In a heated moment,

red hatred, wrapped in loud words, take flight.

Pain cuts the heart, with its invisible razors,

A wounded soul aches in heavy darkness.

Apologize?  Perhaps, someday.

A beautiful girl,

might spend her whole life,

waiting for a prince,

who, will pursue her, with courage.

Approach? Perhaps someday.

A growing child, within every blink,

pulling away, pulling away,

moments are slaughtered, under times blade,

the battle for a pause, is lost.

Accept?  Perhaps someday.

An unnamed year, floats among stars,

it holds  veiled day, under an orange horizon,

it hangs in the mist, like a lost blue balloon, dancing in the air,

An unclaimed hour, like a rattlesnake hidden under a brown rock,

Seconds, with its yellowed teeth, eats minutes.

Death? Someday, Indeed.

  1. This was really great! I loved the use of “Perhaps, someday”. It reminded me of the end of Gone With The Wind – “I can’t think of that now, tomorrow’s another day”. I’m really liking the Daily Prompts. Are you doing them consistently?

    1. I have just started, but it is my intent to write a Daily Prompt everyday, along with other writing. I also write to 3 local newspapers every 14 days. The links are on the right column of my page. Thank you so much for reading! I am glad you enjoyed it.
