Fire-red blood stains milk-white skin

PROMPT: Home’s Essence

the spirit of rolled Rs and burning green tea
surrounded by infinite ever-ageing yellow pages
it made up whole philosophies in only two days
one ephemeral thought

we sat on the wooden floor debating the world we could've had
private polyglot jokes with forsaken origins
mere excuses to mix all the languages we never spoke
and die of laughter until our stomachs ached

the never faltering loud chatter and spontaneous out-of-pitch singing
contrasted with unknown birds by day and political protests...

it hurts to grow up


Tap, read, breathe
you look, but... can you see?
spinning, turning, screaming
why are you crying? it's over, you made it

the door banged shut
widened eyes searching
Desperate foolish girl

the world blurs and the pencil trembles
you have climbed the highest of mountains
the staff of Pride, the embodyment of Victory
weigh you down, crush you under
now you understand
oh, the heart of stone in demand
to be on such a pedestal

white pages empty
