Message from Writer

Hi there! I'm Vanilla, but I prefer chocolate by a mile. Vanilla is also an adjective, which pretty much describes me.
I love to write, especially poems. I'd love to improve and help others too! I hope you enjoy my writing!

it does not mean

PROMPT: Refuge

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

Refuge does not that you read the newspapers and watch the news frantically so that you understand what is going on around you.

Refuge does not mean that a heavy weight settles on your heart every time you take a step further from your home.

PROMPT: #ListenFirst

I have observed, in my all my years of inexperience and childishness, that in a conversation (provided that that the conversation is not on the verge of turning into violence), if you do not reply, the other person always continues speaking. And most of the times, the things they say after the silence are generally made up of words that need to be aired the most. 

A teacher telling her story in class, a friend puzzled over a future choices,...

cake and rain

PROMPT: Bread and Light

There is a bakery 
behind my school
hidden,
the owner, retired army officer, 
bakes only for pleasure.
I buy bread on the good days
and cake on the bad ones. 

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...

Aquaria

PROMPT: Invisible Cities

We've been drifting afloat for quite some time now. Water below, our city has been built up on purity, on movement. We celebrate the tranquility found in the noise of flowing water. Our houses float, made up of wood and corals. Sometimes they halt, stopped by a mess of seaweeds, but we always manage to pass through.

Our births take place underwater, where the newborn rises from the water, swimming before it can cry. The water eases the pain of...
