‘This Idea’ Far from Home

Daily Prompt: Far from Home.   Tell us about the farthest you’ve ever traveled from home.Photographers, artists, poets: show us DISTANCE.

I look at you in so much envy still, this idea I still can’t grasp. Why can’t I be like others that have basked in your glory with rays of sunshine gleaming over their faces? The pain I get instead leaves me not wanting more, I flee from the this idea of what you are suppose to mean. I look at the mirror and I see no pain anymore but distance. I travel back in time hoping to find a small hope of you that is good not tragic. I feel so far from you as I keep spinning into the future. Progress has spanned me from you, yet I grab onto the idea that I will be close again.


Daily Prompt: Give me a stranger

I would want a stranger to be my biographer. Compared with a family member or close friend, the stranger would give you the raw description of who you really are and not who they know you to be. They wouldn’t be concerned with hurting your feelings or exaggerating your experiences. There would be no bias and only truth.
