Pain

FREE WRITING

Dear Pain,

I believe I am not worth such torment. Try and pick on someone who can take it. I tolerate you like Mothers tolerate their boisterous children. You pester me with lies and doubts. Am I really not good enough? Why do my family still love me, then? My friends haven't left me.

Yet.

There was that voice again. It was Pain. Lingering in my mind. I fought on, my hands shaking as I wrote.

Perhaps you just wish...

I have a question... or maybe a few.

FREE WRITING

How can we love, if we have none?
How can we play, if we hate fun?
How can we make things good,
If people aren’t understood?
If colour draws a line of hate?
If there’s hunger, war, sexism, rape?
If we don’t appreciate or respect?
If there’s differences we can’t accept?
How can life again be well,
If we treat each other like Hell?
I have a question, or maybe a few,
I was wondering, if you have them too.

night has fallen, and you're lost.

the street is busy, swallowed up by hundreds of people - most of them drunk. it's the first day of the new year, and people want to celebrate it, the coming of change.

but some things don't change. ever.

(the anonymity of a crowd, a young girl, this is a disaster in every way.)

it happens when you're distracted, standing up on your toes, trying to catch a glimpse of your parents...

Pls read this before going any further

The English classroom was relatively smaller than the previous one, but somehow,  it seemed to be more homely and full of life. The walls were adorned with beautifully painted pictures , most of them depicting some of the scenes from the famous Shakesperean plays. "Ms. Thompson's treasures." Dennis muttered under his breathe.

Dennis had been right. None of the students actually seemed to take the point of coming in time seriously. There were ...

PROMPT: "My Heart is Like"  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

I only noticed it on that night you confessed:
What is this feeling that crept its way into my heart?
Like the cherry blossoms that bloom in spring,
They make my eyes wet,
They make my heart beat fast;
I am grateful that I'm someone you hold dear,
But how long will this last before the petals fall?

Paradise

PROMPT: Book Love  | GROUP: True Stories

Books are a wonderful paradise to get lost in:
Drawing you into a world of imagination
Among the flaky pages
Of black, heavy words,
Feeling euphoria and calm
Glazing over each sentence;
In this world is where
I can find a piece of my truest self.

Soft red petals on a warm day.
A beauty I could only compare to you.
The roses in bloom within my garden

Your rose lips meeting mine,
A bright red rose.
Pulchritudinous.
Words fail at your sight.

Rose red,
As the mythical red string that wraps around you,

Fall comes,
And you’re the apple of my eye.
We hold hands in the chilled air.
You are still as sweet and fragrant as Summer.
In my eye the roses are wilting...

He sits beside a death-still lake, tears clouding up his eyes,
Deep in a desolate forest where the icy wood-wind sighs,
Blue pale lips curled in bitter sorrow, tremble with the grass,
While drops of water patter down like bits of broken glass.
 
Upon his frail shoulders, a black coat billows in the breeze, 
While he bows here, cold and lonely, beneath the watchful eyes of trees,
A misty moon cries softly, sprinkling tears of silver down,

11:34 PM, TARGET

it's strange, isn't it, you think, how there are some places where the world turns itself inside out. at this time of night, at this target, with nobody else around but you and the woman at the checkout counter with heavy eyelids, the rest of the earth is a tucked-away daydream. toto's "africa" pours down from the speakers, all ethereal harmonies and ghostly xylophones. the music twines itself around your hands, your chest, your neck, a gentle...

Oh star of the morning,

To illuminate the steps

Away from my solitude
Oh, tell the light of the morning

Tell the light of the morning

If my querencia is the hills

How could you not want me to sing like the...

When the World is Alive Again

FREE WRITING

We breathe the air it provides,
Lungs inflate, deflate,
We take its fellow inhabitants and destroy,
Always taking more than we give.

We are content to sit back, 
Saying we tried, but this is beyond our reach,
We watch it crumble in our hands,
Always excuses, never the truth.

We lie and say we want that, 
When, if we did, we would attempt,
At least try to let go of what we don't need,
Just a little, and give something...

Sabana, sabana...
With your breeze of summer dung,
Your lagoon mirrors,
Sentinel of the palms
That peer out with the moon
Here I stay with you
Even though I leave and go very far
Like a dove that flies 
And leaves her nest on the ground

My heart tightens
For I'll no longer see your sunrise
Nor the wild stallions, or the bushes
Or the heron that flies
With the horse's halter I leave
Tied my loves
Drop by drop...

I didn't even joke about how wobbly I was after stepping off the bus to the hotel. This wasn't how I was supposed...

Icy cold and numb
Scorching sun in the desert
Tidal wave in the middle of the ocean

Ticking clocks

Breathing too little?
Breathing too much!

The pendulum haunts the obedient mindever ticking, ever tocking. A distant century whispers wisdom in a broken ear: “By the grace of the Hora, the children will sing lullabies of change as the lingering darkness withers into a kiss. A kissthe dawning sun on the wisps of rebirth after deatha catalyst for metamorphosis. It is the sounding alarm that marks the beginning of the new order.”
