Denial – Daily Prompt

via Daily Prompt: Denial

What do you want from me?
I didn’t ask for this.
I didn’t ask for you!
Leave me be!

Walking through life
alone and free.
Happy in my plight
peaceful quiet nights.
In you walk
full of spitfire
life.
A ray of sunshine
silence broken
laughter in the night

Why me?
Why not him
or her?
Anyone else
A companion make.
There is the dog!
Please go
for Godsakes!

What do you want from me?
Why can’t I breathe?
You’re coming closer….
Please….
don’t leave.

Tick Tock

Tick tock

Tick tock

The clock ticks down

The minutes stop

Tick tock

Tick tock

The beast has risen

Death appears

Tick tock

Tick tock

Times up

To late for prayers

Never Be Far

Tea for two

Apples are blue

When the night sky alights

I think of you

Come to me

When daisies can see

I will give to you

Kisses so sweet

Lie with me 

On angel’s wings

Promises of true love

I will sing

Listen if you must

To serpent’s lies

See the truth

Within my eyes

Tea for two

Apples are blue

Wish upon a star

I will never be far

Daily Prompt: Crossing

via Daily Prompt: Crossing

The days go by
one by one
there seems no end
to this torment
and scorn
When lines are crossed
and bridges burned
there is no turning back
no redemption earned
The chasm before me
is wide and deep
Desert lay behind
green and lush before me sweeps
Crossing into the unknown
is scary at best
One last bridge
one foot forward
one last hope
for a life worth living.

Poetry – writing prompt

Source: Unknown

Crisp clean lines

Scrawled across the paper

Images of beauty

Tranquillity

Death and renewal

What ends

Will begin again

Different in all but one

No matter how long you fight it

Rant and rave against it

Ignore what is so plain to see

Life moves forever forward

Do not dismiss the beauty around you

Revel in it

For tomorrow is another day

The beauty different

Wonders to take in

Process

Put to paper

What the eye sees

The soul feels

And the heart hears

Be it a sweet song

Or tradgey

This is from a prompt on Writing Outside the lines

No More

chaos-lost
Nexus Desktop: Chaos Lost

Darkness surrounds me
threatens to consume
at ever turn.
Make me into something
a mother would spurn.
I try to fight it
with thoughts of love
hope
family
all that is good in life,
but despair is ever my bane,
taking that which was once good
turning it into hatred
burning hot
bright.
Beware of creatures
living deep within,
claws sharpen
teeth gnashing,
sinking deep into flesh
releasing poison
to blacken souls,
rendering chaos
before taking flight.
Hold onto the light
grasp with both hands
cling to hope with desperation
or darkness will consume
life until with one blink
existence is
no more.
