Completely

Drained with nothing left to give at this point.

I’m fighting to make it to the finish line right now.

And all I want to do right now is curl up and sleep because it’s just not worth putting any more energy into the situation.

I know they want more from me but what can you do when you barely walking around on empty.

The number

Week 174 of Three Line Tales

three isn’t just a number to us it has meaning behind it as its the amount of days it took for you to work up the nerves to say something to me.

It’s the amount of times we went out before you told me that seeing other people wouldn’t be necessary anymore for you were the only one worthy of my time.

You won’t over corky when you said it for you always had good intentions and still to this day the number 3 is lucky to us.

Letting

go of the past again as I stubble a pond some old notes.

And for a second it feels as if I’m back in that moment and for a second I feel those emotions again.

And soon the note is falling to the ground and I don’t want to pick up again.

But I do and soon it is ripped up and is now in pieces and as I place them all in the trash.

It feels like I’ve been thrown back into the present and I’m feeling good for I know what’s in the past can’t get to me anymore.

For in the present I am and there is no going back for those moments have expired.

I have no desire to think of what if’s for I have moved forward in my life and where there used to be no answers and just questions.

Is now I have answers and still questions to ask but the peace that I longed for is more present than before.

TRUSTING

Gravity in this moment and hoping it won’t let me fall

but if it does I will just get back up and try again.

For it is not time to give up and move on without accomplishing the things I have started now not next week but this week.

I know that the end of the month is coming to an end soon so it is time to get a move on it and do what I know what I need to do and make the most of it too.

Exhausted

by the things that are unfolding around me like night and day.

I know that I should want to do something about it but the truth is I have no fight left in me.

I’m just here to fill the time and the bank account because life seems to come with less free things and everything just seems to add up in the end.

I know that a lot is going right now but, I just need to get away and feel the air and heat and not worry about the time or energy it will take to get up and get around.

It’s time to take care of the things that will make me better and happier in the end.

Time to make the most out of the time that is given to me starting with not just looking out this window but being on the other side and not looking in but walking away and looking at all the things around me while the sun is still out.
