Don't just be another brick in the wall.

I also love summer evenings, cats, bubbles and cuddles :)

Message from Writer

I'm a teenage girl with a peculiar mind. I try to make sense of this hectic world through writing and it does work, sometimes. I really want to become a better writer, maybe even have something published one day.. that would be amazing. It's probably worth mentioning that a lot of my pieces are not finished and probably never will be finished, but I'm proud of them regardless, which is why I publish them. It's also probably worth mentioning that some of my pieces deal with quite dark and sad topics. I'll put trigger warnings at the start of the pieces that I believe should have trigger warnings but if you have any problems with any of the other ones, please let me know. I don't want to hurt anybody.

Conventional Fears

March 31, 2016

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I’m not afraid of conventional fears.
Big spiders or sharks beneath the waves
Just don’t bother me.
Darkness? I confide in it.
Horror movies? I dream them nightly.
I’m first in line for the bungee jump.
Roller-coasters and white water rafting
Give me the rush I crave.
Acting on stage? I live for it.
Graveyards? In death I find peace.
But if you lose me in a large crowd
Or if the bus is noisy or someone talks too loud,
That’s when I start shake.
Answering the phone? Forgive my stammer.
Being nudged accidently? Panic attack.
Facing the group who used to be my friends
Being told I’m wrong, then not able to make amends
Is my worst nightmare
You don’t reply? I’m not good enough.
Having to revise? I’d rather sit and cry.
I’m not afraid of conventional fears.
Thinking about the future is really daunting
 But I still do it.
Why though? Because I have to
Why though? Because I don’t want to live in fear.
