• Steffie commented on the post, flames 6 years, 7 months ago

    My heart felt like it was engulfed in flames. They roared inside me, threatening to destroy me whole. There he was, my little brother, dead. Gone from me forever. I stare up into the eyes of the man and scream profanities at him. None of this makes any sense. How could someone murder a little boy? Why would someone murder a little boy. I pull the…[Read more]

  • Steffie commented on the post, brief 7 years, 4 months ago

    It was a brief meeting. That one time I saw my father. I had no more than 5 minutes with him. If someone had told me he would be dead in a few hours, I think I would have never left his side. But no one did, so […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, racket 7 years, 4 months ago

    I groan. Those stupid kids next door are making a racket. I look over to notice kids my age partying. Teens make-out in corners while other get drunk or high. I roll my eyes and go back to my movie. I’d much […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, nest 7 years, 4 months ago

    It’s like living in nest. I haven’t moved from this spot in days. I’m surrounded by blankets, garbage, and clothes. I sit and stare and think about what I could have done to help. I could have helped, and I […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, jelly 7 years, 4 months ago

    Jelly. It’s a weird thing. It’s thick, but it runs. It’s different than all other substances. It breaks the mold or what is usual.

    I am jelly. I am different than other. I am not “usual.” I am not […]

    Treaty.
    Treat.
    Trick.
    Hurt.
    Pain.
    Cry.
    Sob.
    Broken apart on the inside. Torn to pieces. Never whole again.

  • Steffie commented on the post, emptying 7 years, 4 months ago

    I was emptying out my childhood. This room held journeys, mysteries, and all my fairy tale endings. Now, I was moving. I packed up all these things as my best friend cried for me. I was emptying out a lot more […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, cap 7 years, 4 months ago

    I placed the baseball cap on my head and turned towards my father.
    He was back from the war, and in celebration, we were going to a baseball game. It was my first one ever, and I was overjoyed.
    That was, until […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, necessity 7 years, 4 months ago

    It was an absolute necessity that I graduate high school, but to graduate I had to past these stupid exams. I NEED TO PASS! but with all these facts in my mind, it quickly becomes too much. I easily confuse them […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, convict 7 years, 4 months ago

    That was it. That was the conviction. I was going to prison. Forever.
    All because of my love for me. My love for Alex was getting me locked away forever. This was the end. I looked around and said my silent […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, dilemma 7 years, 4 months ago

    I’m at a dilemma. Do I tell her no or do I just pretend like I’m okay with this? This problem is bothering me. It eats away at me. It keeps me from sleep. It keeps me from peace. It’s killing me. What should I do? […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, transform 7 years, 4 months ago

    I transformed from a girl to a lady in seconds. It’s funny how death does that to you. It takes away your youth. It takes away your love for fun. You freedom from worry and stress. Death changes you. Death […]

    “That was quite the stunt you pulled,” Mom said.

    “I know,” I replied proud.

    “You can’t treat your elders like that.” The car stopped. “And if you are going to behave like that, I’m done with you.” I looked […]

    I waved goodbye to my family as I left. I was on a quest. I was gonna find myself. I was gonna find my destiny. I hopped into the Tardis with Doctor Who, and off we flew. I looked back one last time before turning […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, calling 7 years, 5 months ago

    It was calling towards me. As I stared down 20 flights, the ground called towards me.

    It was so alluring. It was a way to end all the pain, all the suffering I had ever felt. It was a way to make this…burden […]

    There it was the pile. Ever kid’s dream was to jump into this. The largest pile of leaves in the whole world. And now, after an hour of waiting in line, it was my turn to jump.

    But I couldn’t. I was so high up. […]

  • Steffie commented on the post, upright 7 years, 5 months ago

    Being upright. What the heck does it mean? I know it means something like….straight?
    I groan as I stare at the test in front of me.
    “Define upright,” it reads. I don’t know. I have to ace this. Without this, […]
