shaken

He was shaken. Completely shaken. The news of the car crash left him feeling as if his entire core, his entire soul, was sucked out of him. How can you recover from that?

knee

You don’t realize how dependent you are until something you need gets taken away from you. How much you rely on this one little thing. With an injured knee, there is not much constant in your life.

drifting

Drifting
side to side,
watching as all worlds collide.
Drafting
your every shot,
your every move,
your every thought.
Deciding
where you stand
on this earth we all obsess over.

epic

Reading the epic was like reading my fortune–a fortune that will determine my next move. I am all out of ideas, so there is just one thing left to do.

function

We cannot function without each other. It’s a sad realization that is difficult to come by, and even more difficult to completely understand. Just like a function cannot be continuous unless all the points are where they should be; we, as humans, cannot function unless everyone is where they should be, playing the role they were assigned.

bland

The bland food was not much, but it was all I could afford. After all, beggars can’t be choosers. I can live with some boring meals; in the long run, I’ll be rewarded. But bland as it might be, it is healthy.

icicle

Icicles dropping,
Dripping,
Drowning out the silence
With the sound of their
Crashing,
Crushing,
Crippling my hopes.

positively

Positively. That’s what I thought I was. I guess no one can ever be completely positive of one thing. Even when you think you’re happy, there’s a sliver of doubt hiding in the back of your mind, prepared to jump out at you any second. Positively. Uf, what is positve anyways?

downpour

We stood in the downpour, waiting for the bus. I wasn’t sure where we would end up, but I just knew I had to leave. I just knew it. There is no way I could stay in this little town much longer.

scout

“We’ll have to scout the area,” he said. “But sir, we already checked everywhere. No one gone saw her.” “Keep looking. No one has been lost under my watch,” he replied, “and I’m not going to change that today”.

evidence

You don’t need evidence to know the truth. Sometimes you just know. This isn’t the most solid method, but you’ll know when you know. The evidence is just a little extra.

concern

She was worried about flooding, but to me the water was no concern. It’s just water, after all. If we were meant to drown, we will. Simple as that.
Anyways, I sort of like the water. It’s calming to hear the tap, tap, tap, as the drops hit the window. These are the memories I live for.

insect

I can’t write about this word… I just read Metamorphosis by Kafka. The protagonist, Gregor, wakes up one morning completely transformed into a bug. He’s trapped by his physical being, but also by his parasite-like parents who he has worked so hard to pay off their debt.

offer

“I’d love to go,” he said calmly, “if the offer sill stands.”
“Of course, babe, you’re always welcome.” Although her words were sincere, her voice was very anxious.
“I’m just worried about what the killer might think.”

sinking

And there it was, sinking– sinking slowly to the bottom, out of reach, out of sight. (use of a resumptive modifier, practice for ap lit)

missed

I guess I just missed how it used to be. Things are probably not going to be the same, and he’ll always be an ass to me. I miss the times when I was optimistic.

thread

Holding on by a thread, I do the best i can.

near

I’m not close to being alive. I’m not dead either. Not yet, at least. There must be a word for that space between life and the afterlife. Will I ever be alive again? I’m too much near death.

discovery

And what a discovery it was. Not only was he able to do the work he loved, he was becoming famous on his findings. And they said he couldn’t be an archeologist.

answers

Answers are something every kid needs. You’re expected to know all the right ones. Well I’m here, 6 days left, with more than half the answers needed. No one knows what the answer will be.

driving

Driving isn’t so bad. On a warm summer night, on country roads, I can really connect with myself again. The stereo is blasting and I’ve never felt more relaxed.

brick

It felt like a brick was tied around my ankle.

I was drowning slowly.

Sometimes you don’t realize how much pressure you’re in until it all comes down on you.

I just needed someone to untie that brick…

canvas

That’s the last thing he said to me. “Watch the canvas”. His apartment was filled with his art work, but he never had the guts to show it somewhere. That’s the thing with artists, they never think their art is good enough to be shown.

lock

It was an accident, I swear.
No one believed me.
I never meant for it to end this way.
Still no sympathy.
I wish I could take it all back.
They’re locking me up for good.

manager

Manager? Someone who manages. If you can go through hell and manage to come out smiling, you’re a pretty good manager. If you can manage to finish your work on time and not procrastinate, that’s another quality of a good manager.

wings

If I had wings, I could fly away. Flying symbolizes freedom and I’m trapped on this earth. I wouldn’t be trapped any more if I had wings.

step

Step one. Time to let go. Just need to step. Step away from it all, step into a new life. Steps toward the person you want to become, step away from the anger. In just a few steps we’ll be there. Step it up until you’re there.

muse

My muse is sadness. Always has been. From misery comes the best works. There are thousands of love songs, but it’s the break up songs that mean the most. When the heart is in its deepest sadness is where the best work comes from. This is why I don’t mind being sad.

band

The band was better than I expected. Separately, they’re just a bunch of misfits. But boy oh boy, there is something about drummers that drives every girl crazy.

thunder

I’m usually not easily startled, but tonight my nerves were extra touchy. The thunder was louder than I expected, and my hand just slipped on the throttle. I’m just lucky the only thing I ran into was the tree; my little accident could have hurt someone else.
