I'm 17... I remember writing poems at 6, so I guess I've been in this for a while...
I write poems, prose and literally anything there is to write. Dark, lyrical, comedy, kids... name it.
I'd appreciate comments/critique soooo much!

Shy and Hidden

FREE WRITING

Hard to start,
And harder to continue.

Lips on lock,
Holding emotions in you.

You will hide,
lie, smile, be shy and quiet...
And understand
That least of all, you want to hide.

You sit alone,
In complete silence.
Surrounded by loud thoughts.
You try, to hold, to hide them,
And you hide them in your words...

Letter by letter,slowly
they come out of the darkness.

Line by line, they suddenly
come to life in ink.

«I know,» you write...

Drown in mirage

FREE WRITING

Flowing, raging through the sands,
Cascading, rolling down the dunes,
The waves - so cold, so fresh, so grand,
Swallowed the land into the blue.

The hot, dry ground went wet and cold.
The strangling air went fresh and light.
The deep-blue covered the sand-gold.
The hills of sand turned into tides.

And so he watched the desert sink,
All blue - he couldn't see the ground.
All he thirsted was a drink,
And overwhelmed by water, drowned.

Was it...

Hands

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2017

They all say your hand can show your future. Your life paths stretching across the skin of your palms, every fold marking your every experience, and your fingertips imprinted with the truth of your very being. They say your hand  is a map, displaying the future defined in your skin at birth... I disagree.

I say your hands can build your future. Your life path paved by them, your every experience formed by them, your very being formed by them...

Unfamiliar path

PROMPT: Mystery Writing Competition 2017

I was making my way down the treading path in the forest, as I did every Sunday, right after dinner. I knew each tree, each branch and each rock like the back of my hand… The familiar whistle of the wind among the rows of trees I all but named by now, was like the voice of an old friend, one to whom I no longer wanted to talk. The low, overhanging branches I once loved to jump and reach,...

Autumn

PROMPT: Living Locales

I strolled through the piles of bright orange leaves, covering the ground like a golden carpet, illuminated by the few strings of sun that managed to reach through the shadows of the branches. The cool breeze rustled the canopies of the towering trees and carried birdsong through the forest. I never really managed to spot the birds, it was as if they were ghosts amid the shadow, just the pure sound of their souls remaining, heard among the quiet rustle....

Useless box

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel

I don't know why I'm writing this... I'm tired, sitting at my desk, I look around (bear in mind, that my desk is very organised), and see this box. It's made of wooden sticks connected with thread. It's small, simple, straw-coloured... But that's not all I see. 

I remember when I was buying it: I saw it sitting there on a shelf of some shop, and felt like it should be sitting on the shelf over my desk. I just...

Weakness

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I'm not well, but I don't feel pain.
There's just I sense I can't sustain
Myself, my body and my brain...
I've lost a strength I can't regain:
Like I am heavied by a chain 
Around my neck, trying to restrain
My every move; like all my veins
Have drained of blood; like I've been slain
But not yet dead, or woke again.
I try to move, but it's in vain,
And in my brain a chaos reigns.
There is...
