Word Prompt

Silhouette

Challenge

It took me years

To reside comfortably within my own skin

No longer a silhouette of myself

I can feel my anger

I can feel my judgments

I can feel my kindness

Everything that makes up who I am

Including the fact that I just may be

Stonger and braver than the man I am with

Which is difficult for him

But necessary for me

Weekend Writing Prompt #87 – Ignite

In such a rush, I forgot my preamble!  Thank you Sammi Cox for giving me something to think about while I struggle over another prompt!

Do you remember when

With just the right smile

I was able to

Ignite your wildest passions?

Weekend Writing Prompt #68 – Derelict

Thank you, Sammi Cox for hosting this challenge.  Difficult to not be maudlin with such a word.  I hope I brought in a little hope, though.

Word Prompt

Derelict

Challenge

Sitting on some cardboard

Coffee cup in grubby hand

Eyes lowered, shame hidden

Side-stepped by passersby

A lump on the ground

Unseen, unheard

Till comes a little boy

Eye-level, steps forward

“Don’t talk to him.

He’s a dirty derelict!”

“No, Mommy,

I see a sad man.”

Word Prompt

Quarantine

Challenge

Sweat snakes rivulets down my body

Try to take a deep breath, impossible

Energy is nil, movement is out of the question

I watch the heat waves undulate before me

The air dances but I cannot

Pull myself up

Stumble across the stones, legs heavy

The door is in sight

Last bit of strength

I quarantine myself from the heat

And shiver in pleasure

Air-conditioning wins

Sanctuary.
