Poetry helps us preserve the present moment, as if we could take a photo of right now and keep it forever.

barriers

FREE WRITING

my face pressed up against the bars of the fence
i reach my arm through,
grabbing, grasping
at any hint of you I can touch.
the lock on the gate
rusted shut with time and disuse 
serves as the only blockade between your fingertips and mine.
we give this lock so much power
blinded in our mental state as we are
the ability to hold us apart,
granted only through our own self doubt.

this, in all its awkwardness

FREE WRITING

who could have guessed 
that a mere glance would have created this?
this,
whatever it is,
with its faults and its skips
with its akwardness and its nervous smiles
that have become so important to us both.
from cautious touches to long nights under the stars 
together 
we take on the world
in the only way we know how.
i mean to say
we’ve never been conventional anyhow.
why start now?
they hold us back but
with hands locked and...

what’s anxiety to a child?

PROMPT: Unconventional

Remember when we were kids?
Every day was new, and every day was exciting. 
We held all the power in the world.
Rules didn’t exist,
we made up our
own
and followed them
as we
pleased. 
Our imaginations were
bigger than we knew 
chronicles upon chronicles of memories 
that would become irrelevant in only 
few year’s
time. 
the austere reality of the world 
lay far ahead 
untouched by a single thought in our 
minds
a distant future 
in which anxiety  ...

Ego Audiam

FREE WRITING

I listen
for in music I am granted the privilege 
of a world all my own.
I can create anything and everything
from the demons that plague my soul
to the angels that make it worthwhile.
I close my eyes
become the author to my own story
with my own soundtrack.
In which I can live a life of my choosing
where I can be myself
instead of the me others created.

She Feels Nothing

FREE WRITING

a hand on her back,
a soft touch on her wrist,
a gentle shove and a laugh,
and yet
she feels nothing 
anymore.

A Replication of Mother Nature

PROMPT: Environmental Writing Competition September 2018

The whispers you hear in the back of your mind
gentle, yet commanding
are none other than Earth
as she strains her voice to be heard.

She screams and yet we ignore.
We, bystanders to the worst crime on humanity,
pass by her without a second glance.

We destroy her slowly, 
break her down without remorse,
yet we then turn around and celebrate her,
decorate her humiliation in our home and weave her despair into our clothing.

What she used to offer...
