Happy Thursday Novas! I wanted to write about today’s daily prompt word so you will be receiving the daily prompt today and the 5 sentence story tomorrow! Today’s post will be a short poem.
Daily Post Topic: Lollipop
Till my lungs collapse, I’m living this horrid dream,
What once possessed such promise, was nothing more than a gleam,
The prospects and allowances that were once to be,
Transformed and beguiled, a young, pretentious me.
I opened up to life, as a church will open it’s doors,
They admired and beheld, my graciousness once stored,
Giving to the world and never asking for keeps,
Meeting my best friend Arielle, who seemed just as sweet.
We conquered school together, leaving hearts at every turn,
Arielle located my weakness, making sure I was to burn,
Arielle came into my life, like a whirlwind of friend,
The sweetest smile you’d ever seen; the deadliest of weapons,
She sucked all of the life, out of a grateful soul,
Her body wrapped in poison; “I’m your friend” she told,
Silently my spirit drained, a most decrepit health,
Making me her lollipop, my friends, my heart, my wealth,
Blindly I allowed her to take what she would pursue,
Take care with whom you allow in your life; an unrecognizable you.
