Message from Writer

-I'm Marvel trash, and I'm honestly okay with it. Bucky Barnes owns me.
-I highly recommend any Cassandra Clare book. She will make and break your life.
-I am *a little* obsessed with Supernatural. I may have written some Destiel fanfiction.
-Everything Kevin Kantor has written is amazing, and no one can tell me otherwise.
- Stories are so much more than words thrown on paper or codes in a computer--they are places to visit and people to meet.
-Really bad at social media.
-I drew the drawings that I usually have as my profile picture.
-I'm making up a poetry book to publish!

so bitterly sweet; these violent waves

FREE WRITING

yes, icarus knew the horror he could face;
blisters and burns
but the sun was so warm,
so bitterly sweet,
an idea in his head,
full of promise and heat
the boy wanted to imagine instead of scars
gentle kisses branded to his skin
but the sun could not carry
the weight of the world,
could not replace the careful breeze
keeping icarus afloat
to love is to want
and, god, icarus wanted the sun,
like honey stuck to his fingertips

How could he live with himself, he was always asked. How could he look at God's Earth, at His skies, and say 'no' to it all? He was a crazy man, they said. He gave up sunlight and clouds for fire and smoke, they said, paradise for damnation.

It was all for the smiles, he always replied. He did it for the lazy morning grin before a pillow was thrown into his face, for the sheepish lip-tug and rose-colored blush...

Stuck In Time

FREE WRITING

He smiled a smile that was barely there
So caught in the moment that he wasn't aware;
The moment before the kiss
Looking into each other's eyes
before they flutter shut
Where nothing is for certain
And the pit in the bottom of your stomach
can suddenly speak;
I'm about to kiss someone beautiful.
It's something that I'll never be able to take back.
It will always be stuck in time.

Iron and Wine

Iron and wine
Infinity so divine
These careful touches
feel like a kiss
from the sun
And the curl
of your lips
is like an angel sent
from the heavens above

Without your shadow
I am a full moon
No longer a sliver

Excerpt #5

FREE WRITING

Humanity had always been so much more than it was cut out to be, but it never fully lived up to its potential. Humanity was old and dusty, but underneath it shone like the prestigious Heavens. For every one step forward, there were two steps back. In the reality of the people who would live for less than a century, humanity was not all it was cut out to be. Humanity made redundant decisions, like the lights above him that...

NOT MY LIFE

FREE WRITING


THESE EYES
ARE MY OWN
BUT THIS IS
NOT MY LIFE


IT IS THE LIFE
OF A CHARACTER
THEY MAKE ME PLAY


HE HAS STRINGS
TIED TO HIS WRISTS
AND HE PLAYS THEIR GAME


AND BEING THE ONE
TO BRING HIM TO LIFE
I AM DRAGGED
ALONG WITH HIM


I AM EXPRECTED
TO FOLLOW ORDERS
TO BEAT MYSELF UP
IN THE NAME OF MY COUNTRY


BUT I NEVER
WANTED TO SERVE
THE FLAWED SYSTEM


AND THE MAN
THAT CAME BEFORE...
