Perpetually tired teen with a book in the making. In search of bettering my writing and expanding my horizons. I have a love of coffee, chocolate, Greek mythology, and I occasionally write poetry.

City Lights

FREE WRITING

Do you ever think about how there are no stars in the city, but lights everywhere? I know it's light pollution, but it looks like the humans stole the stars out of the sky and trapped them in windows. 

I guess that's the funny thing about city lights. So many billboards.

They make it look like it's day. Endless artificial day.

A summertime duo. 
We met on the beach.

The Midnight Angel

FREE WRITING

Undiscovered talents can lie in the most rotten of places. Pure heart and passion hidden by location. I guess that’s the situation I’m observing now. I was sitting quietly next to my friends at a bar in a nameless, grimy section of the city that no one cared about. I wasn’t going to drink. I’m the designated driver for tonight on our cross country road trip. I watched with silent amusement as my tipsy friends joked around.
