Our Promise

FREE WRITING

I've been thinking about you lately 
I've been thinking of my mistakes
I didn't realize it
But when you promised me you'll return
I promised you that I'll keep waiting
But I don't know how
Much more I can wait for you

I don't know what I'm doing here
I don't know why I'm still making you wait
Am I too afraid to return to you?
Too afraid to face this splinter in our life
That I created? 

I can't...

Hello! 


This is the next Competition I'll be hosting. I'm going to try and notify everyone when the results are posted. PROMISE.

Okay. Here goes nothing.

_________________________

Prompt One: A glued heart.

Sounds funny, but don't worry. It's better than it seems. Write about a heart that was broken, but then someone else came along and fixed it right up. Make sure to talk about the man/woman who broke the heart, and the new man/woman who fixed the heart equally....

my grandmother built herself an armour of fool's gold because she was horribly ostentatious like that #kickoff

FREE WRITING


my grandmother was a fool
rigid, gnarly bones encased in the calcium
of sins
she loved us a little too much
us, her eyeballs to the strange world
she could only catch wispy glimpses of
from the mesh window.
my grandmother had claws for fingers
and three decades of her life spent in
her creaky rickety charpoy
a wedding gift, she once told me
gleaming eyes drowning in salt water
the palanquin weighed down by her 
feathery, insignificant presence.

"Flowers...flowers..." I whispered out of habit. Beads of sweat were forming on my face but the flowers weren't appearing.

I closed my eyes and tried again. Speaking it's name and imagining it's vibrance. Yet the little blue vase was persistently empty.
"They'll grow." A familiar voice assured me.

"I've been trying for a day Mum." I complained, massaging my aching fingers. "Plus, it's not a hard spell."

"Let me try," she sat down at the dining table beside...

Molly Says Yes

PROMPT: Writing for Children Competition 2020

Molly loves the Earth. The bright blue oceans, the green grass, and the beautiful sky. One day, Molly wakes up with a question on her mind. She asks her mother as she gets ready for school, "Momma, how can I keep the Earth happy?" 

"Hmmm," her mother thinks. "Can you turn the sink off while you brush your teeth? We don't want to waste water!" her mother says.

"Yes!" says Molly. She turns the water off and finishes getting ready.

Cupid's the Devil #apoemaday26

FREE WRITING


he aimed his damned arrow:
poisoned at the tip,
decorated in curses,
and shot with force.
there's an unethical joy he finds
in the torture of his victims,
creating ill-fated romances
and all the brokenhearted.
so when he hit me,
i knew i was screwed,
that there was no way
a relationship would last
between me and you.

The shadows drop a little bit of themselves into my cup, laughing. I see them pulsating through the tree branches and vaporising at certain kinks but their pattern never reaches my intelligence, so I bow my head. At this, they laugh again and are quiet most immediately after.

“You are too respectful towards them.”

I raise my head but only to look into my cup where their penumbrae swirl without diffusing into the water. Then, I wait. 

Nothing speaks again...

Hello again.

I have been thinking about my activity on this site since my last post about leaving. A month of holidays has given me the time and environment to think and write. I thought that I wasn't able to express things that I wanted to here but I realised that I was wrong. This place has been my home for writing for so long and I am sure I won't be able to find another place more comforting and...

I finish the corpse. She is alive and beautiful because I dressed her. I dressed her in a washed yellow; the shade of what used to be an artificial sun but is now a rich palmful of sand. It is what my mother would have called a good colour; one that knows its place and grows healthily from the soil, well-balanced and modest; but perhaps this confuses you. I remember that your language does not permit an understanding that my...

I kissed you goodbye that day 
Leaving you with only the memory of me 
And a promise 
That I'll be back 
I sent you letters, souvenirs, pictures 
To fill up the empty promise that I made to you
A promise of a lifetime 
With you and me
How could I do this to you? 
Five years filled with broken promises
I told you I'd return
I told you I was going to marry you
But I'm still here,

Jemma couldn't figure out if she were awake or still unconscious. If she was awake, she must be in a dark room because everything was black. Shuffling blindly around her new surroundings, she found herself in a cage- a iron, metal rod cage. What was she, an animal? 
Am I in heaven? 
Jemma always thought that heaven would be a paradise, something beyond words. A paradise with Fitz... because she didn't want to be anywhere without him. She felt hollow...

silence

PROMPT: Love After Love

Over the hill
by a silent creek
on a silent night.

Embers are gleaming
like the wings of a Phoenix
sitting by my chimney.

A home away from home
made by bricks and fire
all straight out of my imagination

"I have finally found my home,"
the man said,
"I will stay here until the silence begins to scream."

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

So I am setting you free,
for gardens to bloom in your lungs and
vines to crawl their way out of your throat.
What is more romantic then coughing up blood and hyacinths? Call it a condemnation if you like; I prefer blessing.
Is there anything more beautiful than crying rosewater? The smell will cling.
To hair, to silk, billow into clouds above your head and you will find the lovers you longed for
smell it on the sheets. Every...

and another promise with each stamp.
That you'll be back

And now I don't know

     That is one suspicious man. I went back to examining the evidence from Alyona Ivanovna’s case. Only one piece of evidence had been recovered from the scene. The rest seemed to have vanished along with the pawnbroker’s wealth. It was hard to suspect who did it as no one had gained a surplus of wealth in the previous days. The picture, showing dusty handprints and scratches from what seemed to be a knife, was the only piece of evidence recovered from the scene.

Despite every attempt to kill me
Hate it how my wound seems to heal
And there's no scar where that arrow used to be

My gods are not dead
Our lack of attention has not weakened them
Their bellows from their domain have not waned

My gods are not cruel
They are loving and protective
Just and fair to all they oversee

My gods are not primitive 
They are no less divine that The Lord 
Who sits bloated in his own ignorance

My gods are not ignorant
They grow and change as aeons pass
Always accepting from the start
