Grief

FREE WRITING

//PLEASE READ THE MESSAGE TO THE READERS, I HAVE A QUESTION//

I saw a drawing of a man locked in a box,
Being weighted down by a bunch of heavy rocks.
The title of it was strong, but brief,
All it said was: grief.

But I found that with it I disagree,
For i don't think that's what grief would be.
For I believe grief would feel quite strangely,
Like you are floating simply and plainly.

I don't think grief...

Lonely

FREE WRITING

The waves chase the shore,
the leaves hang from the trees,
the ceiling has the floor,
and the flowers have their bees.

The clouds are in the sky,
the moon goes with the Earth,
for every laugh there is a cry,
every penny his it's worth.

The light has the darkness,
the bears love honey only,
the world is far too heartless,
for making me feel so lonely.

ATTRACTED TO THE DARKNESS

FREE WRITING

I felt sad and petty,
Then miserable and dumb.
It started to turn to empty.
And then it was numb.

I felt all at once,
Then nothing at all.
I cared too much for everyone,
Then wasn't even bothered to call.

I didn't ask for help
And only got worse.
I felt more distant,
But somehow more at home.

Everyone else
is searching for the lightness.
But truth is:
I'm blinded by the brightness.

Where am I now? Why?

PROMPT: Now to Then

Walking down the busy street,
Dark and wet, yet still full of life.
At this point,
The only things chasing away the darkness that night brings
Are the cars passing by
And the street lights shining bright.
I am running back home,
Returning from dance practice
Sweat being washed away by the heavy rain.
But I don’t mind it one bit.
 
After all,
That’s why I moved here.
My first night here was very similar,
Rain drops falling from...

You make you

FREE WRITING

You need to build yourself up.

You have a vessel,
and a soul in the shape of things
other people say and believe in.

But it is not the shape you want.

Not the shape of you.

You get to decide what your shape is.
To build it.
To model it.

You make you,
so start building today.
