Q&A #PUREHEART

FREE WRITING

Hey writers of the world!

I've seen a lot of people do these question and answers things, and thought I'd give it a try. 

So, whether you sincerely want to get to know me, or are just bored and want to contribute to someones happiness, questions are much appreciated. You can ask as much questions as possible, I really don't mind. Go crazy! 

And don't be shy. You don't have to ask questions about my writing; it can be about...

sigh with the bones
of this earth, child.
(it aches shakes breaks)

plunge your hands into
the sopping stars,
& sing to the cities
that scarred you.
(that was eons ago)

do you hear their
screaming, dearest?
(i hear nothing else)

then return, sweet,
fingers sticky-stuck
with forgiveness,
& watch them unfold.
(i shall i shall i shall)

FREE WRITING

hi, i'm taking part in the peer review-a-thon, and if you would like a review on a piece, please leave a link in the comments. i write pretty detailed reviews, and spend a considerable amount of time on each one of them, so i won't be reviewing all of the linked pieces, just the ones i really like, but i'll try to leave a comment on each one of them.

The Punishing

PROMPT: Open Prompt

They knew what they were doing was wrong. They had grown up in their pristine, gleaming city knowing this. Here, the people were safe from all peril, inside the city or out of it.

Of course, there really was no danger inside the city; it was a safe haven for all those who lived within. The real menace was outside, but the people inside were protected from that.

Or so they were supposed to think.

They wereprotected from it;...

sea song

PROMPT: Plastic Ekphrastic  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

the water lines are showing
as i pull back the waves, blankets
of heavy green and grey.
a clear incision; the splitting
of bodies; eviscera and sin
spools out. trash heaps
and tragedy; in the guts i must
swim. swim, and the storms
draining, draining, crash
into mountains of memory. the plastic
entangles me. i can hear the whales.
they are singing; they are drowning;
in the shiver of the wind.

A world without social media

PROMPT: Unplugged: Op-Ed Competition

If we lived in a world without social-media there would be a lot less judgement and a lot more quality family time with families because the parents and kids would not be on their phones socializing with people who they will possibly never meet.
Teens often try to get as many followers as possible and as many likes as they can. most teens post at least once a day and later on in life wish they didn't post so many...

I'm not afraid of you

FREE WRITING

I started turning. Hair grew all over my body. My hands grew longer nails, or should I say my paws did. My eyes started glowing a colour close to amber. My breathing started getting shorter and faster. It wasn’t as painless as everyone thought, changing. I fell to all fours, unable to stand on my hind legs any longer. I dug my claws into the dirt, clenching my long snout at the pain, all my sharp teeth piercing the sides...

    Dear Bullies,
    Why are you the way you are? There isn’t one day that I don’t walk from class to class and see somebody walking through the crowds, usually cowering against the wall, with a look on their face like they feel worthless. There isn’t one day that I don’t overhear somebody like you poking fun at another’s appearance or choice of activities. You poke at other people because they differ from what you enjoy and what you...

Bled for the Beauty

FREE WRITING

I bled as I wrote,
drops of sweat clung to my brow.
Within the dim candlelight,
my heart pounded mercilessly
as my fingers ached and scribbled.

The ink was bold and dark,
across the paper, words were strung.
A signal idea,
more added to the melody the words formed.
The plot drove on,
dark and sad.

To laugh on paper,
to form tears,
the author, so cruel.
Starborne skies,
and boundless possibilities.
Characters of dreams
fleshed within the ink blood of...

the leader's burden to bear

the weight of their belief is 
staggering, menacing
terrifying
it's a heavy burden to bear, like
the weight of the world on weary shoulders

a leader endures much and has the authority,
responsibility of sending out soldiers,
giving orders
knowing that any wrong decision you make
could cost the many lives at stake

they tell you that you
don't need to bear it alone
the leader can rely on others
he has people to support him
who are willing to...

Figures

FREE WRITING

I sit down in class and realize I've forgotten to bring a pen. There's one lying on the desk, so I pick it up and doodle a quick stick figure to see if it has any ink. It does. But the figure I just drew looks up at me and then jumps off the page. 

Figures. With one quick swipe, I grab the wriggling figure and stick him in my pocket. Hmph. Time for geometry.

Wren moved. The man’s grip loosened. With one sharp tug her arm escaped the guard, who was in a deep sleep, lying against the bars of Wren’s cell.
Wren had been captured. Only a few hours before she had been wandering about the woods, looking here and there not really going anywhere, until a gang of soldiers on black horses had come and taken her away. Wren remembered the guard’s words before he’d fallen asleep by accident; “Don’t you go...

The Good, Not the Bad Or the Dirty By Amber Redmond.

All ages now use social media, many adults hate that their kids, even the students in class that have a cell phone and can access Facebook and Snapchat during class when phones are allowed. But really what they hate is how much we rely on it and they joke “You wouldn’t last a day without your phone.” People would be surprised, teenagers aren’t always causing trouble with their cellphones....

PROMPT: Dictionary Title  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

    Rain patters softly on the roof, filling the quiet living room with a peaceful thrum. She enters, clad in cozy pajamas, a book, a laptop, and a mug of steaming coffee in her arms. The couch molds around her as she curls up, taking a inspiring sip of black coffee. Then she sets her armload onto the cushions and, after a lengthy deliberation, chooses the book. She settles back and opens it, smiling at the satisfying crack of...

Pink

Sweetest,
I am sure I dream in colour
and, tonight, I dream in pink.
I dream light and fluffy and giggly and girly.
Dreaming of marshmallow hugs and butterfly kisses,
of primrose lips and the flush of your cheeks
As we run through field upon flower field.
We’re holding hands because no one’s there to see.
We’re two idiots who know better than to dream
of the future. I’m dreaming
pink like little-girls' dollhouses,
like daisies and fairy-wings,

    “Sinclair, you’re acting like an aristocrat! This is a partnership- we’re equals!” I quickly finished up in the bathroom, dried off as best I could, opened the door and strode to the dining room table down the hall. I stood in the doorway, bedraggled and awaiting a stern conversation about communication. I simply asked, “Website?” Hen looked up at me, eyes blazing. Instead of yelling, she walked out and came back with a dish towel in hand. “Dry your hair,...
