To Hate

PROMPT: Found in Translation

Hate [heyt]
verb; to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest

Four letters.
h, a, t and e.
alone, they are insignificant.
Together, they form a word.
Not just a word, mind you, but an emotion.
And I wonder;
how can four letters be used to describe
something so big?
Let's look at it again:

Hate [heyt]
verb; to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest

Seminary (more added! I really should probably start using chapters lol)

 “If theology, as Asha claimed,” Professor Kalam began, “is the study of beginnings and endings, then it is the study of everything.” He paused, drawing a circle on the sand floor of the amphitheater. Morning light filtered through the red velarium. I blinked.  “We will focus on the protasis of this claim today then move on to the apodosis tomorrow. Can anyone offer a counter argument?” I scribbled the words protasis and apodosis on my slate, intending to look them...

May end up in the er

FREE WRITING

Have you ever considered trying to drink ink? 

I'm seriously thinking about it. 

I have absolutely no idea why I would want to. 

But I'm intrigued by the unknown. 

So with that fact in mind I will venture forward. 

And try the blue stuff in my pen.

Elemental

FREE WRITING

On the floor, there is a puddle
of my thousand fruitless tears.
A clouded, salted swamp on white tile;
vacant; 
translucent surface scattering my hazy reflection
into a thousand empty fragments.

One slice of my figure
for every tear you coaxed from my eyes
for every lash you hurled gently at my back;
this is the way it has been
and will always be, for

when a person is gone, they disappear into the void of time / and are,...

when you get punched, and you smile.

FREE WRITING


Tomorrow I will think about a dream for you but now I light this match on fire to

stare into your pain. You’re a morning without a world to wake up for. I whisper my idea of you
and between my lips a rose forms. Thorns. Little flowers that kill.

Did you know they wrote a fairy tale about you? My name is on the cover. I freeze up every time your letters curl up in my face, but you’re...

Me

PROMPT: Dust Jacket

Yes me. No one else but me. Just me and only me. 

I am an old soul imprisoned within a 14-year-old child's body. I may seem young but life has decided to come at me early. 

My name is Basti, however, I prefer to be called Rain. I am a pluviophile, hence my name. I live in the land of The Long White Cloud (feel free to Google what this means), a place full of mana, hopes and dreams. 
I...

The Girl In The Garden Of Deception

FREE WRITING

She was planted as a seedling no more than a sprout and she grew and grew and grew. As the sun shone on her, she bathed in its rays absorbing each one in the beauty of her leaves with not a single care or worry in the world for she were young and small. She did not know what she was to face for she was too young to understand that on every rose is thorns some more than others...

hello and goodbye

FREE WRITING

I'll say hello and they'll say goodbye,
but then I'll say hello again,
even if they only want a goodbye.

But then it hurts because I only wanted to say hello,
I'm not as clever as anything they'll throw.
But for them, the only thing they wish for is a goodbye.
Then I tell myself, "you tried".

Goodbye's always cut deeper than a knife, 
What was the point of my life?
A hello will always soon lead to a goodbye, ...

why me

FREE WRITING

I listen to the same song, waiting for it to raise my ego. Waiting for me to love myself like I always had. But is it truly possible when I'd gone to the point of no return? Nobody can love themselves when they'd shredded their heart into minuscule pieces, not you, not me. 

I don't get how I expect myself to love myself when I messed up this bad. With my friends, I was such a failure that they didn't...
