The Reasons

PROMPT: Why I Write

     Why I write? What a question. To be honest with the few that will take the time to read this, I cannot with all the amount of words in the world describe in perfect detail to you the reasons that I write. So here, my friends, is the shortest summary possible. I write because of pain. I write because of sorrow, guilt, regret, happiness, and more. I write because of the stillness and peace it gives off. Hearing...

Blankie for my Thoughts

FREE WRITING

I sleep with your blanket
Every night.
To remind myself not only that there was a day that you were still my person,
But as a reminder that you always will be.
It doesn’t smell like you anymore.
Doesn’t smell like home.
But it is here with me.
And you are not.
It is enough to calm the silent war inside my mind.
Reminding me of how much I miss you.
Reminding me that you’re still living, breathing, and very...

Fear of Being Afraid

FREE WRITING

             Fear of Being Afraid

My biggest fear; honestly, fear itself. I don’t like to be weak. I don’t like for others to know that I deal with things on the inside, that may be difficult to share. I don’t even like to accept it myself. Ultimately, I’d say that my biggest fear is being unsuccessful. So many people in my life have walked right in, and walked right out. No warning. They just came and then they...

Back When

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2017



    Today someone asked me a question I never knew I'd be able to answer. They asked what my life like before the age of 10. Thinking back to before I was even 10,  things were much different than they are today. I am much different than who I am today. I had a completely different outlook on life, love, and religion. Now, that’s my whole world. I was born into a life that wasn’t fair to any child. My birth...

My War, My Battles

FREE WRITING

I'll leave you with this;
a fake smile is not enough

Occasionally saying a minor "hello"
is not enough

Although I may say hello back. 

Simply asking if i'm okay;
is not enough

Realize that nothing you say or do can calm the constant war
that fights inside my mind.

The only thing you can do
is sit still, look good, and mind your own.

I can fight my own battles.
