the oxymoron

FREE WRITING

You leave my heart warm and full of cold, 
And ribs crushed to bits on the floor,
Deny it just once and I’ll repeat it tenfold:
I’m sorry that I was the bore.
A string of words doesn’t mean that much,
To the fool claustrophobiac,
You lied ‘til you slipped through my iron clutch,
And now I can’t take it all back.
Days tainted by your yellow slippy glow
Watch my fists clench ‘til they’re red
But I’ll say I’m...

stuttered note

FREE WRITING

I don't think I'd stomach it if you left
me, staring at sunset, lost, bereft,
Your dark silhouettes, steadfastly,
withstand storms and wind and rain and me.
And whilst you're here, I'll let you know,
that I'll not leave until you go.

Sensory Processing Disorder

FREE WRITING

Can you feel it? The chill wind of the Things We Would Not Say
Bouncing off the sun’s purple in the lake and through your
PATHETIC armour into your sacred, malicious bones.

Can you hear it? The silent scream that splits open my ears
Whenever I try to write about you and ignore their
PATHETIC words and look to your wistful, frenzied eyes.

Can you see it? The treehouse. The mirror image of a
home that made us seem like...

Zoom In On A Tiny Grey Speck On A Large Blue Stretch Of Water

FREE WRITING

Nafisa watched her legs, hidden under her ragged blue jeans, as they dangled precariously over the rainy grey of the water. She was still missing her left shoe; a blue sneaker that her father had gotten - along with its twin -  from a white lady wearing a uniform. They were her favourite shoes. That morning, her brand new shoes had seemed like the most important thing in the world as she flung her age-old boots into the corner of...

Time to wedge some regiment into my small town routine,
I've read the script twice over but could you guide me through this scene?
Keep your head straight, raincloud. You're only just sixteen,
Don't worry if you miss this part, we have a time machine.

So douse me in cold water, hang my spirit out to dry,
I've tried and failed a million times but never once asked why,
Look up, your net is open and reveals a bright blue...

An Anxious Dialogue With My Brain

FREE WRITING

Big Red Bags for tired eyes, puffed out like they’re
Too cold to keep themselves working, and a
Similar mane of hair to match. Is it you looking
At that person? Is it you? It can’t be you.
You’re showing yourself up by saying it
To their face like that, you know. You’re
Acting like a petulant child. Try to say that
The words you write are just a simple exercise
In character exploration and deny that it’s ever
Based...

Campfire Music

FREE WRITING

I’m sat in this close-knit campfire,
This circle that never ends,
I’m sat in this close-knit campfire,
With all my campfire friends,

When one falls into the embers,
They’re quick to be replaced,
And we all love the new members,
And the burnt ones? They’re disgraced.

But I love this close-knit campfire,
This sweet and sticky s’more,
I love this close-knit campfire,
And wouldn’t ask for more.

A FRESH START A FRESH START A FRESH

FREE WRITING

Look at them and their fresh start,
The boasting of their change of heart.
See every other in the world,
Rekindle what was once unfurled.
And watch as I, tentatively,
Deny all signs if jealousy,
So jam that button, insomniac,
To block out cries of “send me back.”
