Croissant

A croissant
Croissant

“Oh!”

I’ve dropped,

My sweet, buttery croissant,

It’s slow fall, seems to taunt,

My hungry need,

For this croissant,

It hits the floor, “Ah!”, I scream,

It seems to haunt,

My ghost croissant,

Now the five second rule,

Cannot apply to this croissant ghoul,

Yet my  mouth starts to drool,

“No!” I say,

It can’t be eaten,

There’s too big a price to pay,

So I go sit haunted, hungry, and sad,

Maybe next year I can get,

The croissant I love and need so bad!

 

 

Happy 2020! And I hope you enjoyed my ode to my favorite vine!!!

A Sonnet for Books

When you open up a book you open up possibility,

An endless world created for you,

Each sappling book turns into a tree,

Until you find a story that is brand new,

When you open up a book you open up care,

Everyone created to please,

The authors challenge you to dare,

When you’re done you feel at ease,

When you open up a book you open up knowledge,

Whether it’s fantasy or history,

Each antagonist keeps you on edge,

Sometimes the end is left a mystery,

When you open up a book you open up desire,

For a new story, a new world, a new fire

Behind the Paper: Part Eleven

girl holding her finger to her lips as if to shush someone

The day went by smoothly and I felt reassured. Charlotte appeared from behind my cubicle when I working on an article.

“Hello stranger! I haven’t seen you since the day you moved out of the department! Where were you?” Charlotte smiles and then frowns, “I called your home phone but only Darry picked up. He sounds worried because you haven’t been coming home. Is this true?”

I shrugged and looked at my clock in my cubicle, “It’s lunch time. How about let’s go out to eat.”

After I told my best friend Charlotte about everything that happened, I felt relieved to tell someone about it.

“J-Jacob ROD!” Charlotte screams at the top of her lungs. Noticing curious eyes around us, I quickly stepped my foot on hers under the table.

“OWWWWWWWWW!” She yells.

I secretly whispered, “Its suppose to be a secret! Shhhh!” Like she understood me, she hushed and nodded.

“So, that cheating scoundrel thinks he can live his life without Molly!” Charlotte said as she madly stuffed food in her mouth.

“Yeah, but its okay,” I smiled, “at the end, it’s a win-win. He gets to cheat on me and I get to see Jacob’s house.” Giggles came out of Charlotte. She suddenly stops her laughing and looked sad.

“Are you okay though?” Charlotte stops eating and looks at me, “I mean you have been dating him for three years and this happened suddenly.”

I looked at my cup and said, “When life brings you lemons, sell them.”

The Girl Who Could Unite Them All, Part Two

girl in white sweater in front of a purple background

The woman and Vali walked through the pavilion, eventually ending up on a stage with many other twelve-year olds, people Vali’s own age. The woman walked off, scribbling on her clipboard.

“Hi, Vali!” a voice said behind her.

Vali turned around to see one of her schoolmates, Tira. “Hi!”

Tira was dressed in a nice blue tank top matched with a lacy white skirt. “Are you excited for the Awakening?” she squealed.

“Of course!” Vali exclaimed.

“A flame, huh? I could see you as one,” Tira commented.

“And I could see you as an aquatic,” said Vali.

They chatted about their lives and what had been going on since Friday afternoon.

Finally they were shushed by the tapping of a microphone. A tall and beautiful woman, one of the magic ministers, Ylena, was standing in front of all of them. “Greetings, people of Diamond City and Lorian. Today is a very special occasion.”

There was enthusiastic applause from the audience.

Vali beamed, pain shooting through her hands.

“Each one of these children will have their powers Awakened this morning.”

There was more applause.

“Now,” Ylena said, her eyes glinting with pride. “Each of you line up.”

Vali and Tira lined up next to each other, and Vali was pleased to know they were each near the front.

The first person to go was a small boy with large brown eyes. Ylena grabbed his hands and immediately after his hair turned blue. “Samson Hale, aquatic!” Ylena announced.

Next was a red haired, freckled girl. Ylena took her hands and then her hair turned a deeper, darker, cherry color.

“Blair Lize, flame!” Ylena said.

Three other people went after them, and then it was suddenly Tira’s turn. Ylena took Tira’s hands, and then her hair turned blue.

“Tira Preslyn, aquatic!”

Vali politely clapped along with everyone. Her hands burned.

It was now her turn. The moment she’d been waiting for. She stepped up to Ylena.

Ylena took her hands. Her heart pounded.

A second passed, and then gasping erupted from the audience. Vali’s heart pounded. What was wrong?

Ylena stepped back, confusion, terror, and surprise flickering across her face.

“What’s wrong?” Vali asked. “What’s happening?”

“Vali!” Tira shouted from the very end of the line of children. “Your hair is purple.”

Behind the Paper: Part Ten

floor level view of hallway, leading to an open door

Jacob’s house was organized everywhere. It also didn’t take a lot of time to know where everything was. When you walk in, there is a little entryway. The entryway leads to the kitchen and the living room. The living room leads to another hallway, which has a bathroom and three bedrooms.

“Whoa this is not what I expected! I said, shocked.

Jacob looks at me with an confused look,”What did you expect?”

An evil mansion with a dungeon in the basement. But I am not going to tell him that.

“Different. So, which one is my room?” I ask, peeking at the bedrooms.

“You can pick but not the one on the right. That’s my room.” Jacob says as he walks over to the kitchen.

I ended up picking the cute small room. After that, I walked over to where Jacob was.

“Now here are the rules..” Jacob states when he notices me.

“There are rules!?”

“Yup and you better stick to them or I can just kick you out of the house.” Jacob says.

I gulp. Ok, I guess. I can’t get kicked out.

  1. Don’t mention we live together at work. It would ruin his image to the coworkers.
  2. Whoever gets home first has to make dinner
  3. When you’re staying somewhere else instead of here tell him

Free Verse

girl running in the twilight

I saw the girl running
She was so very pretty
But she fell
And fell again
It seemed as though she did not know she was falling
She repeated that same mistake repeatedly
But her hair was still nice
Eyes still bright
I envied how she did not care
For I never fell
But my hair was matted
Eyes have long lost hope
This girl had too much
How could one be so happy
Was the secret to not care at all
I have always cared so that maybe one day I could be like her
But I now see that it was all a waste
And so I fell for the first time in so long
