speech

Thoughts race through my head.
I have so much to say.

But nothing comes out.
I am immobile at the worst possible moment.
I need to speak..
have to say something..

But the words
never
come.

soil

Oh, Tennessee. You’ve been good to me.
And I’ve come to believe, you’re where I wanna be.
You may not be what everybody needs.

It’s been ten years now and I’m rooted in your soil,
I am rooted in your soil.

-Mindy Smith

shows

She is positively glowing. Her smile radiates.
Her heart beams.

She must be in love..

It certainly shows.

keen

“We need to split up.”
“What? Are you retarded?”
I wasn’t too keen on walking around this abandoned mineshaft by myself.
Absolutely not. I was not going to be the first idiot to fall and break my ankle or get raped by some disfigured fucking zombie. Fuck that.

racket

She heard the moans leaking through her apartment wall.
She thought she’d be annoyed.
The heavy breathing,
the surprised gasps, the fulfilled sighs.

But it just made her
that
much
hotter.

backspace

Take a step out into the abyss.
Backspace through reality.

Fade in. Fade out.
OUt of consciousness.
Out out being.

Project the crystals from a new light.
And see something..
beautiful.

disregard

There’s a loud humming.
Ignore the daily crackle of conformity.
Static split-screen.
All we do is talk.
Disregard.

separate

I’m not sure why more marriages don’t end in simple separation. That delicate balance has very obviously ruptured. Why are you still going at it? Trying is simply making things worse. It’s time to go your separate ways and move on.

Just be happy.

flip

“Ugh! You can’t do anything right!”
My step mother shoves me over.
“Look at this! It’s still dirty!”
She looks at me with disdain.
“Do it right this time.”
Suddenly, in lieu of the forced numbness I usually feel, anger flows through me, building up the pressure in my chest until I look up her and say with an even voice,
“Fuck off, Karen.”
I flip her a finger she shouldn’t forget and walk off.

catcher

I never fully understood the dream catcher.
I mean I understood that they were made to catch all your bad dreams.
But I never understood why people felt the need to tattoo themselves with it or anything. I mean, what higher purpose could it have to you to where you’d want it on your body?
I suppose it makes sense.
Catch your bad dreams, so only the good dreams are left.
Hm.

trunk

I stuffed as many boxes into my trunk as I could.
This was it.
I was never going to come back.
Not ever.
This was my chance.

To get away,
To run away,
From all my nightmares.

This was it.

torch

I was in the dark.
An abyss.
My breathing was shallow, like there wasn’t enough air left.
Where was I?
The air is thin..
I can’t breathe..
I’m falling, falling..

Yet in the distance, a light.
It got closer, closer, and I couldn’t speak.
He was here..
My love.. with the light.

lantern

There was something not eerie at all about the fact that this tiny lantern was my only source of light in a total abyss of darkness.

It was so silent..
So silent I could hear the incessant ringing in my ears..
But then it went away, slowly but surely.

And the light-
It was fading..
It was fading and all that was left was darkness.

I swam in complete serenity as darkness and silence enveloped me.
All I had now were my thoughts,

and I was free.

generator

“Quick!”
“Turn it off!”
“What? Where is it?!”

There’s not enough time.

“I can’t find it!”
“Hurry!!”

There’s not enough time.

“We don’t have long!”
“I can’t see it!”
“Wh–”

There’s never enough time.

crescent

I was mesmerized
by the way his hands moved.
The muscles in his hands
contracting and constricting
as they worked through the grease and grime.
He was manipulating this machine with such ease..
“Hand me that crescent wrench.”
I was hypnotized.

medical

I thought I could do it.
It was my dream..
To drive around in that emergency truck,
saving lives.

But it wasn’t as heroic as all that..

People died..
And there was little I could do to stop it..
It was my nightmare..

curse

“I defy you stars!”
Those four words… They send shivers through me.
The fact that someone could curse something as wonderful and timely as the cosmos…
The entire cosmos…
Chills.

I love that quote.

flirt

It’s been happening more and more.
It may just be because I’m hanging out with cooler people,
people who actually have interesting thoughts in their heads.

But I just accept the compliments and smile.
No reciprocation.

I don’t feel as flattered as I used to..
Perhaps it’s because the only boy whose flirting I care about..
is the one who’s mine.

I knew I was pushing it-
pulling the string that unraveled everything.

I walked across that thin line
that separated sanity
from insanity.

“Flirting with disaster.”
That’s how I liked it.

carnival

I walked through the halls, surveying the daily situation.
Girls who think they’re women squawk at each other from hundreds of feet away.
Boys who think they’re men pick on each other.
I don’t know how this behavior still amazes me.
It’s like a carnival.
An
every
day
carnival.

pony

Wandering, wandering.
Thinking about the moon,
how the sun is the only thing that illuminates it..

It rays flutter down upon me,
I look up.
I it’s light, I see a small, white creature.

It stole my breath and I whispered to it..
“Majestic…”

butterfly

I sat myself in the grass, feeling it beneath my knees.
It lifted me,
I was suspended.

The air light and breezy, I floated.
A butterfly.
I watched it intently as it floated past,
green, yellow, blue,
swimming across my vision.

orbit

I’m lost.
Floating aimlessly-
my equilibrium nonexistent.

There is no air.
Just a cold, unchanging feeling.

All my demons, they follow me,
orbiting me in a perfect, chaotic balance.

epic

“Um, yeah. I’m going to need you to lock the door after you come inside for once.”
“You came in the house after me, Linda. It was clearly you who left it unlocked.”
“Are you arguing with me?”
“What?”
“That’s what I thought.”
“You know what, Linda?”
“What?”
“Fuck you, you fucking kike.”

odds

It always seemed like,
no matter what I did,
I was at odds.

With my work,
my relationships,
my life.

I felt the unstable ground beneath me slipping,
more and more.
I knew soon I’d fall
down,
down
into the rabbit hole.

Forever.

collar

I grabbed you by your collar
and forced your lips to mine.

It had no sexual tension in it.
It was purely romantic.
Melt.

You pulled on the strings of my heart.
And I want you to hold them forever.

plans

I laid out the shiny, reflective knife before me.
Along with the other seven sharp trinkets I had.

Planning was good.
Planning soothed me.
Planning prepared me for the delicious gore that was to come.

A giggle ran through me as I heard him begin to stir from his slumber of opiates.

liberty

“Did you hear about this SOPA thing?”

“You mean the thing that’s going to breach our unalienable rights and make it impossible to share on the internet? That thing?”

“…Yeah..”

“Yep, heard about it.”

runway

I walked. They looked.
My heart jump-started,
but I maintained composure.

They needed me to seem effortless.
If I didn’t, I might fall.
From grace.

And then
everything
would
collapse.

bellow

“KARSEEENNNN!” I hear downstairs.
My pulse immediately quickens, knowing something is wrong.

My feet are up before my mind is as I go racing down the stairs.
I reach my mother’s room to see her laying in her bed.

“Will you get me a pickle?” she asks sheepishly.
