curtains

The curtains lifted like Marilyn’s skirt, hinting at something playful, something exciting, something better just beyond the window. But she knew better. There was nothing but prairie and grasshoppers and oil rigs beyond that window. The promises always broken.

pained

You could see it her in eyes. It pained her beyond anything she’d witnessed in her entire life, and it had been a long life. But the sorrow and anguish hung in her eyes like a noose, choking the life from her dreams.

truth

The truth is, it was never about the money. Sure, ti was a hell of an incentive, but there a million ways to earn that kind of money, most of them not legal, but neither was this. Either way, it wasn’t about the money. It was about something much simpler and much deeper than greed, jealously. If I can’t have it, neither could he.

instill

They tried so hard to instill her a sense of self. A sense of strength. A sense of worth. The only problem was, they never bothered to find out who she was, or where her strengths lie, or how truly valuable she was. They wanted perfection so badly, they never saw how perfectly flawed she was.

conjured

She conjured up his image in her mind just one last time. That’s all she needed. Just one more time and then she’d let him go. Forever. That’s what she told herself anyway. Maybe this time she’d actually listen. But as his sea-foam eyes and sun-streaked hair materialized in her mind, she couldn’t help the rush of heat that swept through to her core.

startled

I was startled by the sound of his voice. It was like waking from a nightmare for all the right reasons. The tone of his words caressed something deep inside me, wiping away all the darkness beneath within.

cave

She thought one day he’d give in. All his grandstanding and hoopla and shaking of fists was just an act. It was thin as a sheet of ice and she just knew that if she waited long enough and took just enough steps out onto the ice, he would cave like so many men before him. When she listened carefully, she could hear the faintest crack.

stalled

Her mouth opened, but the words caught in her throat, stalled my some emotion she could quite put her finger on. Anger? Hurt? Resentment? Whatever it was, it didn’t seem worth the effort of explaining. He’d never understood before and he was only asking now for his own benefit, not hers. Why lay open those veins when all he really wanted was something for himself.

growing

I can feel you growing inside me, a constant need getting larger by the day, more demanding, more depressing, more uncontrollable. I can feel you taking over, every muscle, every movement, every thought.
Growing
aching
taking
over
me.

murder

I wiped my hands on the towel and looked over the kitchen on e last time. Every corner, every nook, every divot in the vinyl had been scrubbed and bleached and scrubbed again. The candle hid most of the antiseptic smell.

ahead

Looking ahead is the only way out of this mess. We can bury ourselves in the mire of yesterday, but all it does is hold us back, hold us in place, remembering, reliving, but never moving. There is no hope in the past, only in tomorrow.

musical

They always said she was musical. She spoke in lyrics and walked in time to a song only she could hear. And it was beautiful.

real

This is real. This isn’t a movie or a novel or a play. I have to keep reminding myself that this is my real life. All this shit that’s been going on isn’t a nightmare. It’s alive. It’s living and breathing and working against me and the only one that can make it stop is me. There is no pause button, no stop or eject. This is here. This is now. This is real.

visit

We had to visit the grave today. I wish the clouds were covering the sky or it was raining or frigid outside, but the blue sky shone brighter than ever, not a fucking cloud in sight. The joyful sun beamed it’s mocking rays down on our backs, but not even hot enough to break a sweat. It was a perfect Spring day for a grave.

applied

She applied herself to everything she did. Dedicated to a fault some said. Persistent and focused, she said. They’d never understand her and she didn’t care. her need to be accurate, efficient and top of the class was crucial to her survival. Every grade, every test, every paper, it was all or nothing. And she always gave all.

destroy

The ire in his words could destroy an entire universe. One flick of his tongue and a strip tore off my back. Every word biting into my flesh, tearing away chunks of muscle, of heart, of soul, until nothing remains but a broken shell, torn to shreds.

sound

The sound of your voice, seeps into my veins. I’m wrapped in it’s warm embrace, hiding from the world where no one will ever find me, lost in lullaby I never want to end.

choose

I choose, from this moment forward, to live for me. Not for you. Not the mother that held me to her chest and gave me life and breath and love. Not for you, the asshole commanding the house from his recliner, barely able to see over the ever-increasing hump of your belly.

sweep

The sweep of your tongue ignites every nerve in my body. My fingertips pulse with the urge to touch you, my mouth salivates at the thought of tasting your tongue, my thighs twitch with the desire to wrap themselves around you.

speech

His speech droned on, echoing against the gym walls, bouncing off the eardrums of the half-asleep children. The vibrations pinged off each other until it was all white noise and nothing was heard but a steady thrum that lulled them into the perfect semi-coma. Just a few more minutes and he’d have everything in place.

end

This is the end. I knew it would come one day. I’ve heard it playing in the background of my mind for so long now, I’m almost numb to the implications. Jim Morrison drones on on to his friend about it being the end, and I know exactly how he feels.

cry

I close my eyes, fighting the urge to cry. But I can’t. I can’t let them win. I can’t let them have the satisfaction of seeing a single tear ripple across the brim of eye. They’re so unworthy of my tears, but that doesn’t stop the pain from strangling the breath in my chest.

politician

The politician droned on and laid on another layer of lies so slick they slipped like oil through our fingers and hair and into our ears so deftly we hardly felt the slippery devils as they slid right into our brains.

promise

I promise I will always be there. I promise I will always love you. I promise I will never betray you. So many promises. So many words shattered like glass on the kitchen floor, swept up with bloody palms and washed with salty tears.

must

I must do this. If it kills me. I must. There’s no way around it at this point. I’ve weighted my options. I’ve seen both sides of the coin. I’ve taken into account the long lists of pros and cons and what-have-yous and it’s done. There really is no choice. Once you’ve examined all the choices until the possibilities are endless, you’re really only left with one choice. And that’s what I must do.

silk

The feel of his hands running down the smooth silk of her chemise sent shivers down her spine. Lavendar wafted through the air, mixing with the spice of his cologne. His tongue ran a soft trail across her neck igniting a flame deep inside her.

check

Check your name, check the face, check the place, check the time, check your mind, check your will, check with me, check for you, check into, check around, check your love, check your hate, check the one with which you mate, check on it, check within,
