FREE WRITING

18

forgive for a forever and hope it's worth it,
even if it's not this present is a gift that i want to lose myself in.
i feel it flushing back in, a cut-off december breathing into renewal.
i thought we had been blown away by the aimless night but
here i am, waiting by the waves
for that same riptide to bless and break me.
every moment with you is a silver lining,
honey, i hope you don't use it as a silver knife.
i'd bleed for you but i fear to bleed of our death,
find the blinding light and don't walk backwards into regret.
i love to explore our ruins,
with a glance that lasts a lifetime
and converstions that build bliss with once fallen faith.
fun fact: the first line i actually speedily wrote as a title and then kinda liked it and wanted to put it in. so then i wrote the next line to follow it.
i'm frustrated that i'm kind of writer dry,i want the flow back.

    Amazing! I love this- the way you tell this (love?) story is just so beautiful. "a cut-off december breathing into renewal" is just wow. RE: Haha yeah- I mean, I've always loved reading and I did pretty good in poetry in younger grades- and grade 7 was the last of that. And then earlier this year my friend was talking about how she was writing on this short story site (another one) and then me being so bored cause of COVID decided to try and then I found WTW a month later and I wrote my first piece of poetry in like 3 years- and some people actually liked it!! So now I'm still here- hopefully, to stay! And aww, thank you so much- I look forward to getting to know you and everyone on here! <3 Speaking of which- what's your favourite book? And I know this is so hard but try to pick one, or even your favourite at the moment if you can't!
