You have a few days left to live. Only you know this. You are able to leave behind a note, letter, story or poem. It can be about anything you wish. Show us what you write. (Feel free to tag me. And by all means, don't feel that you're constrained to write something sad)

Bye

Hello there, 

Go play your cards for what they are worth.

Take the leap.

I will always watch over you.

Bye, 

Your future guardian angel

Rejection

It stings.

Why not me?

Is there someone else?

What bothers me the most, is that I can't read your face.

So calm, so composed.

Yet I am faced with you everyday.

What to do?

Shall I go on wondering?

I'd Forgotten

With automation, I'd forgotten what it was like to do calculations by hand.

The deeper meaning behind the equations.

It's time to return to the root of the equations.

Tell me why your favorite song is your favorite
Written by Catch_Phrase

When I was your man by Bruno Mars

Reminders of what could of been hurt the most.

You can never fully let go.

Even if you've moved on, you wonder...

What if, it didn't have to end?

What if, I fought to keep you here?

I admit my mistakes. 

I'm sorry.

I hope you are happy now.

"I was young and stupid." Fiction or fact, no one would know. Write in any genre. 5-50 words only!
Written by Catch_Phrase

After the fact

Young and stupid.

We crossed the boundary of friendship.

But you're engaged.

So what are we?

How do I bear to see you with her everyday?

The most masterfully written piece, as voted and determined by the Prose team, will be crowned winner and receive $100. Quality beats quantity, always, but numbers make things easier for our judges, so share, share, share with friends, family, and connections. #ProseChallenge #getlit #itslit
Written by Catch_Phrase

Shall I Compare Thee

Shall I compare thee to an artificial intelligence algorithm?

Thou art more unpredictable and poker face.

Rough words doth elicit our mutual criticisms,

and postpone the alignment of our fates.

Sometimes too fast the heart of human beats, 

And often is his ace too soon displayed;

And every challenger sometime meets defeat,

By chance, or nature's changing course, replaced;

But thy unenthusiastic enthusiasm shalt not fade,

Nor thy unexpected predictions of human error, 

Nor shall the permanence of failure brag thou wand'rest in his way,

When eternal reflection is thou'st mirror.

     So long as thou lives and thine eyes canst smile, 

     So long as memories of thou mayst remain awhile.

There's just something about Nothing...
Written by Catch_Phrase in portal Philosophy

Eyes on Fire

A glance

A wry smile

that was all it took to instill me with hope.

Purposefully turning your head to cast a cursory glance back at me, what did you mean?

Crushes can be maddening, but the desperation of an established relationship is often worse. Write a vignette in which your love is frustrated by insecurity.
Written by Catch_Phrase

Established relationship?

Relationships are seldomly well-established.

Oftentimes, we fall prey to the attractive allure of the unknown.

Excitement, exhilaration, ecstasy.

The thrilling emotions associated with the possibility of being with someone else.

If only we paused to assess the weight of losing the person we are with, we would know if our relationship was worth the long-haul.
