The One Who Wore A Golden Mask

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition 2018

I had a dream last night; a dream about a monster who wore a golden mask.
    He dressed in fine clothes and his hair shone brightly in the candlelight. Hidden in plain sight, I recall now. Of course, back then I didn't know the depths of his cruelty, nor did I suspect that he was anything other than the man I was falling in love with.
    In my dream he asked me to dance; a quick bend of...

when we were younger
i remember
we'd walk around the field
and watch the boys play soccer

and we'd laugh because we got to talk
while they scraped their knees

and we'd gossip about whether 
our teachers had secret lives that we didn't know about
and how ms. fullerton had been eating pudding that day in class

i gripped your purple cast as you led me towards the trees
that seemed miles high
and hid there while you carried secret...

Dear Senior Year

FREE WRITING

Dear Senior Year,

I used to love to read. I still do. But it’s not like it was. 

I used to live for the moments 
I could run between the words 
and slip into the creases of the pages, 
as if there were no anchors tethering me to the real world. 

I used to be okay with the fact 
that I was having nonfictional feelings 
about fictional characters. 

I used to live in the books I read, 
because my dreams...

Timeless

FREE WRITING

Our love lived between the lines. 

There was no rush, 
no lingering sense of time or place. 

Only timeless tenderness; 
a love so wholesome 
that the rest of our lives 
didn’t seem to exist 
without one another. 

I heard echoed tones of yearning 
underneath each touch of your fingers 
to the keys of our piano. 
Every note was a memory, 
a sweet pang of haunted recollection.

And when the music crescendoed, 
the world s t o p p e d  ...

How To Be A Crayon

FREE WRITING

Try not to lose your clothes;
it’s unappealing.

Dance across colored construction paper,
spreading vibrant vitality
in vertical lines
across hills of misspelled words
and bumpy staples
buried in folds and creases.

Crack and crumble
like sand castles in the wind,
but never fall out of your child’s hand,
for you are that
that exemplifies their unabashed imagination.

Stay true to yourself
and the bright ideas
you help create.
