Message from Writer

Hey guys! If writing is your life (as is true for me), then you should follow me so you can stay updated with all of my new pieces. I am always seeking positive critique, and am available to peer review for my followers. My favorite genres are apocalyptic and post apocalyptic fiction, fiction, and mystery, horror, and paranormal. If you are seeking peer reviews for any of these genres, I´m your girl! I love to write flash fiction, so if you like to read that, follow me, and stay connected!

in the Darkness

FREE WRITING

who am I without it
the darkness and emotion
overwhelming me with every punch and hit
they say it'll go away
I keep working 
day after day
to chase these demons I'm bonded to
everyone has bad days, sure
but for me, they're one and the same, through and through
I try to put it away, to push my thoughts down
but the more they seem to leave, the more I seem to drown
in this senseless noise, this background...

the Things you cannot see

FREE WRITING


There are pieces of you that you cannot see
The way your eyes glint with the reflection of the sun
and the way your voice catches
like silk fabric on a sewing needle
when you’re about to cry
As an outsider,
I observe.
I see the way your gestures become
vague, energetic
when you talk about something you’re interested in.
I can feel the heat of your empathy
when you ask me
“Are you really okay?”
These are the things...

how to stand up to Society

FREE WRITING

My culture is who I am
And who I am has changed so much
When I was a kid, in the 2010s,
What you would hear on the radio were songs about love and dreams
Political affairs were courteous and fair
We could play ball outside without our mothers having to worry
We found safety within our schools and churches
Social media did not invert our view of people
As I got older I learned,
Society can never go back...

The Party of Life

FREE WRITING

Life is a party,
to which I was handed an invitation
but I'm the wallflower at this party
relying on someone else
avoiding getting involved or attached.
staying alone, 
hanging out
with just myself.
great party,
I'm so glad I came.

The Invisible City

FREE WRITING

In every mind's eye exists an invisible city
a place where our consciousness will go when faced with
adversity and chaos
Within this city,
we find the calm in the eye of the storm
like the break between crashing waves
or the time in between flashes of lightning.
Some call it a happy place
some call it a daydream
some even call it a childish fantasy
and many stop believing in the magic
and become adults
with cynical remarks and  ...

An Unconventional Love Story

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

I was so nervous. Mrs. Kristina, my church leader said I would make friends, there was a girl who served at church that would like to meet me. I served at a different campus, and never being one to make friends quickly, was nervous about moving to a new location. I walked in, and she introduced herself. 

"Hello, my name is Noelle."

Years later, this girl is my best friend. She'll stay up all night making me feel better, and...
