Reasons I Write

PROMPT: Why I Write

Writing a story is like molding a piece of clay. When you first begin, you have a solid ball of clay, then as you start creating the scene and developing the characters, the clay changes shape. As you continue writing and you make the climax of the story, your piece of clay now has that mark of originality that let's everyone know, "Yeah, this is my artwork." Just as you begin wrapping up your masterpiece, the clay has finished it's...

Night Vision

FREE WRITING

The night is full of beating hearts
And music 
So loud, so intense 
Beat after beat
A rhythmic language 
That hides no secrets 

The night is full of lovers
Entangled in each other's grips 
Becoming one
Hearts combined
Hands intwined  

The night is full of the lonely
Lying awake, spread across an empty bed 
Skin crawling
Craving the touch of another 
Tears carve down flushed cheeks 
Tears for the missed 

The night is full of artists 
Their muse being...

Modern Poems for an Old-Fashioned Lover (#10 Petrarchan sonnet)- Picturesque

FREE WRITING

Filtered dyes pooling sea blue and light green,
A photograph rimmed with a border line,
Shares a moment from when we had first dined;
Two tables, a hemstitch cloth draped between,
Silverware I had never before seen,
Glasses filled with a strong, fermented wine,
In the centre, a candelabra shines.
The chuckles, banter, a picturesque scene. 

How we gracefully twirled around the dance floor,
Gentlemen bowed, girls curtsied shyly,
My dress swirling, above the skies I soar,
Violins cease, and...

I think I like you. Poem #1

FREE WRITING

I think, I think I like you.
I've forgotten how to love so excuse me if I can't explain it.

I think even if I did.
Why would you, like me?
You're sweet and kind and funny. 
You never cease to make me smile.

But what are we?
Acquaintances? Friends? More?
Neither.

What will we ever be?
Nothing.
Everything.
Anything?

No one has made me question my sanity as much as you.
I'm trying to solve these feelings; make them...

Greetings from the Sky

PROMPT: Unnamed

I open the door
The morning chill slapping my face 
I sit down on the first step,
Indulging in the presence of such a beautiful hue
Painted and engraved deep into the sky,
But the source, billions of miles in space
Yet the collaboration of colors overwhelms me with it's grace
A feeling of tranquility washes over me

Towards the end of the day
When the stars start brushing their teeth
Preparing for a long watchful night,
The sun sets...

Letter to my younger self

FREE WRITING

I wish I could tell you how hard it was going to be
I wish I could hug you telling you it’s okay
I wish I could be there for you
But I can’t
That doesn’t mean that I don’t love you
I’m living proof that you made it!
So stop being so sad
Times get rough
The going gets tough
And through it all
I’m all you had
I was your hope
Your dream
The person you wanted to...

chaos.

PROMPT: Unnamed

It's the color he wore when he walked into your life

It's the pit in your stomach when the world doesn't make sense

It's the color he taught you to love

It's the silhouette of the mountains that reach up to the sky 

It's the color you felt when you watched him walk away

It's the night gathering you up in its arms



it's the color that broke you.
