Golden Labour

FREE WRITING

Hurry! hurry- the bells quick too-
For the freedom of the country be,
My, the might- the cries
Of brotherhood and of liberty!

Faces of the younger ones
Make true fears to the old-
But however may you try,
You can't turn everything,
Into gold.

Because we are determined,
And I shall- lead you,
To a place which is free,
For you to be,
Jingled memories! finer hands,
Which do not hard work,
But labour lands.

Loads upon the back, ...

Insight

FREE WRITING

This noose I tie 
I start to see 
I want to die 
But is this really me

I start to sigh 
I come down on one knee 
I start to wonder why 
The missing twinkle of my eye

She left me to cry 
All the times I started to plea 
The only way to forget you is to be high 
I wish to be set free

My condolences

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Disturbing, 

The way I felt when you looked at me. 

Disgusting, 

The way she treated me. 

Miserable,

The way I felt day after day. 

To Hell with it all! 

I stopped caring about the creature I've become. 

Intimacy, 

The experience I was deprived. 

The predicament must end,

I am a monster. 

Therefore, I thought  of only one solution: 

Death. 

My deepest apologies, for I must go. 

My blossomed freedom awaits.

I remember, your hands in mine,

That felt like a tale tale as old as time. 

I remember, your lips on me,

As satisfying it was to be. 

I remember, you screaming at me in frustration,

About my wanting of liberation. 

I remember, you leaving,

As the the tears started streaming.

I remember, your hesitance,

As if you still wanted my presence. 

I remember, you left without a trace,

With me feeling like a disgrace. 

I remember, the time that...

Lungs

FREE WRITING

I somehow find myself holding my breath,
When you walk through the door.
I find my eyes wandering,
Over towards your face.
Loss for words,
For breath.
Lungs,
Left empty.
You leave me,
Gasping for air.
The release of breath,
It leaves my chest shaking.
I make sure you're not looking,
As I try to regain my breath.

The First Time I Cried

PROMPT: I Remember

I remember the first time I cried. I remember the exact hour of the exact day. I remember the way my father hung his head, how he looked at me. I remember him staring, just standing there and staring at me, he couldn't look away. I remember when he leaned down and asked me a question I knew he already had the answer to. I remember how when I answered, he closed his eyes, real slow. I remember how he...

Alone Again

FREE WRITING

The smell of death was in the air that day.
Not to everyone, but for those who smelled it, overwhelmingly strong.
The family of the deceased gathered round, huddled close,
Each feeling inside that this particular death might not have been such a bad thing.
And feeling hopelessly guilty for thinking so.
None could bring themselves to share their immoral thought.
Instead, they masked their shame under a blanket of tears.
Tears not of sadness, or bliss,
But of no...

Clara

I run through the train station, my feet pounding the hard floor with every bound. The other travelers serve as obstacles that I must dodge, slowing me down. But that's okay, because they slow him down too. 
I look behind me, and there is Clara. She's behind me, but she's not so far behind that I worry about her. She will catch up. I was always the sprinter, but she can outdo me in stamina every day.

Office Man

I entered the office. I sat down at my chair, hearing it squeak just the same as it always did. Surrounding me were the shelves, stacked with folders and files. I dumped my satchel, in the same spot, slurped from my coffee, from the same mug and checked the time, from the same clock. I reached the for the first folder with a thick wad of paper wedged inside and began.

Signing, checking boxes, reading, editing.
