    He dug the blade deep, deeper. Liquids emerged from the bird’s fleshy surface. The knife stung his palms, he grasped it with such ferocity. He ripped through its skin, leaving long gashes that exposed it’s pale bones. He stabbed it, short staccato motions, again, again. He dropped the knife. It clattered to the floor, splattering […]

  • Katie commented on the post, repeat 7 years, 10 months ago

    I spent hours,
    listening to the same, heartbreaking song.
    On repeat.
    Because it reminded me of you.
    If only I knew you’d tell me,
    what I wanted to hear…
    The next day.

  • Katie commented on the post, lightning 7 years, 10 months ago

    Thunder clapped outside my window. Light illuminated the black sky, leaving blue imprints behind my eyelids when I blinked. I remembered back to my childhood, when my mother would scoop me up and wipe my tears during storms. She told me how thunder was just God bowling, and I believed it. I still like to […]

  • Katie commented on the post, violet 7 years, 11 months ago

    She picked the flower and ran her fingers across it’s vain covered purple surface. A soft wind blew her hair, and cooled her shoulders. She held it’s green stem in her hand, gently, and let the grass tickle her toes.

  • Katie commented on the post, violent 7 years, 11 months ago

    Love is violent.
    When we’re apart,
    All I think about is you.
    When we’re together,
    All I think about is you.
    I love you.
    You’re everything to me.

  • Katie commented on the post, megaphone 7 years, 11 months ago

    His mustache brushed up against the megaphone speaker, flecks of spit spraying everywhere when he pronounced his “s’s”. The noise echoed around him, and it made him feel powerful, and strong.

  • Katie commented on the post, cigarette 7 years, 11 months ago

    I blew a hazy puff of smoke that had been in my cheeks out into the crisp fall air. I dropped the butt, and ashes fluttered as it fell. It hit the ground, red sparks still aglow. I crushed it with the tip of my boot.

  • Katie commented on the post, bow 7 years, 11 months ago

    A single tear ran down my cheek. I never wanted to do this. To be a killer. I approached the body slowly, and removed the bow from the wound, as dark blood spilled over the man’s un breathing chest.

  • Katie commented on the post, expecting 7 years, 11 months ago

    I waited there. The seconds and minutes elongated into an hour. A single, devastating, hour. I couldn’t leave though. I kept telling myself…he might still come.

  • Katie commented on the post, chores 7 years, 11 months ago

    I picked up the final dish and scrubbed it’s surface. Blue dish washing soap dripped down the sides and left inky puddles on the sink’s metallic surface. I rinsed the dish, and delicately set it to the side.

  • Katie commented on the post, maroon 7 years, 11 months ago

    I wrapped my arms around him and breathed in the smell of laundry detergent from his maroon sweater. He hugged me tightly, and rested his cheek against the side of my head. “I’ll only be gone for a month.” I whispered. “I know,” he replied, pulling away from the embrace just enough to look into […]

  • Katie commented on the post, assisted 7 years, 11 months ago

    He limped, and began to fall. I reached out a hand and steadied him. He clung to it, as if It was his life, which was too fragile as it was.

  • Katie commented on the post, honest 7 years, 11 months ago

    I don’t always like it when people are honest.
    I try to be honest myself though.
    Not brutally so
    But
    Enough that someone knows when they’re
    Bothering the shit out of me.

  • Katie commented on the post, predict 7 years, 12 months ago

    I gazed at him as he sat across the table. He was looking the other direction, and didn’t notice. He did the adorable little thing with his eyebrows, where he raised them both and scrunched his nose a little. I guessed he felt my stare and turned, a small quirky smile on his face, and […]

  • Katie commented on the post, held 7 years, 12 months ago

    I cradled his tiny head in my arms. His hair was soft blond fuzz, and his skin was fresh and white. His eyes remained closed, but he moved his pudgy arms and yawned.

  • Katie commented on the post, rise 8 years ago

    The sun peaked on the summit of the mountain, round and full like the smooth surface of a egg yolk. The beams shone through my window and warmed my toes that stuck from the bottom of my sheets. I sat up and yawned, excited and joyous for yet another day of summer.

  • Katie commented on the post, teacher 8 years ago

    She dusted the chalk off her long bony fingers by clapping her hands together a few times. It fell like snow down onto her black pencil skirt and clung there, white, delicate flakes of powder.

  • Katie commented on the post, corner 8 years ago

    I sat down, my back pressed against the dent in the wall. My father rounded the corner, his large feet thumping against the carpeted floor. He leaned down close to me, face red, breath smelling strongly of alcohol. “Next time you’ll think twice about back-talking your dad, huh?” he mumbled, raising his hand to strike […]

  • Katie commented on the post, painted 8 years ago

    I splattered red and blue against the canvas. Inky dots flecked my cheeks and hands and spattered up my arms. I threw yellow and pink, leaving un-even splotches of color covering the pasty vanilla of my palate.
