Soul Searching

FREE WRITING

You're a shipwreck,
A vessel lost in a vast void of dangerous nothings.
You soul search for a home in a place that's drifted far beyond your reach.
A place that's origins are your own nightmares.
It feeds off your fear, manipulating your senseless boundaries into a fear that cannot be contained.
The ocean of your mind is a place,
A place of your own havoc and insanity.

From Slate to Paper to Screens - the Revolution of Media

PROMPT: Unplugged: Op-Ed Competition

My grandmother once told me that when they switched from using slate in the classroom, and started using paper, the teachers complained sorely - what a waste paper was! Such a luxury, and given to schoolchildren? 
Imagine the switch from using candles to using lightbulbs! The outrage sparked by a heated metal wire must have been electrifying.

Change is the only constant in life. With the new milennia, one of the biggest changes ever known to man started to make...

The world was created in six long days, a blissful paradise with prices to pay. In the Garden of Eden here’s Lilith here’s Adam where life begins at the start of the annum.
A pairing of equals. Inside perfect nirvana surrounded by walls. But Adam wondered if this was the life. He wanted a servant, a slave, a subjugated wife.

Social Media: The Performance of a Lifetime

PROMPT: Unplugged: Op-Ed Competition

I could think of nothing more creatively stifling than living ‘unplugged’ from social media. I know, what a sign of the times, right? The truth is, many of us seem to feed into this idea that social media is a prison—it is nothing but a manifestation of our need to feed our suffering ego. We simply accept how it is unjustly feared upon by generations who grew up in unfamiliar times, trying to find problems in a prospect foreign to...

that's what i was told to do as a young child
whenever i misbehaved or did something wrong.

it was tiring.
it was boring.
and most of all,
it was a waste of time.

now that i'm older,
no one tells me to do that anymore.

My Mirror reflects what others have said 
Words that make me feel nothing but dead 

Who is Nyah Meller? 

I scream out in fear 
Waiting for the truth to magically appear 

The mirror flashes its devilish grin 
Knowing how it’s finally her time to win 

The girl from my nightmares looks right at me 
Her haunting eyes are dark like the sea 

Her demonous reflection is everything feared 
“You will never be good enough” she sneered

Lollipop

PROMPT: Open Prompt


It had been an exquisite lunch. Loads and loads of mouth-watering food,  from kaati rolls to pasta. The barbecued vegetables had been delicious as well.

Undoubtedly a great lunch, especially after they offered us lollipops on our way out.

I held my hand at my forehead to block out the glaring sun. It was so exhausting, standing in this oppressive heat, even if it was only for a short while. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a...

I am lost.
I swiftly open my computer
Shot in the heart
A pain shoots through my whole body
I moan songs of sorrow
My body goes stiff and falls to the ground
I feel myself sinking deeper and deeper into the floor
My legs tremble as I stand up
I take giant lunges toward the kitchen
Heading for the freezer
I snatch the frozen mango
Freezing my teeth with each bite
I spread my body across the ground

She asks 
If you feel alright

You lie. 

A tiny slit opens in the ground.

You tell her
You're going to sleep,
In your room,
she can't hear you weep.

The slit becomes a fissure

She stares
at your red, puffy eyes.
She does not ask,
She simply sighs.

The fissure is now large enough to swallow you whole.

at the mirror.
you can't tell who 
is staring back.

Why do you hide away from the world, as though it is the sun and you the moon?
Is it because it is cruel and harsh, always hoping it will be able to clip your wings and silence your voice?
Trying and trying once more to break free of the cage has tired you out, and
Harrowed sobs escape trembling lips and tears roll down your face.
Don't let the hardships bring you to your...

Breathe

PROMPT: Refuge

Refuge is described 
as a place where you can hide,
a place where you can find peace,
a place to find solace,
a place to breathe.

Where you won't have to look back
For shadows from your past
Where there are no condemning stares,
and no 'I don't care' s 

Refuge is when
the weight of the world is off your shoulders,
and you are free, 
to be yourself.

Come Night, and spread your splendor on the land,
A cloak of dappled jewels that blink and fade,
Oh, you who grasps the wings of peace in hand,
Breathe sweet zephyr of dreams to those betrayed.
 
And many slumber in your lulling stay,
Blind to the beauty of your silent fall,
Perchance a wayfarer had lost his way,
Shall stare with wondrous eyes around this all.
 
Yet all your charm shall once again be gone,
