    Stunted growth. Not physically. The mind. The mind is stunted by teachers and doctors, professionals, the ones whop say they know what they’re doing. Stand up, be free. Let your mind grow.

    I was staring at the mummies. They always fascinated me. The one thing we know isn’t permanent is our body, and yet, it can be. I guess that’s as close as humans ever get to living forever.

  • Laura commented on the post, president 7 years, 3 months ago

    I was president over them all. They worshiped me, and everything I said. Except for him. He hated me, out of jealousy. He wanted to bring me down. Well, he managed it. And now I’m no better than them, am I? I hate this.

  • Laura commented on the post, horses 7 years, 3 months ago

    She ran free, like the wild horses I sometimes saw on the moors. She was care free, happy. A loose cannon. I loved her and hated her, because I wanted to be her. They found her this morning, hanging from a rope in her bedroom.

  • Laura commented on the post, stunning 7 years, 3 months ago

    Stunning. She was. I’m not. How do I compare? Why me? I don’t understand. I can’t help but wonder why the hell he’s with me when he could have that. I’m nothing. I’m inadequate. I’l always believe that.

    The room at the top of the house where daddy spent all his time. We aren’t allowed in there now. It makes mummy cry. I can’t remember what it looks like anymore.

  • Laura commented on the post, rules 7 years, 3 months ago

    If you don’t follow them, you’re out. That’s what they tell you. Out where? You don’t know. All you’ve ever known is this. This place: white walls and cameras: this is the world. So you don’t break the rules. You’re scared of what you do not know.

  • Laura commented on the post, flare 7 years, 3 months ago

    flare. Romance, a spark. Passion. Hate, It all starts with the initial flare, and it’s up to you what you do with it. Let it burn, blow it gently until it’s a fire, or douse it with water so it goes out? It’s your choice.

  • Laura commented on the post, hearts 7 years, 3 months ago

    hearts are so very fragile, and it doesn’t take a lover to break one. Hearts can be broken at any age, by any one. I even think you can break your own heart. That’s why I try so damned hard to keep mine protected, but every time I slip and let it out, it causes […]

  • Laura commented on the post, left 7 years, 3 months ago

    I’m going. You don’t even know it, I don’t think. Or if you do, you’re running from it. Hiding. But that’s pushing me away. This is your last chance. I mean it, I’m gone soon. And what will I have left behind? A wannabe alcohol who ignores the ones he loves because he can’t deal […]

  • Laura commented on the post, icicle 7 years, 3 months ago

    It was bitterly cold as Mary stepped out of the house. She didn’t even turn to look back. If she’d had a choice, she wouldn’t have gone in Winter. She would have waited til she had money at least. But things had got so bad. She had to get out. And she’d never go back.

  • Laura commented on the post, autumn 7 years, 3 months ago

    autumn. That’s when he left. We’ve been searching ever since. Well, I have. All those Autumns. They keep telling me he’s never coming back. But I don’t believe them. We were meant to be, that’s what he told me. I’ll never stop searching. Never. I can’t bring myself to give up.

  • Laura commented on the post, tires 7 years, 3 months ago

    Tires. Cars. Trains. Never in one place. That’s how it’s always been. Never getting attached. never allowing myself to. It worked, it was happy. I was happy. And then you came in to my life and you didn’t complete me and you aren’t my other half but you are the chink that broke my damn.

  • Laura commented on the post, downpour 7 years, 3 months ago

    the downpour that night was astounding. Mary hoped John would come home soon. It was unsafe for him to be out on a night like that, in that tiny boat, tossing and turning. She stood at the window, looking out to sea. The candle beside her fluttered and went out.

  • Laura commented on the post, combination 7 years, 3 months ago

    a combination of factors made him do it. Love – or lack of it. Stress. Depression. Inability to find meaning in life. Many other things contributed. That’s why he was on the bridge that day. That’s why he jumped.

  • Laura commented on the post, husband 7 years, 3 months ago

    i’m never marrying. Ever. Marrying is for women with no lives or aspirations. Women who don’t even think. Not women like me. Women with dreams and hopes and lives of their own. Their own mortgage and car. Then he came. He changed everything, didn’t he? Now it’s his mortgage.

  • Laura commented on the post, sacrifice 7 years, 3 months ago

    i’ve made many sacrifices in my life. many. for everyone, even for you. i’ve sacrificed nights out so i can talk to you. you wouldn’t do the same for me, i know. you never would. but you’ve never been in this situation, and you’re not me, are you? You do things differently. that’s the thing […]

  • Laura commented on the post, riots 7 years, 3 months ago

    riots have happened a lot recently, some say they’re pointless and reckless but personally, I believe riots are necessary for the country. Riots mean that people have their voices heard, which they don’t get any other way. People are not heard.

  • Laura commented on the post, morality 7 years, 4 months ago

    this is when you know what’s right and wrong. When you’re own sense of the world gets in the way of you doing things. When there’s something you want to do, but the world would judge you for it, that judgement is morality.
