He/Him/His but like really I don't care that much.
MUCH MORE IMPORTANT... I'm an introverted wiccan scorpio and if that doesn't say enough, I also love cats.

and Dr Who
and Poetry, dammit!

Combust

FREE WRITING

I wish
to be a flame.

I wish to be your candle, your light,
Scaring the monsters out of the night as together we walk,
You hold me in your hand,
Padding down the stairs in you bare feet to see who knocks I will protect you
Keep the dark at bay, 
My flickering fire a flighty sort of freedom from the fearsome fear that is the unknown,

Let me be a flame,
a campfire
a fireplace to gather your...

The Wanderer

FREE WRITING


He’s standing, shaken
His knees are shaking
His Bloody palms are aching
He’s breaking his chains
But his back, to, is breaking
He’s going too fast, he needs to start braking
In an hour from now he will be raking in
Profits, poker chips and he still feels fake,
In some ways,
He seems to be,
You see,  
Every spare hour now he uses up practicing
He’s past tricks and reacting
Now he’s after the action
He’s got to...

We are Wandering

FREE WRITING

I was wandering, 
the whiplash of winter's christmas parties long past, 
and memories of maine and marblehead and 
sea spray and skateboards and in the midst of it all was you,
broken girl so beautiful it hurts, 
or beautiful girl so broken and hurt
and half my heart was yours before I knew it, 
and between my busy and your bored
we managed to meetup and 
reveled in revels and everything else and 
too good to last, 
and at long...

Summer School

FREE WRITING

Chapter One: Character

A fictional character is what draws people into a story, what we identify with. But our own character is how we can define our life. 

There are two types that attend summer school. Their are people too bright or stuck up to confine themselves to three seasons of school, because heaven forbid that you should have a life at some point. On the other hand you have kids who do their best to get good grades, but also feel...

Introvert

FREE WRITING

Have you seen my introversion?
the one with the long hair,
and the comfortable hoodie he is 
shy,
and vulnerable,
and cozy,
I miss the days when I could curl up in the car and caress my book and pretend that was the only thing that mattered
I still get lost in books,
But not as often,
because It's hard to get lost when their are friends to ask for directions
we should all get lost more often, 
Losing ourselves...
