• Mady commented on the post, existence 8 years ago

    She smiled in the face of the wind.

    Her hair blew, and she was happy.

    The young girl breathed, arms open and dress billowing about her legs. She hadn’t known that it would be this wonderful. This… this life. Existence.

    She had dreamed of it for millennia, but only now it had come to her.

  • Mady commented on the post, succeed 8 years, 1 month ago

    I don’t know whether I have succeeded or not.
    I told her. I told her everything. Flushed. Flushed right down to the pit of my soul.
    All of my feelings, I told her.

    I can’t feel my heart beating. I’m holding my breath. I still don’t know.

    I still don’t know.

    I still don’t know…

  • Mady commented on the post, thread 8 years, 1 month ago

    It lay across my lap, but I did not move it. It had not been touched in a number of years. I had never decided to begin to weave my tale. The pages were open, but they were empty. I had not written a word, not spun the thread. I needed to start again. The […]

  • Mady commented on the post, determined 8 years, 5 months ago

    Determination. It’s something I’m pretty sure I don’t have. I’m not determined. I just don’t care. I don’t want her anymore. She’s not worth it. She’s just not. I’m not determined to have her hand held in mine… to have her blue eyes look lovingly only to me. Nope. I’m not. I don’t care. Determination […]

  • Mady commented on the post, strength 8 years, 5 months ago

    I am woman. I am strong. I can do all that the man can do. The man that tossed me into the trash. The man that took me for granted and threw me to the curb. I have as much strength as he. I have more. He cannot hurt me. I am woman. I am […]

  • Mady commented on the post, plans 8 years, 5 months ago

    She said no. I had all of these plans… All of them. But she said no. I did it like it was supposed to be done. I got down on one knee. I pulled it out. The ring… it was so gorgeous. And she still said no. No. No. All of my plans. I repeat […]

  • Mady commented on the post, shape 8 years, 6 months ago

    Curves. That’s all it was. Curves. I loved curves. The way she moved around, it was as if the ocean tides were pulling back and forth, back and forth at her. She was not controlling this body. A body given by a god. No, the earth was controlling it. She let go. It was the […]

  • Mady commented on the post, microphone 8 years, 7 months ago

    Perhaps it was the way that she held it. Or maybe it was the way the light hit her face every time she moved. I didn’t know, but she was beautiful. She was beautiful beyond belief. And that microphone… when she held it to her lips, it was like hell would freeze over. Everything else […]

  • Mady commented on the post, indistinct 9 years ago

    I wasn’t there. I mean, I was, but I didn’t feel like I was. I wasn’t important. I didn’t feel important. They walked by me, just walked by me. They’re eyes were focused on one another’s, glittering, giggly eyes. I just downcast my own, sad, dull eyes. Looked at me shoes. I was indistinct and […]

  • Mady commented on the post, moon 9 years ago

    I looked up and saw nothing but the glowing outline of the moon. It was a new moon that night, but I could still see where the moon was. It’s outline was beautiful. I turned my head, reaching my hand out for something that wasn’t there. The one that I loved, with all of my […]

  • Mady commented on the post, eternally 9 years, 1 month ago

    Forever and ever. Eternally we are bonded. That’s what I told you, laced up in white, and you, opposite me in black. It was a lie, though. Eternity is a lie. I can’t do it anymore. My life isn’t anything anymore. It’s an empty shell. I have to leave. I pick up the suitcase by […]

  • Mady commented on the post, delight 9 years, 1 month ago

    I looked at it and smiled. I couldn’t believe it was finally here. I was overjoyed. Delighted. Just ecstatic that it was finally here. The 64 pack of crayons that I had been hoping for since I was little. It came with a sharpener and everything. I love crayons. And there are so many colors. […]

  • Mady commented on the post, sponge 9 years, 1 month ago

    I am a sponge. I am young, moldable, pliable, and I will soak up everything that is told to me. Mathematics: I remember. Sciences, I also remember. English, Social Studies. But I also remember the other things. The insults, the horrible things said to me and those around me. The physical and emotional bruises, cuts, […]

  • Mady commented on the post, flashback 9 years, 1 month ago

    I looked in the mirror, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. His hands on my face… his hands in my hair, on my cheeks, holding me, grasping me. I couldn’t stop thinking. The flashback… it wouldn’t leave me alone. I never wanted to think about this again. But it was only a flash. And […]

  • Mady commented on the post, chaos 9 years, 2 months ago

    It was chaos. All of it. I looked around me, and could see nothing but leveled buildings for miles around. You know how the flat land levels off, and curves after 5 miles and you can’t see it anymore? That was happening. In the city I used to love. What happened? I didn’t know. I […]

  • Mady commented on the post, salute 9 years, 2 months ago

    He looked at me as he passed. I was thankful for the hand that covered the right corner of my eyebrow. It granted me the right to see in the beating sun. He looked at me, and I saw the corners of his mouth move. Like… a smile. A smile. I stood straighter, and I […]

  • Mady commented on the post, trend 9 years, 2 months ago

    I didn’t know what was happening. It wasn’t my fault, was it? No. They looked at me with such disgust. I wasn’t anything different. I was their child. But no, I didn’t have the blonde hair, the blue eyes that they wanted. Nothing. No fixation, no cleanliness, no perfect genes. Nothing. And I didn’t get […]
