wuthering heights

PROMPT: May Grab Bag

my withering wuthering heights copy
i got it from a friend
who stole it from the library
upstairs in the castle that is our school
it has peeked at my friends 
one of them sleeping
the other nearly crying 
because really
what use is there in algebra?
the red paint of it has brushed my pale skin many times
there is smudged eyeshadow on the pages
up to this day
a mystery 
it has been standing on my shelve ever...

ever changing

PROMPT: Forward Backward

ever changing
our hearts twist
our souls turn and jump
never resting 
never breathing
we leap and stumble and fall
we make the worst of decisions
everything always comes into place
after a while

here i am again

FREE WRITING

here i am again
my words don't flow out in the way they did last summer
they don't write me
i need to write them now

do you want to know why?

because i stopped writing when i stopped hurting
when i got over it
and you wouldn't believe all the things that happened since then
you wouldn't
or maybe, the thing is that you would

i went on
after all the times i didn't want to get up

sometimes maybe

FREE WRITING

sometimes 
maybe
only perhaps
you have to understand that
you are not the star the earth evolves around
you are not everything to everybody
people will hurt you
they will drain you
whether they do it on purpose
or not
and just the other way around
you will hurt them and drain them 
and again
on purpose or not

and maybe
only perhaps
that is alright
that is not something to lose sleep over

others cannot control your being

no one else

FREE WRITING

don't you get it?
don't you understand that all this time
you have been telling yourself
you're worthless
you're less than them
you're small and tiny and hopeless
you're not whole

while all you were being
was
the most
flawed and quirked and perfectly wrong
most whole version

of you.

and no one else can do that.

read that again.

no one else.

tornadoes

FREE WRITING

i was a tornado
i shook you up
i made you realize
i made you tear up
i left you wanting

i seemed far away from all that you knew
and maybe i was

but honey
tornadoes aren't always a bad thing.

that's all i have to say tonight

FREE WRITING

you know what?
i don't care if you're tall or short, a girl or a boy, or else. i don't care if you're skinny or bigger, short haired or long haired, or blue haired. i don't care if you have curls or straight hair. i don't care about your skin colour, the size of your lips or your nose or the colour of your eyes. i don't care about all those little things you hate about you and your personality....

i know now

FREE WRITING

i know now
that moving on 
is not simply jumping on all over 
it's moving forward
keeping on
heading on 
strolling and running and jumping on that railway of your heart

it hurts your heart
it tests your patience
it cultivates you
and your soul

you will feel less whole than you've ever felt
and full again
and empty again
but i promise you
after the time you needed has passed
you will feel a whole other whole
