Daily Prompt: Impression

Sometimes first impression don’t workout

and they leave you wishing you hadn’t said or acted that way.

You hope that second chances are given or maybe they forgot that

awkward person was you and move on from the moment.

Or first impressions go so well that you remember how amazing meeting that person

was but you totally forgot their name and you don’t want to make things awkward next time when you can’t say more than hey.

First impressions are something we all care about and something we always have in the back of our mind.

But, soon were just being ourselves and first impressions are no longer an issue as we get to know each other.

Maybe we will remember the moment we first met each other and maybe we won’t but, we will know how we feel about each other now as time has gone by.

The words

are consistently running through my mind and as much as I want them to come out

they won’t.

Just like you won’t reach out and say something to me, the last words we said to each other will be the final last words.

And I would be sad about it but how long can I be sad about something I have no control over.

I’m so tired that I just want the words to come out and for you to hear them and for that to be end of this issue.

But, it’s like I keep talking myself down and so the words just go back inside a locked┬áspace inside my mind until next time.

But, as days go by I fear there will be no next time and maybe we wasted too much time ignoring the things in front of us.

That we didn’t see our time running out and as the days go on a reminder goes off somewhere saying our time has expired and everything left unsaid.

Has no ears to hear and no mouth to be spoken from it’s just gone.

And I feel nothing now and the words locked inside of me just become forgotten and unimportant as I start to more on in life.

Daily Prompt: Precipice

Things are rocky

as we stand here

talking it out.

Only to feel like

everything is about

to go over this tall cliff.

Years of friendship just

going over and crashing

and burning.

And there is nothing you or I can do

about it at this time.

All there is left to do is looking over the

cliff and seeing all the pieces that used to

connect us together and feeling sad and at peace

at the same time.

For this is an ending to something that was great and

a beginning to something so much better for both of us.

You’ve falling

and this time I can’t seem to save you

I try to call out to you but yet you just

don’t seem to want to listen to me anymore.

You’ve made your mess and now your laying it

maybe one day you will wake up and realize you need

help.

And hopefully I will be one of the calls you make

for my hand is always out to help you get through

life lessons.

Especially the one’s you just can’t seem to do on your own.

Daily Prompt: Pursue

I want to pursue you

Not because of your looks

which may one day fade away.

But, because of your eyes and your smile show so much kindness.

Your words full of so much knowledge but still you’re so urged to learn.

Your worth the chase even though you don’t seem to running away but, walking my way.

Getting to know you is a challenge I do enjoy.

Daily Prompt: None

I didn’t want to know none of the bad things you were telling me right now.

I tried to not listen but you were talking so loudly.

That everyone nearby could hear and you didn’t seem to care at all.

you laughed and joked around like what you had done and going to do was nothing

But, at the end of your lunch I saw them take you away.

And it was none of my business that you wanted everyone to know you were just joking around.

Daily Prompt: Roots

So many roots to pull if I want

to pull away from this all.

I don’t want to wait around and be thrown out like a┬ádead plant.

I want some love and attention

I don’t want to be forgotten

I don’t want to stand around

and be invisible to you.

What roots do I have left here

in this place that is slowly suffocating me.
