PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

I fight the urge  

To shout, "I love you!"

I fight the urge

To wrap my arms around your neck

I fight urge  

To laugh at every joke you make

To smile when you smile,

To complement your eyes,

Or your brown highlighted hair

I fight the urge  

To not look you in the eye

Because of just one look  

And you would see that I love you...


If only she'd known then

maybe if id...

HELP NEEDED!!

FREE WRITING

hey, I'm writing a really important research paper, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in peer reviewing it? I wouldn't be able to pay anything, but I would be willing to help in return if anyone needed help writing something. 

think about it, and even if you can't or don't want to read the whole thing, a little help can go a long way.

hope

FREE WRITING

You see I’ve always let myself be hopeful

hopeful that some guy will like me
One day I walk in and he turns his head
In that moment it’s only me and him

hopeful my parents’ screaming finally stops
The vibrations reverberating In my head spill-out
My brain finally lets me think clearly

Hopeful that one day I’ll stop chasing my hopes maybe one day I’ll finally realize
the way people treat me is not okay

These hopes are merely...

i don't know what to say

FREE WRITING

How do we know when to be brave?
We ask for a sign, then don't take it.
Should I take this leap of faith?
Will I become Icarus and fly to close to the sun?
How does anyone know what might happen?
What good or bad might come when I let these words leave my brain?
How should I handle this uncertainty?

I feel like I've run out of words to say
to somehow show you what I feel inside
how my heart flutters

my life

FREE WRITING

I can't help this constant catatonic catastrophe
my brain is building, breaking and boiling out
til death do us part, what a dauntless day
I'm flying, falling, faking it now 
guess the geyser that is my heart is going out
hopefully, my home isn't hopeless how
can something so sanctimonious show me out

my feelings toward you

FREE WRITING

I sit here and think 
of the millions of ways
you made me feel 
special

I thought I would 
never love again
because of what he did 
to me 

you seemed a little different
cute and kind
like you were one 
of the good guys

you caught my heart
with your looks
but you kept it 
with your mind

resources of my world

PROMPT: Library Magic

my library has always been large
my parents, my siblings, my friends
so many ways to learn and gather 
information for my little mind 
to grow and grow and understand
acceptance, equality, safety
knowing what I can do
to make this world a better place

my library has always been large
my room, my office, my archives
different places to adventure and discover
movies I see within my soul
to fly and seek and wonder
bravery, strength, empathy 
knowing how I...
