                                                     PROMPT- “SOFT BROWN HAIR”     2/18/2020

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is soft-brown-hair-1.jpg

I get to lay with you for a second and I run my fingers through your soft brown hair
I remember when we did this more often, you would stare into my eyes and I felt so alive
Now you barely speak to me, the connection is gone
Even when you mess up, I am the one that is wrong
We barely get along

As I run my fingers through your soft brown hair
You don’t even seem to care
It was once real, now this feeling is unfair
You’ve stopped me from becoming aware

Pure Intentions.png
Words I can’t explain
Explain to me why you haunt to hurt
Hurt others and then expect love
Love yourself before you love others
Others will show you affection
Affection that is genuine
Genuine people make it far
Far in space, in a better state
State your intentions
Intentions must be pure

COMFORT ZONE.png
Your comfort zone will kill you
this is all you know because this all you been through
who knew you would enjoy this feeling, even if the feeling is pain
step out of the only zone you know, and go explore everything you don’t know
go with the flow, go slow, I don’t care, just go
if you stay in that zone, you won’t be exposed, you’ll never grow
outgrow the pain, outgrow the comfort zone
you might find a success overflow although if you stay in your comfort zone, you’ll never know
comfort zone

there used to be six of us.png
There used to be six of us, now I’m alone
the first was pride, I sent her to hide
the second was sadness, that girl was madness, I killed her with passion
the third was insecurity, she died on her own when we hit maturity
the fourth was anger, she was a strangler, I had to strangle her
the fifth was fear, it always felt like the end was near, she had to disappear
there used to be six of us, now I’m alone
it’s me, joy

Add a subheading.png
Your performance belongs in a theater
you’re careless in love but make effort in lying
the sky is on fire tonight
while you persuaded her with a fake appearance of passion
you welcomed her beautiful frame
but quickly excluded her thoughts
you made her weak and then took your shot
never thinking about the damage
never caring about the damage
before you her flowers were spreading all over her body
you took her out of her garden
she was light and now she has darkened
the sky is on fire tonight
she is waiting for lightning to guard her
the sky is on fire.jpg
