PROMPT: Letter Writing

To: Emetophobia

I am thinking of you again, as always. You, the ever-present, unpleasant roommate -- at best. How have you been? It must've been at least three minutes since I last saw you. You know how I've been.

When I lie awake at night, staring at the swirly patches of ceiling, I think of you. I wish I had time to think about my future, but, you are always the priority. Why even consider college? You won't be happy,...

Rain

FREE WRITING

Drip. Drop. The sound of rain. It is a familiar sound and comforting for many. The scent of damp earth. The way it feels to reach your hand out from under the umbrella or stick out your tongue and try catch the unpredictable droplets. These are my favourite feelings in the world.

We know a great deal about rain. How it is calm and revitalising yet wild and destructive. How it isn't really the tears of a cloud-dwelling divine being...

7 Things That Should Exist

PROMPT: Enumeration

  1. Atlantis. Hidden civilization inhabiting the middle of the ocean. A place filled with rich, ancient history that has yet to be discovered. A place like this should exist, not just for my intellectual and childish whims, but because of what it would mean for human civilizations. It would be the biggest thing since sliced bread. 
  2. Santa Claus. This man is a classic. He's sweet, caring, jolly, and he loves kids. If this man was real, no kid would be left...

The Forest.

FREE WRITING

Our encounters are not the same.
Spasmodic through the span of time. 
I ask myself if I still know you.
I feel betrayed having you near my proximity.
It feels like a burden has been placed on my back. 
So heavy, that I can't escape.
Feeling like being lost in a forest,
A forest that I can easily get tangled, and trapped by the many vines that are around me
Trying to escape, until I see you.

I have a job that doesn't reward me with monetary income. A very difficult job that is mine from birth to death. The job to be the family's outsider.

I am supposed to be the baby who cheers everyone up, the one who is innocent, the one everyone can lie to and play pretend with....

The phone rings 
We groan and put up all of our favorite things 
Soon his little face appears at the door 
His scrawny body hungry for love to his core 
We get him settled in our home 
But it's always a hard change for those who roam
We have a decision that each of us has to make 
For us to block him out for our own sake 
Because we know he will be ripped away 
There is nothing we...
