via Daily Prompt: Study


He sat in the study
Waiting for the call
He knew she wasn’t coming back
There was no chance​ at all.

He tried not to lose it
Was trying not to cry
But, knew he couldn’t trust her
He knew that she would lie.

She asked him for some money
What was this all about?
What was she really up to?
So hard to figure out.

Told her that she needed
To stop wasting so much time
To try to get her life on track
To get herself in line.

He made her an offer
Come back, I’ll pay for school
I’ll get you an apartment
But, she was such a fool.

He told her that he loved her
Begged her to reconsider
But, she was just too angry
Too resentful and so bitter.

She had all the answers
She simply wouldn’t listen
No matter what he did or said
Knew she’d end up in prison.

After hanging up the phone
He grabbed his chest in pain
His heart was truly broken
He’d never speak to her again.

She spilled her cup of coffee
Across the table top
It went all over everything
Almost landed in her lap.

I was sitting at my table
Down went her broken cup
It splattered nearly everywhere
I helped her clean it up.

I called out to the barista
For a towel and a wet mop
I began to try and help her
As I cleaned she said, please stop.

I assured her not to worry
It was just an accident
We’ll clean it up in no time
A mere unfortunate incident.

I couldn’t help but notice
She was prettier than I thought
I asked what she was drinking
A Macchiato cold, or hot?

I handed her a coffee
She said, ”Thank you”, then she smiled
I asked if I could join her
She was leaving in a while.

Found out that she was working
At the museum round the corner
She was pleasant and easy going
Gave me her number, said to call her.

I asked her out for dinner
To an Italian restaurant
I was anxious, somewhat nervous
She walked in so nonchalant.

She looked stunning,​ really pretty
Didn’t think I stood a chance
She was everything I dreamed of
How I hoped we’d found romance.

Can’t believe that she was into
This old weathered casanova
Hope’d she fall in love with me
Before the night was over.

Got to know each other better
We got married one year later
She still works at the museum
And has become their new curator.

via Daily Prompt: Entertain


You may never understand
Her need to entertain
It’s become a driving force
Kind of odd, a little strange.

She has fancy napkins
Candlesticks​ and tablecloths
She prepares your coffee
Always, with a bit of froth.

Takes it to the limit
Pure silver and fine china
Breakfast,​ snacks or salad
She says it doesn’t matter.

She’ll prepare your Cheerios
In a Royal Dalton serving bowl
Her cutlery impressive
Made of silver, and of gold.

Every table setting
Will exceed your expectations
Martha Stewart’s recipes
Give her pause ​and pure elation.

Setting up and serving
It’s all in the presentation
She loves to set the table
A masterpiece, her own creation.

Upscale, somewhat pretentious
She’ll take off her jeans and sweater.
She’ll serve you in her evening gown
The more elaborate, the better.

via Daily Prompt: Static


He’s creating static,
Causing irreversible harm
He’s a racist hypocrite
Who will sound the alarm?

Misogyny and bias
Deep within his core
Promoting hate and prejudice
What are we waiting for?

We must stand together
Fight for liberty
He wants to divide us
He’s destroying this country.

So vile and so despicable
Contempt for women’s right’s
Hate and greed his mantra
Spouting cruelty and spite.

No regard for justice
Bypasses every law
Thinks they don’t pertain to him
He’s the president, after all.

Collusion and emoluments
He’s so shallow, so artificial
How long can this go on
Before demanding​ his dismissal?

Arrogant and pompous
Racial slurs and condemnation
What’s stopping his impeachment
For money laundering and tax evasion?

Stand up and be counted
He has to be removed
The highest office in this nation
Should not be held, by a buffoon.

Night has fallen….

He opens his eyes
Now out on patrol
Checks out familiar places
He knows just where to go.

His eyes of green reflected,
As a car comes round the corner
He ducks down and turns away
Fearful … he moves over.

Cabbage leaves, carrot peels
He’s hit the mother load
He eats his fill, then heads back home
Afraid someone will see him.

His furry face, his claws so sharp
He moves closer​ to the ground
Not wanting to be harmed
He cannot make a sound.

Suddenly he looks up
A dog barks in the distance
He has to hurry now
He has to pay attention.

JusJoJan Prompt

So much aggravation
To put up with every day
Tons of senseless chatter
Getting in the way.

Why not mind your business?
Clean your own backyard
Stop putting your two cents in
Stop trying so damn hard.

To sabotage your neighbor
You bring shame upon your own
While you were busy blaming
While you were throwing stones.

Find your inspiration
Don’t let them bring you down
Don’t let their need to aggravate
Turn your world upside​ down.

Stand for peace and honor
Let your voice be heard
Stop the spread of prejudice
By having the last word.

via Daily Prompt: Evoke


Your name evokes an image
I wish I could wipe clean
Wish I could erase the memories
Wish you were just a dream.

Running from the nightmare
That you helped to create
I thought that I had fallen for
And found my true soul mate.

But, the devil wears disguises
Blonde hair and bright blue eyes
She can get inside you
She can make you cry.

The candlelight,​ the music
Helps to lure the innocent
Before you even know it
You’re a willing participant.

My heart is truly broken
I can’t get over you
I wish I had the answer
And knew just what to do.

Maybe I should see a doctor
Ask for a lobotomy
Try to stop the pain and hurt
So deep inside of me.
