"Loner"

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

    Before, my life felt like a factory: mass-produced days that repeated endlessly. A feeling that I would drift through the present, simply dragged foward by inertia. A sense that the person I was now and the person I used to be had become strangers, like when two old friends meet again and realize that they don't know what to say to each other anymore.

Boredom

FREE WRITING

Each moment becomes a fine grain of rice, 
so small any texture or taste has disappeared.
Time carefully picks them up and places them on my tongue, 
one after another in a line in a way
that causes a minute to dissolve into an hour, an eternity. 
Yet these moments nourish me. 
The sweetness of triumphs, the spice of surprises, the sourness of disappointments,

Therefore, I'll try to savor...

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

A cracked, flickering lightbulb hangs by a thread,
spitting out sparks to greet me.

The stark white blankets and pillows
match the mopped floor. 
As if they wanted to leave this place pure, fit
for the still bodies resting under the sheets.

if no one could see it, is it still art?
life from the lifeless, a painted heart

One Thousand Paper Cranes

Folding and folding
my first paper crane
If I fold 1000
he'll get better again

Folding and folding
my 125th paper crane
For our peaceful days
now colored with pain

I wonder how he's doing...
Does he think about me?

Fly

FREE WRITING

A girl splayed out on the black asphalt,
arms and legs numb and twitching.
Suffocating under the weight of the sky,
a dreary gray blanketing the city.

Despite her open eyes, she was too
caught up in her own musings
to notice even her family in the crowd,
their frantic voices echoing in the caverns
