you sit,
staring at cracks
in white walls.
lyrical memories

repeat
and your only thoughts
are of this summer –

how on diving boards,
you hesitate
before

jumping;
how on friday nights
you reject
drunken bonfires
for a hole
you dug
in the sand

to hide
from noise;
how red 'x's
are scratched

on papers,
crumpled
and left
in corners

and how turning
right
isn’t always possible.
title explanation: as kayley said,
'because when that shit happens. i say damn.'
she made me title it this.

a collab with my best friend :icongwenavhyeuranastasia:.
[hers is here - [link] give her loveeee.]

i know i said i wasn't going to submit anything for a while, but
I KINDA LOVE HER SO.

WAIT WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING THAT I SUBMITTED SOMETHING ALSFKJASDLKFJDL BE HAPPY.

-goes back to 'break from submissions' status-

Hello again.
Loved your poem "damn." I was out of town for several weeks so didn't realize you'd posted it.
Yes you are correct. Turning right ISN'T always possible. Especially for us poets, artists and other crazy genius types.
If you haven't discovered it yet, read a poem called "The Road Not Taken," by the American 20th cent. poet, Robert Frost. At age 15 or so, they might be teaching his stuff to you in High School right about now. As a fine young poet yourself, you will understand instantly why I wanted you to read this once you see it. Also read the works of Pablo Neruda, the great Chilean poet and greatest poet of the 20th cent. in any language, though somewhat undervalued in the USA because he was a Communist...
Peace to you!

my dad had told me a story about a writer and a young man. the young man goes to the writer, and asks his help. he shows him his writing and asks, "sir, do you think i should quit or keep on and become a real writer?" the writer replies to him, "a writer who thinks of quitting writing is not a real writer."

You can be a great & real writer someday if you ever wish so, because you're wonderful! :giggle:
