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”

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”

MAYday: The Month of Hell

The past few weeks have been extraneous. May has been a hell month for me. I find it quite funny calling it a hell month seeing how in high school May was always known has hell month since it was a month filled with AP testing. It’s been a stressful month with starting university, workingContinue reading “MAYday: The Month of Hell”

Tales of False Glory P.1

A tide is coming It calls to me Rushing waters I did not forsee   Voices chant an earthly call Winds are strong Ground is breaking I don’t belong   Fire below boils high The air is scorched Spilling to the sky I did not hide   Was not my choice But theirs alone TheContinue reading “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.

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”

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”

Dark

Darkness entices you with its tongue It’s words whisper demonic words It tries to cloud your mind It covers you in its dark cloud You try to push it away You try to fight back Scream, cry, kick But it keeps coming back It wants more You know you shouldn’t feel this way This lonelinessContinue reading “Dark”

Her Second Home

She enters cautiously. Her eyes wide in a deer-like wonder. Her hands are clammy. Her heart is racing. She tries to ignore the hundreds of eyes staring at her, possibly judging. She feels the weight of the mic in her hand. The music starts out softly. She let’s it soothe her nerves. She opens herContinue reading “Her Second Home”
