• Beebee commented on the post, stalling 5 years, 3 months ago

    I’m pretending that I can’t see the slow
    tick
    of time
    as I type the first words I have written in years
    is it years?
    have I waited that long?
    how long did I ignore that steady
    slow
    tick
    of time
    as I let other things
    take
    my hands.

    Aching fragilities, building over years of unwanted sacrifice and motivated prophets who seeked the finest wines in the darkest vineyards, until the loss of marrow corrupted

  • Beebee commented on the post, cook 6 years, 9 months ago

    She is cheerful in a miserable place
    her cheeks are round in a friendly face and
    she is warm and kind like ovens standing on iron legs

    she holds you with her hands that have kneaded bread
    needed you to tell her that you loved her
    like the mother that you’ve never had

    did you?

    Her mother’s breast millk
    pouring into an open mouth
    salty and sweet
    pure

    full of nutrients needed for a healthy mind to grow
    and grow
    and grow

    until there is another mother
    and another baby
    nature […]

  • Floating, falling, sweet intoxication.
    Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation.
    Excuse me while I go melt at that man’s words, perfectly describing everything I have and have not known, beautifully executed, […]

    The back of the car was dripping.In the dark, she couldn’t tell what. Quite frankly, water would be preferable. Or even oil.Yeah, a great big leak in the gas would be perfect. Sadly,the police didn’t call Joan and […]

  • Eponine24601 commented on the post, cabin 7 years, 7 months ago

    It was warm by the fire. Granted, it only made a difference when one sat right beside the fire, but it seemed like a better idea to curl up beneath the stars with the fire’s warmth. The cabin was just too stuffy. And out there, beneath the twinkling sky, the two of them could be […]

    Build them up, tear them down. No, they are not walls. Walls shut people out. Walls push people away. But fences? It means you’re just waiting for the right person to jump over the edge and find you.

  • He breathed, in and out, in and out. His breath became shallow. Not much air left. “Please,” she cried softly. “Do not leave me here alone. There is no life worth living without you.”

  • Eponine24601 commented on the post, dessert 7 years, 8 months ago

    It was thick, creamy, and way too rich for her taste. Chocolate cake like this was difficult to come by, though. Slowly she wrapped her fingers around the fork, poked a chunk of cake, and placed it in her mouth. She chewed laboriously, savoring the taste even though she felt like she was ready to […]

    Erupted lava particles swarm the hot air, ash and soot finding their own place on the castle’s grounds, as if they had a long day of working out before their big move.

  • Eponine24601 commented on the post, dull 7 years, 11 months ago

    The gray clouds rested simply in the gray sky. The bare trees created a dark outline against the sky. Time passed slowly, no signs of life anywhere. It was simple. It was melancholy. It was dull.

  • Eponine24601 commented on the post, scout 7 years, 11 months ago

    She climbed up the springy tree, going as high as she could. Her eyes swept the surrounding area, looking for any sign of water possible. Only the bright blue ocean stretched before her. Then she realized… “Guys, it’s a circle! The whole arena is a circle.”

  • The heart lifts, yet still it falls. The sight is too much to bear, yet the eyes still watch. The tears come, but do not stay. They still somehow manage to disappear. The frown that was once a smile reverts to its previous form, and the arm that was glues down rises to wrap around […]

  • Eponine24601 commented on the post, spring 7 years, 11 months ago

    It sprung forth from the ground, the last bloom of the season. It grew beneath the chilled September sky, face stretching towards every last bit of light it could reach. It could not prevail. As the sun set that very first day that it greeted the world, it too reached that endless sleep that marked […]

  • I suppose things were good back then. But it all went wrong. As Fantine said, the tigers come at night. I suppose I really had no choice… I suppose this is how it was always going to end. I suppose that it could have never been helped. But I wish, with all my heart, everything […]

  • Beebee commented on the post, pouch 8 years ago

    I curl inside the warmth of you
    hidden within the maternal fold
    waiting for that one moment

    when I shall see light for the first time
    and take my first shaking steps
    tasting air

    and leaping in it
    and bounding with newfound exertion.

  • Beebee commented on the post, insect 8 years ago

    It moves beneath your notice
    underfoot

    with little legs that move independently
    though its mind is that of the hive

    moving as one
    merely one dancer in a single troupe.

    To gather food
    to kill its prey

    they’re all the same
    and yet

    different.

  • Beebee commented on the post, ant 8 years ago

    It moves in hazy crazy lines with no pattern to them but the faintest scents and finds its way and winds its way to the sugar food it loves and carries the burden on its back to its queen not the queen it loves, but the queen its forced to serve beneath the iron will […]
