May 16, 2013 We Write Poems

Prompt: Write apiece about the body.

Body and Soul

We are in the body
We are the body
We act the body
With eyes
Hands
Feet

But what of feeling
The body feels

Of the deeper feeling
We are soul

We create
We sooth
We heal
We are soul

Not one or the other
We are all one
You and me
And one with
All that we see

#156: Prompt Dark and Gloomy

Dark and Gloomy
Sometimes it is true
Things don’t work out
A hole it torn
Paint is spilled
All is dark
Our mood gloomy
But in the morning
The sun rises
We begin again

April 30, 2013 A Simple Thing

A Simple Thing
The loss of a friend
A simple thing
One of the saddest
That can
Happen to a human heart
Breaks it in two

Sure death is bad
Really sad
Aw… but the loss of a friend
Who enriched your life
Leaves a hole
That cannot be filled
All the way to China

The loss a deep regret
Sorry
I couldn’t be
The one you called friend
I’ll keep your memory
Miss you to the end of time

One of the saddest
Things that can
Happen to a human

Note: It’s happened to me, maybe happened to everyone. One you liked…loved and called your friend, has changed their mind. Doesn’t want to be your friend anymore, for whatever reason. Causes a heartbreak that cannot be fixed, another sadness, you will carry, cannot forget. We might ask, “Why do you want this friend, who does not want you?” There is no answer, only sadness.
