the first time you are told you are beautiful

FREE WRITING

The first time you are told you are beautiful it will not be in well-rehearsed, Shakespearean poetry shouted from beneath your bedroom window. It will not come accompanied by bouquets of roses or tender kisses. At least, the roses will be pictures set as the background of writing that looks beautiful, yes, but you won’t know what it says. And the kisses will not be real they will be kissing face emojis. And the words will not the be poetry...

go to hell.

FREE WRITING

I told you that December was a memory that hadn't happened yet and you said you didn't believe me.
I told you time was not linear and you told me I should stop getting stoned.
You told me you don't like to deal with stoners.
I told you go to hell.

I already have

What a coincidence, so have I.

Kendall Grace

FREE WRITING

    At 12:51 on New Year’s Day, Kendall Grace left the house to do who knows what. That was how Kendall moved. She did what she wanted, when she wanted, how she wanted, and didn’t care what others said about it. No one knew where she was going, and no one would ever know, and that’s just how it was. Kendall Grace did what she wanted, when she wanted, how she wanted. And that was that.
    At 3:13 am on...

Los Angeles

FREE WRITING

I'm sitting in the city of saints
see signs that serve as symbols
of an empire
that radiate desire like the fire
that burns through my blood
and pumps names through my veins
whispers words of an end game
that I'll claim if it's the last thing I do

I'm sitting in the city of angels, angled
just so, so the light can open my mind
to the concrete canopy, the continuity of a car filled cacophony
that sounds like...

you can't play this game with me

FREE WRITING

    You can’t play this game with me
    Your gun is at the bottom of the sea

You gave me your end of the world:
Driving north on the Coast Highway- enemy’s terf
Red brick road
The blood doesn’t bother me
Your gun doesn’t bother me
The corpse doesn’t bother me
After all, you have killed before

You can’t play this game with me
    All of blackness; you can’t see

You gave me your haunting: ...

I am the child of Suburbia

PROMPT: Where I'm From

I am the child of suburbia. I grow in the cracks in your pavement and seep through your front lawns. I am the paint peeling from the fences that imprison your picture perfect homes and the names carved into backyard trees.

I am a child of suburbia. I am the fires that lick at bathroom graffiti. We’re the last people you would expect, yet here we are.
Rich kids
Good life
Yet we’re running off caffine
And desperate highs.

I...

Tires

FREE WRITING

    Lyra’s tires were slashed. Her car sat, unusable, in the garage, each tire sporting a large, aggressive gash. There was no question as to who had done it; the absence of her pyromaniacal girlfriend was all the evidence she needed.
    Ever was petty that way.
    Leaning against the doorway, Lyra sighed, her gaze held on the slashed tires. She would have to cancel her night out with Rachel and Bailey; she needed to find Ever first, before there...

Things I Always Forget To Do

PROMPT: Subtotals

I always forget to go to put my phone downstairs before I go to bed; to do so before midnight; to get 8 hours of sleep; to finish that math homework that I’ve been putting off all week even though it’s only two problems; to actively read my history textbook; to finish washing a pan instead of leaving it in the sink, full of water, and telling people it has to soak; to turn on the toaster when I’m making...
