— to dream in syria

FREE WRITING

bonfire of dreams.

in a city riddled with rusted blades and torn hides, an army of ghosts lay glistening under the tired moonlight. tomorrow rains blood upon us in a macabre rhythm; silence and chaos in equal intervals, a requiem for the lost and weary.

bonfire of dreams.

we have sacrificed ourselves in this earnest sorrow, this yearning to find ourselves worthy of living. there is futility in this agonizing effort; a fate that is as ancient as...

​These days, I swear I see you in the slight shift of the curtains and the way the sunlight hits the window pane.


I see you in the smooth waves that come crashing onto the shore, and I see you in the sunflower field wearing your white summer dress, and I see you amongst the faces in the crowd when I spin my golden tunes and the world explodes, and I see you in the whiff of bitter coffee and...

PROMPT: Returning





A whiff of the grass, a solemn kiss with the sand, and it's like you've begun breathing again.

You take it in. 
It doesn't quite hurt like you supposed it would. It just. . . is. Like you had expected a plethora of transformations, an insanity behind the graffiti infested gates, a subtle sorrow in the withering flower beds. 
A soft breeze tickles the spaces between your fingers and the tree trunks that you touch achingly. You recall...

she said she ate toothpaste and melancholy, and i am not sure i understand, but i let myself be caught in her reverie.

her skin is of the color of the unrelenting mountains; steep, deceptive, a head full of sky. she said i tasted like death, and when i look at her fierce tears when she kisses me, i comply.

the end

FREE WRITING




icecoffeerings;
you spin yarns of hatred.
i am old fashioned and
prim and you loved me
all the same.



or so you said.



roses wilt, chocolates melt,
the kettle is screaming and
so am i;
despite the flower wallpaper
and the eggs sunny side up;
you sing to break glass.



i like what you said; 
that 
it is
the end,
not 
the end.

kill your darlings

FREE WRITING

There is no name for this fear; this ceaseless pounding inside the corner of your skull, the goosebumps dotting the precipice of your skin.

There is no name for a fear like this.

Instead, you swallow it whole; bones, blood, words, the corrosive fingers strangling the breath out of your lungs.

When the stars collide and your world begins to end, kill your darlings. Kill your darlings and bury them inside out— the soft curves of their intestines and the...

we like to dot our maps with the atrocities we imprint on the skins of our women.

silence; a virtue, a boon, a safeguard. when the alleyways beckon the sleeping beast inside us, we lurk in the shadows, aching to carve our vices in the crevices of your bones.

blazing is our touch, fiery are the fingers covering your mouth, and slowly, you learn to swallow the ache in your screams.

we smile at your helplessness. we caress your...

saudade

FREE WRITING

 saudade (n) : a feeling of longing, melancholy, or nostalgia 

when i was thirteen, i preferred plaids over polka dots, wind chimes over dreamcatchers, and heartbeats over indifference. 


these days, clothes wear out faster than i wear them, the winds die down between the fractures of the whispering ghosts, and the hearts have learnt the lost art of sorrow.
