Molly Says Yes

PROMPT: Writing for Children Competition 2020

Molly loves the Earth. The bright blue oceans, the green grass, and the beautiful sky. One day, Molly wakes up with a question on her mind. She asks her mother as she gets ready for school, "Momma, how can I keep the Earth happy?" 

"Hmmm," her mother thinks. "Can you turn the sink off while you brush your teeth? We don't want to waste water!" her mother says.

"Yes!" says Molly. She turns the water off and finishes getting ready.

he aimed his damned arrow:
poisoned at the tip,
decorated in curses,
and shot with force.
there's an unethical joy he finds
in the torture of his victims,
creating ill-fated romances
and all the brokenhearted.
so when he hit me,
i knew i was screwed,
that there was no way
a relationship would last
between me and you.

misery has come to hide away
just as love frames your face like ringlets
through the stolen glances in low light.

i didn't write this poem for you
you, with your eyes that tell a million stories
and your smile that makes the darkest sky explode into a thousand tendrils of light
oh, darling
you're my universe

but this is not for you.

The shadows drop a little bit of themselves into my cup, laughing. I see them pulsating through the tree branches and vaporising at certain kinks but their pattern never reaches my intelligence, so I bow my head. At this, they laugh again and are quiet most immediately after.

“You are too respectful towards them.”

I raise my head but only to look into my cup where their penumbrae swirl without diffusing into the water. Then, I wait. 

Nothing speaks again...

Hello again.

I have been thinking about my activity on this site since my last post about leaving. A month of holidays has given me the time and environment to think and write. I thought that I wasn't able to express things that I wanted to here but I realised that I was wrong. This place has been my home for writing for so long and I am sure I won't be able to find another place more comforting and...

I finish the corpse. She is alive and beautiful because I dressed her. I dressed her in a washed yellow; the shade of what used to be an artificial sun but is now a rich palmful of sand. It is what my mother would have called a good colour; one that knows its place and grows healthily from the soil, well-balanced and modest; but perhaps this confuses you. I remember that your language does not permit an understanding that my...

I Promised You

I kissed you goodbye that day 
Leaving you with only the memory of me 
And a promise 
That I'll be back 
I sent you letters, souvenirs, pictures 
To fill up the empty promise that I made to you
A promise of a lifetime 
With you and me
How could I do this to you? 
Five years filled with broken promises
I told you I'd return
I told you I was going to marry you
But I'm still here,

Jemma couldn't figure out if she were awake or still unconscious. If she was awake, she must be in a dark room because everything was black. Shuffling blindly around her new surroundings, she found herself in a cage- a iron, metal rod cage. What was she, an animal? 
Am I in heaven? 
Jemma always thought that heaven would be a paradise, something beyond words. A paradise with Fitz... because she didn't want to be anywhere without him. She felt hollow...

PROMPT: Love After Love

Over the hill
by a silent creek
on a silent night.

Embers are gleaming
like the wings of a Phoenix
sitting by my chimney.

A home away from home
made by bricks and fire
all straight out of my imagination

"I have finally found my home,"
the man said,
"I will stay here until the silence begins to scream."
