    withhold your emotions, don’t let them show
    if they see, then they will know
    if you can’t hide it, let them go

  • paige commented on the post, adorned 6 years ago

    her dress was adorned with pearls
    her smile adorned with sinister
    her hair pinned up in curls
    her arm graced a minister
    her eyes pierced the room like a sin
    and oh that blood red grin
    eyes like daggers and nails like blades
    her sparkling dress hiding her like shades

  • paige commented on the post, wheat 6 years, 2 months ago

    he is the sunlight streaming through my window in the morning that spreads warmth across my cheeks
    he is the hot cup of coffee with tendrils of steam that wakes me up
    he is the wheat toast right from the toaster with the bright berry jam in a layer on top
    he is the morning and i am the night

  • paige commented on the post, destroy 6 years, 5 months ago

    his purpose was to destroy
    to build things up and then destroy it, smash it to bits
    building up my trust just to wreck it
    building up my hopes to tear them apart and break them
    building and destroying
    playing a game that he always won and i always lost
    but it was a kind of addiction, this game, i just couldn’t quit
    because maybe i liked to lose it

  • paige commented on the post, season 6 years, 6 months ago

    the seasons change but i never do
    people change but i stay the same
    the world around me is perpetually moving and turning and morphing from one thing to the next
    but i, i stay the same
    stagnant and stable and apathetically unchanged

  • paige commented on the post, stir 6 years, 6 months ago

    I watched her stir the dough, I’d like to think that she really wanted to make a nice breakfast for everybody but I knew that baking was just something to keep her busy. She had to keep her mind off of it–off of everything. Suddenly the ball of sugar and butter was the most important thing to her and nothing else mattered. I didn’t want to be…[Read more]

  • paige commented on the post, late 6 years, 7 months ago

    it’s too late for you to come on your white horse in the silver armor to sweep me off my feet and carry me off into the sunset
    it’s too late for you to take back everything you said
    it’s too late to help me, now
    it’s too late
    too late
    too late
    not soon enough

  • paige commented on the post, mention 6 years, 7 months ago

    did i forget to mention the way your eyes light up when you see the sky
    did i forget to mention how much i love your laugh and how you tilt your head to the side when you smile
    did i forget to mention how much i love the tinkling of your laughter when you think something’s really funny
    well
    if i did,
    i’m mentioning them now

  • paige commented on the post, thought 6 years, 7 months ago

    i thought when you said forever, you really meant it
    but i guess forever is a really long time, you know?
    i never really thought you could outlast forever, but i hoped you would
    but you didn’t
    i thought when i said i’d be fine, i really meant it
    but i guess being fine is hard when you lose someone you love so much, you know?
    i never really…[Read more]

  • paige commented on the post, presence 6 years, 7 months ago

    his presence was like a flame slowly inching towards a stream of gasoline
    he ignited something within me that i never knew was there until he was
    he brought me alive and i never even knew i was dead
    he made black and white into technicolor
    his presence was like fire and i was ice, melting at his touch

  • paige commented on the post, civilize 6 years, 8 months ago

    she acted civilized on the outside but on the inside she was a firecracker waiting to be set off
    she was waiting for someone to ignite her, to send sparks
    she was waiting to burst into bright and beautiful […]

  • paige commented on the post, gone 6 years, 8 months ago

    he is gone
    and when he left he took his suitcase
    and his jacket with the long black sleeves
    he took his toothbrush and his laughter
    he took my heart
    but he left the memories and that’s what kills me the most

  • paige commented on the post, wet 6 years, 8 months ago

    the droplets of rain slowly fall from her coat leaving a wet shadow in her wake
    she tosses her umbrella on the ratty carpet and shakes her head
    her raven mane dances through the air before framing her face and […]

  • paige commented on the post, possible 6 years, 8 months ago

    is it possible that maybe just maybe somewhere deep within you, buried far down beneath all of those layers that you feel the same way about me that i feel about you?

  • paige commented on the post, scene 6 years, 8 months ago

    her words are painting a scene
    i’m a bystander watching the actions unfold
    i can hear the people screaming and i can do nothing
    i can smell the fire, i can smell burning
    i can see flashing lights and reds and […]

  • paige commented on the post, fawn 6 years, 8 months ago

    a little fawn in the forest with tawny fur and white speckles on her back
    a little fawn running from the fire and tendrils of black smoke trailing through her home
    a little fawn burning in flames and turning to ash

  • paige commented on the post, affairs 6 years, 9 months ago

    secret affairs with my heart that my mind does not know about
    listening to my heartbeat and ignoring logic and common sense
    living on the edge and following the road i rarely travel
    secret affairs with risk

  • paige commented on the post, people 6 years, 9 months ago

    people see what they want to see
    they see a beautiful girl and not the scars
    they see a handsome boy and not the sad eyes
    they see the beauty and not the pain
    they see the faux smile and not the flicker of […]

  • paige commented on the post, trial 6 years, 9 months ago

    i’m on trial everyday, the past accusing me of things and holding me back from the future
    the evidence is the nightmares and the haunting flashbacks
    the evidence is the memories and insomnia keeping me up all […]

  • paige commented on the post, blindness 6 years, 9 months ago

    blindness
    darkness shrouds the park and i can see nothing but black
    deafness
    quiet fills my ears and i can hear nothing but silence
    confusion
    i don’t know what’s going on all i know is you are no longer […]
