• Lucie commented on the post, deserved 4 years, 11 months ago

    You deserved it. The beatings, the pain, the humiliation, the bullying, the loneliness. The cuts in your arms, then finally the one that slit your wrist. You were different, after all. You loved men where others loved women. You were, as your father said, a disgusting disgrace. Now you’re not anymore. Now you’re gone for good.

  • Lucie commented on the post, fresh 6 years, 9 months ago

    the smell of fresh blood, tasty, hot, young. i’ll eat it, i’ll drink it – mine.

    It’s maddening, the urge. Kill, feed, discard. I remember I used to be one of them. I used to be human.

  • Lucie commented on the post, half 6 years, 11 months ago

    I only have half a heart, half a soul, half a mind. The other half is owned by the other one; he whispers in the dark, tells me tales of blood and pain and breaking bones, innocent flesh bound in shackles to be […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, zone 6 years, 11 months ago

    The Third zone is the most dangerous. It’s not like here, in First, where people can shoot you on the street, where you can die of some infection that didn’t even exist two days ago. In Third, everything is clean. […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, instructions 6 years, 12 months ago

    following instructions has never been your strong point; you used to lie with your eyes wide open when you were supposed to nap after lunch in kindergarden, at school you never managed to sit still till the end of […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, configuration 7 years ago

    Something was wrong with the configuration of the program. That much was clear. Because he was sprouting additional limbs. Hair was growing in places where there shouldn’t have been any. Just what exactly had gone […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, splash 7 years, 3 months ago

    She was falling, falling, falling… There was no impact, though, nothing like the bone-shattering crash she had been expecting. There was a splash instead; in the brief moment before she blanked out, she wondered […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, sacrifice 7 years, 8 months ago

    It was a split second, a bolt of green light. He saw his life flash before his eyes. The Boy Who Lived was going to die – finally!, he thought. He has been waiting too long, ever since that decision he made at King’s Cross after talking with Dumbledore, the decision he HAD to make […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, comfort 7 years, 9 months ago

    I thought I’d never do it again, yet here I am, seeking comfort in another’s embrace, trusting enough to let down my guard for a blissful moment or two. There’s nothing sweeter… until they stab you in the back and then you’re dead. There’s no one one should trust on this godforsaken planet.

  • Lucie commented on the post, advice 7 years, 9 months ago

    The advice was to forget. How could I, when every cell in my body remembers you, the way your skin melted into mine, the way your breathing tickled my face, the way you moved against and inside me when we did what certainly was forbidden. We had been one too long, so now that they […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, brick 7 years, 11 months ago

    Like smashing your face in with a brick. Red blood – splash! That’s what it should feel like, getting broken inside. It doesn’t.
    More like erosion.

  • Lucie commented on the post, band 7 years, 11 months ago

    The band wraps around your wrist, a mere bracelet to most but so much more to you. It is a symbol, the worn leather reflecting the torment your soul had gone through, the crude knot as if to say “I won’t let go”. And when you take it off, it peels off like a cocoon […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, chorus 8 years, 2 months ago

    a chorus of cherubs
    is it my funeral or are they
    welcoming me to the world
    reborn?

  • Lucie commented on the post, trailer 8 years, 2 months ago

    I lived in a trailer and you didn’t have a job, we bought the cheap tea and didn’t splurge on ice cream. Now that we have everything, it feels like so much less.

  • Lucie commented on the post, styrofoam 8 years, 2 months ago

    We held the cups, warming our hands, cheap styrofoam things; they don’t do proper china in this country. The white puffs of your breath mingled with mine as we looked at each other and I wanted to inhale them; it was the only way you and I could still be together.

  • Lucie commented on the post, foreign 8 years, 3 months ago

    We are like foreign countries to each other, or countries separated in a revolution – you don’t speak my language and I don’t speak yours anymore, where there used to be alliance there now is tension, and I fear the looming war – broken promises, lost souls, charred dead lands.

  • Lucie commented on the post, robot 8 years, 3 months ago

    I have not seen you in a long time, my dear – 435 years, 298 days, 18 hours, 39 minutes and 4 seconds to be precise. I will continue waiting; the advantage and the curse of being an A.I., or a “robot” as humans used to call my species long ago, is that time doesn’t […]

  • Lucie commented on the post, chocolate 8 years, 5 months ago

    If my heart was made of chocolate, it would make sense, it would make sense that you should devour it like this, swallow it whole and not leave one bit for me, if my heart was made of chocolate, maybe you’d want to save it because it’s too good.

  • Lucie commented on the post, microphone 8 years, 5 months ago

    the sounds go in
    and out, so much louder
    screaming rage and spitting viciousness
    you are the microphone
    the amplifier
    for everything
    that hurts inside my heart

  • Lucie commented on the post, pills 8 years, 5 months ago

    You swallowed them like chocolate, which you also always ate too much of. Down they went, some to make you sleep, some to make you feel good, some just a random mix to cure illnesses you never had. The only illness that you had was not one to be cured by pills; you can never […]
