Not Today

Sunset in Jimei

The bottle will remain unopened.

That pack of cigarettes will stay unsmoked.

Those cheesecakes calling me as I walk past the bakery will be ignored.

And the backups won’t be hearing from me anytime soon.

For as long as there’s a teeny bit of will left in me…

You’re not winning again.

Not today.


Be strong. You are loved. ♥️


Daily Prompt: Tame 

I grow wild, 

Undaunted by the dangers, 

Hidden and conspicuous, 

Eager to try everything 

No matter the cost. 

And I try to stop, 

But I can’t help it. 

So tame me. 

Rein me in. 

Save me 

From myself.
