Message from Writer

PROMPT BELOW!
If you find inspiration with this, let me know. I would love to see what you guys do.
Prompt:

Half the names on the list had already been crossed off.

Check out Rohan's Defender and Coolgirl! Honestly, these are some of the most awesome people ever! And they write beautifully! Also, books4life is working on an HG fanfic and you NEED to go read it!

Also, if you need someone to rant to... I'm right here, ready to listen. And if you ever need someone to do a review, I'm here. And if you need a hug, I've got a few of those, too.

LMK if you'd like to be updated on any of my series.

When She Speaks At All

July 5, 2021

FREE WRITING

People wonder why I'm so quiet sometimes
Why I only write in prose and rhymes.
But it's because I always start talking
and then stop halfway, and start walking
away to my room, no one knowing I spoke at all.

They ask me if I'm always this quiet and shy
but they don't know that I always want to cry
when I'm able to stop in the middle of my story
and no one knows. But I don't want them to worry
so I don't say anything at all.

I find things that I'm always so excited to share
but their tiredness and uninterested expressions tend to wear
on me, breaking me down brick-by-brick
until, whenever I say something, I feel sick,
because no one really wants to hear what the annoyance has to say at all.

I started out telling funny stories about everything
but slowly, I realized the people in the car weren't listening.
So, I got quiet, turned silent, became the noiselessness of night.
I realized no one cared, so I rarely show them what I write
because in the end, no one cares when I speak at all.

    Re: Thanks, and same applies to you. I love hearing stories (maybe that's why books are so great).

    Wow this is... wow. I often realize that no one is listening to the stories I tell so I just stop telling them. So I get this.
