Rainy Day Thinking

picture source:

I let you in without reserve, eagerly, with open arms,
shared my thoughts, my body, my passions, my time,
I blended my space with elements to your liking, for your comfort,
crafted meals and conversations, created variations and deviations,
all this I give out of love for you,
potentially, you can destroy me, will you?

This is 55 word piece offering, in memory of an old friend, Galen Hayes.  Now Joy at Verse Escape is our host, so if you want to participate, head on over there.


  1. We give that much of ourselves to someone, yes, they could destroy us.

  2. In a way, I suppose we are all held hostage by the ones we love. We give them so much power

  3. Yes, yes, yes. Except I always have reserve.

    That's lovely Shadow.

  4. I was thinking some of this myself the other day...and it was very much how I felt when I was younger. Now I wonder if the giving isn't its own reward, and any betrayal its own punishment for the betrayer...anyway, a most relatable and true 55. So glad to have you play,Shadow, and have a kickass weekend.
