Glorious Flame

FREE WRITING

I am a flame,
Not a fire.
A small, little flame.

Flicker and waver.
The slightest breeze is a threat,
But I will not be put out.

Each day I grow stronger.
A degree hotter.
Determination is gasoline.

Try and blow me out.
I'm shining bigger and brighter.
I am a fire.

The River

FREE WRITING

Oceans, lakes, creeks, and streams
Glorious water
The best is the River
Vicious, then calm
Rocky or sandy
Speeding through the bends of earth
By my feet
Down my cheeks
Shining in the sun
Sparkles in every drop
Gushing rapids
Gentle and slow
All are unique
Oceans, lakes, creeks, and streams
Beautifully designed
The inescapeable River

Inescapable

FREE WRITING

Pushing
Shoving
Scraped a knee
Chasing me
Run and hide
Trapped
Scream and cry
Drip
Drop
It's changed its form
Stroking my cheek
Salty and wet
Falling from my chin
Inhale
Exhale
Slipping through cracks
Underneath the door
All around
I breathe it in
It is in my blood
Forever and always

Unseen

FREE WRITING

Disconnected
From those I love
Hollowness
Eating away
Always looking down
Rarely ever talking
Spaced out
Don't call on me
I do not want attention
Forget my existence
Like everyone else
You are wasting
Time and energy
Trying to see me
What isn't there
No one can tell
What is wrong with me
I have disappeared
From all their minds
I am trying my best
To leave yours too
Let me go
I will not be seen
Fading away
Like...

The Man Preys

FREE WRITING

A classmate went missing
No friends to  mourn
Never will be found
The Man has got them

He lures you in
The most hurt and broken
No one will care if you vanish
The Man has made his mark

He's made his claim
You can not escape
Run, run, cry, and scream
The Man is on his way

Begin losing sleep
Food won't stay down
He wants you weakened
The Man doesn't like a fight

Piercing cold
Chills down your...

Atrocious Dreams

FREE WRITING

They're getting to me
The nightmares
Afraid to close my eyes
Shut off my mind
Terrified of what I'll see
Do not let me rest
I can't take the stress
Day and night
Equally a fright
Sticks and stones
May break my bones
Words will surely hurt me
Sleep is a new pain
My dreams will slowly break me
Night after night
I awake in a panic
Soaked with fear
Drenched in anxiety
Pillow of death
Blanket of depression
Can't...
