3ww writing prompt

the approach
was smooth
like any other night
at the bar,
the sweat dripped
from her bottle
the music blasted
in the background
she glanced timidly
over her shoulder,
it was inevitable
their eyes would lock
the impact would
affect her for eternity

forever they would be
connected, one soul
one heart, divided

3ww writing prompt

i waited with
baited breath
as the words
scattered across the page
waiting for those
three simple words
to be said
will it be
that they come
forever i will
wait for
i love you

knowing I am forgiven
and loved,
both emotional
and physical
the smile of a child
the tears of a loved one,
still wet on your cheek
hugs, hugs, and more hugs
faith, all knowing
unconditional, lasting faith
the pounding of a heartbeat
as you lay together
breathing in and out
love, long lasting
unconditional, love
pain, feeling it deep
within your heart
dividing one's soul
knowing when to let go

sitting at home
on a saturday morning
trying to clear my head
i write a poem
it's not a very good one
but what is one to do
when they're sitting
at home
on a saturday morn'
drinking coffee
listening to music
trying not to think
of days gone by
words not spoken
hearts not broken
it's a tradegy
this is true
but eventually
we will make it

the letter

a sealed envelope
words hidden within
telling a story of love
words flow like music
the pages of a letter
saying goodbye to a friend
wondering if we'll meet again
when this life is over.... maybe
our hearts will find each other
and we'll fall back into
our old routine of laughter
and songs and words
the words will find us
hidden within

i can't cry anymore
i hear your song
and my heart hurts
your voice was
once so healing
yet now it hurts
i feel the tears
that burning heat in my face
sometimes you have that affect
the lump in my throat
seizing my voice
pulsing in my veins
my blood rushes
i feel dizzy and light
but i can't cry
it hurts too much
to let go of love
so we change
one little thing
and it becomes a memory
i still feel the pain
but, i can't cry anymore

night has fallen
and i am alone
the sadness creeps in
i try to fight it
but i think of you
darkness brings hurt
anger, pain, sorrow
the joy is gone
the time has passed
for us
a new day
has come
to be forgiven
the sun will rise
the clouds will lift
clarity will reign

Someday you’ll be the first love I had
We’ll make memories in the snow
Sit by the fire drinking hot cocoa
We’ll watch old movies in the dark
Laugh and talk all night

We’ll take long walks on the beach
Holding hands , skipping stones
We’ll drive out to the farthest mountain
Just to sit and watch the stars

I’ll wear that old sweatshirt of yours
Just for the sweet, sweet smell of you
We’ll make pancakes in the morning
Read poetry to each other all afternoon

We’ll fight about the toothpaste
We’ll laugh and cry
Make love under the stars
Someday you’ll be the first love I had

When it all ends
We’ll have the memories
I’ll still have that sweatshirt
And you’ll still have the poetry
We’ll never be over, cause
You’ll always be the first love I had
