Swell

Well isn't this just swell. A nice little spot, and some time to sit and think. Ahh... the smell of rain is in the air and everything has a hint of gray. Some people would want their perfect day to be 80 degrees and sunny but I disagree. 60 and rainy is perfect for me.

Ahead


“After you.”

“No, after you.”

“Oh please, do go first.”

“Age before beauty.”

“But really, you go ahead.”

At this rate, they’ll never get through the door.

Responsibility

Responsibility is the one thing that is keeping me together. I’m involved in so many things right now… so many people are counting on me. I fear letting anyone down, so I must keep on top of everything and I have to get everything done. Between class, work, and extra-curriculars, I have to make it through. It’s not even Friday yet of the spring semester and I’m already beginning to loose my mind.

Yeah

I called her and knew.
She didn't have to be blunt,
all we said was yeah.

Musical

Life is a musical. Sitting on the subway, I sway to the beat. I hear the clicking and clacking of the wheels, the conversations are the lyrics.

Real

Real is fake. Nothing is real. Everything is as we imagine it. Real lives inside our own heads, and your version of real is quite different from my real. It’s quite the conundrum.

Visit


*Knock knock knock*

My heart dropped into my chest.

“Come on Miss, I know you’re in there.”

I wanted to run and hide, but I couldn’t. As a little hand grasped onto my finger, I took a deep breath and opened up the door. This was the visit that would take me away to freedom. Away from Him and the only life I had grown to know. I was terrified, but for the little voice that asked, “Mommy, why are you crying?” I knew I had to go with them, get my little one to a better life.

Sound


Tick-Tock.
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
“I always spell Vagina wrong, I want to spell it ‘V-I’ instead of ‘V-A’”
“It’s time to trust my instincts…”
Click-THUD.

Master


I sat there, staring at him. I nudged his foot, and I called out to him.

“Master! Master!”

But he didn’t budge. 15 years, and he was the first to go.

I sat there that night.

Howling at the moon.

Politician

He was a politician. Raised up on a pedestal that we put him on. We chose him to stand there above us. But he is not above the same faults that is found in us.

Must

Must I? Must I deal with all this technology failing me? Can’t I just run away, leave it all behind… live a life where it’s just me and my thoughts, and the people I come into direct contact with? I don’t want to do this anymore.

Napping on the Floor

I curl up in sinking sunlight.

Lord


OH LOORDIE LOU.

I can't believe this has happened... again! Why can't people just live in the moment and take the chance on life? All I want is to be happy... doesn't he want to be happy? Why can't we be happy together? Lord help me convince him...

Placed

I stare out into the darkness as the bright lights blind me. My ears go deaf from the monstrous applause that is coming from below. All I can hear is the beat of my heart. I am standing on top, and it was my best that placed me here.
