Letting my heart bleed on paper.

Message from Writer

Hello! I'm your average run-over-the-mill girl who barely has a pocket of time to read and write. Unlike the majority of students in Singapore, I take theatre as one of my exam subjects, which is both bold and reckless I reckoned, but enjoyable nonetheless. Writing is one of my main forms of expression and I am hoping that by writing more, I will be able to express my feelings and sights with more vibrancy and clarity. Planning to be a actor/singer/poet/writer/Occupational therapist in the future. Any and all feedback on my writing is welcomed! :)

Lost

FREE WRITING

it pains me to admit:
our friendship -
our trust - must
bear witness towards
the stark distance
growing
between us

as we trace
our footsteps
across the sands.
each grainy print
powerless against
the turbulent waves.

yet you watch me
scramble
towards the coast,
digging my hands into
a million glass shards;
shielding the bond
we had
imprinted in sand
from the salty waters
that roar with murder.

did it not matter
the journey we shared?
did it not...

Clowns

FREE WRITING

When Laura was three, her father had the brilliant idea of inviting a clown to her birthday party. Everyone loved him. Everyone except Laura. Any faint recollections of the incident by her family members mostly revolved around a frantic, screaming girl fighting her way out of the arms of her father. At one point, she was ready to jump out of a window. Laura, in her own state of self-preservation, erased most of the horrific afternoon from her memory.

lucid dreaming

FREE WRITING

sometimes, i feel like
i'm floating-
swimming against the current
of my consciousness.
fingers tracing
barely across a thread
of who i am
and where i'm from.

i stand
merely a spectator
of shifting faces
and passing crowds.
to know
but never to touch;
to feel
but never to understand.

i dream
in vivid shapes and colours,
while i travel
across a reality
that blurs.

It Pours

FREE WRITING

Laura waits for the rain.

She knows it's coming. The quiet arrived - that sudden silence that stands before the inevitable, thundery shower. The calm before the storm.

She loves that silence. There was a certain peacefulness to it that she could only find in those brief moments. She would spend many days sitting by the window of her bedroom, her legs tucked under her as she cuddled a stuffed toy against her chest, watching the dark clouds rolled over...

Liquid Thoughts

FREE WRITING

again i watch my thoughts,
my pleas,
run down from the tears that
burn my eyes as my mouth stayed
shut against the agony
brewing in my chest.

why
oh why little heart
won't you give?

had you learned not to love ?
had you build up your walls
to hide away
from being sore
from people who twists the knifes
you oh so tenderly show them;
to find yourself
bleeding once more.

for a heart that lacks love
can't...

A Teacher's Truth

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel

8 words changed my life.

They were from my English teacher in secondary school, back when I was 14 and tinkering about with the confusing language. I couldn't spell. I couldn't form coherent sentences. Writing was a struggle.

She glanced through my foolscap paper that day, eyeing me as I shifted my weight on my seat, my own set of pupils avoiding her gaze. "What do you think about your work?"

Hesitation. "I think it sucks, cher," I replied...

PROMPT: Turned to Stone

"Whenever you're ready," the man said, opening the white door for me to enter. From behind me my father grabbed my shoulders and gave them a light squeeze, his silent version of you'll be fine. Slowly, I inched my way into the room, knowing that inside lie a dead woman.

Another one.

Under the watchful eye of my father, I grabbed her hand, trying to ignore the stickiness of the blood, and closed my eyes. I could feel them...

A Lifetime of You

PROMPT: I Remember

I remember the warmth that spread as I leaned against your board chest. I remember the coolness of your wrinkled palm shivering within my grasp. I remember the taste of rain against my tongue as I sit precariously on your shoulders. I remember the ache in my arms from holding you; screaming; begging you not to fall over. I remember the tickle of your hot breath against my ear, laced with words of adoration. I remember the quiver of your...
