United States

I live in the United States. I'm a Sagittarius/Capricorn(cusp baby). I believe in the supernatural things(some of them). Also, not that religious but so I don't make any of the gods mad, I believe in all of them. Oh, also, Omnisexual.

Message from Writer

"Writers aren't people, exactly. Or, if they're any good, they're a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person." ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

"And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right." ~ Ray Bradbury

"Don't write for the market, write for you readers. It's not about writing a best-seller it's about sharing something that can touch hearts and shift minds." ~ Bryana Beecham

I Was So Sure It Was Love

FREE WRITING

I was sure that I had once met love.
I was young and in middle school,
But I was sure that I had met them nonetheless.
I think it was their twin.

Their twin had curly brown hair,
nice brown eyes that looked at me like I was their world,
and they had lips that left a sweet taste on my mouth.
I was so sure I had met love.

We would go on dates,
We would laugh and secretly...

Loneliness Is Not Poetic, But I Can Make It Seem That Way

FREE WRITING

You may say that I'm alone. 
That I am not a people person. 
You may tell me I'm an Introvert.
But know that my loneliness,
Is a coffin. 

It is what I am buried in.
I am surrounded by love,
But I am buried, 
In my sadness.

So instead of telling you,
I am dying in my own sorrow,
I will tell you that my loneliness,
Is a poetic menagerie of decay. 

I will tell you,
That my loneliness is...

My Infatuation

FREE WRITING

I would like to call this a crush,
But it is nothing more than infatuation.
It is me obsessing over something new.
It is me becoming attached to a new person that has waltzed into my life.
It is just an infatuation.

It's like getting a new toy.
You carry it around everywhere you go,
and you play with it constantly.
I have invited them to things,
and have constantly wanted to have them in my space.

It is like...

To The Boy I Like

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I love the way you smile.
It lights up the whole room,
And brightens my day.

I love the way your hair sits.
It has a little swoop, 
And it suits you perfectly. 

I love your eyes.
They're a nice blue,
And my favorite color. 

I love your sense of humor. 
It may seem kind of weird at first,
But it's pretty close to mine. 

I love your ability to talk to anyone.
You can start a conversation with someone...

To The Boy I Used To Like

FREE WRITING

I still love the way you smile.
It still lights up the room,
but it is no longer what brightens my day.

I still love the way your hair sits.
I think it still has the swoop.
I haven't really noticed the small details lately.

I still love your eyes.
They're still blue.
But they are no longer my favorite color.

Your sense of humor is still weird.
It is still close to mine,
but it is no longer funny.

You Should Let Go

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

His face is in the halls and I see him around, watching him speak to other people and smiling. I remember how he used to smile at me that way, talk to me that way like he wanted to remember every word I spoke. Now my heart and brain don't seem to be on the same page. My heart is telling me to contact him. Try to be friends, see where that goes. Stop being afraid of what you think...

To My Previous Love About My New Love

PROMPT: Love in Words

    I may have loved you. I may have loved the way you looked at me with all the sparkles in your eyes that told their affection to me when I stared into them. I may have loved the way you held me in your arms, the promise of your protection against the world as I laid in them, content. I may have loved the way you said my name in a string of words that had nothing to...

Monster House

PROMPT: In the House

    This house has seen some things. Heard things too. From laughter to screaming. From dogs to tears. It always looks like a tornado has been through it, and well, we call that tornado Macelyn(my 5 year old niece). During the day, people bustle about and do chores, unless it's a weekday then it's just a small dog who runs about, making a mess of everything when she gets bored. Then everyone gets home and the true Chaos of it all...
