To Everyone Everywhere

FREE WRITING

    Our work block had commenced giving everyone in Foundations of Math 11 the nod to group with our friends and talk until the bell rang. I had no friends in this class except for one, Jamie. We both sat at the back corner of the class and worked on our geometry project which was due in less than a week. For me, this class was unbearable, and not just because I hated math with every fibre of my being, but...

My Writing Warrior- Part 2

FREE WRITING

    For the first time in her life she felt free. My writing warrior, once brooding and grim, you could tell something changed inside her. She revived herself and came back with the hellfire inside being nothing more than light unlike how it once was. The only warmth she could give herself  feeding off of anger and sin. For the first time she could lay back and feel herself come undone. As if every fibre holding her together unwinded until she...

The Inescapable Visit

FREE WRITING

    The mortuary was as dead as the people inside it, yet for some reason I decide to come. Perhaps it was peer pressure that led me here, wanting to be seen as exciting and not as some wet rag by my brother and his friends. Regardless, I knew I shouldn’t have been here.
    I let out a sob as I took another turn and ended up in the cimmerian living room of the funeral home for the fifth time,...

An Ode to Ms. Hanna

FREE WRITING

Kathleen is a silhouette under the sun
But a fiery aura on top of a dais
She screeches and screams about our conundrum
The sounds of her rage are just part of the fun
Neo-colonialist, anti-humane
If that’s who you are, please know you’re insane
Kathleen will be there to make sure you are tamed
She’ll skip across her stage and ruin your name
Believe me, that’s not all, she’s only just begun
She’ll swing and kick and yell and...

My Writing Warrior

FREE WRITING

    I remember following her home once… if you could even call it a home. It was an abandoned hotel in the middle of the city. The air inside was thick and full of dust and the floor was damp from the rain that would leak in and you could hear the echoes of the water dripping. It was a dark, grim building with the walls torn apart and almost every door knocked off its hinges. It was the scene to...

Poppy Water

FREE WRITING

Needles and blades shine like gold,
But hold more value to madmen like me
I’m aware of how I disturb the sane,
As faces twisted vexed is all there seems to be
Times I’m told that I lack in sagacity
Make me live as if I’ve no mortal fee

Come the days I wake up screaming in vain
And indulge in the blue mood of night
With every blinding cut I feel a ray
Damned and distressed spirit’s light
Soaking...

The Pitiful Pit

FREE WRITING

    Just when I thought the putrid smell couldn’t get any worse, it hit me again with the force of a thousand thunderstorms. The theater in the inn’s courtyard reeked of stale urine, rotten vegetables and body odor that may as well have been a decaying corpse. The pandemonium bounced around the walls and spewed out from the open roof onto the streets outside. Amazingly, I could still hear the dueling between the dog and the bear even over the chattering...

My Mother is a Kettle of Tea

FREE WRITING

My mother is a kettle of tea. There is no routine for tea in my eerily serene home. It is simply spontaneous, but lovely. The boiling city juice isn’t as alarming as it is often mistaken to be. Instead, it creates a steam that delivers warmth throughout the cold home. The flavours range from a lulling chamomile to an eccentric spice dragon. Today’s flavour is earl grey. The ambiance is filled with the delicate fragrance as the teabag is submerged...
