Stop Your Heart

PROMPT: Micro Memoir

Please don’t fall in love again. Even now, as I lean on you, as I feel your heartbeat, I can imagine you with someone else. Someone else who makes you laugh. Someone else who makes you glow. Someone else you share a soul with. 

You tell me you’d never leave me. You say the words over and over again, but I can’t stop my heart. What if you can’t stop yourheart? What if she’s beautiful, what if she’s kind,...

The Broken Hour

FREE WRITING

It is 3am.
I sit on my bed,
Blankets pushed aside,
Telling the world I know it’s not asleep.
While it may be a cold night,
I feel the heat on my back,
The heat of you, of all of you,
And your whispers,
Oh, your whispers.
The heat turns into the crawling,
Into the squirming up my spine,
Into the writhing into my head,
And finally, it reaches the brain.
Explosion.
I hear you, world.
I knewyou weren’t...

The Girl Who's Always Been

PROMPT: Open Prompt

“Why?”

The question tore out of my throat, my voice quivering. My father was across me, his hands mirroring mine as they sat behind his back. I searched his face, but it was unmoving and flat. The skin on the small of my back crawled.

“Just tell me why. Please.” My voice broke with desperation.

I hated it. I hated that he could keep me in purgatory, searching for answers and meaning. I hated that he could twist my putty...

A Hush #Lovegood_24'sContest

FREE WRITING

On the horizon, the hint of the monster,
Peering through the mountains.
It’s not yet over,
But, for now,
I can rest.

Legs folded on the top of the hill,
Debris surrounding me.
Moments ago they were tossed by the enemy,
But, for now,
It can rest.

Ten minutes later,
And I hear your whine.
Loyal eyes lose their light.
Sorry, friend,
You can now rest.

In the eye of the hurricane,
There is quiet
For just a moment-
A...

my friend, the ocean

PROMPT: Water Body

I make my way to you,
Moonlight reflecting,
Silent, vigilant,
Asking what I’m doing.
“I don’t know,”
I whisper to your waves
Then your tide hugs my ankles
It’s alright, it’s alright.
As I sit, slightly soaked,
You show me a sweet melody,
A steady beat with a lilting harmony,
And I breathe-
In and out and in and out-
With your song.

The Steps to a Cycle

PROMPT: 0-9

One is a hesitant embrace. My head hiding in a sea of blue sweatshirt. Your calming cologne.

Two is little whispers of sweet nothings. My head on resting on your shoulder. Your soft humming.

Three is a disagreement over the remote. My head shaking slowly. Your half-joking, half-serious smile.

Four is a little snide comment. My head craning to examine my short skirt. Your eyes boring a hole into me.

Fiveis a streak of jealousy. My head resting on...
