November Notes: Poem – Day 1 – Wrapped Refrain – “I’ll Pass” #amwriting #novembernotes #poetry


Today’s prompt song is “Almost Lover”by A Fine Frenzy. For me it was a song that was pretty much on repeat eight-years-ago or so. It’s a beautiful song, see music video below:

“Almost Lover” – A Fine Frenzy

Sail the words across my fair skin, 

The memories avail, and hurt within. 

Words can’t express heartbreak so strong, 

Words can’t make right, you did me wrong. 

If you weren’t interested, you should’ve said so first, 

If you were decent, pain wouldn’t have been a curse. 

—–

Almost lovers, the kind that hurt —

Woman the most; they’re the worst. 

Almost lovers, leading you on, 

Leading astray, in a sad song.

Don’t say you never knew, why the night ended tearful, 

You’ll never admit fault; you’ll say saw unclear. 

——

Tripped on a step, shocked at such eyes, 

Deep brown ocre, good-looks suprise. 

Not an old-man, but still too old —

For barely a woman, thoughts untold. 

She should’ve kept her distance — far away, turned around.

She shouldn’t have melted as wax, at your face proud. 

—–

Arrogantly you led her around, 

Stupidly, she tried to astound

Talking, fluttering lashes black, 

Someone should’ve gave her a smack. 

You were off limits, you should’ve have said, you knew but —

Didn’t care, liked attention, simple jerk, and man slut

—–

You hurt her greatly; her fault it —

Remains; for years cursed, her hurting;

For an apology that never —

Will come to her in forever.

Goodbye almost lover, no time to waste on you, 

Life is happening, she survived, made it through. 

——

Almost lovers, almost lovers, 

They do what they do, hurt, shove–

You into reality, so you

See they’re human, hurtful too.

Take off your blinders; modern charming has no class —

Sail the words of a liar fade; now really, “I’ll pass.”

#OctPoWriMo – Day 1: Time – Lunes – ” Fairytale Schemes” #amwriting #poetry


Day 1 Prompt: Time

Time is such a constant in our lives, racing the clock, wishing it would go faster or slower. Rarely do we get off the train of time and focus solely in the moment. What does time mean to you?

Write for ten minutes about an instant that time stood still, with as much detail as you can.

I’m not giving you ten-

Minutes you pirate

Saving time, so it won’t —

——–

Fly; pulling me in with —

Mouthwatering words, 

Delicacies discovered with lost boys. 

—-

Awaking, dreamscapes to handwrite on —

Slate grey walls

Spinning gold on my spinning-wheel. 

—–

New challenge, birds trill softly, 

Cinderella, Snow White

Rub Genie’s lamp, grant wishes. 

—–

Cast my mind from other, 

Issues; be Alice

Slipping down rabbit hole secure. 

——

Rabbit peering at his watch

He’s late and —

Time’s needed, succeeding, rebuilding. 

——

Growing pains, Belle taming beast. 

Spreading wings that —

Are clipped, don’t fly — learning. 

—–

Remember how it was to soar, 

Such memories of —

Before, such ugly stepsister problems. 

—–

Dreams unfurling, dancing in clouds, 

Dress pink, blue

Time scatters, no Prince here. 

——

Clicks, ticks, forces me to —

The edge and, 

Swimming through life as Crocodiles.

—–

To write is to hook, 

Live in more —

Than fairytales and breathe in;

—-

Crisp clean air, words trembling, 

Fierce-Bad rabbit, 

With adventureous schemes; shot down. 

—-

If elephants fly with their —

Ears flapping; I’ll 

Survive at father time’s leisure. 

—–

Around the bend, avoid wolves

Yet sleeping, awake —

No mild princess, time awaits.
