FREE WRITING


Today’s been a pretty average Thursday
Just classes and homework
A typical lunch of pasta alfredo and garlic bread
Math was normal, only systems of equations and matrices
Interesting discussions took place in history 
But overall, nothing was out of the ordinary

Except for the moment I discovered my favorite poet
Technically they don’t have any published work
But their words are heartfelt lines of poised poetry
Their text messages are bold and confident, yet gentle and beautiful
Their voice...

today

the sky is brighter, the colors prettier, the forest herself, prettier, and so are the flowers. The sun is shining, I could bask in it forever. It looks like a beautiful mix of early dawn and noon. I love it, the sun is beaming off of some cars in the driveway of our school, and I know that I don't have to worry about my test results today because today is different. Actually, it's...

i wonder if it's just my imagination.
if it was only that single day.
just because i was talking about what we have in common.
that's probably it.
after all, why would he choose me?
and it's not like i like him.
no, i like someone else.
but still.
it felt nice to be choosen.
but it was all a mistake.

call me arrogant but, when i started writing these poems,
i wanted to hurt you.
and when i started writing these poems
i decided i am more than allowed
to bestow upon you
all of the pain
you have given me.

and here on the edge of seventeen,
your dull eyes still stare back at me.
red rims, my own tingle with a phantom sting.
if only we were reflected in the water,
i could simply swipe you away.

AN OBJECT OF CURSE

PROMPT: Nature and Environmental Poetry Competition 2021

In the year 2017, I was baptized as a poet with my head buried in the sky, blessed in the name of the ink, the name of the muse & in the name of the blank sheet. 
ever since then, the wind calls out to my name in silence, kissing its echoes to my shadow. the pigeons' coo is a synonym for brightness, to remind the sun to dawn in orange colors.
rainfall became my favorite song, I would chorus...
