A better reader than a writer - but aren't we all?
If I like your writing then I will spam read it (sorry about that)

5 short poems

FREE WRITING

4
When you were a child
Everything was free
You could pay supermarket attendants with pebbles
And run away with glee

You get lost in the sky's blankness
The stars, like bright glitter, under your feet
The clouds like wet spongy moss; your fingers stained with inky blackness
Your eyes flutter and close when they reach where the horizons meet

raindrops
fall into your waxy hands
painpops
like stains on your mind ruin your plans

Friendship is like water
It cools, but can boil to nothing in the air
it can fall to an ice cold scummy backwater
and losing it can make you feel like you don't even care

the clock constrains my mind
as it chimes awkwardly and out of time
it can blind and isn't kind
it feels like sludgy slime or an awkward rhyme
5 short four lines poems that are completely unconnected

Prompt Idea - try writing 5 unrelated poems; two rules - they have to have an ABAB rhyme scheme and they have to be just four lines long. I really enjoyed this challenge. Lmk what you think of these and which one you liked most (if any); I wrote them very quickly so criticism and comments would be appreciated :)
