• Julia M commented on the post, afraid 6 years, 6 months ago

    I’m afraid of college. As much as I want to run towards it, it seems as if my heart or my head or my something is constantly pulling me in the opposite direction. I’m afraid of change, of everything being new and […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, science 6 years, 8 months ago

    Sometimes things are easy, like science, straightforward and simple and logical. Make that rarely. I wish things were like that all of the time, sometimes. But then I have to remind myself of the other half of […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, saturday 6 years, 8 months ago

    Saturday, maybe things will be different. Maybe I’ll wake up today again and last night will have been a dream. Simply my unconsciousness developing new and devious ways to tortue my consciousness, with stories of […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, seeds 6 years, 9 months ago

    Plant a seed, plant a piece of hope. When you spread yourself out among others like the many branches of the tree, be sure to spread seeds of hope rather than seeds of destruction, or even worse, than nothing.

  • Julia M commented on the post, dwell 6 years, 9 months ago

    I try not to dwell on things, but then what always seems to happen is because I try not to, I do even more. Reverse psychology at its finest, wouldn’t you agree? It’s why we fall when we cling to our individuality […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, minute 6 years, 9 months ago

    A minute can be infinite or infinitesimal. It can be the world or it can be nothing. With a minute, you can save a life or take one away. Minutes may seem small but minutes turn into hours, which turn into days, […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, fractures 6 years, 9 months ago

    Fractures are small. So small that you barely notice them. Perhaps that’s why you barely notice me when I get up the courage to slip you a smile or glance at you from across the room and pray that you’re not […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, persons 6 years, 9 months ago

    There are so many persons on earth. I mean, when you think people you think of the ones you know. But really, there’s a number so vast that it really seems infinite. To think that there are billions and billions […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, pits 6 years, 9 months ago

    The pits, that rock bottomy place. That’s where I am right now, or at least that’s what it feels like. It’s summer, I’m supposed to be spitting out cherry pits and looking at gross sweaty armpits, not feeling like […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, keen 6 years, 9 months ago

    He looked at her with keen eyes. They were full of something-not the kind of something you read about in romance novels or the kind of something that you hear about from mothers and grandmothers. It was a special […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, framework 6 years, 9 months ago

    The framework of the soul is delicate. Incredibly so. However, it is strong enough to bear the pain of our existence. The extraordinary toll such a weight is on ourselves, yet the framework bends and groans until […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, pour 6 years, 9 months ago

    I absolutely love the sound of pouring rain. I love it because of the power of nature and the prowess of each drop hitting the ground combined together. I love it because something so singular and so individual is […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, mayor 6 years, 9 months ago

    I’d like to meet the mayor, I’d like to tell him or her or whoever they are just what I think of this town. It’s not them, I’d say, it’s just that I feel trapped in this small town, that my dreams are bigger than […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, recycle 7 years ago

    Reduce, reuse, recycle. A series pounded into the youth of today’s world so many times it’s hard to count. Is that what we have become? Instead of making more for everyone, we make less so it’s okay that so and so […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, popcorn 7 years ago

    Pop, pop, pop. So easily done, so autonomously, without thought or question or reason or rhyme. I wish life was like a bowl of popcorn, something we could do without thought or worry or wonder.

    I suppose then […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, epic 7 years, 1 month ago

    An epic love story, that was what she wanted.

    It didn’t have to be with the one she married or the one she slept with or the one who danced with her on those lonely nights.
    It just had to be with the one was […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, lilies 7 years, 2 months ago

    The lilies on the side of the river shivered. The cold wind was brazen, it grazed their petals and made them dangerously close to wading. The water was better than the wind; better to drown quickly than feel like sin.

  • Julia M commented on the post, oil 7 years, 2 months ago

    Slippery, slippery, says the snake.
    Slide through, sticky and thick,
    It was an oil-filled lake
    The gleaming surface of the slick
    Was enough to make the most
    Coordinated of us
    Afraid of doing a pre-swim boast.

  • Julia M commented on the post, dozen 7 years, 2 months ago

    A dozen, so good, so great. A dozen donuts, a dozen eggs, a dozen roses, a dozen. But what about that one that gets left out? A dozen girlfriends (plus that one who got away). A dozen parties (and that one you didn’t get invited to). A dozen heartaches (plus that one that mended them […]

  • Julia M commented on the post, apron 7 years, 2 months ago

    The apron was covered in stains but she liked it that way. Some cooks changed into a crisp, clean apron after they were done in the kitchen, but that wasn’t her style. She wanted the world to see the work she put into her baking. Getting a little dirty now and then was worth it.
