    The little girl held hands with her father, his Reds cap placed on her head. It slid over her eyes and she giggled as he pulled it back up, kissing her on the nose. He picked her up and spun her around, the cap […]

    Shuffling up the aisle, past the cells, bending at the corner. The two men on either side of him verged on dragging the convict across the concrete floor, but resisted. The door stood bleakly ahead of the ragtag […]

    Splash Splash SPLASH!

    I giggle as the wave of water splashes into me. My mother sighs, grabbing me before I can run after my brother for retaliation.

    “How many times have I told you kids,” she grumbles, […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, ratings 6 years, 12 months ago

    I grab the paper and rip it open, scanning the page with bright eyes. No, no, no, no, no, YES!

    I scan the article, looking for names. Then I glow with pleasure. Being rated as one of the best actresses in […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, torch 7 years ago

    All I can see is the dim flickering circle illuminated by my torch. But the others march beside me and all of them have torches and together all of our little circles create a large, dim light that we carry with […]

    Patterns patterns- repeating and peating and repeating and on and on forever and there are patterns within patterns and all kinds of different patterns, on and on and on forever and ever, repeating and peating, […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, petition 7 years ago

    “Please sign!” I cry desperately. The man stares at me in disgust and moves on.

    “Someone! Anyone sign to help the poor and needy!” I wave the clipboard above my head and spread my arm out, welcoming the crowd […]

    We have spent so long destroying in order to create, we have to remember we can save what we have and turn it into something just as new.

    “But-” I protest. It’s not my fualt. How does he not see that?

    “Go!” the commander waves his arm wildly above his head and I flinch.

    “But sir, this is everything to me and I honeslt didn’t-”

    “Get OUT!” […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, brunch 7 years ago

    We met for brunch. Her eyes avoid mine, reaching for crystal glasses. I rub my temple. Crystal…we threw the crystal. At each other.

    The lawyer pushes the forms towards us, making my Eggs Benedict want to […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, town 7 years ago

    She is the small town girl, the one they write songs about. She is the one who stares into the distance, wishing to see more, to live more. Trapped in a town too small for her heart and soul, she will wait and […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, generator 7 years ago

    I cannot think of anything. I quickly click through, again and again. But all the thoughts that are generated are dead-ends, failures that lead to nothing. I let my head fall in my hands. Why is the generator […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, crescent 7 years ago

    The moon is mostly dark, a small sliver of light barely peeking it’s way out, casting strange shadows on the frosty world below. The snow falls quickly and the grass stalks are coated in crystals of frost. There […]

    Cut my string and I will float upward…daring you, teasing you to try and catch me. But I float out of your grasp, up into the azure sky.

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, maze 7 years, 1 month ago

    I turn. But again, all I can see is green and nothing. I start to pant faster. The path I have taken to get here lies behind me. Or is that a different one? Different paths spread out and I pick one at random, […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, camera 7 years, 1 month ago

    I lift the heavy black camera up and snap several shots of your laughing, bright, happy face before you notice. Turning away, letting your dyed black hair falling back over your shoulder and stalk away. I am […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, hoop 7 years, 1 month ago

    You will always set up the hoops through me, guide me into jumping through each and every one of them. But I am not you. I have never been nor will I ever be. So I will stop jumping through your hoops, and I will stop trying to hopelessly to please you.

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, cabin 7 years, 1 month ago

    The cabin is built with a place, empty of a roaring fire. The cabin is built with a solid door, one that hangs open in the drift. The cabin is built with a creaky floor, one that is now covered with moss and debris. The cabin was built with all the comforts of a home…a […]

  • Jocelyn commented on the post, fences 7 years, 1 month ago

    I try to cross over the hallway to a group of chatting girls, but one of them glares at me with a gaze so icy and uncaring that I flinch, freeze, and turn, walking away. There is another group, talking even louder. I try to get close, but they freeze me with their eyes and […]
