She coiled the string tightly around her index finger. Though it was starting to throb and turn an alarming shade of pink, she needed to know that she was still there. After everything that had happened to make her feel invisible.

On the rock, the coil of ammonites printed. Little creatures from ages gone, leaving their ghosts behind. We were here. We lived. Remember us.

The snake coiled quickly as the dog approached it, it’s wet cold nose to the ground. The dog didn’t see it right away but once he caught the scent, he stopped in his tracks. For one tense moment, the snake looked at the dog and the dog looked right back. Then slowly, ever so slowly, the dog stepped back and trotted off. The snake waited until the dog was out of sight and slithered back into the tall grass.

She coils around him when asleep in bed. At least, she’s asleep. He stares up at the ceiling, counting all the parts of her that are constricting parts of him. One of her arms is thrown across his chest while the other is hooked around his elbow. One of her legs is stretches over his thighs and her foot hooks behind his knee. He wants to melt into her, to drift off to sleep in her embrace, but all he can think about is how he really needs to pee and can’t move without waking her.

The feeling of loneliness coiled around her heart like that of a snake’s tail, and she let out a small gasp before covering her mouth, tears burning her eyes the second she closed them tight. Why did her dreams have to suffer at the expense of someone else? It was anything but fair.
And then, rough fingers reached out and touched her exposed shoulder in the gentlest of ways. “Look at me. Please.” Simon’s voice was unusually tender, making Lillie wonder if she was talking to the same man as before—and then he carefully swung her around to face him. “I didn’t do what I did to hurt you, believe me…I did it because I knew if you signed that contract, I’d never see you again. I’m not ashamed to say I couldn’t have dealt with that.”
Precious seconds passed. His hands hesitantly fell to her waist, pulling their bodies closer together. And then, she kissed him. Firmly yet passionately. They haven’t looked back since.

coil in a loop
as the future, we look to the past
yesterday is the shadow of tomorrow
and the present is long gone
got to laugh
the snake eating its tail, ouroboros
never quite catch up to ourselves
always just a moment ahead.

She looked up longingly at Jaine, wishing she could reach out and coil those soft, amber locks around her fingers. Just feel the feel of her, smell the smell of her.

coil and weep
none of us deserves anything
i can’t deny i’ve been crying away most of my feelings
why the fuck am i always so sensitive?
my hands are cracking from over working
my insides are strong i’ve been breathing for
almost twenty one years —
i can’t grow tired yet
By stargirl URL on 05.22.2014

like why would you name something coil

Its metal. It looks like a spring. Hey you guess it. Its a coil. YAY!

The snake went into it’s little coiled form. It didn’t move from there. It preferred to say in that position until all signs of danger were gone. He wasn’t a very sociable snake. He liked being alone. He was alone. Alone snake. What a sad life.

A coil of wire lays under my bed, lonely, abandoned. Rust covers the shiny metal that once gleamed on it’s surface.

A coil of wire.
The snake coiled itself.
Smoke coiled towards the open door.
I don’t know, don’t ask me. ._.
By Leanne URL on 05.22.2014
There is a coil. I see a coil. A coil? Of what? A snake? Wire? I can’t really see in the gloomy dark night it is.

Coiling around the bed, was a snake.
Coiling around the pole, was a snake.
Coiling around the table, was a snake.
Coiling around the pencil, was a snake.
Coiling around the cupboard, was snake.
Coiling around the bag, was a snake.
Coiling around the shoe, was a snake.
Coiling around my head, was a snake.

I like to use big coil to stretch my arm like I’m doing exercising. I like to use two coils and put under my foot. And bounce it !
By Marcus on 05.22.2014
like a snake, wrapping around me, skin against skin. i watch you from a distance, i let you move freely. i don’t demand. i can feel something, but i don’t want to be too close. it hasn’t served me well in the past

My stomach, my brain, the chords in my heart, the strings of my voice, the are in a coil. The tighten, they tighten till it s suffocating. My voice no longer knows how to thrum. It forgets to dance, and no longer do they cry in surprise. They just sit, sit the day by, sit the night by, hoping for the one to until them. But now, they just wound around themselves in confusion, having lost their directions.

To shrivel up. Sort of like a spiral. Think of a really curly piece of hair, twirling around and around in little ringlets. Or think of a box spring mattress. Those springs are coiled, to give your mattress it’s buoyancy.

The tight coil of copper hummed with electrical charge. Twenty stories high, it was the largest electromagnet ever designed, a vital part of a security system that nobody hoped to ever need to use. What it was supposed to keep out of Station Alpha, no one ever wanted to see.

sandwiches and fingerprints
imagination coiling around silly memories
i want to erase everything and restart
and not be so bad at all of this.

What happens when the coiling stops? Do you slide off into an abyss of nothingness or do you go backwards up the coil and then down again or are you already so dizzy, so confused, so lost that it doesn’t even matter what happens at the end? The end probably doesn’t matter because you are already so lost and confused and dizzy, or maybe there isn’t even an end, maybe you you just go up and down and up and down or maybe only down into an abyss of nothingness. I can’t see anything, nor can I hear, nor can I taste or smell or touch. There is only fish.

the coil spring on the right passenger let go and the car became out of control as Rod tried his best to stop it, but at speeds in excess of 200 mph stopping the car without killing someone else would be very difficult.

A mortal coil. A dagger lies beside a clump of bane, of poison, of venom. How dare they draw their final breath before thee! You draw your own sword, embedded with the blood of your foes and all the soldiers that have fallen before your crown. With this, you shall end your own life. With this, you shall shuffle off this dreary burden of earth and stone, trapped in a body of blood and clay.

a knarled flesh
back around on itself
back where it began
except where it was
around it goes and stops
right above where is starts

heat coils in eren’s stomach as he sucks in a breath and tries not to smile too hard. it feels good, having levi watch him so intently, so he follows through with his resolve and slides his hand between his legs to squeeze his straining erection. he moans, soft and quiet, and tries to contain a chuckle when he hears levi’s breath hitch.
“corporal,” he murmurs, stroking himself up and down and making it very clear who he’s thinking of while he touches himself.
