Waves by Dean Lewis

PROMPT: Lyrics Unsung

There is a swelling storm.
And I'm caught up in the middle of it all.


My hair flies around me in a cloud as the wind breezes past roughly. The waves crash against the shore as I watch the golden sun dip beneath the pink and blue sky. The party behind me roars with the sounds of laughter, rowdy teenage boys, rose-cheeked girls drunk on cheap beer, and the crackle of a large bonfire. I clutch my book close to...

I followed Kronski to his the office, which was like a place where wounded animals go to curl up and die. The elderly women who work there are always nice and are sure to offer me a peppermint as I pass, and it sucks to see their working conditions. There is literally mold growing on the inside of cabinets and a coffee machine that works one half of the time and spits on the user the rest of the time. ...

My Day Sucks: What Else is New?

FREE WRITING

I tried to convince my Dad otherwise all through the night until he finally told me to go to my room. Was I excited? Wasn't I simply overjoyed at being a part of a team and pulling off some crappy newspaper every week for elderly people? Ahh... no, if I'm frankly honest. I didn't want to join the stupid paper and I did NOT want Logan to look too closely at the paper and I didn't want to have to...

Chapter One: Well, My Name Is Billy and I Am Regretting Some Life Choices Right Now

FREE WRITING

So Ears, huh? Nice to have, and I guess my mother wanted a second pair because she had a grip like iron, tugging me to my room. "Charles!" she shrieked shrilly, calling for my father.
My father was a tall, big man with a fists that he loved to hammer on the coffee table when he was rowdy. Quite contrasting to my mother, who had slender fingers that could pick locks. I'd inherited hers, which was dead useful, cause I...

Plant

FREE WRITING

I am a plant. 
Always growing, 
Pushing toward the sun, 
Reaching for the heavens. 
My roots take from the earth, 
And I grow as the sun allows me. 
The rain is a diamond ring given that
I can drink. At times I am overwhelmed 
By the water, and by the flaming sunlight. 
I cannot always bear the trials that the world
Puts on my plate. I am dependent on the stake
Holding my flimsy leaves up, bearing my weight. 
Because...

An Angel I Had the Priviledge To Meet While She Was Here

FREE WRITING

She was an angel with no wings. She was the one who fought for life.
Life was hard for her, no doubt, so hard that thinking of it makes me shake.
What happened to her wasn't fair.
But I suppose if it had to happen to someone then it might as well be someone strong enough.
Like her.
She was so strong.
And so is her memory.
Truly, she was an angel with no wings.

She was a fire that...

The Room to Death

PROMPT: Zoom Out

If eyes could speak, then his crystalline blues would've been shrieking for a saviour. Someone... Anybody... He simply didn't care who... Just somebody...
And yet despite the oozing tears that chugged their way down his sunken, icy cheeks...his gaze was forward. His lips tight. His jaw clenched. A courage that could not be quelled pouring forth from his every limb.
In spite of the metallic chains that sliced holes through his wrists and bound him unsparingly to the bloodied wall...

He had dark eyes
Bald spots were on the rise
A coat and a tie
A smile stunning to the eye

She had straw hair
And light blue eyes with skin so fair
A pair of blue shorts
And a humor that could lap the courts

People couldn't justify it
But the candle had already been lit
For them it seemed a perfect fit
Who cared who was ok with it

It didn't seem like it would work

PROMPT: Zoom Out

Electrons spin in the emptiness, pulled through space by a mysterious force. It is a solitary existence. If they happen to glimpse another electron, the force drags them apart, and they spiral in opposite directions. Like some cultish ritual, the electrons circle a large clump in the far distance; they feel its tug of general positivity, a positivity that pulls on the strongest primal desires of the little negative balls of energy. But the electrons’ predestined orbit will never lead...

Inquiries

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

When people die, and they were in the middle of watching a TV series, do they ever get to find out what happens? 

Also, when people die, do they have to walk around in the clothes they died in forever? What if you died wearing a feather boa, or bike helmet? I figure that would be extremely uncomfortable. 

Is there any place on Earth where someone hasn't died?

Is there any place where no one has walked before you?

don't steal my love, for we will always be rich in each other

How much do I love you?

My love for you is like drawing maps on paper napkins,
me trying to recklessly find the quickest way home, 
to you

I love you so much, I love you one hundred paper napkin maps thrown into the wind 

My love for you knows no bounds
it is never offended
It's like asking someone in the next stall for toilet paper
or borrowing a friends pair of underwear
My love for you is shameless

The Monster in Me

FREE WRITING

She ran as fast as she could. She ran because something was chasing her, and that something was what she feared most; for it was herself. She finally threw the door open, and emerged into the shining sun. She tore through the thick grass and the blazing sunlight until she dropped into a forest. She looked around her out of breath and exhausted. She saw a small stream flowing through the forest and she dropped next to it, bathing her...
