In such

A short time we have become your angels

Standing behind you no matter what.

Trusting in each other as the night goes on and dark becomes light as we are together into the morning each day.

As a little family, we look out for each other.

We lift each other up and eagerly await to learn more from each other.

So intertwined we can almost read each other’s minds.

We are forever connected no matter where we may end up going at the end of the day.

No issues as we connect over and over again.

Forever loyal to one another.

With no doubt, we have each other back.

Whether we are questioned today or tomorrow.

It’s like

I never knew how to live

until you came along and showed me continuous kindness.

No matter how much of a pain in the ass I was

You never let that get to you, you always lifted me up

Even though I never asked for it.

You always were the extra support even when it was just small things that bothered me.

The support I always wanted but didn’t seem to receive because I felt I didn’t deserve them.

To feel

Like it’s too soon to reach out to you again.

Even though being around you is like experiencing Christmas everyday.

Your words are as sweet as chocolate and every time you say something I melt a little more.

You’re always so cheerful and jolly like a good Christmas song.

Your like the warmth of a fire I just want to be near on a cold day.

Your like a fan on an overly hot day, keeping me cool as the temperature keeps going up.

Your my marshmallows in my hot chocolate making an already sweet drink sweeter.

Your a nice night on the town, an memory worth cherishing.

Nothing about you is forgettable and for that I am so grateful.

For I know like every season I look forward to see you and experience the changes that come my way.

Am I

Ever going to figure this out.

I want to say more than I’ve said in the past to you.

But I don’t want to scare you away

For the unknown is just so deep and right now so inconsistent.

I’m not ready to let you in completely.

Because I’m haunted by memories of my past.

From a similar situation that didn’t go so well.

I know I have to move on and give you a chance.

But right now it’s hard for me to break away from those chains that are holding me back.

So many

Things I left unsaid

It’s like your there than your not.

And my heart drops every time.

I want scream but what good would that do

For me or for you?

And so the frustration continues

And I wonder just how bad will it be when I finally just let you have it.

I can’t

Help myself and so I reach out to touch you.

Even if this the last chance I will get and so I go for it.

And now it’s all I think about as we are apart and my mind is driving me crazy.

For you’ve always been kind and sweet and always brought a smile to my face.

And things we’re always going great for you were the positive energy I needed around.

But, now your like an unicorn you see it once and then it’s hard to find again or it was well never real to begin with.

I lost

My hope that you would come back.

After the usual five days

And as day six comes around and soon ends.

I know that I must have lost my mind to deal with this.

It feels like a dream that goes on and on and then when I wake up.

I can’t go to back sleep because the dream seemed so real.

I felt every touch and heard every sound and feel of it all disappearing left me slightly empty.

As I close my eyes I try to go back

For I know in that dream my body finally got the sleep it needed.

And now awake all I can do is think of you and that just isn’t okay with me anymore.

You call

My name and I look your way

And I wait for what you have to say.

But nothing seems to come out your mouth and so you look away.

And I stare at you for I guess I expected more.

I wait for you to turn back around just a little longer than I should have.

For you didn’t turn back or even explain why you called my name and looked my way.

But it was clear you had just wasted my time and energy.

When I had better things to do before you distracted me.

And a part of me was mad and irritated that I had even entertained the fact that you had anything to say to me.

Hopelessly

in my feelings day after day.

As I sit here thinking about well everything but mostly about you.

Not that I know what to say to all that at this moment of time.

I know that I am running on empty right now as I sit here trying to deny what is going on right now as I feel slightly confused.

But, every time I receive something from you it brings a smile to my face and it really doesn’t matter what it is.

The smile appears and it doesn’t leave for every thought of you brings it back as if our time together is well timeless.
