Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

A Masked Ball

FREE WRITING

She’s staring at me. I can feel her eyes glued in the back of my head. And yet, if I move, I let myself be open. No, I must hide, hide in this mess of tuxedoes and ball gowns and mindless chatter that I wish could mask me forever. And then I see the warnings. A hand clasped on my shoulder, a hand clasped on hers’. Two identical faces of shock. One idiot blathering introductions. I lock eyes with her...

Song of the Rising Sun

FREE WRITING

Hark your loveliness 
Hark your loneliness
Heart of the rising sun
Curse my mellowness
You’re ever so effervesce
I cannot compare
Rise above the rest
Lovely in all address
You’re my rising sun 
You’re my rising sun

Move fountains with your rhythm 
Drive my heart to its discontent
Leave me here to rot and dry
Come up every morning 
Leave me every night 
And still your heart is mine

Kiss me goodnight 
Let is burn my lips
Wave you goodbye ...

Creativity Lost

FREE WRITING

    Today is the day. I line up with the rest of my class, all of us in stained white uniforms yellowing with age, but with the sign of our elated government, sewn proudly on our pockets. Some of my classmates slouch, but I stand ramrod straight in my two sizes too small shoes. I know it’s probably too late to make a difference, but they’re always watching, and I don’t want this to affect my chances. “A good impression...

The Flower Garden

FREE WRITING

Flowers, flowers everywhere. 
Watch them fall from here to there
Pretty as silent little lies. 
How I loved them. 
I watched them die. 
Petals are falling, white and elegant, little pieces of truncated ash. 
Their softness grazes me
I let it embrace me. 
Peachy smooth skin and velvety
Lovely in every regard. 
They fall apart so quickly in the storm. 
Cursed is the one who touches them. 
Cursed is the one who leaves. 
I watch them tremble, see them roar.  ...

Daedalus’s Dungeon

FREE WRITING

I create monstrosities
People cower when they see me
I sacrificed a life to save my own
But I am not a monster
They think that I escaped it, flying free on wings of my own invention 
But I am still trapped
The Labyrinth follows me
I see it in my dreams
I keep going around and around in circles, but no one will let me leave
Because I deserve to be condemned to madness
All because of my “gift” ...
