In My Dream (Part 01)

via | via

I had a dream.
A dream I spent sitting in the tall grass by the riverbank
sketching the birds that played there.
The boy was in my dream again.
He was sleeping, because he didn't do it well enough at night.
The sunlight was trying the tickle him awake,
caressing his ribs.
They were bruised, like they always were.
Blue.
I wanted to sketch him, in my dream.
But I was afraid he'd see it
so I didn't.
I was shy, in my dream.

------------

A naughty-little brain child crawled her way out of my head and scribbled on the walls with this one. Basically it's inspiration for a story that I can't stop thinking about. Like, seriously. It's got my head under siege. I need to stop and focus. But focus is a runaway beast.

love,
abbiee

  1. NEW IDEAS ARE THE BEST AND ALSO THE WORST. I'm like *writes novel like a good writer* *plods away* *goes to sleep* *dreams amazing dream* *wakes up* *I GOTTA WRITE THIS* *gets a bunch of new ideas for new idea* *gets all pumped up about it* *opens up computer* *groans because remembers that I have a current WIP that must be done FIRST* *sadly files new ideas away for another day* *behind the long list of "new ideas" that are already there*

    1. EXACTLY. Oh my goodness. You said it, girl. And then for some reason, the story that I've forbidden myself to write is the story I NEED TO WRITE RIGHT NOW. xD It's a problem.

  3. *cracks up at Hannah* so true.

    Writing is hard. Sometimes. Like it's so easy but at the same time it isn't and then YOU WANT GOOD WORDS but they don't work and just *runs around in circles basically*

    Wondahful post, Abbie girl. *grins*

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
