Daily Prompt: Zip

The cold air hits me as I start to step out the front door

and so I quickly zip up my coat.

This morning is perfect for a walk to clear my mind and as

I start out my steps are slow as I am still half asleep.

But, soon I am awoken by the smells of the spring flowers and the noises of nature as everything starts to wake up too.

I start to speed walk and soon I’m running and everything is going by so much faster than before and I dont’ have time to stop and enjoy the view around me.

I just want to get back as quickly as possible because I have so much more to say now than I had to say when I left this morning.

Daily Prompt: Zip


All alone

I watch as the world goes by me

like a ghost in my present.

Everyone walks all around me like I just

faded from their memories and all I want to do is not

to dislike them because I care.

But no matter how many times I scream for them to look

at me they just seem to ignore me.

They look me right in the face and smile and walk away taking a part of me with them.

They don’t respond for me but they reach out when they need something.

But, lately the wanting to reach out is slowly fading from me and as I walked down the street.

I notice how light I seem to be walking now

and  I realized that I’ve faded away almost completely.

The hope that I can come back is so small that it will take a

miracle to save me from disappearing and all I can do now is

stand here and wait.

Daily Prompt: Avid

Her passion for writing gets her through the toughest things in life

the words that flow through her mind.

Take away from all the things in life she can’t simply fix on her own.

The feeling of writing is the one thing she looks forward to after a long day of work.

It’s a place of safety for her, she let’s go of everything that holds her back and the sense of worry about liking or reading her piece isn’t as important as the feeling she gets when each piece is complete.

And a piece of her is out there forever.

Daily Prompt: Avid


I know

I can’t be too sad when I dugged my own grave

With the careless words that I said that day.

Maybe, just for a moment I lost my mind but it doesn’t matter

I shouldn’t have let my emotions get the best of me.

The night was already dark and then there I go saying all

Those things.

It felt like you were walking down a hallway carrying so much and there I was

Just putting one more thing into your arms and there you went to the floor.

And no I didn’t even stop to try to help you pick up the mess I just went on with

My day with no care in the world.

Smiling to all as if I was so happy and I didn’t even seem to care that you never showed up I just was so concerned about myself.

I was selfish and my caring heart was so black from just looking out for myself that I didn’t help as many as I used too.

I had become someone I wasn’t just to survive for things were not the way I wanted them to be but, I shouldn’t have taken it all out on you.

Now I will do all that I can to gain the respect and honor to be a part of your life again.

Daily Prompt: Harmony

We seems to create our own harmony

like two beats that go together in perfect harmony.

I can’t stop wanting to be with you and it’s

like listening to my favorite song.

The Beat and the singer are in perfect harmony that when

you hear the beat you get lose in it and the words just pull you in deeper.

With you it’s like were making everything and everyone around us feel so

peaceful and whole.

The sound of our voices together create the harmony that everyone wants to accomplish in their life.

One day at a time our harmony brings others together or at least find themselves and start not only believing in themselves but others as well.
