Hopelessly addicted to metaphors!
Constantly daydreaming.
Is very desperate for a daily, three-hour English grammar lesson.
Resorts to poetry for (in)sanity.
Usually writes when reality gets too hard to breathe in.

Message from Writer

I wish you all daily happiness...

Don't forget to go over that manuscript once, or twice, or fifteen more times!

. . . .
I carry you with me into the world,
into the smell of rain
& the words that dance between people
& for me, it will always be this way,
walking in the light,
remembering being alive together”
― Brian Andreas

(I love this and the smell of rain.)

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020


 Mother carries little green Jack outside, where the afternoon sky looks like white fur drenched in tar, then rinsed half-heartedly.

She also spoke tales of dolphins, magpies, and trees outside guarded vaults. “Trees weren't forbidden then,” she had whispered, slipping into her white coat before administering some glowing medicinal syrups to Jack. She vowed he'll bring the world back to life someday.

When Sleep Goes To Sleep

PROMPT: Lyrical Stratum


Sleep is distant. Frozen with coffee. Sundered by my own fingers, beckoning words to the computer screen. My eyes stay awake, whilst sleep paints darkness on the skin underneath them. Midnight dwells on the strand of honey hanging between the long and short hands of the clock. Then sleeping, or its silhouette, is someplace else. Maybe in sunrise. Maybe in the empty cup of coffee. Or maybe, sleep is just asleep right now.

When Left Behind

PROMPT: Refuge

Refuge is the song I want to listen to
 in a room full of pens and paper
when the gears in my head turn against one another
 and the trains don’t stop for a lost passenger
