The Top Of The World

Prompt of the day - Window : My husband left today for a business trip. This trip was different, however, because this time he was flying to his destination instead of driving.

Once Before

There is a dark cloud coming down, faster than ever before. Its presence made known to all around, even before knocking on the door.   It's a prison of sorts, for the innocents, those who have lived it before.

Self Absorbed

Don't turn around, your chance has past. Keep moving forward, or you'll never last.   All that's behind you, is over and done.

As I get older, I look at younger people flirting, and reminisce of the times when I myself would be flirting with someone, or find someone to be flirting with … Continue reading An Affair To Remember

The Clock Is Still Ticking : Time Isn’t Waiting For You

I used to beg him for his time. It was pathetic, really. It was as if he was the only person in my life, and I had to convince him that he wanted to spend time with me.
