I love writing poetry and I also love what you're wearing today.

Reading is like breathing in, writing is just like breathing out.

Doll of A House

FREE WRITING

I'm dolled up, faked up, maked-up, hated-up, torn up, pieced-up, glued-up and I have to cover it all up. I'm the doll of the house. I'm rested on the mantle, until playtime. I'm not recognized. I never eat, I'm only given attention for my beauty and entertainment. I'm dressed-up, covered-up, beautied-up and placed up on top of a mantle. No one cares about me. I tear up at nights. Rip the dresses of me. Wipe the Crayola off my skin....

Mirrors and Galaxies are the Same

I think this poem is great and I'm also a bit surprised that it was done only for Creative Writing Class, not to be rude. It sounds like a world winning poetry to me. I love it! Keep up the...

They

FREE WRITING

They give you freedom of speech. Yet you can't speak freely. They say write what you feel, yet they punish you when you do. They say enjoy life, yet there is nothing to enjoy. They say "live, love, laugh", yet I only, "exist, hate, cry." They give you freedom and take it away. What's the purpose in the first place?

My Unreal Paradise, Jamaica

PROMPT: Travel Writing Competition 2018

I closed my eyes, picturing an awe-inspiring scenery of coastlines. A land of finesse elegance and pulsating adventure. The scortching sun  warms the sands and the audible whisper of the sea, lures me in to take a dip in its crystal blueness.

The cool and refreshing breeze slightly sways the elongated palm trees. The wild plants bend their heads away from the sun, the white clouds forming chariots in the blue sky.

I visit this land everyday.

A land so...

Lady and a Wife

FREE WRITING

"Kind sir", she started, her lips perched on her face. She was destructive, aggressive and wore nothing but lace. She need not a man to tell her her price, she was elegant, rich and had beady eyes. "I beg your pardon, for not washing the dishes. I simply never cared about the undone house work, your wishes . I'm a lady, not a dog, you old brute!" She cursed at me, she was anything but cute. She huffed angrily, turned...

The Strange Words of a Reporter

FREE WRITING

Dressed in red satin from head to toe, she walked in the building as if it was her own. Six inch heels, she walked in strutting, booty on top, in need of some loving. Goddamn, she strutted like no one's honey, sweet flavoured scent, honey-dew, and sunny. She murdered everyone, with dripping finesse, and I had to book it down, the reporter, a witness .

A Crime Scene

FREE WRITING

There's been a murder, a woman was killed,
found in a bathtub, partially filled.

A pair of policemen went into the house
and questioned the poor woman's spouse.

He'd just come home from working all night
and found her like that, a terrible sight.

The younger policeman looked on with dismay.
He'd never forget that terrible day.

He saw the young woman from behind the door
and empty milk cartons all over the floor,

Scattered strawberries, slices of fruit,
and...

I lived for the moments where I've corrupted you and made you unholy. That's the moment you're the most beautiful to me .
