The cold kept us together beyond that, the grad(more)
"You have to season everything before you cook and you have to season as you add more ingredients," I told her  as she looked at me with half interest. Elle and I had been dating for about 6 months after a a series of casual hook up ignited by our(more)

A hot, yellow swarm of light stings the earth and it swells,

Smooth, dark skin breaks out in emerald blisters that fester and teem,

Infected lesions hatch feathered serpents that writhe across the planet like a cold green flame, giving birth, eating their own young,(more)
do you remember December?
when you first took my heart. it was a cold night,
New Year's Eve to be exact.
You held me in your arms,
making false promises of never letting go.

It was a quiet midsummer's day, about three in the afternoon. The humid haze was oppressive, coating the entire town with a contented languor, and Julie was abso-friggin'-lutely going to take advantage of the lack of school to just sit back, relax, and not worry about anything at all.(more)

So imagine this: it’s nighttime, and it’s cold outside. Your coat is not as warm as you thought it’d be. It’s not snowing yet, but it will later. You don’t know that, though. All you know is that you can’t see the moon and the clouds look purple and(more)
Seasons come, seasons go.
The trees don't change much - they drop their leaves in the autum and turn green again in the spring, sure, but they're always the same by summer. They're constant.

Seasons just started to melt together
I forgot how is the feeling of spring wind
Smell of summer rain
Color of autumn sunset
And bright of winter sunlight

Seasons change, unless you're in Pittsburgh.

Most of the world has four seasons:  Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.

Pittsburgh has four seasons:  Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Construction.

Almost Winter does not have a specific start date, like Fall, but starts once(more)
Once happy, once blessed
