• orangefish2 commented on the post, fatigue 1 year, 1 month ago

    When she opens her eyes, first Thing in the morning, she feels the familiar fatigue rushing over her. Turning her limbs heavy and her mind foggy. Like every other day for three months now. There are better days, but they are always bad. It’s been so long since she felt… well rested, energized and… herself.
    If she got out of bed within an…[Read more]

    “You care about him, don’t you?”, he asked after following my gaze.

    “I used to.” I say and try to swallow the feeling of guilt that overcomes me everytime someone only just mentions his name. Truth is, I still do.

    And now.. after all these years… he is right in front of my eyes.

    “Well, the way he’s acting means, he probably doesn’t…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, reaching 1 year, 4 months ago

    Sometimes in my dreams, you are still here. Alive and well and breathing.
    And rarely, when I am out and about… Someone resembling you crosses my path, and for a second I imagine it being you. That you faked your own death and are living a happy life now. Once the stranger turns around, reality crashes down on me. You are gone and I won’t…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, ghosts 1 year, 4 months ago

    You used to be a big part of my life and I thought we’d get on a little longer. Reality hit and time had moved us apart faster then I imagined.
    It’s been three years and sometimes it feels as if we’d last seen each other only yesterday. But then I see Pictures of you all and realize, it’s been much, much longer.
    You are the ghosts of my past,…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, automatic 1 year, 4 months ago

    This love was in the making for two years and finally, we’ve made it.
    We made it this far and now I can’t shake the feeling that I will never love the way like I used to, the first time around. It’s by far over, thank god, but while it lasted it was… quite different.
    I had the breath-taking, knees-shaking kind of experience. The one where…[Read more]

    “Leave. Now”. He shouted. “There is no way we both are coming back.”

    “I am not leaving you behind.” Henry answered firmly. Did he really not know? After all these years fighting beside him?

    “You are not staying. This was an order.”

    Henry laughed. “Acting like my superior is not gonna change my mind. If you are staying, so am I.…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, sunlight 1 year, 5 months ago

    There are so many memories that come to my mind when I read this word.

    The first one was when I learned skiing. Sunny and almost a little too warm, sunlight glittering in the snow. I was careless back then. A child who didn’t know any better.

    The very uneventful day I learned windsurfing is also part of those memories. There was a…[Read more]

    Your aura seemed to draw me Close to you. We easily got along, and though there were some Moments that were far from simple, right now I’d say we are in a good place. I like you and you like me too. I want more, as do you. We’re getting there.
    Still..
    Those dreams where I choose him over you – they’re not stopping. I don’t want to want him.…[Read more]

    It’s hard to leave after taking up this offer. I found a myself here in these last two years. Myself and a family. It’s not goodbye forever, I’m sure.
    But it will be the last time someone comes asking for my help. The last time I complain about the Buggy programs and the dry air. Or the cleaning woman when she’s starting to vacume clean at 7…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, altitude 1 year, 5 months ago

    It was a remarkable expierence. As the plane sped up, she was pressed firmly into her seat and for a millisecond, her breathing stopped as the machine rolled up the wheels and she was completly seperated from land for more than just a few seconds at a time.
    The altitude increased and soon the city was just a tiny visible spot under her, that…[Read more]

    Bang. Bang. Bang.
    He had promised her, he’d be home for Christmas. “I wouldn’t miss it for the world”, he’d written in his last letter.
    It was two weeks from now, his leave was granted and the plane tickets were booked.
    For two months he’s been looking forward to seeing her again after so long.
    Taking the picture of her out of his pocket, he…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, concerned 1 year, 6 months ago

    When you didn’t show up in School on Monday, nobody could reach you. You didn’t answer your phone and your parents didn’t either. I thought you threw in the towel because the finals had gotten the better of you and that you were out there enjoying the day, spraying “fuck School” on a wall.
    On Tuesday we still hadn’t heard from you. On Wednesday…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, plead 1 year, 6 months ago

    “You are making a huge mistake”, she begged me. “You won’t ever be able to return from this.”

    Turning around one last time, I found a thousand questions in her eyes that I was not ready to answer.
    Maybe one day I could forgive myself for all of this. But not tonight.

    “Perhaps I don’t want to.” I said and closed my eyes before the first…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, welcome 1 year, 6 months ago

    As I left the apartment, i looked down to my feet. One last time I looked at the brown door mat, we picked out together, two years ago. We never liked it, always wanted a funny one, that would make people laugh, once they entered. But we could never agree on one, and that’s why at some point, we bought this simple, ugly mat while shopping for…[Read more]

    “Take this with you, when you go. So that the last thing you will ever see, is something beautiful.” She had told him. Not even an if in that fucking sentence. Even she believed he would not return from this battle. Even she had made her peace with his death. How come she could do that so easily… when he could not? Yes, he had been a brave…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, mercy 2 years ago

    He was standing right at the edge of the podium. Axe in Hand he waited for the next candiate to arrive. It was the lover of the princess, the reason of recent gossip. In just under 20 minutes, he would no longer be. Was it right that he had to kill him?
    A man who had done nothing wrong but to love the wrong woman?
    His thoughts were interrupted…[Read more]

    I remember like it was yesterday. My first time on a beach. It was with you. And it was anything but romantic. On the northest point of Denmark on a cloudy november day. It was cold and the sand in the dunes we had to walk through to get to the shore was wet. Once we reached it, there were three dozens of dead jellyfish. I didn’t get my romantic,…[Read more]

  • It was a sunny afternoon in march. The last snow had fallen and was about to melt away for good. Daylight stayed longer every day. A butterfly was bathing in the sun on the balcony. The first sign of spring. This long, cold ass winter was over. Finally.
    And even though a bird ate the beautiful insect an hour later, life still felt pretty good.…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, resident 2 years, 2 months ago

    A resident looks outside the window, watching the children play outside. She remembers her childhood, the times she was the one, running around without a care in the world. She was a child back then, not a single worry on her mind. It was different now.. Everything was. She would never be this careless again. She would never feel at home. That…[Read more]

  • orangefish2 commented on the post, towers 3 years ago

    He ran up the narrow path, leading to the top of one of the towers. In the background, he heard the alarm bells ringing and people on the streets, screaming and running for shelter. “They’re coming for us!”he heard one of them shouting, which only spurred him on. Sprinting even faster than before, he jumped over the last stairs and sprinted to the…[Read more]
