Tessa, I’m Listening

I listened to too much chatter
and depending on who,
it’s either adorable, bearable,
or even likeable, it allows me to be
dead to myself,
this door to you, lightly patterned
impressions, allows me to reload,
heaved into your sun,
tracing your anatomy,
chancing upon your files, so don’t ever come
to a screeching stop, coz I know that you
love me back, you’re no hack,
coz I’d not suffer no fools gladly.


Day 7…the one I missed out on.

“Write an activity poem. Of course, the first activity that springs to my mind is writing poetry, but there are many other possible activities from which to choose: running, driving, folding clothes, tying knots, casting lines, dancing, sleeping, and so much more. Pick an activity and write it out.”

Word list from The Sunday Whirl, Wordle 276.

Hi guys, this world is made up of relationships so ask yourself, who do you hang out with? That probably defines your world. And yes, it’s plural, worlds, as it really refers to different circles of friends doesn’t it? And do you realize that the people you hang out with change, and that these changes would mean that you’re changed if for some reason, a person drops off from your circle, whatever precipitates that. If you believe in God then you’d believe that God brings new people into your life and removes others, so in that way the people you used to hang out with becomes a phase, know what I mean? Imagine saying, oh she’s just a passing phase. Sometimes this passing brings with it hard lessons in relationships. One of these lessons could be, for instance, that a person you thought of as a friend is actually an attention-seeker, that she was nice to you as long as you behaved as her squad, that she actually has no intention of appreciating you on your own terms, so your epiphany causes you to move away from her. That’s how it changes you. Get it?

I know that people go through these all the time, and that keeps things in check. So we’d all grow up, know what I mean?

So for the prompt, write a relationship poem.
