Daily Prompt: Elastic

Your always so flexible with your time

there is nothing that can be thrown at you.

That you can’t find a way to make time for it.

You don’t overwork yourself but you just  have the right amount of time and advise to give to those that you love.

Your door is always opened and your arms are always welcoming someone in for a hug

and your smile is always so bright and reaches your eyes.

There never seems to be a moment when you let other things get in your way, you are flexible for you have done so much and lived so long and enjoyed all that you were set out to see.

That now your ready to be put in one spot and you want to help out as much as you can and be true to all that have helped you over the years or months.

Daily Prompt: Circle

I’m living this life and lately it feels like I’m walking around in circles

and the hope of getting anything done just doesn’t seem possible.

I feel stuck and even if I wanted to move forward it’s like I’m sinking in quicksand

and I don’t have the time or energy to get myself out.

I’m stuck and the path one would have to take and help me seems to be not the safest one and so I wait here hoping it won’t be more than one hour before I find my way again.

I’m struggling to hold on and the mountain I have to climb to find the answers to my life now is so hard and high that it will take some time  before I am safe and above all that is going on right now.

I could

use your touch as the memories come to my mind

and the tears begin to fall.

Moving forward alone just doesn’t seem so possible right now

so hold me close and give me the comfort I need so much lately.

I want to get lost inside my thoughts but the truth and reality is too strong

I can’t pretend that everything is okay right now.

I know that I need to have the joy and love that will outweigh the sorrow I feel

so come to me and wrap me up inside your arms and hold me until I stand on my own.

And even then still hold my hand and guide me through the things I’m still not strong enough to deal with right now.

Daily Prompt: Leaf

All the leaves are falling off the trees as the first day of fall appears

Even though the weather is still hot and warm.

I’m so ready to just relax and feel some breezy weather but I’m not yet ready for winter

just cold enough it doesn’t make me sweat.

I’m ready to see all the people raking up leaves and kids making mountains out of leaves just to jump in them and make a mess.

While just smiling and laughing at the simple things in life that bring them joy.

Fall one of my favorite time of the year

just ready to wrap up a little and enjoy the breeze all throughout the days, with just a little sun beating down on me.

Daily Prompt: Recreate

I want so bad now to recreate all the times we spent together but I know there is no going back.

As you leave me here to fight another day on this earth, I know that you are at peace in heaven.

I know that I am not the only sad one to see you go and it would be selfish of me to want you to be here still when you’re in a better place now.

I’d take all the rough days of my life just to be with you right now and see your face and feel your embrace.

But, I can’t go back to past and the tears I cry are for the moments I had with you and I love you and I know this day didn’t go very great.

But, hearing you were gone was a wake up call.

For no matter how busy and rude people are and will be, you were my little light that shined bright and you loved me so much and now I feel so sad.

I want to recreate the last moment I saw you and make it last for a lifetime but as I close my eyes tonight I know my thoughts will be about you.

I will carry my memories of you with me all the time and even though I wish the world would stop just for me to have enough time to be in my thoughts.

I know the world will carry on with or without me and I know I will build my wall back up and life will go on.

You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).

Light to my darkness shine so brightly in my face tonight.

My mind

Is long gone and all the things I used to think or care about are far gone like a dream

Once my eyes open up everything about that dream comes to me but soon as the day goes by the dream soon is erased from my mind.

I don’t want to forget everything that made me, who I am but my mind is fighting time and everything that is being thrown at me and it just isn’t enough for me to handle right now.

I try to stand so strong when all I want to do is falling to the ground and let all the weight of everything just bring me down.

And maybe I will get up when I have had time to gather my strength back.

But, the truth is I don’t let the weight of the stress bring me down even when  I feel like I just can’t go on, some how I go on and even though I’m complete running on empty.

There is nothing I can do but keep moving on and doing my best even when I just feel like I can’t possibly give anymore right now.

My mind, my body all so weak at that moment that I just don’t know what would help to keep me moving forward because I’m burning off my calories than I have eaten and the energy I know I need to go on is nowhere to be found.

I can take a moment and say a prayer and move on and trust that it will work out and I do and the strength and sanity I need comes in full force and it’s like I’ve been zapped and nothing can bring me back down to my breaking point.
