Music Prompt #36 “Atmosphere” by Joy Division – Finished?


You wanted to

I know you did

Walk away



I didn’t exist.

There’s pain in knowing

Forbidden love.

Not for you

Old lady

Walk your dog

Know your place

Your position.



What’s that?

You’ve had your day.

Go fishing,

Write up your recipes

Have a nap

Walk away

Forget what might be.

I’m an addiction


Are you insane?

Watch the sea roll in

As exciting as it gets

When age shuts you down

Can you feel?

Can you love?

Are you the walking dead?

Why did you wake?

One rainy Sunday morning

Snuggle with me?

Find out

There’s still a spark,

All’s not lost.

At the back fence

Watching sunsets

With that lyric in our heart

Reminding us

We are still here.

  1. “Tears, of course,” she said. “I am so happy you have the snuggles, the sunsets, the lyric in your heart. And the ability to get me all emotional every time.”

  2. Beautiful, Michael. Getting older doesn’t change what’s inside…though it can slow it down a bit. 🙂

    Yes …. I was reading the tags you chose to “place your post” …. resilience …. indeed …. the embracing of “truths” in realities …. it would be far easier for most, sometimes, if we could just stop resisting under whatever ridiculous and silly pretenses we “believe” to be right. Nature is nature …. and it runs through as from the first breath, until the last.

    Loved the tone and flow of this Michael 🙂
