marbles

FREE WRITING

Three marbles,
all in a line.
Three little marbles,
frozen in time.

They sit on the table,
unmoving and still;
i don't dare touch them,
and break what we've built.

If the table shakes,
and sets the marbles  in motion;
I fear they will not stop,
until they reach the bottom of the ocean.

I cant stop the inevitable;
I hate it, but its true.
I know that eventually,
the marbles will move.

The marbles roll,
across the table;

sailboat

FREE WRITING

I feel like you're growing distant,
like a small toy boat drifting out to sea.

I yell out, 
the water
absorbs,
my voice.

You are too far away to hear me,
and eventually my throat is to sore to make any more noise.

The boat fades to a small dot on the horizon.
Details undistinguishable.


I remember the carefully carved hull,
and the tiny sewn sail.
The paint was chipping on the right side,
and I promised myself I'd get...

roses have thorns

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

My garden is filled with rose bushes;
I go outside to water these roses twice every week,
but my finger always gets pricked by the thorns.

My hands are cut and bloody,
covered in neon band-aids.

I told my mother that I was sick of being hurt,
and she told me to stop planting roses;
"Maybe a different type of flower?" she says.
Daisies,
or tulips,
I think would be better.

I like my roses.
the rich fragrance fills my...

wonder

FREE WRITING

I sometimes wonder what events would take place,
if I disappeared without a trace;
would people even notice I had gone?

Or would they laugh and smile, go about their day;
hug their friends, and play their games;
would people even think that somethings wrong?

I want to move to California;
take my money,
throw my phone out,
block all of my contacts;
and delete my TikTok account.

And I would tell no one.

I would tell no one.

id rather be a bird

FREE WRITING

Id rather be a bird than a fish.

Your feathers seem to glow in the light of the setting sun.
The slight sea breeze ruffles your quills.
You look so peaceful on top of that streetlight.

I hear you laugh as you glide through the clouds in the daytime.
I see you smile as you duck and weave in between constellations at night.

The water here is muddy,
and warm,
like soup.
Every moment I am scared of being consumed. ...

i dont have a title right now

FREE WRITING

I am a fish.
I like the water.
I do not like the air.

You are a bird.
You like the sky.
And you like the air.
But you do not like the water.

And yet,
we talk.
We laugh together though our paths almost never cross.
And no matter how much time passes before I see you again,
when I do, Ill still be your friend.
