White Picket Fence Dreams

FREE WRITING

“Well you know it’s what’s on the inside that counts,” said the old woman.

This is why she never talked about, her looks, her dreams, and her love life. She wasn’t attractive and she knew it. She just hated how other people tried to hide it from her as if it were a secret. It wasn’t a secret, it was written clear as day across her face. Her big bulbous nose, small eyes, and gummy smile made her hard to...

Lookin Pretty

FREE WRITING

Sometimes when I look in the mirror I go back there. Friday night at a friend’s house listening to nostalgic pop music, getting ready for some dance I don’t care for. Different makeup products mixing together creating the vague smell of baby powder mixed with menthol. None of them are ready. They are all working to perfect their look and for one night feel beautiful. I can still feel the excitement in the air, even now. The only problem? I’m...

Dead Dreams Scare Me

FREE WRITING

I’m afraid of running out of time.
Right now they say I’m in my prime.

There are many things I’m supposed to do.
So many goals to get through.

Will I croak before checking everything off my list?
What about all the things I miss?

Those dreams will die with me.
All the ones that can never be.

A Letter to a Friend I've Left Behind

PROMPT: Letter Writing Competition 2020

Hey Cassie,

    It’s been two years since we’ve talked. I know this letter might seem out of place, but please listen. I just want to say I was wrong. I abandoned you when you needed me the most. Looking back, you were just asking for love and support. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to give that to you. I don’t want to come up with excuses. The reality is, I was dumb and self-absorbed. I’m still self-absorbed, but at least...

Rainy Day Haikus

FREE WRITING

Haiku 1:
Let your water rain,
On this cool and cloudy day,
Wash away my sins.

Haiku 2:
Drip, drop, drip, drop, drip.
Your glory is fading now.
The chaos is no more.

Haiku 3:
The sun peeks its head.
Your smell still hangs in the air.
Wish you were still here.
