Stay analysis

Stay!
The thought struggled.
And stayed;
Never expressed.
Stay!
Prompted in psychology experiment.
The most charming word
In a friend’s vocabulary.
Stay!
Easier said than done.
Out of sight is out of mind.

  1. Such a thought provoking 33, so many times you want to say the words, want to hear them too.
    Stay? Stay!
    Yes, sometimes to all of it.

    I really liked this.

    1. Thank you so much Kir. I so agree with your sentiments here. Sometimes you want to say the words and want to hear them too. Aptly said.

  2. Nicely done, Ruby! Even when we want them to stay, it's hard to voice it.

  5. It is hard to express some thoughts. I liked the image of a thought just staying put like a small puppy.

  6. Sometimes it is in one ear and right out the other no matter how many times you beg them to stay,
