Chasing my dreams of becoming an author in a disorderly manner and writing weird stuff that pops up in my mind in the shower. *shrugs* Idk. I hope you enjoy!

FREE WRITING

4
Sky painted ceiling 
Stars inside my room
Still you're out of this world 

Illusion of control
Choices I make
Still I couldn't change fate

Paint it black 
My hearts greyed
Colors only when I close my eyes

Desert to glass
World on fire
Still I shudder from your cold final kiss 

Sculpture of flesh
A mind in body
Still a lost soul
I made lots of references during this piece to the songs I was listening to as I wrote each stanza.
It’s okay to be lost. It is okay to be found. It is okay to feel. We are all just making it up as we go. 
I hope you all are doing well today. :)
