• Mollie commented on the post, tank 6 years ago

    His words charged at me so quickly that I couldn’t dodge them. And I didn’t want to dodge them. Because each missile gave me a short sensation that I was alive, that I could feel with my skin and I could breathe with my lungs; hot tremors of morality hitting me all at once. He always came at me like a tank. He always came at me in armor.

    I feel this
    This animosity
    But I can’t see it
    Not passed you
    and your seersucker tie

    and it’s like you’re so cool
    and i’m so unlike myself
    that I can’t pull myself together
    in a knot like the seersucker tie.

  • Mollie commented on the post, cook 6 years, 10 months ago

    I told him he couldn’t cook and he looked at me with a vicious stare.
    “I can make scrambled eggs.”
    “Yes,” I said to him, peering down at the poorly animated yellow matter on my plate. “But I asked for them to be sunny-side up.”
    He scoffed and turned abruptly to his still-sizzliing frying pan.
    “Third times a charm,” He sighed.
    It was a…[Read more]

  • Mollie commented on the post, himself 6 years, 10 months ago

    He stood across the room and brushed the wrinkles out of his plaid shirt, looking up at me with a smile that only I could find consuming. I was so absolutely drawn into the light that gleamed in his gold iruses that I almost forgot I had just speant the last ten minutes squawking incessantly about his dirty habits in relation to my clean ones.
    He…[Read more]

  • Mollie commented on the post, possible 7 years ago

    anything is possible
    until you walk into
    the room and i suddenly
    see that awful piece
    of lint on your suit that
    drives me insane, so I
    pick it off innocently,
    but what seemed innocent
    in my mind has […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, walls 7 years ago

    The walls were closing in, but I had plenty of ways to escape. Too many. Like hoardes upon hoards of just endless capillaries, hallways, rooms, all begging me with anxious fingers to choose.
    I’ve never been down […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, begin 7 years ago

    I want to start over. Many days I awake with a bitter resentment; a rather nostalgic feeling of memories I’ve never sowed, or even imagined. When did I become such a wreck? I ask to begin again, but a hand holds […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, despite 7 years, 1 month ago

    I can’t even see in the dark. Things aren’t as they seem, either. He lights up my life like a firework, despite his rather drab appearance. And I can tell that he is less than popular, his ratty jeans never did […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, alive 7 years, 1 month ago

    The baggy blue jeans sag off of my fatigued legs, begging for a direction to swirl in the breeze. I need to clean, but here I am, procrastinating with potatoes and dripping with sweat. Today is like any other day, […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, fried 7 years, 1 month ago

    I lingered into the kitchen, sticky with sweat from a late summer solstice. I leaned on the cold tiles of the island stove, my biceps erupting with goosebumps. Fried green tomatoes. A taste of home, holiday; a […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, asthma 7 years, 1 month ago

    Pulsating lungs; swimming through vast oceans and seas for just one fingerprint upon my collarbone, your fingerprint, sizzles like an iron on my epidermis. Your touch is absent minded, and i feel it each day i […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, dysfunctional 7 years, 1 month ago

    He left me in daze, no lefts, rights, ups or downs. Just diagonals. I hated diagonals. Geometry taught me close to nothing. His enormous blue eyes sparkled in a way that both amazed me and annoyed me. How could he […]

  • Mollie commented on the post, stillness 7 years, 1 month ago

    The tension in the room was terrifying. My mother, laying gravely on the white bedding, and I, sitting too nervously on an uncomfortable chair, being taken away slowly by the monotonous beeps on the LCD. Only a […]
