    I used to write. But I've lost the ability.

    I don't know why. My mind is so busy, that I can't focus and I also feel that I can't afford the time to spend on something so "non-essential". IDK

    Melancholy A cold wet window On a cold wet

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ILjPphGK_IlJ35QSi9bpGH3Isog5KB3TcOLK0EVD03g/edit?usp=sharing Read if you would like. There is emotion and pain behind every word that I choose and meaning behind every character.

    Days with no events. Happy days.

    Days whose beauty we do not notice until some "event", usually undesired and negative wakes us up and then we realise they were not bad at all after all. Days when in the past I have thought too often "my life is boring". Boring, whatever, I don't care. Days bathed by a sweet...

    We sit And we write At opposite ends of the

    Do you ever feel like you write to escape,

    when I write it always seems to be what I want most, a life I want to live and a person you want to be.

    So I wrote this in 6th grade about a week

    before winter break for this story contest (I won, though). The theme was to make your own little fairy tale or something similar to that. I just found a copy the other day in my attic, as well as a violin I hadn't seen in ages. So yeah, haha. Excuse the bad grammar and all that...

    02|22|09 ours is a house of death any

    lingering brightness has vanished and a veil tossed over our heads shrouds us in shadows we whisper through the darkened halls awaiting death's final pass and try not to notice the stench.

    Miserére Nos Dominus

    The weary sun this day does not rise  as the earth is rent in twain by a booming blare spawned from a sickly horn. Ragged hands wrapped in beads of Rosary scrape their way up the fleshy earth.   A man near the opened earth, of no religion does he ascribe who days ago did laugh...

    Cobalt blue stained eyelids wrinkle,

    I have an idea for a fiction project.

    With a beginning, middle, and end. Usually it's missing a timeline, but not this one. . Now if I can keep my adult-onset ADD in check...and summon up the self-discipline to actually *work on it* and *finish* it....this could be cool!

    Absorbed in your gaze,

    the conversation flows effortlessly. Time is irrelevant, all my eyes can see is you. It's like the room is a sparse empty space filled with everything about you- your voice, the undertone of cedar wood in the air as I breathe in the scent of your cologne. Your gaze sees every...

    The sun was beginning it's descent.
