Message from Writer

Hello, my fellow writers! This is Ruby here. I am a passionate fiction writer who loves to write poetry, fantasy, flash fiction, autobiographies, songs, screenplays, and novels. I've also written many works connecting to my experience as a post-epileptic teenager and collaborated to compose musicals with several drama programs. I'd love to hear some of your feedback and can't wait to read your work!

Once On Fire

FREE WRITING

It’s hard to let go
Of old memories
The sweet ones below
Put our minds at ease
But ashes remain
We let them aspire
They’re hard to reign
They were once on fire
 
Flames don't appear
They spread and evolve
They're quick and they're queer
A trick you can't solve
But they will not cease
To your heart's desire 
There is no peace
When flames are on fire

Some ashes stick
Some ashes burn
Others fly quick
Most will...

Yesterday

FREE WRITING

I remember it like yesterday
The way you folded your warm arms around me
I remember the surge of warmth
That flooded throughout my body

But yesterday was yesterday
All I can do now is remember
How I gave you my heart back then
And you crumbled it into chill black embers

Tempest / It's Coming

FREE WRITING

It’s coming
I’m standing there and I know it’s coming

Walking alone
Commotion around
Clouds and bubbles
Thoughts and troubles
Tasks undone

Heat wakes fast
Heart starts to pound
Panic spreading
Nightmares dreading
It’s begun

It binds my wrists and shields my eyes
It drains me with questions of whos and whys
I’m trapped in a tempest that I cannot break
All I can do now is wait
Just wait

Open my eyes
Take a deep breath
Gain surroundings
Stable...

The Sound of Light

PROMPT: 25 Words

Although that one night alone felt like a thousand years, the sound of light was still ringing in my ears.

When Fantasy Is Fraud

FREE WRITING

I speak of the city
as bustling crowds
swarms of citizens
crowding the streets and blinding my sight
smoke fills the sky
I seek tranquility
commotion engulfs me
I slip through narrow streets
to make it home before dark

With choices come danger
chances are narrow
when fantasy is fraud
opportunities are not open for all

but underneath the crumbling gravel
is old magic that once thrived

Tempest

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2021

Walking alone
Commotion around
Clouds and bubbles
Thoughts and troubles
Tasks undone

Heat wakes fast
Heart starts to pound
Panic spreading
Nightmares dreading
It’s begun

It binds my wrists and shields my eyes
It drains me with questions of whos and whys
I’m trapped in a tempest that I cannot break
All I can do now is wait
Just wait

Open my eyes
Take a deep breath
Gain surroundings
Stable groundings
Pray it gone

I am so ashamed
My narrative...

The Boy West

FREE WRITING

    During her third attempt, Kym nearly got crushed by a wave. She was standing by the shore, eyes shut tight in concentration. It wasn’t until she felt the spray of fresh saltwater on her cheek that her eyes flew open, and she noticed the fifteen-foot-wave approaching the shore. She scurried back, sand and water flying in her face as the wave smashed to the shore with a thundering crash. 
    Kym growled and brushed the sea foam off her...
