too good to be true?

FREE WRITING

love is a seductive poison
but a poison we still drink
and you don't know you're falling...
until you begin to sink

love is such a sweet ploy
of which we all want a part 
the lines become bittersweet...
do you feel that hole in your heart?

love is a game of chance
and we tend to believe in fate
even if we get lucky...
we're sometimes just too late

Grow

FREE WRITING

the fire hisses as it travels
devouring bush, undergrowth, and towering tree
it leaves behind winking sparks and desolate landscapes
all seems dim, dark
and then-
the smallest sprout
green leaves pushing through papery ash
with a pop!
it begins to grow

“You know, you’re onto something,” A cheeky voice interrupts the brunette’s reverie as she shuffles through her locker. “With this.” Samantha’s locker door is pulled away from her face as observant eyes meet her confused gaze. Sam looks down at the object in their other hand. Her cheeks redden. She recognizes that paper- because it was clearly ripped from her notebook. 
“You didn’t-you didn’t read it, did you?” Samantha snatchs the paper away as fast as she can, shoving it...

blueberry

FREE WRITING

the flavor pops in my mouth/ tangy/ then sweet/ melancholy as it dissolves/ 
how to describe it's comfortable feeling/
tastes like home/ after the longest trip/
like a kiss/ good night/
you know the song/ that one you listen to on repeat?/
that's blue/ in a beat/
play it again/
just another taste/
dancing in the rain/ I think/
of you

how to save a life

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2020

    We spend our lives in a monotony. A bubble of 'do this at this time', and 'do that at that time'. We create routines and follow them. Maybe we appreciate life, maybe we try to, maybe we don't. But no matter how in tune with the spontaneity of life and society we believe we are-  I don't think we can ever truly comprehend how breakable this bubble is. All it takes is one moment for something to change, one second...

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2020

He walks down the hall, lost in the monotony of school as it should be. Comfortable, mostly predictable, simple. Everyone living. How could he have known he’d lose a friend by day’s end? That that hug would be the last? She just needed a box of tissues and a new brush. But the result of an unfounded hatred will be the reason she never goes home. They were just playing, two three-year-old peas in a pod. They didn’t know what...
