[Thoughts on Writing] Trying To Combine Disparate Ideas

When I try to combine disparate story concepts (my troll character and my superhero character), it almost feel like oil and water, or bubbles that don’t stick to each other.

Poem: I Wish You Knew Me Now

I wish you knew me now.
Back then, I was naive
easy to bully,
manipulate.

I wish you knew me now.
Back then, I was vulnerable,
unskilled at saving
myself.

I wish you knew me now.
Back then, I was angry,
imagining fictional
wrongs.

You can’t know me now.
Sometimes I think of you.
Then I smile, and
stop.

Truth in Four Sentences

To someone that I used to know.

I don’t think of you every day.
You aren’t in my life; that’s not new.
Years have passed since I last loved you.
I’ll still cry when you pass away.
