Bottle

  I wish I had some bottles. They would be clear and hand crafted from some country town in France where they speak with thick accents and put flowers in everything. They would put flowers in the bottles and wrap some twine around them as accent pieces. They would be really…

Holy

I want to be holy. But not in a holier-than-thou sort of way. I want to be just as holy as the next guy-- but by guy I specifically mean someone who goes to church. Because all of the people I know who go to church are fun to hang out…

Acrostic

Everyone said goodbye today. Velvet shoes and gowns were left behind but everyone kept memories with them. Even though it's all over, is it ever really over? Remembering everything seems like it's too much right now so maybe I'll just let myself have random memories of today forever. Yesterday, I…

Spring

I dress like it's Spring every day. I dress in the anticipation of the flowers blooming and the sun staying up for a little bit too long. I would want everyone to dress this way, but at the same time, it feels like I'm a Spring flower in a world…

Unfocus

No matter how much glass is in front of my face, it's all still so unfocused. I'm an unframed, unglassed pair of eyes walking around a bunch of blobs. How many leaves are on that tree? Who knows? But light, that's the true wonder. Small orbs of light that float in…

Strange World

It's a strange world when darkness is merely the absence of light. With all this technology, the strangeness will not be sitting under man-made lighting, but rather sitting in actual darkness, the only natural light, unfiltered. And there will be streetlights on every street, road, and avenue in America. In…

Before Limbo

It's the climb that I wait for. The climb, the anticipation, the buildup and the suspense- because the second it all snaps and you're caught in limbo, the "no g-zone", the free-fall, that's where the food comes back up. That's where, time and time again, the regret of two hot…

Musical Internet

The internet is a strange place. And, naturally, such a place adopted certain kinds of music.   In our day and age, there is a type of music for everyone. From archives of old albums to record-player-simulators, all of the oldies are still safe. However, there are also strangers parts…

Dialogue

At the heart of every story is its main character. And whether that character is inanimate or not, there is always always some exchange of conversation throughout the story. This compositional risk is one of the most common of all. It only requires a minimum of one character, and a…

Poetic Usage

Language is arbitrary. That is, some pay a lot of attention to is, such as poets, and yet some others do not, like essayists, or people who want their point across but do not really mind how it gets there.   People like F. Scott Fitzgerald are a strange mixture of…

Similarity

I feel like everything's already been written. Like every story I think of is just some simple variation of something already done: Mary Potter, Lord of the Necklaces, Planet Fights... So when people compare things like, "Harry Potter is just a version of Lord of the Rings!" Well, yes, it…

Planning

I'm not usually one to plan before writing anything. Even in school, I usually think up an idea, write down the "hook", and get rolling for the next forty five minutes. But then I try to write novels. Novels are incredibly intricate when it comes to plot, theme, characters, settings,…

Art

Art is a masterfully crafted word. Simply the combination of 3 letters provides vivid imagery and emotion associated with the noun. In art, unlike any other human action, we have both the control, as well as the lack of control, to create art that means something to us, means something…

Time

If "time" is linear, home come it moves fast for some people, yet slow for others? How come on the same day that I can literally feel the molasses of time sticking to my fingers, someone else merely feels a breeze through their hair and it's... gone? They say "time…

Vocal Currency

Words are my currency. They can be traded at various rates, gain value according to either social regulation or general allotment and can be exchanged into other types of currency-- languages. Words are, sadly, suffering from a time of inflation. The over saturation of some of English's finest words, such…
