The Note. (Retort)

Dear love, My heart skipped beats while I read your letter. I thought you moved on effortlessly, hope you find this vignetter. I am in pain like I’m being sliced with swords, so much of it that I fail to express in words. If ever pain could be named by another I would call it…

Greetings from Hell

I remember! Yes, I remember this letter When my tears decided to escape Out of me, I felt that is better My soul took over my shape I heard him laughing at me and Clearly making fun of me, How could I not see, His love for me Becoming hurtful like a gun flee? I…

The Note.

To the only one it might concern, “There’s life after fall and there’s love after failure”     I hope you are keeping fine. I am writing this mail with a lot of things in my mind. Right now, it’s a sudden rush of feelings, being able to write to you after days. I might…

Paper Boats

Turn me in to a new page, Write me a million words, Scribble a thousand times, Until you have the perfect line. Fold me in to scars, Build me onto an origami, Bring me to life again, Until I can’t withstand what’s mine. Roll me of everything, I will hold what’s yours, Enslave me down…

Peacemaker

Rea Nelson turned eighteen that Autumn. No cakes, no parties, no wishes, no presents to cheer her up or celebrate her legality. “Well, this isn’t something offbeat anyways”, she told herself as she got back to finishing a story she had started working on. The sound of a breaking glass stopped her. “Must be him…

Searchlight

The crowd counted her, Lass of provident. Only she knew that she’s a Regina, Of forced regiment.  The luscious, luminous lurex Brought her no jubilation. All she prayed for is that arms, Which embraces her giving liberation. Though, she’s an impeccable carved Slayer, shimmering And her  tone pristine a sonorous  Ringing But still, her heart…

Cracks

I made cracks in a wall with my teeth and kept the spirit of my child in it, and told him I will be back for him. I am still the mother, I fold and unfold myself to bring forth a troublesome boy, and this line that runs over my abdomen is the way home….

Beyond Infinity

“Once you have kids, your heart doesn’t stay intact inside, instead pieces of it roams outside hither thither. “ She thought out loud, staring at the diminishing landscape below as the plane took off. I quit my admiring gaze at the beautiful greenery and turned towards a pair of beautiful eyes, forlorn and lost somewhere…
