the lock

you promised to meet me here, by the pier, alongside the dying trees, and across the dancing leaves that drift off the ledge, and plunge with a whistle and scream. elated, i waited: may he be tender, may he be sweet, may the young man come to me, and sweep me off my feet. daunted […]

love, hate, anger, and joy

I wish there were other options rather than using the same tired and overused words Like love, hate, anger, and joy. We claim we mean these words But do we truly know the real meaning? Love, love, love, Love is supposed to be eternal but does it truly last over such trivial Things like currency? Love, love, […]

Horoscopes:

Horoscopes: Whenever we would sit around and read horoscopes, we would gasp and cheer at what the stars foretell. Such faraway beings that burn brighter and brighter, when you would tell the story of mine, I wished I could suddenly combust into bright, unwieldy lights. I was destined to be a scorpio: a passionate being […]

Social interactions:

Social interactions: I am a loner of sorts. I hug the wall when the silent buzz of alcohol flushes out of me and I come to the realization that I am nothing. My epiphany is sudden; I collapse as if my strings were snipped and I sit down, deflated as I watch the parody play […]

Pain, Love, Depression, and Joy

This feeling…

  This feeling is almost like yellow-white lightening. An  unnamed taste that cannot easily part from my lips, I crave the zest of this element yet, I cannot name the feeling it awakens within me. I will search the highest of tides and the lowest beams of yellow-eyed predators until I am able to name […]

A Journey Through my Dreams

For my creative writing class, we had to take inspiration from Elizabeth Bishop’s price 12 O’Clock News! It was so difficult for me but I think I got the hang of it.
