Untitled 106

God gave you a mouth so you could talk.
God gave me a mind and mouth,
so I could think before I talked.

Mandatory Space

We’re forced to do as they please.
But to say the least.
I’m seriously aching.
Nearly breaking.
Maybe I’ve fallen too fast.
Like every time from my past. 29 more words

John Gardner | On Becoming a Novelist | #12


“In writing short stories—as in writing novels—take one thing at a time. (For some writers, this advice I’m giving may apply best to a first draft; for others, it may hinder the flow at first but be useful when time for revision comes.) Treat a short passage of description as a complete unit and make that one small unit as perfect as you can; then turn to the next unit—a passage of dialogue, say—and make that as perfect as you can. 136 more words

as years pass, my love for you will always last

although we live two separate lives, we will never be able to love another like the day when we had each other.

I’m always at my worst.
I’ve searched far and deep.
For the last couple of years and these past few weeks. 42 more words

Wishes Are Not For Realists

Dearest crush.
It’s funny how anything can make you blush.
It’s only been a few days,
But I already miss the way our eyes were lost in each other’s daily gaze. 32 more words

Piece of Reality

We don’t have enough time throughout the day.
I wish we could just say what we feel.
While I spend most of the day,
picking up every broken piece of me. 20 more words
