RagTag Daily Prompt: Nervous

Check out the prompt: https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2021/09/03/rdp-friday-nervous/

Don’t ask me if I’m nervous
I’d lie and tell you no
you’d ask me how I’m feeling
and where’d those feelings go.
It isn’t like I’m private
or thinking of what to do
its just that I am waiting
for someone just like you.
So take my hand and follow
me up to my still spot
then sit and have a coffee
and share just what you’ve got.
I know it’s surprising
I’m really not so blunt
I just want you to see that
it’s you I really want.

All along our lives we go
with friends and pets and people we know
but have we thought about the rest?
the people whom we don’t know the best?

From pain of sickness to that of sorrow
I know I will still have tomorrow
and finding new relations to toast
reminding ourselves it’s not right to boast.

Like a blanket of snow

Laying upon the frozen ground

During the early morning 

No movement nor a sound

Asleep for time unknown

Beneath a frosty sheath

Waiting for the spring

The life waits underneath.

“Don’t you have a backbone?”
I don’t know how this means that you have guts!
And how does having guts make you stronger? Don’t all people have guts?
Does having guts mean you are careless since you might try stuff other people won’t?
If you “have no backbone” how are you surviving?
When I think of no backbone I think of jellyfish but then I wonder how anyone can say that a jellyfish is a wimp? Have you ever been stung by a jellyfish? They might not have a backbone but they sure do get you good!
This then makes me think of all the other things that don’t have backbones but that could still kill you, like a snake.
Do spiders have backbones? I don’t think so but they sure are brave going wherever the hell they want regardless of who cares or not.

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.

mask: Ragtag Daily Prompt word

Skewed Reality

I wear one to hide my shame 
I wear one to keep me safe 
I wear one to stay alone 
I wear one to block my fears 

Take one off to show the world who you are 
Take one off to feel pride in who you are 
Take one off to come together with others 
Take one off to say you will survive 

hiding from myself 
living close always alone 
wishing acceptance

Up Here

The view from up here 
is pretty you know. 

You can tell where it’s sunny 
and where there is snow. 

You see the forest of green 
and the oceans of blue 

And you get all of this  
from an aquiline view.
