Princess #C

FREE WRITING

The princess knew that her people loved and worshipped her but in the end, none of that mattered. 

Because she hated herself.

Art

FREE WRITING

I am my own artㅡ

Where blood drops at the ground,
Flesh becomes visible to the eye.
Numbness from the past cuts,
And body is left with scars.

I am my own artㅡ

A walking art that kept hidden,
By clothes with long sleeves and pants.
Different shapes, and it is covered with blood.
A masterpiece but not from the public's eyes.

An artㅡ

Of what I tried to believed in,
Yet knows the truth it wasn't even.

Princess #B

FREE WRITING

The princess sat on her ivory canopy bed, brushing her hair and suddenly she realized something. 

The prince was never going to save her from the dragon.

She had to save herself.

Deep Breath

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things

A deep breath
And not a moment of hesitation
The sensation of falling 
But there's no need to worry
I don't think I want to come back up
I feel safe 
Even with heavy lungs 
I feel safe 
Even with the unknown around me 
I feel safe 
The rushing 
The sharp cold 
It feels safe 
But alas
I must come up 
For another deep breath

Doll of A House

FREE WRITING

I'm dolled up, faked up, maked-up, hated-up, torn up, pieced-up, glued-up and I have to cover it all up. I'm the doll of the house. I'm rested on the mantle, until playtime. I'm not recognized. I never eat, I'm only given attention for my beauty and entertainment. I'm dressed-up, covered-up, beautied-up and placed up on top of a mantle. No one cares about me. I tear up at nights. Rip the dresses of me. Wipe the Crayola off my skin....

movie review #11: to the bone

FREE WRITING

On my quest to watch interesting Netflix movies, I found To the Bone. This was a movie that my boyfriend and I originally thought was a show, so we thought we'd watch it together. While we were disappointed to find out it was a movie, it was pretty good overall.
 
Lily Collins is so beautiful and it was beautiful and terrifying to see her in this state. I love how sarcastic and funny her character, Ellen, is. I...

Look Up

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things

The sky is so pretty swathed in pink,
The colour as deep as a hibiscus,
Or as soft as a blushing cheek.

And you will never know the promises the sky keeps,
If you never look up and weep.

The clouds sit as cotton candy lay,
Teasing to bring the sweetness of rain.
But we do not know what they hold,
For we do not know what they know.

The sky is vast and endless.
Surrounding us and giving shelter. ...

movie review #10: the fundamentals of caring

FREE WRITING

On my quest to watch interesting Netflix movies, I found The Fundamentals of Caring. I saw Paul Rudd and knew it was going to be a good movie, so I had to watch it.
 
I thought that this movie was going to be dumb at first but made myself keep going because Paul Rudd was in it. I couldn't pass it up then. I love Paul Rudd.
 
The beginning makes Ben (Paul Rudd) seem so sad and...

movie review #9: happy anniversary

FREE WRITING

On my quest to watch interesting Netflix movies, I found Happy Anniversary. Happy Anniversary is one of those movies that I came across while searching for something, anything to watch. I read the caption and fell in love and had to watch it. My one mistake: I should've watched it with my boyfriend. (Dear boyfriend - I am very sorry!)
 
Happy Anniversary was intriguing to me because it was about a couple who had been together for awhile...

movie review #8: dude

FREE WRITING

On my quest for interesting Netflix movies, I found Dude. Dude peaked my interest when I saw Lucy Hale on the cover (probably their intention) and at first I thought, oh, it's just another Pretty Little Liars. I'd say it's Pretty Little Liars without all the killing and instead with a lot more weed.
 
While it does deal with death, it is in another way. It is a lot about high school drama and being seniors and going...
