Prompt 51 Complete Bafflement – Emotions


Why you?

Why me?

I ask myself this every day.

How did this happen?

What occurred to plunge me into this confusion?

This disbelief?

My emotions thrown into disarray.

What began in all innocence

Has blown out to a situation

Way beyond any expectation.

I thought I was beyond such things

My day long past

Content now in my world

No stresses, no responsibilities.

I recall your invitation

Would you mind?

Could we?

Ok why not.

Innocent enough.

The thrill of the chase

Just a game nothing more

All over by next week.

Then there was more

Another invite, more words

A question, then two.

Truths stated

Emotions peeked,

A miracle?


I’m too old?

Now I long for you

And still I ask

Why me?

Why you?
