So yea

It’s true we don’t get along

Like day and night.

We’re so different

It hurts sometimes to see you doing so much more without me.

I’ve tried to reconnect but you push me away every time.

Saying what happened in the past is forgiven

But the future is not clear and it would be best if we live apart.

For we all just want a little peace around here.

To be

Three Line Tales 235

three line tales 235: a lavender field at sunset
photo by Léonard Cotte

in peace and in sunlight all at the same time has felt so refreshing as things have not always been so great.

The lavender fields are my favorite place to go when the days are nice and I just want to lay around and relax with the hope of things becoming peaceful.

The field goes on and on and it gives me hope that some days may be long but they will end too and the blessing will come again.

She became

What you wanted her to be

Beautiful

Colorful

Unique

And yet still she wasn’t enough for you.

So you punished her and did all you could to break her spirit.

She fought for so long to stay strong.

But sometimes she was too tired to keep up the shield that protected her all her life.

And she would grow weak and start to believe what you had said about her all this time.

But, after a couple of days, she would grow strong again.

And your words would fall to deaf ears.

As she knew the lies of your words

She hoped soon to be free of your cruelty and to live in peace.

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.

You and I

So different but

Yet we’re drawn together.

Connecting and reconnecting overtime

Feels so right and this time I won’t let go.

Fighting myself to not mess this up.

Always so bright when you are near and I love it.

The darkness is no more when you are around.

Today will be great no matter what

For my light is shining brightly since our interaction yesterday.

With so much

Going on around me

And well hiding isn’t an option.

For I want to survive

Well being cautious and aware about what is going on around.

And I want to stand up and say something and not just hide behind a screen.

I want to work hard and feel like every step i take isn’t like me tip toeing around because I’m afraid to make the wrong move.

For I know the danger is not just in the streets but inside the buildings.

But to speak ones mind and to believe it will all work out.

Takes an higher power and I know no one can take him from me.

So with him I will survive dead or alive for my presents will not be forgotten about.

But for now I will survive alive and continue everything

And hope he will deliver no matter what the outcome for me will be.

For when he comes and paves the way there will be no human that can stop his victory.

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.

You’ve always

Photo by Jakob Owens on Unsplash

Been my rock through these tough times.

Just one hug

Just one kiss

Just one look

And everything that seemed too much no longer matters.

For you know how to calm me down and when to get loud with me on the subject.

You listen and only once I’m done do you give me your opinion.

You try to be non-bias when I recap something for you.

For you always want to see the good in people and when it doesn’t work.

You drop the bullshit and move on.

Your always making sure everyone is good before you take care of yourself.

You will always be a part of my happiest moments.

For every begins and ends with you.

Only you

Can answer these unanswered questions for me.

But, waiting for you to find the time seems like a longer wait then I thought.

But I will dig deep and use my patience for once.

And as days turn into weeks and so on I will wait for you.

For the answers are worth the wait at least that’s what I keep telling myself these days.
