The Melancholy Sea

FREE WRITING


Swim in the melancholy sea of shame
Stinging your eyes with salty regret
Swallow the rolling waves of guilt
Spot the water mirror,
Your artificial self that reflects.

Listen to the crying souls 
Amongst the loudest of them all,
which is you the loudest weeper
The one, first to fall.

Understand your painful past
Release your anger and hurt
Don't try to make yourself feel better
By dragging others into the dirt.

Exhale the weight that you have bared

Swim in the melancholy sea of shame
Stinging your eyes with salty regret
Swallow the rolling waves of guilt
See the ugliness you reflect

Listen to the crying souls 
amongst the loudest of them all
Which is you the loudest weeper
The one, first to fall.

Understand your painful past
Release your anger and hurt
Don't try to make yourself feel better
By dragging others into the dirt.

For you are very strong ...

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021



Thick, sticky honey
Trickles down my body,
Insects humm
Underneath my flaring flesh,
A Fiberglass sweater,
Soggy and hefty.
An urge to be weightless,
To be hollow and empty.

A compressed spring
Waiting to explode,
A bucket of stress
Close to overflow,
An emotional sponge
Soaking up bleach,
A life-sucking leach
Of stigma and critique.

A dream to fly,
To float through life,
To dodge the bullets 
of personal strife,
Paralyzed,
Desensitized,
In control,
And organised.

Blank,

I kissed him

FREE WRITING

A Withering rose drapes on death bed
Cold and insipid
It's petals of rust were once cherry red.
Awaiting for the subtle snap of it's cane
To be picked by a love.
Or slaughtered by pain.
