and listen to my thoughts. I sleep inside the voids unfilled where new memories form new clots. I see these images in front of me that mar what I wish they were. I reach out for you in the morning only to grab a fistful of air. I strain to live bravely in my definition of that word, where was and is confuse me and want and need are unheard.
Natasha, 24, is a recent graduate at the University of Illinois at Chicago, with a Bachelors of Arts in English and a triple concentration in Creative Writing of Poetry, 18th Century British Literature, and American Literature.
Her passion for English and language is simply undefinable. She believes that language is the base for every significant aspect of our daily lives. It is the root of all communication. Language allows us not only to interact with one another on a basic level, but also it allows us to share our innermost thoughts, feelings, secrets and desires.
Our thoughts and words, both spoken and written, are not always expressed as they should be. She is interested in exploring the planes of language, to examine the intimacy of thought in conjunction with the written word. Ironically, as a society we communicate on so many levels, yet we fail to divulge our deepest longings, especially after our most basic needs are met. However, in some instances, we really are at a loss for words.
