OriginalClamurai, The Reader
I am an aspiring writer and game developer. I'm taking a quick break from working on my coding to get some practice with writing. I'm very interested in developing works on different platforms. I've already learned some of the unique challenges and opportunities of a choose your own adventure in the short amount of time that I've been on this site, so I'm excited to see where this will lead.
I'm interested in fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. I'm very interested in the games on the site and I am hoping to have a contribution sometime this year, though real life can be quite demanding.
How can one balance single parenthood with trying to find true love in today's age? Can someone who has been through a toxic relationship learn to trust again? Join Jacob and Lena, two middle-aged people diving into love, as they search, in one another, for their other half.
Can a man, who has lost the love of his life, find love again? Can a woman, who has lost confidence in herself, rediscover what it is that makes her strong? Control both sides as their hearts grow fonder and they learn what it means when you open your heart to a stranger.

Honestly, I do get that feeling. So you don't have to feel like it's just you feeling it. Lots of people get insecure. But, you know what? That's okay that you feel that way. That energy is going to be there no matter what, you can't fight it. What you can do is figure out if that energy is going to be a negative or a positive. I'm extremely self-critical, but I use that to figure out how I can do better. Rather than a weight to drag me down, I use it as a motive for improving.
Yes, other people are going to write better; others will write worse, too. You know who will write better than you? You, with more experience. The only way to get there is to do that writing, put your work out there, and learn from your experiences. It's okay if you aren't confident in your work, because you can always get better. Just give yourself the chance to grow, the first step is always the hardest. You aren't alone, either. Like I've said before, there is a wealth of resources and experience here for you to tap into.
So don't be so hard on yourself; it's okay to feel that way, as long as you use it to move forward.

She's wearing that sexy, black corset from your wedding night. She's dancing to a song, but you don't hear it. Her hips sway seductively; her hand trails down the bedpost. As she turns toward the window, you exhale deeply.
Clear sight picture.
Slow, steady pressure.

Perhaps, but the two colors do in fact look good on the eyes I'm talking about.

Eyes of olive and chocolate lock with mine.
I see fire inside; I see a pain.
A kind word, a kind gesture soothes our hearts.
We need one another so deeply it hurts.
With soft kisses, I brush away her hair.
I look into those eyes and see our love.

"Look at you, crying. You thought you were the predator, but you're just another victim. Tell me what you said. 'Come here, bitch.' Here I am. You think you're afraid? Wrong. Let me show you what a real monster is," the little girl said, black tar dripping from her eyes.

The real question would be 'By whom?' and where you answer it would make a difference.

I like your interpretation, it's romantic.
