• Franchesca commented on the post, never 4 years, 8 months ago

    As you smile up at me on bended knee, I feel the tears caress my cheeks as though to comfort me after I wake up and realize that this is only a dream and this will never be me.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, interest 6 years, 7 months ago

    He catches my eye, catches my interest, as he portrays on stage a man of grandeur. He speaks of hardships he has never experienced, lives he has never fought for, and love he has not experienced. This is why the actor will always catch my interest.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, methods 6 years, 10 months ago

    I have no methods when it comes to writing. I write as I think and sometimes I think it’s amazing. Other times it comes out as shit. Maybe that is my method though; close your eyes and hope you hit the mark.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, doorknob 6 years, 11 months ago

    The doorknob was cold. No, cold is the wrong word. It was freezing. The golden oval that shined too bright against the sunshine flooding in from the window. A startling contrast compared to the heat radiating from […]

    The turbine blasts a blue-white flame and I’m close enough to see the heat alter its surroundings.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, pits 7 years ago

    I could feel the sweat pooling in my pits. I know that’s not a very graceful way to describe stepping up onto that stage but being in those heels and that stupid black dress made me sweat. I felt like I was lying. […]

  • Franchesca commented on the post, pour 7 years ago

    I poured my heart out. She still rejected me. I’m not good enough. I was never a good enough person. It just took my heart laying still before her for her to finally decide to take mercy on me.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, orbit 7 years, 4 months ago

    You used to orbit around me like the planets to the sun. I was your sun. Now I’m abandoned. There are no more majestic worlds surrounding me with rich beauty. Now it’s just me. Alone in a dark empty space, […]

  • Franchesca commented on the post, below 7 years, 5 months ago

    Below the depths of my shallow mind, I know my beautiful words there lies.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, sneaky 7 years, 6 months ago

    You sneaky little child. You know the types, those that hide underneath the table because they don’t want to go home or the kids that jump out from behind the doors to scare their younger siblings. It’s funny now that I think about it, because those are the things I do. So I guess this […]

  • The centerpiece of my life has always been tragedy. It’s this big fruit bowl filled with insecurities dressed in black welts, lies covered in oozing disappointment, and hopes buried underneath the rubble. I eat dinner every night in front of this horror, shoving what my supporters say of me down my throat. But the more […]

  • Franchesca commented on the post, anywhere 7 years, 6 months ago

    I don’t want to be anywhere but here, here in my warm bed on a chilly morning knowing that I could sleep in. Here where I can stare up at your face from your arms and know you aren’t going anywhere but the bathroom. Here where there’s no whirring of a computer fan, no ringing […]

  • Franchesca commented on the post, solitaire 7 years, 7 months ago

    I never learned how to play solitaire. It kind of makes me depressed when I’m alone. Because I have this deck of cards and no one to play with. And since I don’t know solitaire, I sit there and contemplate how aloneness feels and how words can never accurately describe it and how everything always […]

  • Franchesca commented on the post, abstract 7 years, 7 months ago

    A dream within a dream is not so much an abstract thought for someone like me. I get them once in a fortnight, this malignant message from my subconscious, trying to tell me something I don’t want to acknowledge myself though something I know, I know.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, epiphany 7 years, 7 months ago

    I need an epiphany to understand why I have a missing piece. It’s not missing like an “I miss you”, but rather a puzzle piece. And yes that metaphor has been done a thousand times, but it means so much more when it feels like it’s about to ruin your life.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, still 7 years, 8 months ago

    Still, I am awake. Still in love. Still not over you, no, not really. I’m still waiting. I’m still depressed. I’m still hiding. I’m still undressed. I’m still wondering if I’ll ever be good enough. I still wonder “why?”. I still wish I was smarter. Still uncomfortable with life. And I’m still wanting to be […]

  • Franchesca commented on the post, artistry 7 years, 8 months ago

    The artistry of crafting these history outlines go unnoticed by adults and unappreciated by our fellow peers. I would like to send off an announcement to fellow overachievers and share that we are not alone in our marathon to excel, succeed, and impress.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, stacks 7 years, 8 months ago

    Stacks and stacks of late bills and unimportant junk mail. Things I hate to look through. Things that remind me of how long it’s been since I had a reason to be organized. The death of a loved one ended my life, why not my endless stacks and stacks of mail?

  • Franchesca commented on the post, warned 7 years, 8 months ago

    He warned me he would love me and never let me go, a warning gone unfollowed and I trusted my heart. Little did I know that he would be the one to tear me apart. Maybe another time.

  • Franchesca commented on the post, suppose 7 years, 8 months ago

    I suppose that you love me and that you truly care but sometimes supposing just doesn’t get me there.
