I thought

I knew what I needed and the answer to my question just seemed to fall into place.

It felt right and peaceful

But, over time it all came so clear that this just wasn’t the answer I needed or wanted.

Too much pain and too much time seemed to be wasted here and I just couldn’t accept that this was my life.

The answers that I now seek to seem so lost and not coming anytime soon and I guess I have to accept that and expect something else to happen.

The worst moments just don’t seem to be getting any better for me right now, It’s like one kick just follows another.

Until I’m face down in the dirt and there always no one to lean out a hand and help me back up.

For they are on the ground taking their own kicks from the people who are always cruel and seem to have no regards for anyone but themselves.

Daily Prompt: Authentic

The letter said it was by you but the words just didn’t seem like something you would say and so I doubted it.

And when I mention the letter to you, you acted like you had no clue what I was talking about.

Like writing a letter to me just would be pointless and so I let it go, knowing then those words were not yours and I didn’t know if I wanted to know who truly wrote them.

Because that would prove to me that you weren’t the one I needed to be around right now.

Daily Prompt: Glimmer

The faint light was coming through the window today as I sat inside knowing I wasn’t going out.

I said my peace and did what I had to do but, for now, I was going to rest and not think about much.

As my days became different and light again, nothing was holding me down any more the faint light was the sign I had been looking for all this time.

Now the faint happiness that I felt that day was pleasant and I hope it would last longer than the time I have off now.

I don’t want

much just some of your time for I know that we are both very busy. 

And these times together are precious and right now I need them more than before, for I see what my future will hold. 

I know that it won’t last if I don’t give you time and calm my still hear for right now we may be going to two different directions and know that maybe there is no part in this path that we end up in the same place. 

I am okay with that for the time I get with you while I’m still here and you are living out your life. 

Both of us, trying to figure out what is going to work out and what is best to stop thinking about. 

But, right now were not stressing and we know that the end game is being able to stay true to ourselves and if we end up meeting up again then things will be great and we just can’t wait to see what life has on hold for us. 

I know that the moments I get with you are very few and well things just don’t seem to be giving more but, I’m happy with what God has given me so far and I won’t complain anymore I know it could be worst. 

I will see you someday on that path that leads you to a place that truly brings peace into your life.

Like a blur you were gone before I could capture the real beauty in you that day, the only thing I saw was the yellow in your skirt and the black of your one boot.

You said you would slow down and try to enjoy these little moments in life that we bot h wanted to enjoy together was slowly cut short. 

You were gone and I didn’t know how to feel or how to get in touch with you, for your phone was not picking up and all I wanted to hear was love and calmness of your voice that day.

Daily Prompt: Haul

You wanted so badly to haul the words that would make them all be so shocked because you were tired of hearing them  complain over and over to you.

You wanted to haul the words that they threw out at you because they were mad about something that had nothing to do with you.

You wanted to haul words and possibly things just to end the anger and frustration that had nothing to do with you.

You wanted to haul the words of I don’t care because well it’s you life and right now you are not listening to me.

So I’ll haul everything to the side and move on and let you figure it out on your own.

Daily Prompt: Frantic

She was worried that she couldn’t do this on her own now that she had decided this was the right thing for her.

she quickly became frantic with worry that everything that had been carefully planned out was now ruined.

She couldn’t understand that there was worked to be done but, No one showed up and no one left a message.

She knew she had to do something soon or later for her stress levels were already

Up and there was no telling how this was going to go.
