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.

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!
