Song of the Empty Page

FREE WRITING

I am no songwriter,
no musician
Don't know much about music
in general, to tell the truth

But
I have heard a song

And the song,
in its silence
spoke to my soul, and then
buried itself there

It is a melody
that stole my heart away,
never to return it
Or so I hope

A soundless song

It captured me
in its spell,
its noiseless enchantment,
and held me there

It was beautiful

I can never forget it,

Imagine this: Their marriage has not been chosen by them, but they are happy anyway. 

They settle down in their own home, built on stilts for when the rainy season comes. He works for the agricultural sector of the government; she runs a store out of their front room and raises their four daughters. He teaches their family how to read and write. 

The world is changing, and when the rumors reach them, they decided to leave their homeland. The...

Separately

PROMPT: It’s Your Life  | GROUP: True Stories

I would say the first thing I remember is my parents divorcing, but that would be a lie - I was less than one year old. Although I don't remember it, it has shaped quite a lot of my life. Even when I go away on holiday without family, it plays a part. Because my parents each have to give me money separately and I have to text them separately. When I'm at home, I only see them separately. The...

A House Not a Home

FREE WRITING

There was no time. Everything seemed to be falling in around him. The wind beat ferociously against the window, the chattering of the glass against the screaming of the rain across it made it seem as though the walls were going to cave in around him at any moment. This house was so isolated, as he had been for quite some time as well, and yet he felt as though a million voices were shouting at him; telling him to...

    Edwin wondered if he'd ever see his best friend again. They'd been separated so suddenly, and her number had been deleted from his phone. He knew his mother must have something to do with the sudden move and deleted number. She'd never wanted them to be friends. He couldn't figure out why, though.

I am a study in paranoia.

That there was no poverty and wealth,
but peace in their place.
That difference did not divide,
but drive this society.
That regrets were not so hard to bare,
that my mind would order its thoughts to share.

not lost, but all feeling as if we could,

My Memory Lane

    Others see only the tumbling stones, the broken branches, the uncomfortable closeness of the crumbling walls on either side. Few come here now, for it is I—only I—who knows what this place truly is, and now no one else can ever learn—not the way I did.
    For this place is my Memory Lane and mine alone, my book of golden summer days spent skidding up and down the cobblestone path, my laughter like the trickle of the brook that...

Escape

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I hate the repeating voice inside my head telling me I need to come back to this normal life
Right now I just want to escape to somewhere else
Far from myself, but not too distant to get forever lost
Don't want to get trapped because the present never stays the same
Knowing the reasons why, just need to figure out how 
This dampened person in this 
interactive exhaustion needs to get away.

I want to find a place where...

It's two in the morning,
the clock is ticking away,
I don't know what I'm doing,
maybe waiting for the break of day.

Tired, but I can't sleep,
Is this some twisted dream?
it makes me want to weep,
Please send me just one bright beam.

The night owl is hooting at my window,
it's driving me insane.
Can somebody please make it snow,
or maybe send a little rain?

A wolf howls in the distance,
It seems like a...

The Prefix of my Life

PROMPT: It’s Your Life  | GROUP: True Stories

Inconsistent intelligence, and incomprehensible stupidity. 
Instantaneous love, not at first sight, but first laugh. 
Inconceivable joy created by inappropriate situations. 
Indifference to the monotony of adulthood. 
Inhuman imagination that led to joyful misadventures. 
Incorrigible courage, that led to many incidents. 
Infatuation with the undiscovered, the forgotten and the minute details of life. 
Infinite moments of spontaneity that led to unforgettable memories. 
Ineffable memories of shattered  hearts and broken promises. 
Intervals of mundane moments where life tried to reinvent itself. 
Interwoven...

This theme radiate a sense of adventure found in very few other songs. It is dark and brooding at points like any story, and therefore song, should be but it is also upbeat and reaches out to the inner pirate in all of us. 
For me that inner pirate is particularly strong.

I stand on an uneven gravel path, the dust swirling around my face tickles my nose and cheeks as I drag my dry hands across a bumpy sandstone cliff slope. The half-valley feeling warm and homey, but also astonishly beautiful. I kneel and feel the rocks lightly dig into my knee like small daggers going only as far as I would let. Putting my parched hand into the river water slightly below, soothed me. The rushes of water feeling like...

thirty-six notes

PROMPT: It’s Your Life  | GROUP: True Stories

Chopin's Berceuse is a lullaby, a gentle piece with a soothing melody. On one hand, it's stable and remains nearly the same throughout the entire thing. The other, however, dances to and fro and at one point reaches thirty-six wild notes per measure while striving to maintain an outward appearance of calm.

All that the passive listener hears is a beautiful masterpiece that they often take for granted. They only see the conflict and struggle for impossible perfection that's happening beneath...

I opened my Bible, eyes still bleary from sleep. The sentences on the page blurred and mixed together. Blinking several times, I cleared the film obscuring my vision, and a word caught my immediate attention. Fear. Been facing a lot of that lately. I mused, and read the entire verse:
   For God has not given us a spirit of fear. But of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 
Power. Love. A sound mind. These things seemed...
