constructive criticism and open thoughts are what I'm aiming for

And we can only ask ourselves -

April 17, 2020

 - What happened?

 I used to dream of outer space,
and dancing with wildflowers,
and kissing the rain.

 I used to sneak out all the time as a kid,
and go to the park,
and play with the neighborhood kids.

 Now I sneak out of the house
to go to the park
and pretend I don't exist.

 Because being surrounded by the
buzz of empty air
and desolate memories

   Is a far cry better than
being in a home where familial love
is running thin

    hey, i've seen your collections around on wtw and i think they're really neat! i love how bite sized and digestable yet profound they are.

    hey! i'm an editor for a lit mag, and we'd be happy to see you submit! i understand that if you'd like to get published somewhere, it's quite the daunting process, but our literary magazine is run by student writers like you, so we hope we can accommodate you a little better! we also give general feedback for every piece you submit. we're interested in your writing so submit to us and we'll get back to you asap!
