Daily Prompt: Lollipop

Life sometimes can be like a lollipop

for it could be so hard and working through your problems.

may take a long time to solve and you have to go through so many trials or layers.

Just to get to the center of your problem or problems.

And, sometimes the outcome isn’t so sweet and it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

And so you don’t try that favor or solution again  when it comes down to dealing with the problems of your life.

Like a lollipop like can have some sweet and cherish moments.

But, sometimes things start out sour and end on such a sweet note or moment.

I could

never just hide behind my words when it came to you

it’s like you knew the truth before I tried to cover up the things going on with me inside.

You never seem to let me doubt myself for too long

you always wanted me to believe that I was better than I felt I was.

That one day I would become the man you hoped and believed I would be

and even though things were changing you were still around.

But, now your going through so much and I don’t know where to start

to help you get through it all.

But, I won’t give up on you even though you are pushing and pulling me in so many directions.

I know that you care and I know that I care for you and in the end this friendship will just grow stronger.

There is no ending for us right now and I needed you to know that as you fall farther away from me.

Daily Prompt: Moxie

He was determined that this time he would prove you wrong

that there wouldn’t be any place left for you to run.

He knew that life sometimes can be too much for you and that

you felt so alone.

But, he was here standing in front of you, proving you wrong for he was always

around and just needed you to tell him what was wrong.

And he would listen and help anyway he could, for it was hard for him to shake you when you pulled away.

He didn’t think it would hurt this much but it did and he would do anything to not feel that pain again.

Time

was on her side as she counted down the moment she would be free

she had to contain her excitement as she quickly walked out the door.

No schedule to follow just doing the things that she loved for the next

two days with no worry insight and no hurry at all either.

She was free and she had so much time on her hand that she was just so excited and

determine to do as much as she could in the time that she had.

For sooner than later she would be walking a straight line with barely anything ways to break out of the cage she will be in.

So she must be focused now if she was going to accomplish the impossible so  soon.

She had nothing holding her back and she wouldn’t let anything get in her way as her clock started counting down at midnight.

Daily Prompt: Bumble

You move around me in awkward pattern like a child trying to walk for the first time.

I try to ignore you because it’s just annoying as I try to get around you.

after five minutes of getting no where, I just laugh and push you down.

And laugh even harder when you just can’t seem to get up right.

its like seeing a turtle trying to turn over and get back up.

I realize it’s all just your way of trying to cheer me up and for that I’m grateful.

And so I find myself smiling and helping you up and off the floor.

Maybe I

want to say more to you but the words just won’t come

and so I find anything to just distract me until I fall asleep.

And talking to you is forgotten and I wake up with so many

things to do that I just don’t play attention to the things that I can’t find the words to express.

I don’t know when it happened but it did and I know that no matter how much

time will go by that there is no going back and things will never be the same and that’s

something I have to live with and maybe one day you will read this but for now it’s what it is.

Where this will end is unclear but, I know that I am not the women I used to be and you have to accept that now because later will be too late anyways for me.

Daily Prompt: Caper

She needed to dance so bad for the stress

and disappointment was eating her alive.

No amount of time was healing these wounds

that seemed to close and just rip open over and over again.

As she put on the music and just let herself move to the beat as

she let go of everything that was crowding her mind and driving her insane.

The headache that was  building up in her head was making it hard for her to focus on what was going on around her.

That smile she pasted on her face was becoming harder to hold as the level of her patience was slowly falling away.

But, then time was on her side and she got to get away and just let loose for a while, so she closed her eyes and danced to everything song until she was too tired to move.

And the smile on her face before she called it a night was a genuine one that she only showed everything now and then.
