    You are either an original or a carbon copy. Most of the people I’ve come across are merely decoys of what they can’t be. These are the ones that pretend to be bold and powerful. These are the ones that have grown into their façade. These are the people I’m forced to walk beside; the ones I can’t stand.

    Oh, what a joyous relief to wake up in the morning and to find myself still alive.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, incomplete 6 years, 3 months ago

    Who would I be if it weren’t for you? I would be one of those people that just goes through life merely existing, leaving a trail of holes and incomplete stories. This is my thank you to you, because you may have been the one that hurt me most, but you were also the one that made me courageous.

    All I could see was her shoulder as she turned, and I immediately knew what it meant; she was finished, she was walking away from me. She didn’t even say goodbye.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, taboo 6 years, 5 months ago

    There are things we feel and people we see and before we can experience these people and these feelings we see them as taboo. We tell ourselves that it will never happen, but the inevitable always comes. We fall in love, we cry for no reason, we rejoice in our victories, and we die for a cause.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, loom 6 years, 5 months ago

    The moon looms over us like a small child examines a ladybug. I wonder what’s up there sometimes, but it simply isn’t a mystery at all; the moon is a really a rock following the Earth.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, burning 6 years, 5 months ago

    If I died today I wouldn’t want it to go unnoticed, but up in flames.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, wall 6 years, 8 months ago

    I stared closely into the bank wall. On that wall was a set of emerald eyes, a thick nose, and warm lips. I was scared of what would happen next; would he kiss me or walk away, like every encounter before this one?

    This was it. This was the moment that I would become a star. My heart fluttered as the curtains pulled back and the musical started. It’s show time.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, applied 6 years, 8 months ago

    I slowly applied what my mother had told me all those years; “Never trust anyone.”, she would say. Now, I finally realized I could never depend on anyone except myself, because no one knows me better than myself.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, placed 6 years, 9 months ago

    I placed myself in her shoes. Put myself in her place. Tried to see life through her eyes. Walked a mile in her skin. Yet, would she ever give me that common courtesy?

  • Magdalena commented on the post, barrel 6 years, 9 months ago

    My thought were rolling around in my head, almost as if they were in a barrel. I couldn’t stop thinking about whether I made the right choice or not.

  • Magdalena commented on the post, sure 6 years, 9 months ago

    I could not think in that sweet moment when his hand gingerly brushed my face.
