Five Minute Free Writes 10/24/15- Silence for the Still Small Voice

I’m reposting two of my articles for this topic….silence

collage-6

In this technicolour but sometimes Stygian world, I feel inept of handling things. The confusion and betrayal make me frustrated and lonely. The silence of the moon geminates some sour events into words. However much it grates on my nerves, something in the back of my mind tells me to leave it as it is. I make the whirling world stand still. Sometimes I feel like a torsional puppet being manipulated. Very rare that I resort to drinking razorwine. Without you, my world is empty. Ah, the grim realities of life.

There’s a barely controlled abandon, and more than a hint of anxiety that once the act of inscription has begun, it can’t be undone. The scars were there, along with the stench of betrayal. In the silence of the sea, I could pretend to fly, to get away from this demanding world. My scarlet heart bleeds, with lament in verse. But as I looked around me on this golden hour, with the clear sky, the refreshing breeze, birds flying in the air, I knew there’s still hope. I should put my shoes on and start treading again. I should play the game of life and have fun again. Nothing could hold me back.

Fly Me to the Moon and Back – Five Minute Free Writes 10/14/15-“I’ll Fly Away”

Fly me to the moon and back
I can always give you the feedback
This autumn day is like a dream
Trees glisten thanks to the moonbeam
Journeying isn’t the same as a trance
There’s a chance that I can dance
The fountain shimmering like diamonds
For some, time speeds up, senses heightened
The paper lamps all bright and cheerful
They can’t help but continue to babble
The girls and boys all having a giggle
And after that the conversation lulled
Having fun on this gorgeous night
Yellow lights which were all bright
Seeing the city in its full glory
Everyone feels so carefree
Feeling the chills in our bones
But there are no need for moans
Didn’t want this charming night to end
When sharing it with a great friend
