My eyes alight with excitement. Can’t resist the temptation. Slowly reaching, hoping, filled with eagerness and anticipation. So close – within reach. I can taste it. Almost there…

“Oh good, there’s one more!”, says the old woman as she snatches the last cookie. The one meant for me.

bedside

I sat that there watching you struggle. wincing. gasping. Closing my eyes, wishing this were a dream. What could be going on in your mind? Can you possibly think amidst the pain? I can’t. All I can do is sit here and watch you hurt.

skyline

What obstinate orange wall do you see? Is it only in the land of foxes? I am clawing towards your heart, hoping you will see the azure skyline near me.

direct

“Look at that!” said her sister. Pointing, she looked over at the garden. “That tree is looking directly at you.” She gasped, “Crikey.”

“Get out of the light! You will burn to a crisp.” She jumped back, cringing from the sun. “Crikey. What time is it?”

handlebars

She sat on the handlebars as they sped downhill, the wind in her hair and the smell of summer. It was reckless abandon. It was freedom she had never had.

rumble

The rumble of my stomach was so loud. I placed my hand over it and it growled again.

Roar.

I must be very hungry. The light outside the window was just breaking. Dawn. Another night gone by ruminating. Another empty stomach. Why is it always like this?

Oh man. I avoid this. Can’t even write about it. Nope. Uncomfortable. Need this time to run out. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid….. gah it’s awful.

western

A state of mind. We live with an eye towards the future. We live to behold the wonders of the world. It’s a state of mind.

proof

Show me. You could tell me, but I need proof. Seriously. Put it right in front of my face. I believe you. But I want to see it. Now. Not tomorrow. Here and now. Proof. THanks.

continued

The rest of the agenda was continued until the next meeting. She exhaled and thanked god. But that means she has to be ready again.

unanswered

I left it unanswered. What was I supposed to say? I live two lives; one here, one there. I’m two people and his time expired with person #1. Now, he’ll wait until I return. Unfortunately, I’ve dreamt about him since.

legion

They would never be able to find him. He was legion-trained. He had braved freezing nights, sweltering days, the worst sorts of weather and training imaginable to be here. This was where he would thrive.

exact

Correct answer. Without a margin of error. Exactly what I saying– agreement.

movies

There was a time when hollywood was glorious. Films had meanings and people went to them to be enlightened. Now we have films like 50 Shades of Grey. Yup.

pitch

The boy gripped onto his baseball bat tightly. A bead of sweat trickled down his temple, he swallowed. The pitcher studied the batter with a smirk. The runt looked too weak to hit a baseball. Slowly, he got ready for the pitch. 3… 2… 1…

oak

The word is still “oak” no matter how many times I click “go” on Oneword.com. Today. It’s the word for today. Ah. Well, I certainly have “monday” head.

“It has an oak stain.” I picture a tree on my credenza.

transform

It’s a never ending cycle of transformation
drab, colors
to brilliant life
and then a dazzling white
which is the butterfly
the chrysalis
and the caterpillar?

Looking at it, I just see a bowl of flour with eggs, salt, chocolate chips, and sugar.

sympathy

I bought a card
to say how much I’m sorry
that you’ve lost yourself, and your heart
is ground to a pulp
and you can’t think without hurting but your brain
is a runaway train, barrelling towards a black whole.
I’m sorry
that your world is not as light
and that the sun mocks you
I’m sorry
Here’s a card
It may just make it better.

moonshine

They say it is like dreaming.
the moonshine
A bottle night that makes the stars
appear as Van Gogh
must of seen them
In swirls and halos
Or perhaps
It will make each person
into an Adonis
Or the drinker
nothing more than Summer’s Fool
Sloppy behind the hay stacks

viewpoint

See it? Over there! Yes, that’s it! What does it mean?! I think… well, you know…um. No, I don’t know.

difficult

To say that life is difficult is the understatement of the century. She believed, no she knew, that difficulty was just a part of being human. Why did it have to be so hard?

He was always difficult to deal with. Difficult to live with, difficult to work with and definitely difficult to love. That was how he worked.

metro

You don’t hear much of the metro
in this city
You hear of honking horns
and gutsy pedestrians
and overcrowded parking garages
Is that a cloud
or the smoke wafting across the sunlight?

radius

The radius of a circle is
nothing more than a bridge
halfway
Thereis little you can do
from the center
but look at the long fall
suspended between
a hard ground
and a blue sky
The radius
gives you just enough
to hope at the other side
to decide
that you understand the distance
and perhaps
what is waiting
is not so different after all
