Different Terrain

FREE WRITING

I knew I reached different terrain and unknown territory when I suddenly didn’t feel like I was wandering through an unlit tunnel. 

I no longer felt like I was wandering blindly, gravitating towards a crack of light that managed to peer through for only a few seconds.

 Instead I feel as though I’m in a blizzard, walking this ice cold and snow-drowned path hoping to find warmth.

Hoping that I see a campfire in the distance to rest my soul....

Parched

FREE WRITING

My tongue is dry.
Unfelt of love or passion,
Nothing but liars and false pacifiers disguised as ‘truth.’
As I feed and feed, I hope to be granted peace and solace,
For I am made of lust, gluttony, and envy.
As I lay motionless, borderline deceased, as pronounced  by kin.
I am stuck in this motion, scorched, gasping for air.
But I cannot let go of empty truth.
I shall drown in a river of dark rum and warm vodka ...

Daydream (RAW)

FREE WRITING

Momma keeps telling me to stop day dreaming so often,
I can't help it though.
Eyes. Dead.
Mind. Focused on the echo.

A whiff of familiar fresh lavender tickles my nose.
Warm hands hug me from behind, and I feel a heartbeat.

This must be a dream. Must be a figment of my imagination.
For I have burned those old bridges and silenced the quaking that dwells within.

But yet as I try to turn around to truly unveil this...

Little Island

PROMPT: "My Heart is Like"

I know what my heart is like.
The unforgiving tides that have crashed upon me all of my life 
    become more and more burdensome to bear as time passes by.

With each wave I am more fearful than the last that my ash-covered beaches shall be overtaken by a tsunami in the horizon, 
     having no other choice but to gaze as it swallows me whole and washes me off from God's abandoned canvas. 

No longer will I...

Phantom Pain

FREE WRITING

When I wake up from my bed, I reach my arm over in hopes of feeling your soft hair tickle my finger tips.
Used to burying my face in your luscious locks smelling the scent of your coconut conditioner and lavender shampoo.
A sensation so fleeting is the taste of your stained cherry lipstick against my lips.
I wish you didn’t have to go, didn’t have move.
But I try not to worry so much as I’ve promised you that...
