Balter- (v.) to dance artlessly, without particular grace or skill but usually with enjoyment.

Well, if this word aint me, I don't know what is.

Wild

PROMPT: WILD

I'll let my dreams run wild,
rushing, dancing,
like an innocent child.

I'll make it through eventually,
unkempt, wild dreams that will come true,
potentially.

Call it a delusion,
an untamed idea never to be,
but I know it's not an illusion.

Running steps towards the dream,
not allowing myself to be fooled.
Then I see that I was the deluded,
a dream too wild to be captured by me.

Fear

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

I ran at full speed away from the monster, heart pounding in my ears. My feet thudded heavily on the cracked, dry earth with every step and each stride brought me further away from the cave, but it was still there. No matter where I went the thing pursued. I could not hide. It was a giant, hairy spider. Its fangs dripping poisonous venom, every drop that hit the earth creating craters the size of tennis balls. Black smoke curled...

i was the moon
that encircled your planet;
the gravity of your intelligence
puled me in and kept me
in my repetitive orbit of you

little did i know that
you had moons on contrasting sides
of you that i could not see

little did i know that
you also orbited someone;
the sun

and little did i know that
the gravity of the sun's beauty
drew you closer each second

i was the moon 
that shone only for you

Telescope Discoveries

FREE WRITING

As you place down
The tri-legged instrument
In the cool grass
And guide its cylindrical arm skybound
You wipe the lens clean of dust
And place your curious eye
Into a world of stars
When suddenly
Instead of feeling distant
The vast space welcomes you
Beckoning you to refocus
To get a clearer look
And you see craters
On the moon's shadowy surface
As if someone has been digging for secrets
And stars that are light years away
Shine only...

the black dome above you
that caps off the earth
has been there
forever
and will be there
forever
adorned with winking orbs 
lights that form pictures
that disappear at night
only to materialize 
once again in the dark
above you
that will reassure your
uncertain mind and 
tell you that
everything will be ok.

Speak

FREE WRITING

If you spend 
So much of your time 
Suppressing your speech
The words will 
Become warped beyond
Recognition that when
They are finally released
From your aching soul
The meaning is lost
Over time
And you forget
Your reason for forming
That thought
In the first place

-Taken- (Sonnet)

FREE WRITING

Soon the world shall awaken
Though matter will it not
To the girl whose life was taken
And dragged beneath a plot

Struggle and convulse as she might
Not a soul was around
To witness a desperate skirmish at night
She vanished without a sound

Cold, lifeless fingers tangled in a scrap
She'd snatched before being drained
Abruptly demoted to an eternal nap
Her body left utterly maimed

Eerily still, shadows encompass her remains 
As blood files out of her...

The Sun's decent is leaving dawn behind
So luminous against a darkened void
Across the sky pale crescent light will shine
The ashen trails fleeing all too soon
Lambiant beams of light engulf the air
And once again a spry world arises

Where Do I Belong? And What Does That Mean?

PROMPT: Chunyun

    If you looked at my face, I guarantee you wouldn't be able to guess most of my ethnicities. My ancestral home could be in so many places- Japan, China, Hawai'i, France, England, Germany, or Scotland. Every part of me comes from a piece of each heritage passed down through the generations. Even though I live in a culturally diverse part of the world (that I refuse to disclose here), my home is yet to be determined.

The Monster Within

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

I trudge through the expanse of forest in front of me. On this hazy autumn night, the leaves have been turning for a while now but have just began to drop. I take my time getting home; enjoying the peaceful walk alone- until I hear footsteps behind me. Without glancing back, my steady pace suddenly breaks into a run. A mad dash to survive- I hear it behind me, i’m going too slow; it’s as if my feet are sinking...

These creatures are feared in the typical American household. Spiders are classified as arachnids, putting them in the same family as scorpions and certain of mites. Over 40,000 kinds of spider have been identified, and 3,000 live in North America. These eight-legged critters strike fear into the hearts...

Sunset

As the sun sets
And my heart opens more
My thoughts how they race
My tears only pour
They tell me to run
Anywhere but here
Take me away
I can’t handle the fear
Now it is dark
And my mind’s only screaming
Alone with myself
My heart and it’s beating
Scared and bloody
Just me myself and I
My mind is now numb
No longer I cry

"Listen. Close your eyes and listen."

Curious, I closed my eyes and stood perfectly still next to her. I listened, and heard the world going on around us as it always did. The sounds of civilization pulsed and hummed throughout the surrounding atmosphere. But I had learned to shut that out. After years of living in the midst of it, it was nothing but white noise. Straining to hear more, I listened to the sounds of the soft breeze dancing...

Sister & I

PROMPT: Love and War  | GROUP: Writers United

The ones I love are dead.
She was dead.
Not physically.
But, in my head.
She looks at me with pain.
A lot of guilt I gained.
She was fighting the war inside her head.
I looked at her and said “you’re insane.”
Then I came into her room.
I see her dangling from the roof.
A card is all she left behind,
saying “I love you sis, now I’m fine.”
