• Holly commented on the post, alterations 5 years, 6 months ago

    I am a shape shifter. You think it is you who is changing, but it is I who change you. I stare at you, day in and day out, challenging your true image by showing you a possible image of yourself, an altered image you slowly come to believe and accept. Do you know this, or do you go through life’s motions, none the wiser? Sometimes I like to t…[Read more]

  • Holly commented on the post, icicle 8 years, 2 months ago

    Cold. Frozen, like your heart. Stabbing, like your tongue. Hanging precariously like the weight of all your wrongdoings. Icicles, like those you embedded in my skin. You are glass, frozen glass, temporary glass, melting, leaving me, leaving all of us.

  • Holly commented on the post, tires 8 years, 2 months ago

    I make myself smile. On this endless road I ride, my tires eating pavement like a hungry horse. I am racing toward my destiny, toward a future of unbounded opportunity. Me, and you, and all of us, we are altering the future as we are running with it.

    Dear awakening of epiphany, please dawn on the days of reason. I can’t keep breathing in this cold night air while ambling along a path I don’t understand.

  • Holly commented on the post, comfort 8 years, 2 months ago

    Comfort? I know of no such thing. I am an empty shell without mind or soul. No epiphany has lit up these dusty old bones in a long while. I undermine myself without thinking about the untruths I am spreading. Down come the weak walls of me I tried to construct. How silly of me […]

  • Holly commented on the post, advice 8 years, 3 months ago

    I wanted to take your advice. Plain and simple. I knew it was the right path. However, my heart saw no destiny in following it. Here I stand in my dilemma, wishing I had want enough to follow in your footsteps.

  • Holly commented on the post, prosperous 8 years, 3 months ago

    I do not prosper in the modern world. I am a shrinking entity, the middle class. Restrictions upon restrictions choke my wallet. Suffocate me.

  • Holly commented on the post, setting 8 years, 3 months ago

    You speak but don’t say. You are an empty promise, and we are walking these cold unfriendly halls without noticing. Hospitality in the hospital doesn’t exist, like you no longer exist in this setting with me. We could be watching the waves crash onto shore together but you choose for us to each be alone.

  • Holly commented on the post, edge 8 years, 3 months ago

    The edge of the earth. Electric minds surge forth and over. Forth and over they go. I am your brain. I disregard the edge. We have horizontal limits but we stretch upward like tall pillars of connection. We are connected to an idea bigger than we are, an idea that stretches across the cosmos.

  • Holly commented on the post, punishment 8 years, 5 months ago

    I could be graphic about your abuse but that would only serve to waste time. Back and forth we can go, under laws that do not fully protect, but that solves nothing. You will never know the extent of the damage you caused. No matter what I do, no matter what I say, you will […]

  • Holly commented on the post, near 8 years, 5 months ago

    I am cheating you, dear sixty seconds. I heed not your ending. I feel you draw nearer and I feel the speed with which you draw close but I do not finish when you end. It is when you end that my brain fully starts to bleed the words I have been coming to all […]

  • Holly commented on the post, near 8 years, 5 months ago

    Mother: It’s something entirely opposing near. Frigid, unyielding, emotionally distant. When I think “near” I am really thinking “the opposite of far.” That’s why I am what is absent from my life, subconsciously, so I don’t have to worry that I’m missing anything.

  • Holly commented on the post, discovery 8 years, 5 months ago

    Simple scrap heap. You are what I left inside now rediscovered with different eyes. I leave you again and again, knowing you will always be there, knowing you will never affect me in the same way. I am the discovery you unwillingly made, the back turned against you in a troubled state, turning over like […]

  • Holly commented on the post, discovery 8 years, 5 months ago

    It’s about yesterday’s lies and dreams that have no tethers. You will find only what you want to find in the fragments you don’t want to deal with. Pieces, pieces. We are pieces. And we don’t know each other anymore.
