Isolated

FREE WRITING

A fish swimming without a school
A child drowning in a pool

A tear drying into stone
A heart torn straight to the bone

I'll be a book with an unfinished end
You'll be my friend, let's pretend

I feel hated
I feel sedated

Isolated—
All alone.

Falling

FREE WRITING

Falling,
Or maybe failing.
It's quite hard to tell the difference.

The letter I ,
As in "I will not fail" or "I will not fall"
I will not fail, 'till the fall wind I inhale.

Fire

FREE WRITING

A fire!
A flash!
A bundle of ash!

We broke apart in a crash.

A puddle of blood;
Stepped on like the mud.
I sink deep in my room's quagmire

Desire, Desire; 
A burning ring of fire,
It chokes my heart in a flash.

The Bar

FREE WRITING

"Auuuuhooo" whistled the wind as it flew past Patrick's Pub on a peaceful August eve.
Patrick O'Mulligan, the bar's owner, was not in today. It was his daughter's birthday.
It was only the bartender, Ciaron O'Cain, and the regulars in today;
And this was okay.
The wind howled outside, but the bar was calm.
The regulars seek refuge behind the pub's secure walls;
From the wind, or whatever may bring them to the pub on any other day.
