Dome

FREE WRITING

There’s always been a glass dome above my head. I’ve always tried to reach the top but then, I give up. I don’t give up because I inevitably won’t ever reach it. I don’t give up for the sheer point failure. I give up because now, the dome has water. The dome fills the top with it. It feels like silk. In a way, it’s inviting. Not the dome filled with water, the silence of the water. The comfort of...

Someone

FREE WRITING

What are you supposed to be doing?
What are you putting off?
What are you going to do about it?
Absolutely nothing. 
Why?
Because the second you do what you’re supposed to, the second you give into putting in the effort you don’t have to put in, and the second you think you need to resolve all the problems in the world, is the day you rely on everyone for yourself. 
What are you supposed to do?
What do you...

Crying on the bus at 9:07 am

FREE WRITING

Sometimes I don’t want to think about you.
Sometimes I want to simply,
forget.
We spent time upon time just
together.
You talked about such things
You would only tell someone you’re in love with.
We pondered to start our own,
to help each other.
My insanity broke.
I felt safe but then,
as i knew,

The crazy one is you,
because who would be crazy enough to push away the only thing keeping you up?

I shouldn’t love you.

The Wasp and The Bee

FREE WRITING

There’s good and bad.
There’s the wasp - they hurt you.
And there’s the bee - they don’t hurt you,
but you’re scared of them.
Wasps will hurt you,
time after time.
Bees won’t but since you’ve been hurt so much by wasps,
you further yourself from both.
We don’t know the difference between 
a wasp
and a bee.
