Byron Quote

Of all the horrid, hideous notes of woe,
Sadder than owl-songs or the midnight blast,
Is that portentous phrase, “I told you so,”
Utter’d by friends, those prophets of the past,
who, ‘stead of saying what you now should do,
Own they foresaw that you would fall at last…

-Byron: Don Juan. Canto xiv. St. 50

You (Free Write Friday Image Prompt)

You

You

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