Mask ON. Mask OFF.


Turn off the lights.

                                                        No, leave them on.

Scared of being alone?

                                                        Who were you again?

Take off your mask.

                                                        Where does it end, and where do I begin?

 Running like a rat? Ridiculous.

                                                        Does it matter if I am?

                                                        In the end,

                                                        I am always

I don't know what to do.

I've been feeling down lately,
The future doesn't look bright,
I'm wandering...

PROMPT: My December Competition 2019

    I push the heavy curtains blocking the doorway to La Bamba forward, the cold air rushing past me and into the entry way of the restaurant. I hold the curtains for my friends, and they each utter a "Thanks" as they exit La Bamba. We re-group properly once everyone is through, and stand on the pavement together, watching the snow fall from the sky. It doesn't rain often in Beijing, let alone snow. Winter winds are usually biting and dry....

Why I Write

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write when I am bored, or just for fun.
I write to bring smiles, even if it's a simple pun.
I write to express the real me.
I write to escape reality.
I write to preserve memories.

Me in Threes

PROMPT: YOU in threes

  1. Three quirks or idiosyncrasies.
    Lip biting, leg bouncing, twisting rings I wear on my right middle finger using my right thumb when I'm bored.

    Bisexual, being a British-born Chinese, insomniac.
  3. Three adjectives your peers would use to describe you.
    Nice, helpful, smart.
  4. Three adjectives your family would use.
