I’ve never had such a great best friend. She’s been there for me through everything, literally. She’s outlasted best friends which I thought I had and was never wrong about the people she believed I shouldn’t be around. She’s been there to pick me up at my weakest and help me regain strength and become the person I am today. I love her more than anything, honestly. I feel as though I’ve truly been blessed having her in my life. It’s been said that you’re to find three true friends within your lifetime, however, you’re extremely lucky if you find one of them. I’m extremely certain that I’ve found her and honestly she’s all I need. Morgan … you da best. For real doe. Fuck em all.
I miss you so much, sometimes it’s unbearable. I begin to collect my thoughts and realize that it’s completely bearable. You’re simply not here for in reality only a couple of years. I have forever with you once I pass. I do miss you a whole lot though, I miss the way you’d sniff and blow your nose, your fucked up finger and how I’d always make fun of you for it, the way you’d always pick me up when I never expected for the weekend and we’d do everything from hiking to jumping off cliffs at the falls to exploring the wilderness and making up intense stories about abandoned homes we’d come across in the woods. I miss how you’d always claim you’d tackle and kill a black bear for me and how my six year old self would do the same. I miss you more and more everyday and I tend to think about you more and more everyday. You’re the best, you really are. I
I really do
adore my boyfriend more than anything. I love him more than I feel I’m able to love.
A blind boy sees a green girl
She drives a green car through a dream world
She meets up with a green club
And talks of saving the earth from itself
A blind boy saw a blue man
Who rides a blue bus through a nightmare
He leaves word to a blue home
But the blue seems different since she’s passed away
And the same boy with sunken eyes saw me
And described yellow so perfectly
For everyone who’s ever told me that they don’t write well, or for anyone who’s asked me how to start writing, it’s very simple:
1. Write with honesty.
That cliché saying, ‘Honesty is the best policy’ is not one to be taken lightly. It’s probably one of the best tactics to follow. Honesty is sincerity. It may be difficult to surface, it may sting, and it may bring you to unwanted realizations, but it will blow your mind once you visualize your genuine thoughts into actual words.
2. Write with passion.
We’re all passionate about SOMETHING. Find what it is that you’re passionate about, and let it drive you. Write about someone who makes you forget everything else at the moment, or something you can’t live without. Even if it’s a song that you’re obsessed with for only fifteen minutes, or a girl you just met with whom you might be in love with, allow it to act as a catalyst for your words.
3. Try to make sure your grammar is in tact.
It doesn’t have to be 100% perfect, but do your best. I know that poetry is up to interpretation, but this just goes with writing in general. Good grammar is often overlooked, but it will not only help boost the validity of your writing, it will help you communicate effectively in the long-run.
4. And most importantly, write for yourself first.
Every combination of words you create is your own invention. It’s yours to keep before anyone else’s. Don’t ever overlook the value of your thoughts. Your thoughts are probably the most unique thing about you other than your fingerprint.
But regardless of whether you follow these steps or not, remember that writing is subjective. There are no set guidelines to follow that will help you achieve “good” writing. Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you don’t deserve recognition or that your writing is merely “average”. In my mind, every honest attempt is as good as ever.
