Calm down. Calm down. Calm down. Calm down. Calm down.

“I—need… I need my meds.” Where were they? He could already feel his heart starting to beat faster. His breathing was slowly growing erratic, “W-where are my meds? I-I can’t find them!”

Focus, focus, focus. Ground yourself. Three objects… some books. A chair. A window. Four clothing. My blue shirt. Nike sneakers.

Kei latched onto Stephen's... no, Teff's shoulders for support as he shut his eyes, waiting for the medicine to take effect and waiting for her voice to leave her head. He breathed in and out. Calming breaths. Calm breaths.

“What’s around us, Kei? Come on, talk to me.”

A fake smile and a creature only for him to see.

Tokishima Kei is a young college student, a normal Japanese born  who migrated to America for his studies. However, he wasn't like everybody. Kei suffered from hallucinations and schizophrenia after an incident back when he was in high school that nobody really felt comfortable mentioning.

All he wants is to live a normal life... and yet it still wouldn't leave.

​Description:

Cameron Sanders is the typical high school jerk, but he quickly falls off his throne after his mother dies in a car crash, making him have to live with his abusive father, and he loses a fight, causing his friends turn on him. The only people he has around is this guy who doesn't like him, but pities him enough to stick around, and some person in a closet. For a while, he learns to be okay with that, until that crumbles, leaving him, his buddy Tyler, and the girl he used to bully, Rae, left out on the streets, trying not to be killed.

Poetry collection for Camp Nanowrimo April 2019!

If there's one thing in life that inspires me, that is the trees I see from outside my bedroom window, in the local parks and whenever I go travelling with my family. Each one having a story to tell. Some hundreds of years old. This April collection will finally open up about my discovery of trees to the world. I hope that you enjoy this collection, as much I as I enjoyed writing it!

Tragedy

This is a poem that I was inspired to write about Rosemary Kennedy, a relative of the famous Kennedy family. She had a very sad turn of events in her life and I recommend you read about her. It speaks much to how mental health was back then and how so many were misunderstood or misdiagnosed and treated in that time. Also in my poetry collection "At The Core: Prose and Poetry"
