Some People

Composed 11/3/16
Description: Inspired by today’s Daily Prompt: Sincere and some of today’s easy conversation.

I like the way love leaps
So easily from your lips
How smiles are the default
As are sweetie and friend
Despite the fact you barely know me
And I sometimes keep a distance
You’ve tasted no unkind words
Just your heart as it flies from your throat
Conversation flows
As inclusive and warm as a central fireplace
That all gather around to feel

Excuse me
If I balk as
I am more choosey with my words of love
I may hesitate to return the sentiment
But not because you aren’t the honest
Dictionary definition picture of the word
Sincere

Fall Apart

Composed 11/2/16
Description: Stress. It’s my life. Certainly until December, probably until August, maybe forever. Inspired by today’s Daily Prompt: Bludgeon

Does it come as a tap?
Nay
Nor even a shove
But like torrent rains it comes suddenly
Roaring
From above
And forever and always
Endless reams
Bludgeoning
Constantly
And I’m ripping at the seams

A famine exists
But when will it appear?
Not day nor weeks
Perhaps months or years
But can I take the hammer
Until the sunshine leaks through?
Can I even live
When I’m living black and blue?
