Broken Trail

Word Count: 99

The traveller stared hopelessly at the broken rails. He walked so long, so deep in the forests, so high up the hills… for this? No, he could not go back to the other said of the rails. His “friends” were waiting. After what he’d said to them… no, that was impossible.

“There must be a way out,” he whispered desperately. A little cobbled path down the side. Could be a ditch or a snake’s den. But it could also be an escape, a trail to somewhere new. Besides, it was a beautiful forest to explore. So, he walked on.

I made a little drawing of the traveller to go with the story.

Note: For me, the story is a metaphor for choices we make in life. Sometimes we go on a path to find a dead-end to our goals. We’re scared to turn back in fear of backlash from others. And perhaps, if we look deeper we may find a little outlet that may lead to something bigger.

String On Road: Friday Fictioneer

String On Road

Copyrights: Den of Dreams. Here’s my drawing of one of the three boys, Zya. (:

Three boys on abandoned streets, under sun,
Deserted streets, nothing on sight, just a string on road, a string alone.
“Must be the string of fate.” Said one,
“Nay, isn’t red.” Said another one,
“Might be a shoelace.” said another one,
They kept up their pace, and soon they were gone
In the deepest, darkest parts of streets— run,
They wanted to. But as they spun,
A dark shadow blocked them. Then begun
A futile fight. The shadow won.
A trace was left by the previous victim who never returned,
Stringed together by a string on road, a string alone.


Thank you for reading,

Warmest regards,

So this guy is the ‘you’ in the poem who just gave a nice lecture with his limited knowledge :’)

“Everyone would leave me,” my worries grow,
What others think is something I shall never know,
A let-down? Burden? Distraction? Worry?
No, I ain’t certain, yet I say ‘sorry’,
Until you come up to me and with a smile,
Say, “Just close your eyes, a little while,
Some things are,
The way they are,
And it hurts that you can’t change ’em,
Things are mess at times ‘n you can’t arrange em,
But if there’s three reasons to give up,
I’m give you hundred reasons to stay,
You’ve come a long, long way
Till now, and you’ve a long, long way to go,
You’ll manage somehow, you’ll outgrow
All your worries to be the you wanna be.”
You look at me
And say, “I needn’t eludicate
That you’re life’s a blank slate,
And what you write comes true:
So stop thinking what others’ thinking,
And just be you!”

A little doodle to go with the poem.

This poem is written in the point of view of this boy who calls himself Zya. What do you think of him? And thank you so much for reading.

Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Challenge – Rectify

A big thank you to Sammi for hosting this challenge. Here’s my take on it.

Though I try
To rectify
My mistakes—
To lower those stakes
Built for years
In endless spheres
“Better late than never” they say,
“If there’s a will, there’s a way”
But I’m stuck in dead-end.


What do you think of him?

I know doesn’t make me much sense, but it’s written from the point of view of my imaginary friend, Yhorri (there, I drew him)

Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend ahead~

Sweet Sixteen

So, um, I’m really sorry for being so infrequent, but then, life’s a bit busy. But still, I really, really miss being here because WordPress is totally like my home.

I don’t really know how to word it out but well, but since I’m turning sixteen today, I’d love to say a thank you to all of you.

Meowsome Muffin!

Dearest Muffin,

May this letter find you in good health and spirits! Can I just say you’re the most a-meow-sing and who always makes me feline good?~

Not only that, you’re talented blogger cat and with Steve, you make the purr-fect duo! And you’ve got a strong purr-sonality!

A pity I can’t capture how purr-ity you are, so I imagined you as a human girl too!

You always make my day paw-sitive! Stay as meow-some as you are~!

Lots of love,

Dragon Warrior (or Sophie for you) 🐱 

Late Night: Poem For Hiyori Tono

Been a while since I last posted, but you know, I’ve been more online in my Tumblr but here’s a little poem I’d written from the point of view of one of my favourite fictional characters, Hiyori Tono.

Late Night

Look, I’m sad tonight,
But look, I can’t cry,
I’m just holding myself tight,
My knees to my chest,
I just wanted to be the best,
But I’m worse than the worst,
I’ve lost the thing I needed most.
Love myself? Huh, kidding, aren’t you?
I’m such a letdown to all the few
Who looked up to me.
A failure, a loser, a sucker, you see.
And you thought I can be
A hero?
I’m a total zero tonight.
Let’s just end this fight.
I’m tired of fighting my head.
Tired of all thoughts invading my bed.
Worries
Pretend to be necessary.
Too bad, I’m tricked by ‘em.
Didn’t want treasure, didn’t want fame,
Just wanted love.

The book on self love lies at the corner,
Read it all morning,
Now’s night and I’m mourning
Self-love? Oh thanks for such a sweet lie,
How do I love myself, baby, when I just wanna die?


Have a great day or night ahead.

Warmest regards,

Dragon Warrior 🐉
