  1. The distilled water flowed from the tap freely. The girl had never seen it before. It was her first day outside the confines of Africa. She rejoiced what we found natural. She celebrated what we looked over. She brought a new meaning to “loving the little things.” The boy saw her rejoicing. He fell in love with her immediately.

  2. I am so far removed from what all that I allowed to dominate my life once.
    I watch the pendulum swing back and forth. Choices. These things I sought.
    Hypnotized in time. It’s a slide show. It’s deja vu.

    If all that I am is evaporating, that must be why I feel like I am suffocating. Distilled into an abstract form; too many nebulous ideals of what a life should be.

  3. “I distilled the case notes into the …” Carrie began explaining her process.
    “You distilled?” Mark stopped her.
    “Yes, distilled.” She hiked an eyebrow at him. “You do know what distilled means, don’t you?”

    “Distilled means to purify, yes. It also means to extract the most important meaning from something.”

  4. I would challenge you, dear,
    to remove your old mask
    but with war in the air
    it’s too much to ask.
    Can you see through the shield
    you wear with such pride?
    Is your goal to become
    or simply to hide?
    These questions, I fear,
    are the reason my eyes
    have accustomed to watching
    and picking out lies.
    But please, worry not.
    I’ll always forgive,
    for your heart knows the truth
    and with that you must live.

  5. I took everything about you, your beauty, your charm, your flaws, your annoying way of ingoring when I’m mad at you. I distilled everything about you and concluded what i believe you are; nothing but the pure perfection of an imperfect human being.

  6. I am impure water.
    But you come at me with your fire
    Making me breathe
    And I wish that you could be water like me,
    Because I know that if you were
    It would make more sense for me to be drowning in you

  7. I sat like a fish in a vase, gulping
    gulping down the long-time standing water
    that slips around my skin, eluding
    eluding the time when I was older

  8. I looked at the perfectly crafted barrel, the circumference looking as if it had been drawn out with a protractor. I could hear the bubbles of the yeast in the background, turning all that precious sugar into the nectar the town craved for so badly.

    I could hear the footsteps of the mayor pounding away on my floor boards upstairs.

    I only had a few hours to get this batch distilled.

  10. My world shook. How could this be? What sort of revelation was this? I knew of some sort that the events had a probable chance of occurring but this was too much. I felt sick to my stomach. If she knew, how could she betray me? She was always the intuitive one.

  11. He looked at the mixture, pondering weather or not he could use it. His intention had been to make it beautifully purple, but now it looked more like mushy green with slimy brown chunks swimming in it. May if he would distill it? The smell was still quite right, he was sure that the women keen on spraying toxic on their bodies would buy it, at least if it was sold in a designer bottle.

  12. Don’t think. Just write.

  15. He drank from the glass. Scotch distilled seven times, slightly stirred with some cold water. Tie loose, shoes off, jazz lightly playing in the background. This was relaxation at its finest.

  16. The true meaning of what she said at the time was distilled by the atmosphere in which she said, by the people that surrounded us, by my carefree, drunken mood. If I had known that she was seriously, which, looking back, her look said she was, then everything would be different.

  17. It was double distilled. Smooth, golden, smoky. Expensive. Hell, maybe it was triple distilled. That wouldn’t make a difference. She still didn’t like whiskey.

  18. This water is distilled. It is clean, clear, and ready to drink. The sun shines through it leaving rainbows on the wall. Colorful rainbows, prisms of pure light wallpaper the room. Now I’m thirsty. I need more coffee, made with distilled water for fucking freshness.

  20. “Distilled to its very essence, the soul is simply a collection of granules determined by the person the soul belonged to.” The professor rattled a stoppered test tube, and the opalescent crystals within threw sunlight around the whole classroom.

  21. The water was tasteless, as if it had been distilled. She screwed up her face in a grimace. “Where’s the real water?” she demanded. “Not this crap in bottles. Not this stuff in faucets. Where’s the real stuff gone?”

    By mrsmig on 10.02.2013

  22. To me, distilled means to separate the good from the bad. Just like in life, we have to focus on the good things and pull that away from all the bad things. Because in every storm, there are benefits. A silver lining in the clouds. But the sun is right behind the cloud. Still shining. Its not gone, just hiding.

  24. “Why is it just beer?” he asked. “Why haven’t we ever, say, tried to make whiskey?”

    She smiled. “There have been attempts. But to do something distilled… all I know from the histories is that it was more trouble than it was worth. Things became… too concentrated.”

    “But it’s just whiskey.”

    She stared out the window. Near the horizon, she could just see the blackened edge of where it began. “That’s why they thought too.”

  27. I am thinking of water. Cool refreshing water. It comes in a jug and you buy it at the store. I use it for labs in science. It has a blue label on the jug. You can get it at any grocery store. I would not drink distilled water.

    By Stacy Ambrose on 10.02.2013

  28. distilled water, what’s the point of it. I don’t really taste any difference. I remember using distilled water for a science project and I asked why coulden’t just use tap water. I still never got that answer.

  29. figures:

    the only other timeline
    where we can
    recreate whatever we had

    is the one where you
    found someone else
    to love you first.

  30. Distilled, i wrote about it yesterday before i signed up and when i was writing about it the timer was not working. I think the timer was getting distilled. I heard the distilling water is not a very long process to do but i guess distilling time is.

  31. She brings beauty to her tragedy, the indignities that haunt the darkest sickness, and finally the vomit which brings no relief – her vomit, distilled to Valpolicella, and we the distant, separate and silly, we drink it with our lamb and mint sauce, and spew platitudes from our greasy lips and beat our breasts, “But oh the beauty she brings to her tragedy!”

  32. hard liquor. bourbon. that must be the kentucky girl in me coming thru. i remember the smell of the distilled spirits on my mother’s breath as she’d lean on me and hug me. she’d be asking me if i loved her. she wanted reassurance. i just wanted to get away from her and her bourbon breath.
