• Fiona commented on the post, itchy 1 year ago

    I was itchy. Everywhere. And they had told me it might be a side effect of the chemical imbalance inside my brain but it didn’t make it any less real for me. I couldn’t stop scratching and everyone couldn’t stop staring. I knew it wasn’t what it seemed like, yet my mind told me it had to be true.

  • Fiona commented on the post, wintertime 4 years, 9 months ago

    The cold sent a chill through both of us and I clutched onto James’ arm, hanging from it like a little kid. He glanced down at me and smiled. Wintertime was my favorite. The snow, cold, all the lights, and everyone just seemed so friendly.

  • Fiona commented on the post, tribal 4 years, 9 months ago

    I lay on the beach, the warm air enclosing me. I heard their tribal calls in the distance, I don’t know what had gotten into them. two weeks stranded on this island and they were all pigs, every last one of them

  • Fiona commented on the post, sitcom 5 years, 1 month ago

    She sat there laughing at herself, that’s all she could do really. Was this literally her life? It seemed like more of a sitcom made for bored teenagers who weren’t planning on doing much with their lives.

  • Fiona commented on the post, withhold 5 years, 5 months ago

    Witholding from everyone else is a struggle. But it’s the safest way to assure that I won’t get hurt again. And I can’t trust anybody after what happened last time.

  • Fiona commented on the post, single 5 years, 5 months ago

    Single. That word is just a blow to the heart. It reminds me me of just how a pathetic person I am. Single forever and always, that was my motto. And I was still waiting for my knight in shining armor when

  • Fiona commented on the post, church 5 years, 5 months ago

    I saw her every week at church. Always kept her head down, hands tucked into her pockets. I would see her lips move ever so slightly, mouthing the words to the hymns. And after communion, she would always be the first one out. I’d many times tried to follow her, but as soon as I walked out, she was always gone

  • Fiona commented on the post, occupancy 5 years, 6 months ago

    the occupancy sign said that they were empty. He pulled into the lot, gripping my hand tightly. When we pulled into the parking space he glanced at me and smiled nervously. “I love you..you know that right?”

  • Fiona commented on the post, pruned 5 years, 7 months ago

    My fingers were pruned from sitting in the shower for so long. I wasn’t ready to get out yet but my brothers had been pounding on the door for a solid ten minutes. I wasn’t ready to face the world though, I needed a few more minutes in my sanctuary

  • Fiona commented on the post, derby 5 years, 7 months ago

    the home run derby was always the best part of their practice. I sat in my normal spot under the tree while all the guys lined up for their turn. I watched not one of them hit it over. Practice ended and I went onto the field. Tossing the ball up and swinging the bat, the ball soared over the fence, hooooome run. Why wouldn’t they give me a chance to play

  • Fiona commented on the post, struggle 5 years, 7 months ago

    The struggle to see the top was immense. The fog was covering the mountain top, but our guide had said it wwas only a couple miles away. We had to be close. At the top we could somehow call for help. There had to be some kind of radio tower up there. Something, anything, that could save us

  • Fiona commented on the post, unplanned 5 years, 7 months ago

    the announcement was unplanned for the ceremony. He wasn’t supposed to get up and talk, he had opted out of it. He claimed he hated public speaking. But he got up. Walked straight to the microphone and said “I hate all of you.” and that’s when the chaos began

  • Fiona commented on the post, harm 5 years, 8 months ago

    The most important thing for me was that he stayed out of harms way. I was a loose cannon. Who knew what I would do from day today. I could be happy one second and have disappeared the next. He loved me and I loved him. But I had to protect him from the inconsistency of me, and, before I knew it, he had forgotten about whatever it was we had and I…[Read more]

  • Fiona commented on the post, sill 5 years, 8 months ago

    She gazed out the window, her arm resting on the window sill, eyes glazed over, staring at the passing fields. she’d actually done it. Actually ran away. Now she was on a train to who knows where, and the anxiety was finally getting to her.

  • Fiona commented on the post, crossfire 5 years, 8 months ago

    There was crossfire in the field, I bent down so I wouldn’t be hit, cradling Abbey into me. How did we end up here, with all this happening around us, what did we do to get in this place

  • Fiona commented on the post, gentlemen 5 years, 8 months ago

    He was a gentlemen. Unlike all the other shitheads in my grade. but he’s also gorgeous. Nice, kind, funny, smart. And hot. Boy, was he hot. But, of course, he would never be mine

    Leveled. Kind of don’t know what this means. So..

  • Fiona commented on the post, coma 5 years, 9 months ago

    I stood there staring at her. I was frozen. My arm held tightly against my chest is a sling. My head pounding from the raging head ache. How did she end up in the coma. I would have traded places with her in an instant, she was my everything

  • Fiona commented on the post, bluegrass 6 years ago

    The music was eerie, a hint of bluegrass. It was weird. She’d never heard music like it before. Her family was conservative, never let her watch tv, listen to music, chat on the phone with friends. This bluegrass music was something new to her. And it was right outside of her house.

  • Fiona commented on the post, willful 6 years, 2 months ago

    Full of will. That’s willful right? I’m not willful, never been close, I would rather sit down and watch everyone suffer and fail or succeed and prosper. I don’t have the urge to get things done. Maybe because you’ve always told me I couldn’t.
