Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

FREE WRITING

5
Worry and weariness came with me to sleep
They took me by the hand, and wounded me
While I dreamt of faraway lands, places paved with ice and swirling leaves,
They stayed awake
Plotting and scheming, yelling in my ear
They emerged to the sound of an alarm, rearing back their hated faces
What had once been escaped in rest now emerged in morning 
I brought them to school with me
Worry sat with me in class
She cartwheeled, overturning desks and chairs in a whirlwind of chaos
But no one saw her except for me
And when she scared me, leaping from behind a door...
I cried out
Everyone saw me.
But not her.
Weariness trudged along
He put stones in my backpack
He played hide and go seek with my homework 
And he finally pulled me back into sleep’s careless embrace 
Right before a math quiz
Together, we made it through the day
And then I lay my head down for the final time
Determined to bring Hope with me tomorrow.

    This is so beautiful. I really related to it. I love the personification of your feelings. It really brought the piece to life. I also like how you ended the piece on a hopeful note. It gave me hope for better times.
