Daily Prompt: Trace

To  discover the beauty of great art work

one wants to trace the brush strokes.

And admire the colors that were used to

create something so beautiful and unique.

So many things one wants to discover but not enough time

to get it all done but to discover something new each day.

Whether it be on online or in person my eyes are always on the lookout

for something great to admire and make  note of it as being one of my favorite pieces

of artwork.

Daily Prompt: Trace



are slowly getting back to normal

as my days seem to get longer and I

busy myself with things to avoid the truth.

Even though I want to say everything all at once

it’s like everything I have to say is just coming up blank

and even though I know I need to get this off my chest.

Daytime turns into night and soon I’ve missed my chance to tell you as

I become busy and then you become busy.

Until so much time has gone by that I just don’t feel like it

matters anymore to share this information with you.

But, so how when all is quite again those words are coming to the front

of my mind begging me to tell you the truth now or forever hold it in and

hope it doesn’t come back to bite me in the butt.

Daily Prompt: Detonate

I was holding it all in because I knew if I let you

get to me you would trigger the anger in me.

And it going off on you would be a horrible word bomb detonated by

your ignorance.

So, I nicely smile at you and walk away knowing I didn’t just save myself from going there but you from receiving what you deserved.

I felt good about forgetting about the ugly that came out of your mouth and soon the thought of you was gone as I moved on with my task of the day.

Daily Prompt: Detonate


You’ve given

me hope

and everything is so raw

like the tears falling down your face.

You open up for the first time in such a long time

and you start to live again.

With nothing left to say and so much to do

I stand by your side to help you get through it all.

For tomorrow no more tears will fall and nothing but smiles and laughter will be heard

and seen.

You will walk with so much confident and hope that this

year will end just fine for you.

Your heart which was once broken will be fixed and be so much

bigger than before.

You will begin to trust people again but it will take time to open up again

for no one will use what they know about you against you again.
