Code Scarlet

A pile of books and assignments in the corner of my room yell mockingly at me as I sit typing out this post. The three hours of sleep I have gotten within the past two days is knocking vehemently at my energy levels. My camera gathers dust at the bottom of my bed and my pen dries up as time continues to tick.

I have refused to do this for the past month or so but it's time to declare a code scarlet: The Mayden is going on a break.

Wild Trees and Barbed Fences

I stand among wild trees and barbed fences. This is a wilderness for which schisms have been built, for which concrete meets soil and heartbeats kiss silence, for which crimson signs that cage bind leashes around necks.

I stand among wild trees and barbed fences, and my god, I can feel the electricity jostling my veins. "Incarceration, begone!" I say, for lock and keys and shadowy trees do not scare me anymore.

I stand among wild trees and barbed fences and I see war ground.

Monthly Merits: March

Monthly Merits is a monthly series where I recount and award the month's worthiest moments in merits.

March was like lights on a twilit evening, buzzing and beautiful, bright and burning. March was a good month, March was a bad month, March was an okay month. 

I find myself amidst the tangled web of limbo as April rises before me. A painful desire to run into the arms of Spring showers and flowers encapsulates my heart and yet, as I look back, I see March as a canvas for colours to smear on black, splatters to heal all that is nothing. Much like February, March was bad and beautiful, the distant bokeh of memories better left alone.
