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.

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.

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.

I came

Back to our spot on the beach in hopes, you would show up.

I even wore the lights you gave me last Christmas.

I was hoping they would help you find your way back to me.

everything that was planned.

Before all this is a nice set of memories to look back on.

But now I stand here waiting to see your face.

To be able to enjoy the nice weather with you.

For it has been so long since I’ve seen you in person.

Facetime has been nice but it isn’t the same as sharing the same air and I miss your touch.

They say or you might lose your head.

For walking under this path during a storm may just cost you more than you thought.

Even on a nice day as today being cautious and minding your head may just be what you need.

It’s been

Photo by Natan Yakobs on Unsplash

an long time since I’ve sat at a desk and wrote something by hand.

And the words just don’t flow as they used too.

But it feels good to have a pen in my hands again and to think of the possibility of me writing something good today.

It’s been a long day, but it’s all worth it in the end when I feel the peace and love flow through me.

I know that one day it will happen for me to write something great on paper again.

Lately it

Russia artist

Feels as if I’m standing still.

But the dragon in me is slowly moving behind me.

Trying to find what is missing from my life.

The search is long and exhausting but I won’t stop looking and either will he.

The sun sets and rises again and again and my hope of that day coming.

Just seems too far away and my patience and heart is wearing thin,.

I don’t know how much more chill it can allow into my life.

Maybe it’s time for me to say some words and hopefully they will be heard.

Oh how

You are always on my mind and always in my heart.

You are my guide through this all.

And lately I haven’t been my best and yet you have stayed by my side.

For you are my God and through it all I truly know I can overcome it all.

Especially when I am a mess and nothing seems to make sense but when I let go.

And wake up the next day you always deliver just what I need.

And for that I am so grateful and I know through the struggles.

You will be there and I accept the hard times because when it’s easy it always feels like something missing.

The struggle make somethings so clear and true.

And for that I am thankful and light right now as nothing holds me back.
