Emerald Eyes

PROMPT: Monologue

It all started with her. Her auburn hair and emerald eyes that I could feel myself getting lost in every time I looked into them. When you first look at her, it seems as if there's nothing special about her. Like she's just another ordinary girl. 
But then you really see her. All the pain and suffering. All the grief and sorrow she bears all on her own. 

It pulls you towards her, quite violently so. You're desperateto know...

Coconut

PROMPT: Color Swatch

Coconut is the color of the humid and rough part of the world, where the sun shines too much and the rain never comes. It reminds you of the sound of seagulls and the smell of saltwater. Like eggshell, coconut is smooth and calming. A soft, cool color that makes you feel at home.

The Beginning of the Endings

FREE WRITING

Someone was stealing the endings from the stories.

Nobody in our world noticed, not at first. Our children had enough cartoons and movies and picture books to keep the "once upon a times" and "happily ever afters" fresh in their minds, and our adults seldom paid attention to such things anyway. No, our world remained peaceful and idyllic, with not even an inkling that anything could possibly be wrong.

But somewhere far, far away, past the edges of our universe...

Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ

FREE WRITING

Each wood board is a step deeper into the promised land,
Sun smiles over the charming seaside town,
Winds whisper age-old secrets,
As it whirls through the ruins of the Casino.

Bicycle wheels spinning like a ferris wheel,
Grazing the eroded floor of teal and coral tiles,
A mermaid giggles beside me,
Smirking at all the more she knows than me.

Inside these two remaining walls lies an untold story,
A story of glamour and bliss and endless summers,

Nerves

FREE WRITING

Her teeth bit her tongue, her lips not hiding this action. Those lips quivered being the fifth feature of her face to be riddled with nerves. The first were her eyes - the colour was yet to be discovered on the colour chart yet could hardly be seen as her pupils were the equivalent of a 5 cent coin. The second was her nose – it just noticeably twitched like a rabbit’s and it was as adorable as it sounds....

Slumped alone over the great table, long mahogany hair splayed in every direction and half asleep from a cocktail of boredom and exhaustion, his blue-green eyes were like a still pond in the deep woods. And when she joined him at the table, his eyes sparkled like a great ocean, teeming and pulsating with life, as he rose to greet her.

ARE LISTEN! THE NEW FACE OF PUNK?!

Listen! is a band that focuses on important matters with their music and blends a loud, upbeat sound with meaningful and intricate lyrics. They make their songs catchy whilst delivering their views on matters like mental health and war in a way that's pleasant to listen to.

Falling Stars

FREE WRITING

I got myself thinking about falling stars recently. People prefer calling them shooting stars, possibly to hide the thought that for a star to shoot across the sky, they must fall into a planet's atmosphere first. Matter of factly speaking they aren't even stars to begin with. They are meteorites, bits of unwanted rock left floating in space until they are sucked by some random planet's gravitational pull.

I wonder why people wish on shooting stars.

The worst thing that...
