PROMPT: The Fib


thoughts
still
control
me every
night when the lights fade
the darkness comes calling and the
monsters find their courage, whispering half-truths that leave
me reeling: my stomach sinking, my head spinning, my hands shaking violently. every night
i am left at the mercy of my mind: untrustworthy notions founded in unshakable veracity; believed in the face of peace.

your eyes find mine and i wonder if we're thinking the same thing: that there's a future for every broken piece;...

Come Outside and Live, My Dear

PROMPT: The Fib

   Breathe,
   Breathe.
   Inhale,
   Exhale to
   The harmony of
   The earth's thrumming heartbeat as
   Its lifeblood flows through the earth, the sky, through you, my dear.
   Do you feel your pale feet growing roots, reaching down through the soil, snapping the concrete line?
   The line of rubber soles and tiled floors, of phone screens and metal and everything impersonal, frozen, dead, the line you've walked all your plastic life?
   Raise your...

Road Unwalked

PROMPT: The Fib

When
the
taken 
road becomes  
the road less travelled
yes, the one that once passed through those
birches enameled, and the clearing where I believe
We decided we were broken like light through a looking glass, I will return to the
Outside. Suspended, intended, the spectre of my
past grips me, in this yellow wood 
through this road unwalked
we become
the 
trees.

Silent Nights

PROMPT: The Fib

 The pearly white snow gently touches my face 
I don’t want this magical feeling to be erased 
My body started shivering 
I was so cold it felt like icy hot was on my arms

The mysterious black road looked beautiful with the snow 
I could see the street lights glow on the snow
The snow shimmered
The night was silent
I didn’t hear anything but birds chirping
I’d make beautiful snow angel
I’d tried to catch snowflakes in my mouth ...

beings of night

PROMPT: The Fib

moon

sunrise
diminish
divinatory
beings of night in their glory
they once gave their light to the world once upon a time
But their power was turned against them by the beings of day banished to the shadows
They called for their mother, she came in her ivory chariot and said to her children "I warned you of the cruelty you would face."
"I can not save you from your own doing but I will watch over you, I...

Windblown

PROMPT: The Fib

Don't

close

your eyes

and block out

the truths I now speak

because you want to stop hearing

all the things I never told you but I wanted to say.

We were both young but we knew what we wanted and chased after it like silly puppies

Because of that all the magic of our discoveries was lost and forgotten, left to the wind like chaff that tosses and turns through the air,

stumbling and falling when the breezes let...

BeFeiya (China) published:

Crowded Stage

PROMPT: The Fib

There
Is
Always
A part of
Me that seeks the stares
The breathtaking gasps from them
Awes and desires, criticisms and condemnations,
But the spotlight brushes past me, leaving a breeze of warmth, tinkling my scar on skin,
The heavy mascara, the curvy shape, the polished diamonds pulling my earlobes, and the trophies on the shelves—there’s still no space on the stage.

numb

PROMPT: The Fib

hate,
is,
tightly,
controlled but so is,
love and i can’t feel anything,
what am i to do when my senses have betrayed me,
i am completely blind i cannot see or feel anything outside of my own head,
my emotions wage war in white noise inside my skull i can’t hear my own thoughts the war won’t cease because no one wins i am perfectly numb.

Quiet

PROMPT: The Fib

cleansed

rinsed

brushed of

spoken word

quiet past measure

silenced beyond recognition

no voice to create sounds lighter than dusk, black as night

voice lost, cowering in a corner, shunned to a box, a closet, unescapable

Squishy! (United States) published:

hear ye, hear me

PROMPT: The Fib

Hear 
Ye
Hear Me
Yes, you too
For just this one time
On this night of a thousand deaths
While he lodges in the simulation of safety
She dwells in a sea of protests and veiled misery above all that he fails to see
He thinks it is chilly outside but she freezes in a cell: two strangers of a separated family, except he dismisses her

Northern Lights

PROMPT: The Fib

As
the wind
blows around me
I shiver with excitement 
the northern lights are there
Do you see the glowing sky
Beautiful colours swirling all around
like a rainbow lighting
up the sky.

Speak

PROMPT: The Fib

“Speak.”
I don’t. 
The command
makes me shrivel up. 
But I won’t back down like before. 
Someday, I’ll hold my secrets in my own hands again.

Lost and Afraid

PROMPT: The Fib

We are far from home 
and away from our comfort zone 
and our gracious world gives us a deafening fright
we are dead and alive walking bind through this dark and ere night not knowing where we are

Blooms, Your Blooms I Should Say

PROMPT: The Fib

You
make
something
bloom in me.
I cannot fathom
how you create something so pure
in a creature so malevolent and polluted.
You are surely a magician, capable of casting the most powerful of spells.
Or maybe a mirage sent from the Heavens to drive me insane, as punishment or penance it does not matter so long as I have you.
You see, I am but a slave to my whims. Addicted to you, eternally hooked. So drive me to...

My Brother

PROMPT: The Fib

You
Are
Intune
With something
I can't understand.
Why are you really good with math
With Fibonacci, variables, and equations?
I cannot comprehend your brain or ever begin to think the same way as you can.

Trust

PROMPT: The Fib

Trust
Me
They Say
Words sure and
Strong and confident
My eyes tell me this confidence
is earned. Yet when they close, darkness is stronger than words
Darkness is the only thing real. I do not have to trust to see it. Yet when I
Open my eyes. I realize darkness can melt. I realize I cannot hold darkness, like I can another's hand, eyes open or closed

le Lapin Blanc (Romania) published:

Silence

PROMPT: The Fib

Come,
Listen
To my song.
Follow its rhythm 
Of silence and unspoken word.
And now let’s sketch a picture using letters and a pen,
And we will make it quiet, so that we’ll truly be able to understand,
Because only the faintest whispers are the ones we can hear and only if we’re silent the depths of the heart appear.

PROMPT: The Fib

i
am
never
quite the same.
for we are always
changing, moving, loving, being.
it is written in our souls by the very stars.
