I am a 16 year old boy living in Washington state. I love nature, dogs, writing, and drawing. I'm somewhat of a nerd, and I don't pride myself on being an amazing writer, but I try my best.

love vs life

FREE WRITING

Why do I continue
why do I try
when my time with you
goes when I die

why must I live
why must I fight
when all I can give
goes with the night

It's true that I love you
of that I can't lie
so I'll spend days with you
till I curl up and die.

He Loves Me

PROMPT: Acrostic Verse

He loves me
Even when I get jealous
Lighting my life when I get sad
Opening my life to love
Voicing his affection
Exploring my emotions
Shining my life with love
Making me so incredibly happy
Every day is amazing with him

Fight Back

FREE WRITING

I have this recurring dream. I stand in front of a group of people, microphones aimed at my mouth, the crowd cheering me on, as I give a speech. Despite my immense fear of speaking, I have always had this dream of becoming a famed speech giver, rallying together a crowd of people from all walks of life to a single ideal, not for manipulation or for self interest, but for the sake of a righteous cause. Being remembered not...

Warm nights of Winter

PROMPT: Solastalgia

It's funny how I associate Autumn and Winter with a feeling of warmth rather than cold. They're such family oriented seasons, filled with love, whether conditionally through holidays spent with family  or unconditionally through walks in the cold with your significant other. In contrast, Summer and Spring are Barren seasons filled with unnecessary heat and boredom. The shift from Autumn and Winter to Spring and Summer always leaves me depressed, as I trade Thanks Giving, my Birthday, Christmas, and New...

In January

PROMPT: “In January”

With heart racing I pressed the enter key
like the final nail in my coffin
the only light in the room being 
my brightly lit laptop
perched on my mattress
a reply is sent
"I love you"
like a hug reaching 2000 miles
a kiss spanning an entire country
bamboo softly scraped at my window
as my head fluttered with possibilities
of warmth, of love, of happiness
of him

The Park

PROMPT: Your World in Three Senses

The soft dirt crumbles beneath my feet as I walk to the spot that suits me best. I take a seat and the wet grass folds itself around my fingers. A crow caws before being shooed away by an angry child. The sun claws at my eyes like a cat to a scratching post, and I move my hand to block the light. The wind whistles through my ears as it tickles my face playfully, and I feel the cold air running...

Curtains Closed

PROMPT: On the Last Day of the World

As the Curtains of Earth draw to a close and the final say is said
I'll do the things I've never dared, until I wind up dead.
