anyway

FREE WRITING


i remember how you made me feel like
even if it all fell apart     i'd be your always anyway
wishful thinking only gets you so far
feeling loved         knowing it wouldn't last too long
but at fourteen
tomorrow is dazzling and floats in dreamy potential
i can't recall
the day you stopped speaking to me
i never learnt                to be caught off guard
my bare shoulders       felt...

Bao and Boba Tea

PROMPT: The Food We Miss

I long for the sweet creamy taste of the milky tea cold in my mouth.
Sucking up small orbs that pop in your mouth or stick to your teeth.
I long for the think straw and and the tall cup.

I long for the savory, seasoned taste of the pork bao.
Gently letting my teeth tear through the soft fragile dough.
I long for the satisfaction of holding a giant warm dumpling.

bury me in flowers

FREE WRITING

bury me in flowers

lay a crown of crystal carnations atop my head
curl honey-colored flowers around my skin
braid delicate, purple buds into my hair
let fresh, green roots anchor me to the ground

make me into a bouquet
cover me in heather, adorn me with aster
wait for the butterflies and hummingbirds
to flock to my side and sip the sweet nectar
hidden in the budding blossoms

dusty, pink primrose sprouts from my skin
color my lips with...

REQUESTING READERS PLEASE

FREE WRITING

Hey guys! So I am working on a series called Kingdom on a loud rn, and I was kind of wondering if some people would be willing to read the first 3 chapters and tell me what you think? My end goal is to publish it eventually, and I could use some feedback on the storyline and stuff. So, I'll link the chapters in the footnotes, and here is a bit of a summary of the story:

Us, Our World

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

Prompt: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

A billion people out there,
a single land to live.
A zillion different thoughts
and different voices we give.
But most of the time,
are they even heard?
They're just flicked away,
never considered.
Just stays grey.
Injustice and cruelty,
selfishness and greed
make agony and poverty,
no one's truly freed.
It's dismaying how humanity- what makes humans human, has almost left the chat.
But we can change that.
Because this world will...

anxiety disorder

anxiety disorder
we did a mental health unit in health class, learned all about it.
i can name the symptoms by heart as if they were the names of my friends.
the teacher said it was an illness, said that it wasn't something
you would never want to have, and i imagined it looming in the air,
a dark red cloud of smoke. i imagined a man walking right through it, his eyes
fogging over, his heart speeding up, his...

“It is with deep remorse that I announce the death of Prince Telian,” the king declared somberly from the castle balcony, which overlooked the village. “Although he was only eleven years old, he was a promising lad and his presence will be greatly missed.”
The townspeople murmured among themselves, but the king wasn’t done speaking. “I can assure you that the death was accidental. The young prince was out on a hunting trip two days ago and had an unfortunate...

Diddly-Squat

Diddly-squat,
I thought was not,
A word,
But Google proved,
Me wrong,
So now I write this poem,
Cause it's fun to say,
Diddly-squat.
