Diagnosis Man-baby

I understand why you don't trust easily. She broke you, she left you, she crumbled your fragile heart and now you keep it hidden from the world. After 18 months of being friends I'm starting to wonder if you'll ever open up completely at all? Are you that damaged that you can't let anyone in? If so, I'm not your girl. So go now, before my heart gets more attached.

Occasionally you show your empathy, your deep emotion. Your compassion for others and ability to drop what you're doing to help shines bright. But it's all on the surface. If there is a question too personal, you back down. You shut down and run away. Conflict isn't your friend, and compromises aren't easily obtainable.

I'm many things, but a therapist isn't on the list of things I am... especially when I don't see a happy end game. So here's to you working your shit out on your own, because from now on my counseling and advising services are closed. Please tell your new life advisor about your issues up front, so they don't get overly invested like I did. You disguise that shit well, but when it comes out it's like a festering wound.

Your diagnosis for the time being is Man-baby with bruised ego and inability to express true feelings. I don't mind meaningless sex, but I do mind it with my best friend. So I'm out. (That includes the sex, too).

Imagination

It is not as beautiful as it used to be, holding hands, gazing into your eyes for the fun of it, we are friends who have found a deeper interpretation of friendship outside love and lust.

The unusual play mate I always wanted and the willingness to be available at odd times is all that matters, I was just a lonelier who really did not have anything to offer but then you ran into my life and stole the loneliness and made us a companion without love and fear of attachments.

There is no missing rib as good as the one you broke for me to share. Oh! How beautiful your smile is, and when you walked in you change everything I knew in the time past, you are a friend who is an outright definition of love.

You are special and this is one I ain't giving up on.

Motion of Time

What am I if not the sum of my parts?

What are my parts if not moments with you?

Memories replayed to the point that the reality died, many, many years ago.

Loss is a mentor in the cruel motion of time.

Time is an egoless pit scratching the life from your heart.

Joy is the echo of a sunlit day warming the cave left gashed in my mind.

Minds are a thing best left to die.

Try not to delve into their workings.

Try not to work with their company, alone.

Write a very short story about honesty. Check the description for an extra detail.
Written by desmondwrite in portal Fiction

Honest Seafood

My sister will not eat seafood. She is a brown-haired, brown-eyed girl, all inherited from my mother, and she is picky, an inheritance from no one. Or perhaps a suspicious ancestor—maybe the caveman who ate the poisoned mushroom?

We (the boys) are wide, sandy, blue-eyed beasts. We'll eat anything, be it a bagel or small dog. It's that cavalier attitude Mom rewarded with meals that stretched the definition of food. She was not the best cook, and sometimes pizza would be recast as "lumps," or toast as "carcinogens with a side of yeast." Nor was she the most honest about ingredients. She wanted us to eat, after all.

So, Sis found herself in a constant state of seafood consumption. She'd eat tacos and realize afterward: "These were fish tacos!" She'd eat red beans and rice to discover soggy shrimp.

My poor sister. She's had more sushi than a sushi chef.

Chapter 1 of Time Forgotten
Written by Lonz1234 in portal Novel Writing

A Note To The Reader (Or More Accurately a Disclaimer)

I recently read an article that stated that Stephen King wrote 2,000 words a day, and it got me thinking of myself. I know that at times I can become complacent in my writing, or go through writer's block when it comes to my more important projects which causes me to go days without writing. I realized by not writing daily, I was depriving myself of precious time practicing my craft. So I decided to start a project that I could see myself working on even on those days when I'm feeling uninspired. This is that project, less cohesive story with a cut-and-paste plot than meandering epic that travels wherever my mind takes it. I plan on making this a very experimental work, like a sandbox where I could throw any literary plaything in hopes that some stick. For this reason and others, I expect for most to bear some quarrel with what this project could become, but I will be much less bothered by that than harsh criticism on my other works because it's a stress-free project that I'm writing for practice more than anything else. That being said, as always, I'm extremely open to criticism of any kind or any length from anyone. I'm sure along the way the question of why I'm publishing this on Prose might come up and to that question, I answer thusly, "Because I can!" I hope that I, or any reader, is able to see my steady progression as a writer and maybe even able to derive some pleasure from reading what I have to write. 

If anyone makes it this far, happy reading!

Write the longest grammatically sound alliteration you can possibly muster. The longest such alliteration's author wins $150 if, and only if, this challenge receives at least 300 entries. Editing is allowed.
Written by seanarturo in portal Words

Someone Said Sentences Should Stay Short

Someone suspiciously strange, somewhat secretive (surely surreptitious) solicited stupendous sentences somehow sensible - sustaining scrutiny - stretching such staggeringly spun spans so society should sense shocking, stupefying, surprising, stunning, startling speechlessness such so someone shall say such spun sentences surely stole speech stealthily, seemingly suspending synapses sidelined subsequently since seeing strained spreads so smoothly, swimmingly, steadily struck (surely spurning simplicity); someone surely superb, somewhat spectacular (seemingly smart) scrawled swiftly such special strings somehow sensible - specifically shrewd - stretching sagaciously solely so society shall stay shocked, surprised, stunned, startled, spell-cast, (simply speechless) seeing stuff said so sublimely (surely seductively) somehow stated in a drabble.

Someone suspiciously strange, somewhat secretive (surely surreptitious) solicited stupendous sentences somehow sensible - sustaining scrutiny - stretching such staggeringly spun spans so society should sense shocking, stupefying, surprising, stunning, startling speechlessness such so someone shall say such spun sentences surely stole speech stealthily, seemingly suspending synapses sidelined subsequently since seeing strained spreads so smoothly, swimmingly, steadily struck (surely spurning simplicity); someone surely superb, somewhat spectacular (seemingly smart) scrawled swiftly such special strings somehow sensible - specifically shrewd - stretching sagaciously solely so society shall stay shocked, surprised, stunned, startled, spell-cast, (simply speechless) seeing stuff said so sublimely (surely seductively) somehow stated in a drabble.

Eye-Am

Im going to tell you all that I know. Understand first that I only know and accept what is empirical and absolute, not as communicated by any person or institution of personhood, but as related to me by the particular environment in which I find myself. I am not going to communicate to you an idea, for an idea is no more than an orderly dream. I'm going to tell you what I know, and I only know the Truth as my senses relate that Truth to me; thus, I tell you only what my eyes see clearly.

My eyes are blue just as the sky is blue. My left pupil is at times a square, at times an hourglass, at times it is round like your own. These statements are facts, though facts are not always what they may seem. Neither my eyes nor the sky is ACTUALLY blue. Both are illusion caused by a phenomena known to physics as Rayleigh Scattering.

I assure you, despite the Blue, they sky over your head is darkness rising to infinity.

This is not poetry nor is it mystic vision. What I will tell you is All that i know and I know no more or less than this:

There is no God.

There are no gods collected as God.

There is no goddess.

There is no savior of the faith.

There is no faith.

There is no religion -

No science.

No philosophy.

There is no right way nor wrong way, in and of itself, of going about the business of your life

No good to perceive, nor is their evil -

for what we determine to be good is just as likely as not.

A little girl saves a butterfly from a stalking cat. "Good" we say to the child, as the very next flutter of the butterfly's wings sets into motion events causing a tsunami in Indonesia.

Such a scenario is absurd unless you're a meteorologist.

Cause and effect.

This is what theologians try to say when they speak of 'The Will of the God'.

There are only two varieties of human existence -

the known

and the unknown.

What is it to be known?

And just what is it that is doing this knowing?

That which Knows is a Self embodying all selves and Knowing all creatures.

A Self moving all created selves from the beginning of all movement.

You might say this Self is Nature. You might say this Nature is anthropomorphic.

But both assertions would be misguided.

The Self that knows all selves is reflected in its individual manifestations, therefore, the smaller selves behave in a similar fashion -

they are, as is said,

'made in His image'.

All of humanity understands the fact of this Self in Existence.

From the beginning of our humanness we have understood it. The anthropologists refer to pervasive knowledge as being 'a cultural and historical universality'.

Think of a shadow trying to discern the object that cast itself. Not liking its place in this relationship, eventually the shadow came to believe that shadowness is object and object is shadowness. The only complexity in regards to the reality of Self is in the confusion of this inversion. Shadows speak in their own peculiar languages, but Object speaks in a Language of Pure Awareness. This is Self. Self is All-Awareness.

If i tell you that I am the God you will not except this as fact. But if you understand that God is you we shall recognize one another.

The choice is a simple one. It is not what actions we choose or what gods we should follow. It is not what we will make of our lives or how we should earn our livelihoods.

It is, rather, are we to be our selves or are we to be our Self?

Are we the beaters of our hearts or is our Heart Beaten?

Is life what we make of it or is Life Made for us to Be?

Is there knowledge outside Self or is Self Knowledge?

There is no age nor ending. Time is an expanding orb which burst forth from a pinhole in an Other-Side. Every moment in time is to move. And to Move is all-ways towards Expansion. If you believe yourself sitting still it is of no importance.

Do this and you will understand what I'm saying to you. Go outside and stand in the grass and look at your feet on the Earth. Seeing that your feet are where they are, know that the ground is spinning your body at a rate of 1000 miles per hour. Know too that your body is hurling itself around the Sun at a speed of 67,000 miles per hour. At the same time know that the entire galaxy is traveling your body outwards towards the unknown at a rate 1.3 million miles an hour.

You have never been still.

You are not feet on ground.

You are not earth spinning.

You are not sun hurtling.

You are not galaxy outwards through space.

You are not space.

You are not even you.

You are exactly only

Self in Place -

and I will Love you

Everywhere you are.

Musings on The Transmuted

As the first part of my novel draws to a close I thought it would be fitting to write a little bit about what the book is, the plans I have for it, and what the rest of it will look like so that anyone who isn't reading it could see this and possibly find the story interesting. 

So first a word on how the book came to be. I always wanted to write and I've been trying to think up an idea for a novel for a long time. This summer, when I would have nothing to do but write, I found would be as fine a time as any to begin a novel. For a long time, I was clueless for ideas but knew what type of book I wanted to make. I am a huge fan of high literature and the work of the Lost Generation while I also knew that I wanted to write something revolutionary in some ways because that's where the best work comes from, but again I was without an idea for a story plan. I know there are many writers on this site that know how it feels to have a yearning to write but not knowing where to start and that feeling followed me day and night for a long time this summer. Thankfully, an incredibly simple idea hit me over the head, "write about what you know!"With this information, I devised a rough idea for what The Transmuted has transfigured itself into. I decided to write about the one thing I knew because I experienced it: heartbreak. 

The Transmuted is at its core a story about heartbreak. We live in a society now where everything seems disposable and changeable, but certain things like love, true metaphysical love is still tethered to the human experience. The problem is we can't control who we love which can be problematic when the people we love, love other people. This is Michael's problem and mine as well. He loves one person truly but since she is with another, he must push his feelings down and try to see beyond it. The first part of the novel focuses mainly on this with Michael turning to Tinder and casual hookups to fill the hole of a love unfulfilled. 

After Part 1, there'll be an Interlude which will be a seen of the post-high school malaise of a young single man. It'll basically function as a long chapter that will get Michael from high school to college.

The second and third part of the novel will focus on Michael moving to other parts of his life, college and young adulthood. This part will focus more on Michael's other interest and his social experiences with the shadow of love always looming ominously overhead. The most immediate of these interest is Michael's own writing career which he properly begins and builds up, with a diverse mix of reception and praise.

I think the work is going quite well and I know some people on the site have also taken a liking to it. So if you have any interest in it, I would really encourage picking it up. Also if you're reading it and enjoying it, don't be afraid to show or tell others!
