Daily Prompt: Passport

To take a trip across the world

sometimes requires a passport.

And as one travels it begins to be filled up

with stamps from different places.

Those journeys leaves you with a lifetime

of memories.

And your thoughts of those times always seem to bring a smile to your face.

Daily Prompt: Passport



Is something my body doesn’t seem to have much time to do.

For so many things I’m responsible for that the simple things have to be put on hold.

My body is always on alert mode and there is no time to truly just sit down and relax for there is always a timer ready to go off.

Telling me time is up and I have to keep moving and do more and more until I’m too tired to move or think.

I can’t relax not even for a moment for something might go wrong or get behind.

And I have to stay ahead of the mess not behind it.

Daily Prompt: Fortune 2

I didn’t know if this was my chance

to make things right.

Or maybe I just wanted to see your face one more time

and that was a chance I was willing to risk.

Even if the end result were you being mad at me for a lifetime.

Daily Prompt: Fortune 2



I wonder about what happened to you

but I know your future isn’t my concern anymore.

As I move on in the present sometimes you slip back into my mind

as if something just needed me to think about our time together.

But, as quickly as you come you disappear and I’m happy for the past should stay

put away for a reason.

My day is better than it was before and life is so much more simpler

I don’t say the wrong things that much now and I don’t second guess anything.

I listen to my gut and things turn out so much better.

No blinders on as I see everything so clear and I know these years will just grow with more strength and hope and happiness.

Nothing to look back on but the things that made me stronger and everything else just is blur

for I’m living for now and not worrying about the things I could have had or shouldn’t have had at in the first place.

I’m true

to you with my words and my emotions

being poured on this paper today.

Tomorrow will be a new day for me

and hopefully you will join me on this new adventure.

That may take us both away from the one’s we love just

see what the world has out there for us.

For were stuck here and I don’t want to sink into the quicksand

and be gone with nothing worthy to leave behind.

Together this could just be the moment that defines everything for us

but you just have to have faith and take my hand and trust me.

Jump with me and lets not look back to the things that have not been worth looking back on

in the first place.

Daily Prompt: elixir

A love potion would it be worth it

how long would it last?

And would the results be worth it?

A mindless lover that just seems to want too much.

Some would think a love potion for it would change everything.

But, what if it just made things worse for they weren’t themselves.

And when it wore off would they still love you or hate you forever.
