Perfection and Change

PROMPT: Personal Essay Competition: Making Change

I, as a person. I also seek perfection in things I  see, like this girl in front of me. Her hair is messy, she has blood on her mouth, eyes are soar. She's a total mess that I can call a trash. She have this life where her family is broken, she's living like an outcast. An imperfect life you can call.

She wanted some changes, perfection! She wants a big circle of friends, a happy family that everyone would...

I fell in love with a blackhole

FREE WRITING

The burn in my mouth is your name;
It’s like pronouncing fireworks,
And preaching gunpowder
 
Cos your lips are a pair of pyromaniacs,
And with a stolen kiss,
They left matches between my teeth and petrol on my tongue
 
My ribcage door is hanging by its hinges;
There is nothing inside but space,
And the skeleton of a fantasy
 
Cos those eyes of yours are hungry lovers,
And with just a glance,
They swallowed everything big from...

"Be warned, I'll fall too deeply. Be prepared for a sappy romantic if you take a step closer towards me. I'll expect roses and kisses and smiles all day - I'll be a nightmare. I'll want to hold your hand in mine because I've always wondered what it would be like. I'll look into your eyes every chance I get. I'd never want to label their colour wrongly again. I'll always ask if you're okay when you're not. I'll always...

Before the yelling and the crying,
I stood before you listening to my heart beating,
and felt my fingertips go numb.
I could feel myself letting my breaths out slow, it almost felt painful.
It was the last moments I had before you let me go,
and the first moments of tasting life on my own.

Welcome to New Comer’s Bay
 
Perhaps you stood on New Comer’s Bay
scratching your leg with your other foot
looking around for something
that isn’t quite really there
eyes glued to the precious screen
you carry around in your pocket
to look anything but confused, alone or even bored
and to look very busy on the screen
you have no business to attend
 
Perhaps you stood on New Comer’s Bay
when the little yellow boat fl-unked you off ...

Why I Write #1

PROMPT: Why I Write

I wish to speak my truth
but my voice shakes
and I stumble over every other word.

I consider the things that matter most
And everything I must express
But the words never make it past my lips.

In the dead of night
I walk through imaginary conversations
and plan speeches I know I'll never give.

But when I pick up a pencil
and mar a blank page with everything inside me
I can finally see myself there.

Clinging on the the life jacket I had bought before I got on the boat, I tore off people trying to grab the strings. I watched others get swept away by the menacing waves, and other slip under the surface, doomed to stay at the bottom of the dark pit of water forever. I would help, but I couldn’t. I didn’t know how to swim. A mother with an infant bobbing up in down in the water cried out a...

 I stare at the world

    And I cry

But I don’t cry
Because I can never cry
But it is not my eyes
That shed tears
It is my heart
For my heart is nothing
But an object of the courts
It is confused
It is torn
It will be whole someday
Or so they like to say
But me and mine
We don’t exist
So I continue to stare
    
    And cry

        And cry

Fadeaway

FREE WRITING

One day I will walk no more.


As movement ceases all meaning
And I stumble and fall
And lie in wait forever.

A hand raised out in vain
I screamed out loud for help
But I looked all around
And there was nothing there at all.

As desperation takes hold
The darkness broke and set in
Raised to the sky, for one last time
I cried aloud - and there was nothing more.

    Asking a writer why they write is like asking a philosopher about the meaning of life. You can't get one answer that is the same from every person, it's one of those questions that will haunt you for the rest of your life. One of those questions that you can spend your whole life searching for the answer, and end up finding yourself, by never really answering the question you had originally. No, you can't ask someone why they write...
