Zoom In On A Tiny Grey Speck On A Large Blue Stretch Of Water

FREE WRITING

Nafisa watched her legs, hidden under her ragged blue jeans, as they dangled precariously over the rainy grey of the water. She was still missing her left shoe; a blue sneaker that her father had gotten - along with its twin -  from a white lady wearing a uniform. They were her favourite shoes. That morning, her brand new shoes had seemed like the most important thing in the world as she flung her age-old boots into the corner of...

Time to wedge some regiment into my small town routine,
I've read the script twice over but could you guide me through this scene?
Keep your head straight, raincloud. You're only just sixteen,
Don't worry if you miss this part, we have a time machine.

So douse me in cold water, hang my spirit out to dry,
I've tried and failed a million times but never once asked why,
Look up, your net is open and reveals a bright blue...

An Anxious Dialogue With My Brain

FREE WRITING

Big Red Bags for tired eyes, puffed out like they’re
Too cold to keep themselves working, and a
Similar mane of hair to match. Is it you looking
At that person? Is it you? It can’t be you.
You’re showing yourself up by saying it
To their face like that, you know. You’re
Acting like a petulant child. Try to say that
The words you write are just a simple exercise
In character exploration and deny that it’s ever
Based...

Campfire Music

FREE WRITING

I’m sat in this close-knit campfire,
This circle that never ends,
I’m sat in this close-knit campfire,
With all my campfire friends,

When one falls into the embers,
They’re quick to be replaced,
And we all love the new members,
And the burnt ones? They’re disgraced.

But I love this close-knit campfire,
This sweet and sticky s’more,
I love this close-knit campfire,
And wouldn’t ask for more.

A FRESH START A FRESH START A FRESH

FREE WRITING

Look at them and their fresh start,
The boasting of their change of heart.
See every other in the world,
Rekindle what was once unfurled.
And watch as I, tentatively,
Deny all signs if jealousy,
So jam that button, insomniac,
To block out cries of “send me back.”

April Showers

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

A brief ice shower to start the month
It's a fleeting glance at panic,
Just one short meltdown and then back
To Busy and Smiling and Manic.

And hail is whispering close now,
I’ve forgotten my umbrella,
Duck under candy plastic sheets
To postpone a minute dilemma.

Ensure I stay out of the way,
Stick to my neon galaxy,
I’ve already nailed pathetic,
Won’t someone please fetch me fallacy?

Therapy

FREE WRITING

"And count,
two, three, four.
Breathe out,
two three, four."

"Take this diary,
twice a day,
write down the things
you need to say."

"And why do you think that?"
"Yes, that's true."
"It's not the world.
It's all just You."

Give me the paper
that says I can go.
Let's lie to each other,
pretend we don't know
Your Breathing Exercises Don't Help When I'm On The Way Home And The News Tells Me That People Are Dying.
