I’m hiding away

From it all for  I just need a place

to escape.

And so here I am, lost in this book and the things

running through my mind and I don’t seem to sense anymore.

I’m hiding away from it all, but soon I’ll be done

With the books and then what do I do then

Besides face the things I’m hiding from in

The first place.

Daily Prompt: Stairway

I go up you everyday

One step at a time and

Then I come back down

One step at a time.

I don’t think much about you

Stairway even though I need you

Day and night.

But I’m grateful you were built and thought of

Or I wouldn’t be able to rely on you each and every day.

Daily Prompt: Curve

Your curves are so Devine

Like candy your addictive.

One look at you and the fantasy

Begins,like candy your sweet.

Like licorice, Swedish fish, peach rings etc.

You’re a craving that can’t be solved with just

One bite, because one bite is how it starts with

you.

My favorite song of the day

(Sometimes life deals me lemons, and I just need a song to bring me away from those worries. And just sit there in the moment and listen to the words that can heal me or just make me feel like I’m not alone in these feeling.) This song just speaks to me today  and I felt it would be nice to share it with you all that read this blog.

Grateful sung by: Rita Ora, featured on Beyond the Lights

There were a lot of tears I had to cry through
A lot of battles left me battered and bruised
Now I was shattered to have my heart ripped in two
I was broken, I was broken,
There were a lot of times I stumbled and crushed
When I was only years down to my last chance
So many times when I was so convinced that
I was over, I was over
But I had to fall yeah
To rise above it all

I’m grateful for the star
Made me appreciate the sun
I’m grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I’m grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I’m thankful for all my scars
‘Cause they only made my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

I was thinking I was trying to end out
From all the pain that was weighing me down
I pulled it together and I pulled myself out
Learned a lesson, learned a lesson
That there’s a life you gotta go through hell, yes
But that’s what got me strong, I got no regrets
And I’ve got only love, got no bitterness
I count my blessings, count my blessings, yeah
I’m proud of every tear, ’cause they got me here

I’m grateful for the star
Made me appreciate the sun
I’m grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I’m grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I’m thankful for all my scars
‘Cause they only made my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

There is nothing I would change,
Not even one mistake I made
I got lost, found myself, found my way
I’m grateful for the star
Made me appreciate the sun
I’m grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I’m grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I’m thankful for all my scars
‘Cause they only made my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

You know that I’m grateful,
You know that I care
No time for the wrong ones,
I’ll always be there
Grateful
Grateful, grateful
I’m grateful
Grateful, grateful
Oh, I am
Grateful
Oh, I am grateful

Daily Prompt:Solitude

Sometimes I wonder what my heart is really trying to tell

me when it feels something so strong, but my mind can’t seem.

To understand what is happening, when it all happens so quick.

If only I knew how my heart worked maybe than I  wouldn’t

be alone today.

Looking at the rain that keeps me inside and away from the things

I’m trying to avoid in the first place, becomes my reason I can’t come

out today.

But I can’t hide for long, for I know the truth will come out soon and

apart of me wants to  live in this moment forever.

For the peace of being alone is relaxing and it lets you be carefree, and

one with yourself as your problems fade away and solitude becomes your

new meditation.

Daily Prompt: Mask

Sometimes I hide behind a mask

to get away from who I’m meant

to be.

If only you could see me for who I am and just maybe the mask could go away.

I love who I’ve become and as time goes by, I wish you could love this person too.

Because I’m not going anywhere as I’m who I’m meant to be.

So please accept me without the mask and love me for who I am.

Sometimes I won’t be easy to get along with but I know who I am.

I’m like a star in the night sky, I will always shine bright and guide you home.

So please accept my mask as acknowledgment that I don’t want to hide anymore.

What am I fighting

For as I stand still here  

and look at you on this cold morning

and I wonder if only I had walked away.

Would I be such a mess with so many thoughts

flying through my mind at lighten speed.

Nothing is clean and I can’t grasp one thought

for my brain is starting to hurt as I fall down

and try to find comfort in this all.

Too much to handle and so lay here and stare

at nothing ,and I wish if only I had stopped when

the one and only thought popped into my mind

that night.

That changed everything and now here

I am pouring it all out and you stand there frozen

in time with nothing to say, and what good does that do

for me.

So I try to scream loud enough for you to wake up from this

state.

But instead all I do is break you apart into tiny little pieces as

you explode right in front of me and every piece of you I loved

comes flying at me.

And then it all becomes too much and I combust

Into tiny pieces and I am no more, like you.

But, it’s all just a dream and soon I will wake from this

nightmare of my truth, my fears.
