Social Anxiety

I know that I should speak.

The idea begins like a whisper. The mist that curls up around a sunny glade until nothing is left but shadow, and all that can be heard is the ringing of some far off bell. It is the temptation of risk: a moving object gaining speed and momentum as the idea grows. A wish that rushes towards fruition, until it sees the jump it must take to do so.

The words hang on the...

Extraordinary Studies

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Backpacks hold books, stories,
Portals to another far off world.
Classrooms fill with inspiration
As if it is a spell cast over students.
Teachers are sages and wizards,
Revealing the magic hidden in the world.
We walk (castle, dungeon) hallways,
And speak to friends, our companions,
In these grand adventures we take.

Dear Younger Me (and You)

FREE WRITING

Dear Younger Me (and You),

I’m sorry, but unfortunately, you are terribly wrong. You see, there is so much to live for. There is still so much innocent beauty in this world. There is so much good left. 

Even when everything seems dark, and broken, and your sadness drips down your broken collarbone into the place you thought you heart was… even when the pain of living consumes you, even when you feel the world is permanently lost to corrupt...

trying to stay hopeful

FREE WRITING

darkness & sadness,
hidden journal cliches.
i am broken.
metaphors after metaphors.
shattered glass, spreading stains,
fear. fear. fear.
moments like these
i feel i will never escape.
abundant worry, desperation.
The Dark Ages.

but, i suppose, in the end,
for every broken, bleeding time,
there has been two
golden hours, simple peace.
twice as many moments where
i finally felt at home. listening to 
music, art, family speaking.

for every cobweb thought
there have been a thousand
of creativity....

Grassy Hills

FREE WRITING

The Traveler was exhausted. His legs ached from being on horseback for days, and his eyes were leaden from lack of sleep. The armor he wore seemed heavier with every step. His horse, although faithful and surefooted, had begun to stumble and was no longer able to run at a moment’s notice. Passing the riddle test at the bridge that no law far behind him had sapped much of his strength. But at least now he was in Green Hills,...

spooky friend

FREE WRITING

there’s a monster in the doorway,
a weapon in his hands.
he’s a mixture of a ghoul or ghost,
and a mummy of the sands.
the darkness that is hiding me,
his two glowing, great eyes pierce.
the wind howls behind his back,
weather dangerous and fierce.
a tree outside sways,
not much taller than this beast.
he stands on maimed and crooked legs,
could it be that he looks for a human feast?
he steps in the doorway,
