Daily Prompts




Your eyes looked funny

They had a misplaced glow;

Like a dart that nearly hit the bulls eye-

But not quite.


Your nervous energy came off in waves

That wrecked my Richter scale:

You didn’t even have to clear your throat when

I was choking among the debris.


I knew your water would sweep away

My mud-what an erosion.

But they had another word for it-



It’s necessary to need

And okay to want-

But to desire

Is dangerous.
