In Her Eyes (A Nonet)

For the first time in a long, long time
she felt beautiful in her eyes
her lips red from his kisses
arms warm from his embrace
long after he left
the bed still warm
but only
where he
lay

Daily Prompt: Brand New Me

Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to by anyone, alive today or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us METAMORPHOSIS

To wake and be someone else but me
I wonder who I’d want to be.
Would I do it?  Would I balk?
Or am I just all talk?
Stay this way, and be
the soul I was
meant to be –
still just
me.

Daily Prompt: Cacophony

Write about a noise — or even a silence — that won’t go away. (We’ll let you interpret this in different ways…)

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ANXIETY.

How I envy the confident ones
Who silence voices of the past
Who forbid self-doubt to seep
To burrow in too deep
Never allowing
the pain to last
Knowing well
there lies
hell

Daily Prompt: Love Never Lasting

Do you have a tattoo? If so, what’s the story behind your ink? If you don’t have a tattoo, what might you consider getting emblazoned on you skin?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERMANENT.

I have a tattoo between my breasts
Inked there for a boy I once loved
Long gone now though ink remains
Forever there it taints
Each day reminding
Innocence fades
It taunts me
Stills me
Caged
