Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

PROMPT: Open Prompt

The first time I tried a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it was like being in love all over again. All my life, I've enjoyed art and other forms of creation, where I often don't overthink why I like something in the first place. And then after a while, things started to get a bit more complicated. Art suddenly wasn't something to enjoy, and become something that demanded definitive analysis and every chance at scrutiny. This and that where it...

the attic

FREE WRITING

I went up to the attic today
To see all the things that were stocked
Hoping to be discovered someday
By the future that lived in this house.

I found my toys all boxed up
Stuff I'd outgrown
I found my crib and my baby clothes
All in the corner, with layers of dust.

I opened a box to find
A magnificent blue dress that once belonged to my grandmother
Strewn with pearls and diamonds,
Like stars in the night...

As I walked across the street, I felt a cold shiver run down my spine. My scarf flew away from my face. The darkness suffocated my body like a thick blanket. The leaves blew in the wind and slid on the sidewalk behind me. Occasionally, I thought I heard footsteps following. I wanted to turn around, but I was too scared. I passed a streetlight. And that was when I saw them.
A little girl stared up at me. She...

Summers:
Kishan wakes up with the smell of rotis.
He came out of his slum, and noticed;
His mother was garnishing them with salt, and serving with water
To his father, before he leaves and the day gets hotter.

He hugged his parents and asked
If he was also going to do the task.
His mother cuddled him and said,
“Have food first, or else heat will turn your head red.”

He tore the roti and enjoyed his mother’s love, ...

You're the fertility in the soil, oxygen in the fire.
You are the sun in the sky, snake in reptiles.
You are second arm of a trident.
Your wings were made of fire.
To carry your legacy is the only desire we have.

You left a month after we met
To the borders of our country
I hoped and prayed to God for you to return
And the months after that
Felt like sitting on a lighted pyre.

A month wasn't enough for us
We had a future
I was looking forward to the day when
I'd be in white and the church doors will open
And we both will say
'I do'.

But all I received was a coffin
And a flag,...

your words are empty flasks of hot air to my parched palate

you can sip my salty tears from your fractured crystal glass
bathe in the blood you wrought
when your skies are the hazy red of my nightmares

Meagan watched from beside the door frame with a cocked head, "So...you're picking the lock?"

    The girl smiled and lent against the cell wall, "You know, you don't really strike me as a professional criminal."
    Roland glanced towards the heavens. He let out an exasperated sigh, "That's what makes me so good at it."
