    The megaphone is a tool for the soft spoken. It yields power and a way to voice ideas that might not be heard over the hustle and bustle of many voices chattering or shouting at once. If it’s meant for the quiet ideas, why do they ones with loud ideas always utilize it?

    I have a crush. A crush on a feeling, more than a person. A crush on the feeling of a new mouth close to yours, when the crushing weight of tension and frustration and anticipation squeezes your lungs until your breathing just stops.

    The radio is the best friend of someone who is stuck in the car. Ever since it was invented. Always being there, with a cheery voice and a song.

  • Rachel commented on the post, limo 7 years, 11 months ago

    Limousines are the ultimate symbol of luxury. I am very lucky in that my mom loves to splurge on renting these stretched out ways of transportation, because I have been in a limousine more often than most people. To the airport, to concerts, to the ballet, to tour the city, to weddings, to birthday celebrations. […]

  • Rachel commented on the post, remember 7 years, 12 months ago

    Remember everything you told me? Because I do. And all of that shit is hard to forget. Remembering everything makes it so I can;t move past you. I can’t be happy anymore. All of those memories mean nothing to you.

  • Rachel commented on the post, despair 7 years, 12 months ago

    Despair is the ultimate low. You can’t move, can’t function, can barely breathe. Exasperation takes over, and between the last rolling tears you just stand there, helpless and unable to do anything about it.

    Domestic goddess. The woman who can cook up a dinner for four all while keeping the kitchen spotless and wearing the most adorable 50’s inspired apron. Call me old fashioned. I dream of it.

  • Rachel commented on the post, mole 8 years ago

    Adorable. Little black furry creature, with only a little bit of pink showing through it’s nose, whiskers, and bow legged paws. Scurrying across woodland paths to go dig another underground maze.

  • Rachel commented on the post, curious 8 years ago

    Curiosity leads to trouble. Always. Especially if you’re curious about how his lips feel. How strong they are, what they taste like, how warm he is, or how his tongue moves.

  • Rachel commented on the post, bones 8 years ago

    Bones are keepers of secrets. Hard, stone, white. Silent but can reveal so much. So much about the person they belonged to.

  • Rachel commented on the post, crew 8 years ago

    Crew! Michela does crew. I wish I knew more about it. The people that row tend to be really passionate about it, and not to mention all the strapping young gents that seem to participate. I always think of the ultimate English collegiate preppyness when I think of regattas and rowing.

  • Rachel commented on the post, birth 8 years ago

    I was just thinking about this today. That “welcome to this world” moment. Coming from the warm, dark, protective interior to the bright, cold, dangerous exterior. All the beauty and pain in this world is ready to be discovered.

  • Rachel commented on the post, waver 8 years ago

    Waver? Someone standing up in a crowded bleacher at the baseball stadium, frantically waving their arms back and forth in a futile attempts to catch the attention of their friend across the seats. Spilling drinks and popcorn on everyone around them.

  • Rachel commented on the post, deadbolt 8 years ago

    Deadbolts offer protection. That kind of protection where you want to trust so badly, thinking that it will ultimately stand true in the end, but are still concerned, way back in the recess of your fear, that it will give way and open the door for monsters.

  • Rachel commented on the post, luxurious 8 years, 1 month ago

    Luxury is just that, a luxury. I don’t always look for luxury in my life, it isn’t something that I value as much as other qualities. Luxury is usually a good thing, though. An added benefit, of sorts.

  • Rachel commented on the post, hysterical 8 years, 1 month ago

    Hysteria is the best state to be in in terms of laughter. Those moments when your sides are ripping apart and your cheeks hurt from being pulled back for too long and there a tears just rolling out of your eyes as your laughter makes no sound. Those moments are the best moments.

  • Rachel commented on the post, determined 8 years, 1 month ago

    I am determined to live a good life. I am determined to look back on all this and smile. I am determined to get where ever the fuck I want to be. I am determined to be happy. My determination gets me through. I am determined.

  • Rachel commented on the post, strength 8 years, 1 month ago

    I am stronger than I think I am. And at the same time, I think I’m stronger than I am. James once told me this in an attempt to describe me. I live because I am strong, and I am strong because I live. Strength is admirable, and I am so proud to be described […]

  • Rachel commented on the post, plans 8 years, 1 month ago

    I have plans for my future. Plans for who I want to be and what I want to do with my life. Plans that will hopefully be fulfilled and I will be able to look back and be proud of my life. Planning is exciting.
