untouchable

FREE WRITING

high in the sky see her,
jewel of the sky, a shining constellation.
her face shines with confidence.
her shoulders are strong and adorned with honors.
medals and sashes symbolized her rank and skill.
there is no doubt in her eyes, no fear in her stance.

as i stare at her my heart fills with longing.
i feel the stars calling but gravity holds me.
her image is a memorial,
a reminder of a time when i could still grasp...

FREE WRITING

My graduation ceremony was less than thirty minutes. Following instructions from an email from the school's dean, my mom dropped me off at the auditorium. I checked my name off of a clipboard and walked inside. It was quiet and empty save for two of my classmates, both wearing face masks. One gave me a thumbs-up. A woman from student affairs handed me a plastic bag with my cap and gown. "Hurry up," she said, "you're up next." I quickly...

pent-up aggression

FREE WRITING

i am a gentle forest in the spring.
the air is always warm, the sky is always beautiful,
and the ground is soft with soil and flora.
but beneath the surface is a boiling darkness that is growing harder to contain.
lately, a lot of humans have been trodding on my lands.
they stomp around and bring their metal and pollution,
cutting down my trees to make their houses,
thinking only of asserting themselves.

Romeo, Part I

FREE WRITING

My eyes see your face and arrow springs from my chest. 
Flowers bloom around it, 
Vines intertwine about it, pushing it deeper into my heart 
Every time you smile. 
Your arms lift me into the sky 
Twirl around, scattering the stars 
And you whisper the sweetest nothings  
As I rest in your arms. 
We may be young and foolish 
And the future uncertain 
But I know I would pull down the stars themselves 
And rearrange mine to align with yours.
