some days I’m so afraid of pain, I’ll do anything to avoid it

other days, I want to fling myself through a window

and watch my blood flow

watch as the red soaks the ground

but today I’m snatching back all the droplets

shoving them back inside

and gathering them close

crouching low and far from windows

to sit in shadows that hide me from the world.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
