You (Free Write Friday Image Prompt)



were just too
for them to
imaginary,my foot,
sang songs to the moon
fought the shadows and
you had to go to another’s
beacuse I was stonger now
there were more you
to save.


So sometimes I just see a prompt I can’t pass up, and this was just one of them. Got me thinking about imaginary friends and, well, this is what I just wrote without editing. I urge you to check out Free Write Fridays and see if you can find anything to catch your pen. Might work on this poem a little later but, now now, it was fun just to write it out.

  10. I love the take on the prompt – an imaginary friend or early spirit guide?! Children are tuned in at universe level, pity we don’t remember this skill. Loved it. Simple. Effective. Touching.

    1. Well, thank you 🙂 It was the first thing that popped up in to my mind when I saw the image and what attracted me to the prompt!
