Word Prompt: Sorrow

For careless days, laughter reigned

Curled on sofas glued to TVs

No one to see, nowhere to be

Twenty bucks in one pocket

Promises for the pimpled boy

Two cheese pies balanced on one palm.


When nights were lived like days

New alleys and tunnels at every turn

A risk worth the journey

Sweet apple shots fueled abandon

Arms spread wide to fly

Certain we’d conquer the world.


For hours of contemplation

Small pieces to fill the bigger whole

Insisting tomorrow would be grand

Impatient for real peace

Change was possible, inevitable

A magic crystal ball balanced in one palm.


About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
