@Flapjack ... This is a lot easier to do than some of my other stuff like poetry, so I'll keep doing these fictitious monologues for a while.

#6
Well I guess here is a question that no one would even imagine asking themselves: who even am I anymore? I just hide behind fake personalities and lies. It's horrible and if anything I should be paid well for the actress job I've gotten myself into with all this constant chopping and changing. My mother has definitely found my diary and she does not seem to plan on stopping with the unnecessary charm. I just hope she cuts it out before I make any plans of leaving. Makes it more awkward and difficult for me.

#7
I have decided to pack up my things and leave as soon as possible. There is not much longer I can wait before I will turn around and hit someone. School has been dreadful as usual, and there are people that are making me regret even getting up in the mornings these days... not that that's unusual. Something that I've just gotten used to. But it is more irritating than it normally is. I will just have to stay quiet and not retaliate; who knows what would happen after that.

#8
Tomorrow will be the day that I will leave. Instead of going to school tomorrow; I will wander through the woods for a while. Seek my refuge for a matter of days. I have decided to not tell my parents due to the fact that they will intervene and ruin it for me. I don't know why they would bother; they wouldn't even realise I was gone until a few days after. I doubt they would even report me missing. I imagine that I must move away from my village and I know I must stay away from public places, near police, or family. All just common protocol... I'm so happy that this is finally happening.

I'm done with the pain and sick of feeling tired
Back to square one with all the scars I've acquired
The self-hatred is all consuming and makes me feel dead
Those thoughts of you are now filling me with dread.

I wish I hadn't gotten too attached, you're like the others
I became close to your family, I'm friends with your mother
They all fucked me over in the end anyway or they left
And I'm the only one between us who is left bereft.

People are saying to me that it was you who did me wrong
But I know for a fact that's false, because you made me strong
I'm still going to be thinking about you for days on end
It takes a long time for the broken hearted one to mend.

Then again, the only thing that has been there for me is the blade
Given me support in the form of physical pain, it was a good aid
I always come crawling back to it, so don't call yourself special
It gives me a bit of satisfaction when I dance with the devil.
oh i really love this writings. It really touched me on inside. Wish i could write as good as you. You are great.

Your writing is really good, Shanie. While I don't identify too much with the self-harm, I can see a lot in the other things you have written here. Keep it up - you have a talent for this.

Something a little different here, because I felt like ranting with a "back to school" theme

"To My Teachers"

I know you guys want the best for me
And I'm really sorry that I don't follow your ideals
You say you hate teaching and all that it entails
Are you trying to make us hate you too?

The grounds always seem to be a mess
And you can't handle the more difficult students
Trying my best doesn't seem to be good enough
Are you trying to make us stressed out on purpose?

And the homework is completely another issue
When I do it, you say I've done it wrong
And there's more and more added on everyday
Are you trying to deprive me of sleep and friends?

Although you say my grades are bad
And that we're childish and petty towards others
I know you have all of our best interests at heart
It's hard to be a teacher, so thank you for teaching me.

I've had a massive case of the writer's block for a long long time!!

#9
Today has been very action-packed. It was hard to get away from everyone because it was light, but I did it. I now currently sit in the woods perched in someone's tree house while writing this. I got myself enough good to last for a couple of days, and I took a lot of money from one of my parent's drawers as well as a knife for protection. For now, I will relax and then I will start going further into the woods. I have all of the time in the world now, and I will soon find shelter. I know these woods well.

#10
I forgot that this place was popular with some of the kids in my area. I was wandering through the tall birch trees and other foliage and I saw some children a little younger than me in one of the many clearings on the outsides of the woods. I'm not yet deep into it yet so it didn't really surprise me much that this occurrence had happened. I may have to keep an eye out in case anyone recognises me.

I wonder how my parents and other school friends may be worrying about me, or not worrying about me in my case. I didn't bring my phone, because I knew eventually I may be swayed by their calls and text messages.

#11
I am actually surprised at my knowledge of simple survival skills. I can easily start a fire, and keep it going safely enough to keep warm if I need to. I have managed to find an abundance of berry bushes, and been including them into my daily diet so I am not too hungry. I have not seen a lot of animals in the forest yet apart from some deer; I am still yet to go further into the woods. Anyway, I don't think I am prepared to hunt yet until I am down to a life or death situation. I hope it never comes to that, anyway.

/needtorevivethisthreadbeforeitslockedomg/

Sailing away, gliding on the water
My majestic maiden, keep me safe
For in my time of need I am in grave danger
From falling down into the deep ocean

No one can follow us anymore,
It is simply me and you my dear
So please, the only thing I am asking of you
Is to keep me afloat when I can't swim

The captain must not abandon his ship
And I will never leave you, always in my care
And should you ever need repairing
You'll never fall into someone else's hands

Oh, the adventures we've shared together
I lead you to many different spots on the globe
And you always manage to take us there
And I could never be more thankful, my darling maiden.

Hi Shanie,

Fab as always. I like how it is very simplistic yet carries a lot of weight. I'm glad you revived the thread

As a little something-something, I decided to do short couplets of no more than 2 verses.

This first one kind of carries on with the nautical theme I had in my last post:

Feeling all alone in this godforsaken isolation
My withering brain is feeling out of it's depth
I'm drowning here on the spot without you
Trapped, restricted, with nowhere to go

It's like I'm in my own distorted reality
I'm in a constant state of dichotomy
Torn between left and right, where to go?
The dark is starting to close in on me


This second one completely stems off from the following theme, for reasons unknown (I just felt like it). It also has a very alternative speaker, with quite a childlike mindset:

Hands on the steering wheel, driving fast
The whole world is now at my capability!
I have harnessed my own powers and I'm in control
No one can stop me now!

Tell me what to do, I'll do the opposite
What makes you think you dominate me?
You're not the boss, and you never will be
No one can stop me now!

Might I suggest keeping a notebook/document you can jot snippets of ideas in? That way when you reach a time like this you when you don't know what to write about, you can go back to those, choose one, and turn it into something bigger.

Hah felt like writing some good ol' mythical character descriptions for Halloween:

I - Inraleth



Her skin was the pale yellow of spring sunshine, and her long, blonde tresses were of a similar hue. It all seemed to fall perfectly into place; in small waves, like the ripples of a gentle sea. Tucked away from her face, for the primary reason of comfort, it also gave her the essence of girlishness and independence. However, her fringe lay about her forehead at a relaxed angle to still show her motives. Her face was gentle and sweet, and showed every sign of youth. Her dainty features included a pointy sleek nose; large, almond shaped eyes with an earthy brown iris; and slimline eyebrows which framed her young eyes. Her jaw was sharp with her naturally high cheekbones which gave her a regal stance.

Her figure was slim, but mature: she had a simple khaki suede corset of the period protecting her modesty, tied at the front with a delicate ribbon. Inraleth had donned the corset with light and airy cotton sleeves to protect her flax yellow arms from the sun. Her legs possessed a gentle skirt which flitted with the light draught which added to the feminity of her streamlined figure. Paired with dark opaque tights, wrapped with leather bands on her right thigh used as a pocket for a weapon, or potentially other supplies which could be of use to her. On her supple and agile feet laid knee high boots, of the same fabric which her corset was made from, to protect her lower shins from the elements.

For protection, she had equipped herself with only the lightest tools, for she was quick on her feet and needed to travel light all of the time. She carried an antique bow, a signature piece which must have been a part of a family heirloom. It was the staple piece of her character, and her personality seemed to orbit around this one bow. Made out of the finest metals, it was still lightweight and easy to use for her; however, it had started to show signs of age. Small notches had carved the curvature of the bow spine and the handle had started to show signs of wear.

*brushes the dust off of this thread*

So, today in school we did our own description/narrative piece and I thought I'd share it with you guys

(NB: We did have a stimulus photo, but I can't seem to find it on Google, I'll edit it in here if I do find it.)

The sombre late morning of a Sunday in October had really gone to town with the traditional stereotype. The ordinary drab scenery in a rural patch in England had evolved even more: shrouded by fog, it was almost one of God's niceties to hide the borderline disgusting landscape. That day, the clouds had not been too kind - crying down onto the adjoining villages and hamlets, merciless and relentless. It was nowhere near seizing up.

Tick.

The clocks had risen to life, rejuvenated entirely. All in unison, every minute - every second. The clockworkers were on their rounds now; clocks slung to their backs, clinging for dear life to their tatty calico sacks. Garbled in their Wellington boots and chocolate brown courduroys, donning them as if it was their Sunday best. The old and worn windbreakers flapped in the near crippling icy wind, successfully completing their primary use: keeping the wearer warm in its gentle embrace.

Tock.

The lamps buzzed up erratically, their flipped filaments daintily hanging to their iron structures. It swung in the wind, squeakily; almost like a playful child eagerly kicking their chubby legs on their swingset. The amber glow was familiar to the eyes of the nearest clockworker: evident by his loving stare to the lamp, the reflection lighting up his almost forgotten irises like a starry night sky.


My teacher read it and she said that a thing I should improve on is my firm structure (so that I shouldn't lose clarity and control) and that I shouldn't let the creativity of the piece overly surpass the technicality and foundations of it
