Daily Prompt: Circle

I’m living this life and lately it feels like I’m walking around in circles

and the hope of getting anything done just doesn’t seem possible.

I feel stuck and even if I wanted to move forward it’s like I’m sinking in quicksand

and I don’t have the time or energy to get myself out.

I’m stuck and the path one would have to take and help me seems to be not the safest one and so I wait here hoping it won’t be more than one hour before I find my way again.

I’m struggling to hold on and the mountain I have to climb to find the answers to my life now is so hard and high that it will take some time  before I am safe and above all that is going on right now.

Daily Prompt: Witty

You were always funny when it came to making someone else laugh

but you lack of confident sometimes made the haste jokes about yourself not so funny.

But, when you were in a good mood it always so freeing to be around you.

Everyone laughing and enjoying themselves every time we got together

You were always in the center of someone having a good time and you made sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

They said you could have been a comedian but you choose your love for music and used your voice to reach everyone in a different way.

And until this day I’m happy and proud you choose the path you did and now it’s even great to see your face once again and hear your laugh that lights up a room.

I see you

I see you and everything that you are going through

my hand is reaching out to help you.

I know everyone seems to be far away from caring about you but, our hearts and hands are closer than you know.

If only you would stop for a moment and look around and notice that not only was I always there for you.

I always gave you the space you needed, so that when you were ready I’d step back in and save you from anything.

My last breath would be for you and anything else you needed I’d make sure you had for no sacrifice I could make for you would be too much or too great.

Daily Prompt: Launch

She started to think that maybe everything that had gone wrong

had been her fate because she had done everything she could do.

Her words were let out before she was ready to say them.

They launched across the room and landing into your ears as you heard everything

she was saying about you.

You don’t want to get on the same path as her as she continues to say such things and I’m sucked for she seemed like your biggest supporter.

But, now she launch nothing but a nasty war on you and you don’t deserve the plan she is causing.

Reaching up for sky as I feel the breeze blow all around me as the sun goes down and I truly breathe for the first time.

For the heat has been unbearable all day and I just needed a moment when things were simple and cool again.

I need a nice fall day to cool me through my day and let me feel good not just during the day but at night too.

Daily Prompt: Coincidence

The moment I met you felt like fate

for everything I could possibly want or need just fell into place.

There are moments of struggle but as I work through it, it always works out in the end

Your voice, your comfort it gives me strength in times when I feel like things can’t get any better.

I have you to fall back on but I know your someone who will be around when the times are good as they are bad.

You are my beginning and my ending and my fate with you is worth more than anything this world could offer me.
