• Emaline commented on the post, knee 6 years ago

    You don’t realize how dependent you are until something you need gets taken away from you. How much you rely on this one little thing. With an injured knee, there is not much constant in your life.

  • Emaline commented on the post, drifting 7 years, 8 months ago

    Drifting
    side to side,
    watching as all worlds collide.
    Drafting
    your every shot,
    your every move,
    your every thought.
    Deciding
    where you stand
    on this earth we all obsess over.

    Reading the epic was like reading my fortune–a fortune that will determine my next move. I am all out of ideas, so there is just one thing left to do.

  • Emaline commented on the post, function 7 years, 9 months ago

    We cannot function without each other. It’s a sad realization that is difficult to come by, and even more difficult to completely understand. Just like a function cannot be continuous unless all the points are where they should be; we, as humans, cannot function unless everyone is where they should be, playing the role they […]

  • Emaline commented on the post, bland 7 years, 10 months ago

    The bland food was not much, but it was all I could afford. After all, beggars can’t be choosers. I can live with some boring meals; in the long run, I’ll be rewarded. But bland as it might be, it is healthy.

  • Emaline commented on the post, icicle 8 years ago

    Icicles dropping,
    Dripping,
    Drowning out the silence
    With the sound of their
    Crashing,
    Crushing,
    Crippling my hopes.

  • Emaline commented on the post, positively 8 years ago

    Positively. That’s what I thought I was. I guess no one can ever be completely positive of one thing. Even when you think you’re happy, there’s a sliver of doubt hiding in the back of your mind, prepared to jump out at you any second. Positively. Uf, what is positve anyways?

  • Emaline commented on the post, downpour 8 years ago

    We stood in the downpour, waiting for the bus. I wasn’t sure where we would end up, but I just knew I had to leave. I just knew it. There is no way I could stay in this little town much longer.

    “We’ll have to scout the area,” he said. “But sir, we already checked everywhere. No one gone saw her.” “Keep looking. No one has been lost under my watch,” he replied, “and I’m not going to change that today”.

  • Emaline commented on the post, evidence 8 years, 1 month ago

    You don’t need evidence to know the truth. Sometimes you just know. This isn’t the most solid method, but you’ll know when you know. The evidence is just a little extra.

  • Emaline commented on the post, concern 8 years, 2 months ago

    She was worried about flooding, but to me the water was no concern. It’s just water, after all. If we were meant to drown, we will. Simple as that. Anyways, I sort of like the water. It’s calming to hear the tap, tap, tap, as the drops hit the window. These are the memories I […]

  • Emaline commented on the post, insect 8 years, 2 months ago

    I can’t write about this word… I just read Metamorphosis by Kafka. The protagonist, Gregor, wakes up one morning completely transformed into a bug. He’s trapped by his physical being, but also by his parasite-like parents who he has worked so hard to pay off their debt.

  • Emaline commented on the post, offer 8 years, 2 months ago

    “I’d love to go,” he said calmly, “if the offer sill stands.”
    “Of course, babe, you’re always welcome.” Although her words were sincere, her voice was very anxious.
    “I’m just worried about what the killer might think.”

  • Emaline commented on the post, sinking 8 years, 3 months ago

    And there it was, sinking– sinking slowly to the bottom, out of reach, out of sight. (use of a resumptive modifier, practice for ap lit)

  • Emaline commented on the post, missed 8 years, 3 months ago

    I guess I just missed how it used to be. Things are probably not going to be the same, and he’ll always be an ass to me. I miss the times when I was optimistic.

  • Emaline commented on the post, thread 8 years, 3 months ago

    Holding on by a thread, I do the best i can.

  • Emaline commented on the post, near 8 years, 3 months ago

    I’m not close to being alive. I’m not dead either. Not yet, at least. There must be a word for that space between life and the afterlife. Will I ever be alive again? I’m too much near death.

  • Emaline commented on the post, discovery 8 years, 3 months ago

    And what a discovery it was. Not only was he able to do the work he loved, he was becoming famous on his findings. And they said he couldn’t be an archeologist.

  • Emaline commented on the post, answers 8 years, 3 months ago

    Answers are something every kid needs. You’re expected to know all the right ones. Well I’m here, 6 days left, with more than half the answers needed. No one knows what the answer will be.

  • Emaline commented on the post, driving 8 years, 3 months ago

    Driving isn’t so bad. On a warm summer night, on country roads, I can really connect with myself again. The stereo is blasting and I’ve never felt more relaxed.
