I Didn't Know You Were A Girl

PROMPT: Dialogue Dexterity

“I didn’t know you were a girl.” The words pull me out of my conversation with Jess and Joey about the political crisis of the British Wizarding Ministry from the Harry Potter series.
Kyle sits in the row across from me. He’s been banned from the back of the school bus three times already, but he’s taken to not listening to the rule of him sitting in the front, much to the dismay of those of us in the back....

Castle In The Sky

FREE WRITING

he dreams of heaven sometimes
of the castle in the sky,
where all the pain will stop. 
he stares up at the sky
lying in the field, looking up,
up at where they say that castle stands.

he doesn’t see a castle. 
the field is covered in red
red of flowers and blood alike
hints of brown, from uniforms and dirt underneath.

he dreams of his love, waiting for him
underneath blue-white of a snowy night
he dreams of their...

ronnie's rant 2

FREE WRITING

I just want it to stop. I just want everything to stop for one minute, one second, to be alone and have a chance to be me. I want to be selfishfor once. To think of myself above others, to take care of myself. But I can't. I take care of everyone else, I come second. Not because I'm worthless, because I am not important enough, but because they matter more to me. Their safety, their health, their...

he wishes

PROMPT: Truths and Untruths

I. he wishes he didn't see her every time he looked at his son.
Hazel eyes peering out from behind auburn corkscrew curls,
and the disturbingly knowing smile.

II. he wishes he didn't see him every time he looked at his son,
in the little green coat he bought for the boy,
in the name they share. 

III. he wishes that he hadn't died during the war. 
he had been there when he died, 
holding his hand and whispering promises.

An Open Letter (or My Frustrations with the Public System)

FREE WRITING

One plus one is two. There is no alternative answer.
Blue signifies melancholy, sadness, mourning.
Teach perspective, but yours doesn’t matter.
You teach what you’re told.
You encourage an individual conformation. One by one by one we become uniquely the same.
You preach to the unwilling masses, trying to teach the outdated, overused curriculum.
You stay the same and you don’t change.
Like a language changes with the times, so should an education.
Teach us something we’ll get.
Teach perspectives...

Copycat

FREE WRITING

She stands in front of the mirror
Stares as though she could kill her gaze.
She counts each black spot like sheep before bed,
Each red and pink splotch on her blank face
Grimacing, she reaches for the bag of makeup to the side.
Stroke by stroke.
Layers added on.
Mask painted with experienced hands.
Hours of practice lead to
A perfect imitation of that actress
From that one movie
Who attended that one red carpet.
Her face is painted...

A Glimpse Into The Marriage of Pierre and Hélène

FREE WRITING

they are bothered more than they let on
by their lack of civility for one another,
when they lay in their bed, side by side,
words they wish to say unspoken.
until one night,
it all changes.
they lay in bed,
side by side,
not touching,
staring up at the ceiling,
when she speaks
in the most civil tone between them yet.
"Countess Natalya Rostova is in town."
he turns his head and looks at her,
eyes hidden in the...
