    She felt as if she’d been thrown from a cloud by some Greek or Roman god who sought to punish her by forcing her to live among the ordinary. Always falling, always anticipating the shrieking pain the hard ground on her spine would bring but always falling still. Never caught by consequence. A narrow smile creased her lips as she drew the knife out…[Read more]

  • She had none. The rest of the world seemed to have a plethora of friends, acquaintances, lovers. She could plainly see their perfectly calculated happiness through social media profiles and captioned pictures but she, she trusted herself alone.

    He glanced up and the dark doubt shrouded him. Impossible he thought. Yet still he went. He went right up to the man and socked him in the face. Stunned, the man staggered back, his burly form bouncing against the brick. “How does it feel, getting hit by a faggot, huh?” the boy shouted in desperation. The constant disapproving stares, the und…[Read more]

  • Mother tried to kill herself that night. She called from the hospital “Sweetheart, you got in! You’ve been accepted!” Those words wrapped a chain around my heart and sent it down, down. How do you tell a severely depressed woman who’s just found a reason to live that her daughter doesn’t yearn for the prestige and recognition of an exclusive and…[Read more]

  • Emma Kiel commented on the post, failing 4 years, 11 months ago

    He sat in utter dismay in the hospital waiting room. She had done it again. He was failing. He grasped his head in his hands, shaking in agony. Why couldn’t he keep her from this horrible fate? Why couldn’t he stop her from wanting desperately to die?

  • Emma Kiel commented on the post, stood 4 years, 11 months ago

    I stood, my feet cemented to the damp morning grass; not even the gray wind could sway me. I should have wept. I should have fallen to my knees and let my soul pour out my eyelids and escape. I should have grasped his mother in my arms, heads resting on corresponding shoulders. Instead I stood, staring, gazing at that slab of rock surrounded by…[Read more]

    I stood knee deep in the sea. The wind rustled and whisked away that ship. That ship has sailed. That chance is gone and I stand knee deep wishing it would come back. Come back.

  • Emma Kiel commented on the post, never 4 years, 11 months ago

    Ill never go anywhere. Ill never do anything. Ill become a mom of 3 kids in a house with a part time job and a dead soul. NO. I refuse to never do anything . I will do everything. I will laugh, cry, bleed, die and I will always do everything. You can’t contain me with never.

  • To live fiercely. To deny them your mind, to refuse the blinding screens the white noise of their idiotic voices and seek refuge in the currents of the wind.

  • When I was 10 my convictions were based on what I learned from Jesus but now I know that there’s more to the universe than the god who supposedly created it. I was born with a mind made to do more than worship. I’m not clay. I am living technicolor.

    What are the things you are thankful for? Are you grateful you’re alive right at this moment? I hope you are, and that you are happy. You deserve happiness in your life.

  • Jess commented on the post, hardly 4 years, 11 months ago

    there’s hardly a word for what she’s feeling right now. she feels like she’s being completely ripped and torn apart, but she’s never felt more refreshed than she does now. she feels like she’s hanging on a limb, but she’d probably feel more breathless and free if only she knew how to let go. life is hardly a choice. it’s a place you just let…[Read more]

  • Jess commented on the post, gust 5 years ago

    Do you ever think about how many people you’ve met in your lifetime? Ho many faces have you seen? Has it reached a thousand? Ten thousand, hundred thousand? Perhaps a million people’s faces have passed through your line of vision. Do you ever think about how many emotions you’ve felt in your lifetime? What variation of emotions have you felt?…[Read more]

  • Jess commented on the post, worn 5 years ago

    The ground beneath her feet is wet and with the worn soles of her shoes, she can feel the water seeping in through; she wiggles her toes and she smiles.

  • Jess commented on the post, worn 5 years ago

    There isn’t much that she wants in the world except that she be happy with the way she lives.

    It’s probably much harder than it is seemingly is but she wants to believe that one day, she won’t be as worn out by the world as she is now. Maybe one day, she’ll be able to meet that person in the eye and tell him that she’s happy with her life.
