Days are numbered
Running out fast
Sun is setting
Long shadows cast
Things done differently
Can't change the past
No time to worry
This last

The prompt at One Single Impression this week is Icarus. Check out the site and see how other people interpreted this prompt.

The sun is so hot
His wings will probably melt
Falling to his death




throughout my days....
deep into every night~
I am haunted.
a curse, some might say-
of an all consuming
love for you.
it is a ruinous path...
a dead end street.
I don't deserve your love
nor can I hope to
have your love returned
to me.
how did this happen?
unable to have the one
I so dearly want...
something must be done-
I have not the strength
nor the desire
to rid myself
of these feelings.
the flames of my passion
I can't extinguish~
my quest has but
one conclusion...
follow the path of Icarus-
be incinerated by the sun.
a coward's way out
that it might be
I can no longer
live without you,
so I pray for
a swift and merciful end...

some words are said to often

many others,not enough

what is the correct balance?

when mutually felt,

do they need to be spoken?

recognizing what to say,

worrying about picking

just the right words-

so instead saying nothing

classes need to be taught

maybe a guide to follow.

ultimately it is

an individual's decision

what can be lived with.

will there be regrets?

only time will tell

Following no apparent path

Languidly drifting

On the water


Travelling along

Indiscriminately wandering

Never stopping it's nomadic journey

Gliding through time

but not flying-
wandering with no path,
or speeding
with a single -minded fury-
but ominously suffocating
bringer of life-
harbinger of death...
how can something
be so complex?

Trepidation is the
Reason why
Man and woman who are
Ballonists and
Love to float high
In the air
Never want to fall out of the

Reign (OSI)

Reigning in the Past

a brief and accidental encounter

igniting a waning
ember of remembrance.
from the past re-emerge.
what I had known
now I do not.
convergence of two worlds
melding into one.
wanting to do
the right thing.
sometimes doing
other times not.
my head or my heart-
something is bound to explode!
competing against a foe
I can't beat (myself)

come over here
you should see this
take your time
you won't be sorry
immerse yourself
before your eyes
an underlying layer of
beauty starts to unfold
rich and vibrant
the depth is amazing
so much more
than meets the eye
a majestically woven
tapestry of brilliance
unbelievable that it was here
waiting to be seen
only if you look
