Prompt #6

Standard

Tree Grass Snow Bella Grey Green Brick Red
April Blizz

My birth month reminds me its time to stay in the house
Ducking trees but embracing the sunshine and rainy days of a typical April
Gas mask for the grass cutting world outside of my Pennsylvanian home
But this April the trees are still bare
The grass is still slow from slumber
Snow is still littering the world of the fun lovers
Where is Captain Planet when you need him to clean this ice up and bring sunshine
Bowlegged Bella prances around knowing in her fur summer lounging and sun bathing is coming soon
But today its grey
The grass isn’t grey
And I am still retreating inside my brick red house

Prompt # 5

Standard

“Shouts to Gweny”
Days where the boys stand in hallways, ice box cool
Teach you how to get a girl, what we learned in school
get extra pizza for the plate, back from lunch we lurked late
Asked by recruiters our dreams, and shot back we straight
Drunk of living is our sin
plus Kristan’s fathers Sapphire Gin
Mind racing towards a good June
Not knowing this summer we’ll die soon

She’s So Shy

Standard

Koi fish in the school pond
played the stairs and watched life through window panes
used her silence as a prophylactic to keep her from feeling lonely and keep you from connecting to her
Boys throw slander
Girls throw misdirection
You throw yourself into your bedroom and let the lights of the computer screen light up your life
She’s just shy says the understanding
not comfortable with new
Not adjusted to the villages of boys knocking at her castle walls
Rapunzel never sent invitations from her windows, until she was ready to come out
And she will not invite you into her bedroom cocoon unless she is ready to let you in
so don’t rush
be patient with this koi fish
She’s just so shy

The Drive Pt. 2

Standard

The car has to keep moving for me to do better
And so I keep the car in drive
Rear view is filled with fog
This last year has been a blur
I can’t explain why I haven’t talked in so long
But im here in the driver seat
Confessions of a workaholic and its become work to keep this pace up
Work just to keep a smile going
Work to maintain
I use to work to be great
Now I work to maintain it
I can’t spell complacent
Pit stops were made for patience
Rest stops were made for weary
I’m neither
Just wanting to finish and far from it
This is years of work and being unrewarded
Packed up my life and I’m going for the goals
This is the drive that all those who are dedicated take
A drive within their own life to get what they deserve
This is the drive that all those who have chosen to change have taken
It is troubled but worth it to get there, where ever you want to be
The car has to keep moving for me to do better
And so I keep the car in drive
Rear view is filled with fog
This last year has been a blur
I can’t explain why I haven’t talked in so long
But I am ready for a long ride if it means making my world into what I want

Electronic Kisses

Standard

My signal is low
Going through a night without you in my bed
Only mr. Fantastic and space jam knows the kind of reaching im doing for your body tonight
Sheets are missing your warmth
I need you in my home
I’m going crazy
All I have is this smart phone, so please respond to my electronic kisses
Place the screen on your body
Imagine that your fingers are in my hair
Feel that buzz when I put my lips on your neck
Drunk in love, get light-headed off my affection, 143
You can’t taste the Lip Balm im using but its peppermint
And you can’t feel the softness of my lips right now, just remember that they are still as big wet and cushioned.
I can’t feel your tongue but right now but I envision pointed and swift, sword cut my heart out lady its yours
Signal getting stronger
Tonight all I can offer is electronic kisses
Keep your phone charged if you want more

Why Would Superman Want To Be Human

Standard

Kahel was never born to be Clark Kent
He was born to be Superman
Born great and to live to be greater
So why would Superman want to be Clark Kent?
Why would the world’s greatest man want to lesser himself to be normal?
Was it his insecurities?
Was it that he knew the world would be to insecure to accept him?
Why would the worlds greatest man want to be less?
Was it because of his woman?
Was it for his family?
Was it for safety? They kill what they don’t understand.. They hate what they can’t explain
Need no explanation for great or destruction
They say no need to be great
I say no need to destroy him
Let Kahel be a hero
Celebrate that he is all we hope to be but fall short
But that’s not human nature
That he is an unnatural human
And insecurity rules the day
Why would superman want to be human, when every human wants to be superman
