i.
    just a mimicry, really; uncompromisingly desperate to shine.


ii.
    counterfeit & clockwise, tasting words on her unworthy tongue.


iii.
    with a dysfunctional mind & apocryphal dictionary, she cannot clone it all.


iv.
    "say anything," the pen whispers as she trembles among ink-scented fraudulence.


v.
    but she just laughs & plays the part, forgetting what the pages told her: "truth is stranger than fiction."
Sometimes, I really hate writing.

Why do you hate writing? D:

Yep, this is the life of a writer, alright; though my mind kept switching back and forth between this being a writer and an actor/actress, the first part the person playing their roles, the second the person who wrote them. dunno why :shrug:

yey

but I can really relate to this poem - I feel that my styles, writing or drawing, are heavily influenced by others. like, the two oems i just submitted sound like a bad version of your style, almost.

This resonates with me, but I don't think I understand it on a conscious level. :? :brainless: :meditation:
And I too sometimes hate writing. :shakefist:

Just think of it as my way of saying when my creativity is gone, I feel like I try to copy others'.

I see promise here, and even if it isn't perfect I kinda like it the way it is. Wabi-sabi and all that. :)
