hailstorm

Why was it storming? Were you kidding?

They just wanted to get home.

Seriously, this was ridiculous.

Their phone binged.

“Careful out there. It’s pretty slippery.”

They slipped.

broke

Broken.

My laptop.

With my final essay.

Broken.

My friendship.

With the years of hugs and encouragement and laughs.

Broken.

Me.

Because everything is falling. And I can’t breathe.

Broken.

He didn’t know. He didn’t know.

How did it happen?

He didn’t know.

His best friend was crying, and he couldn’t do anything.

He didn’t know what happened.

“What happened?” he asked. “Tell me what’s going on. Let me help you. What’s going on?”

millions

Millions upon millions die every day, millions upon millions are born every day, and here we are, seated on our thrones of glass, the world below us, nothing above us but the clouds. We are stronger than we know, and yet we choose to die alone, choose to shut ourselves behind walls of self-hatred and doubt, choose to hide behind the backs of our golden glass thrones.

vines

The vines spread over all the old houses, but none of the new. The leaves cover and contrast the white sheet that the old houses were built with, while large brick or stone covers the new. These vines remind us of age, and a dying style of breed.

breakout

Breakout album, I think to myself. That’ll happen sure enough. Of course it will. I’ll be a success, I’ll be famous, I’ll be everything I’ve wanted to be since I learned to want. My family won’t be secretly ashamed of me. I won’t have to listen to my father stuttering over the phone to my grandparents when they ask about me. People won’t have to ask about me. My answers will lie across channels for all to see.

hydration

This is a bit ridiculous. It’s hot (it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses, aha sure sure) but I can’t drink enough water. I just keep gulping and gulping but nothing happens. It’s like I could fade into dust without it. My veins are popping up because I’m hot, up through my skin. They’re starting to hurt. They’re getting bigger. Spidery. Blue. Bigger. I growl.

tradition

Tell me about your traditions. Tell me how you run to things so illogical when in times of despair. Tell me how you fall deeper and deeper into the valley of ignorance, soaked in darkness that you can’t escape, can’t perceive. Must be comforting. Must be wonderful. Things I want but can’t bring myself to have.

cute

She looks at me from across the lunch room. I catch her eye, face heating up, and hide my face behind my hair. Through my periphery I watch her lean over to her friend, clad in a leather jacket and light wash jeans, and whisper one, heart-stopping word.
“Cute.”
I can’t stop smiling.

I catch her eye from across the room. Her hair is short and messy, cut just above her ears. A loose button-up shirt hugs her form, accompanied by a pair of skinny jeans. She smirks at me, just barely, and the girl besides her catches my eye with a knowing smile. She’s cute, I think. I hope she thinks the same about me.

iron

Iron is made out of something magical perhaps or is it something that isn’t magical at all? Maybe we are fooled by iron I say, I shout, I command, I yell into your face! So where is iron man lurking these days anyway?

tale

I listened to the exciting tale of mystery. A bit of action here, and some adventure there. With a hint of romance.

undone

I fixed my hair, for it had come undone while dancing with my friends. I hurried back and joined in again.

scooter

I rode my scooter down the big hill, pressing my heel on the back wheel to slow me down every once in a while.

elm

I quickly ran to the elm tree in my backyard, “She’ll never find me here.” I thought as I climbed higher and deeper towards the trunk. “Ready or not, here I come!” my sister exclaimed.

spoon

“Guys look! I balanced the spoon on my nose!” I exclaimed to my friends whom I was eating with. They just laughed.

hamburger

I don’t like hamburgers, I only like cheeseburgers. The cheese makes it all seem to stick together more and more flavorful.

abundant

Then dad came back from the field, “So, how much is there?” I asked. “Our wheat is abundant.” he smiled.

noticed

I noticed her hand was behind her back, “What ya got there?” I asked. “Nothing.” she replied walking backwards, away from me. I quickly grabbed her arm and pulled it out of her hand, “Really? You took my candy?” I asked raising an eyebrow.

Comedy makes me laugh. Some comedians I know are Brian Regan and Tim Hawkins.

solar

The solar eclipse was beautiful to see. But we had to look for it through a special lens or else the sun would damage our eyes.
