Problem

The writing prompt that inspired this piece was found here, on Peter Wyn Mosey’s website. Peter shares really effective, simple writing prompts so I really do suggest you pop on over and have a look!


The problem with you, is

That you won’t stop searching

For an answer that doesn’t exist

The problem with you, is

That you refuse to accept

The ending when you find it

The problem with you, is

You haven’t noticed

That you’re working in the dark.

The problem with me, is

That I love to watch you searching

The problem with me, is

That I settle for the boring ending

The problem with me, is

That I know you shouldn’t leave the light off

But the problem with us, is

That you never took the time

To make sure we had an ending
