FREE WRITING

I loved the piece, especially the first paragraph. Every line is very effective and the description of sound really transformed the atmosphere, I felt like I could hear everything. The author is very skilled. Well done!!!

You will soon understand love.

PROMPT: Signing Off

This is very well written, I feel like it is straight out of a movie. Feels very personal and gives a clear insight into the author's life, opinions and feelings. For a moment I felt like I was best friends...

PROMPT: Geography of Home

At night I miss the swinging trees
Outside my window in the breeze.
The moon lit sky, a royal gloom, 
That traced the shadows of my room.

I miss the comfort of my bed,
Sense of security I had.
Each sweet return had felt like home,
A thousand stories and then some.

I used to darn having to wait
On busses that were always late,
But now I’d give up anything
To see the fogs the morning brings.

The cold...

PROMPT: Synchronized Sounds

I'd never let such thought inside,
Oh dear if I had known.
No double takes or doubts in mind, 
That night it all had shown.

Our bed was ridden with betrayal
That you had brought upon yourself.
White sheets forever stained in "liar",
You left and didn't need my help.

Perfect illusion crushed at last, 
The truth came flooding out.
His love was weaker than his lust,
I hadn't known about.

For days I drowned in sorry tears ...

Geography of Home

Oxford

At night I miss the swinging trees
Outside my window in the breeze.
The moon lit sky, a royal gloom, 
That traced the shadows of my room.

I miss the comfort of my bed,
Sense of security I had.
Each sweet return had felt like home,
A thousand stories and then some.

I used to darn having to wait
On busses that were always late,
But now I’d give up anything
To see the fogs the morning brings.

The cold grey streets, the stained cement,
The high streets strong distinctive scent,
The cyclists rushing past my eyes
All long before the morning rise.

Same route I took five hundred times
To get to school as the bell chimes.
A crowd of close familiar faces
And memories I can’t replace.

I miss the joy and feeling sound
With friends I always had around,
The days we spent having a stroll
Around the city as a whole.

The smiles and laughs, there...

If Only...

I'd never let such thought inside,
Oh dear if I had known.
No double takes or doubts in mind, 
That night it all had shown.

Our bed was ridden with betrayal
That you had brought upon yourself.
White sheets forever stained in "liar",
You left and didn't need my help.

Perfect illusion crushed at last, 
The truth came flooding out.
His love was weaker than his lust,
I hadn't known about.

For days I drowned in sorry tears
With short lived  gasps for air.
I'd never thought my biggest fear
Was life - without you there.

But just like that I found myself
so lost in lonesome love. 
Numb limbs and lips, and ears deaf
To memories I have.

I cursed the skies for such a turn,
For that dark night's events.
Perhaps if I just hadn't known,
We wouldn't be this mess.

But all's forgiven, and soon forgotten,
If only 'soon' didn't seem so long ...

Somniphobia

Eyes wide open, rush of sparks,
a flood of blood inside,
can’t hide from demons in the dark
Believe me I have tried.

Defying pull of gravity, 
don’t let your lids abide, 
I’d rather face insanity,
Than shadows of the night.

Deficient, ill or broken,
words spoken at my face. 
Insomnic, chronic woken,
These names can’t be erased.

They think they understand it
God if they only knew,
This sense of being stranded
at times of darkest hue.

I know not why this happens,
or why the victim’s me.
a drift is simply trapping,
I’m begging to be free.

At times I wish for ignorance, 
To push the fear aside,
But as I do, their presence,
does not simply subside.

A wave of paranoia,
Just ripples down my back, 
Their violent, vile voices
Are heard from every crack.

Back in this vicious cycle 
but I am not surprised,
I gave up on survival, 
my soul's left paralysed.
