Hi welcome to my profile fellow writer, I am a 15 year old with a flaming desire for storytelling.

A Funeral for Wilted Flowers

PROMPT: Sijo

The blossom has reached the end of its time; its vibrant tips tinted brown,

no matter how much one tries to water it with their stream of tears.

But don't weep for its death; cherish it for the aroma it once had.

Liebestraum

FREE WRITING

My heart is your grand piano
Every key you touch
Tugs the strings inside my chest

Though you lament to me your inability
Your long, gentle yet forceful fingers 
Play my heart with your legato

Every note I hear in your melody
A flame ignites and burns from within
An excitement
even my middle pedal cannot mask
 
Whatever shall I do but admit that
My ears
my mind and
my body have been
Intoxicated by your piece?

These feelings...

[lost piece]

FREE WRITING

the young writer once so full of fire
to write a story about a cunning liar
fresh ideas flowing in his mind
to his pen his hand would bind.

the words on the paper come to life
his characters he would polish like his treasured knife
the trickster, he imagined, veiled in the night
would meet a young woman who would give him light.

but the writer's father enters the room
over the small boy he would loom
"how silly,"...

Where I'm From

FREE WRITING

They often ask me questions I don't know how to answer.
My voice box an authentic product of USA,
My fingers picked from grapevines in France,
My skin and my skeleton factory-made in China.

I'm like my dad's guitar.
A rosewood neck they no longer manufacture
making it all the more rare and valuable
Then he would paint lightning on the body
and "get it a nice new pickup", he would say
as he caresses the neck with a microfiber...

A Pianist's Fingers

FREE WRITING

A press of the key
Brings out 
More than just a sound
More than just following instructions on a sheet of paper

It tells the weather
Clear and bright
Or humid and sticky

It tells a story
Of a raging storm in an Etude
Or of a princess graceful as a rose
From a magical waltz

It tells a history
Of the evolution of music
Bach, Beethoven to Bartok
Simplicity to sophistication

And it tells a love
A flame, a...

I Write To Live

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write to run away
into my own secret garden
away from the madhouse

I write to see
the blinding darkness around me
and in my head

I write to travel
to jupiter and back
to where the telescopes can no longer see

I write to paint
the winds and the ocean current
with intricate swirls connecting into each other

But I know the truth that

I write to live
every pen stroke is my heartbeat
and every word drips...

A press of the key
Brings out 
More than just a sound

It tells the weather
Clear and bright

It tells a story
The composer wrote
And the pianist reads
