I said I wouldn’t leave you this time as I head off on my next adventure and so here we are with you in my bag. 

And a long walk ahead of us to a place that will hopefully be fun for the both of us, no worries I will look out for you as you will look out for me. 

Together we are comfortable and happy and I know as long as I have you to cuddle with and find new things to discover there will be nothing but good times when were together in the end.

Daily Prompt: Dim

The light in your eyes dimmed down as you realized what just became your life.

The fun that you desired just wasn’t worth it to be lead to this moment that made your heart drop.

You knew you weren’t going to make it out of this situation as the same person as you entered in.

You accepted only half what this meant and the other half you used to fuel you to make the best decision in the end.

The light in you was fighting with all its might just so that you could come back and be stronger than you ever thought possible.

Maybe tomorrow will be different and things will work out but right now you realize you have to fade into the background to wait until the timing is right and step out with all the hands in your hand.

Open

the window shades and let in the light because I’ve been lost in the dark for so long.

I know that I’ve been lost but, I didn’t want to be found because coming back to this place.

Brings nothing but pain and the light hurts my eyes for all around I see the truth and it’s nothing but ugly.

I’ve never wanted to run away so fast in my life, I don’t care if  I’m running blindly right now.

I just know that I have to get away and breath again and laugh until it hurts and just be in the moment.

I want to face it all but, at the same time I’ve come to learn that walking away is better option sometimes.

Daily Prompt: Premonition

I strong feeling that something was about to happen but, I just couldn’t figure it out.

All day I watched for the signs that something was about to happen and I just knew it wouldn’t be anything good. 

I held my breath when I saw him and that feeling rained down on me that it was about to happen and as I stood there frozen out of fear. 

It happened so fast that I thought I was seeing things but, then I heard the screams and clapping as you kneeled down in front of me. 

Asking me to spend the rest of my life with you.

In that moment I knew the fear was more of me thinking something bad was going to happen because good moments were so rare for me. 

I couldn’t have predicted this moment and yet I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Can You

feel me slipping away from it all 

One moment your laughing with me the next I’m gone. 

The smile you loved to see and the laugh you loved even more to hear fades away as if it never happened in the first place. 

Only you were the one that could hold on to me and than one day I just disappeared and you didn’t even notice because for so long you had been holding on. 

Until one day you let go to take a breather and then just like that I was gone.

I was falling so fast that even I didn’t see this coming until I hit the ground and the air left my body. 

Broken and alone I laid there hoping someone would find me soon for it was getting so cold down here. 

I know we all grow up and certain things get left behind but, I was really hoping I wouldn’t be one of those things.

Not

trying to be rude but, I just need to tell you the truth right now for I just can’t hold my tongue anymore. 

This is not working out for me and as I smile in your face well I truly die more inside than anything I’ve ever faced in my life. 

You are the bad to my good and I no longer want to be apart of your wrong. 

I feel so strong but, to be truthful I am a mess as I walk through these doors and I come undone because you are my worst nightmare. 

There is not one nice thing I can say about you right now and so I will let you have it all because well that’s just how I am now. 

I don’t have a care in the world that well I’m hurting your feelings but, the pain you have put me through just overrides the kindness in my heart and I just can’t stand to be weak anymore. 

I will be strong and I will stand strong and I won’t back down even if the outcome is not good. 

For I’ve not felt this so alive in over a year now and well I’m done and I just don’t know how to say my goodbye even though I happy that it will end soon. 

The tears that I’ve been holding back well they are flowing down my face faster than I can handle but I know this end is something that had to happen. 

I hope you accept my goodbye and as we both move on, I hope nothing but the best for you. 

But, I won’t be your fool anymore.

Daily Prompt: Imagination

My imagination drives me to a place that is more at peace than the reality life I live in each day.

I just wish for one moment that time would stop and I can enjoy things around me and when I’ve had my fill then time can speed up again.

I just want to imagine all the things that make this world beautiful be surrounding me in this moment that changes everything for me.

Maybe one day it will come true but, for now reality is where I am and some times I close my eyes and I see the world for what it truly is and my heart and mind are at peace again.
