I don't really write much, and if is do it is often about death.

FREE WRITING

5
In the summer we all played
and sang and laughed
and we fought with our brothers
and wished for a sister
and fell asleep under the stars

and In the summer we swam in lakes
and ponds and rivers
and gossiped about girls
and cried over boys
and tucked ourselves into bed

Along came autumn
and we cheated and lied
and we judge one another
and hated our bodies
and couldn't fall asleep

And in the autumn our grades all dropped
and our looks all changed
and our parents split
and our brothers left
and we didn't go to sleep


and in the winter, we all skipped school
and we were all crushed
and everyone struggled
but no one talked
and we cried ourselves to sleep

and now I lie
on the bathroom floor
in a pool of blood
because I can't reach my bed
and I can't wake up

where did it all go wrong?

    oh this. like abby said-- a roller coaster of emotions. first the joyous summer, and then fall came and things went downhill, and they are still falling and falling and wow the emotions seeping thru my computer screen! the imagery is so powerful and this is so sorrowful and regretful but in a beautiful and broken way. i love this, i do. keep writing and i hope you feel better! <3<3<3

    look I will send this directly to one of your pieces but I will put it here aswell so no one else asks, I am totally fine. I was having a rough day and read a sad book so I was just a bit upset when i wrote this. but thank you so much for the support anyway

    i have a few things i'd like to say, so let's get crackin.
    firstly, this is so well written. it's a roller coaster of emotions. from the happy uplifting mood at the beginning, but then the total dread and hopelessness i felt at the end. it takes true talent to do that
    secondly, i know you probably have no idea who i am, but hey, i'm here to talk if you need it. this may sound superficial because it's from this random person on the internet, but i do mean it. <33
    lastly, this will probably get taken down by wtw, but i'm glad i got to see it while it was still up :)

    Omigosh, first off, are you okay?
    This piece is tear inducing and heart-wrenching. Great job. But if you need someone to talk to, I'm always here <3
