Pain my companion

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths



Pain is my everyday friend and is always with me wherever i go
​Apart from into my dreams at night.

My constant pain keeps me wondering 
what did i do to deserve such a sweet bitter pain as my companion. 

I hold my tears back not because it doesn't hurt but because i have to be strong.

There are only two people who understand my relationship with pain 
and it is "I and Pain"itself .

My happiest moment is when...

Anger

PROMPT: Emotion by Association  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

rage simmers beneath your skin
it's as if you're a bubbling volcano, just needing the right push to explode
you are enveloped by the heat; it becomes you
your senses are clouded; there is a veil over your eyes, preventing you from seeing reason
adrenaline becomes your blood, and as soon as it comes, it is gone

Cold Without You

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

Cold Without You.
Nightmare

It's cold here where I stand,
And so dark I can’t see.
Please give me your hand,
So at peace, I can be.
I need your light,
Or else I am lost.
You are so bright,
You can melt away my frost.
Help me from drowning,
In this sea of darkness.
Keep me from frowning,
With your lack of wickedness.
Don't let me sink in this despair,
Because none like you can compare.

The Falling of Leaves

PROMPT: Hiker's Haiku  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

The air cold and sharp,
settles over the cooled town,
as fall settles in.

Leaves line the front yards,
fall already neglected,
passed by much to fast.

People don't slow when,
preparation comes so far,
before enjoyment.

Preparing for winter,
snow comes to fast to wait,
and enjoy what's now.

The air cold and sharp,
settles over the chilled town,
as winter settles in.

A Beautiful Fool

PROMPT: Beautiful Run-On  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

She thought the hours would be kind to
her, heart thumping, chest
heaving, eyes fixed with too many
tears;

She was a
fool to think that anyone
could love her
would love her
should even care.

Her sight felt hazy
Hazy thoughts reminded her to smile
Smile because beside you they laugh
Laugh too much, chest hurts
Hurts like sunlight to your eyes
Eyes that open wide towards joy
Joy to the seconds hidden in a moment
Moment passes yet her  breath stays
Stays alive and leaves a trail of heart beats
Beats with little silence in between
Between these ribcages lay quiet
Quiet that she tried to stomp out
Out of her body, because silence...

The tears that stained her blouse felt like another weight on top of her heart and she did not know how much more she could take before the load was too much and the organ collapsed. She wondered if perhaps the organ had collapsed long ago, and she was just finally feeling the effects as it pounded on the prison bars of her ribcage. She felt empty yet all too present, alone yet suffocating, the back of her eyelids seemed like...

death.

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

it wasn’t like they said;
agonisingly painful
nor was it painless
there was no Devil
no Reaper
hell or heaven
it was perfect
the numbness dissolved
carefully lowering her body
into heavy, deep
nothingness
perfect.

Anticipation

PROMPT: Emotion by Association  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

Tingling in your fingers as they twitch,
The imaginary force tugging at your lips,
Urge to hear the secret whispered in your ear,
The slight bounce in your stance even when you're unmoving,
All cause the anticipation is killing you

Those Thoughts

PROMPT: Emotion by Association  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

Her eyes softened and whelled with tears.
Her words turned to whispers and the room became silent.
My thoughts went still as memories from the past were bared before the world.
I felt this crushing feeling in my chest,
like the once beautiful life surrounding me was crumbling to the ground.
My heart was resigned, but my mind couldn't bear the thought. 
My sight became blurry as I turned and left.
I would not take this despare any longer.

Associated Emotion

PROMPT: Emotion by Association  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

In the depths
Of despair
And valley of the shadow
So much death
You're elsewhere
You decide to let it go
Your spirit
Sinks low
But what about your soul
In dispirit
Where to go
Somehow you are whole
