Stars On A Seabed

Prompts from Makhluk Seni for WELP, a movement to 'weaponise' love in all forms of expression. Prompts were released throughout the month of February for writers to submit any short form of writing.

This was written with another new sample from Blanketfren playing in the background on loop. It is becoming a very interesting exercise because as I write, I heard different accents in the sound that influences either the choice of words or direction the phrase takes. I am so glad that there is inspiration to finished these pieces that have been stagnant for some time.

Prompt 21: Like oceans...
The ocean is a beautiful place, full of wonder and miracle.⠀
Or it could be a terrifying place, full of mysterious creatures. Perhaps it pulls and pushes you, like the waves by the beach.⠀

We think that love can be like the ocean. What do you think? Write to us.⠀

A consistent reminder that nothing stays constant

This was during the time a dear friend of mine physically left me and we had to part ways. Things have become very different now since that departure. I wished things didn't turn out the way it did in the past few month but people change. It isn't just them, I to have changed because of the collective circumstances.

Prompt 17: How many steps for me...
Love takes time, love takes effort, love is a long arduous journey that begins with the first step ⠀ How many steps are you willing to take for the things that you love? ♥️

I have walked far along enough to be able to say goodbye
We stopped, wandered into a tangent
through each others irides
journeyed into each others stories.


Flakes of gold, aged jade and Oceania blue
It carries, weight, anguish and wisdom
With one last hug that spoke …

Gaze

Recently I have been really inspired by space references and wanted to incorporate it more with my pieces.

Prompt 14: Our stars wrote for us... Look up and see the blinking lights sparkle back at you. Watching the night sky feels magical. Sometimes it feels like you're not alone, sometimes it feels like the stars are writing something for you.⠀
Tell us: what did the stars write?⠀ #WELPPACT#PACT2

I have seen the way your eyes look at the tribulations of the Earth
Seeing through the layers of falsified fronts that people put up
The weeping of regrets and sinking of spirits.

How your eyes fight so hard from blinking
Because losing that moment will lose your true connection with them forever
Once passed, the planets won't realign again for aeons.

Their fingers that set so lightly on your…

Letters Of Sealed Walls

Alongside with people I have reclused myself from, I also attempted to come to terms with certain thoughts that were associated with that person. I am no longer the one who bends over backwards and smiles, goes out of my way just because I can and want to, at the expense of waiting to be love someone. It was all overlooked and still didn't earn me a place to be more than just another after-thought.
Prompt 13: Bent over backwards for...
Would you sacrifice yourself for the ones you love? To what extent will you go for them? Think about not just your significant other, but also your family, friends, pets, and your faraway dreams⠀

Dear reader,

Make no mistake with the words written here
They are not meant for spite
Words forged by fear
Crafted to sound right
Spoken to shed …

Spacial Song

Prompts from Makhluk Seni for WELP, a movement to 'weaponise' love in all forms of expression. Prompts were released throughout the month of February for writers to submit any short form of writing.

Recently I had the privilege to listen to some samples by Blanketfren, I completed the piece while listening to that sample on loop. The inspiration came from some recent conversations between us and some close friends of mine and the urge to use more natural elements in my writing. One of my favourite pieces to date. Prompt 10: I hear you in...
The whispers of Love can be heard from many miles away. Sometimes they say something to you, sometimes a reminder,, sometime advice, perhaps sometimes even longing.⠀

Tell us, what do you hear?⠀

#WELPPACT#PACT2


Welcome to this space
where the Sunday market doesn't close
You have room to sit for a pit stop
Cross-legged, one leg up, all stretched out
As long as your hips have settled in its anchor
Tethered by wires of charging phones and
power banks

Missing Puzzle Piece

Prompts from Makhluk Seni for WELP, a movement to 'weaponise' love in all forms of expression. Prompts were released throughout the month of February for writers to submit any short form of writing.

I was struggling the past few days on how much trust and dependency do I put on my friends when it comes to support. Recently I have started losing friends in a sense that they are the ones who do not value me, my time or my presence and I have taken the shift to not prioritise them any more. It is still a burden to have expectations.


Prompt 8
: The weight of trust is...
Is trust heavy for you, do you find yourself difficult to give your trust to someone? Or is the weight of your trust light as a feather, and do you give it to someone easily?⠀

Think back. Measure its weight. Tell us in a short piece.

My default is to always mould to fit
my function and purpose
As if this puzzle piece is a shape-shifter
that becomes the perfect solutions
for every circumstance and situation

Attack Rap

For my third lesson with Kudos, he got me working with flow. I learned how to identify the pattern of the flow, break it down to the syllables and then trying to write my own rap to utilise that flow. After writing, you realise very quickly what works and what doesn't in respects to the flow of your tongue, the types of sound transitions and also what your mouth can and cannot do.
You are looking back / Everything is turning to whack
What you have has now been hijacked / without time for you to react
You are left with a small backpack / Heart beat steady like a boom bap
Seconds later panic attacks / Breathing breaks that is not intact
Acid in your tract / Heart racing mad down a speed trap
Brain and body losing contact / Chaos rising, fading to black.

Art To Joy

I wrote this piece as i was pondering about where I am now in relation to my perspective of myself. Love is a powerful method that can change lives from within.
Prompt 2: Let;s go somewhere

Love is an adventure that will take either us either to edges our our imagination or to the nearest grocery store. Share with us where love has brought you.

I don't recognise this space
The walls are colours of grace
Swinging lanterns back in place
Chandeliers made of lace
What you have done is taken my heart
and left in place a spark
From chambers that were dark
Now filled with works of art.
