• Nothing keeps my interest long, it’s all shiny and new in the beginning but sure enough it melts away, and like smoke under my fingernails, wisps itself out like a candle in a quiet shove of wind

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, treaty 7 years ago

    There was a nervous air around the table as the various diplomats shifted their bottoms in their seats and their eyes at their fellow foreign table mates, all there to discuss the same problem. The Geneva […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, cap 7 years ago

    There was a jade cap over the filmy net, and as the fish gasped and flopped about on the floor of the boat, I walked myself around and around the circumference of the entrapment, feeling enormous and strange

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, necessity 7 years ago

    It was a necessity to chop the old oak tree down, the sheriff had told me. I remember a time when I would have begged for him to leave it alone, but when he told me this now, I only nodded and smiled, exchanged […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, pins 7 years, 2 months ago

    There were pins sticking out of her head. Slowly, gingerly, she removed them, plucking them out as if she were plucking out hair. The tubes in her arms could be left for later. Same for the heavy weights attached […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, splash 7 years, 2 months ago

    Such a deafening silence, I’m surprised that my powers can even make a splash in the pond of the large ocean that is her ear; ripple towards her brain, making resonance with the sweet sound of her ear and her […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, trunk 7 years, 3 months ago

    The trunk was heavy and glossy, and the wood had that malleable quality where when Susanna stuck her nails ever so softly into the varnish, a little bit of the gunk came up and stuck itself right back into her. It […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, fixed 7 years, 3 months ago

    I was gently holding my broken toy, cradling it’s head that was limply lying a few inches below it’s shoulders, as if it had been knocked backwards by a strong gust of wind and simply didn’t have the strength at […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, ratings 7 years, 3 months ago

    The films ratings were insane. One critic would give it 5 shiny gold stars out of 5, when another one would be berating it and declaring it as the worst film of all time. There was simply no in between, and as I […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, pageant 7 years, 3 months ago

    The beauty pageant had the girls arranged in such a way that it reminded Charlie of a confectionary; the rainbows of their dresses and thick scent of their hairspray which wafted through the air and successfully […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, torch 7 years, 3 months ago

    I lit up the torch and sat on the cliff, gazing over the waterbed. I was angry and starving, my stomach a cave, turning into itself, and churning itself out over the rocky slopes and down towards the rapids, where […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, pastel 7 years, 3 months ago

    There were pastels in the river. Her mother had emptied them out into the river when she caught her drawing with them. Her father had not stopped her. And now, all of the beautiful colours ran together. She could […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, pattern 7 years, 3 months ago

    The pattern on the skyline was rusty and opalescent, and her hands shook as she traced the outlines of the clouds with her index finger, looking for the smoke rings and the trail of space between suspended water […]

  • There was a small spot underneath the sun and she sat there during her stay. She never moved once. Only did her eyelashes sometimes tremble with the breeze, much like how a butterfly would alight upon a flower, […]

  • Joe hated petitions. He had gone door to door for the past three hours, getting people to sign this stupid petition for this girlfriend’s cause. Something about polar bears or trees, he wasn’t sure. At any rate, […]

  • Maryannerose commented on the post, recycle 7 years, 3 months ago

    She felt a little used, a little tired. The human, recycled. Upcycled, renewable, neverending resource- that was her. She didn’t know it now, but she was causing more harm than good.
