I am a firm believer that some things have no meaning, but I over-analyze them anyway.

Message from Writer

I love writing and always have, but I know that there are plenty of people superior in this field. Therefore, I welcome any and all constructive criticism.

Watermelon Lollipops

FREE WRITING

Julian likes watermelon lollipops more than he loves you, and really, you cannot pretend to be surprised. He has always been one for sugar over substance. You wake up early on Saturday morning to follow him to the candy shop, where he buys a big bag of them and tries to sneak a few before he gets back to your house. He knows that you leave for work at nine and he’ll have free reign of the place.

Miscarriage

FREE WRITING

    The whole situation is as horrifying as it is enigmatic. 
Here in this moment, there are things that exist and don’t at the same time, things that are breathing and not in one prolonged second of agony. My world has opened up, and yet God stands on the other side of the door waiting to slam it in my face. He does not want me to step across the doorframe. Just as well. I am not ready to live in...

Sonnet 1

FREE WRITING

Love me he could not, despite his protest
When met eye to eye, he feels not a thing
His charm is a game, his profes’n a jest
He wears me on hand, prisoner to ring
While men flutter hearts with their kisses sweet
He gives me naught like but blood pulled through skin
And dark shadowed eyes, no ground for my feet
He summons a fight that I cannot win
Perhaps before dark, I once saw the dawn

People Are Nice

FREE WRITING

When will you understand, people are nice
They’re nice to you, they always are
even when they fly their flags
to degrade someone’s murdered ancestors
and panic when a man kneels
We can all have opinions
 
We’re all so nice these days
why do kids have to complain
about when silver flashes in their schools
and the fire alarm warns them
to stay inside, safe with the flames
Not like a little heat hurt anyone
 
People are good...

Keep Your Opinions Off the Internet

PROMPT: Speech Writing Competition 2018

I’m sure every one of you has something that you believe in strongly enough to post a rant about on one of your online accounts. Whether it be something as current as abortion, or as historical as the founding fathers’ skewed view of slavery, you most likely think this topic through in the shower, phrase an eloquent way to say it, and formulate defenses for it. Or even if you don’t, you at least think enough to form a solid...
