    I was smiling with everything that I had as he jumped around acting like a goof. His foot slipped on a crack in the pavement and he sputtered forwards, then caught my arm, pulling me down with him. As we were laying there in the drizzling rain he pulled me closer to his warm chest and whispered “You know, you’re a real versatile girl.” Then we…[Read more]

    The aura that lifted from her shoulders evaporated into the air as they embraced for the final time.

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, wilting 5 years, 10 months ago

    I feel my shoulders turn into me as I walk down the empty hallway. My spirit has wilted, I am dejected. And so I try to be that, what that feeling is in this moment. I want to be it entirely. I am.

    Simpleton, you are no match for my mighty sword. Allow me to behead you, you won’t feel a thing, so don’t worry. Just lean back aaaaannnnd…

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, past 6 years, 7 months ago

    There’s something about the past that always comes back up in the future. It sometimes goes undetected for years until someone realized, like de ja vu , that they’ve felt that feeling or known that person. They’ve been there and done those things. It’s always there.

    I measured the hours and the minutes and they passed by in front of me. Nodding off, I couldn’t quite clearly see the clock that became blurrier and blurrier. It’s been too long. that’s all I know.

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, interest 6 years, 8 months ago

    I haven’t got an interest in politics or weather. I haven’t got an interest in any of that, but I do know that my interest resides in the way the sun moves over the trees and casts shadows and brightness across their needles. I haven’t got an interest in certain things, but I do have one in beauty.

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, steps 6 years, 8 months ago

    I take a few steps forward, and one step back when I see what’s been written on the sidewalk. In blue chalk, scrawled across my front doorstep are the words: “Blue skies are grey.” Overhead, the clouds rumbled in agreement.

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, teeth 6 years, 8 months ago

    With my teeth I bit into the fleshy bits of rabbit that I clutched between my fingers. Starving, oh so starving. It tasted so good that I cried into its fur. I’m sorry, but it was all there was that could satisfy […]

    The entrance was at the end of the tunnel. Too far away and too dark to see, but I just felt that it was there, I just knew. And if I walked just a bit farther, I would make it out alive. But I had to ask myself: […]

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, bury 6 years, 9 months ago

    I’ll bury my heart with a spade in the dark. It’ll still beat, but underneath the dirt it may not be as loud. Hopefully it’ll be covered up completely and I’ll finally have peace of mind about its whereabouts.

    I felt a wet tongue stroke my palm. Suddenly terrified, I quickly leaned over from my bedside and turned on the lamp. Looking about my room, I saw no one.

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, happy 6 years, 9 months ago

    Happy campers sitting in their campsite. Roasting marshmallows and singing with delight. Oh how I wish to be there, but no, not tonight. FIN

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, possible 6 years, 9 months ago

    It’s possible that I still like you, and then again, it’s possible that I’m completely over you. I just don’t know. When I saw you in REI today, my mind kind of freaked out and I couldn’t differentiate between the […]

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, fawn 6 years, 9 months ago

    I fawned at his beautiful features. The way his hair cascaded over his eyes…the way his lips moved apart and together as he formed my name. I was in a daze, but came back to my senses just as he said the words: […]

  • Baylee E. commented on the post, trial 6 years, 9 months ago

    We followed the trail along the old brick buildings behind my house. You’d never been there so I took your hand in mine, even though it was cold and clammy, and tugged you along the worn path, your feet dragged […]
