First off, I just want to say I thought this was fucking brilliant. Now that my initial sentiments have been addressed I'd like to get ...

I really love the direction you went with this and I really like that you tried something different. This narrative kind of piece had a...

caughtwhen I was younger
I used to chase boys
across the schoolyard
and carve their names into
the darkest depths of
my makeshift diaries;
I thought they were my
best kept secrets,
so carefully
tucked away under the
corners of my mattress
(or so I thought until my mother
asked we exactly who
jonathan was and why
my tongue tripped
over his name.)
as I entered
my rip and pungent
teenage years full of angst
and peer pressure
I found myself falling
or rather flailing
madly into love,
which the first one is
always the messiest
because we’re still not
quite sure what love is
except that it makes your
chest feel tight and
sitting in class next to your now
extremely hard--
needless to say he was
neither the first nor last
boy to play with my heartstrings.
but now as I sit on the edge
of adulthood my feet dangling
precariously off its ledge,
the names and faces that
used to line the margins
of my notebooks
have faded to fond memories
and I’ve found myself
if I could go back in timeit all started with a hello that
came fl-fl-flittering from
my quivering, adolescent lips
and then we
into a hypersonic
oblivion were me melted together
in a symphonic mix
of words and the distilled
inks of dead poets.
we g r e w and glowed
and slowly we (I)
fell deeper into
uncharted waters that
made my bones grow cold
and my heart
drown with antic-
when you offered to
show me the very galaxies that
swirled in my faltering irises,
when you splayed
your fingers against
my spine and urged me
toward the dancing
with your soft willow-whispers
against my foolish ears
scared, I dashed away
like a frightened
lamb in the eyes
of God,
leaving your arms
empty and
while my heart
screamed bloody
murder from within
my rusted prison
Long Poetry or Short Story
Poems will be between 200 and 500 words. Can be any form, though I am best at free verse. Please be descriptive and precise with your request.

xcix. pushing up daisiesWe were laying on your bedroom floor
a nearly empty bottle of cheap wine was sitting
beside us as we barely watched some dramatic sitcom
play on the TV; your head was nestled against my shoulder
and your hand was tracing circles down my arm
as you drunkly rambled about you&me.
he loved me.
You threw your arms in the air with a
frustrated ‘tut’ as I stood there arms crossed
and waiting; all I wanted was an apology but you
stubbornly couldn't see past your ego until
you let your words slip and then the tears started
slipping down my face as my hand slipped from the crook
of my elbow and we both went to bed bruised--
the mark I left on your cheek was just as red as my still crying eyes.
he loved me not
It started with an exchange of 'hello, how are you?'
but turned into a last minute movie night at my place
where we talked more than we actually watched the movie,
which turned into me sitting in your lap,
your lips ghosting towards mine as my heart
nearly lea
verbatimthey say opposites attract and I guess they’re right
because I was attracted to you since the day we met
with those wild green eyes and your alluring words that made
me feel more comfortable in my own skin than
I have ever I felt in twenty years of existence,
you were a foreign taste to me that I began to crave
so insatiably that my angel became my devil’s advocate
and suddenly troubled waters turned into stormy seas
and all I remember are
the long days and hard nights
that were clouded with loud voices and
lots and lots of screaming
and tears so many tears
that i’m surprised i had
any to spare
but in the cacophony  
of clashing words and late night movie dates
we sparked
we ignited
we burned
you were the fire to my gasoline and it became
impossible to wash your ashes from my skin
you were painted on me;
it was our own Mona Lisa except she was frowning,
frowning because one of your hands was around my waist
and the other was pointed towards the sky

Short Stories will be roughly 500 words or less, depending upon how invested I become in the story. Extra words are free of charge if I get a little carried away.

Underneath the StarsShe stood there at the window, silently watching the storm that raged outside. The large droplets of rain splashed against the hard ground as rumbles of thunder echoed through the air. A flash of lighting popped in the distance giving the scene a pale violet glow. She watched as the careless winds pulled at the trees, bending them back and forth, threatening to break their limbs.
She pursed her lips and thought about the irony of the situation. It was if the storm that pursued outside the glass was the same one stirring in her heart. She felt as if she was the one being thrashed about, being bent back and forth, threatening to break apart.
But she knew there wasn’t anything she could do, except let the storm pass.
She sighed. I wonder what he’s doing?
He sat there at his desk, eyes blindly skimming over the pages of work that were scattered about. A textbook stood open at the end of the one desk, passage after passage running along its pag

I stole these from DalekCaanII because I'm done with all my work and they looked fun. let's go. 

i) Would you rather live one life that lasts 1,000 years or live 10 lives that last 100 years each?
10 lives that last 100 years each because then I could live each one differently and experience so many more things
ii) Would you rather use eye drops made of vinegar or toilet paper made from sandpaper?

iii) Would you rather be without elbows or be without knees?
knees. I could still get around if though awkwardly. Not having elbows would blow. 

iv) Would you rather experience a sharp pain in your side each time someone says your name or have a bell sound each time you are aroused?
Sharp pain. People don't say my name that much and a bell would be pretty awkward in certain situations

v) Would you rather have a large 10 inch long belly button that swayed to music or have accordions for legs?
10 in belly button. I never wear crop tops so no one would see it moving. 

vi. Would you rather have to sneeze but not be able to or have something stuck in your eye for an entire year?
Not be able to sneeze. Having something in your eye is unbearable. 

vii. Would you rather have a dragon or be a dragon?
Have a pet dragon. Then you have the best of both worlds. 

viii) Would you rather secretly have sex with a goat or have everyone think you had sex with a goat even though you didn’t?
first one

first one hands down. I already practically live the hairy life (except I do get to shave) and it's not fun. 

x. Would you rather never be able to speak again or always have to say everything that is on your mind?
Never speak again. My thoughts are weird. 
xi. Would you rather be able to read or be able to read minds (but be illiterate)?
Read. I don't wanna know what other people are thinking. I already have to deal with my own thoughts, I don't wanna deal with everybody else's. 

xii. Would you rather be able to speak fluently every language in the world or be the best in the world at something of your choosing?
Fluent. That's be handy af. 

xiii. Would you rather be in prison for five years in solitary confinement or not ever go to prison and not ever become rich?
Second one hands down. Solitary confinement for five years would be rough. 

xiv. Would you rather wear a snow suit in the desert or be naked in Antarctica?
Snow suit. They didn't say if I couldn't take it off later. ;) 

xv. Would you rather change the past or be able to see into the future?

xvi. Would you rather have one sex partner or multiple sex partners?

xviii. Would you rather be on the bottom or on top?

virgin over here but um night. I'm not a morning person. 

xxi. Would you rather bring another person in bed with us or cheat on me?
threesome it is.

um neither? not about that life. 

xxiv. Would you rather have romantic sex or try out some new kinky sex ideas?
por que no los dos?

xxv. Would you rather end a first date with sex or with a passionate kiss?
passionate kiss. We ain't jumping to fourth base. 

xxvi. Would you rather wear a pushup bra all day long, every day or stiletto heels all day long, every day?
push up bra. how is this even a question. Stilettos are feet killers. 
xxvii. Would you rather be told to stop being so sensitive every day or be asked if you are PMSing every day?
PMSing. But I'd probably end up punching somebody in the face either way. 

xxviii. Would you rather get a rash from a poor bikini wax job or have an entire eyebrow accidentally waxed off?
rash. I'd look hella weird with one eyebrow. 
xxix. Would you rather go through a whole day with a very visible panty line or with lipstick on your teeth?
visible panty line. who cares about that anyway? 

xxx. Would you rather have your gynecologist use a speculum that is too large or a speculum that is cold?
cold. It /technically/ wouldn't be painful.

xl. Would you rather eat the same meal for the rest of your life or never use Instagram again?
never use instagram again. I don't even have one. 

xli. Would you rather give up alcohol for a year or give up your smartphone for a month?
