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.

Daily Prompt: Disastrous

Everything seemed so relaxed and everyone was having a good time

and then you walked in with so much anger and hate.

That even a hello wasn’t good enough for you as if you didn’t want anyone to notice you

and so your bad energy damaged the vibe of such a good day.

As you threw a fit and even after you walked away we just couldn’t get over how you reacted and how we couldn’t stop thinking and talking about it.

You came in with no focus but to turn our day upside down and to just let out your anger as if we insulted you.

Sometimes little life moments can feel like a big storm and knock you back a couple of steps.

Daily Prompt: Soil

As she knead on the ground getting ready to plant her roses for the year

she let the soil go through her fingers as she begun to dig a hole for the pot to go.

She always enjoyed the feeling of the soil on her hands as it falls down back to the ground.

Gardening was one of the things that relaxed her in a way nothing else could when she just had so much on her mind.

Wearing her big hat to keep the sun from beating down on her on days when it was just to hot but the breeze made it bearable for her to stay out and upkeep her plants.

Competition

Midweek challenge from Bikurgurl. 100 Word Wednesday

100WW_W27Nicolas Picard

I’d never been to one of these events before

but Ryan was competing  for the second time and needed some support

so I came along for the ride.

And was blown away with all the talent I saw that I begun to get nerve for Ryan but didn’t want to say anything.

For he needed to focus for his turn was coming up and he just knew this year was his year and with his good luck charm he had an even better chance.

I hoped I was enough to help him win.

Daily Prompt: Edible

It was your first time cooking a meal for me

and I wasn’t sure it was edible at all but I didn’t want to be rude.

So I took one small bite and to my surprise it was more than edible,

and so I asked for seconds and it filled  me up for the night.

Afterwards we laughed at how I looked when I first saw you bring out the plates with food on them.

It was good that you weren’t offered and so we ended our night with a movie and you

promised me the next meal would be just as good or even better.

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.

Love

Should I stop to love you

or should I keep moving forward.

Are you a missing key to the answer

I seek behind the doors that are yet opened to me

and should I wait around for them to open.

Or should I move forward and just keep going until I

find a door that is already open and ready for me to

explore.

Maybe one day I will stop and let you love me but for now

I don’t want to be tied down or just maybe I’m not ready for the love to turn sour before my eyes.
