To tell my truth

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write to tell my truth, 
the tiny voice whose inconquerable murmur 
swirls within the ice-cold waves of my brain
and the firey abysses of my heart.

I write to scream in pain, 
With my one assurance, my one plea, my one word
the last leaf that falls each autumn
and the first rose of spring's cherry blossoms

I write to laugh and leap and sing and dance, 
to let the golden sunbeams of the glittering sunset sprinkle me with ...

with his white and black feathers
perceiving the world through a rainbow-tinted g l a s s
with his pink skirt and technicolor eyes
unhearing the e u p h o r i c ephemera of yesterday's sorrow
multicolored bandaids decorating his unscarred canvas
he skates figure-eights in patrol of the c l o u d e d heavens
and he falls.

Skyfall

PROMPT: Semicolon Soirée

Raindrops patter on the sun-scarred pavement;
The grey squares drink the wine of the world's falling tears;
Blood, glaciers, rivers, and tears are dropped from the heavens' clouded embrace.

Kissing the ground as they fall from grace;
Little shards of liquid pain seal the world's changing fate;
The earth is green from denying its dizziness and bulimic news;
It spins faster and faster to save its phantom face.

The sky's stomach rumbles with fury;
It aches for retribution and resolution and...

Threes of Me

PROMPT: Dust Jacket

Three communities to which you belong (these can be unusual).   
  1. A choir group called Madrigals, where we wear medieval costumes and sing Christmas songs in the dark, in a semi-circle, with candles. Oh, and also yell about how there are no bananas in the sky. Haha...definitely not a cult:)
  2. A Ben Cook, Sky Flaherty, Ryan Steele, and Ben Cook fan-club/group-chat where we all rant and fangirl over Newsies, Mean Girls, and Dear Evan Hansen actors.
  3. The Church of Jesus Christ...

A small white canvas sits alone 
Still to be painted, still to be sold 
Ethereal tones, unshaped by man 
Pure until the next day began 
 
When small fingerprints traced her corners 
Painting with purples her once white face 
Thumbprints pressed themselves into the canvas 
Creating impressions of beauty and grace 
 
A thick black brush dipped in blues 
Stroked her remaining space 
covering up her original feathers 
and leaving stars in their place 
 
The painting is happily put...

Arnekum (unmake)

FREE WRITING

After the sun fell on my sufferings with no solace 
after God’s hand wavered, and disappeared from my sight 
after refusing to climb into gentle morning’s hopeful embrace 
after drowning in hurricanes of paralyzing shame and relentless guilt 
after closing my eyes to the possibility of tomorrow 
after permanently silencing myself 
 
after golden hands clasped mine own of soaked memory, blood, ink, and tears 
after the obsidian horizon split into innumerable, heavenly paintstrokes of gold, red, purple, and blue,  
after stepping...
