Hello! Writing is my form of peace. My goal is to convey how I feel, as clearly, as powerfully as I can. Hope you enjoy.

*Note: Being technologically inept, I'm clueless as to how I can tag fellow writers in comments. Seeing all your kind comments truly makes my day, it really does. So even if I don't reply, just know that I'm beaming like an idiot whilst scrolling through my phone.

a soft hum, 
a flickering breath,
lapping waves.
she is substanceless
as it slips and glides
down the rail beams.

her mind sways 
and sways,
dumbbells hanging
onto her eyelids.
trees rush by, 
swallowing her
in green, green, green.

once again

Time: a miracle cure that heals all wounds. You will emerge as a new person, stronger than ever, and everything before will just dissolve into a bad nightmare. That's what they said, anyway.

What lies.

The girl stands before his office door. She had sworn to distance herself, but here she is, plating herself like a present before his office. A homing pigeon. 

My chance to test myself, she thinks bitterly. 

Five seconds after her knock, the door...

it's all a dream #paperbirdcontest

FREE WRITING


A black suited man sits across me, elbows on the table, fingers locked under a clean shaven chin. His black eyes creep across my face like scuttling insects. 

“What happened?” he asks.

A knife stabs at the back of my skull: the pain sends a blinding, violent flash of white across my eyes. Images swirl in my head, fragments of a nightmare surfacing then sinking back down, slipping from my grasp like a wet bar of soap. Monstrous, roaring flames,...

Let us toss
the seeds of our love
into the winds above.

Let them be carried
down the murmuring
waters of alpine springs;
down the dark chiasms
of unsought beings;

Over golden valleys
that roll endlessly on;

the whole world
collapse
into
ashes and flames.

I suppose this is our last class.

She smiled at his words. No, she didn't hate him. Only if she did. 

Only if she did.

Everyday was exhausting: the searing pain of seeing him around - his radiant smile, his celestial green eyes, his crisp navy suit - was unbearable. And to have to keep a stoic mask, to swallow the lump in her throat whenever he beamed at another student - yes, it was good he was leaving.

in the shadows

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

The rose bushes were in full bloom: their crimson petals spilled open against the dark green leaves, and their shadows, mottled with specks of sunlight, fell around the girl, on her arms and on her book.

Leaning against the wooden bench, she leafed through the pages with ease, soaking up each word with delight and blithe. The girl’s eyes flickered from one line to the next, like a restless candle flame, totally absorbed by the pages, till the grassy lawn,...
