen the cushions of the couch. The curtains on the window now only percariously attached on one side, letting sunlight stream in. The whole place was in a stated of disaray and yet, a simple […]

    The internal structure of everyone. No one would like anybody if people could see your bones. If everyone saw what was really inside the world would be completely different.

    Through her clothes you could see them, protruding out sickeningly. When she walked you wondered hoe the wind didn’t blow her over. No matter what she wore, how baggy it was, you could see them, pronouncing to everyone around her that she needs help. Is anyone actually listening?

    “What are you talking about?!” My voice cracked, his incredulous accustations filled my head; where was all this talk coming from? My heart ached in it’s cage, tightening and constricting with every word he flung in my direction. He turned his back to me and without a single glance back, he walked out of the […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, trailer 8 years, 6 months ago

    Walking along the path I had by now memorized by heart I noticed the grass growing in between the cracks in the pavement. I reached his trailer, the pink flamingo his parents had put up sat there faded and staring lifelessly at everyone who walked up the path to the door.

  • Alexis commented on the post, intersection 8 years, 6 months ago

    Traipsing down the sidewalk in her little red shoes she smiled at everyone and patted every dog on the head, looking towards the sky in her own little wonderland. Nearing the end of the sidewalk, her little feet faltered, the intersection was coming up, the one with the rushing cars and blinking lights and funny […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, intersection 8 years, 6 months ago

    Headphones jammed tight into my ears I’m jamming out to my favorite song, the cars zooming by on the street a foot from me. Ten seconds left before I could walk the crosswalk and be on my way. The white digits continued to count down until they reached zero and white figure in walking motion […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, styrofoam 8 years, 6 months ago

    As I watched his hands roam her body and his lips crushed to hers, the styrofoam coffee I had in my hand plummeted to the floor along with my heart. When the cup hit the floor the hot brown liquid splashed all over the floor, just like the many pieces of heart now painting the […]

    This feeling settles in my stomach, almost like it’s hollow, but it happens when you’re arm is against mine. How could just a simple touch do that, though? I’ve touched plenty of people’s arms and yet, that feeling has never occurred before. I don’t know what this feeling is, it’s something different and new, I’m […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, robot 8 years, 6 months ago

    Grasses and other plants had grown up from the cracks in the metal of his chest plate, creating a neat green vest. His legs were completely buried under the ground. Eyes eternally cast upwards to the sky, watching as the clouds and birds and planes drifted on past. Sitting here just watching him, I imagine […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, robot 8 years, 6 months ago

    I see you sitting there everyday, not smiling, not laughing, there’s no light behind your eyes. I wonder what’s going through your mind. I stare at you day in and day out and you’ve never even noticed. I want to be able to put the light in your eyes, I want to be able to […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, robot 8 years, 6 months ago

    I remember when I’d wake up and smile and laugh and be excited for everything. Now I wake up and stare off into space. Nothing is like it used to be, I’m just walking around the halls of my school wishing I could be somewhere else. Somewhere that I can really be free from this […]

  • Alexis commented on the post, acoustic 8 years, 6 months ago

    Her voice bounced off the many walls of the small cavern hidden beneath the waves. The long, complicated way to get here had been well worth the wait. Never before had I heard her sing and now that I had I never wanted the melodic sound to stop.
