    “I left the oven on, oh no, oh no,” I chastise myself as I halt in the process of getting in my car. I can’t leave. I can’t leave. I have to go back and check. Why do I always do this?

  • Hailey commented on the post, middle 2 years, 11 months ago

    I am a middle child. My brother is older, he set the pace for our family. My sister is younger, she gets what she wants. I am a middle child. My voice is not heard, my opinions are not valued. I simply am there as the center of two loud siblings. I am a middle child. Maybe I would be different if that wasn’t the case.

    The coil wraps around the nail as the electricity runs through. High above my head it crackles and light and light and boom lightning Tesla what am I even writing I need sleep now but I have work to do minute is up gah.

  • Hailey commented on the post, overt 5 years, 4 months ago

    Overt your eyes. Something suspicious is happening over here. My face burns as I stand closer to the fire, closer, closer still as he beckons me forward. One more step and I’ll be in the flames. The voices cry louder and louder. Breathing deeply, I look at him with a smirk and take the action I know will end my wretched life.

  • Hailey commented on the post, repressed 5 years, 5 months ago

    It’s like depression. But you have to hold it back. I’m being held back. I’m suffocating. I can’t breathe. LET GO OF ME. WHY ARE YOU HOLDING ME BACK. I can’t let anyone know. I’m strong enough to handle you on my own. Good day.

    Rolling
    Rolling
    My life is Rolling out of control
    It’s all downhill
    I can’t stop
    So I keep on keeping on
    Hanging on for “dear” life

    Following. Come and follow me. Drop your nets and run. The nets will fish for themselves, but you must come, leave your family. Let the dead bury their dead because you are alive in me. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. He will come, and will not be attractive in appearances, but he has come to…[Read more]

  • Hailey commented on the post, toaster 5 years, 9 months ago

    A toaster toasts bread. Not toast. Sorry people. If your toaster toasts toast, you have a pretty sucky toaster. Because you would have had to already toast bread and then need to toast it again. Twice-toasted toast. A toaster can always toast bread. But many toasters need not toast toast. Think again, people toasting toast.

    L’instructeur. J’entends la musique en francais maintenant. Donc, je pense en francais. J’écrit en francais. Ma vie, c’est francaise.

  • Hailey commented on the post, hoping 5 years, 10 months ago

    Hoping is like hopping. You come down after going up. What one moment is an extreme high becomes a depressing low in the next. But it is cyclic. It will rise, it will fall, but the fact of rising and falling is a constant thing. Though the rate of hop(p)ing is not necessarily constant, you can stand firm and know that lows are sandwiched by highs.

  • Hailey commented on the post, distilled 5 years, 10 months ago

    Water. Like in chemistry class. Gosh, I hated chemistry. I really sucked at it. The numbers were on the paper and in my calculator and I knew what I was supposed to do, but there was some sort of disconnect. It just didn’t make sense. I think it’s because it was a bit too menial and too reliant on being perfectly exact that I just couldn’t stand…[Read more]

  • Hailey commented on the post, piano 5 years, 11 months ago

    The ivory keys feel cool and pleasant under my smooth fingers that so desire to play a tune. I laugh as my fingers dance of their own accord and spell out a melody in their wonderful freedom. Nothing compares to the feeling of being able to make music, for my hands, my fingers, my mind to work to make an inanimate object glimmer and sparkle as the…[Read more]

  • Hailey commented on the post, hell 5 years, 11 months ago

    Hello. That’s what my friends used to say if they were trying to cuss but wimped out. “What the hello?” They were scared of saying what they wanted to. We were young. Now no one is left. People have become ruined. I hate it, but maybe I have a little bit too.

  • Hailey commented on the post, transmission 5 years, 11 months ago

    The radio crackled as the message came across. Dots and dashes clashed and clamored and punctured the air as they were translated into words, sentences, messages. When would the next attack come?

    My eyes are definitely not in a drought. They won’t stop raining. And D’Ette Marie Marceaux I hope you are reading this to know that I did this without you because you abandoned me in a place where I knew no one I would talk to. Because you left to “use the bathroom” and didn’t come back for half an hour but to pack up your bag and not say a word.…[Read more]

  • Hailey commented on the post, senator 5 years, 11 months ago

    Old people gathering in the Roman Forum because they need to discuss political matters. They are wearing Togae Virae, of the highest status. They shine bright white amidst some of the lowlier people, wearing their less pulchritudinous garb.

    The picture that appeared. I believe it was a scene from Spartacus.

  • Hailey commented on the post, overjoyed 5 years, 11 months ago

    Her laughter made him smile. He couldn’t resist being happy when he saw her. Even when he was feeling the lowest of lows, she just took something in him and made it so that he could barely remember what was getting him down. She could see it in him. What she did to him. There was no denying it, no moving past the point that anytime she smiled,…[Read more]

    The player ran up the court to catch the ball as his teammate missed the shot.

    He ran to her when he missed me. I ran to him when I missed him. We both were sad but neither wanted to be sad together. It was time to be done. Still, I cried for 15 minutes that night before I told myself I…[Read more]
