Are You Going

A-Z Writing Challenge #10
Are you going…

all is white leading to the white magical castle

ARE YOU GOING

Are you going away;
the past goes with you

B, the first letter of his name;
bitter endings

Car crashes kept happening;
take them all away

D, the first letter of his name;
death, too, it happens frequently

Every time alone;
in the dark or out of safe places

Forgetting their faces;
forgetting to forget them

G, the first letter of his name;
getting beyond it never over it

Having to hide from them;
hidden closed up inside

Inside was a good girl;
outside was used

J, the first letter of her name;
getting what is not deserved

Killing was a fantasy;
wanting to make it real – not

Life was lived outside the edge;
climbing trees, lifting off the ground

Memories were illusions;
illusions happen

Near death experiences;
walking on the air

Open caskets;
kissing lips of death and cold faces

Playing dangerous games;
ending in broken, dead bodies

Quitting life;
escaping what? – the future

Reality’s not a choice;
it’s an unwanted state of mind

S, the first letter of his name;
stamp out reality, give another possibility

Trading dreams for wishes;
finding neither works

Understand: with years of therapy,
original design is gone

Violence survives it all;
courage kills you

W, is the first letter of his name;
wanting innocence to return

X-rays showed broken bones;
pain the body hates

Young, don’t know what they’re doing;
older, want their bodies back

Zig-zagging all the ghosts abounding;
I hit a tree, the end of me

A – Z Writing Challenge #9
“Ahead of us…”

#9 spectacular nature landscape mountain hd

Ahead of us

Ahead of us stands the future we hope to find
Behind us remains the past we go beyond
Carrying memories of years we may never forget
Doubting our wishes to move forward
Evaporating our hesitation as we remember the past
Forever we leave the abusers in their own darkness
Gone is their ability to hurt us ever again
Haunting though their figures might be
Inside us we remember they are just ghosts now
Joyfully we enter into a new existence
Keeping positive thoughts toward our new world
Love fills us with promise we won’t deny
Momentary flashes of times past appear in nightmares
Never, we promise to return to the destroyers of our dreams
Open wounds still closing, but the healing has begun
Passing the open windows, though tempting, will save us
Quietly we protect our paths to freedom, keeping secret our direction
Resolved to change, we have escaped, hoping no one follows
Silently we meditate on the world we enter and the one we exit
Today is always going to be the first day of our journey; we continue on
United in our purpose, we will find joy and happiness
Violence was never deserved, so we leave it in the past, never to find us again
Wanting badly to feel free from torture, from the fear inside us
Xanadu is our hope, our future welcoming us home
Yonder is the path leading us to safety, but we must pursue it carefully
Zazen will give us the sight we need; we will find our peace of mind
