Daily Prompt: Risky

I enjoy risk and what comes with them the feeling of your heart beating so fast

that you can hear it in your ears.

The adrenaline pumping through my body as the thrill of doing something that could be risky and end up bad.

Doesn’t stop me from jumping over that fence and running through that lawn.

Taking the picture of that statue even though the sign ahead clearly says not too.

Or having your flash on even though the sign clearly states no flash allowed.

Or sneaky in snacks and drinks into places that only want you to buy their stuff.

I’ll take the risk anytime and deal with the aftermath later on.

Daily Prompt: Tame

So many things she wanted to change

just so that she could fit in.

No one told her, she had to be that way

but she felt that the pressure of feeling left out and she didn’t want to be alone anymore.

And so she broke herself to just be someone she couldn’t possibly ever be and in all the things she did.

What she became in the end was broken and lost and even though she was surrounded by all these new people.

The light that used to shine so bright through her now has dimmed out to the point she just a shell of a girl she used to be.

Empty and closed off she stood by the fire, wishing she could feel that light again.

Daily Prompt: Interest

I want to say I’m interested in you

but who are you and where are you.

The days that could be spent with you are spent being lost in books

Being busy at work doing the things I slightly like half the time.

If only the things I wrote about were true when it came to you and who you were to

get lost in your eyes and your arms and your laugh.

You would interest me by just being you and there wouldn’t be a moment that you haven’t  spent just doing the things you love.

Daily Prompt: Focused

Sometimes we’re so focused on what we want that we don’t see the needs of others.

Or we are so focused on how nasty that person was to me earlier that we don’t see the kindness the person in front of us is showing us right now.

We are so focused on the now and if it’s going bad that later on there is no hope of something good coming our way.

So focused on what I have done and not on what I still have left to do.

So focused on saying or writing the right then that we start to think nothing is good enough unless we get a lot of praise on it or about it.

I want to be focused on everything that is going on around me but, some days it’s just too much.

So I choose to focused on one thing at a time and eventually I get to it all.

And, I’ll know I didn’t miss a detail or important moment because I was too focus on too many things.

That the really good things in life just past me by.

Daily Prompt: tentative

She was so uncertain of the decision she had made.

And there was no time to turn around and walk away.

She had to get on that stage and say what was on her mind and what was in her heart.

As she spoke the uncertain faded away as everything spilled out.

And when it was time for her to get off stage every person seemed to have tears in their eyes.

As they stood up and clapped for her and afterwards all she heard was praises.

She decided that day she wouldn’t be uncertain anymore about that things she felt so much about.

For, they were the things she was meant to do and be good at.

Can you feel

the feeling of the music pouring all over me and my once tired body

is moving and awake like it hasn’t been interrupted the last couple of days

from the noise of rude neighbors.

Can you feel the world just being so much brighter now than before when all you wanted to do was lay in bed and fall back to sleep and not care if you wasted the whole day away.

You tried so hard to block out the noise and at last it worked but the hours that you had missed out on really took a toll on your body.

But, as the day goes on you have so much more energy than you had before and you feel like you can do so much.

You can feel your life taking back control of the things that are bothering you and you start to do the things you used to do again.

You feel alive and refreshed and hopeful as the music beats to everything going on in your life or things that don’t but you believe and trust it will all workout.

So for a little while you forget all the things that have been bugging you for so long, and you feel lighter when the song is over and the next one is just as strong.

You walk away with a smile on your face and all the things that had pissed you off now don’t seem that big of a deal.

Daily Prompt: Elevate

My heart rate was elevated as I pushed myself to run faster before my workout was over.

It felt good to get up and get in a workout before the stress of work got in the way.

I felt at peace as the day started but I knew soon my patience will be tested.

I try to stay in a right set of mind or this will all not workout in the end.

I take a deep breath and let the music calm me before I face the world that might just drive me insane.
