glow

She’s been gone too long, years removed from the flames that used to burn from the tips of her fans. It will take time, dedication, perseverance to relearn tricks of old and master those of new, but one day she will burn again, worthy of the tool that calls to her through their flickers licking the wind.

crumble

You watch as everything dear to you crumbles, all but a hollow artifice masquerading as happy relationships, met goals. But this is the world you deluded yourself into seeing in desperate hopes all could be well. The world is not perfect.

others

There are others out there, people who could potentially be a part of your life should you so choose to extend them a hand. But there’s always a risk in forging bonds. Some connections are flimsy. Others only stay strong until a need is met.

resignation

You turn in your resignation, and just after that you’re gone. You have nothing to do with this life anymore. You’re going to move on, regardless how difficult, trying, and painful it promises to be because change doesn’t come easy. But there are times when you need to turn to the next page.

dating

She laughed at the thought. Her, spending every waking moment with a significant other, and if not physically, then thinking of them, imagining every curve and contour of their face, wondering what they were doing at that very moment and thinking should I call?

olive

Her olive green eyes gleaned gold under the summer sun. She walked across the sand, ready to sink into the cool waves, and the light danced upon the water, ready to welcome her in.

climate

You have to analyze the social climate to know what’s okay and disastrous to do with company. But you’ve never been good at it, so you always cower inside and hide within crowds, placidly, if not looking glassy, nodding your head in agreement while hoping someone doesn’t yet at the same time does notice you in the sea of heads.

graceful

You try to navigate the corkscrew of social interactions, but dealing with your feelings and their feelings and trying to prioritize who when just tires you out. You’re not graceful. You’ll never be a social butterfly.

armor

You wear your apathy like a suit of armor, impenetrable even to the sharpest, keenest emotion. You stand unmoved even though all the laughter, joy, hate, and cruelty make you want to crumple in a mess of bone and limbs and wail for all humanity.

noise

You try to stifle the noise, clap your palms over your ears, but it only creates a cavern that amplifies the sound. You release your hands, but they’re still whispers in your head that you can’t shake.

barbeque

You bite into the tangy, grilled flesh and taste a tinge of orange, lemon, and cinnamon. The sauce dribbles from your chin and paints your fingers caramel — hardly a picture of grace. But here you sit under umbrellas on the back porch, music blaring, friends and family’s chatter and laughter a soundtrack to this scene to be remembered but never relived.

patio

You sit out on your patio. The day crawls by, slowly, inching along in the baking heat. The sun toasts your skin with a bronze glow.

burning

The burning in his chest flares sometimes. Other times, it crumbles into a light smolder the warms from the inside but still festers as a constant ache. Even though it was the right decision, it never leaves him hurting.

legendary

Legendary implies grandiose, larger than anything that can be fathomed. But like with so many turns of phrase, overuse has diminished its impact, made it into nothing more than hollow words aspiring but not quite reaching what it really wants to be.

unhealthy

It’s unhealthy, they say and you read and you drill into your mind ten times over. But for whatever reason, the habit’s hard to kick. Without even realizing, you fall back on what feels comfortable, safe. But it’s not good for you in the long run, so how do you quit?

savings

You put a little bit aside for later. It’ll come in handy someday, in case of emergency or of spontaneous need to disappear and escape. You’ll have enough soon enough, but you just have to keep building.

dilemma

This is what most people suffer from most of the time. I’m always caught in one. The worst part if when you feel that you need to be in one in order to make a good decision. The best part is when you have a process of figuring out why. Sometimes, it is the lack of will power and effort that results in dilemmas lasting forever.

endless

It’s an endless stream of thought. There isn’t a final destination, just a point where the cycle restarts and you relive the entire sequence over again. Even though you’ve figured out what’s wrong, what mistakes you’ve committed and how to fix them, you’re doomed to repeat them till the end of time.

rattle

He rattled her sense of composure. She thought she was so good at keeping herself together, keeping herself in check. But he barged in without stripping off his sneakers, weaseled his way through her defenses into her heart, and she didn’t know what to do.

clever

So clever with your language and subtle gestures suggesting an entirely different idea than what your words relay. Why is it you’re so crafty, and why can’t you say outright what you mean?

gridlocked

Gridlocked. You can’t get out. Fences gnashed together in a cage enclosing you. You claw at the metal barbs, only for their sharp tines to scratch claw marks into your skin. But you have to climb. Even if it’s a struggle, you have to find your way out.

armor

We put on our plates, slip on our helmets, lest we walk into battle and the enemy ambushes us. But what are the real dangers but those to the heart, the ones that pierce through its walls and wrench us in ways that have nothing to do with blood and vessels?

point

It points to any direction, a multi-cardinal fixture, and you don’t know which way is right. Is there even a correct path, or are you supposed to just wander down each one and decide which leads to your destination?

clean

Start off the new year with a clean slate. Take the bad and good of last year, expand upon them, and forge forward anew. Goals set, paths in the process, avenues to explore. Time is yours, and it’s time to seize it.

judgment

It’s best to reserve judgment until you know all sides of the story, but even then, could either of those perspectives be tainted? Not even out of ill will, but simply because as one person each, we only see things through our own eyes, comprehend things through our own mindsets.

blaming

Just the act of blaming alone does nothing but shame someone into anger or sadness. It’s a tactic to assert dominance, to claim you’re better than the other because of their wrong. Yes, we must all atone for our sins and learn from our mistakes, but simple name-calling accomplishes naught anything.

graduation

Graduation, from one milestone to the next. Commencement, they also call it. You’re starting a new chapter in your life. Where will it take you? You work so hard to get to this point, so don’t you owe it to yourself to keep going, to continue working and aiming for the top?

flee

You can’t always flee from the things that haunt you, that paralyze you motionless. In order to grow, to change, to evolve into our best selves, we must face our fears head on. But mind, it’s hardly easy, or else it wouldn’t be something we fear. Still, it’s all about progress.

united

United we stand, so the adage goes. But what does it take for such different parts to fit into a whole? The process of coming together isn’t as easy as a jigsaw puzzle with neatly cut holes and knobs. We have to iron out our differences, buff the rough edges until they can sit side by side, within one another.

blurred

We weren’t supposed to, but we blurred those lines. Maybe we let ourselves because we needed the company. One of us trapped in a dark place within. The other too naive to understand the feelings flaring between them. And so we explored, a confusing, see-sawing journey that’s forever left a mark in my heart, perhaps even once you’ve long forgotten me.
