Lyrical Escapes

PROMPT: Open Prompt

she loved the music
because it gave an escape
from the thoughts,
lack of feeling
she could leave her story 
for just three minutes
to be part of someone else's
and tell it with feeling. 
she could be human
for only three minutes-
three. minutes.
 and that's the only  thing
that made it worth breathing

-music is a beautiful escape

No Place Like Home.

FREE WRITING

   As human beings, we rely solely on the environment we are surrounded in. Whether it be a country, a town, a city, a village- anywhere- we all rely on the environment around us because the environment provides us with a home. Environment provides us with a place to belong.

The Frayed Rope

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

It’s long
And frayed.
The ends
Expand
Into trillions of strands-
And I’m holding on
By the weakest thread.
 
I used to be
On the top of this rope.
Accomplished
Strong
I used to have hope.
 
But then
Came catastrophe.
It knocked me down

Darkness

PROMPT: Acrostic Verse
