Message from Writer

Are you searching for purpose?
Then write something, yeah it might be worthless
Then paint something then, it might be wordless
Pointless curses, nonsense verses
You'll see purpose start to surface
No one else is dealing with your demons
Meaning maybe defeating them
Could be the beginning of your meaning, friend

I HOPE Y'ALL HAVE A LOVELY DAY! BTW YOUR HAIR LOOKS GREAT
If you don't have hair then
A: Your head looks pretty shiny and
B: How far do you wash your face?

Never lose your creativity :)

PROMPT: My December Competition

This time of year is always strange. It begins with the early weeks of November where some are twirling around in red tinsel and others are tearing down decorations in protest,
"It was Halloween two days ago!" They shout.
Then the month of December starts to approach and an unspoken tension fills the air. Mothers hurry for that before-Christmas bargain, families argue about whose house everyone is going to for Christmas lunch and the true grinches come out. You can...

PROMPT: Fernweh

Terrorepax.
Tear-roar-ray-pax

Combination of the Latin words Terrore meaning panic and Pax meaning peace.
It's basically the indifferent yet worried sensation you get when you're procrastinating or you've come to accept a horrible fate

This time of year is always strange. It begins with the early weeks of November where some are twirling around in red tinsel and others are tearing down decorations in protest,
"It was Halloween two days ago!" They shout.
Then the month of December starts to approach and an unspoken tension fills the air. Mothers hurry for that before-Christmas bargain, families argue about whose house everyone is going to for Christmas lunch and the true grinches come out. You can usually tell who they are by the hot steam bursting out of their ears when they see Christmas decorations up in shopping centres before December 1st.
The best-known statements of this late November/early December time are
"You've seriously got your Christmas tree up already?"
followed by
"Another storm just hit." or "Christ, it's hot."

'Go on. Kill me.' She said without remorse for herself."

Tetemima 
Teh-tea-mime-ah

Combination of the French word tête meaning head and the Latin word mima meaning actresses.
The creation how a conversation will go or a scenario in your head.

My Apology

It has come to my attention that two of my pieces have been unpublished due to the seriousness of the topics. The pieces removed was a poem called please don't take the risk and a piece of writing titled they were partners. These two spoke about the severity and unromantic reality of suicide and how it's not the answer. I'd like to apologize for uploading them, at the time I was unaware this was unacceptable in the terms and conditions, and clarify that I was not trying to romanticize suicide in any way shape or form.
I believe it is a very serious topic-not to be joked about or seen as a mysterious or edgy way to go. I write about them as a way to stay in control of my own thoughts on such things and bring awareness to others. I know now with such young people able to access this site and the fact that they were put into horrible...

Kiera POV

"You have seven months, " His face was hidden in the shadows of is hood but I could tell he was smiling. 
"Seven whole months? How much am I expecting to be paid for such a long time?" I demanded.
"Nothing." He stated simply. "I'm your boss, who said I'd pay you more for overtime?" 
The anger rose in my throat. My grip tightened onto my dagger the same man had once handed me years before.
"I'm not spending seven months as an actress for no pay." I spun on my heel and began to walk off. 
"Kiera!" He reached out his hand.
"Miss Jones to you." I walked faster, the sound of my clicking shoes somehow being an encouragement. 
"There will be payment." He coughed. I stopped, glancing around at the empty carpark we were in, it was better than showing the respect of looking at him. 
"Just not payment in money." He said slowly.
"No. I...

They say.

"Be yourself." They say
"Slay your personality!"
But how can one do that,
If they tell me how to be?

I tell them I'm asexual.
They asked me how I know.
I explained what I meant, they dismissed,
"You're just being shallow."
 
I tell them I love youtube,
I love the creators and what they do.
But they tell me I'm being pathetic,
"They'll never remember you."

I tell them I have social anxiety.
They roll their eyes. "That's insane!"
"How can you have a social-based mental disorder,
when you were just talking to Jane?"

I even tell them I'm Italian,
And they blankly disagree.
"Why would you identify as Italien
When you weren't born in the country?"

I tell them I'm thirteen.
They disagreed- said I didn't look young,
I pointed out it was my age- wouldn't I know?
They told me to hold my tongue.

I told them I was an introvert-
That I reboot when I'm alone. ...

My December Competition

An iconic holiday

This time of year is always strange. From the early weeks of November, where some are twirling around in tinsel and others are tearing down decorations in protest-
"It was Halloween two days ago!" They say.
To when the month of December starts to approach, where mothers hurry for that Christmas bargain and the true grinches come out- you can tell who they are by the steam coming out of their ears when they see the Christmas decorations up in shopping centres before December 1st.
The most common phrases of this late-November/early-December time is
"You've got the tree up already?"
followed by
"Another storm just hit." or "Christ, it's hot."

I might need to clarify I'm talking about Australia. Whilst other continents are curling up by fires and wearing ugly Christmas sweaters, us Auzzies (G'day) ARE the ugly sweaters, with 40-degree heat and weather that'll make you question how we are even still alive. We're all praying that our roof doesn't...

Roadkill.

Goodnight my sweet little bird, `
Lying on the road.
May you die with respect,
Which your killer never showed.

Your feathers may be tethered,
Your legs, stiff and high,
But may those lolling eyes catch glimpses
Of the enrapturing night sky.

The stars and the moon shall glow for you,
Although they’ll mourn from afar,
They wish for you to remember their light,
Not the ones of the rusty car.

I say this because I recognise you.
I named you Gorgeous, it seemed right.
You’d fly onto my window sill,
And stay there every night.

I lost a friend the day you arrived,
Because of you, my shattered pieces were fit to mend.
No matter if you were fate or just some mere luck,
You became my new animal friend.

I know I’m not  mistaken,
You are indeed that same bird.
I recognise your features,
And that soft tweet I always heard.

You were my sweet little angel,
I’d...

This. This is the place where birds sang.

This is the place where the grass was once greener than any dollar bill. Where water was bluer than any facebook logo. This is the place where flowers emitted a natural perfume and filled the floor with their alluring colours, distracting the eyes of hungry animals. This is the place where the tops of trees were out of sight and bushes were Mother Natures' natural walls. Where the sky you couldn't see due to all the trees, but that's ok- everything eye level is just as beautiful. Areas were filled with colourful bugs hiding underneath every surface and tunnels formed from vines that became something beautiful to walk through. This was the place where every step brought you closer to something new to experience, lush green covering every corner.  

This was the place that was supposed to stay unowned.

The place where the grass wasn't supposed to be uprooted. Where water was...

If only they knew

Ben-
I looked at her with a soft smile. Although I towered over by nearly a foot I felt small, nervous in the pretty presence. I felt as if my heart was going to burst through my chest. So this is what love felt like.
"Kiara?" I croaked. Her head turned. Her pink hair at ears-length bobbed up and down from the movement. She widened her eyes in confusion as she lifted her head as if making facial expression of the sound "Hmm?"
Those eyes... they sparkled in the moonlight behind her large black frames. She smiled that beautiful smile when she looked at me and we laughed together, before I decided to finally ask.
"What are you thinking about? Like actually?"
She loved talking about life in general, I knew her answer would probably be deep as she didn't answer at first. 
She sighed, her eyes sinking with distaste. "The fact I'm unlovable."
"SHHH!" I gave her a playful...
