We’re hidden in the dark, covering our mouths so no one could hear the sounds of our breathing. Footsteps are heard approaching. Someone knocks on the door. “POLICE, OPEN UP.” We burst out in laughter and run up the stairs to the roof of this building. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so alive as…

Quarter to nine

It was a quarter to nine. & she was laying right by my side. She exhaled as loud as ever and held my hand as tightly as she could. She desperately needed me to hold her like no else would. She whispered in my ear and said “look at me.” “Look at me, please.” It…

The darkness gives me hugs that my mother would never dare give me. It holds me tight and succumbs me to it. It tells me I’ll be okay, to embrace and love it with every inch of my soul. It whispers in my ears, and tells me “you’re beautiful, I love you.” It brings temporary…

art

art. what do I consider art? Is it a painting splattered with all sorts of colors, hanged up in a museum? or is it a sculpture seemingly strong and tall like Goliath, staring right back me? what do I consider art? art is the way you evoke both pleasure and sadness inside of me. it…

#2

I get so attached to people as if they’re the very oxygen that I need. One second without someone and I can’t breath. I don’t know why I’ve trained myself to never accept times when I’m alone. But I guess the thought of being by myself sets fear into my bones. Is it so horrible…

what do you say?

what do you say when you want to say it all, but can’t? what do you say when all you can word out is a soft mumble? what do you say when you know “I’m sorry” just isn’t enough? what do you say when you want to say “I don’t love you anymore”, while they…

#1

scratched out words. coffee stained paper. ink blots all over. emotions poured out in each and every letter. heart showing through each line. & the teardrops I’ve left behind. writing through gray colored glasses. trying to piece it all together. my mind’s a jumbled mess, and it’s all because of you. captured up in everything…

In all his years

In all his years, he had never seen anything like this. A woman so cold. A woman so damn bold. She grabbed him by his shirt and said take me to heaven. All while he took that woman to hotel room number seven. She chuckled as he walked alongside her, with no care in her…

The Daily Prompt

A child sleeping on the steps of somewhere unknown. With his head laid on a pillow, hoping that the night won’t be so cold. He’s surrounded by a place where happiness doesn’t seem to reside. But he seems to make it okay as he holds that pillow for dear life. While children around the world…

’12 am’

With disgust, I continue to chug down every drop of alcohol I can take. The wind begins to pick up and the goosebumps on my arms arise. It begins to get cold but the alcohol proceeds to keep me warm. With beer in hand and the thought of you in my head, I begin to…

Victoria

She bounces on the bed with her arms over her head and shouts “Gosh, isn’t this great?!” The coke’s hitting her hard but she doesn’t seem to care when or how hard she’ll fall. She doesn’t even seem to mind that she’s bouncing on a dirty bed in a motel room from Miami. Because all…

The beautiful loner

Bright red lipstick and dark black hair. Manicured nails and the latest wear of Balmain. When it came to her, looks really did kill. She had it all…so it seemed. But her eyes never seemed to shine. She walked down the streets of her city looking for someone to love her, even if it meant…
