Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves by Isabel Afonso   The crunch of leaves fills her ears. The chilling winds sweep her off her feet. She tugs at her charcoal gray cardigan, hurries down the cluttered street. Her blue eyes glance at the slow dying trees. The ever changing leaves float to the ground like parachutes. Colors of red,Continue reading “Autumn Leaves”

Pisces

I don’t know how to express it The attraction I feel from the moon The pull she has over me The way her light washes over me Calming me I feel at peace in her presence   I don’t know how to express it The attraction I feel from water The pull she has overContinue reading “Pisces”

Limbo

I have seen to find myself in limbo…again I always seem to trail back to this corner of my mind. A small cave where I’m lost. Stuck. Confused. I sit here and ponder. Who am I? What do I do next? Should I? Should I not? The walls are filled with questions and visions. SoContinue reading “Limbo”

Creative Writing vs Journalism

Over a year ago I had to write a short paper on Journalism v. Creative Writing. I just about died at the thought of writing it.

But the amount of narrative essaysContinue reading “Creative Writing vs Journalism”

Tales of False Glory P.1

We Are Artists.

We think differently. We feel differently. We act differently. We are artists. We strive for the unattainable. We take the road less traveled on. We challenge the impossible. We are artists. We fight harder. We dream harder. We love harder. We are artists. We break easily. We cry easily. We get angry easily. We areContinue reading “We Are Artists.”

A Chanced Encoutner

Today was a long day. Today was a long day. I noticed the only bench in the park was occupied by a blonde beauty. There was a stunning man walking towards me. I saw her. I saw him. I slid down next to her. He slid down next to me. The wooden bench was deeplyContinue reading “A Chanced Encoutner”

Thank You

Beautiful melodies play as your voice calls out to me I begin to memorize the way your eyes light up How your smile warms my heart You cock you head and stare in amazement Beautiful melodies play as your voice calls out to me I reach for your hand but your to far away SoContinue reading “Thank You”

Lost

My head is heavy My eyes are swollen My body aches Everything hurts And yet I feel nothing I’ve become numb to the world The sun breaks through my window and I hide further under my covers I want to hide from the world, from myself I hear voices beckoning me to return The painContinue reading “Lost”
