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: 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.

Daily Prompt: Tether

I feel like your pulling me by chain and every time you say something to me the

chain tightens and I feel like I can’t breath.

You promise so much and yet you leave me on

that chain with no hope of being free.

I try with all my might to break these chains and get my life

back on the right track.

But, no matter how hard I try it just won’t give and I’m slowly

losing my strength as I try to fight through this and survive.

When will my chain break off and I can breath lighter and feel

the weight of it all off my shoulders at last.

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: Paper

Paper you used to be my go to when I had to write something down

whether it be poetry or just a thought.

I would just get this feeling and quickly I would grab a pencil and just start writing until

my heart was content.

The words would just flow from my mind on to that paper and I wouldn’t stop until I felt I had let it all out.

I still have poems on paper and read them now and then but my love for writing on paper isn’t as strong as before.

As I spend more time writing on my computer than I do with paper.

Sometimes I go back to you paper and write and write until my hands just can’t write anymore and I have to rest.

Paper you were what I used in the past and sometimes in the present and if It hadn’t started with you.

I wouldn’t have a full notebook of poems now and I wouldn’t have so many more poems on my computer either.

I had your back and you had my back and together we could accomplish anything we put our minds too.

Then one day you notice something we weren’t both good at and soon we were going into two directions and there was no goodbye just you disappeared.

And the anger and hurt I felt didn’t seem to matter to you now that we were no longer friends and you had moved on and I guess I had to move on too or I’d never get over the hurt.
