FREE WRITING

12

The pawns rebelled against the King, revolution began before battle killed.
Cavalry riding on mules attacked the fort, the Kings had their Souls on thrones.
Stars were in quasar on pilgrimage, so tempest wiped dandelion's wails.
coffee-stained papers were filled with elegies, crumbled and thrown into the lakes,
the diaries of princesses became ashes before they became women.
The leaves were falling like paper planes fly, bulge calls broke strings of kites.
They lived in folktales and departed's thoughts though their legacies were lost.

    re to #NEWYEAR: haha yes "it's the caffeine, please excuse me" although i drink mostly decaf (coffee) and yeah everyone gets it. brains are hard to make functional as a teenager. especially nowadays.

    ok, at this point i don't know how many things i'm replying to... this could get confusing and long winded. apologies in advance
    re to Southern California comment: I LOVE TAYLOR REFERENCES SPRINKLED EVERYWHERE. I've only been to SoCal... twice? def sunshine and pop culture. and disneyland. and food. and SoCal is like NYC in a lot of ways... so the "Welcome to New York" lyric def fits. that's actually such a good bop, musically, lyrically, and just a feel-good song.

    I’m so late to this but
    Heck yes you definitely came back stronger than a ‘90s trend.
    I love your writing. It’s so mystical yet direct, symbolism-drenched yet if you don’t overthink it, it takes on a whole new meaning. Your writing is so gorgeously complex and varied that I can take any meaning from it or just bask in its elegance.
    I hope that makes sense. Those are all very good traits. Brain is attempting to function rn, but it may not be succeeding.

    "the Kings had their Souls on thrones."
    "the diaries of princesses became ashes before they became women."
    Gosh this is so good! Like fold it into a paper airplane and send it to the sky good; roll it up as a message in a bottle good; give it to a pigeon and send it back in time good.
