She's the Wanderer, He's the Navigator (Revised) #HomoSapiensStory

FREE WRITING

I'm a Wanderer.
My whole I've touched upon, the unthinkable, wondering why no one else has stopped to feel the beauty that was deep within.
I've always stopped and just followed the wind, letting the world tell me where to go, trusting all I see.
Smelling the roses, touching their petals; listening to to the news buzz, watching them fly by; tasting the freshness of newly picked fruit, thinking about how it was grown.
I was the wanderer, he was the...

i write tragedies (pt. 1???)

i'll be your salvation
i'll save you when you're in too deep
when you need me to i'll shoulder your pain
and at the end of the battle the victory i'll gain

but i write tragedies, not love stories
we lament over failures, not sing of past glories
we lose our minds but fix others at the same time
when we walk alone who will fix us?

Winter

FREE WRITING

There is nothing to hear 
Except silence.
The forest behind me
Is lit up with moonlight.
The snow is full
Of glittering stars.
I turn away with a sigh,
And follow the path
That leads to the road,
My footsteps 
Barely making a sound
In the soft snow.

Summer

FREE WRITING

Flowers are everywhere,
Covering the meadow 
In which I stand.
Mountains reach up
Around me,
So high that the tops 
Are still covered with snow.
A creek runs through 
The meadow,
And the flowers 
Seem to dance 
To its music.

    Hey guys! So I've been doing a lot of contests lately, and with that thinking about what kind of prompts it might be fun to write for (in my humble opinion), and therefore I decided to host my own with some of those prompts.
    Probably no one is going to enter this (or even see this; if you're reading this now leave a comment for a metaphorical gold star (a like on one of your pieces)). I'll honestly...

The Bonds That Tie Our Souls

When I walked into the new building, I felt disconnected. My insides felt hollow and cold, and it seemed like a piece of me was missing. My heart ached as I finally was able to grasp the fact that everyone I loved was not there. Heat rose to my eyes and I felt a silent tear drip down my face while my throat tightened and burned. Everything and everyone I knew and loved were back in Chicago while here I...
