Daily Prompt: Flavorful

The milkshake was full of so much flavor as the vanilla ice cream was mixed with little Oreo cookies.

The taste against her tongue was so rich and delicious that she just couldn’t get enough of the drink that day and soon went back for another one the next day.

It erased all the pain and stress she had gone through that day and just made her remember all the good times.

But, also not to forget the times of trouble because it made her take risk to try new things and taste the different flavors out there.

So many flavors she has tasted and not a moment was wasted as she got her favorite ice cream at least once a year.

Daily Prompt: Overcome

I say I want to overcome something in life and I know there are steps that are needed to be taken.

But, maybe I’m just not ready to overcome them yet for the big picture of what has to happen is just too scary.

I take one step forward and end up taking two steps forward for the fear is living inside me.

The fear is so strong that the thought of overcoming this one thing just takes a hold of me and holds on so strong it’s like I’m frozen in time and just can’t shake this feeling off of me right now.

I sit

here letting it all sink in and of course my mood keeps changing as my thoughts think about what I have to do today.

So much has to be done and right now I just don’t feel like I have the energy to do it but I can’t back out and not do it.

I have to be so much that sometimes my brain just doesn’t want to be so reliable and for once I just want to be like those people who flake and no one is relaying on them because they know they can’t count on them.

But, I don’t want to be someone no one wants to not give a chance to because they have not kept their word.

I want to stand out and be someone you can count on but at the same time have my limits.

I want to be able to say no and not feel guilty because I just need a break for once.

Daily Prompt: Crescendo

As the crowd waits for the band to come out and the show to start

the many ages of people talking among each other, trying to stay busy and entertained.

As the lights start to dim and the anticipation among the crowd begins to increase to the point where you can’t even think straight.

The music starts off soft until the beat starts to increase making everyone so excited as they wait to hear their favorite song come on.

The show is a hit and everyone is talking among their group of friends about how they are so lucky to be here tonight and witness something so great.

People still singing the songs as they walk and run to catch the last train of the night and get home and completely knock out.

The next day the feeling of such a great night still running through their veins and they start to watch all the videos they made and start to post them to share it with all their friends and family.

You fold me up like a piece of paper

You crumble me up like something that wasn’t good enough.

You mark me up and you tear at every part of who I am

and then you fold me up and make me into a piece of art.

So that others can see my pain and my sorrow and, there is no place I can hide to shield myself from their eyes that judge me.

Realizing it’s not over yet

100 Word Wednesday: Week 33

Image credit: Bikurgurl, 2017

Capturing all the moments spent with my friends these last couple of days  has me thinking about how much I’ve missed from their lives.

Because I was trying so hard to keep my own life together and now that I’m with them I can’t imangine what my life would be like now if I hadn’t reached out a couple of months ago and planned this trip for us to take.

Would we have talked anytime sooner or would I continue to live my life regreting that I had pushed them all away for I just needed a moment to be worthy of them again.

Like the skeleton of this dinosaur there are many bones too discover in my past and many bones to my future.

Each path is rocky some point of the journey and even though I enjoyed so many there are paths I don’t want to  travel down again.

Each step I take now is carefully placed for I don’t want to make the same mistake again and I want to make sure what I have left of this journey is memorable so those that follow after me will have learned a thing or two.
