up in a space where all my happiness is locked behind another door and all the creativity is locked behind another door.

This space I am is nothing but dark and the answers to when will everything great come back is just echoing around me but there is no hope I’ll get the answer soon.

My words are gone and maybe they will be forgotten too because I can’t seem to get out of this place.

I want to fight to get to the place that the sun will shine down on me and I will be at peace but, sometimes all the good has to go way and I have to sit in the dark to realize all that I stand for.

Because, I am something worth fighting for and even though things are not looking up that is not a reason to give up.

The step that I am on now is rest and to stop over giving what you do not have left to give.

I am on empty and there is not much more I can offer out to those who have taken it all because no one else is as willing or able to give so much.

I am not moving forward at the moment for I am resting and I am centering myself back to who I was before and maybe I will have become so much more when this process is done and over.

I know

this is not the plan we had in mind but, let’s not let these little bumps in the night.

Push us away from our dreams for we know better days are coming.

The peace on your face as I watch you sleep is how I want to see you everyday but, I know things get thrown at us even when we don’t expect it.

I know your day will be long and hard and so I know just a little act of love with cheer you up.

I know that those things sometimes shake you up and sometimes you can’t just let them go.

But, I’m here so you can talk them out and let them go and let me carry you when you get too weak.

I let it float up high in the sky that night in the hopes that this love would last for a long time.

I knew this night would be so romantic and sweet for you and me and I would treasure it with all the other happy memories.

Your smile was so bright and lovely that night, I’ll never forget how happy you looked.

My heart!



I wonder

if you remember me to this day like you said you would and if I still flash in your mind from time to time.

Do the memories of me bring on sadness and regret or just the joy we experience in the time we knew each other.

I know the memories come and go only when my mind has the time to slow down from the busy life that I am living.

Only in these times when my mind sees something that used to be apart of our daily routine than to I think of you.

The past that only pops up when the stress is fading away and some of the better moments in my life comes back to me and always puts a smile on my face.
