After staying up all night to muster up the courage

to make the most important call of her life,

she left a message and stood outside

the booth staring at the phone

waiting in silent, bated breath for the phone

to ring and hear love return her call…

so she could finally exhale.

Bright lights,

airplane awaiting for clearance

to fly…

but all I can see

are the tears that fall

with the raindrops…endlessly,

as my lover sits in the airplane

waiting for his new life to take off

without me to never return again.

Over The Years

Your Daily Word Prompt – Drench – April 3, 2019

NaPoWriMo2019 – Day 3 – Write something that involves a story or action that unfolds over an appreciable length of time.

Twittering Tales #130 April 3, 2019 –  Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less.

Photo Prompt:

Over the years…

there were so many things

I did want to say

but never did because

I did not know the Love

that lives in my heart today

~ * ~

And then there were the things

I didn’t want to say

but alas, I did say them

whilst drenched in the midst of

the pain and anger of words

spoken that cut my heart

to bleed and speak its revenge

~ * ~

Then, little by little, step by step

through the years Grace divine

has healed the wounds refine

and blessed this tongue to speak kind

to no longer hurt the broken who

lash out as a shield of protection

instead pour out healing’s intention

so that they may drink from

the Julep of forgiven.

~ * ~

Proverbs 18:21 (AMPC)

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].

Caged souls

that…

cannot sing

lying in wait

for release

whilst in the

midst of their

dark season

of healing

and their

broken wings

are mended

to fly

far and beyond

the pain that

took their life

and become

the lyrics

that sing

to the other

caged souls

that are

lying in wait

lifting their spirits

and filling them

with hope

to carry

them through

until…

it is their time

to fly

far and beyond

the pain

that killed them.
