    His act was juvenile,
    his words were plain.
    All of his writing lame,
    he sounded twelve.
    If you tried to delve
    into what he said,
    you’d hit a very hard
    concrete bed.

    I can imagine her body slowly drifting through the water, fish pecking at her flesh and seaweed becoming entangled in her limbs. I can see it all happening, her empty vacant expression and the way her body is twisted in all the wrong ways from being dashed against the rocks.

    My elbow collides with the bridge of your nose and I don’t feel it but I hear you yell. I whip around and I might have hit someone else in the process, but I don’t care because all I care about is that you’re okay and that you don’t hate me. Your glasses pressed into your eyes and there are a few tears trickling down your face. I apologize profuse…[Read more]

  • Lily commented on the post, eleven 4 years, 12 months ago

    When I was eleven, I met a little girl.
    For about two months, she was my whole world.
    I thought of her daily
    and all that she told,
    because all of her stories seemed to be gold.
    And I loved her so much
    that when she went away
    I fell into utter, complete, disarray.

    She moved forward, centimeter by centimeter. It felt like even though she was moving she wasn’t getting anywhere. The sand lodged itself under her already dirty nails and she fell to her hands and knees, feeling to weak and tired to walk she dragged herself across the dirt instead. Crawling like a scared and wiled animal. It was only a little ways…[Read more]

    Your boots crashed through the messy terrain. The massive fauna curling around your legs and trees looming over you, shadowing you from the beating and pulsing sun above. You felt your ankle twist as you misplaced your foot and as you came crashing down a bird called out in the distance, a long, lonely, solitary cry.

    Tune into the channels
    chew the wires raw
    contemplate your mistakes
    and live like nothing is wrong

  • Lily commented on the post, falter 5 years, 1 month ago

    Her brain falters
    her words stutter

    and everything falls apart

  • Lily commented on the post, falter 5 years, 1 month ago

    She started walking up the stairs, one foot in front of the other. At the tenth step she faltered, she glanced behind her, but of course no one was there. She tried to make herself move forward, to reach her destination. But ever since that day she hadn’t been able to do it, she would get this far and every time she would falter. Never able to go…[Read more]

    I’m kind of stuck on elegance
    as silly the word may be
    but something so beautiful
    surely should be recognized

    even if only from you
    to me

  • Lily commented on the post, elegance 5 years, 1 month ago

    Her face was made of different dimensions
    they all reached out to me
    and in her mind were upturned daisies
    addressed to the inward sea
