Just a girl who likes to write. I love books and video games. Poetry is my way of expressing myself, so it is very dear to me.

Message from Writer

I am happy to receive any type of polite criticism on my pieces.

between us

FREE WRITING

a dance for two
just me and you
back and forth
back and forth
between bodies

singing along
to the same song
music flows
music flows
between hearts

a sweet melody
sets us free
out of time
out of time
between souls

a real connection
of pure affection
between bodies
between hearts
between souls
between us

key to my heart

FREE WRITING

tucked in my pocket
hidden in the sleeve
lies the key to my heart
that you must retrieve

the secrets i hold close
i never let out of sight
you want me to show
and for you, i might

but first you must promise
give me your word
that what you find
what you have heard

you don't judge me for
for the feelings i hold
not for any other parts
that you may behold

the happy memories
or the...

my unrequited crushes

FREE WRITING

i've never been good with crushes
never been good with
not getting attached to those i like

because when i fall for someone i leap
into a bottomless pit of
happiness and sadness entertwined

and when those feelings aren't returned
then where does this,
this useless crush, leave me? nowhere.

i am left with nothing to catch me
as i free fall into pain
a pain i hoped would never happen, but

i knew what was coming when i lept ...

warm, brown eyes

FREE WRITING

looking into her brown eyes, i am reminded
of the hot chocolate i drink during those
chilly days, as winds whip around me in a 
maelstrom of biting cold; her warmth flows 
through my body, dethawing the frozen
heart i've kept covered in ice for so long

the little things she does

FREE WRITING

soft brown hair falls down her back as she
swings; back and forth, back and forth.
the metal chain creaks beneath her weight
higher and higher she flies above me,
while i can only watch in amazement.
she laughs, tells me to stop staring and start
swinging too, but I can only see her;
her and the sun that shines bright behind her
illuminating her figure in the sky like a bird:
beautiful and luminescent, gliding on clouds
humming sweetly...

Autumn Leaves

PROMPT: Slow Seeing

The world alight with brilliant flames
Crackling, roaring, and all-consuming
Slowly, slowly burning sun-kissed earth

Rusted copper and scalded vermilion 
Tawny ochre and golden amber
A beautiful fire twisting, twirling its deathly dance

The blazing inferno destroys the world
Razing summertime's final last breath 
With the charring remains of autumn once more

Me After You

PROMPT: Open Prompt

You are the memory I'll never forget
before the bittersweet taste of guilt and regret

full of grassy knees and childhood ease
sunshine skies and innocent lies

Oh, where did it all go?
How could we have ever known

that this was our future, this was our goodbye
I know it's my fault we became this, but I-

I wish I could take it all back to then
do everything over and start again

Maybe if I had been more...

Just Another Quiet Night

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2017

Glaring lights illuminated the blood drenched road in the quiet night. A woman and her child lay helpless, glass scattered around their prone bodies. Behind them, the once intact car was now a twisted heap of metal on the side of the road. Bewildered, the man stared out the window with bloodshot eyes, his slow mind barely comprehending what had happened. Then ignoring the cries of the child and the calls for help from the woman, he mechanically started his...
