Daily Prompts

Mixed Tape



I wish I could rewind

To those days when

I heard your voice



Now its frozen on tape so

I fast-forward till

I reach my favourite track.

Can you sing your way back?


I lost you somewhere

And I can’t stop searching-

Are you hiding

In between sheets of music because

My heart keeps lurching and I’m

Haunted by a symphony

Of sadness.


When I look up I see you

In the star-studded sky,

Dropping notes I sometimes miss-

I cannot keep up with your

Orchestra of Dispersion.


So sing me to an eternal sleep

A lovely lullaby-

Will you wait at the gate?

I’ll never mistake those

White white wings.
