United States

Hey, it's me! Corbin! I'm a 16 year old guy that tries to live and love. I'm fairly bad at writing, but I do it anyways because it's a great way to express my feelings.

Message from Writer

"Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways,
In ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you."
-Hate Me by Blue October

The End

I Noticed it happening, but I didn't comment
The Moments are over, never to be seen again 
My favorite Fireworks have fizzled and died
My Star Therapy proved to be false
The Wishes will have to wait
I'm not sad,
or mad,
just defeated.
I have lost a piece of my identity.
I may as well be Untitled.

My pieces have fulfilled their purposes,
but like all things,
they end.

After all,
Who did I write these for?

Truths and Untruths

Wishes

. What do I wish for?

  • I wish Donald Trump wasn't running my country. What a clown.
Now that we have that out of the way...
  • I wish that I was the good-looking athletic kid that everybody likes.
  • I wish that I could maintain a solid friend group for more than 12 months.
  • I wish that I could stop making mistakes.
  • I wish that I could stop ruining my relationships.
  • I wish that I could hear the words "I love you" sincerely said to me every day. 
  • I wish that I could finally beat my demons.
  • I wish that I could be the perfect person everyone expects me to be.
Most of all,
  • I wish that I was happy.
Is that too much to ask?

Star Therapy

There once was a young man. He stood at about 6'1" and wore glasses. He had dark brown eyes and light brown hair. 
He was by no means a very attractive young man; but for the sake of his self-esteem, he pretended that he was. 

He came home one cool, early-summer night in a particularly hazey mood. His eyes were open, but he did not see anything. His mind was racing. Just an hour earlier, his lips had been pressed against the lips of the most entrancingly beautiful girl he had ever met. 
The young man wandered onto his back deck and onto his trampoline, where he laid on his back and gazed gleefully at the stars above. 

"Hey," he said dreamily, "You awake?"
"Of course. What troubles you?" The stars above replied. 
"Not troubled this time. Confused, really." the boy said back. 
"About what?"
"About how I'm feeling. Last time I felt like this... well, you know what happened." ...

Moments

The screen illuminates her,
Though she outshines it in every way. 
I'm watching the movie,
But I'd rather be watching her. 
Her hand is intertwined with mine
My head rests on her shoulder
I feel her chest rise and fall
I hear her heart beating for both of us
It is moments like these, when she holds me, that I begin to wonder 
How I could have doubted her love for me in the first place. 

Open Prompt

The End of Steven Jones

There once was an old man by the name of Steve. 
Steve was a small, frail man, no bigger than 5'4".
At the slow age of 88, Steve sat alone in his house, located at the quiet outskirts of his hometown. 
His life was doomed to routine. 
Wake up. Take medication. Watch TV. Sit outside. More medication. Go to bed. 
Repeat. 

Steve had no parents, no siblings, and no children. 
He didn't matter to anyone. 
He had become yet another insignificant speck in the universe. 
And he knew it. 

Steve woke up one cool, crisp Spring morning. 
He didn't take his medication. 
He did watch TV. 
He did sit outside.
He visited his wife's grave, who laid eternally in his backyard. 
He started to feel sick. For a second, he eyed his pills. 
But he still didn't take them. 

Steven F. Jones laid in his bed that evening, staring and the ceiling,
Waiting for the ending he so viciously craved.  ...

Bliss

It's 10:18 in the afternoon.
Teeth have been brushed,
Pajamas have been put on,
and goodnights have been said. 

I sit alone in my room.
Faint sounds are heard throughout the house:
My sister plays the guitar every night,
I can hear it through the ceiling
From her room above me.
I communicate with my next eldest brother
by knocking on the wall in between our rooms. 
I hear my little brothers bickering next door
Back and forth in their twin bunk bed.
I hear the plumbing and pipes in my walls,
so I always know whenever someone turns on a sink
or flushes a toilet. 
My dog snorts softly at the foot of my bed.
My pen smoothly scratches across my notebook. 
The sound of my ink on my paper soothes me. 

The noises throughout my house are relaxing. 
I am calm, even with
My sister singing Ed Sheeran upstairs,
My brothers arguing over who can do the best...

Fireworks

Love is like a firework. 
It is explosions that burst in the air
It is entrancing colors against a cold, dark night sky
It is strikingly beautiful in every way.
Even after it's gone, the memory pleases you.
But fireworks can be dangerous.
If not carefully operated, someone could get hurt
We risk it anyways. The reward is too compelling:
The shining lights that remind us why we choose to live.
Life is too short to worry about getting burned.

Everyone has their own fireworks
We set them off whenever we choose,
Though it is up to others to decide
Whether or not your fireworks dance alone
Or burst in perfect unison with another.

I don't often get the chance to light my fireworks,
So when I do, I get overexcited and set off too many
Because it feels good to watch my fireworks explode,
Especially when someone else's accompany me.
My favorite fireworks are the ones that I set...

I Noticed

Sometimes, I don't remember how it started.
I don't remember introducing myself
Our only common interests were our mutual friends
The first thing I remember on our timeline was you giving my friend a hug because she had a rough day
I liked your long, almost black hair. That was first. 
I noticed you.

Eventually, I started sitting at the same lunch table as you and our friends. 
You were funny and witty. I remember laughing with you
I was still hooked on another girl at the time. I tried not to stare at you. It almost felt wrong. I barely knew you. 
Yet my eyes always found their way back to yours
Those gorgeous, entrancing eyes.
That was second.
I noticed you.

One day, you very subtly asked me to morp
"If you don't get asked in the next while, do you wanna go?" you asked me
That was the first time you made my heart jump. Something told...
