Journal 6: I Remember

I remember how you used to like jawbreakers. I remember how we used to go to McDonald’s and order fries and sweet tea as an after school snack. I remember your eyes and how they sparkled every time they met mine. I remember the way you smiled, the way you laughed. I remember so clearly […] Continue reading »

Everything is fucked up as usual. Talk, talk. Dour faces radiate gloom, They can see their reflection in the red solo cup. Wearing loneliness like a bandana, They perfect naked dances under strobe light. Shattered expectations mingle with poor grades, Minds over schooled and under used. A generation of cheap liquor and missed due dates. […] Continue reading »

Prompt 1: Rhymed Couplets: The diner is where we hang out, hear what the town talks about. Not food your mother could bake; french fries, burgers, and a shake.

Daddy

I want to know why I was never enough for you. Why you were the man who was supposed to show me that I deserved the world, but you showed me that I needed to grovel for love. I need you to realize the damage you caused, to my heart, to my mind. Now when […] Continue reading »

The Still Frame House I remember an adventure began with a full tank of gas, your mother’s old Subaru and miles of country back roads that I knew a little and you not at all.

Journal 6- Anaphora

I remember the worst pain was scraping my knee on the sidewalk. I remember my heart feeling like it was in one piece, and I remember when you used to carry me on your shoulders. I remember thinking you would live forever. I remember everything you seem to be forgetting, but   I want my […] Continue reading »

Do you feel that?

Do You Feel That? Matthew Sanders Do you feel that? the fear. the anxiety. the stress. Do you feel that? the mystery. the confusion. the speculation. Do you feel that? the wind. the thin air. the cold dark sky. Do you feel that? the calmness. the bliss. the embrace of the sunrise. Do you feel […] Continue reading »

Prompt # 3 We used to drive till we found a new hiding spot along the York river. We used your fuzzy blanket you kept in the back of your car. We used to pack picnic lunches of precious Chick-fil-a, laughing wildly. We used to curl up and wish upon stars and whisper lovely thoughts […] Continue reading »
