It’s a vicious mix of drink 
No justice til you’re done 
Say cheers to those who think 
You’ll never be the one. 

It settles in your gut 
even when you sway and weave 
You climb down off your shelf 
you brush dust off your sleeve. 

It’s a line of chain events 
which tell you who’s the boss 
stuck in a sticky web 
you’re surely meant for loss. 

So you send a friendly wave 
and call to those nearby 
In a month or two 
They won’t remember you didn’t try.

The Spark

When I look at you, I feel it. 

When I think of you, I feel it. 

When I talk to you, I feel it. 

The spark that you ignited  
when you told me you love me 
burns so brightly 
and feels so good.

#SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 23rd

Since I just started a new book online I decided to go to the page I left off on and point to something on the “page”.

It is from the book “A Haunting at Gallagher Hotel” and I pointed to: woman was annoying

That Neighbor

When you see her you turn away 

You can’t let her face wreck your day 

She talks and talks like a senseless goat 

She wears odd shoes and an old wool coat 

She likes to talk about her hair 

And how she can’t breathe smoky air 

She smokes all day its sort of sick 

Quitting that might do the trick 

She tries to take you out to lunch 

Her pickiness gives you a hunch 

The biggest problem with this meal 

Is she only eats food she can’t feel 

She asks for soup without the things 

Like veggies and those pasta rings 

There is no place to go for that 

I think she thinks they’ll make her fat 

And so I see her on her way 

I see her coat and how her hips do sway 

That annoying woman from up the street 

I turn real fast before we have to meet.

Shadow: The Daily Spur

Check out the Daily Spur for today’s word: https://thedailyspur.wordpress.com/2021/01/13/shadow/

Somedays it’s there
somedays it ain’t
Somedays it’s dark black
it looks like dark paint.
No one escapes it
Everyone can try
A shadow is scary
It makes scared people cry.
we don’t know who’s hiding
we don’t know how far
the darkness will get you
but it won’t leave a scar.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 39: (CONTRAST) in the A rhyme line.

Looking Ahead

Looking outside at the contrast 
of morning and evening are there 
it is not that I even care 
The day before is now the past 
the day ahead might be my last 
I live to see beauty today 
and breath some more in if I may 
knowing for me there is still hope 
and I will be able to cope 
with whatever comes on my way.
