I'm not sure if anyone still visits this blog, but hello. I can't believe it's been so long since I came on here - I honestly don't know what happened. I think I got caught up in the craziness of life and just kind of, forgot. I know that sounds terrible. I also haven't written one piece of poetic writing since my last poem I posted here. Uni is always so busy and stressful, and in a cruel way it sucks the creativity out of me. And I don't know what to write about. It's sad really. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take any writing subjects this semester, so it's just been journalism-based and it's, well, dry! I also apologise if I worried anyone. I didn't mean for it at all.
Well, now that I've remembered how I used to write, how beautiful and kind you readers are, I am going to try to start it up again.
I know it's not much, but here are two snippets of something I wrote down in my notebook one day.
I wait for the sound of your footsteps, but they become quieter and quieter, until I can hardly hear you at all aside from your socks softly brushing against the dark brown wood sometimes...
...Soft light trickles through our translucent curtain and your pale cheeks light up and become golden, but I lay in the dark, the sun just missing me. You look at me briefly and simply turn around, back into the dark, like me.
I hope everyone is truly well. x
