Prompt 24 Hope

Waiting at the expense of yourself

that guarantees nothing

when hope keeps you dreaming

while falling apart

through my impoverished

historical neighborhood as children during play

transitioned to the battlefield as adults

in the midst of being poor

as kids we never had to look to one another for safety

once contained an invisible boundary that you knew you would get into trouble if you crossed

now we tailor our lives away from the ignited rage of poverty where gunshots keep you running

Life occurs differently depending on the side

through spiritual fusion of realms

forged in honest secrets hidden

within beauty of naivety

self harm tilted towards colored patterns of self discovery

mirrored conflicts affirm long waits

can be beautiful, vivid and wild


Prompt 16

Hello again,

I heard you breathing
while you were falling

I held your head up

to the clouds after opening

my doubt to the sunshine

I didn’t hear you calling

Too busy looking out the window

waiting for the day’s moon

Prompt 15

His small problems

became big ones

he set the table with demons

and had a seat

while he scooted near

gave them all the fire

they needed to implode his world

He swam in deep waters

drowning all dreams

punishing himself
