I’m just typing whatever comes to mind so this could be horrible or amazing. I realized that one fatal flaw in humanity is that we don’t care. It doesn’t start out that way, but it gets to that point. Eventually you start to feel left out and like the world doesn’t care about you. And when no one cares, you stop caring. Because what’s the point if no one will ever notice that you ever did care. And sure people...

How do you write?

Sometimes I write as a writer
Sometimes I write as a human
Sometimes I write as an overemotional, overdramatic firework
Sometimes I write as me
Which do you think people like the most?

This piece is too small to deserve a title

FREE WRITING

Loneliness is like a pressing fever
It starves you darkly
And wraps around your skin 
Like a snake hissing soft comforting things in the dark
It presses and curls until your blood slows to a crawl

The crafted skies and the coarse earth

FREE WRITING

The sky is too well crafted for me
Too rich and grand
With it's silver linings and gold sunsets
It glances down 
Too lofty and laughably high
And lords itself over my sighs

The earth is too coarse for me 
It's thick skin clings to the back of my hand
Too rocky and unidealized
Too much scrabbling under my nails
Too impure, full of crawling bugs
Too harsh to be compared with soft velvet rugs

The trees are too old...

Kentucky Pride

FREE WRITING

Singing Ho Hey out the window at the top of your lungs,
Beautifully out of tune
Starbucks latte in hand

You reach out the open window
Towards fields of corn and 
High, grassy mountains

Winding roads
Pink flowers
Scraggly trees

Kids on a tire swing
Dogs racing around the backyard
Parents laughing at a joke

Your hair blows back in the wind
You smile
And drive on

maleficent (i) don't have a fairytale~

FREE WRITING

longing for the surreal golden depiction
about dreamflum reflected, distorted in glass? ocean?
apple: poisoned. turned to stone(maybe emerald)
i wonder: why it's impossible to think of God's downfall?
i wonder: why it's impossible to think of Lucifer as God?
maybe that's why I've no fairytale. I'm fairy . . .
that's how my concepts are as drunk as an alcoholic water lily
engraving my heart in an ancient brass. I'm dimming . . .
all princesses are running away...

the carpet surrounding the rink, once a glowing neon in the black light,
is now covered in dirt and debris from years of neglect;
the smell of mold lingers over the space,

Decade

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

A decade since you have gone
But I still hear your voice,
as if it was yesterday.
Ten summers have passed
So have ten winters,
But I doubt,if I will 
survive for ten more seasons,
I won't quit for just another day
Though I am void of reasons.

The Day You Lost Me

FREE WRITING

The mountain path was covered in large, black boulders. Step after step I followed you, legs burning and lungs screaming for air. Above us, bridges towered, silent in the breeze. My fingers were cramped from holding on to my pack for so long, though I wasn't sure how far we'd travelled. We plodded down that hillside, knees trembling under the weight of our bodies. We had no path; we had no destination in mind. 

Soon, I found myself struggling to...
