big and tall, sturdy and strong, which I wanted you to be
Cụ Rùa to the Hoàn Kiếm or Sasquatch to the Sequoia?
Are you there, where I need you the most, remaining faithful?
Don’t call or text, whisper sweetly in my ear.
Soft-spoken words always held the most meaning, subtle, yet clairvoyant if applied correctly.
Everything believed to be normality is a reoccurring fantasy,
The liver was once the origin of emotion. The world has a hepatoma.
Michael D. Franklin started writing at the age of 17. He noticed how passionate his friends became once they discovered they had the power to create their own worlds. He wanted the same escapism, and began sharing many of his ideas with them. They offered critiques and influence, which allowed him to practice crafting his multiple worlds. His practice of writing often includes eating snacks; sense writing itself causes him a pleasurable stress. He is currently an undergrad at California State University, Northridge majoring in Humanities. He is part of creative writing circle and blog, which has published two books and is in his senior year.
