Half-nakedOh, Lizzy, honey, what happened to you?Half-naked by hinatakaname
Your parents kept telling you to stay true,
But you didn't, you went with the society,
You drank, smoked and stuff of that variety.
Your little brother's playing games. How childish!
You're a 'smokin hot' lady now, you must be stylish.
You walk around the world and the web half-naked,
You let everyone touch you, as if you were bread, freshly baked.
Your boyfriend's really nice and charming,
The way he loves you is really heart-warming.
You meet another one, you don't love him any more...
Dear Lizzy, has it occurred to you that you are a whore?
'Cause that's what you are, honey; with a mere stare,

Your heart is missing, your eyes are ice,
Your once honey-hair's also paying the price.
Oh, Lizzy, your mum told you to stay away,
But you still went with him on that rainy day,
You knew it was wrong, your stomach was a knot,
But you let it all go when he told you that was hot.
Look, darling, I also told you, true

Editors are necessary. They're like a test run before something gets printed or posted online. The editor is the first person to read it, aside from the writer, and can fix the mistakes before it's shown to the public.
Think of it like a new car design. Before it goes on sale or is even made, the design is created for a specific reason. It's then tested for numerous things before being sold to the public.
Likewise, an editor needs to decide if what they're editing is worth the time. Is there a purpose to the piece? Does it benefit the public or audience? If so, it's then "tested" by various means (such as length, grammar and punctuation, accuracy and fairness, and ethics), and put up against the editor's personal qualities (like patience, time management, decision making, objectivity, accountability, etc.).
The following will detail these means and qualities to show what makes a good editor, specifi
Divorce Is A PlaceWhen you look around your basement, you dont see colors or shapes. You miss the edges, the textures. You dont notice the way sunlight pierces through the windows, casting shadows on the floor. You cant smell the vanilla candle, but you can smell the litter boxes. Youre cold despite the fireplace and you feel the history and the tension that this basement holds within its aged walls.Divorce Is A Place by EllyFiasco
Divorce makes you look at things differently. Its a filter that gets put over your eyes, your heart, even your ears and your tongue. Everything around you looks different, feels different, sounds different, tastes different. You start to see the ownership and shameful importance of objects. Your heart closes and it either beats faster or it stops beating all together. Everything you hear is an accusation, a fight, a fear or an insult. When you taste something, it is bland and irrelevant. You begin making a metaphor out of everything. Each event becomes a turning point, and you
