(I recommend anything beyond 'Tumbling Ash' for the rest is a mess of nonsense words that hold no character, no story and absently fill the page)

67. Emotionless Earth

 

Today

the

world

holds

no

emotions.

 

The sky did not cry.

A humid heat,

the type that feels as if it sticks to your clothes and wrings its hands around your neck

settled in classrooms and on leaves.

 

The day smelt of vanilla and the night

smells of mint.

 

Music is no longer a remedy.

Well, not tonight anyway.

 

The moon is a ball of silver laughs

and shadowy tears.

 

My hair falls like frizzy waterfalls and my ears ring

with basketball bounces and deep laughter

not coming from me.

 

Boredom numbs my brain.

 

The light of streetlamps remind me of the middle of

traffic lights.

 

And sleep reminds me of Neverland.
