• MsWrite commented on the post, earring 7 years, 1 month ago

    I found an earring on the floor,
    or rather it was embedded in my foot
    after running across the carpet to grab
    the phone before the caller on the other end
    decided I wasn’t home.
    Where did the earring come […]

  • MsWrite commented on the post, nourish 7 years, 1 month ago

    I nourish my body every morning
    sitting in front of my computer
    while entering sweepstakes
    and looking at fashions that I’m way too old to wear
    I wonder when I became like this
    dull and predictable
    every […]

  • MsWrite commented on the post, hood 7 years, 1 month ago

    I wonder what Hood Canal looks like today.
    The sun is sort of shining, the breeze is dull –
    will the water be placid or have the winds decided
    to stay there and play with the waves?

    The attendant brushed her hair and picked up a tube of lipstick left behind by another woman. She twisted the cherry red stick and spread it across her lips in a wide mouthed smile.

  • MsWrite commented on the post, blaze 7 years, 1 month ago

    I will blaze through my chores so I can sit and ponder
    my realities of life. Are they real? I suppose not, as I often
    blow things out of proportion and paint with gray colors.

  • MsWrite commented on the post, charms 7 years, 1 month ago

    I am feeling really scattered and I have work to do
    so I thought I’d come here and get this creative spurt that’s dying to break through and spend the day writing poetry rather than making money. Let’s hope that […]

  • MsWrite commented on the post, splash 7 years, 1 month ago

    I just want to splash in warm blue waters
    suck on watermelon, pineapple, and vodka
    under skies vacant of clouds
    and worries left at home.

  • MsWrite commented on the post, capture 7 years, 1 month ago

    This application captures my attention
    even if for a fleeting moment
    I become one with my screen
    watch letters form words
    sometimes slowly
    sometimes lightning fast
    across my screen
    as the purple bar […]

  • MsWrite commented on the post, temper 7 years, 2 months ago

    I have a temper. I have always known that.
    I thought I had it under control most times
    but am aware how it creeps up on me
    seeps red through my cheeks and pulses
    down to my hands, clenched fists.
    I keep it […]

  • MsWrite commented on the post, exquisite 7 years, 2 months ago

    I found an exquisite pen
    spent the whole day writing with it
    in journals
    on napkins
    notebooks, almost any place that I could write
    by the end of day it ran out ink
    and now I can’t find another one like […]

  • MsWrite commented on the post, residue 7 years, 2 months ago

    The residue of you still sits on my skin
    I have not bathed for fear it wash away
    what I have left of you
    the memories will slip down the drain
    follow the sewer pipes and land
    where it belongs
    piled on top

  • MsWrite commented on the post, trunk 7 years, 2 months ago

    I packed the trunk of my car with everything I had left. Having sold off all my possesions, the sum of my life fit neatly in the small space. I hit the road, head west for warm air and salty beaches. I headed

  • MsWrite commented on the post, fixed 7 years, 2 months ago

    I’m sure I should be fixed
    my broken body carries me day to day
    begging for reprieve
    of the pain that starbursts from the center
    without filter or consolation

  • MsWrite commented on the post, professional 7 years, 2 months ago

    I am a professional procrastinator. I use websites and applications, such as this one, to waste time and avoid working on my ever-growing task list. As soon as I can figure out how to get paid to do this, I will be rich!
