FREE WRITING

she sits at her spindle,
slender fingers dancing in time
as foot hits pedal, as hopes spin into reality.
her palms are damp with sweat, 
her back aching from the strenuous work of
turning wishes into tulle, aspirations into thread,
plastering bodices with ambitions, 
flaring skirts into actuality.
pins sticking out of her mouth, 
she pins my gossamer dreams against the hem,
so they catch the evening breeze as i
twirl into the heavens, hands reaching
for the stars and beyond.

    Hey. I've got a bit confused... This is for prompt 5 right? You commented on my peice that you accidentally wrote prompt 5 or 4. I dunno. Can you tell me which prompt is this for?

    Replying: Of course you can use an old poem. If you could also put the hashtag in the title that would be great.

    Gorgeous!

    Replying: Yes! Thank you! Whenever I need to talk, I'll let you know. He mom already hated me for my religion, so I guess I wouldn't put it past her.

    Replying: Oh. My. Goodness. Mia, you are such a gem. I am so happy to know you. The thing about this piece is it's a personal narrative about my battle with a "mystery disease", and I've hit a bit of a block because I don't know how to tell my own story. I don't know what people want to hear and what's unnecessary. I'm also not sure how to end it; as a cliffhanger (because it's not over yet) or to resolve it (there is a point where I could do it). I would really appreciate a review swap; I think that's a great idea and so kind too. I do not think I'll be able to finish the piece in time, but that's okay. What I want is a story I am proud of and can look back on and remember what I've been through. I don't really care about getting second place or no place. I'll post what I have so far and comment the link. Thank you for being amazing. <3
