Daily Prompt: Inscrutable

When I walked into that room that day I didn’t think I would have an instant connection to you.

The way I felt it was unexplainable for me especially since I didn’t know who you were and what these feeling really meant.

You smiled at me like you knew what I was feeling and it made me feel comfortable but at the same time so confused.

I didn’t get to talk to you at first for I was there to focus on other things than the boy that sparked my attention.

The day seemed to go on and on as I thought of ways to say hi to you, but in the end you got up and beat me to punch and said hello.

From then on I’m not sure how to explain what felt like the missing pieces coming together and I could physically feel my life shift in a new direction and I didn’t want or cared to doubt or worry about the outcome.

For the first time in a long time I felt peaceful and at home and there was no way I was going to look back.

When looking forward was so much more than I could ever have daydreamed up, it was like I was finally living and breathing the air I needed to survive with an actual geniue smile on my face.

I see you

I hear you

Crying out

For someone, anyone to just hear you.

You want to be rescued from the pain that your hiding behind those eyes.

You want to be seen as good but, your past is so dark that you don’t know how to embrace the light that is coming into your present.

You want to be seen as the person who is now good and has been forgiven for the his past and now is living in the moment that can change everything.

Your heart just wants to be loved and accepted because well life can get lonely sometimes and you don’t really know whose apart of that life anymore.

You trying so hard to look forward but, the good times of the past keep flashing before your eyes.

And you begin to wonder what life would have been like things had turned out a different way.

But, you begin to realize that every struggle that you had come across was a blessing for your life is where it needs to be right now.

You feel happy and satisfied and even though most days are tough, you continue to get up and be strong and motivated to do what needs to get down because you want to be here when something new comes along.

Denial

I could deny that I don’t feel like there was so much more that I needed to say before you closed your eyes and let everything go.

I could have told you the truth and maybe then we both wouldn’t be standing on two different tracks but standing together.

Maybe I wouldn’t be so sad and you wouldn’t be so mad and confused and all the answers we both needed to hear wouldn’t still be mystery to us now.

Maybe your smile would be shining so bright right now instead all I see is a frown on your face.

And maybe seeing you know surround by the people who always have your back would make me happy because, I could just walk over and join you and spend the night laughing so hard that tears comes to my eyes.

You held so much apart of my life that now it just feels like a puzzle that will always be missing the pieces that make it come together.

If only I had the courage to tell you the truth and bring us back together and be as close as we used to be.

What tore us

apart doesn’t seem to matter anymore as I’m drawn to you tonight.

You smile and I smile and all the things that hurt me and that hurt you are all in the past and now that time has healed those wounds.

Maybe now we can start something new and get to know each other all over again as we have both grown over the years.

Were not the kids we used to be and now talking just seems so much easier and we laugh about the things in the past that seemed like a big deal at the time.

You lean on me as I lean on you and we both realize that there was so much we had been missing out on in each other life. 

We both felt like we needed more out of the life we had and just needed someone new to help us push past the borders in our life. 

And move into a new space and see what life takes us outside of the box we had grown so comfortable in. 

You became so much more than I thought was possible in my life and everyday I made sure I spent time with you and didn’t want to take you for granted again. 

For I didn’t know if this would be my last chance with you but, I hoped that we would build a strong enough bridge to hold us together and that we would not ever have to worry about not being in each other lives. 

We made plans and follow through with them and we made sure we didn’t get lost in each other. 

But, that we helped each other reach a goal each day or week because we didn’t want to resent one another and we wanted to be the best at what we loved and to know that the fire that burns in both of us is still going strong. 

I believe in you and you believe in me and at the end of the day we will always have each others back until the day we die

Bright and early we take a ride to round-up all the cattle and move them to the south side of the farm, no I don’t enjoy these bright and early mornings but it’s just the way life is. 

I get up early every other day with my brothers and we work around the ranch until it’s all done and we always find a moment to laugh and have a good time. 

We appreciate the things that were given to us and we try our hardest to work hard to keep the ranch a float, we do all we can and well this year has been hard but we wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

I’m sorry

that I wasn’t worthy of your time 

and that even though I was always around I wasn’t counted as someone who was there for you during the tough times in your life.

I wonder now why I felt like I let you down when I was there fighting to keep you safe even when you didn’t think you deserved to be saved. 

You were apart of my growth as I found myself and in the end you just didn’t seem to care about all that we had done together to make it out of the darkness of our lives. 

I helped keep you up when you couldn’t walk and go through the light for you knew all that you had done was not hidden away but out front where everyone could see. 

I stood there handing your hand and comforting you so that there was not a moment that you felt alone and heart-broken. 

Your pain was my pain and now it’s like, I was invisible the whole time and every moment that I experienced was not true as you removed me from your life. 

You said I was  there but what I did was not enough and the one’s that were around only on your good days were the ones you choose over me and the day I walked away. 

I felt so bad for you for when you expected them to be there for you and the one’s that would try for a while will eventually leave too and when you realize  I’m gone.

I won’t come back even if you beg for my forgiveness, for I will forgive but I will move on for I feel like once you’ve burned me the possibility of you ever been trusted again is just out of the question.

For I will always  know what you did and that in the end tells me it’s time to just let you go for good.

It’s cold out here today but, I just needed a moment to myself and standing out in front of the ocean just always calms me. 

My life lately seems like the rough tides that are coming in and no matter how much I try to deal with everything and try to be the bigger person some how it always comes back to knock me down. 

I can’t let you drag me down and around like those rough waves would do if I try to go out there right now. I won’t be ignored and knocked down when I  decide to stand up for myself and live a calmer path.
