    Don’t fret with my claims, dear love. I’ll protect you (from paintruthwordschoice), and I’m always true to my word, aren’t I?

    Step away and come into my arms, precious.

    You’ve always wanted to go to the moon. You wonder if it’s underwhelming to sit there, staring at the stars and the blue swirling marble below. Maybe you’d send moon rocks and space dust for our birthdays – a reminder that you’re still alive, and not very far away. Maybe we’ll see you twinkling in the sky, coated with astro dust and existing among…[Read more]

    You’re pulling me in like an undercurrent, strapping me with talons and wires and jagged lines. I don’t know what will happen, what you want to happen, just that they will. This dread claws at my throat and pushes me under, pushes me back, until there’s nothing but the vastness of an overwhelming feeling neither of us can escape.

    He’s an elegant boy; his movements subtle, laced with quiet arrogance and an uncanny secret knowledge of the grand scheme of things. He has a hidden smirk, as if he knows the world’s story from beginning to end. […]

    There’s something up there. I don’t know what or who. But sometimes she talks to me. It drives me crazy because it’s like talking to an imaginary friend that’s real.

  • circinus commented on the post, emptying 6 years, 9 months ago

    I want to go on the cross-roads; on a countryside road trip where the possibilities are endless and the highways can take us anywhere and everywhere. I want to feel the wind as we breeze by the open road, emptying […]

  • circinus commented on the post, calling 6 years, 10 months ago

    Distantly, in a battlefield of blood and echoing cacophony, I hear you calling. Somewhere, you are there. Perhaps in a different time, in different circumstances, we could have been best friends. You are my most […]

    She thinks of Lord of the Flies and Catcher of the Rye. She doesn’t know why, but something about her friend’s novel makes her think of brooding teenagers and lonely islands. She wonders if that means anything to her friend.

  • circinus commented on the post, outgoing 6 years, 10 months ago

    Her hope lies between summer and spring, the short period of time when the days are hot enough to warm her skin. She met him during the days one of the rare spring storms hit her little town, his smile infectious […]

  • circinus commented on the post, chapped 6 years, 11 months ago

    Dainty lips, chapped with lies and the insomniatic mind – I wonder how it would taste with mine, when our breaths mingle and there’s only the ghost of a distance between us. This gnawing curiosity is eating me, […]

  • circinus commented on the post, slight 6 years, 11 months ago

    He hasn’t the slightest idea. Sometimes, she wonders if he’s just dense, or if he’s really faking it. He’ll never know, she supposes, how attractive she finds those dark dark lashes of his. Or the way he scats a […]

  • circinus commented on the post, fixed 7 years ago

    It’s a fixed state, this temporary happiness of yours. You long for something more each time, never content with what you have. It’s an admirable trait, this determination of yours – a sharp-edged blade in […]

  • circinus commented on the post, staple 7 years ago

    Bread is the staple food of this little village. He expected something weirder, like maybe goat feet or something. He didn’t know why. The village was unchartered in maps, located in the middle of nowhere, but […]

  • circinus commented on the post, duration 7 years ago

    There is drought and rain and winter leaves. We pass by this life once. And yet, it takes more than a lifetime to explain how much you love someone.

    This place is temporary. Love is forever.

  • circinus commented on the post, gallery 7 years ago

    It’s a gallery of movements – graceful, poised, and beautiful. She moves like a swan in those dusty floorboards and dim lights. She’s rehearsing dances in the dark because she loves being in the shadow’s […]

  • circinus commented on the post, curse 7 years, 1 month ago

    Apathy is the curse of our generation. It is the trap of a cage, where we are enclosed in glass walls to overlook the world around us. We may see, but never touch – we don’t care enough to leave this prison of […]

    “She’s kind of cute,” he says. “But she’s also a true blushing virgin, if there ever is such a thing. She’s so clueless! I tried to put the moves on her, but she doesn’t get it. A sheltered child, I’d say.”

    I […]

  • circinus commented on the post, track 7 years, 1 month ago

    He comes into the lounge at night because the rest of the students are already (should be) sleeping in their rooms. The music plays soft, and it’s so easy to lose track of what’s happening around him. It’s a […]

    They’re standing back to back, trying to be the pillar to the (only other) person who truly understands. They grope and grab and extend their hands, but they can’t reach what is not in front of them. He is the […]

  • circinus commented on the post, odds 7 years, 1 month ago

    What are the odds that our future is already set in stone? Maybe what we dreamed was meant to be, maybe not. Could our lives be predetermined? And if so, does this mean we have no free will?

    It’s a lonely thought.
