    They both sat back and sighed. It had been a wonderful day but this was quickly becoming the best part. The heat seeped through her cup and her hands felt like they were thawing despite the nip in the air. His mind settled a bit as he watched her relax and smile. The car smelled like a familiar mix of their two scents and the car heater was…[Read more]

  • Samira commented on the post, diabetes 3 years, 1 month ago

    have you ever seen the commercial where that man with the mustache who used to be famous says “dia-beat-us”? my friend Joey and I saw it years ago and he used to say it in that same way at random times to make me laugh. it got funnier each time because inside jokes can be like that and anytime I hear the word I remember him fondly. My Dear Little…[Read more]

    he looked like an ancient deity, standing above her offering his hand. she wondered if he realized how others saw him. thinking of his self-conscious grin she figured he must not. for another surprised moment she was pulled outside of herself to realize that she was not the only one who underestimated themselves.

  • Samira commented on the post, legendary 3 years, 2 months ago

    the look on his face was calm but his accomplishment was legendary. it would change the world. in her mind she saw it laid out before her; the tidal wave on the other side of the earth, washing over the corrupt elite in that city covered in filth. and it was no small sacrifice he had made. and yet. and yet his face looked bland and gave away…[Read more]

  • Samira commented on the post, stillness 6 years, 11 months ago

    the stillness that brings the closest thing to absolute silence I’ve ever heard…
    that’s the stillness I was striving for in that moment.
    I wanted to feel that silence once again.
    I wanted to feel a stillness […]

    please be my salvation
    salvation from what?
    from me mostly.
    I am my biggest disappointment, my biggest hurdle…
    I have to overcome Me all by myself but that doesn’t mean you can’t help…
    just take my hand […]

  • Samira commented on the post, hinge 7 years, 7 months ago

    the hinges squeaked as I slowly opened the door, afraid to see what was inside. I don’t know what I expected to see that scared me so, but my imagination must have been in overdrive because my heart was beating like the drums in a hard rock song.

  • Samira commented on the post, below 7 years, 7 months ago

    below the starry sky
    below the bright moon
    below the few, scattered, puffy clouds
    we lay below, in a moment of complete peace
    watching and wondering at the world around us
    contemplating what is up above

  • Samira commented on the post, bench 7 years, 7 months ago

    the plain, brown bench. there is nothing remarkable about it, unless you know the stories it has played a part of. the wedding proposal to start two lives on the path to becoming one; the brother and sister who will always remember it as the place they played with their mom while waiting for the […]

  • Samira commented on the post, crisp 7 years, 7 months ago

    the crisp air blows at the leaves, teasing them, twirling them, pushing them into a dance of brown, red, orange, yellow, and just a hint of green. the beautiful waltz spins around and then skitters down the street, outrunning me as I try to catch up.

  • Samira commented on the post, conceal 7 years, 7 months ago

    you try to conceal your smile from me your giggles back up behind a straight face that still tips up at the corners despite how hard you try to hold your muscles in place your eyes shine so brightly as they avoid mine and finally you burst into the most beautiful sound I have ever […]

  • Samira commented on the post, sparkling 7 years, 7 months ago

    I wasn’t sure what you were thinking
    I was so nervous that you were upset
    and then I saw your eyes sparkling
    one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my life is the sparkle in your eyes telling me you’re happy

  • Samira commented on the post, obey 7 years, 8 months ago

    obey they say they tell me over and over of the importance of doing what they tell me they know best but they only tell me what they want me to hear how can I trust them when I only get part of the truth? they are in the position of power they hold all […]

    skyline
    a whole city painted in blueish black against the horizon
    twinkling lights in between the dark outlines
    little squares representing all the people

  • Samira commented on the post, marble 7 years, 9 months ago

    the marble rolled
    it didn’t know its direction but the rolling felt amazing
    it was going places
    and so very fast!
    it bounced against a wall but it was not hurt
    it changed directions
    oh what fun it was having!
    where to next?

  • Samira commented on the post, museum 7 years, 9 months ago

    it felt like a museum
    no, like a tomb
    it felt more than still; it felt dead
    and deadly
    something inside of me said, “LEAVE”
    but my feet wouldn’t listen
    they were stubbornly held in place by my curiosity

  • Samira commented on the post, president 7 years, 9 months ago

    corruption corruption corruption
    greed for money and worse, for power
    want want want
    climb their way to the top of the country
    anyone who has enough money and desire to run for president, probably shouldn’t be elected

  • Samira commented on the post, horses 7 years, 9 months ago

    horses are so beautiful
    so powerful, so fast, so wild
    and yet, when you place your hand on their nose, so gentle, so loving
    they are intelligent enough to be picky in who they love
    and when they love you, you are theirs
    so beautiful to watch and so beautiful to know

  • Samira commented on the post, stunning 7 years, 9 months ago

    her smile is stunning
    it reflects the sun in its warmth
    wraps me in a hug with its genuine love
    sparkles like the stars when it reaches her eyes
    it radiates her joy to anyone who sees it
    simply stunning

  • Samira commented on the post, study 7 years, 9 months ago

    I study the way he moves…his personality through the way he walks, the way he gestures when he talks, the way he relaxes his body when he sits down. I study his eyes…the depth of his eyes when they tell me a story. the color, oh the brilliant color that changes depending on the light […]
