PROMPT: YOU, The Writer

There comes a drone, long and subtle. Like a call to something located in an unreachable place. Then phrases like glimpses of ghosts in a desert storm. They reach out and I place letters in lines categorised by society. Then they run. Words follow themselves endlessly until the storm settles. Then I am met with a much clearer picture of what might become. However, my eyes still sting and the shadows raise questions. This is how I write. This is...

The memory of madness remains,
Scars on the synapses of my soul.
My love, my hope, my youth,
I have far too many moments in my mind.

This was before and cannot be again.
This was before and cannot be then.
This was before and should not be again.

Rubble, now
Around my house, 
Around my soul, 
Around my life.

Rubble, now
Around my love,
Around my hope,
Around my youth.

that day.

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020

I remember that day, 
The one where the leaves faded away, where we fished in ponds by our lake, where we baked my birthday cake.

Do you remember that day,
The one where you decided to stay, where we burnt the sweet batter, where we flew in futile laughter.

You remember that day,
The one where on my bed we laid, where we made our world smile, where you stayed for a while.

I remember that day,
The day when I...

It preys.                                                     I left.           
Forgive me,                                     I forgive you,  
It hunts.                                                     I hid.
Forgive me,                                     I forgive you,
It hoards.                                                  ​I bore.                          
Forgive me,                                     I forgive you,           
It massacres.                                       I suffered.
Forgive me,                                     I forgive you,
It tortures.                                              I...

Underground

                                                I
                                      travel
                                now
                underground

                                                 so
                                         have
                                    my
                            words


                                            like
                                          a
                                      lit
                                 song
                             so 
                    sweet


                                              without
                                           a
                         trailblazing
                    sky

                                            just
                                         a
                                cloth
                             to
                    cover
                up
                                               that
                                      bitter
                               fruit

                 which I will no more eat.

so let's dance?

PROMPT: Semicolon Soirée

so let's dance; under a moonlit sky as the cars pass by; let's dance; with the grace of swan feathers, let's fly; let's tumble underneath a drunken sky; let our rumbling arms melt underneath the highway above; let's listen to the looming trucks and lucid sputters; I say we dance; dance tonight until it becomes a memory; let's experiment with our bodies as they lurch and lunge into oblivion; watch our stances change in the light fall of the filaments;...

Quiet Down 




            Y'all see me?              
                        I have stars in my throat

        Y'all hear me?           
                  I have a tenacious scream

                        Y'all want me?           
             I have a voice too loud

          I will no longer

          be broken up

                be drowned out
        be taken out
                            be asked not to

Human Possibility




Alone

in the unknowable divinity of love

I dance

with feathered sprigs of joy

For now

I am humbled into the earth

But when

I rise up onto the mountain

And scream

know that this terrifying thing, love

Is truly

the only human possibility.
