Message from Writer

Hoi! I'm Dragon-Like-Tendencies, but you can call me Dragon, I don't mind! I like writing fantasy and sci-fi, but I enjoy a bit of realistic fiction too. I suck at poetry though, lol. I like applying to different contests to share and improve my works. If your my competition, well, best of luck! I hope I get to read your stories too! I am currently working on a novel known as "Long Lost", which will be posting biweekly, or whenever I can. I also randomly post short stories and sometimes very sucky poetry works. Good luck out there, and see you soon!

Sounds of Earth

PROMPT: Microphone

The unfurling of leaves reveal
The love of a Father and his Pride
He looks down at his Child
And hears his breath
The sloshing of oceans
the cries of jungle cats
as they leap on branches 
to catch their prey

He looks down in his Garden
And sees his favorite Child
A hairless, small thing
his voice singing low
as he wanders the trees
dirt between his toes
shuffling between the bugs and roots

The Child sits down on...

I wake up in the dark. 

I know without looking at the clock that's 3:00. I have two hours and thirty minutes before I have to exist, I have no right to be up. 

I get up. I feel the complaints from my body as I get up out of the warm blankets and into the cool air. Good morning. I start with one foot in front of the other, slow at first to avoid falling over and making sound....

I've got a headache
It's not too much to take
But that doesn't make it hurt any less
I need some caffeine 

Dang it, we only have chamomile
Curse my lack of sleep
If i wasn't dizzy on my two feet
To the car we go

I'm not sure where I'm driving
I think I'm speeding
I'm surprised the cop hasn't done his job
Mental arrest

Tree
oh sh-

Sister Moon

PROMPT: Writing for Children Competition 2020

The sky turned dark one day. 

But I didn't worry. Mom said it was OK. "Sometimes this happens," She said, as she put the protective glasses on my head "It's called a solar eclipse. The Moon hides the sun from us, making it dark." I looked up to the sky with my new glasses. In the sun was a dark circle, slowly moving over the Sun. 

"Did the Moon get jealous of the Sun?" I asked. Mom looked back down...

As the Dark Hit the Day

FREE WRITING

It all began as the dark hit the day.

The citizens of the East knew it was coming, of course. Many astrologists lived in the city, studying the bright eye of the heavens. They attempted to warn the West, but those who saw the sun last tended not to see the differences in the sky, let alone listen to the "crazy ones" who lived opposite to them. 

When the dark hit the day, the sun was high in the sky....

i lost my confidence today

FREE WRITING

i lost my confidence today
i wasnt surprised
he stopped saying hi to me in the halls
it was only a matter of time

i scared off my friends last week
they just stopped showing up
i was too meek to ask again
so i just let them go

i watched my happiness die last year
i held her hand as she went
i watch her panic and fear 
as her moniter stopped screeching

i stopped seeing innocence two years...
