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...

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.

-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...

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...

Our Eight-legged Friends

PROMPT: Environmental Writing Competition

    From the smallest spider to the biggest tarantula, spiders seem to be everywhere. In the grass and trees, in the dusty corners of rooms and the musty dark depths of the basement. 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

FREE WRITING

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...

Danny, one of these anomalies, did decent in school. He was certainly no honor student; he was certainly no bad student. He was, on the outside, completely average. This was his first day at his...

She was strange ever since she entered the school. She was an outsider, no one approached her because we were afraid of her. We couldn't compare her to anyone in the school, she was like a one of a kind. We weren't normal like us, she was an alien to us and she was dangerous because she showed interest in things no one ever did.

It came suddenly, pouncing from beneath my skin, it was emerging from its cave like a wolf emerging the night. Darting through my veins with cold blood, all the negative emotions, I've tried to lock away from it, falling into its greedy talons, and pulling them out of the locked safe. I scrambled to shove them back into the safe, trying to keep them bottled and corked, but they were already in its clutches and it refused to let go...

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

Grinning honey-sweet with too wide eyes
clouds shiver with starfire lies-
The Dragon wakes, soft mountains
and diamond for a spine

Dripped down into smooth dark,
and the Serpent murmurs, coiled neat and tight-
feathers for scales and scales for feathers;
chasing the memory of light

And it whispers,
whip sharp and razor thin:
Child, child, child, you would come to me yet
my favorite child, my child, my child mine

Blinked awake, the Dove flies on wings

It's said that it came from the ocean. What's known for sure is that it comes with the rain.
