Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Hi there. My name is Autumn. I wear socks that don't match. I enjoy hot showers. I sing Phineas and Ferb songs. I eat too much sweet food. I am a girl. I have two eyes. And I write words:

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments I think this is one my bestest poems. Or, at least, it's pretty darn good for something I wrote in ten minutes during seventh period:

EDIT
LAWL, that is not one of my best poems.

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Thank you, all!

GUYYYSSSS! HI, I LIKE POETRY. I WROTE THIS TODAY:

Eyes blue like the sea—
The dark, storming sea
with its jagged waves
being sliced by lightning

Locks pale blonde like the moon—
The sad crescent moon
cut to the thinnest sliver
clouded by rumblers promising rain

Gentle features marred
by her frozen stare
Piercing through my being
it carries more weight than a broken heart

I want to take her hand
but I am afraid
The walls give an impression
of suspicion, hatred, and pure suffering

But I know this is nothing more
than a façade, careful and wary
Inside she needs to be hugged close
and her hair begs for a stroking

Her life has been six years
most will never experience
Those thunderstorms of hers
hold a secret. A story.

This girl has seen death
which has also tickled the tips of her toes
three times too many
for her young soul

This girl has seen blood
Gang fights forever haunt
a past, beautifully gruesome, with which
she was so generously gifted

This girl has seen weaponry
and heard shots ringing
out into the blackest midnights
and chilling laughs they spawned

This girl has seen rape and poverty
This girl has seen murder and loss
This girl has seen despair, fear, pain
This girl has seen far too much

This is why I take
her frail, abused body into my arms
And when I feel her shake and cry
I do not let go

--

If you liked that, then you should read more! I updated my collective poetry to only the good ones or okay ones. Well, the better ones:

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments This one really isn't that good, but I'mma post it anyhow, 'cause that's just what I do. Behold (or not), Handprint:


The crack brings another mark
Blazing scarlet
Handprint
This is different than its ancestors
The others are purple, black, yellow
They line my arms like a storybook
This one born three weeks ago
I forgot to say “Good morning”
This one a reminder
That I never put lettuce on his sandwich
Again
“Are you listening to me?”
His face contorts into a mask
A mask of fury, rage, and intimidation
Red like his
Handprint
“Answer me!”
I shrink into the couch in fear
My body is trembling
My eyes are watering
My head is throbbing
But I force out a whimper and
A weak nod
“Why are you so stupid?!”
His mouth continues to pour
Waterfalls of obscenities
As tears burn rivers
Down my cheeks
He continues to hit me,
Jerking me out of
My ball of confinement
And smashing me to the floor
I feel naked, raw, and vulnerable
As I lie eaglespread
I wait for him to calm down
As he usually does
Gradually, the first begins to fade
But there are still more
Handprints
All down my arms, my legs,
I feel one biting my back
Like an uninvited parasite
Then it comes
He sits down on the couch
The coloration of his face
Returns to its normal
Pale and deathly
White
They come less frequently
Waiting twelve minutes
Then twenty
He is still talking
Hatred in his eyes
His hand reaches for
The bottle
Again and I cringe
He sees and raises a brow
“You don’t like me drinking do you?”
He calls me a name
I cry
“Stop crying, you @&*!#”
I try
“#@&! it!”
He is angry again
Down comes his blow
Leaving on my arm a
Handprint
He raises his hand again
But I am saved
“I’m home!”
Her voice comes as I hear the door
Pushed open
Footsteps follow
He quickly throws me a sweatshirt
From underneath him
And I slip into it, escaping up the stairs
“Hey, honey,”
I hear his voice
Falsely sweet
Deceptively caring
I disappear into the shower
Sure that for this I will again
Feel the wrath of his
Handprint
When nightfall comes
I fall into bed
I know tomorrow will bring
My boyfriend to the door
A drive to school in which
I am tense but he does not notice
Fraudulent conversations with friends
They do not notice
Nobody can see past my empty eyes
Because I have covered up the
Handprints
Nobody knows that
Daddy hits me

~

Kim Crowley (kimcrow) | 1893 comments That is absolutely amazing. And sad of course. I love the way you describe the bruises near the beginning. I can see the story playing out in my head as I read it :)


message 17: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Well, thank you :D


message 18: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments GUYS. Goodreads has notifications now! I got one about someone who liked my chapter! It was so surprising.... How long have they had those? ;P

What do you mean? EMail notifications or the notifications on the home page? The ones on the homepage are new.


message 20: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Homepage. Because I set the emails not to come ;P


Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) Ah yes. They're new. :D


message 22: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments I was so fascinated by them. T_T Fail.


Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) I don't really like them. o.O


message 24: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Don't know if I like 'em yet or not. But for some reason I keep getting e-mails :P


message 25: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments So I wrote a short story a couple weeks ago. I think...it's okay. Would you like to read it? It's about a girl and a guy. But it has a sad ending...in my opinion. Anyway, here it is:

http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/2...

P.S. It is not edited. And the girl's part is italicized on my computer I was just too lazy to do so on Goodreads. :P


message 26: by Autumn (last edited Dec 07, 2010 01:39PM) (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments From my untitled novel.


Waiting

One day, two days, three days
Four
I wait and wait, then wait some
More
On day one he gives the
Kiss
Without some more, days two and three still
Bliss
By day four thoughts start to
Wander
Day five and I can’t take this much
Longer
Still the sun comes
Again
Leaving my heart to wonder
When
The seventh day passes without
Event
‘Tis day eight and I’m over
It
Or at the very
Least
Pretending to
Be

The Playground of Autumn....sounds like a fun place...


message 29: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments I suppose so. I'm here alone rather often as you can see from the posts ;P


message 30: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Yeah, I totally made that up.


message 31: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Oh, I emailed the newest copy a few minutes ago and I've yet to write more because I'm all distracted. XP You can read it there. I don't know if I want to post more. It's so bad D:


message 32: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments Yes I did! That was my reply! :D


message 33: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments 'Salright. THAT'S WHY I PUT IT HERE! To subtly suggest you read the rest without actually saying it XD

The beginnign was decent, I guess, but it's HORRIBLE now. 25000 words of introduction before the plot even strats. Ahhh.

I wrote a new poem and that awesomesauce thing up there is known as a link. If you click it you can read it. Or you can read it here. But if you click it then you can read my other poems and like it.

Not Today
When I walk through that door
He hides alone in the corner
Empty eyes render me invisible
Two broken mirrors of his soul

I take his hand and say come with me
Together we can fly far, far away
Breaking clouds, crossing overseas
But he shakes his head no, not today

There must be more I can do
I stand by his side helplessly
Praying he just might listen to
More begging and desperate pleas

I take his hand and say come with me
Together we can fly far, far away
Breaking clouds, crossing overseas
But he shakes his head no, not today

I cannot let this go
I have to try one more time because
He’s my best friend
My entire world

Squeezing his hand, please come with me, please
Together we can fly far, far away
Breaking clouds, devouring the seas
But he cries and says no, I can’t today

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments I hope so. I'm trying to get this thing to actually go somewhere...


message 46: by Elliott (new)

Elliott | 22636 comments Mod
What are you working on?


message 47: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments The novel I tried to write during December. It's such a fail. *cries*


message 48: by Elliott (new)

Elliott | 22636 comments Mod
It is not! It's just your first draft! No first draft is perfect. Just keep pressing on through it and then you can make it better later. *hugs*


message 49: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (flwurautumn) | 4987 comments *hugs back*
Thanks. I have some hardcore editing to do. I already have some scenes in mind and stuff. So I just need to finish...

Awesome! Write, write, write! Go, go, go!
