A poetic duet written by Hasty Words and Twindaddy as party of Hasty’s 1 year blogoversary!
We’ve been talking forever
The time has come
We’ll soon be face to face
I’m coming undone
My pulse quickens
My heartbeat erratic
Butterflies in my stomach
I begin to pace
I need to breathe
I need to think
I’ve shackled my heart and tossed the key
It keeps leading me straight to misery
My brain now refuses to let it drive
It thinks we’re quite lucky to be alive

When you went away, I had so much to say
Why did my tongue tie in
a knot until you were away?
Then the thoughts poured through
as I asked myself
what on earth is wrong with you..(me)?
I feel that you (and I ) had the chance to dance and
I didn’t take that chance to dance
and we will never have that chance again,
You are the one that got away…
The one where our timing was not quite right
as we kissed goodnight
we both felt the pain
as we knew
that we would never speak again.
Surely (yes, I just called you Shirley) everyone has heard the expression “there’s a thin line between love and hate,” right? I have never understood this expression. Well, not until recently anyhow. I mean, love and hate are two opposite extremes, yes? Love and hate are about as alike as Democrats and Republicans. Left and right. Up and down. Catholic and Muslim. Black and white. Cats and dogs. You get the point, right? They’re opposites. Good. Moving on.
I’ve taken a break from the Daily Prompts for a few days because, honestly, I’ve been in a bit of a funk and haven’t been inspired by them. Although Sunday’s was interesting and I may go back and do it. I just didn’t have a chance to do any blogging on Sunday. I feel especially bad for not doing it since I found out that my buddy Melanie suggested the topic. Shame on me. Bad form.
*sighs* Moving on…
