thanks to paisley blue, rwong, wisp, and crystalline galaxies for all the love and support.

scribble chums with remi'sgotinkstains, useless :), and Starlitskies.

i think i'm a broken umbrella?

take a deep breath and
let tomorrow dissolve
into today;

​a paradox of sorts

FREE WRITING

14


i don't think. maybe i never did.
a thoughtless machine,
trying so hard to hone her craft.

but it ends in dancing flames
and i won't be mesmerized
by them for long.

i can't help sinking
into the rejection,
letting the tightness in my chest
envelop me

until i fear a stray ember
will be all that it takes before i combust,
spewing the ashen words everywhere.

i keep doing this to myself,
analyzing the data that's not even there.
and i know that my blanched face
can't take any more charred skin or burning flesh.

but i also know it's hopeless to get me to stop.

 
i'm okay, how bout you guys? this is to get out some steam.. i'm actually doing so much better after writing this. honestly, writing poems can do a lot to relieve dem feelings. try it out next time you are mad or sad or glad, okay?

    you're so right, poetry and writing in any form, any art/creative form, for that matter, is cathartic.
