care (a mess)

FREE WRITING

It's like I was just a passing dream
Why do I still care?
It's like you thought I was fun for a while
And that's all I was, just something fun
To entertain you
And restrain your
Thoughts, I know how much they hurt
But what am I supposed to do now?
You don't get to dictate my worth
We've established you're not a good person
You don't get to tell me I'm the worst
You care about one thing:...

Things I would never say to you <3

That it hurts me that you love somebody else. Breaks my heart, makes me lose my mind.

I love you more than you could ever know

That you are what keeps me from jumping. You. Yes, you Trinity.

I love you more than you could ever know

That you are my knight in shining armour. Saving me from my own self.

Squirrel Tears

FREE WRITING

It was supposed to be a normal day.

Those don’t seem happen often though, huh?


The first sign that things were wrong was when Squirrel saw the Flock leave the forest.

The Flock was a family of crows, they were mischievous and wise, always playing and dancing, the elders ready to tell a tale.

The second was the smoke, it was a choking thing, even from as far away as the stream it infected his lungs, the air was dry,...

Lay down your weapons, Oh weary soldiering men

Breathe a sigh of relief, as the white flag waves on

Join your men in half-hearted celebration, for the battle is won

Come back home, soldier men.
Honour those who fought beside you, who fell beside you.

Honour those who healed what hurt till the end.

Honour those you fought for, the freedom and pride of your motherland.

Go down to the fields, they call your name.

Where the poppy’s wilted, and...

The truth

I was a perfect little girl, more a tomboy than anything else
Innocent and loving, my heart was open for those around me 
I always felt for those who were going through hard seasons in life
I was always there for those I cared about, and I never left them
they left me..


The truth

I’m hurt. I’m broken, I’m worn and beat down. 
Life's challenges and hardships have taken their toll
My once innocent, loving heart is broken ...

you know you've hit rock bottom when
you laugh at your own jokes to fill the silence,
direct melodramatic confrontations in the stage of your mind,
or realize that your tears, which had once carved hollows into your cheeks,
have long been shaken away, lost in the steady current of time that
you can't help but be swept away by;

I was scared to open the message, but I knew I would have to do it eventually.
It was probably from the Bureau of Experiment Containment; they were probably letting me know that I'd been sighted and they were coming to get me.
But I could always hope it was something else. I could hope it was just Caoimhe, I could hope it was Mom.
I could hope all I wanted. It wouldn't change the truth.

Dear Chief Executive John Lee,

Picture this—it is evening, silvery and cool. All is quiet in the hospital—all but a young woman in deep green. Doctors stand nearby, murmuring tersely. The woman is getting warmer, they agree, but few believe her fever is severe enough to warrant worry. One points out that the rising of her temperature has slowed—like the rocking of a boat, another says. This must mean she is “cooling”. Others, however, are not convinced. They say a...

I do not know if I feel love or insanity,
Because I just want to hold her in my arms.
I don't think I think of her as a friend.

Through a device that measures
The efficacy of my lungs,
I am inhaling wasps like a horror film,
The terror stopping my heart
Between beats
So my lungs are ridged with welts
And veins as thick, inflamed,
As starving attic spider webs.

I am inhaling wasps like a horror film
That I poured down my throat in the dark-
The rattling sound of my life inside
Disconnecting the pitch black railway lines
Of thought; carriages falling off the edge

Fear.
A complicated feeling.
When you're younger it could be not being with your mother.
Now, it could be the fear of somebody finding all of your secrets.
Or maybe your parents finding out you almost failed science (Me lolz)
It's complicated.
Right now I fear that somebody finds something out..

the month where everything seems to get better

the air’s crisp

like the apples i left in the fridge when i was little
and when i breathe in

it feels like taking a bite

in winter i’m sad 

all the time 

but today,
i think i’ll eat my apple

Growing up, this message encouraged us to take charge of our lives. It stressed that we could shape our destiny. Nothing else could determine our path.

she turns heads, she lights a match
and laughs, and sits on the roof of a car.
spends hours wandering the lanes
writing letters, writing letters.
what a beautiful girl, she lived
in such a beautiful world.

how violently she was immortalized
how terrible the stars that spell her name
was she real, in the end?
or a novel, unfinished, left unread?

she paints boxes around her mind,
and dances to defy

THREE WORDS. EIGHT LETTERS. SAY IT AND I’M YOURS.

    When Harlem saw it he said it was terribly cliche. It was cliche. It was the stuff of songs and novellas and overly-peppy commercials and a bunch of other things that he couldn’t stand....

I cried.
I was so scared.
I ran to her room.
Opened the door.
And went into her dresser.
Took at her hoodie. 
Put it on.
I think of that a lot. 
Makes me smile a lot.
