Cotton candy

FREE WRITING

I feel like I swallowed a cloud.
it's dense and heavy
just like Cotton Candy 
it spreads, wide and vast, 
its sweetness too light 
so light it tastes salty,
melting into nothingness,

clumping, 
and choking, 

Taking a deep breath in feels like 
swallowing another cloud that 
never stops forcing its way up
my 
  my th-throat 

I choke it back 
suddenly 

it's no longer dense 

there's no saltiness and it's almost like
I was at a fair.

We were best friends?

FREE WRITING

What's sad is that 
what it used to be, 
isn't what it used to be
anymore. 
And you miss it too much.
And you're not sure 
why you share the same space 
but 
no longer share your thoughts. 

Not sure why you stand a feet 
apart, 
separated by silence, 
the obvious lack of words exchanged between.
When you never used to have 
enough time together. 
Unspoken secrets and knowing smiles
now exchanged with someone else. 

Not sure if you

Not me

FREE WRITING

I blame the moon 
for not aligning the stars 
I blame the sky 
for the Sun's burning rays 

The rays reflect off 
shining as bright as day 
Blinding me.
I curse it for my obscured vision 

The air around me 
suffocates - no: 
it kisses me lightly 
misty and dense 
I hate it! I blame it on 
everything 

Everything else. 
Because I wouldn't be irrational. 
Not me. 
Narrowed vision. 
That's not me. 
The heaviness in the air.
It's not me.  ...

Yours truly

FREE WRITING

You smile a souless one 
and wink a meaningless one 

Your lack of care 
without a thought 

causes me to understand 
the famine You bring 
to one powerless in 
Yours truly 

when the sky falls 
and the ground splits 

your crocodile tears 
and raspy prayers 

will no longer fool
My lonesome heart

Mirror mirror

FREE WRITING

Mirror mirror on the wall, 
why does his smile look different 
from the one he had before? 

Don't smile only to her, 
smile to me too
Let it reach your eyes
let your teeth show 
how bright you really are 
from inside and out 

Why 
do you show the sky 
a different smile 
from the one you show 
the ground?

The ground yearns for your 
affection,
in a different way from 
the sky that still rains
and drenches you 

Please...

Meteorite

FREE WRITING

If beyond infinity was where I longed to be, 
would standing on the richest soil help me reach beyond my fingertips? 
Should I hop the clouds and aim for the sun, 
hoping it would glisten a silver lining for me to grasp? 
 
Will the silver line cut my fingers as I grapple with the winds? 
Or would landing on the moon stage my dream to help ease my longing? 

Perhaps my days of hurricane might bring me over the...
