Message from Writer

I mainly write on my own experiences or just outright philosophize. My main goal is to create a short story or anything that goes as far as about ten pages long; don't think I'm ready to write anything bigger that.

I've been trying to find my own voice, as far as prose style is concerned, and the way in which I set up the stories. I like to use different writing styles depending on which story I'm writing, but I like them to be consistent within each story. Since that's my biggest issue, comments on style are more than appreciated!

    Last week, I was on my way to my ex's building for his swimming pool ("ex" what, you ask me? Truth is, I wouldn't even know how to answer that question.) Together we had seen one year and a half of an on-again-off-again relationship, the kind that was essentially more impactful on me than it was on him.

I had met him in one of those distraction moments you find yourself in a bustling Brasilia party. It was 2014, and...

    Last week, I was on my way to my ex's building for his swimming pool ("ex" what, you ask me? Truth is, I wouldn't even know how to answer that question.) Together we had seen one year and a half of an on-again-off-again relationship, the kind that was essentially more impactful on me than it was on him.

I had met him in one of those distraction moments you find yourself in a bustling Brasilia party. It was 2014, and the seniors were doing their traditional Afterprom party: everybody was dancing and drinking; and even some of the teachers joined in. There I was, on a blue linen shirt and a very unmemorable haircut, and an even less memorable social attitude, dancing away without any sense of style at all - everything about me, exhaustingly forgettable, excruciatingly boring. At 2am, one of my best friends finally took the embrace of the girl he liked; at 3am, my best friend back...

Theme: The Loss of a Friend

Part 1: Clarice (February 2015)

You little fool; you don't realize I like you. I like you so much. I only wish you could have known that so we could laugh together again; so we could mock at my innocence and my ingenious curiosity for anything that is dangerous. Before every "wrong" move I made was turned into this sudden, stern, somber judgment of character in which I haven't fulfilled your expectations.

And sometimes it is not just you that is sickened by me; it is myself. But I thank my heart and my soul for understanding the horridness of the complications and inflations of my ego so I can do what's within my best to change.

For I have learned that the image, the only image that is pleasant to myself of myself is that of the innocent child; the naive, easy-going, bright-eyed boy who is always smiling and committing adorable little social gaffes.

I have taken this as...

Poetry

Wind barrier

A wall. A brick barrier, a protector.
A castle made of rocks.

Impetus, our passion to pursue.
There is a momentum in our souls.

Don’t ever look back, on the animals,
Poor victims of hit-and-run.
I am terribly sorry, I must go on.

I exist! I exert a force
Upon this universe of malleable and
Unmovable matter. I make a difference.

So I put up my wind barrier.
Don’t ever think too much, don’t ever feel too much;
But feel the wind! Feeling is the most important part.

Unshakable by earthquakes,
Resistant to hot fire.

The fortress, the military fort
That guards and guards.

Build! Grow! Live!
There is nothing wrong with it.

Behind every human move
There is an intricate system of reason.

Live by it. The fuel that takes on the soul.

Ever moving, ever aiming.
Does the leopard feel sorry for the eaten zebra?

Not parasitical. It is anything but.
Not cancer. Not selfish. I’m not acidic.
