"On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.
For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.
For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."

Today's prompt: REMEMBER

It's a new day
I am disengaging with my old self
It’s been a fun wild exciting ride.
It’s been a trying, heartbreaking, knock out climb.
Stop trying to fight the now

All the things I’ve needed, I have.
All I’ve ever wanted is here…

I need new eyes to see them.

I am Oedipus the King
Gouging my eyes out
With pins that hold up
My dead mother.


See with my heart
Love with my hands
Soothe with my words.
I remember too much of the past
I hold everyone accountable
For the things they no longer do
For the people they no longer are.

Forgetfullness – an amazing gift
A blessed curse
