A Crack in the Roof

FREE WRITING

We see the world we yearn to see,
With eyes that grow and glimmer,
We dream a lie to send us to sleep,
and smile as our ceilings grow dimmer.
We shatter hearts just to watch a smile
Eclipse the blue-pooled sky of a face,
We jostle an elbow to pull up a chair,
And won't admit that we feel out of place.

On Climate Change & Anxiety

FREE WRITING

Heavy. A press on your shivering spine,
A tug on the string of your head, a friend
Telling you to watch and plod and pretend
That you’re strong, a warrior, perfect design
Who knows just when to lay her heart on the line.
They’re fierce and strong and they oft condescend
When you bring up your measly world’s end.
Forget it. Forget it. You’re doing just fine.
Heavy. The weight pulls you down to the granite,
Think and fall as...

MISSING: 171,476 WORDS

FREE WRITING

THE WORDS HAVE GONE. WE CHUCKED ALL THEM OUT.
HELD THEM UNDER 'TIL THEY DROWNED.
THE WORDS HAVE GONE. GONE WITHOUT A DOUBT.
NOW WE CAN'T WRITE OUR WORDS, PROFOUND.

THE WORDS HAVE GONE. THEY LEFT IN THE NIGHT.
LEAVING US HERE, ALL ALONE.
THE WORDS HAVE GONE. THERE'S NOTHING TO WRITE.
NOW THERE'S NOTHING LEFT THAT I'VE KNOWN.

THE WORDS HAVE GONE. I'M GOING INSANE.
TRAPPED HERE INSIDE OF MY MIND
THE WORDS HAVE GONE. JUST ME AND MY...

Waterlogged Sneaker

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

The sea isn’t blue. It is a rainy grey like my left shoe. I was missing my right shoe, but I was afraid to tell anyone in case I opened my mouth and a scream escaped.
A scream like Junayd’s.
Remembering was drowning. His soft grimace as he touched the hole in his stomach. I passed a drop of saltwater to the miserable ocean. We should never have tried to escape. A stale breath was pushed out as someone saw...

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...
