Write about a character leaving something, or someone, they love.
Stuck in a rut! Like im tied to a tree… its one thing to go but another when i have to leave.
Trapped between my reality and my fantasy of a dream…keeping me drifting like a leaf on the open sea.
Wondering, aimless searching for that one last kiss that would melt the pain away in just an instance. Man i wish I would’ve thought this through.
My desire verus the things i gotta do to to survive an...
The steering wheel is hot enough to burn my hands if I rest them on the scalding leather for longer than a moment. I glance at my legs, shocked that they are not cramped. My seat tugs at my my legs like a child pulling its mother’s hand. The burning emotions of the sun hit my eyes, bombarding me with its optimistic attempts at getting me to shut my eyes. I hear car horns, sirens, talking, barking ...
“Why are you doing this to me?!” She cried out, tears welling up in those beautiful blue eyes of her’s. “I have to keep you safe and this is the only way to do it.” I told her my heart breaking as I spoke each word. “They’re coming for me and they’ll come for you too if I don’t go.” A single tear fell from my left eye. That was the only tear I shed that day compared to her thousands that fell like...
First steps are for adventure
Looking forward with vision
That there must be more
Past the invisible bonds
That held you to me safely
Your hand in mine is soft
Each finger that slips from mine
Pulls my heart into threads
Weaving a net to weild as if
I could keep you from going too far...
I gulped. My heart was racing. I was on the verge of tears. The water was dripping everywhere. I sat still in my chair. My father was yelling at me.
“I-Im sorry.” I trembled.
“CLEAN IT UP.” My father yelled. I nodded quickly, and immediately got up to wipe up my spill. He marched to his office.
“And do the fudging dishes!” He yelled.
“Y-yes.” I said quickly. I cleaned up my water, then did...

Gray sat among his tribe, Hawk began to pace in front of him, LionMane, and Valiant.
He turned to them curtly, meeting Grays’ warm amber gaze. “ I will be leading the attack in this squad. Whisper, Hornet, and Gallant will lead the others.” Hawk told his group carefully, exchanging a few anxious, quick glances with Valiant. Gray wanted to be prepared. Focused. But so...
I should’ve known.
I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up.
This always happens.
How foolish coukd I have been?
I should’ve know.
I shouldn’t have stumbled into the bar that night.
I should’ve turned my back the second I say him.
He was no good and I knew it.
I should’ve walked out…
But I didn’t.
I should’ve known.
I should’ve known that he’d take me home.
I should’ve known that he would ge...
Einmal, als ich noch in Italien war, liessest du mich am Strassenrand stehen, ohne Geld, und fuhrst in deinem dummen kleinen Auto davon. Wir hatten uns wiedereinmal wegen irgendwas gestritten, wahrscheinlich hatte ich einen Witz gemacht über den schäbigen Zustand der Lackierung deines Wagens, und du nahmst es persönlich. Wahrscheinlich eskalierte es wie immer bis wir uns anschrien ohne zu wissen w...
To forge a heart out of these splinters you left me.
To repair a soul held together by paperclips and string.
And in the end was just a sorry,
A martyr that grasps just to feel the sting.
To care for you when you didn’t want to heal,
To feel hope like brick to my glass jaw.
And in the end my body is there to steal,
Oh you petty princess is this too raw?
To broker a peace in which we died,
You cost me a fortune,
Not in riches.
But in flesh and bone,
Drugs and stitches.
You took all my care,
Thinking it would stop.
But no thats not fair,
My time not much cop.
And now i pay the price,
For you taking my essence.
You took every slice,
Of my fucking presence.
And continue to take…
from this fool…
But i am the fucker who pays…
Love you R, thank you so much ...
