    The man played the accordion as he gleefully walked down the side walk. Snow was falling and his breath was visible in the freezing air. He had a big smile and his music was jubilant and joyful. I knew the song and hummed along as I passed him. He made my day.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, sparkling 7 years, 5 months ago

    Her eyes twinkling, sparkling even, in the moonlight. I held her hand tight in front of everyone present. I held my head high so she would be as proud as I was to be with such a beautiful woman. Everything I ever wanted is right next to me. I’ll be sure to never take her […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, bland 7 years, 5 months ago

    Bland days that never seem to change. Monotony just sinking in as a normal part of life, even if that contradicts all that I want from it. It’s getting harder to stand little to no change. If only I could see life from a child’s eyes with their wide eyes and enthusiasm.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, lilies 7 years, 5 months ago

    The lilies in the field just blow with the soft wind. The two of us sat, holding hands in the serene paradise. The sun was setting and even though it was quiet, nothing needed to be said. Everything was just perfect.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, dusk 7 years, 5 months ago

    At dusk, the masks come out and everyone has darkness to shroud their true nasty monster forms. They play tricks and snack on the innocent and helpless. Taking advantage of everything, they make the world lose it’s purity. As the sun starts to show itself, the masks go on with no time to spare.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, palette 7 years, 6 months ago

    The messy colors seemed mixed and scattered on the paint palette. Her brown hair was in a braid and she had streaks of paint on her face here and there. She was wearing one of my plaid flannel long sleeve shirts, with the sleeves rolled up. She finished a painting of a princess from a […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, gown 7 years, 6 months ago

    Her gown was astounding to me, even in the low light. The way she moved so gracefully through the room with each step. She took my breath away, but no matter what, she would never love me. And one day or another, I would have to accept that fact.

    I beckon ye to sing with me, the songs of ye olden days. To sing along to spread music and joy across the land. I beckon ye to come sing along to spread holiday cheer and be merry.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, sneaky 7 years, 6 months ago

    Sneaking down the hall, looking through the crack of her door. Light was flooding from her room into the small hall as she took sneaky steps into the silent home. She was getting ready to look for her Christmas presents while her parents slept. But she wasn’t quite an expert, as she got caught.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, return 7 years, 6 months ago

    Return, come back. Give me one last goodbye kiss. Give me one more minute to stare into your eyes, to glance at your smile. One last second in your warm embrace, one last second to be in your arms. One last chance to whisper, “I love you.” But it’s too late, you’re already gone. I […]

  • I walked out into the small kitchen, morning sun flooding in through the window. At the center of the table he left flowers for me today. It was the perfect centerpiece to that dull room. It brightened up the room, and my day.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, anywhere 7 years, 6 months ago

    Take me anywhere,
    so we can do anything.
    As long as you’re there with me.
    You’re the apple of my eye,
    my cup of tea.
    As long as you brighten my day
    with your smile and funny words.
    I will always care for you,
    even if you never know how much
    I love you.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, stunning 7 years, 6 months ago

    She stepped through the crowd, making her way under the disco ball in the middle of the dance floor. Her dress was stunning, even breath-taking. She had curly chocolate brown hair and crystal blue eyes. Her dress was green with ribbon and lace. She looked so sweet and innocent, like an angel. She seemed to […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, rules 7 years, 6 months ago

    Rules are put in place by one who rules to keep their people in order. Without rules, what would keep anyone from killing that guy everyone hates or stealing that car from that rich guy who always brags?

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, shuffle 7 years, 7 months ago

    Put my iPod on shuffle to escape the monotony. To escape repetition. To experience the new. To get the inspiration I’ve looked over. All from my iPod.

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, hearts 7 years, 7 months ago

    Hearts hearts, full of love. At the mention of love, we think of hearts. Some think of the heartbreak of a break up. I think of the love that will not be returned from the one I call my best friend. But maybe to some, it means heart disease. Maybe to some, it means a […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, existence 7 years, 9 months ago

    Life, existence. What does it mean to you? Does your existence mean love? Does it mean friendship? You must have some sort of goal. Or else you’re just waiting for it to stumble upon you. But why would you wait for someone to knock on the door to open when you can just open the […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, division 7 years, 9 months ago

    The two were the best of friends. Maybe even in love. But they were too far apart. And no matter how many phone calls or online chats. One would never be quite as satisfied as she wanted to be. To see the other in real life and be able to smile or laugh together. Distance […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, salt 7 years, 9 months ago

    He made me put on a stupid blindfold as we drove through town. I had no clue what was happening. But then again, this what I loved him for. He was so romantic and spontaneous. He opened my door and led me onto a spot with uneven ground. I could hear the waves, so I […]

  • Emily Hope commented on the post, sponge 7 years, 9 months ago

    He honestly didn’t mean to kill her. But the way she slapped their child, he couldn’t help but do the same to her, forgetting the knife in his hand. His ex wife lay dead on the floor. With only a sponge to clean up the blood of someone he once cared so deeply about, who’s […]
