Unclaimed desires. #tankaprose

Colleen’s syllabic challenge

Only we can truly know,

the things that taint/feed our souls.

Reena’s exploration challenge

the puzzle of life
paths painted by tradition
a key missing piece
for souls come in special shades
and lost dreams turn to nightmares

I catch a glimpse of a forgotten dream; of whom she was and who we could have been, ignoring why we couldn’t be, and riding the tides of reminiscence; to the barren shores of my regret.

A portal through time
to find that missing feeling
dreams not meant to be
for more I look, more I crave
till hope festers to dismay

Eugi’s weekly prompt

I chased her back to better days; of cherry blossoms and purple moons. And though shadows lay in wait; of toxic ways and seismic moods, it’s what I’d always wanted!

For perfection was a dream, that had become a nightmare.

Hello everyone, I hope you enjoy this post and visit the great prompts I tagged within in.

September is my favorite month of the year. It’s a time i do not let anything dumpen my mood. It’s also my birth month, so yeah that’s a factor too, lol.

Stay safe everyone, stay loving.
