Young children waving in the wind
skinny and green
playful and happy
carefree without wrinkles
Wrinkled elders with their veiny hands outstretched
Reaching for the same sky they've been living under for hundreds of years
Withered beards falling past their knees
Old smiles all around
Get off your knees
stand up straight
spit the blood out of your mouth
hold your head high
show them the bruises don't hurt
fill your body with fire
let it burst
let it rage
Let it swirl
draw your power from
If you go down
you go down fighting like hell
You will fight this fight
till the end
win or lose
make sure they never forget your face
make sure they never forget
the way your eyes sparkled with strength and power
Tread carefully around the girl with an inferno raging in her eyes. The one with raw anger running though her veins. She can destroy kingdoms with a single tear. The crumble around her and she buries herself deep within them. Monsters and men cower before her on the knees, begging. Nothing hurts her, nothing matters to a girl who cares for nothing. Tread carefully around the girl with a broken heart.
Title: Eyes Everywhere
Tagline: Green. Purple. Yellow. Blue. Anything but Silver.
Your eye color determines who you are and what powers you have. Green eyes - Earth. Silver eyes are hunted and very few are left. Why?
Why are goodbyes so hard, why do tears fill my eyes every time I wave. Sometimes I don’t even utter the word, people don’t need words to leave. They fade in and out of my life and I’m used to it. They come with smiles and open arms and I think they’ll be the one to stay. I’m always wrong, they always leave and I never learn.
Endings are supposedly the beginning of something new. It’s my choice what that new story entails. But It feels easier to swim down, away from the lies and deceit, away from love.
The sun warmed dirt is soft beneath my back, the calming sounds of a trickling stream lull me into a sleep as I stare up at the trees. The wind softly blowing through the canopy, gently moving the branches in a hypnotizing motion. It is quiet out here, peaceful and serene. The forest is always here for me, always comforting and reliable. Yet I know the dangers that lurk here, they lurk deep within me. Anything could happen, a tree crashing to the ground, a snake slithering towards my foot, a spider slowly dropping from above, a cougar silently stalking from behind ready to pounce when my guard is down. It is peaceful and simple when you first step into the woods, the forest seems happy and it welcomes you with open arms but there are many different sides. Horrors lurk in the shadows, hidden to the naked eye, things even the people who know her best don't realize are...
Those who don't write
will never understand.
How we are nothing without our mind,
without the little voices spinning webs of stories in my head
I don't know who I am.
They don't understand because they can't see it.
its a force like no other,
dragging us down
slinging us up
The spark of joy on a Childs face as the hero wins
as the princess is saved
as the dragon is defeated.
As ink hits the paper
another world is born,
one I can control and one I can love.
They may be able to see ink and words
but they can't see
the hours of work
that was born of our heart and mind.
Hey sis, it’s been a while. I’ve been stuck in port for three months now and there are no more repairs to be made to Dawn Kelly. She’s a beautiful ship and always will be. I've repainted her and patched all the little holes, I'm scrubbed her from top to bottom and got new blinds for all the windows. Mum and dad are stuck in France for the moment but we FaceTime every other day. They still can’t seem to figure out the camera. I miss you a lot, It’s hard trying to fulfill our dream alone. The Panama Canal is next, that was always a big stop for us. I’ll be sailing there as soon as quarantine is lifted.
Remember how we could never decide on a name for our beautiful little ship? You wanted it to be something whimsical and pretty and I wanted something strong and fearful. When you left I named her after...
