Imagine

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Have you ever lay beneath
the starry night sky, looking
for constellations and
shooting stars? Feeling cold
wind swoop up from the
bottom of your trampoline.
Maybe you've wondered about
Martians out in other galaxies. 
But the most fascinating of all
is the imagination. For, you
never were on your trampoline,
you were quietly reading this poem.

I am the bird

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I am the bird,
Plucking the feathers
I need to fly away.
I am the wolf,
Slinking away from the pack
That keeps me company at night.
I am the fox,
Beautiful and cunning,
Taking because no one will share.
I am the hare,
Blending in to the forest
Never facing my predators
I am the fish,
Swimming in light and darkness
Scared of the currents.
I am the tortoise,
Hiding under my shell
Concealing who I am.
I am...

some things no one deserves

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Corey Clark wanted to kiss Marley Hoff so bad he swore he could feel his lips tingle. He stared intently at the side of her face hoping she'd turn and look at him. As he stared at the freckles that sprawled over her cheeks, he wondered how she could come to hate something so beautiful.

Her cheeks were flushed a light pink shade because of the cold weather and the crying she'd been doing lately. He didn't understand why he...

A Study in Pipes - A Sherlock Holmes Pastiche - Please Review!

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I have a memory of one evening when Holmes and I were resting in our lodgings at Baker Street, Holmes sitting Turk fashion in his favourite armchair in his mouse-coloured dressing gown, fingertips touching to form a peak as sharp as his mind. I was lounging as usual in the other. The former had recently puzzled out an awkward little enigma which I cannot as yet share with the public, but his mind was inactive for want of a case, and was relying on...

My Enemy is My Friend

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Eyebrows creased and eyes slitted in concentration. Beads of sweat dripped down my spine and time slowed. My weapon was a heavy weight in my fist. My arms were aching from the previous battle as I turned to face one of my greatest enemies. One I would have to fight alone.

I let out the breath I was holding as my pen slowed to a stop. It stayed like that for a while, hovering over the page as I tried...

R.I.P (#truestory)

PROMPT: Open Prompt

 I went on a trip
To a faraway place
To find fun and thrill
But somehow found myself
Walking all alone.

Being stabbed in the back
And turned away for good
My heart was in ashes
With no one to call.

They labeled me the odd one out
They made me break in tears
They spread rumors like dripping blood
And I was the antagonist to them.

I came home and was relieved
I never gave in again
To the...

Where is Somewhere?

PROMPT: Open Prompt

     The air’s cool against my wet skin, and all I can smell is the saltiness as the wind blows through my long hair. I wiggle my toes into the sand that surrounds my feet. The water that circles my legs is warm and shimmers from the reflecting sun, and high above me, the seagulls are quietly gliding through the air. Big waves come crashing in from miles away as the day’s last rays of light pour over...

The Creator

PROMPT: Open Prompt

The world.
It's a wonderful place.
There is beauty in the simplest things.
Like the clouds or the tiniest most complex cell
There is an artistic view behind everything 
Not just the arts
Not just beauty 
It is in science
It is in math
Almost as if it been created by someone
Or  by something
No one seems to see it.
They give credit to an accident
Man refuses to see what is in front of their faces 
So they...

Breath

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I stretch my body out on my bed, feeling myself sink deeper and deeper into the overly soft material of the mattress. It’s raining. The light, steady drumming of the heavy raindrops on the rooftop seems to release the tension that has been building up in my shoulders and I close my eyes. The rhythm in my breath seems to match itself with the drumming of the rain, creating something that almost reminds me of some strange, eerie piece of...

Clink!

Everyone brought their glasses together.

"Cheers! To Riley!"

"To Riley!" Came the chorus.

Riley blushed. She's good at acting. She put her glass down and rubbed her nose. That was the signal. I stood up.

"Well, would you look at the time? Better be off now. Ri?"

"Yes, let's go, Luke. Thank you so much, Linda dear. This party was simply delightful. My brother and I must remember to throw something just as grand for your birthday." Riley said...

The Box

PROMPT: Open Prompt


"See ya, Sami!"   
"Yeah bye, Billie!" I hollered back as my friend and I split ways. We had been walking back from a long day at school. The wind blew and scratched at my rosy cheeks. It was the middle of winter in Richmond, Virginia. It hadn't snowed in a while. Everything was just cold and crisp. But I often walked home from school every day so I had gotten used to the bitter weather. I approached the bridge...

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    70 days 5 hours 23 minutes and 5 seconds of abstinence
70 days since I let a man define who I am
Tell me that my body is his property,
That it is my right to pleasure him.
    I believe I'm in a better place now and I'm happier now.
I know now that my body is not an object,
my body does not belong to some guy I found on the internet,
my whole self worth is no longer...

The Model Murderer

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I am so excited!  The competition is going to be awesome!  I entered it a few weeks ago because a modeling agency was looking for the ‘next big thing’ and apparently, I’m it.  So now I’m here in a huge convention center made especially for modeling with a thousand other models. All with the same goal in mind: win and get the grand prize.  $100,000.                                                                     
 
The first day of the competition was pretty easy, there are only five of...

The Space In-between

PROMPT: Open Prompt

People often compare a new stage in life to "The end of one chapter and the start of a new one.". This didn't feel like that at all. The jump felt like the end of one book and the start of a new one, in a way that made everything before it feel like a prequel: in that it only mattered to those who had an infinite desire for another story with the characters they knew so well. It was...

Absolute Zero

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    All the blue would be the first thing that anyone would notice about her. Sapphire hair that always seems to be a curly mess, entirely untameable. Tie-dye sky blue tank with those old, beaten, acid wash jeans. Despite bleeding blue, she’s never actually blue. No clouds inhabit her sky, all bright sunshine and soft ocean breezes. From chasing her perfect wave on the weekends to working behind the counter in Absolute Zero, a nitrogen ice cream shop, with her board...

The orange house

PROMPT: Open Prompt


Messy yet quite welcoming, the house as orange as the sun above. Believer of the lord? No doubt for the three crosses above the meshed but yet open door and two on either side of the (also open) gate, let one know that the occupant is indeed.
No one going in nor anyone coming out, but I’m sure that silent chatters flood the rooms of the orange house, for the several clothes and open doors and windows clearly indicate that...

She in the Foothills

PROMPT: Open Prompt

She was there, alone, in the foothills of that rocky, dry and jagged mountain. She couldn't see the top. She looked down and saw her feet firmly rooted on the ground at the bottom of the mountain. She couldn't lift her feet. She couldn't get to the top, she was stuck, stuck at the bottom. She would never get to the top of the mountain and make a life for herself. She will always be at the foothills.

PROMPT: Open Prompt

People say I'm cold,
Lacking feeling, sympathy,
And the like. 

Difficult to decode,
To decipher, to understand
That's what they say.

A facade, always there.
A curtain, to hide what
I don't want others to see.

But, do you think 
That's all of it
Not thinking, if there's more?

Shame on you
We are all the same
But we just have a choice

A choice to show
What we want others to see 
What we want others to know

The grave: a short story part-1

The night was cold, wind brushing across the face of a young Mark who was safely in his bed dreaming about being a police officer. "Shit, shit, and more shit you've got nothing good do you?" the criminal asked holding a kitchen knife to the cashier's neck, 
"Please don't hurt m-me," she said in fear.
"Yeah, I shouldn't kill you," he said, shoving the knife into the leg of the cashier.

The Hunger

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    There's a hunger in me that appears at night when I'm alone in my room. It takes over my whole form and breaks the only good in me to pieces. I can never breathe and the feel of water crushes me into thinking I am drowning. No matter how much I fight the darkness it always pulls me back down into the dark depths. There are sharks there that threaten to tear me to grains, there are animals...

 The Doorway
     Sometimes days that seem ordinary aren’t. This was one of those days. I was walking around in the park and a peculiar butterfly stopped in front of me, and yes it really did stop. It was glowing white, and was sparkling.  As I reached out to touch it, it seemed as if the whole world had stopped. It was just me and this butterfly. My fingers brushed its wings, the world exploded, and I landed hard on a...
