CREATIVE WRITING VERSE 

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.  …

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…

Things we lost to the fire

It was by chance that he came upon her blog. He wasn’t looking for it but subconsciously there was always the curiosity to know what Kerubo was thinking. They say the eyes are windows to the soul but in this digital age one’s online space gives their eyes a run for their money. It had been two or so years since Luke last spoke to Kebs, his nickname for the girl who was his best friend at the time. It was funny to him how the best of friends could be the…

#DearAbi This Broken Heart of Yours

Dear Abi, I am fighting the urge to start this with an apology because I know you would hate that. As you say, guilt is an unnecessary burden and one should never apologize for moving on. Each person’s path leads them to where they’re suppose to be and sometimes that path leads us away from those who are closest to us. Kahlil Gibran said it best, “If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.” Cause I don’t wanna…

Waiting for Mr. Right

For Betty… As your eyes meet, stars collide and you’re sucked into the black hole that is the future, its depth unknown. His smile breaks your heart into pieces leaving you, hope that he will stay to work out the puzzle ere the mystery becomes your undoing. He reads like an excerpt from your favorite novel speaks the words from your favorite song. Adele’s muse meets the soul of Erykah Badu’s voice. Coffee? Yes. Why not? The conversation like an arsonist’s works of art, in the corners of your mind….

For men who find it difficult to love

For men who find it difficult to love, for love is a beast impossible to tame.   They never tell you love is about giving cause you spend your whole life receiving it from your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, your family, your friends.   Love hits you like nothing you’ve had before. It is more than finding your feet scarier than learning to walk as painful as when you hurt your knee trying to ride your new bike as low as laying your father to rest.  …

Love in the Times of Depression

I wore my heart on my sleeve an open target for cupids arrow, she said it was courageous for me to put myself out there yet didn’t notice that the impact not only made me love her but broke my heart into pieces. The waves that brought me to her shores also dragged me back into the ocean and even though her arms kept me warm in the winter their hold couldn’t keep me from drowning in the tears from my melancholic soul. “I thought I was your star, why…
