FREE WRITING

18

ankle joint somehow sleeps worse than i do
eye yearns / envies / feels inferior over lambent
blues, trying to replicate
replicate a stupid something successful-er
methodology of some sort falsified uniqueness / peculiarity in
mass murders of genuine style
or thirteen year olds faking maturity
(adolescence lives in the swell of the upper chest
resurfaces in lines of bitter text)
this "progress" rendered "meaningless" in the face of "true style"
reduced to cans of beautiful garbage fires
sold by the underaged beer bottle
indulging in adult fantasies—
(adolescent's favorite crime to commit
is dreaming about breaking out of a
predetermined mold
only to start making one themselves
fret not, they'll break out of that one too)
those deities are always looking down on something
give or take a few words or
Capital Letters
no, those deities can keep looking down
you—
just keep looking forward.

    sold by the underaged beer bottle
    indulging in adult fantasies—" as well as the section afterwards. Just *chef's kiss*. Your writing style is so distinct and dark and rich and gorgeous. I literally love every piece you've made. Lovely work as always! <3

    haha heck yeah lol coincidentally i was just ranting about this earlier. we love the Capital Letters line. "this "progress" rendered "meaningless" in the face of "true style" " and "dreaming about breaking out of a predetermined mold " are just magnificent: really sums it all up. loved this :')

    hi lovely! it feels like it's been so long since i've been properly active at the same time as you on wtw. how are you?
    this piece is gorgeous. i would quote my favorite lines but i'm afraid i'd have to copy and paste the whole thing. please know that you're not alone in the unsatisfied feeling, but really, this is such a talented piece. keep writing. <3 <3
