CREATIVE WRITING VERSE 

Whispers from my Father

His figure is etched onto my retina, haunting my dreams as I close my eyes in the darkest corners with my fears he rests in peace the jailer to my demons, the warden of my mental prison the lighthouse that guides me to shore.   He whispers like sand devils to a lost desert wanderer a thousand words painting memories on canvas, tears falling down my cheeks as if to quench my thirst from the heat of this Hades I now reside. He has been gone so long I feel…

Will you kiss me?

When the moon hangs over the night sky and stars glitter its visage, will you sit next to me hold my hand as we listen to crickets chipping and try to discern planes from shooting stars.   Will you kiss me when the church bell rings and the priest blesses our union in front of God, friends and family.   Will you grab a hold of my hand as I lead you to the dance floor pull you close into my arms and sway along to thinking out loud.  …

The Silent Voice.

Escape. That’s all I could think about. Escape The voice kept saying. And for once, I felt weak enough to listen. You’ll be doing them a favor anyway It always feels like a burden being true to yourself. Those around selfish for pieces of you to remind them of a connection to something. Lineage. Escape You think about you best friend what will it do to your her? Escape No. It will ruin her. Escape Escape Escape this misery of a life. But It ain’t so bad. It does get lonely…

Promise Me by @judyannetM

Heal. I just wanted you to heal. Be better. Forget. Heal.   I picked up the phone. Knew I should not have But it was Sunday morning The sun was out, The tree outside my window dancing in the wind. And Sundays like this have a way of getting into my head So I gathered myself on the couch The one by the window And called you.   You received my call with a scream So shrill so unexpected I jumped dropped the phone with a quick fuck sat down,…

CREATIVE WRITING PROSE VERSE 

Timshel

And death is at your doorstep And it will steal your innocence But it will not steal your substance A few weeks into our first year in campus, Brian’s body was found hanging lifeless on a tree outside our hostel in the wee hours of the morning. Death had crept in during the night and left us with more questions than we had answers to. It’s a sad tragedy that majority of us stop living long before we die. We try to find fault in the music yet we are the…

Where is the honey? by @judyannetM

I run on coffee. Steaming hot. Black. Bitter. Snacking my way through life One too many cookies here Bountiful servings of fries here Bars of chocolate there more coffee. You sit me down “Honey, you need to eat You know food? The real kind.” I know. I will do better. But what do I really mean I don’t want you telling me about my shitty eating habits. I want you to leave. Instead we sit here in my kitchen You on the white sinking table Me on the floor leaning…

Something in the way

Long hot showers wash away the pain, old memories and countless hours of feet dancing in the rain. You’re lying on the floor, counting the pieces left behind, hoping you didn’t give too much of yourself that there’s nothing left to look at in the mirror. The sun does not smile at you anymore its light harsh on your eyes, your true self now hidden behind the curtains to the windows of your soul. There’s no more magic in the smell of the rain getting to first base with the…
