My name is Meloni and I enjoy writing poetry. I will sometimes write short stories but most of the time it is just poetry.

Resurrection

FREE WRITING

Rain gently caressed my skin, sending chills down my spine. I could care less though. He was standing right in front of me. Memories flooded my mind and I drowned within my thoughts.I looked down at my hands, they were trembling, but they were there. How was this happening? How am I here? My entire body felt weak as the panic consumed me.
“Zoe… oh my gosh it worked!” he cried out in relife. I couldn’t hear him though, not...

One Job

FREE WRITING

Those eyes, so wide, so pure, so innocent. They crinkle with delight and laughter, always filled with contagious joy. They’re never sad or tainted with despair. We can’t ever let that change, we can’t let those eyes witness all the evil and pain around them. That was our job, our one and only job and we failed, oh how we failed. Those eyes, you would never know, you would never know the love and joy they once expressed. Not any...

Life of a Toy

FREE WRITING

Xaver is my name and I’ve been here for about 16 years. When I was younger I used to go everywhere, now not so much. I used to have tea parties with all my friends, but now most of them are gone, living in different rooms or other houses all together. I used to sleep in a bed at night with a giant purple quilt, but now I lay on a hard wooden floor without a quilt or friends to...

Drowning

FREE WRITING

Your brother crawls across the rocks, trembling
Your youth pastor convinces him to go in without a tube
The white water claims him as he makes his way down
You just stand there barefoot, waiting, watching
The other’s voices drown out
As you calmly follow his body with your eyes
Not blinking, not for a second
Cold water rolls down your body having just got out yourself
He’s made it a quarter of the way down
Right in front of...

This Place

FREE WRITING

This place
It will hold you  captive.
The more you try and get away the harder it will try to keep you here.
The more you struggle the tighter its grip on you becomes.
There is no escape from this place
No matter how hard you try
How hard you wish
How hard you hope
Or pray
Or cry
It will hold you
It will hold you close
Like you are a loved one it doesn’t want to say goodbye...

Ode to My Voice

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

This voice,
The voice you are hearing now,
This is my voice, so listen up.
You say I’m too young,
That I don’t understand
You won't let me speak out the words I’m dying to say.
Screaming through my silence
My voice is drowned out in a chorus of others
Others who are older
Because apparently the only voices that matter are the ones that flow from you.
What will it take for you to hear me
And actually listen? ...

As a Girl

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2019

As a girl I’m supposed to be calm and poised,
Delicate and dainty.
I shouldn’t be well built and strong.
I should stand tall with proper posture,
And know how to hold my tongue,
Not talking whenever I please.
I should wear short shorts and skin tight shirts.
I should have push up bras and thongs that ride up my ass.
I should be an artist just so I can wake up every morning and paint a new mask.
I...
