Good Advice for Prompt 65, Advice

I told you once
I’ll tell you twice
I’ll never give you
Good advice

I’ll just project
Myself herein
In your despair
My dreams begin

And if from gods
Are favours blessed
I’ll give you scraps
And take the rest

And if in this
Your life sustains
I’ll bleed it out
Take all remains

I told you once
I’ll tell you twice
I’ll never give you
Good advice

And if you take
My warning now
Through that I’ve caught you
Anyhow

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Nicely done Helen. We either heed advice or we ignore it I find, whether or not it is good or bad…..well done.

  2. This is awesome Helen the rhyme and flow makes it feel almost like a taunt!

    At least this narrator’s honest in zir proclamation that ze will never give good advice. Some people delude themselves into thinking that theirs is the only advice another should follow.
    My collaboration with the notorious Cheesemeister for this prompt is here.
