Getting High with your Best Friends

FREE WRITING


The bass of a song that I have never heard before blasts through the car, so loud that any conversation would just be pointless. It’s calming. Michael is speaking but I can’t hear him so I continue to listen to the music.
 
All of my best friends like to go and get fucked up.
 
That’s true – to different extents. Some fuck themselves up, some resort to drinking and others have harder substances to make themselves feel better....

Talk to the Night

FREE WRITING

For years she spoke to the night,
she wept of her sorrows to the stars
and swapped love stories with the moon
masked by the soundtrack of passing cars.
The darkness is a friend that never judges,
the night will never betray
anything whispered or screamed to its sky,
but it can never stay.
Each morning she would wake up
with weary eyes and heavy thoughts
but into the night's comforting arms she could not leap
as in the day's...

Pictures

FREE WRITING

Pictures and items are the most important
things that a person can own
because whether its a card from your aunt
or a letter containing your friend's rant
they hold a value you cannot loan.
With each and every image there is
a crucial memory that is stored,
sometimes of people that you miss
or ones that remind you of your first kiss,
they all have memories your mind accidentally ignored.
With one picture, a rush of memories
come flooding...

Liquid Fire

FREE WRITING

The streetlights bathed her in a soft orange glow as she walked under them. Not much was visible outside the circles of light apart from her breath in front of her face. Shadows lurked in the distance but none of which particularly frightened, or even interested her. All that held her focus was the music in her ears and the frost sliding under her feet. A quick look at her watch revealed the time to be almost midnight. She did...

Broken Dams

FREE WRITING

It begins with the shaking,
that terrible jolt of spasm that
wracks your weary body, leaving
it useless where it sat.
It gets worse the longer you leave it
but still you pass it off as cold,
as under layers of clothes you sit
and wait for the fits to fold.

Then comes the breathing,
so heavy and deep you would think
that you were drowning
in a boat destined to sink.
It doesn't phase you as the breaths
get...

Thank you

FREE WRITING

Thank you to all the people who tore me down and threw me away because people so much better than you came along to pick me up.

Thank you for giving me the power to write and use my words to tell such stories but not giving me the will to write 'those words'.

Thank you for letting me cry and letting me laugh with the people who mean the most to me in the entire world.

Thank you for...

Very Big Quite Little Things

FREE WRITING

I want to run away with someone who means the world to me
and I want them to want just as bad to go and see
all the very big quite little things that I dream about at night
or even in the early hours of the morning when the light
of the rising sun seeps through my window while I am
sitting there wishing that I could be out in the air of a new day.

I want to...

To a Few

FREE WRITING

I try to isolate myself,
'It's for the best'
I tell myself -
just blend in with the rest.
But I crave speaking to you
I sit and think about
all I want to say to you
everything that happens I just want to tell you.
Although I worry that I speak too much
That one day you'll turn to me and say
that you don't want to hear from me so much -
'maybe just lay off a little'. ...

Frost

FREE WRITING

He walks through the dark streets
watching the frost sparkle on the ground.
It shines like the stars above should but
city lights make that impossible.
He wonders about the meaning of his life,
whether or not he will ever truly be happy or if
love is really real
'For now I'd happily settle with someone to share
small seemingly meaningless moments with.' He thinks.
Those moments could range from holding hands to
watching movies together to
walking through the...
