The game of pretendence.

FREE WRITING

Big, black, bold headlines titled
Bland is the new unique!
I thrust the magazine aside
Everything is make-believe
An uncanny illusion,
Of the unreal within surreal.
Phantasmagoric,                          
A deceptive appearance.
I sneak a glance
At their empty faces             
Because  everyone is pretending,
And everything is pretence.
A mockery of reality,
And a mockery of ourselves.

I want to grab them by the shoulder,
And shake them back to life
I feel the panic building up
Makeup, hookup, please,...

Climate Crisis.

FREE WRITING

A few decades ago, scientist were predicting an ice age. Now, global warming threatens our very existence. The climate is changing and humans stand responsible. Glacial retreat, global temperature rise, increased carbon dioxide and other emissions in the atmosphere, warming oceans, ice sheets shrinking and a rise in sea level. A handful of the many effects our presence on this Earth has caused. More accurately, what our choices has caused.

We have proudly named our species homo sapiens, meaning wise...

Blue Skies

FREE WRITING

I stood there. My loose hair swaying in the wind. It's all gone. Soon enough, I'll be gone too. A million things flashed through my mind. I lift my wings, preparing. I smiled to myself, as the breeze ruffled my feathers. I tried to remember what it looked like before.
Blue skies, I thought.
Blue skies, as I spread my wings.

Spin. Measure. Cut.

FREE WRITING

Spin. Measure. Cut.
Fates’ cruel decrees.
Spinning all in and out of existence.

Lungs aching, head pounding. Shadows creeping up behind me, darkness on the verge of swallowing me whole. The hunter. Is coming.
I start running, nowhere and everywhere, anywhere but here.
