La Fatigue

FREE WRITING

I am tired. 
Not the skin-deep exhaustion that a good night’s sleep will fix. 
I have a good night’s sleep. 
Almost every night. 
It does not matter if it’s for eight hours. 
Or if I let myself sleep for ten, give myself that much. 
Or if I only had six and have to get up anyway. 

I am tired. 
Not the sweet, fulfilling ache after exercise. 
I do not exercise. 
When I did exercise, I did not feel like this.  ...

tear.

FREE WRITING

warning: explicit language. 

Tell me what love is, motherfucker.

Look me in the eyes.
(tilt your chin up, darling, I want to see you sweat)
Tell me you know what it is.

Something sweet?
(blink and you’ll miss me)
Or something with teeth?

I’ve always been a bit of a magpie, you know. 
(don’t worry, I don’t bite)
I collect pretty things.

Kintsugi

FREE WRITING

Love?
Love, damn you. 
God, it’s fear, it’s terror, beauty is terror and I love but it’s beautiful 

I am delirious 
A fever that doesn’t break on the shore the way it should 

Love is a question and you are the answer
But I never score 100% on tests 

Swear not by me 
The inconstant moon 
Because my love is a fickle, terrible thing 

There is gold along my veins and I can’t help but wonder
Will you break me...

I was Never Very Good at Spoons

FREE WRITING

Ain’t it fun 
How loving you means a little bit of you is me
And a little bit of me is you?
Swapping body parts like cards
In a game of spoons.

But then someone gets all four
And there’s the mad rush for spoons
Because you can’t be left without one.
That means losing 
And you can’t lose.

Now you have a spoon
But I was a bit too slow
So now I have a little bit of you ...

aurelia and her dust jacket

PROMPT: Dust Jacket

PROMPT #1: WRITER ID
  1. What is your favorite genre to write? 
Fantasy, really. I'm a fanfiction writer first and foremost, but when I do write original works, I find myself writing about things that have no real place in the real world. Reading and writing will always be my self-indulgent escape.
  1. What is your favorite genre to read? 
It depends. I like fantasy, but YA fantasy has lost a lot of its allure for me. It's either edgy for the...

Jericho and Eddie

FREE WRITING

“It’s the magic of the world, silly,” she said, looking up at him with bright blue eyes. They shone with a pale glow, luminous like the eyes of a cat in the nighttime. “Can’t you hear the song?” 

He shook his head, and Jericho stuck her tongue out. “You’re not listening,” she said primly, and let herself drop to the cool grass. She leaned back on her hands and tipped her head up to the sky. “C’mon, Eddie. Sit with...

Reckoning

FREE WRITING

The lights are blinding 
but the fear is worse. 
It will not be enough. 
I light a candle
and I let the match burn down to my fingertips. 
But the flame dies,
snuffed out
suffocated
by the dark. 

I light another. 

I’d die a thousand deaths by fire
rather than one by drowning. 
Let the flames devour me
before the waters close over my head. 
I will choke on the ash filling my lungs 
But I will be grateful. 

Because I...

Goodbye, a Novel //2//

FREE WRITING

Chapter 2: Sayonara
Annette was crouched in the shadows of the second floor hallway, having followed Viola down the crosshatching. One of the doors had light coming out from under the wood. Her target, she thought grimly. 
It was a shame, too. He had such nice ornamental plants. Part of her wished she had pocketed one of the itty-bitty succulents she had seen on the way in, perching on one of the windowsills, but she hadn’t thought to at the...

Goodbye, a Novel //1//

FREE WRITING

Chapter 1: Arrivederci
“Viola,” Fiona hissed, as she clung to the pale windowsill. “You better be in position, or so help me, I’ll—”
“Yeah, yeah,” drawled a voice into her right ear, projected with that fancy spell lattice she’d been working on for weeks. “I’m in position.” As Fiona hung, suspended, she heard the sharp clicks of her partner’s rifle setup. “Ready to take out any backup,” said Viola. 
“I’m already on the roof!” chirped Annette in her left ear....

Choose

FREE WRITING

It's time again, the worst time of year
When classes are picked- 
Futures are chosen- 
And that feeling in my gut is fear
The feeling that choice, that the choices you're only allowed to make,
Are really, truly, the entirely wrong ones to take 

My whole life, I've been chasing the smartest people in the room
(Or so it feels like)
Smart, but not smart enough for you
I'm not going to MIT or to Stanford or Cambridge-
Not when I...
