I'm Vanilla, but I prefer chocolate by a mile. Vanilla is also an adjective, which pretty much describes me. I love to write, and I love to review! cheers :)

Who cares about sunsets anymore?

PROMPT: Love After Love

sand gets between your toes while you eat noodles
sitting on a rock next to the sea,
looking at brilliant brown sautéd onions
instead
of the horizon
ignoring the sunset
(oh, you know it's glorious as always,
but nothing beats the feeling of 
conquering hunger)


You laugh as you eat, confounded at your ways

between sandy hair and salty fingers

Have you...

it does not mean

PROMPT: Refuge

Refuge does not mean that you life is a 'situation' from which you need to be 'extracted'.

cake and rain

PROMPT: Bread and Light

There is a bakery

There are only four
months out of a year
where it rains
but for the other eight
i imagine it raining anyway
the drops sliding off glass
bouncing off concrete
melting paper into strips and carrying it away
as if trying to tell me
to surrender my past to the...

DREAMS TO GOALS

PROMPT: Writing Resolutions

WRITING GOAL #1
Carry a notebook specifically for your last year of school, every single day, every single event. Write everything that you can use in your novel (which has the setting of a school) before you lose the school experience forever.

WRITING GOAL #2
If you feel frustrated, write. Write it on an Instagram story or a piece of paper, but show it to someone. Make it metaphorical, lyrical, or simply free verse, but remember that someone somewhere might...
