Message from Writer

Hello! I am the fabulous writer known only as -~+Charlotte+~-
I have made some pretty good quotes in my life, so here:
"The world is made of glass and the right words can shatter it to millions"
"Love is not a game but a game board. Play your pieces as you wish."
"I write because i need to release things i cannot bear to show"
"if you stuff your mouth with memories there'll be no room for words"
(that one kinda sucks)
in case you can't tell i made all those up on the spot.
I post everything I write because sometimes there's gold among the dirt
any old-timer can tell you that
<3
love is love
don't be stupid
stay safe
stay real

i have a bugbite

FREE WRITING

i have a bugbite
right above my calf
its big and red and itches
and i try to ignore it
but i can't

it's the first bugbite of the summer
and i know thats hard to believe
but for some reason this year
we've been mostly mosquito-free

when i make my muscles tense
and i stretch out my leg
it almost disappears
and vanishes into thin air

mother told me when i was younger
to use my naturally long fingernails ...

there can be hope

PROMPT: Enumeration

1. nothing is ever as good as it seemed

you can plan out your life and think you know what you are doing but something will come up. you can pave your path perfectly smooth and perfectly straight and even, but a single rock can trip up any carriage. 

2. you are never enough for yourself

you will always be disappointed in yourself. you can love and adore whatever you do or whatever you make and you can tell yourself...

i have two stones

FREE WRITING

i have two stones
sitting on the milk chocolate table 
in front of me

they aren't made of earth
they aren't made of plastic
but burnt sand that makes up
my two stones

one green and one blue
round yet a little oval
they feel cold and shiny
but i set them down

i have two stones
sitting on the milk chocolate table
two beady eyes
staring into my soul

i have two stones

butterflies

FREE WRITING

i cannot capture feelings
i cannot catch them like butterflies

i cannot hold them and
i cannot mold them and
i cannot look at them, although, i try

i cannot capture the feeling of feelings
i cannot draw them in with honey

i cannot share them and
i cannot wear them and
i cannot buy them with my two bits of money

i cannot capture the emotion of feelings
although those two things may be one and the same

habits

FREE WRITING

i settle into my old habits
quite easily, i'd say

used
to
write
poems
with
one
single
word
per
line
or maybe
two words
each line
or maybe even
three each time
but that was
rare and uncommon
and now i write with as many words as i want
long sentences saying whatever i need to
but old habits die hard
and
i
don't
know
if
i'll
ever
fully
escape
my
habits

chill

FREE WRITING

i can get enthralled
in a world of my own
and scribble and click click 
click away on my keyboard
but i need 
to close
the laptop
and chill

biology

FREE WRITING

the dirt is so lush
so smooth and clumpy
a deep dark chocolate brown
wet and vivid and bright

i always miss the rising of the sun
i always miss the seed sprouting
and i miss it in the informal sense of the word
i long for it, as i wait too long
or i get up too early
and i can't go back to sleep

liquid cyanide

FREE WRITING

liquid cyanide
sprinted down my face
and i can't remember it
without bubbles of poison
clouding my vision
and fogging my sight

it's her parent's fault
it must be
it must be
she's such a terrible person
and when i think of her
the train rolls out of my lower eyelid
down the tracks of my face
the carriages spilling over
the coal overflows

why can't she just realize
that ryan going to the beach is not good
why does...
