Blindly Folded

PROMPT: Open Prompt

The blankness I feel
is gray; 
both black and white, 
they say. 
But where stands
the bright, 
for mere nothingness
has filled my sight?

Warfare of the Brain - Selected Excerpts

PROMPT: Open Prompt

To Be Pure

I wanted to write down exactly what I feel,
Everything that has been cooped up and locked away
Inside the deepest, darkest part of my soul,
But somehow the paper stayed empty

And I couldn’t have described it any better.

No.

This is what I am feeling now, I thought,
As I stared at the blank sheet.

White, a blanket of pure untainted white;
A white that seems to contain all the possible shades of colors
Blended...

PROMPT: Open Prompt


Paper girl
In a paper town
So stunning, ethereal
From afar
But fragile and delicate up close
You’d hold her hand
Assuming she’ll seize yours firmly
The grasp so fervid you’d feel the energy exude
Dear God it’d be everywhere
Simply puzzling, unattainable to walk from her realm
You took too long contemplating!
What’d be best choice in saving one who may of been in need of saving
What would she do?
Think of all the days
Then all the...

Soulmate Marks (A Short Story) #Cliffhangerqueencontest

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    Sitting at the dining room table, my arms resting against the cool wood. I was wearing a thin tank top and pajama shorts, hoping my mark appeared at a place I could show off.
My phone buzzed against my thigh, causing the chair to make noise from the vibrations. I held back the urge to grab it, knowing that who ever it was, I'd be on the phone for hours. That could wait. My mark, couldn't.
I dreamed of this...

You've heard the story of the little train who was going up the hill with a heavy load, he wasn't sure he was going to make it so he told himself: "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can." Until he got all the way to top.

This is almost the same...

PROMPT: Open Prompt

The first time he sees him, he’s swimming in the ocean among long, carefully cut pieces of wood: wreckage. The boy is shivering when they pull him up, shaggy brown hair dripping saltwater into his soaked clothes. There’s no telling how long ago the wreckage happened. He asks whether he regrets the tragic end of his ship; Let it fucking sink, says the rescue with poison in his tone, and spits out into the ocean. He stands in...

For the quiet ones

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Shout out to the people who...
Practice and promote ignorance
To those few who
Still preach the wrong doing
I'm sending the word
For myself and for the few too scared to speak up
That we're done
We won’t stay down
We will get up and
We will stand our ground
Not only for ourselves but
To show we aren’t alone
And we stand strong
Together

PROMPT: Open Prompt

The African House of Commons.
Such gender bias
 it could be called a men's room .
A bill is passed;  
Our worship is faulty
For all our years 
Glory has been accrued the wrong being.
From now on 
'Tis be 'The Almighty She'.

A ripple rips through the room 
Members of the parliament find it absurd
There is holy anger in the court
Blasphemy!
Abomination!!
Those for this bill say Aye
Those against it say Nay

PROMPT: Open Prompt

One day, I was sitting inside my house bored out of my mind. There was nothing to do. I walked outside to try and figure out what I could do to occupy my time. I decided that going into my backyard and seeing what I could do there was probably my best bet for finding something interesting. I slowly made my way to my backyard, and when I got there I decided to go to into my woods to see...

Night

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Night
The darkest time of day
That's where I find it ironic that most people my age have their darkest thoughts at the time
Myself included
When we're crying from stress and life itself pretty much
I love the night though
Specifically midnight conversations
Where people speak the words they wouldn't think of saying
When honesty shines through like the stars in the sky
Where we laugh at anything and everything 
Too tired to care how dumb it is

Why is my Brain Killing Me?

PROMPT: Open Prompt

   Does anyone ever stop to think about how small humans are? How you are just one small human in one small city of one small state of one small country of one small continent of one small planet in one small universe. Everyone is so focused on their small world. They are focused on material objects and looks. One day he sky will fall, and everyone will realize that the world is much bigger than they originally thought. They’ll...

YOU THERE

PROMPT: Open Prompt

You there,
You have some nerve showing up here.
These are my dreams, not yours.
You have some nerve, speaking to me tonight,
When I haven't seen you since there was life in me.
Get out of my dreams, ghost.
Get out of my poetry.
Let me go. 
Oh, no.
Oh, no. 
Oh no, I saw your face. 
I don't love you. 
I don't.
But why does it hurt so much,
When I get so much as a glimpse of you, ...

Winter Wishes

PROMPT: Open Prompt

You peer through the frosted windowpane,
Index finger reaching out
To draw diaphanous circles on the frosty, damp glass.

The once misty world comes into focus:

Blankets of white
drape over stockade fences,
Ashen powder
lines crumbly bark and brittle branches;
The cold of December
Has never looked so inviting.

You wish you could leave your mark on the world,
Dotting the snowy sheet with your footprints,
As you traverse around with your tongue stuck out between chapped lips,
Lapping...

Flashes of darkness

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Moments after your eyes close
They begin to crawl into your dreams
Moments after you wake up
It follows you down the dark streets of your mind
I dance with my fears
No choice but to let them lead
Flashes of a child trying to hide the ocean within
The ocean wild and strong
Flashes of a child trying to hide a broken heart
The shards inside tear her apart
And now not knowing what has become of her
She...

Imagine you are sitting in the lunch room. You look around at all of your laughing friends, think about how happy you are. You think about how much you love all your teachers and classes, how great it will be to be in colorguard and theatre and swim team next year. You imagine yourself graduating on the stage of your school with your peers who you have grown to love, even when they annoy the heck out of you. Imagine...

The Heart Wants What It Wants

PROMPT: Open Prompt

7:55 pm. 
He's not coming tonight,  your heart cries. 
Funny part is,  you know it's right. 
He'd never come this late.  So, in spite of the hope that you feel growing in your heart- which you're trying to kill, - you just know it,  you know he's not coming tonight.
Yet,  when you see the flashlight illuminating the path through which he always walks in,  your heart still jumps.  It freaking stops and starts beating all over again.

This Poison Love of Mine

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I watch my memories from afar as if they do not belong to me
A kiss within a crowded hall
Her running the first moment she gets
Me calling out to her with an ecstatic voice
She doesn't look back
A Chance
a change for a single chance
Joy fills me and I can't help but smile 
Pulled from the repreive of blankness and emptiness by a single action
I come out into the hall early to make sure I...

It all started at breakfast.
I’m not sure if I should have start with a once upon a time, but really, this story never started once upon a time. Sure, all families have there mishaps all through life, but this didn’t happen all through life.
It started as soon as we heard the news.
Honestly, it started the night before, when Josie texted me the news, but since mom and dad have a strict no-cell-phones-after-9 rule, they didn’t see...

    A woman stood next to a rather large bookshelf, discomfort veiling her face. She stood there, sorting through a pile of books lining a cart, putting them back into their respective shelves. Her maroon trench coat shined brightly against the wet of the rainy outside world next to her. She radiated elegance, a stung face no one would dare forget.
   Her once frowning face gave way to a small smile as she picked up a thin book...

The art of loving you

PROMPT: Open Prompt


I always thought that the people with whom we connected were the ones we were bond to be with forever. To me, love was not giving up on the person who was dear to you in any circumstances. This misunderstanding of what I thought love was back then was what really got me thinking whether the way you felt about me was real or not. Real feeling don't just go away and I never seemed to understand how yours went...

Books of the world

People are so similar to books. Distantly, each one look like a simple bunch of paper but as you come close, each book has a different genre, a different opinion, a different story.
You'll find a romantic one and the one who love mysteries. The one who find satisfaction in guiding others. Then there are those who are filled with facts while the rest loves to live in their own fantasies. The beautiful and poetic one. One with the shining...
