I’m just walking in circles to find my way home.

Stories

  1. Life is..

    Life is… What’s left when the sun goes down. A wrecking ball, waiting to drop. A puzzle with missing pieces.

  2. Rain

    Looking out the rain-patterned window, the sunset blurs and drips down the pane. The colors blend and weave together. Soon I’ll open the door and step out, letting it slam behind me, letting the cold pour down my face, making my butterfly colors ...

  3. Meaning

    We face adversity. Some at every step. Some in finding a way to take those steps. But when things are hardest, we need to remember who we are. Why we started. This is the meaning for our existence.

  4. Smirk

    You know? It’s not a two way street. Because as much as you will lower yourself by looking down at me and smirking, refusing to get the work done, I’ll do better. I’ll be stronger. We’re not equals. I do the work required of m...

  5. Edge

    I watch as it tumbles through the air, glinting in the twilight. Time slows down. One side appears, then the next. Reminiscent of all the sides of this situation coming to light in the way they did. Sad that lives hang in the balance, here. If only we...

  6. Hollow

    Time has passed. Not a lot, but enough. I no longer cry at night, at least not while awake. I’m not broken-not yet. But I’m not whole either. Maybe this has all been a lesson. Maybe I expected myself to learn too quickly. But that’s ...

  7. Time Spent Without

    I’m sitting here, waiting, trying to grasp I don’t know what’s the worse hand to be dealt, you see- to be told you won’t be here at all, and face That Crushing Despair or to never know and to have that slice of hope every time I...

  8. Moment of Silence

  9. The truth.

    You know what? I think I love you. Do you know how much that scares me?

  10. Here's the thing.

    Here’s the thing: I’ve been waiting. For the other foot to fall For the fatal flaw to appear For the catch. Nobody I’ve ever known has been like you. Powerful, yet gentle. Opinionated, yet willing to listen. Focused on the details, ye...

  11. Missing You

    I’m missing you. It’s ridiculous, I know. 3 hours gone, and the clouds have rolled in. I’m not possessive, (I hope), but you’ll forgive me my desolation. You see, I like being whole, complete. Without you, I am cut in half. A f...

  12. I Remember

    I remember you, that first time, walking onto the stage. Your confidence and presence astounded me. You used our emotions against us, took us on a roller-coaster ride. I wasn’t the type to visit an amusement park- But all the same, you swept me a...

  13. You.

    They say that when you stand at the edge of a cliff, you feel no fear of the cliff itself, but of the dark and gaping chasm which opens before you. But when you showed me my world from the highest viewpoint, I knew then that I was no longer afraid of f...

  14. Summer Day

    Younglings around the tree played and laughed, and the world whispered its secrets to my heart-wood, as the tree grew.

  15. Power

    He stood in the street, quivering with rage, forgotten papers in his hands. They stood around him, drawn to this spot by the same phenomenon as he, by the music and the anger. Pens, phones, keys, leashes for pets dangled limply from their fingertips as...

  16. Dancer

    There are dreams here Hidden behind the pretty mask I wear You wish I were one-dimensional So it would be safe to judge me I will stand here And guard your precious secrets Until I can stand no more And darkness brings me to my knees Do not mock me For...

  17. Musing

    I dream of being Great, but all I am is Me.

  18. Conversations With Someone Who Keeps You Going

    I, alone. You know what you are to me? A grizzly bear, watching salmon, Choosing which to hunt. Me, here. You know what you remind me of? A leader, a star. You’ll make it one day. Keep working. Myself. You know who you are? Find out. Learn, Serve...

  19. Page 14-The Forest.

    Your stop at the forest’s edge to give your eyes time to adjust to the gloom. You hear voices behind you, yelling “Stop! Thief!” It must be those knights, but you haven’t stolen anything. Or have you? You look at the equipment y...

  20. What's on the Flip Side of This Coin?

    She was staring back at me, seemingly transfixed, an illusion created by the barrier between us. Perfect oval eyes, with just the right amount of grey mixed into their blue. Flawless skin, so far from my own freckle-studded face. A ballerina’s bo...

  21. I Eat Meat.

    And I haven’t really questioned that. Don’t get me wrong- I like meat. I knew that animals have to die in order for me to eat meat. And I didn’t think twice. Not until recently. Whatever I am, I am not yet a vegetarian. I eat meat jus...

  22. A Meeting

    I met myself today, and she was not who I expected. She was a thinker, a dreamer, a doer. She could dance in the rain with a smile on her face. If you gave her an idea, she would run with it. She had talents-not the least of which was to listen. She wa...

  23. Bitter

    You know, I was hoping until the moment his mouth formed her name. Even though I had told myself I wouldn’t-my secret is that I did. The secret I hid from myself was that I did. I waited, and dreamed, and wished and waited. Hoped beyond hope. He ...

  24. Pondering...

    If I’m an I and you’re an I, and we all think the same- if it’s an I for an I or an Eye for an Eye, then aren’t I to blame?

  25. Waiting

    Corporate America Eternal Tomorrow Gather Here, Above! the Stars Waiting.

  26. It.

    “Stop. You’re doing that all wrong.” Who was talking? I was at home, alone, doing my homework. Just another Tuesday night. Whatever. I turned back to the calculator app embedded in my cellphone. In any case, there was no way I was go...

  27. Stereotype Me

    Stereotype me Nothing fought for, worth Nothing Wingless Butterfly

  28. Depression

    Slices like Rivers Underlying current tells Teardrops of blood fall.

  29. Haunt

    Whisper in the wind Trapped between a synonym And a dark, cold place

  30. There is no Silence in the Forest

    There is no silence in the forest Always subtle sounds. A perfect moment brings peace It is as if the trees sigh. Sun glistens off these trees Soft wind whispers Heartbeats. Breath of air. Frozen in time I am alive. There is no silence in the forest I ...
