​5th Grade

PROMPT: Other Worlds

We sat on the rug in the center of the classroom, listening to Mrs.B read Maniac Magee in her animated, slow, and calm voice. Every word she said I latched onto, a smile playing across my face. All 24 of us with our legs criss cross apple sauced, our hands neatly fold in our laps, a slight slouch in our backs, eyes staring ahead, almost looking at every word that left her mouth. She flipped the page and said the...

Blame the Fun and Games

FREE WRITING

You see it is funny
To yell at me when I sit in the back of the car
    At every single comment I make
And it is hilarious
    To laugh at me always
And it is a knee slapper to talk
    About how I’m “wack”

And I’ll laugh even more
    When you’re standing with other people
Who are silly
    Who are your friends
And you don’t yell at them about how they’re wack
Or don’t...

I was a silly, little, arts and crafts project.
Buttons, fabric, lace

I was a silly little arts and crafts project.

Tendrils

FREE WRITING

1:Of Anxiety
A terrible tendril of anxiety
I couldn't move
Through the daily debacle
I wanted to be unstuck

I couldn't move
Everything was dark
I wanted to be unstuck
Hands quickly quivering

Everything was dark
Pulsing heart
Hands quickly quivering
Fidgety fingers, sweaty palms

Pulsing heart
Through the daily debacle
Fidgety fingers, sweaty palms
A terrible tendril of anxiety

2:Of Comfort
A twinkly tendril of comfort
I sunk in
Forgetting all my frets
Everything was okay

I sunk in ...

I Am

FREE WRITING

I look like a red maraca
   shaking and moving, making a rhythm
I am the soft sound of a
   meep, or a yelp, or the hitch in someone's breath
       ripping the silence where a pin drop sounds too loud
I remember the fear of the black box
   I remember becoming it.
   I remember being it.
I remember quivering hands
   And slippery cheeks
   And lungs gulping for air
                    but I let go.

I am a beanbag
    overused
    slowly losing its form ...

Captured Feelings

FREE WRITING


She wanted to take those hours, minutes, seconds of radiating warmth
    to hold on to the feeling of a hand in hers
        Cautiously she shoved it in her bottle.
She wanted to keep those moments of tears being wiped away
    of arms so big and warm, squeezing her till she smiled
        So, cautiously, she shoved it in her bottle.
She lays in bed at night
    Bottle tucked away
    Snuggling up with feelings...
