• mariana commented on the post, separate 7 years, 5 months ago

    I feel like there is an entire separate side of me that I long to show to someone. Don’t get me wrong. I’m myself around others & sometimes I’m comfortable, sometimes that’s enough, but usually it’s not. Usually […]

  • mariana commented on the post, entrée 7 years, 5 months ago

    Entree. Entree. Entree. I have such a horrible relationship with food right now, I can’t even write about this specific word. I just like that it’s French. French is such a beautiful language. France is such a […]

  • mariana commented on the post, sound 7 years, 5 months ago

    I’ve been listening to the sound of these old records & there’s nothing quite as sweet, nothing quite as real, nothing quite as raw, nothing quite as warm. It’s the most romantic thing to gently place a needle on […]

    Slight of hand. Slightly timid. Slightly cocky. Slightly looking. Slightly gazing. Slightly hoping you were real. Clearly seeing you were.

  • mariana commented on the post, pins 7 years, 6 months ago

    Pins & needles, and all these things that are holding me together & keeping me from tearing apart, from ripping out of my skin as something that no longer belongs in a body. Something that no longer belongs […]

  • mariana commented on the post, catcher 7 years, 6 months ago

    I’ll surely be surprised if most of the submitted entries have nothing to do with ‘Catcher In The Rye’. J.D. Salinger was a genius & I feel that if the book is interpreted positively it can actually change […]

  • mariana commented on the post, staple 7 years, 7 months ago

    I remember looking down at my core, feeling my skin, looking at my body like something completely extraneous to my being. I couldn’t understand. All I saw was a staple, followed by a staple, followed by a staple […]

  • mariana commented on the post, dismissed 7 years, 7 months ago

    There are a lot things that people dismiss that they probably shouldn’t. Their dreams, for example, how beautiful silence can be, the opinions of children, the feeling that someone is standing right behind them. […]

  • mariana commented on the post, town 7 years, 7 months ago

    Town. Town. Town. I hate this town. I hate this town because it’s core is hollow. There is no life at the center. There’s life around it but nothing really in the center. Maybe the way I feel about this town is a […]

  • mariana commented on the post, weave 7 years, 7 months ago

    I instantly thought of a hair weave, but that’s not necessarily my fault is it? I thought of it as a noun before a verb which is somewhat of a human condition to have some sort of preference over nouns that verbs. […]

  • mariana commented on the post, crew 7 years, 7 months ago

    I don’t like this word. There’s something about the way the e is lost within the rest of the consonants & it makes me uneasy. I do not like the word ‘crew’. So I guess that’s something I have.

  • mariana commented on the post, lift 7 years, 7 months ago

    I guess lift could mean a lot of things. It could mean elevator in British slang, but in all honesty I want to think of it as a spiritual lift. A sort of pick- me- up from the ground. RISE FROM THE ASHES & PREVAIL […]

  • mariana commented on the post, digital 8 years, 6 months ago

    We live in a digital world. A digital era. We can’t escape it. We are it. People have turned into pixles & pixles have turned both tangible & sentient. Everything about us is digital. We are composed of veins as wires, our souls as memory cards, our hearts as hard drives. We turned lifeless. We […]
