EnoughYou are enough.
There are some of you I don't know very well, some I know very well and even some that I don't know at all. No matter how well I know you, I know one thing about you.
You are enough.
You. Perfect. Wonderful, beautiful you. You were created to be exactly the way you are because the way you are is the way that you need to be at this point in your life.
No one else in this world will ever say the things you say, in the way that you say them. No one else will do the things you do, in the way that you do them.
You are smart enough.
You are strong enough.
You are beautiful enough.
You are kind enough.
You are irreplaceable.
You do enough.
Everything you do, everything you are, is perfect for you.
Yes, there will be things that didn't go so well at first. But remember you are enough. Through the hard times, through the easy times, you are enough.
You are enough.

"Ballet is more than dancing,
Grace," the en pointe trainer balanced
on one foot and named every bone
supporting her weight.
Grace spins one
circle on the hardwood floor:
her eyes land on the barre mirror.
She doesn't see the atrophied bone
ribs through pink gauze,
but only imagines herself as beautiful.
Weeks of anorexic binging display the remains

One more skin-and-bone
cygnet remained an ugly duckling
as the starved light of dawn danced across the sky

The empty theater seats fill up
while en pointe sylphs
count their ribs backstage

where grace fluttered,

“Jotunheim?” Thor repeated. “Why would they go there?”
Loki gave a slight shrug. “Undoubtedly they did not intend to. You said Sif attacked him before he could set down the last stone. Having to make such a hurried escape and being rather distracted, he set down the wrong stone.” He glanced from the “Jotunheim” stone in his hand to the “Midgard” stone Thor held. “They look similar enough.”
Again Thor glanced down to the stone in his hand as he wondered what exactly he should now do. The obvious answer was to go to Jotunheim, but it would take at least a few days before all the necessary preparations could be made – not counting the overall danger of even going to Jotunheim. With the Bifrost gone, dark energy was the only way to travel between realms, and there were only a select few who could use such magic – a select few that included Loki.

from his engine, winds careening
along windows cracked, and the
copious chirps of an April bird.
"Is it music?" He wonders - that

ostinato engine to the stringing
of windly breezes - and the singing,
oh how the singer sings her sun-dust
melody, like angels from tree-lined
shadows on a horizon of blazing light.

"Let's see here, who's next?" Jiraiya scanned through the room and stopped at you. "Hey, it's your turn to play.” He smiled wide at you and waves you over to him. “I really hope you get someone good.” He laughed perversely.
Now in the center of the room, you prepared to draw your item. Before you even have a chance, you saw Lee running towards you. He barely stopped before the two of you collided. “Be careful Lee, you almost hit me.”
“I am sorry, but I got here late, and did not have time to give Jiraiya my item. If I put it in there now everyone will see it. So, you will just have to pick me now.” He smiled wide and gave you a thumbs up. “It is the only way.”
“I'm not so sure it's the only way, but it does make sense.” Jiraiya stroked his chin and shrugged. “So I suppose if there are no objections, you and Lee will go to the closet next.
Lee looked at you with pleading eyes. “Okay, sounds good to me.&

Day 2 - I Don't Like YouA little girl with a pointed nose and curly blonde hair marches up to you in her floral Easter dress. She holds her head high, puts her hands on her hips, and stares you down with green-blue eyes. In a squeaky voice of a soon-to-be dictator, she deadpans, "I don't like you."Day 2 - I Don't Like You1 year ago in Letters More Like This
Time passes and the little girl's voice evens out, her eyes lightening and hair darkening, and eventually she abandons Easter dresses for Prom dresses as she growsgrowsgrows. She meets people who make her heart flutter on more than one occasion, yet the story always ends the same: with her coming up to them, head held high, and saying, "I don't like you."
Of course the details change as her love changes. At times she's smiling sheepishly and keeping it light, others she's screaming with tears in her eyes. But always the last word in her fairytales is an unforgiving Fin. That is why she keeps others' hearts away from her - because a little girl with a pointed nose and her head held high causes more damage than one w
DecayOnce in a harvest moon, a wayward star falls from the sky, causing your vision goes sideways and the grayscale life you've led up to that point erupts into a shower of colors. You stagger to the bar on those nights, the always-empty dive off the road where car crash crosses mark unburied graves, and order a drink. No matter the spirit, it always tastes sweet on your lips, but not as sweet as the girl you always watch but never see in the corner of the bar. A beautiful disaster in a torn dress with glossy blue eyes, the type of girl you end up throwing yourself at, drunkenly stumble into her warm lips. They are a sweet mistake, and she is a sweet mistake, but you are feel too tired and feel too right in her arms to care. You waste away the night, and you are wasted the next day, drunk now from her beauty instead of cheap wine. For she is intoxicating, ravaging, and several times over you wish it to end, but then always your vision goes sideways and the world explodes into fireworks, andDecay1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
