prompt 16 hour 16 – the “l” word

prompt 16 hour 16

the “l” word


open arms to a closed heart

reaching out to

places hidden,

knowing there was more there

than met the eye in the mirror

that looked more like mine than yours.


holding me up

without me knowing

so I never had a chance to push you away


when you were only trying to help.


flowers for no reason at all

because you wanted to

bring beauty to days you just knew

needed some

for no reason at all.


you win every time,

even when I didn’t think I was playing

you win;

but I get the best prize.
