Topic: Suicide of a friend
Topic given by Cairo770

I will pay my respect by not saying anything more about it
I will pay respect to myself by not digging myself further down into my darkest matter

I will pay my respect by letting everyone
Know that you are written in every word I write

Topic: Circus
Topic given by minnamanne

Natural selection
Trained to jump through hoops
Carry lit torches as entertainment
Inside a circle
Posing as the new square

Manikin  puppetry
A closed miniature of the world
The clowns,
will always outlive the animals
Blind to the suffering
As we stand amazed
By those balancing on a thin line
Between life and death

The maestro commands
We applaud
We pay
And lend our attention
Towards the mimed mimicry
Forgetting how to mimic ourselves
Completely

We are the circus of circumstance

Day 150

Topic: Tears
Topic given by jilliangetting

Shed on a tender cheek
Mark of the vulnerable
His skin absorbs the past hours
Through one small droplet

His passed makers
Reminded him that past the maker
And creator
Lies the past of what made him unique
If he can look  passed that
And passed the guilt he will feel,
Towards the ones that he made,
His days on this earth
Would make his passing
Easier to swallow

But right now
These small tears are hard to handle
They provide fluid
to accompany his last breaths
He have not yet tried to swallow
The word death
Because right now
It will taste of guilt and deceit

Looking into his childrens eyes
He taste the word relief
As the last tear he ever tasted
Revealed itself on his tongue
He smiles to them
As one last goodbye
And they reply
With tears of their own

Day 149
24.07.2014
Topic: writer’s block
Topic given by wordpainter 2012

Writer’s block
Mind state
Driven by all the demons in a writers soul
Self loathe
Self respect
Self esteem
Words not born on paper
Words trapped inside the mind
Merging with the rest of the Hurd
Waiting to be born as words
On paper

Writer’s block is
Not realizing that the words are already there
Nor good or bad
A standstill
Blame

Writer’s block does not exist
You as a writer do
And when you judge yourself
Based on others perceptions
You create a common name
Instead of words

Topic: Stones
Topic given by Michael Kobernus

Morning
Three stones separated by a child’s hand
Thrown
skipping
leaving ripples after one another
never to be seen again
the ripples fade
and cover every trace of their existence

The only memory left is in the child
the smile
pure entertainment
waved goodbye to his precious stones

now the child awaits
reflection
in the mind
and of the tide

will there ever be a similar stone

Day 147
22.07.2014
Topic: Ups and Downs
Topic given by Hege Abelson

Sweaty palms
Hands shivering in rhythm
blood shut eyes
worn with a thousand winters
turned both his soul and presence against him
all that he got is the idea of his own self
and how he can prevent it from turning his back on him too
Numb
a machine, searching for food to his engine
on the way down

a small knock on the door
curtain slides open
revealing a pair of empty eyes
staring right past him
his begging face
his lowered voice
will not get his brother out
from behind that window and out that door
Please, I am cold
The recipient face replies with no answer
curtain closes

A pause

He walks away

quick fix of reality behind a dumpster
Up
Up
Up
at least until next dawn

Topic: Broken
Topic given by Maria Eriksen

Broken flower
Whispered dreams lost with the wind
As she spoke her mind
Against her will
While the answers
Faded on her silent echoes

Ruined
Deflowered
She will never be as pure as this
Ever again

Her strength,
broken in half
Laid down on the grown
Buried next to her virgin fantasy
In a white dress of misconceptions

Now
She is left covered with self hatred
With small droplets of fragility
Dripping from her petals
