Because of this facade

FREE WRITING

Because of this facade


No-one really knows.
Underneath this plaster smile, 
and underneath the armor that holds up my broken bones,
no-one really knows. 

They might know some of it. 
Or none at all.

They might think that they know it.
But they don’t.

It’s lonely,
underneath this facade.
I’m the only one 
who actually knows what is going on.

They all think that they know,
that they understand who I am,

But they don’t.

They don’t know
the feeling...

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Wow. This is amazing. You have so many ideas in this piece that it could be a ton of different poems, but you combined them, making them all one, which I love. You make the reader understand how everything is...

I really love this poem. Keep writing! Check over some of your grammar (just like apostrophes and spacing) and then I’d say that this is pure gold. You’re amazing!

The words come

The words come


Shaking
My hands are shaking.
They bounce up and down.

Shaking
My breath is shaking.
As I try to pull it in.

I stare
out into the audience.
So many people.

Whay are there so many people?

I focus on my breathing. 

The piano starts.
Wait! I think.
No-one hears me.

What are the words?
What are the words?
What are the words?

What are the words?

I take a big gulp of air
and start singing.

Quiet

FREE WRITING

Quiet

I close my eyes
and pull the blankets closer around me,
put my hands underneath me.

The noise in my brain
does not stop.

The washing in my ears,
The random song stuck in my head,
The Spanish words for an upcoming quiz,

All dance in frond of my tired eyes.

I let out my breath
and pull it in again,
let it out.

I try to force quiet.
Quiet.

The quiet does not come,
the sounds continue,
the images...

Plaster

FREE WRITING

Plaster

People.
People.
People.

Everywhere. 

I stand uptight
Pretending
That I’m meant to be here

Even if I don’t believe it

People.

A smile is plastered
To my face
Less and less of a 
Smile 
Over time

People.

Talking fills the room,
Laughter makes the air warm

Too warm.
It burns my lungs
As I try to breathe 

I stand alone
Wring my hands

Why is no-one talking to me?

I fix my plaster smile. 
Take a boiling breath of...

On Friday

FREE WRITING

On Friday

Screaming from all sides
From above
From below
From my right
And from my left

“Don’t forget the test is on Friday,” 
They all seem to say.
“Your project is due Friday!”
They say as the bell rings.
“Our show is on Friday night, you guys!”
They say to us.

It’s all too much.

I just need
the ability
to hit the 
pause button.

To take a breath
To get some sleep
To regenerate brain cells
To just...

But cut off

FREE WRITING

But cut off

Trying to speak
But cut off
By someone else’s
Problems

Trying to tell
Someone what’s on my mind
But cut off
By complaining

“It’s not that bad,” 
They seem to say to my problems

“Not as bad as mine,”
They seem to push me farther down

Your test was hard?”
They seem to fight me

Trying to get it out there
Trying to be heard,
Not just seen
But cut off

Trying to get out

Trapped

FREE WRITING

Trapped

Squirming 
In my seat

Thoughts
Swirling and pounding
Trying to escape

Screams
Trapped in my head
Only I can hear them
Louder than loud

Twisting 
In my stomach
As I try to reach
for air
But come up empty handed

Words
Caught on the filter
Of my brain
Trying to break free
Then snared by a hand 
trying to flee

Pulling
Like a magnet
Bringing them back in
With only a negative charge
Never end

Punches
In my gut ...
