slate

There was a wrapping sound sudenly on my desk and i nearly jumped six feet in the air. My teacher’s stern face was staring down at me and my skin heated with the power of a thousand suns. “Erase your slate, miss,” she hissed. “There is no doodling in my classroom.” While giggles filled the room, I quickly erased the sketch of the boy in front of me with my sleeve.

selective

selective. a word of wonder. one that means freedom of choice and happiness. It is one of the best words in the world.

He was selective. Very selective. He never came over to my house on time when we were young, for he couldn’t choose between me and another friend.

strung

I was strung-out. A week of no sleep, too many cigarettes, too many cups of coffee and a pit of building anxiety buried deep in my stomach made me unable to sit still or think clearly.

decompose

there the leaves and fruit and egg shells rotted in the back garden it was moist and disgusting and the idea of sifting through it to retrieve my daughter’s frisbee disgusted me. it was only then that i saw the finger poking out of the semi-decomposed dirt.

coach

there was a man and a bag and a train the bag went on the train with the man – the man didn’t want anyone to see the contents of the bag. in it was all that remains of his life. the events that had unfolded in the last year of his life had destroyed all that he had ever known about himself and what remained of his past was contained in the bag.

attracted

If humans were only attracted to other species, where would we be now? Earth would be a cesspool of cross-species, with no “purebreeds” to brag about. Everyone would be truly different, not just in the sense of our personalities, but in the sense that our DNA and genes hold the cells of an entirely different species.

blasted

As we blasted off I looked out the window at the planet we were leaving behind. Smoke billowed from the charred, withered earth and ravines ran like gashes across the face of a dying nation. The world was ending in flame and in horror, the sun scorching us from the outside in. Our leaving was our only hope to live, but I couldn’t help but think of those who wouldn’t be leaving; wouldn’t be breathing; wouldn’t even be crying for those loved ones lost.

returned

I once returned a bottle full of wine to the wine store. No I didn’t. I need to return a few things to stores but its hard to do it with the kids. I feel like I should return some of the decisions I made in my life, but there they are.

weakling

I am no weakling. I have survived many painful things in my life. My own molestation. My sister’s rape. I have been to ten funerals in the last fifteen years. I am strong. I am hardened, and hidden, and lost. I am so many things, but I have never been weak. I am a fighter. I fight for myself. I fight for others. I fight for beliefs, and values, and love. No one is weak who can love another despite faults, differences, and fears.

instill

I hoped to instill in her a sense of wonder, of adventure. My daughter was brought up going on trips all around the world. By the time she was 16, she’d been to Taiwan, New Zealand, Zambia, and Peru. She never seemed to appreciate it. She never saw the value in learning other cultures, in learning to love the world just as it was made, and never trying to change others. I wanted to instill her with love and kindness and mercy, and I failed. She cares about shopping, boys, and cars, and if anyone else doesn’t share those values, she writes them off. I hope someday someone can get it right, because if the next generation doesn’t learn to love, societies will continue to implode.

speak

Speaking is difficult. At least for me, and only if I want to say something important, about my opinion. I can say stupid stuff, so much stupid stuff spouts from my mouth, but when I want to say what is truly in my head, about a book, or a film or the news, I just cant speak.

real

Real, were flooded with it, our eyes gleaming as we look into the clutter on the planet, the hunger, the waste, and then we turn away, unable to stand the absolute horror of our greed.

applied

I’m just thinking I need to apply myself, but I’m not qualified at being the me, that my brain says its up for, the potential me, is locked in a test tube bottle somewhere, this drag ass me, is waiting to get the call.

knows

He knows guides us and makes us feel guilt, as if we have been seen without our permission, and now have abiding guilt, every feature betrays us!

rise

I rose with the sun, careful to not make a sound. I didn’t want to wake up anyone in the house. I slipped on my sneakers and forced my wild hair to be tamed into a bun. The first few minutes were awful, breathless and chilly. Later on, I would learn to relish those moments, the moments that were there when you were down but now you are on top of the world, running faster than god and feeling lighter than air

bury

bury people in the ground when they’re dead and maybe they’ll come out and grab you when you visit the graveyard. that’s a little weird. they should probably still have those bells in the groundin case people aren’t all the way dead. death is inevitable i guess. what can you do about death? nothing at all it’s going to happen to best of us. shit. i can’t even think about death i’m a 15 year old girl in high school. what do i know about life let alone death…

scene

The scene was set.
She put out candles, the yankee kind.
She ruffled her hair and pulled on her black underwear, lacy for how racy she was feeling.
She knew that this wasn’t the type of thing that she normally did.
But she needed a good fuck.

fawn

i had to admit it.
i was stuck
i was possessed by the beauty of his eyes
of his smile
of his laugh
of his hair
of the way he said my name
of how he walked into the room.
of the way he made my heart skip two beats
of the way he made those stupid butterflies come back every time he winked
i was struck
i was paralyzed.
i had to admit it
i was stuck
i was fawning over him.

affairs

Get his affairs in order, they said. Did he tell you of his affairs?
That’s such an impersonal way to let him go.
Such a crazy idea, that a person is the physical things that he left behind.
Why do i care what he left?
All i can care about is that he’s gone.
That his wrinkly face won’t smile at me again
That I have to put him under the dirt, killing me inside.

covered

My legs were covered that night. Not that he paid attention to that at all. Nope, he took what was covered and attempted to cover it with his own body. It’s one thing to do that when you’re in a relationship and it is mutual but it’s another when it’s not mutual. When it’s considered assault. WHen i don’t want to be covered by you, but now my mind seems to be covered by all of the faults that i have since you tried to hurt me

chain

It bars someone in, like a dog or a person. It can be real or not. I have mental chains, things that bar me from doing what i want to do, like depression or anxiety. I have the chains of my ancestors and chains of my future. To be the best now means to have no future chains.

methods

A method is the way you do something. People may have methods about cooking, sewing, ect. But methods are great cause they make you, you! Live your life with your methods.

losses

This is different. This isn’t like when you were seven and your puppy died, or even when you had to attend your great Aunt’s funeral when you were in the sixth grade. This hurts. This is personal. They keep saying “I’m so sorry” but they have no idea. You don’t even have any idea. What’s happening to you? Stop, don’t answer that. Take a deep breath. Try to go on. I know it’s hard.

“What are you doing here? Haven’t you done enough?” she mumbled, brushing her hair out of her eyes.

He looked at her, almost sadly. “I, uh, came to see if you were okay.”

“My sister’s dead. Why would I be okay?” she hissed.

“I’m sorry. I really am, Kara.”

“You are. I know. Doesn’t make it hurt any less.”

seeds

Thinking about the Spring and planting again, ah but nothing survives, my efforts. It’s better I am a bird and pick them in my teeth, they give nutrition and i am better for other endeavors.

pour

The sand in the hourglass was falling down rapidly. I knew that I needed more time. Sixty seconds. I needed more than sixty seconds. I needed sixty days, sixty months, sixty years. I needed time. I needed to see you again. Your beautiful face, the smell of your hair, the touch of your skin as you kissed me in the pouring rain. Oh, how I loved you. But all we had left were sixty seconds, and a lifetime of memories.

It was raining outside. Actually, it wasn’t just raining. It was pouring. I was completely soaked by the time I got home, and it is only a five minute walk from the busstop.

emptying a vessal that holds water is meditative, pouring out your heart in tears also relieve the dry places in your soul that have chapped from lack of feeling. Being.
