Post 40 Bloggers Writing Prompt: Inner Conflict


Six months feels like so much longer;
Each day our love grows much stronger.
Already, we’ve had crosses to bear;
Already, it’s so much better to share.

I really love having him around;
Keeping my feet on the ground.
I feel guilty now needing my own space;
When I picture his sadly beautiful face.

So many years I’ve lived by myself;
Honestly thought I’d stay here on the shelf.
But lately there’ve been subtle hints,
About leaving more than footprints.

We’ve both been through this before;
We’ve both emerged battered and sore.
Inner conflict between heart and mind;
But I’ve never met a man so kind.

He is my future, of that I’m sure,
And he has a spare key to my front door.
Full time would be such a change of habit,
But I see happiness, should I just grab it?!



  1. I can completely associate with these feelings. I was hurt many times before I met Ross – not only by ex-partners but also by my father – so trying to trust a man was the hardest thing ever! Ross has persevered with me, been patient and understanding and I have learnt to trust again – and look where I am now! If they really love you, they will understand. Beautifully written.

  2. It’s funny but I know exactly how you feel. I moved in with my OH after 6 months, and at the time it was such a conflict within myself as I’d been hurt before and felt that I would be judged for letting myself jump in again so quickly. I’m so pleased that I did though – 6 years on and we’re married with two children. I think sometimes our hearts have a mind of their own and they sometimes deserve the chance to go for it. I hope things work out for you and you are happy. #Prose4T x
