    one day, she thought, it was quite simple but,
    what if everything was just fine?
    the dough rolled in her hands, back and forth,
    what if it was all just okay?

  • Sara c: commented on the post, dating 5 years, 4 months ago

    is it really that much
    to ask that you love me as painlessly as you did when we first met?
    is it too much to wish for a kiss
    much like the ones we shared before
    they tasted like hope and sunny skies
    now they’re sad stale lies that linger on my lips as i lay awake at night thinking about breakfast and laundry and furniture sales

    you used to…[Read more]

    sheets wrinkled,
    pale porcelain against a shabby grey
    that would be beautiful if you weren’t lying in comparison.
    there’s a shine in your eyes that no one else can see
    and i almost feel guilty
    for keeping something like that to myself. almost.

    there you go again
    out of my sight
    out of my reach
    and i’ll push all my feelings under the rug again
    until you come back to me.

  • Sara c: commented on the post, officers 6 years, 8 months ago

    everything i write is about you or how whatever im scribbling is not worth reading
    sometimes i just wish i could wrap my arms around you and hold on tight
    and feel exactly like i did when we first met and i was falling so fast
    but you can’t fall forever.
    you’ve never stopped chasing me but somehow i’ve lost the courtesy to run
    you’ve never…[Read more]

  • Sara c: commented on the post, patient 6 years, 9 months ago

    why are there days, when thoughts spill right into my fingers
    and make them twitch around a pen,
    or they form right in the back of my mouth and push because they’re desperate for escape
    but on days when i need the power of language more than i’ve ever needed anything else
    im silent
    and still
    and utterly apathetic?

  • Sara c: commented on the post, available 6 years, 9 months ago

    i’ve got words wrapped up in me that my mouth has never seen
    words that no pen will ever trace across a page
    too vulnerable for eyes and ears
    too cold for summer skies
    too much for me to bear.
    untangle me

  • Sara c: commented on the post, roof 6 years, 9 months ago

    i was going to actually try to write something
    but im pretty much hating myself right now
    and everything about me.
    why is it so hard for me to be okay with myself?
    if i had the balls to jump off of the roof and be someone new, i’d do it.

  • Sara c: commented on the post, higher 6 years, 9 months ago

    When you fall, you really fall. you crash.
    you could have taken me as high as you wanted
    and i thought that i’d have let you
    but i wanted to taste the dirt
    so i let go of you
    and when i hit the ground,
    you were the greatest thing i’d ever seen leave.

  • Sara c: commented on the post, major 6 years, 10 months ago

    you are so much
    there is no small word to describe you
    there is nothing insignificant about the way you are
    who you are
    you are electric
    you are positive
    you are loud
    and you burn like the sun.

  • Sara c: commented on the post, solution 6 years, 11 months ago

    Sometimes I can feel my heart beating
    deep in my chest
    and it’s a grounding, take your breath away feeling.
    I’m here. I have blood pouring through my veins, I have thoughts spilling out in every direction.
    I am real, as real as anyone else.
    And it seems so basic, but that’s a strong thing to realize. It really is.

  • Sara c: commented on the post, bury 6 years, 11 months ago

    I buried you in my back yard
    with the fish that died when i was six
    and scruffy, he died when i was four
    I buried you in the back yard
    with all my other dreams
    and that one poem I wrote for you
    And my […]

  • Sara c: commented on the post, wet 6 years, 11 months ago

    my life slips right through my hands
    like water
    all of my thoughts pour endlessly down a drain
    and i try to catch them and decipher each one
    but they just slip between my fingers

  • Sara c: commented on the post, fresh 6 years, 11 months ago

    Today is new
    but i feel so old
    so held down but the things that hold me down every day
    someone come peel away my skin so i can grow a new spread
    someone come pinch my face
    i need color
    someone come shine a […]

  • Sara c: commented on the post, walls 6 years, 11 months ago

    i wish i had the capacity to live without walls
    barriers
    i string them up right in front of people
    and they put their palms on the glass and mouth words like “please?” and “why?”
    and i just stare and stare […]

  • Sara c: commented on the post, combine 6 years, 11 months ago

    Chemical reactions happen in all kinds of different ways
    id like to think of us as a nice little combination
    our chemicals touch each other and react together in an instant
    like mixing blue and yellow and […]

    before i was this way
    there was you
    i was different like i said
    but you’ve stayed the same all this time
    i love you for that. i love you for everything you are.
    i didn’t love anything before.
