I would like to say this quote describes me but I'm one of those writers who just procrastinates all the time. More of a "writer" if I'm being honest. To those unfortunate enough to read my work: I very much appreciate any comment you can provide, particularly if it's the constructive kind.

My father’s house squats on the edge of the valley, half way up the side of a formation that’s too big to be a hill and too small to be a mountain, facing the snow-capped ridge on the opposite side. Grass is coarse and brown, always, and in the distance, it makes the hills look golden.

Untethered

FREE WRITING

Hiding in the cracks of this pulsing muscle.
That beats unsteadily on,
Is a piercing of glass shards.
With each beat I lose more blood.
 
Like a flock taken to the skies,
I am detached from the earth,
But birds fly together.
Untethered and undone,
I am a lone feather.
 
And the ache spreads like poison,
Black, threading my veins,
Hidden beneath this unbroken flesh,
A woven pattern of pain.
