Little Women: Blending Love and Grief

PROMPT: Film/TV Series Review Competition 2021

     There are many kinds of love, and Little Women (2019)  is an honest, beautiful portrayal of all of them, and the results of love. Love of family, of friends, of romance, of a place, of a passion; they are all intertwined in this emotional adaptation of the 1880 novel of the same name, directed by Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird). 
    The story follows fiery writer Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) as she grows up in Massachusetts alongside her three sisters Meg...

I pity the forgetful little ant

FREE WRITING

I'm egocentric as the solar system
So sometimes I forget
To be calm 
About my own irrelevance

Sometimes I forget
I'm not quite as important to people
As vice-versa

So sometimes I forget
That I'm fine with that

That I'm just an ant
Walking and weaving my way
Through these sturdy, decorated pillars
Befriending them and their ghost and their wildfires

Don't forget how small you are
little ant
Smaller than the dust that you can't step over

red-eyed truth sits in the corner and sobs, and asks you to keep your eyes closed

FREE WRITING


knowledge splits across my mind like a knife in butter, a blade in flesh
my eyelids peeled back and discarded to reveal a bulging cornea,  
a dilated pupil unable to shy away from the cruelty of truth.
burning tears that gather at the corners of exposed sclera flushing with veins,
in a stinging symphony of discovery with eyelashes ripped off, one by one,
nothing left to protect the delicate mind from the refuse of honesty.
my tears run with blood...

opposites

FREE WRITING

sunshine can't chase away a rainy day.
not when the rainy day ruins everything.
and not every cloud has a silver lining.
it's more of a muted gray anyways.
and i will cry because it's over.
i can't smile because of it happening.
and sometimes making lemonade goes wrong.
you just end up with sour lemon juice.
life doesn't always have a happy ending.
that's just how the it is.

Singula

PROMPT: August Grab Bag

Write about a new star. What do you name it and why? (nervousbibliophile)

A flash of light illuminates the sky. A new star, small and pure white, has appeared in the heavens. It may seem insignificant, compared to the billions of other stars in the universe. But each star exists separately, its own shape and size, with its own imperfections. This new star is called Singula. Singula means "individual" in Latin. This represents that this new star deserves...

Sorry

FREE WRITING

I have said sorry so many times it has lost meaning
But I have nothing else to say
I'll stare at your name in my phone until my eyes glaze
If I go blind
Maybe you'll forgive me - maybe I'll forgive me - why do I make this about me -
I have said sorry so many times the word sorry sounds like an insult
But I have nothing else to say
I messed up again and forgot you were...

I wished too hard

FREE WRITING

I wish I had a reason

I wish the world would melt
Into a sharp HD Television
With colours, contrast, disregarding realism

I wish time would freeze so I could hold my breath
Without having to gasp
I wish I could hold on to things
Without having to grasp

Like a tightly wound hedgehog
Holding its spines like a palm
Bleeding over rags of glass

I wish the grass was bluer
And the stars stretched 
Like the lines on the...
