Perfect Christmas Kiss

    i like peanut butter; you  prefer mayo

    i eat everything but beef; while you enjoy a meal of f steak

            And i like quiet dinner together but you said conversation is what makes it better

i hate cracking jokes but it is your life i guess

            i always ask for direction; finding your  way is your choice

            i like a walk in the mall;  you’d rather run and stroll              

                         while i’m piling on the comforter; you lay there bare in comfort

                         as i read poetry you’d rather watch T.V.

i can’t find you the perfect gift; you never like my choices

on Christmas eve i’d give you the one thing we always agreed upon

a perfect Christmas eve kiss.

Monday Morning Melts #6

Jade: Do you feel it? The beautiful lights, the easy smiles, and the hint of magic in the air that always makes the holiday season one to remember.

Instead of choosing from one of the classic Christmas songs, I’m offering lyrics this week from a song that’s a little quirkier. To everyone still scrambling for that perfect Christmas gift, I hope this song is a reminder that the perfect Christmas gift is something money can never buy.

Happy Holidays to all of you, my dear friends! I wish you all a season of contagious laughter, unconditional love, and magic to last a lifetime.

PROMPT: Humbug – Owl City

I’m ready to wrap that perfect Christmas gift
But I haven’t found it yet
‘Cause I don’t have a clue what to get you
So I’ll give you my heart, I hope it’ll do

Your Turn:

  1. Share a poem, story, or photo inspired by this week’s song-lyrics-prompt. You can share something you created that was inspired directly by the lyrics or you can share other pieces that coincidentally fit the prompt (for ex: an old piece of yours, or one of a beloved blogger – with permission).
  2. Linkback/create a pingback to this post. Here is a quick tutorial on how to do it.
  3. Tag your post with MondayMorningMelts, so we and  your co-bloggers will be able to read/see your take on the prompt. Here’s how you create tags.
  4. Most important of all, read and comment to your blogger friends (old and new found, we’ll never know).😉

There are no word limits and no restrictions except to stay true to the theme. Creating a brand new post in response to the prompt is also optional.

The goal isn’t to create new content, but rather to share pieces that melt the heart, tickle the soul, and brighten up a typically gloomy Monday. That’s why if you already have a piece that fits this week’s lyrics, or if you have a fellow blogger whose piece you want to share (with their permission), you are more than welcome to do so!

In Between

In Between

I am million miles away from home. The home where i grew up with. The distance is suffocating…deafening…exhilarating; but this is nothing compared to the distance we’ve created even if we’re not million miles apart; the distance between our families…our friends…our siblings…our in laws..our neighbors…and often times the distance between the very person we claimed we love the most. Yes! This is the distance that we cannot measure..we cannot touch…we cannot see…BUT we can always bridge the gap…find a way..open an avenue…and maybe, yes, just maybe see a clearer view…

 

Between heaven and earth;
a story is unearth.
Between past and present;
a sailing is sent.
Between here and there;
a distance is clear.
Between a moment and forever;
a struggle so clear.

Sometimes heaven and earth met;
when a story is broken and lit.
Sometimes past and present collide;
when the sailing subside.
Sometimes here and there is near;
when the view is clearer.
Sometimes a moment and forever is eternity;
when the struggles become infinity.

So move heaven and earth boldly;
for your story to be told oddly.
So hold the past and present sincerely;
for your sailing to be done completely.
So break the here and there completely;
for your distance to be moved effortlessly.
So create a moment and forever lovingly;
for your struggles to be over definitely.

Rosema: Most of the time, love is expressed and felt through physical intimacy. Touch. Kisses. Hugs. But how about loving someone from afar? How about loving someone you haven’t seen yet? How about falling for someone’s soul residing in a body thousand miles away from you? Will it be a gamble worth committing? Will it feel like a heart’s solitary suicide?

This week, let’s delve the idea of long distance love. (Which is now for me, the purest love of all).❤

“One Sweet Love” – Sara Bareilles

The earth that is the space between,
I’d banish it from under me to get to you.
Your unexpected love provides my solitary suicide
oh I wish I knew

P.S. Jade and Rose

I know this is too late… I am posting it anyway…

 

Turn the Table

Let’s reverse the plan

change the situation

let’s gain the upper hand

turn back time

to the day it started

day one of November notes.

This is also in conclusion to the challenge; and what better way to thank Sarah and Rosema for hosting this challenge than thru a short poetry like this.

Thank you to both of you for pushing my limits and making me go beyond my boundaries as a writer. The challenge has made me write themes that i thought i could never actually write.

Day 30 prompt:Turning Tables by Adelenovember-notes-4

Tonight

Tonight…

YOU AND I…

With the thoughts of tomorrow…

That may never actually come…

Monday Morning Melts 3

In response to Monday Morning Challenge hosted by Rosema of A Reading Writer and Jade M. Wong.

Monday Nov. 21: In Your Hands- Jason Mraz
But when you’re alone
You’re living in a world with only choices
And what I choose is you

Sleeping beauty 

Slept peacefully

For a century, or so

She happily dreamt

But then one day

A kiss to her lips 

Made her wake up

And that’s when reality blew up

Now it’s the same

The spell has been lifted

Our years of imagining

Are finally over

I chose you.

FUTURE PROMPTS

It came to our attention (thank you Sarah!) that we should reveal the prompts for the upcoming month to give all of you who would like to participate time to prepare your submissions. Here they are for the rest of November:

Monday Nov. 21: In Your Hands- Jason Mraz
But when you’re alone
You’re living in a world with only choices
And what I choose is you

Monday Nov. 28: As Long As You Love Me – Backstreet Boys
Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
