Are You Happy To See Me

A friend comes home unnoticed. Her teenage son is busy with his mobile legend while her daughter doesn’t even know she’s home. In jest, I told her “Get a puppy, or dogs. At least you’ll be comforted that there is someone who is always happy to see you.”

I don’t know why I said that.  I’m too insensitive I guess.  Truthfully, no matter what, there will always be someone who will need you, love you, or want you. It doesn’t matter in what order. And as time goes by, every passing year, the order changes, for humans I think.

I just can’t think of a right graphic for that quote, so I used my dogs. After all, there is no better way to express unconditional love than citing a dog’s love.  Well, just next to my  mom’s love of course.  Hey, I’m not saying my dogs are at par with her. Neither am I implying that I give more time to my dogs than her.  And I know I’m guilty because I always give my dogs a treat every time I arrived home. My mom seldom receive anything from me when I see her.  Inspite of that, I know she will always be someone who is happy to see me (just like them too) 🙂

Are You Happy To See Me?

Love and The Street Signs

love and the street signs, joys of joel poems, when is love best, beautiful love poem
Love and The Street Signs – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Wheels on the highway
I hear the song on the radio

I switch the channel
Don’t want to remember

Those times I’m driving
in the dark tunnel

Refusing to listen
But I’m still hearing

the music in the park
where I see you kissing him.

So I take a U-turn
when I see the yield sign

Did not bother
to wait for the green light

I learned a lesson
for overspeeding

The blind curve sign
that I keep ignoring

And when the cop
hand me the ticket

I realized
there’s always a limit

So I park a while
and learn to accept it

That Love is best
when it’s a two way street.

Typical

Typical – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Sun shines
rain drops

Blue clouds
on summertime

Flowers bloom
despite the gloom

Is it typical
or magical

When sun sets
with golden hues

Reminding you
tomorrow’s news

Will be
in a treasured chest

Of memories
you won’t forget.

And when he said
he’s leaving now

You realized
it’s typical

For sunrise
to say hello

and say goodbye
with purple glow.

 

 

Daily Prompt: Typical

Restart, The Write Way To Right A Resignation Letter

the write way to right a resignation letter, joys of joel blog writing, life quotes
Restart – The Write Way To Right A Resignation Letter – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

“Where do I begin,” (that famous line from a familiar song) to tell a story where I’ve been. Been somewhere, anywhere, nope, truthfully nowhere.

Now I don’t know how to start. They say time heals all wounds, and if missing something is a wound, and starting all over again is a form of healing then let me have a thousand scars for although I’m not a masochist, I welcome the pain of waiting. And if somehow one can’t understand what I’m conveying, it’s okay not to be understood once in a while. Why would I expect others to understand if I, myself don’t understand where I’ve been, eventhough I always claimed I know where I’m heading.

Subject verb agreement, punctuation errors and a lot of grammatical lapses. I am not an English writer and it does not pain me when I tender my resignation letter and realized that he’s not reading my letter. Yes, he is not hearing me, he is looking at my letter telling me how in the world can I write a resignation letter with misspelled words and grammatical lapses. That deceitful feeling of finally getting even by giving him a hard time deciphering what I meant when I said I’m leaving. Or is it just the real me when I blabber with incongruent statements because truthfully I am a weird eccentric person who is not good in saying goodbye.

So I closed the door and walked away…. But in no time I’m back in his arms,  restartng what could have been, what might have been, what should have been and all those in betweens.

Been There.  Done That.  How I wish I could truthfully say that. 🙂

Instagram and My Apple Juice

Instagram and My Apple Juice
Thanks to Instragram,
your life is juicier
than my apple juice.

 

I was supposed to write about illusion then I glanced at my apple juice. Time might be the culprit why I can’t write a long story, but it doesn’t mean I can’t sum it up by thinking about Instagram.

I never complained why my life isn’t a picture perfect kingdom because some fruits taught me wisdom. And call me crazy when it made me smile that some people’s lives are juicier than mine. 🙂

 

 Daily Prompt:   Illusion.
