Daily Prompt: Snack

A little snack is all I want to tie me over for the day

a day that seemed too long for me.

No minute of second to take a break

but that little snack that could have tied me over

until the next meal.

Would just be great for me if only I could just take

a nice little break and then come back to work and deal

with whatever lied ahead.

I would be able to conquer it all because this snack would be

so energetic  and yummy it would be so good for me.

I used to stare out those windows and day-dream about being anywhere but here and I wished everyday that I’d be one day closer to escaping.

And then one day I saw you outside those same windows and I realized I didn’t want to be anywhere else if it meant I could be with you.

And as I got to know you I realize this place wasn’t meant for us to stay and soon this town was behind me and as we drove away and it became smaller and smaller. I realize I was going to miss that town.

Daily Prompt: Magnet

Like a magnet I was drawn to you

that voice so like no other.

Spoke values with just a  few words out of your mouth

the most important ones were yet to come.

When I first met you, I fought every instinct that I was supposed

to get close to you for I just didn’t need another person in my life.

Especially since everything about you was saying nothing good would come from letting you in.

And in a way you proved me wrong but at the same time things are different now and even though you are not a big part of my life anymore.

I will always be drawn to you and for that I cherish the memories we have and I don’t regret any of it.

These bar wire gates separate us but they are not the reason you seem so far way from me today.

I know you have so much on your mind lately and things just don’t seem to be going your way and so you’re pulling away and the tear is so strong.

That it hurts to feel like were fading apart as everything begins to make us choose sides for you no longer want to care and I’m fighting every day to continue to care and fight for what I feel would be a possible to me and maybe  just me after all .

Daily Prompt: Sunny

It started off sunny that day and I was feeling the good

vibes.

And I knew the day would go great and we would enjoy this time together

but, soon the clouds are moving in and the rain is falling hard and the plans we

had didn’t work out that day.

The once bright and sunny day turned into such a gloomy day with no breaks from this

terrible storm.

So inside we stayed to watch T.V. and play video games until we get bored and find something else to do.

Maybe our adventures out in the sun will come soon enough but for now inside we stay.

I didn’t

mean to let you down and the look on your face

didn’t lift me up but dragged me down even more.

I knew those last words would not solve anything for me or for you and yet

I couldn’t walk away without saying them and even though they did me no good

and all they ended up doing was backing you angry and hurt at the same time .

I should be a shamed and I should really start to think before I open my mouth but, sometimes old habits are hard to break and it’s not like I have not tried.

I have and now I’m just tired of fighting the issues I have for some flaws just don’t go away with time.

I didn’t mean to hurt you and I didn’t mean to change your view on me that day but who I was is not who I am now.

And maybe I’m more harsh than you remember but, sometimes when life throws it all at you there is no going back to what you were before.

This body, this soul is not without scars and memories that are not all great and the struggle is there.

But, day after day I fight to get back to you to them to everyone who matters and to slowly let the rocks that hurt you all and keep you out.

I’ll find a way to get them all to crumble into dust but for now just trust me when I say I still care and that one day I will be back and I will give more than just my words to you and those that I love and care about.

Because, I owe you so much and when this is all said and done things will be as perfect as they can be and  the imperfect moments will be worth it.

I promise you.
