Metastasi

Me, constant secret companion

Ever growing, spreading within

Taking over like a black plague

Adhering to your soft cells

Seeping through all organs

Ticking bomb like

Always there

Shading

In.

Couch.

He had been in the house for as long as anyone could remember. Witnessed three proposals, many a stolen moments of lust, one birth, two deaths numerous arguments and one nasty case of a fist fight.

Yes you could say he was part of the furniture. He was at home in every room and comfortable with each new generation. So it was rather a shock to overhear them speaking of him in the past tense. He’d done well, had a good run, but now he had outlived his use , past his best. However nicely it was couched he was unsettled by this line of talk.

To his utter shock he found himself out in the garden under the apple tree by the dustbins. It wasn’t too bad it was Summer and the cat and the dog were happy to join him in the shade.

It was the third day that he’d been out there when the young couple came over to talk to him they spoke in glowing terms about him. Then they went up to the house and spoke in enthusiastic terms to his latest couple who seemed very happy to meet the young couple.

Later that day he was heaved up into a red van and driven a short distance to the shops. He spent the night in the van…not happy in the dark not even a dog or cat for company.

In the morning he was move into a bright and busy place with coffee tables, music , wooden floors and lots of people.

“I love him” , he heard the young woman say to her partner “the perfect center piece for our retro café, yup the perfect couch.”

Once again he was in the thick of it part of bustling café / bar life.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 2/19 : Celestial.

Celestial of the stars, we are and eventually to the stars we will return. I find this is such a wonderful and calming thought. I have always yearned to travel the stars. Space and all it entails have always been my dream. Well it will not be my destiny, I was born too early. So I take comfort in the fact that when I die I shall return to the stars and be celestial. That’s the explanation now here is an Acrostic Nonet.

Celestial of the stars we are

Eternal, boundless essence star

Life for us is but a blink

Earthbound yet on the brink

Straining to venture

To our true home

In pure hope

Almost

Life.

This week our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cele-.” Find a word that starts with or contains “cele” and use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 22/18

This is my entry for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

#SoCs

Flowery words can brighten any situation but have they any substance.

I bought you a bunch of flowers

The label said they had special powers.

But what was I to do

I thought the label was true.

Sadly the special flowers died

You were so upset you cried!

I went to the market and bought a pound of flour.

I set to work and baked a cake within an hour.

It was the bestest cake you’ve ever seen.

It cheered you up like a dream.

The cake was made from magic flour.

To hell with Magic Power Flowers!

Picture perfect she smiled

I was totally beguiled

Convinced by her excitement

Taking up the pavement

Under her spell completely

Reeling at her beauty sweetly

Enchanted,caught picture perfect.
