Her instinct was to run, as far as she could get,

Far away from the possible pain,

Far away from the possible regret.


But what she didn’t know,

What she didn’t think through,

There was only so far to go,

Before she realized she needed you.


So she made the journey back,

Along the way she thought of what to say,

Of why she felt so out of whack,

And of all days on their wedding day.


Her instinct told her to run,

From the uncertain and obscure,

Not to stay and weather the storm,

But to remain protective and unsure.


But she continued to come back,

To face her decisions poor,

To put her life back on track,

And to doubt his love no more.


Thirty years went by,

They seemed to go in a wink,

She thought of her loving guy,

Thoughts of leaving him she never again did think.

Daily Word Prompt:


See You Clear As Day

In my dreams I tend to see you,

It always takes me by surprise,

And when I wake or come to,

I find tears in my eyes.


They don’t come from sadness,

They don’t come from fear,

Once could turn to madness,

When I realize you’re not here.


It all seemed so real,

So vivid and true,

But then I’m left to feel,

And confirm once again, I’m missing you.

Daily Word Prompt:

Ode to Chocolate

Chocolate, I have to resist you.

You whisper sweet nothings in my ear,

Your taste I long and cling to,

As long as I have you near.

Chocolate, I have to resist you.

Always thinking of your taste,

You chase my troubles away,

You are just too good to waste.

Chocolate, I have to resist you.

I must stop the cravings coming in,

It’s a constant battle against you,

One I’m not sure I will ever win.

Chocolate, I cannot resist you.

But why should I have to try,

Trying to live a life without,

Why should I even try?
