PROMPT: Open Prompt

I thought this poem was fantastic! The story that you wanted to tell was beautifully conveyed, and I definitely will never hear the phrase, "Good night, I love you" the same way again.

They Have Stolen From Us

FREE WRITING

    No, no, no. This can't be real, please let it be a lie. Please let their be a way to fix this, I thought as I heard the news. Everything we had worked for in the past three years would be for nothing, all of the time and effort poured into perfecting our craft rendered worthless in an instant. 
    The room was silent as we heard the news, the messenger's tears streaming down their face as they struggled to...

Memory of A Sunset

FREE WRITING

Across an ocean another brilliant sunset ignites paradise,
flames dancing over waves, mesmerizing
a little girl who watches from the shore, staring out to sea
as the sun lowers to meet the waves, dipping down
to draw them closer and set them aflame.
She creeps closer to the water hungrily
lapping at the shore, transfixed by the light bouncing
off the waves. Her toes reach the water, curling
into wet sand. She watches the waves, broken shards of mirror reflecting ...

Empty of Words

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I'm out of words,
out of ideas.
No destinies floating around in my mind,
No character's lives to create and destroy,
the type of a key, the stroke of a pen
simultaneously their beginning and their end.
Maybe there's too much, 
Too many converging and twisting,
intertwining spirals of thought,
Running circles in my mind,
Driving me crazy all the time.
Tripping over themselves in a frenzy,
Desperately seeking a home on a page,
As if it were respite from...

I Love You | #ForgivenessFGE

FREE WRITING

This poem was beautiful and heartbreaking all at once. I loved the raw emotion that you channeled at the end, which tied together all of you earlier stanzas, and provided the reader with some context.

Vista of Smoke

PROMPT: The Vistas Beyond

    The smoke drifted through the sky, twisting in lazy spirals, caressing the tree branches as it journeyed upward, fanning out and exploring new frontiers. It pushed the stars out of its way as it moved over the sky, blotting out even the moon; it was a hungry, starving thing that could not satieted as it ate through forests and buildings, drifted over lakes and rivers, collected thickly in now-brown valleys, like water growing stagnant in a well.The smoke came towards...
