I am 16 years old from Louisiana. I want to learn to write better and I want to celebrate the art of writing. We can change the world through our words

memories of a life that's been loved

FREE WRITING

how could I not fall in love with you 
what could have held me back
you make it so easy for me
my descent is senseless
like a freefall that's worth waiting for
taking a step off the edge with faith and trust 

how fast that all changed
love wasted and pushed aside
you were always hard to break
but you shattered what was only a crack
like being thrown to the wolves
for something of my own creation

the woes of a young heart

FREE WRITING

You see I didn’t know very many people at high school. but, It had been only a couple of weeks until he finally started talking to me. We shared five of our seven classes. He has golden-brown hair that shines in the sunlight. His laugh and smile radiated through any classroom, turning the most boring ones into something to look forward to. Now, I still think back to one of the first things I remember him saying to me. “Hey,...

casual

FREE WRITING

I am not a casual person 
Not in love, in friendships, family
the feelings I have are so strong it hurts
I trust people with my entire soul
I love people with my entire heart
I am not a casual person 

My friends remind me of who I am and what I'm capable of, they show me true happiness cause with them everything hurts less, the rest of the world is blurry and I can leave my pain behind, it's...

Survival

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

I fight the urge  

To shout, "I love you!"

I fight the urge

To wrap my arms around your neck

I fight urge  

To laugh at every joke you make

To smile when you smile,

To complement your eyes,

Or your brown highlighted hair

I fight the urge  

To not look you in the eye

Because of just one look  

And you would see that I love you...


If only she'd known then

maybe if id...

hope

FREE WRITING

You see I’ve always let myself be hopeful

hopeful that some guy will like me
One day I walk in and he turns his head
In that moment it’s only me and him

hopeful my parents’ screaming finally stops
The vibrations reverberating In my head spill-out
My brain finally lets me think clearly

Hopeful that one day I’ll stop chasing my hopes maybe one day I’ll finally realize
the way people treat me is not okay

These hopes are merely...

i don't know what to say

FREE WRITING

How do we know when to be brave?
We ask for a sign, then don't take it.
Should I take this leap of faith?
Will I become Icarus and fly to close to the sun?
How does anyone know what might happen?
What good or bad might come when I let these words leave my brain?
How should I handle this uncertainty?

I feel like I've run out of words to say
to somehow show you what I feel inside
how my heart flutters

my life

FREE WRITING

I can't help this constant catatonic catastrophe
my brain is building, breaking and boiling out
til death do us part, what a dauntless day
I'm flying, falling, faking it now 
guess the geyser that is my heart is going out
hopefully, my home isn't hopeless how
can something so sanctimonious show me out

my feelings toward you

FREE WRITING

I sit here and think 
of the millions of ways
you made me feel 
special

I thought I would 
never love again
because of what he did 
to me 

you seemed a little different
cute and kind
like you were one 
of the good guys

you caught my heart
with your looks
but you kept it 
with your mind
