A Nap Before Bed

I wrote this after a failed attempt at a nap before bed with my girlfriend. We established a new level of lazy together that we both love. Now that I’m working full-time, it’s harder for us to spend time together, or take random trips upstate where we can be alone. It seemed only natural to…

Back Seat

Since this fits so perfectly with what my girlfriend submitted yesterday, I couldn’t help but post it now. It’s another poem that, yes, is about us. The difference is that I didn’t tell her I wrote this. Back Seat She’s sound asleep in the back seat of the van as we drive back home. The…

When Two People Fall in Love

Two posts today! Consider yourselves lucky! I wrote this very quickly during a conversation with someone special. Normally, I save these poems for her, but I want to post this one so I am. Something clicked in me while we were talking and I felt a little bad while writing it because I was going…

On My Father and On Happiness

Another small hint fiction and a slightly larger story for you. I feel bad for not posting another story yesterday, so I’ll catch up today. On My Father He loves peanut butter, He loves chocolate, But he hates Reese’s. On Happiness When you ache From all the times you thought you’d fail And you were…

Car Crash

Sorry for the short break. I’m not done yet. I still have another poem for you guys. I hope your weekend was as good as mine was. I spent it upstate with my family and girlfriend, and it couldn’t have gone any better. I’ve never been happier. Lately, I’ve been trying to write more politically…

One Moment

A little girly, but I’ve been coming up with a lot of nice lines to work with lately. My original intent was to somehow put them into a story, but I think they fit better like this. You be the judge. Enjoy. One Moment One moment, a smile, is all I need to run away…

Free

I wrote this while listening to Free (extended version) by Zac Brown Band. I don’t apologize for stealing the title. I have to write a ten page story, and another monologue based off a stranger’s characteristics for class so as soon as I get that done, I’ll post those here. The monologue is due sooner,…

One Is All It Takes

I’m just free writing here. It started out as a poem, but I couldn’t stick with the form. Maybe that’s a metaphor for something. Maybe I’m just playing around with the title. Either way, I’ve had so much on my mind, and I’ve wanted nothing more than to be able to free myself from it…

For Whom the Bell Tolls

I don’t have a story today, but I do have a quote. I just finished reading For Whom the Bell Tolls and loved it. I started it on Sunday and finished today, about four days–the same amount of time that passed in the book. It was like I became one with the book. Naturally, it broke…

I’m Ready, Are You?

I don’t know what to call this. Some sort of combination between free writing and free verse. Poetic free writing? Does that make sense? Either way, it’s a mess, like myself right now. So much is going on and I’m in zero control. All I can do is buckle up. The journey hasn’t been easy…

What Makes Me Smile

This is a simple prompt: Write about something that makes you smile. What makes you happy? I have a feeling this post is going to be a huge mess. Hopefully I can keep it together and turn it into something nice, something that will make you smile. What Makes Me Smile The first thing that comes to…
