while it was still cool and kept its fresh
you said everyone's dreams were caught

that silvery thread that floats on the wind and
sticks to your face.
i didn't believe you, but
i could see in your eyes
that you were going to be the one to find those dreams.
you were going to
[be the one to]
sail away one misty morning in a boat
just because you wanted to.
just because the world wanted to

I dont want to read your writing.
It isnt a colourful drawing
With a story told in one glance.
There are words here to decipher,
And reading them once might not be enough.
If I cant see into your soul in one glance
Maybe your soul isnt worth being seen.
So Ill go my merry way
And type out a comment to that generic Naruto fanpic
And never wonder what precious insight
Your words have to offer.
The Forest Isn't DarkShe's flighty they'll all whisper about her up until the day she dies.The Forest Isn't Dark4 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
She talks to much about nothing relevant and wears her skirts to short.
They'll snicker. "She looks like a whore."
But she laughs and doesn't care.
Why's she so stupid?
She's not really stupid though. She's just not afraid to ask about things she genuinely doesn't understand. She's curious and that's ok.
Romance makes her uncomfortable though, but only if it's serious and heavy on the heart. Makes her feel awkward, as if her tongue is tied and she's cornered without the voice to s

Growing Up With DesireIt's madness really. Something short of my eighteenth birthday with a side of pumpkin ice cream because it's fall and the leaves have begun to hug the ground. Chill in the autumn air that clashes with my summer dress that flies up if I spin too fast. My mother says I shouldn't do that, I'm not a kid no more. I have to sit in a chair with my legs crossed like a lady, hands placed tenderly in my lap.Growing Up With Desire4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I can't be a lady. I want to run, to play. Jump down hills while laughing at the way my best friend trips over her own two feet because she's clumsy and carefree. I want to feel spring come back into the air. I want to walk through the woods with all it's shelter from the heat of the afternoon, the way the light falls in patches that does away with the gloom. Staring at maple leaves and husky oaks that tower over the nearby blueberry bushes.
