Close Call

The building as grey as the sky above
The building as grey as the sky above
The sun peaking out through the clouds
The sun peaking out through the clouds
Letting in a new start
Preparing for a fresh start

I let addictions get the best of me
I let addictions get the best of me
Using these vices to protect me from love
Using these vices to protect me from love
I needed protection from the hurt
Terrified that she only wanted to hurt me

All she did was love me
All she did was love me
She gave me one last chance to love her
She gave me one last chance to love her
One more chance to treat her how she should
She needed my help for our new beginning

We wanted to start a new life together
We wanted to start a new life together
I needed to learn we are stronger together
I needed to learn we are stronger together
This grey building helped me be open to love
So I can give love to our new beginning

Loss

Another creative writing assignment

I breathe in dry murky air
I breathe in dry murky air
The building as grey, as the clouds above
The building as grey, as the clouds above

He left me a year after she left
Today as dim as the day we found out

I found my first love in my years of solitude
I found my first love in my years of solitude
My second love, in the stress of adulthood
My second love, in the stress of adulthood
She left when my temptation was tested and I failed
He left when my temptation broke him

Me, the broken man in a grey world
Me, the broken man in a grey world
Is alone after 35 years
Is alone after 35 years
My loves went to fight my temptations
I stayed home, stayed weak

This building is all I have left
This building is all I have left
Here, I can fight my temptations
Here, I can fight my temptations
I can fight like he did, save myself
I will learn how to deal with being alone

Grey: Creative Writing Assignment

Okay. So he’s cute. Really cute.
When his eyes crinkle
When he smiles.
And nice, always to me
My special treatment.
And goodness, he’s funny.
He’s charming
And just so great.
But

I don’t know if he’ll like me

Okay. So, I am cute
With my wild curls and
Daring smile.
I’m a bit quiet and funny
And charming. I’m pretty
great. I love me.


But

I don’t know if he’ll like that

Okay. So, he’s a Taurus
And I’m a Capricorn.
He’s about fitness
And I can get into that.
He’s flirty and I loooove
Being flirted with.

But

I don’t think he’s into me like that.

Okay. So…..
I mean…..
Well…..

Okay. So, I’m black . You know
And he’s white

Which is fine and all
I’m not complaining

But

Will he like me?

Even thinking that he
Wont like me hurts me.
I mean
What kind of world.
Makes you think like that?

Why does skin color make
Anyone
Not like another?

Now, say I love him and
He loved me.

Then what?

I mean we’ll be happy,
Right?

I’m a dreamer
I can see us together
Happy, loving
I’m fine with that

But
Does he see me like that?
