Forshadowing

  I walked onto my porch. The steps wheezed an obnoxious screech under my boots. I sat down and stopped my mind, shutting down the endless array of upsettedness that befell me. A loud chirp of a squirrel made my shoulders slightly droop.Then, came the call of the cardinal, soft and soothing, melting all the harsh…

Slip of a Moment in Time

Watching the colors dance across the this blank canvas, I can see the transformation taking place. As the sun sinks lower and lower,the clouds morph from cottonball white into shades of neon pink and orange.                I can see them billow out at the ends, as if trying to…

Where I’m Found

[X] Where I’m Found I could feel them. The brittle, cool waves lapping at my feet. They lick at me like a hungry horse, lapping on a sugar cube, eager and tenacious. I don’t mind the slight stinging of the small, sharp shells at my ankles. The stinging halts my mind as I trudge on,…

The Running Game

In the winding wood maze we wander..The circles are lit brightly by the zipping fireflies. You attempt to sneak past, just hoping for a glimmer of a glance, not realizing we see you. Glimpsing as best as you could through the rotting elm You hear more than our fire’s crepitation.. A twig snaps. There’s no…

All Stand Still 

We look towards the towering buildings. The lights continue to dance. Each formation takes a different shape. Some are ballet dancers, pirouetting in and out of slamming shadows shaped like doors. Others are flashing and fluttering on and off so quickly, it’s easy to miss the changing of colors. Snow flakes flutter into our visage….

The Night of the Porch Party 

There’s a yellow house on the hill. This yellow house has a wrap around porch. The wrap around porch hosts many parties.  These parties keep the house company and forge an amiable and welcoming atmosphere for all who join in. The owners keep the yellow house kept and warm, filling her with both great people…

Chasing Tails

Humanity is like a dog chasing his tail. Once we get what we want, we become bored and start the chase all over again. And no one seems to mind, the busy bustling in the process. The incessant loss of time The faces we hold in our minds become more like faded photographs as we…

Stone. Cold. Silence.

The whispering echoes reverberated amongst the wide room   Piano keys softly chimed accompanied by baritone singing   Outside that room the tranquil sounds are muffled with laughter and raucous coughing   Soft swishing sounds and a gust of breeze greet you at the doors and yelling interrupts your calm   Instantly, there’s squirrels chattering,…

Remember When?

    Amid the falling snow a mystery unlocked in her mind.   Sounds of baseballs flying through air and soccer balls too.   Amid the gentle burn of hot chocolate the memories begin to entwine with the sweet taste.   Laughter echoes, footprints that will never cover no matter the volume of snowfall or…

Heart Weighed Like a Stone

Heart Weighed Like a Stone Winter’s wind is seemingly whipping through me. The bright light from the snow’s reflection is too much for my tired eyes. Although the view is magical, the reality is dismal. As ice crystals soar past, I catch a glimpse of isolated light. My train of thought is broken. I’m somewhere…

Negative Reinforcement

Impatient they’ve grown with this existence, blaming the stars and cursing the universe for having them exist at all. They feel plagued, that their creators are puppeteers, pulling their strings and guiding them in all the wrong directions. They resent all they’ve known and ever will come to know, as they feel they can’t mimic…

The Upside to Gravity

  Back flat on the mattress and my heart is pounding. I know it’s not a heart attack simply because this has been a frequent re occurrence and I’m still remaining. I’m here but sometimes barely. My reality is frightful at times because I’m not always in the actual state of so called “reality.” I…

The Night Whispers

Distant thoughts coming to the surface. I’ve finally found that piece of mind that has been avoiding me for so long. It’s been running so far to the back of my oldest memories. It’s gotten a little dusty. It’s a friendly little reminder, a ghost of who I used to be. I used to resent…

Early Morning Inspiration~BrittnyLee aka DawningCreativity

I can’t believe I’ve forgotten this. It’s been so long since I’ve fallen into this hole. It’s been so good that I’ve forgotten what it feels like to be a kid. I’ve forgotten who I used to be. I’ve pushed her aside for so long, running away from who I was and am. I am…

Dare Me??

Dare me??? Tell me I won’t and I will. Lie to me and I’ll restore the truth. Break my heart and I’ll tape it back together and move on. Try wasting my time and I’ll make the time worth while. Laugh at me and I’ll laugh right with you. Say I can’t and I’ll show…
