Message from Writer

Hey, I'm sphinx. My favorites include crying, pretty people, poetry, renaissance paintings, large novels, classic literature, dressing like a wannabe e-girl, all music, any music, music(al theatre,) fine arts, astrology, my friends, and talking too fast. My dislikes include homophobes, racists, all-around gross people, poetry, comic sans, algebra, the weight of my bass clarinet, the weight of the pressure on me to succeed and get into a good college and actually be a likable person, and fried food because it's nasty.

I say yikes because yikes.

Go read @surlywombat's works because they've exceeded mortal abilities.

That's all (folks?)

     It is currently 10:35 a.m. and I'm in my third-period biology class. I think the teacher is talking about chromosomes and DNA and all that, but I'm not paying attention. Well, not to her. Instead, I'm staring at possibly the most beautiful girl in the universe. Her name is Nari, and she just moved here from California. Los Angeles to be exact. Imagine moving somewhere so expansive as California to somewhere as tiny as New York. Granted, NYC...

Mirrors

Some days I will look in a mirror

And not even see me

How does that work?

Mirrors should reflect, refract, repeat

Not contort, not twist, not bend

I call myself an artist

As I paint myself to fit an image

I know this isn’t me

But at least I’m safe knowing

I’m the perfect copy

Then I look in a mirror

And I don’t even see me

‘It’s not good enough,’ I say

I don’t even notice the cracks...

i. the earth is barren

You must all know me from somewhere at this point.

Through some complications of this website, I cannot access the account (ceruleanoblivion) that I had planned to start posting my works to. 

Therefore, I have resorted to this account. My old account. Here, under a new pseudonym, "Sphinx," I plan to share my works with all who care to read them.

It won't be too long, I hope. I'll see you all soon. <3
