The Shine of the Moon

I believe only sad

people understand the love

for the moon.

the true beauty

it holds.

the secrets it’ll never

spill. for the moon

is a sad soul’s

best friend.

Hello, my name's Nicole, I'm 24 years old, graduated from California State University of Long Beach with my major in English: Creative Writing, and a minor in Sociology. I love reading and writing, it's my passion to write whether it is fictional or personal. I started writing fiction 4 years ago, but last year started moving to poetry and non-fiction. I believe that there is a rawness in writing about yourself and your experiences, I chose to write to let others know that whatever they are suffering with that they are not alone, I have and still suffer/ struggle. Its okay to be vulnerable, to be heard.
