• Mandy commented on the post, spent 7 years ago

    It was all gone. He looked down at his grubby hands, grime stuck in the cracks of his palm. His money was spent. He looked down at his tattered tunic and his bare feet coated in dirt. His clothing were spent. Falling to his knees, he wept. His soul was spent.

    She was a tough one, that’s for sure. Dealing with stupid high schoolers daily is an amazing feat. How does she do it? Then again, she did put me in detention.

  • Mandy commented on the post, cabinet 7 years, 4 months ago

    How many things can fit into that limited space?
    Sure, it may be big, but it’s not endless; stuff too many things into that cabinet and one day it’ll burst.

  • Mandy commented on the post, detention 7 years, 5 months ago

    I’ve never received one in school.
    Not really.
    But the act of being detained is one not unfamiliar.

  • Mandy commented on the post, harness 7 years, 5 months ago

    Strap on a harness, we’re going places.
    Who knows if we’ll ever return, but we’re off.
    Past mountains and over seas, we’re off.
    So strap on your harness, we’re going places.

  • Mandy commented on the post, motion 7 years, 5 months ago

    I’m not who I was. Each footstep takes me farther and deeper into an trench I’ve dug for myself. There is no end, no beginning or finite point in time. You can only move forward.

  • Mandy commented on the post, distributor 7 years, 5 months ago

    The heart–no, the soul, or whatever it may be–is the distributor of our drive; it ignites the functions of our physical body. From there, a life and history is molded and made possible; raw metal heated and […]

  • Mandy commented on the post, treaty 7 years, 6 months ago

    The hand stayed outstretched, but the grin wavered. The other party glanced down at the offered limb, a symbol of peace, and shrugged. The two shook hands firmly and the others around them seemed to exhale the […]

  • Mandy commented on the post, cap 7 years, 6 months ago

    She adjusted the cap roughly and spat on the floor in one smooth motion. Her hair tied back, and eyes narrowed, she grasped the bat and positioned it on her opposite shoulder.

  • Mandy commented on the post, necessity 7 years, 6 months ago

    Cognitive thinking is a necessity. It’s certainly one of mine. I mean, without it, where would I be? Not here, thatls where.

  • Mandy commented on the post, hassle 7 years, 6 months ago

    With hurried breathes, she grabbed at her bags and hoisted them onto her shoulder. As she put one up, another fell. What a hassle!

  • Mandy commented on the post, insect 7 years, 6 months ago

    The cockroach scuttled past the feet of shrieking girls. In a few seconds the giggling group of teenagers became a jumble of mass chaos as they jumped atop the benches in the locker. I rolled my eyes and continued […]

  • Mandy commented on the post, disregard 7 years, 6 months ago

    Everything else is disregarded. There is only you. Nothing else matters, but you. I say this in the most upright truth because the world is only how you perceive it. For all we know, there is only you and no one else.

    lending
    an art
    that is not learned
    but rather
    an ability
    you are born with

  • Mandy commented on the post, instrumental 7 years, 7 months ago

    Without a voice
    without a sound
    empty echoes reverberated
    rich sound emancipated
    the chorus goes round

  • Mandy commented on the post, earring 7 years, 7 months ago

    I don’t have any earrings. Perhaps it is a sign of my own sense of individuality that I would constantly deny. I don’t plan to get one.

  • Mandy commented on the post, willful 7 years, 8 months ago

    Is every action we take completely willful? Certainly, it is not comprised of only one’s consious judgement, for there is probably more than that. But, there is one thing that is fact: It is all in your head, […]

  • Mandy commented on the post, blaze 7 years, 8 months ago

    The mind was burning. It was consumed by the tiniest pushes of the thoughts around it.

    “Help!” It screamed, but no one was there to listen, as there never was. It lived, day by day, without water to sooth its […]

  • Mandy commented on the post, catcher 7 years, 8 months ago

    I like to think I’m a person with an open mind. Ready to catch and absorb falling particles of knowledge here and there. Sometimes I have to run to get the little sparkling bits and other times I find myself […]
