Trying to Recall

FREE WRITING

Trying to recall
moments
looking at a photograph of a moment
an insatiable glimmer of childhood 
a flickering flame from a fire that was already put out

to have you as a friend 

Just because we are connected by the blood in our veins
does not mean I now know you at all 

that's why I am trying to recall

An Ode to Perfectionists

FREE WRITING

From the inconsistencies of my being,

Inner Monologue

FREE WRITING

Does everyone hate me?
I just want to make sure

I mistake empty reactions as whole disengagements
You don't want me to be your source and that's ok.

I'm not actually sure of any of this
But I could swear it on my life.

If you do hate me, could you please let me know?
I'm tired of the guessing game

Please just leave me with a flip of a switch
Turn my lights off

I'd rather live in the...

The Musician

PROMPT: Creative Nonfiction Competition 2020

    Who was going to tell me that learning the guitar is such a daunting task?
    When I bought my first guitar this past summer, I discovered that seamlessly strumming pleasant sounds is a gradual process. The first stage of playing the guitar was a mysterious abyss. My brain navigated a new neural pathway, sculpted with sharp edges of chord progressions and fingerpicking that I undoubtedly crashed into. I struggled with the most fundamental of guitar growing...
