FREE WRITING

19

sweet, harsh whispers, really; they tickle your skin
with lukewarm words that hurt you in the end. and
when you pick up mirror shards, all you see is the 
blinding dark; pretty ugly turns into an endless thought
consuming everything, it seems you've grown the
words in vines wrapped around your bone, the vines
digging in. and it's always when they don't mean it,
it's okay in the end; but when it's you behind the damage,
then darling, they try to rip your skin off your bone
melting body that's bleeding apologies in the form of
i'm truly sorrys. as for the few people good to you,
they're far and inbetween the tiny slits separating your
hurting; and when you call their names, there's only two
types of replies: shrugging and leave or holding you while
you're crying then leaving. so here you are, with everyone
trying to tell you what you should be, when all you
wanted was to be free; i could lie and say it gets better
if you keep trying, but i don't know more than they
tell me. so at least, keep being, please, for me.
inactivity comes with the school terriroty

    This is such a healing piece. My mind's not in a good place right now, but reading this is soothing. It helps and it heals old wounds. Something about it just feels tender and warm, comforting and loving. Reading this just makes me smile and think that it'll be alright. (Don't worry I'll get over it) And I'm not sure how, but reading your words make me feel like someone gets it. It makes me feel less alone in the world, makes me feel like I'm not just another person, makes me feel like I matter somewhere. It's just healing, your words. (And sorry for the angsty comment; I'm telling you one day I'll come back to this piece and fall in love with it all over again and cringe at my old comments)
    Ah, I was wondering when I would find this comment. Looks like I finally got to "one of these days" huh?

    One of these days I’m going to binge read all your writing and you’re going to come back to the site with like 100 notifications. Because honestly, I wouldn’t mind giving away hours of my time to just read your writing. It’s so beautiful and poignant and majestic in all the best ways.
