I Am A Writer

I am a writer

I write of love
of monsters
of things unseen

I build nations
and worlds
I give birth to kings

whole Dynasties
rise and fall
with the stroke of my pen

lovers meet
then are lost
forever at my whim

I dream of the
things that scare you
things that inspire you

things that make you cry
things that make you long for another life
or death or redemption

a god among mankind
my readers are my disciples
the only sacrifice is their time

worshiping the words
I create from my mind
my heart my pain

I cut my wrists
use the blood for ink
scrawling my life on the page

Begging to be seen
to be understood
to be known

I am a writer

He was there with his parents and was bored when he saw us. Of course we couldn’t say no. Skye and Corine just gave me a sly side eye when he sat down. They know I have had a crush on him since 5th grade. Suddenly there he was in his blue sweatshirt smiling at me. Before I knew it, my mom texted me saying she was on her way to pick me up. I left Skye and Corine to finish their game to wait for my mom outside and Logan followed me out. I am not really sure how it happened. I just remember laughing at something then him being really close, then kissing. I can still smell him on my shirt. Continue reading “Dear Diary”
