    The stench fills my nose slowly

    and stays intact in bounds of rough knives. It is cutting deep within my nose and in sequence, my stomach's response was to stir and churn at the repulsive odor. I tell my brain to halt the stupidity and build a bridge and happily get over it. It is merely the scent of stale...

    I write a lot but I never share anything

    because I don't think it's good enough in the end. It's like I know in my head what I want it to say and how I want it to make my audience feel, but I can't quite reach it.

    Short Story

    This is a short story I wrote when I was experimenting with description and think it's really sweet so I thought of sharing it with you guys :)The white slightly yellow tinted sunlight was shining brightly in the topaz blue coloured sky when I opened my eyes it shone into them...

    You And I

    Here we are, similar yet so different. I would like to talk with you more, adversity builds character, I've heard... What shall we make?

    Do you know how much you mean to me?

    You give me a haven from stormy seas, a sheltered cove all my own. It's so nice talking with you, laughing with you, crying with you, dreaming with you. When we're together I know everything will be okay. I love you.

    Finish My Story ...

    There once was a dinosaur named livi. She wasn't like the other dinosaurs she liked to sit and day dream all day while the others went out and played. She was made fun of all the time but she didn't care. One day she decided that she was going to go on an adventure. She didn't go...

    Unimpressed

    As much as I enjoy writing on occasion, I can't ever bring myself to say that I'm impressed with a piece of work I've done. Hell, I usually think it's so bad I delete it as soon as I'm done (this is usually referring to short stories). I have all the ideas that I like, but I...

    Something Just Escapes...

     I'm not a great writer. When I try something creative, it reads forced and choppy. I just have a hard time translating my thoughts to paper, it just doesn't translate. It's as if my thoughts and ideas are in a different language than the hand writing them down, and I have a...

    Hey there. I passed you in the grocery store

    So Much For That Idea

    My relationship with writing is a bit confusing. When I was younger, the one thing I hated more than anything was having to write something for school. Well, things changed a bit as I got older. I had always loved to read, and I started to have a few ideas of my own. One day...
