She quicken her typing to get it all done in time.

Without a minute to spare she hit the submit button.

And begun to relax and it sent her an email that it was successfully delivered.

How could

I know what was on your mind

as you stood there waiting for me to make the first move this time.

I just stared and wished I could make the first move but for some reason I was stuck to this spot.

Watching you watching me, I felt like time had stopped for you and me because their was nothing in this room that could get in my way.

As I finally made my move, so did you and we met up in the middle of the room with the music playing around us and the chatter in the background.

As friends meet up together after such a long time

with nothing but smiles all around I realize tonight is not just special for us but for everyone who has come out tonight.

This night will not end just happily for us but for others as well, and I say that’s truly the little joys of life.

Daily Prompt: Center

I walk across the center of the stage and I shake your hand and I take my diploma

leaving behind years of studying and designing projects.

To been thrown out into the real world and to be rejected at every corner

and maybe in a way it was a good thing.

For I found my true purpose and I found my way to God,  the path I walk on now is very much unknown to me.

I know my passions and talents and where I will end up is still unknown to me but I have not ever felt so alive than I do now.

I work and I smile at everyone and I don’t think back on the things that didn’t work out for and I’m slowly not thinking about the people who were in my past.

Somethings are best left in the past and now it’s time to move on to my present which sometimes feels kind of lonely but I’ve grown more now with the time I have on my own.

I wish sometimes to be apart of the center of your life but I understand that the center of your life isn’t as wide as it used to be and now only a few stand still and wait to greet you.

I didn’t

see this life lesson coming as I lay awake in  my bed at 3 in the morning.

Every room in my house quiet as everyone sleeps so peacefully.

Except for me, whose wide awake with so much to say.

Yet, craving to go back to sleep .

But no matter how many times I try to drift back to sleep.

Nothing happens and soon my eyes are open and I’m staring into the darkness.

So I just decided to write and here I am writing.

With tiredness coming quick to my eyes I breathe a sigh of relief as I drift back to sleep again.

Daily Prompt: Jiggle

The thoughts in my head are all jiggling around

as it’s been a long day.

I can’t seem to focus on anything as sleep calls my name

I could sleep for days and not worry about what I may be missing out on.

Because in all truth I don’t have much going for me and the things I do have going for me

I cherish with my heart, soul, and body.

I know I can’t think about the things I don’t have for its out of my control and I’m just too tired.

I take all the things I have and I’m grateful but I know when my thoughts become less scrambled.

Things will look different from the perspective of a clear alert mind instead of one that is off asleep right now.
