He looks so carefree. It's almost as if the wind follows his directions and makes sure his hair is perfect. He's got a sharp jawline that could cut diamonds. He's always with his friends, the center of attention as if he's a supreme god. I don't blame them cause I feel the same too. He seems smart but covers up his intelligence when he's with his so-called friends. They make him hide his soft rose interior with barbed...

i could fall in love with a breath
a poem
or moment of unrestrained laughter

all it takes is a glance
an embrace
one too many late-night whisperings

i could fall for a handshake
a voice
a shared pause in someone's day

all i need is a secret
or a memory
two dreams of what could be

i could fall into you

Hi my crazy and angry sister! How are you? I know this is a very silly question but I hope you are doing well. I know you will never ask me how am I, after such a big fight with me. But still I want to tell you one thing that when you fight with me you exactly look like an angry bird. Sorry, sorry, don't get too angry, actually this thought has been on my mind for a very...

Scene Description 6

FREE WRITING

The road stretched and winded like a slithering snake, the road contrasting greatly to the landscape which surrounded it from both sides. However the road contained a sort of direction and remoteness, being the only road for miles.

The asphalt shades grinned at the sun, but the shine was dwarfed by the sheer beauty of the surroundings.

Heavenly Body

FREE WRITING

Shall the water tide, be near?
close enough to hear
the water warring against the sand?
A small natural symphony, be white noise band.

Leave the moon to stay afloat
on a magic, waterless boat,
see the cool liquid, drip down, down, 
onto a bigger body, bigger than the air coat. 

May the golden, orange sky stay still, 
light gliding down the mountain hill, 
simmer, sizzle all path it covers
with beauty, glimmer, and more to discover. 

Flatly, back to back...

Lives of kids—so young lost
essence of joy, and future floating out of a inanimate body
because of a pierce,
sent directly from hatred. 

Families ruined, 
falling down the spy-glass of despair, 
dripped with the dried blood of their child.

One day, they were saying goodbye for just a school day,
the next goodbye for eternity. 
After waiting hours, upon deafening time for the fate of their beloved,
To get news, that is a matter of life and death.

Never will I be same after I was slain by 
The knife of disdain on this wretched day
Always wished to get away from the pain
But never given the same as I pay

What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Do you see the invisible scars?
The ones that cut so deep they still sting with a slicing sensation that is scary?

Rabbit Hole

Dead phone battery
8 ours since you talked to me
Is this how love is supposed to be?

Oh, I need you like air to breathe
And deep down inside I'm so scared you'll leave
Insecurity says you're too good for me
Now I'm falling down the rabbit hole in the tree

You're so pretty it hurts
And I never can express it through these empty words
So I'll stare from afar, lucky pennies in the jar
Hasn't anybody told...

Again

Paper cuts, paper thin apologies
As you rip it all to shreds
My heart is bleeding red 
Again
Tear the sails, tear the sheets
A deck of cards you fold
Too much for you to hold
Again

I know it's immature
But I pray for things to be the way they were

When we were high up in the clouds
Lowering the expectations
All eyes watching from the ground
Returning to our stations
My brain is set on what will...

Cute As Hell

Your stupid chuckle, yeah it gets me every time
And I count down the minutes till you're here
This strange emotion, it's something that I'm loving
But on the other hand, it's something that I fear

I was looking in your eyes
Pulled to you with a string
Then I see the dimples
And forget everything

It's not fair
The way the wind rustles through your hair
I swear, when God made you He took extra time and care
