Awkward silence reigns,
Words stumble, lost in the air,
Eyes beg for rescue.
Mistakes are not shackles that halt one from stepping forward. Rather, they are that which sustain and grow one's heart.
How does it work?
Aww. You painted awkwardness and sympathy toward the speaker all in one. Loved your wording
I've felt this before. It was so awkward!
Comment section dosent look awkward....... hopefully
More stories from Kageno Hoshino and writers in Poets and other communities.
In a crowded room,
Silence stifles the chatter,
My joke falls so flat.

Snow shimmers in -24 degrees. Trees that usually wear their forest green coats are dusted by frost, looming tall and piercing the pastel coloured sky like sentinels for a citadel of silence. Finland is made of frozen moments, standing so still in between breaths of icy air. It’s serene. It’s like a dream. It’s the most enchanting thing I’ve ever seen.

Loud cries break through night
A new mom hears her baby
A fox leaves, hungry

Hot, hot, Florida summer. The air is so thick you are basically swimming in it. The river is only a half mile away at most, the gulf a few miles further, but it's not the kind of water you jump into to cool down. It's a different kind altogether.
