Daily Prompt: Impulse

Broken Heart

I looked into your eyes and I knew
I shouldn’t do it but I had to
I should have waited
Thought it through
But I was under your spell
It’s like you knew
That if you waited I would fall so hard for you
And in the end you’d break my heart in two

Daily Prompt: Talking in Your Sleep

20140305-184437.jpg

The Daily Post: Have you ever eavesdropped on a conversation you weren’t supposed to? Tell us about a time when it was impossible not to overhear a conversation between people who didn’t know you were there. What was the conversation about? How did it make you feel?

Daily Prompt: We’ve Got the Beat

Have you ever played in a band? Tell us all about that experience of making music with friends. If you’ve never been in a band, imagine you’re forming a band with some good friends. What instrument do you play in the band and why? What sort of music will you play? – The Daily Post

Although I never played in a band, music used to be a big part of my life. From elementary school to college, singing was my passion. My dream was always to share my voice with the world through song. Singing gave me the power to share my feelings and evoke emotions in my audience. When I was on stage people felt my presence and listened to what I had to say. My music gave me a voice and made me feel special. 

Unfortunately I stopped singing during my second year in college. My dad told me that I had to grow up and realize that just because you love something doesn’t mean that you were necessarily meant to spend your life that way. 

20 years later, I now know that you don’t always have to be great at something  to continue doing it- sometimes just loving it is enough. When I stopped singing my passion died and I lost a big part of myself. 

I am now trying to reignite my passion and bring back my voice. Good or bad – I will learn to let the music play again!

Daily Prompt: Walking on the Moon

“What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?” –The Daily Post

Last year I challenged myself to face my fear of heights. A friend of mine invited me to join her and a small group of friends to experience a zip line and tree top adventure. Normally I would’ve said No immediately, but something inside made me say Maybe, then Maybe turned into Yes!

I won’t say that this experience was easy. It was scary as hell but I did it and when it was over I felt like I had accomplished something and I was proud of myself.

Stepping out of my comfort zone and taking that first leap of faith has given me a renewed sense of passion in life. It’s encouraged me to seek out activities that stretch me as a person.

Who knows, maybe I’ll walk on the Moon for real one day!

Daily Prompt: Tainted Love

Daily Prompt: Tainted Love

I see it in your eyes before you even say the words.

“I don’t love you.”

I hold my breath as tears well up in my eyes threatening to drown my soul.

“What did I do wrong,”I ask?

Nothing… I just don’t love you!

There they are, those words again that feel like a knife slicing through my heart.

“Did you ever love me,” I whisper? Not wanting to hear the answer.

“I don’t know” you reply, in a voice devoid of warmth or emotion.

My head is reeling as I look into the eyes of a person I no longer know, but thought I loved. A person I opened my heart to and shared myself with only to see a stranger walk away without a second glance…

Daily Prompt: Nothin’ But A Good Time

Daily Prompt: My Day

Sun filters through my window inviting me to wake

The sweet aroma of delicious-naughtiness motivates me to rise and begin my day

Blue skies,
Soft breezes,
Rollerskating
Anticipating…
Laughter fills the day!

As the sun sets the music of the night begins
Dancing, Singing,
Until peacefulness sets in again
