Daily Prompt: Crumb

Crumbs sometimes they can’t be avoided

when your eating something so good.

You try to avoid a mess but when something like crumb cake

or anything that is so good.

Usually comes with crumbs and you try your best to not make a mess and look like a slob but when something so good that each bite just makes you so happy.

What you look like after eating it isn’t a worry or a concern for you, your just happy to enjoy the meal or snack when you can.

Ride with me

100 Word Wednesday: Week 35

Come take a ride with me on this quite day

Lets forget about all the things that are getting in our way.

Let’s enjoy the things that are right now and not the things

we can’t predict.

Let’s take our time to make things right and hope that the faith we have will hold strong

for us as we go down this path together as friends, as lovers, as two people who not only want the best for each other but other people as well.

We hope for a good future and know that it is coming for us soon and that no matter what we will get through it with something we’ve learned from it and maybe something we regret as well.

Only time will tell.

Daily Prompt: Continue

As the seasons begin to change and life seems to continue on as people start to bring out their coats.

And cold morning turn into cold afternoons to very cold nights

Soon all the leafs will start to fall of trees and people will continue to rake them up and put them in bags to be collected.

We seem to continue on in our life as problems pop up left and right and you’re stress levels raise day after day.

You want to continue to be happy in the life you live and sometimes you question the decisions you’ve made.

But, you continue on learning from your mistakes and others as well.

You don’t give up even when every bone in your body is screaming to just walk away and maybe just maybe you can get through this.

You come home completely exhausted with nothing left to give and your grateful for the time off, because you just can’t continue on with the low-level of energy running through you.

Daily Prompt: Rhyme

A  lot of people like to rhyme and find the right word that rhymes good with

what they are trying to get across.

I don’t rhyme or try to rhyme just because as I write it doesn’t end up being that way.

But, it can be such an interesting thing to hear someone rhyming a poem out or a rap or a song.

For they are carefully picking out the right words to say to one another and they are trying craft out their thoughts in maybe complete sentences or just a couple of words.

We all know what we are good at and rhyming is something a lot of people like to play with and, I have seen some really good work and it makes me become fascinated by the process that person went through.

Rhyme something they say

and maybe one day I will but, not today I say .

I promise

you that you will be great if you just let go of your past and you lean on me for once

I will hold you through the storms that seem to be holding you back from living the life you were meant to live.

I’ve never been too far away when you are feeling so down that this world just doesn’t seem like it was meant for you.

I’m here to tell you that you belong and that you will accomplish the things no one thought you were capable to do.

You will more just a girl who became a woman and, the struggle that you have faced and continue to deal with will not compare to the greatest you will bring to this world.

That is not prepared for the words that will come out of your mouth.

Daily Prompt: Magnetic

Like a magnet I was drawn to you the moment you smiled at me

Your smile was so bright and welcoming I just couldn’t look away.

And the way your eyes would always seem to light up when ever I came into a room

it was clear then that you were equally drawn to me as well.

Your laugh always seem to brighten up a room the minute it leaves your mouth

Your hugs were the best parts of my day, you always smelled like the fresh air from the mountains.

A little bit like wood and pinecones it was always refreshing to be around you.

You always liked to share the stories of your life and when you tell a story it would always draw in anyone that happened to be near.

We would all listen so closely and the story were always funny and entertaining to hear.

It was like we were destined to be together nothing seemed likely to pull us apart since that day long ago when you smiled at me.

Like that day every day spent with you seems like the first time we met refreshing and adventure just waiting for me to explore even if it takes a lifetime to learn everything about you.

Fire

It first starts in my throat and I feel like my breath was just taken from me and then it begins to grow into my stomach until I curled up in so much pain.
That it just doesn’t seem possible for one person to be able to handle all of t his at once without passing out.
I reach out for a bottle of water to quench my thirst to put out the fire in my throat for I’ve seen better days.
I try so hard to feel better so that I can get back to feeling secure in the body that carries me through it all.
I fight for my sanity as my head begins to spin but yet I can’t give up for they are counting on me even though I’m barely holding on myself.
Some how I get through it all just to crash and burn the next day and then back to being okay the next.
There is a war going on inside of my body and I don’t think that I’m winning right now but the battle is not over yet.
I’m not fully myself yet but I’m fighting with all I got to get back to the me  that was strong and dependable no matter what was thrown my way.
