• Izumi commented on the post, imaginary 2 years, 2 months ago

    Somewhere on the cusp of reality and fantasy is another person whom I love with all my heart.
    Sure, I accept that he — or she — or they — are imaginary, but it doesn’t stop them from loving them any more. I can feel the softness of their body, the warmth of their skin, the affection. I don’t know if it’s because I’m longing for real…[Read more]

  • Izumi commented on the post, slate 4 years, 1 month ago

    Each new lover is like taking a wet cloth and wiping down a blank slate.
    They start out smooth, pristine — cold, yes, but so beautiful that it feels just so right to wipe your hand down their expanse, their flat planes.
    But then they get mottled, marked, stained with color or with blood or with whatever you like. Because that’s exactly when you…[Read more]

  • Izumi commented on the post, weaving 4 years, 2 months ago

    Gold thread, silver thread, she weaves the stars through the sky and leaves midnight silk hovering in thin air.
    She is the goddess that breathes words from her frosted lips and he is the mortal that stands on the debased floor and looks up, always worshipping and always devoted.
    Their fates weave together like two star crossed lovers, but it’s…[Read more]

  • Izumi commented on the post, together 6 years, 5 months ago

    Together forever, we interlock hands and feel our hearts beating together.
    Together, we’re the unstoppable duo of the playground.
    Together, we hate each other but we really do make a good team.
    Together, we lay […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, blindness 6 years, 5 months ago

    They been following a presence, not even a true physical form, for so long.
    She thinks she’s gone blind in this darkness. It doesn’t really matter, since there really was nothing worth seeing in this place.
    She […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, crew 6 years, 7 months ago

    They were the kings and queens of the school hierarchy.
    The ones with the high top sneakers and the low cut tops.
    The ones that had their hair perfectly curled and their skateboards lined up in a locker.
    The […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, doorknob 6 years, 7 months ago

    It’s always slippery, almost like it’s locked, but if one has a firm grasp on it and yanks with all their might, the door slides open.
    It’s a quiet, mahogany filled office, almost with the slightest bit of […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, bandages 6 years, 7 months ago

    All up and down his arm – like a map, marking battle scars, tears lost, fights won.
    She relished that worn and torn beauty.
    He hated it.
    But she loved it anyways, gently caressing the wounds until she cried […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, adviser 6 years, 7 months ago

    She stood next to him, smiling, proud.
    He never looked at her, but took every single word of hers in stride. She never got any thanks, nor did she get any compensation.
    But she was just happy enough seeing him […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, suggestion 6 years, 7 months ago

    Here and there, there were questions, criticisms, and worse of all, other people’s opinions flying everywhere in the conference room.
    “Shut it!” The captain yelled, slamming his fist on the table. Everybody fell […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, turbine 6 years, 7 months ago

    There were rows and rows of wind turbines, spinning their fans off.
    This was what she loved most about Denmark. It was a lovely place to relax and vacation, but the wind turbines not only was a symbol of economic […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, bucket 6 years, 7 months ago

    Oh my.
    I’m a little bit of a Homestuck fan so I was immediately taken aback when I saw this.
    I never really understood the idea of a bucket in the web comic, but of course, it’s something hilariously […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, overalls 6 years, 7 months ago

    The faded pair of overall lay in my drawer. I hadn’t worn it since elementary school, and by high school, I had forgotten about them.
    But they were the last thing from my childhood I could remember. I wasn’t much […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, science 6 years, 7 months ago

    I believe there’s a science behind everything, even the smallest things that seem to be controlled even by fate itself.
    Fate could be a part of science, but it’s something so bizarre and out of the box that […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, modem 6 years, 7 months ago

    It’s a word that I have mistakenly thought was “modern.”
    Modem. I’ve heard that word in Homestuck before – have I?
    It’s a little difficult to write about a word that you don’t even know the meaning of.
    I’m sure […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, railroad 6 years, 7 months ago

    The railroad is made up neat, silvery rods.
    Everyone can see them when one looks over the side, but they give everyone a slight sense of vertigo. Is it the fear of being pushed off?
    They’re so neat.
    And they […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, cells 7 years, 8 months ago

    There was a line of them, all in a row. Ilsa flinched as she was pushed along the cement, and thrown into the nearest cell.
    “Serves her right for mass murdering all those people,” a police officer chuckled. Ilsa could only glare back. She would find a way out, no matter what.

  • Izumi commented on the post, station 7 years, 8 months ago

    I stop off at the train station, looking out towards the city. It’s my city, drenched in midnight, splattered with colored lights. It’s my beautiful city. But it’s not as delicate as it looks. It’s created from titanium and steel, and leaves everyone breathless. I turn away from my city, and head back towards the […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, rise 7 years, 8 months ago

    To go up, off the ground, and rise into the air seems like the stuff of fairy tales. And yet, many of us despise having to go so high up in the air, flying in crowded airplanes, being afraid of heights, and yet, the bird’s ability to rise up and fly seems so…magical. What are […]

  • Izumi commented on the post, teacher 7 years, 8 months ago

    Teachers aren’t just the kind that you meet at school. They aren’t adults either. They can be a dog, a cat, even your best friend. All a teacher is, is someone who respects your learning and will teach you. You can learn all sorts of things, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be in school.
