Chance – poem and a line

With her

he had a chance

of something more

than yesterday

 

On the day

he let past dictate

too unsure

he played too safe

 

Tomorrow came

his moment gone

he’ll try again

too late she’s gone

…..

She would, he couldn’t… end of

‘I see, it has to be your way or not at all, no hint of a compromise, no flexibility, no give and take, no sign of you being prepared to concede to give us a chance, but I will, so I’ll wait to hear from you, I’ll not ask again.’   #1lineWed – theme ‘ Give/Take’

She knew the drill, keep him hanging on, playing with his heart, promising they’ll meet up soon, keep on saying ‘I’m nervous, I’m not ready’ when he keeps asking ‘why not yet?’ – damn him, she’s confused, the things he does to her with words… #vss365 – prompt ‘Drill’

Little spent as you and me, rail tickets cheap day returns, London pubs, chain restaurants, daylight hours no overnights, walking yet seen no sights, bank accounts our #pounds not stretched, time, as us, overdrawn unchecked. #vss365 – prompt ‘Pound’  (see ‘unstretched‘)

 

 

 

 

 

Not a Day – poem and a line

Poem:

You may not want to read this

you may feel I don’t deserve you

you may wish I hadn’t written

maybe you’ve given up on me

 

I may have got it wrong

in so many ways that’s me

I may have got you wrong

in what I need to be

 

There’s not a day you’re not with me

there’s not a day I’ll not smile

there will never be a day

I’ll not wonder how you are

 

Six Words:

Miss being… as one us two

‘For so long now, for whatever reason, you’ve held back, see something that makes you nervous, too unsure, to take a chance with me. It cuts me deep, it crushes me, your every message, that never names a day for us, to at last see what we could be.’
#vss365 – prompt ‘crush’

Too late, beyond return, he saw her, old and bent, a grubby lace shawl around her shoulders held by a long-fingered purple veined hand, her creped neck bleeding, ravens circled, she shuffled closer, fear frozen, sudden darkness, eyes taken, an inner scream, tongue torn.

Given, there somewhere
two hearts, spin opposite
yet the same way round.
Two souls, fused at core
the fundamentals of being
you and me, who we are.
