So before

 I go today

I want you to know.

It’s been a struggle for me

To find the right words to express.

How much I care for you.

So many unsent text messages because I just didn’t know what you needed to hear.

And now there is still no words that feel good enough because you are too unique for simple words.

That won’t show you how much I care and that this isn’t just another friendship to me.

For I see you like family and you are important and I always want to check up on you and hope you well for I know you will do the same.

Daily Prompt: Complicated

It wasn’t always this complicated

Things used to be so simple and fun.

Now things are so complex that words and actions

Can’t seem to fix this problem the situation so unknown

It feels like a mystery no one  has the time to solve.

So intense the emotions of how we got here just sit around growing

In size, and the hope that things will get better is no where insight.

The fairytale with no great ending but sadness that is so overwhelming

The sadness and pain can be felt from miles away.

The broken heart can be heard breaking all over again and then the slowing

Of one’s heart  beats as the heart doesn’t heal because well its complicated at its best.
