Message from Writer

please be gentle with my pieces - many of them are rough first drafts, and are still flowering under the rays of my self-fuelled procrastination. i'm currently working on a larger project (read: completely avoiding it like the plague and doing absolutely nothing with it) so many of these pieces might/will be connected to the same world/characters. i also do suffer from depression and anxiety so if i suddenly disappear or put up ten different pieces in the space of 1 hour, please do understand that my brain hates me and wishes to slowly kill me under its administrations. i am still young and figuring out how to write complete sentences so don't kill me if my pieces should see the fiery depths of hell rather than this website. love, antheia.

we are forever
lost,
trapped in the forests of
our own minds.
we cut down the
branches that hold
us capture,
only to find more.
the blood of our
wounds
fall down off our
cheeks –
the evidence of our
fight
wiped away by the back of our
hands.
only us against the world,
we fall prey to the
lies of it.
we fall and we fall and
we fall,
our wings
broken and torn,
unable to fly.
our hands reach out to the
turned backs
and
pitying faces,
only to come away
bloodied,
nowhere healed.
we become victims of the
rhythm of time,
our hair grey and our
hands useless.
no memories
no family
no one to turn to as the
forest closes in.
no one to remember our
fights,
no one to remember us.
we become a forgotten
name
in a
sea of grief,
the tides lapping away
at us.
we become just another branch
in somebody’s forest,
just another ornament for
time’s mantlepiece.
 
this was meant to be a piece for the writing prompt 'unconventional' but I've already published piece for it and it seems that i cant publish a second one under the same prompt. so please enjoy this and if you want, comment. but please don't feel pressured do to so. love you all, antheia.
