Smile captured my heart every time I see you doing something you love like playing on your guitar on your days off.

Or when you laugh at something that’s funny to you that laugh I could listen to all night if I have too.

There is so much joy and light inside of you that spending time with you always puts me in a good mood.

You tell me to follow my dreams for you see so much potential in me and you know that only over time will I keep growing the gift that I was blessed with.

You smile at me and laugh when I’m being so stubborn and you know that if I just let go and ask for help things would be so much more simpler for me.

You are one lucky person I tell you all the time because you get to know me and you laugh because you know I’m right and yet you just won’t admit it.

For me being right would just grow my already big head.

me play you a song because I heard you were really into music and love original songs.

So here I go to the girl in the front row that stole my heart the moment our eyes meant that night six months ago.

As you song and played your guitar to the song you dedicated to me, I couldn’t stop crying and smiling to the sweet lyric you wrote about me and our love story.

I knew that everything that we had been through was worth working out and that or future was brighter than I thought it could possibly be.

I had so much hope that we would work out because of that day changed me and opened my eyes to a side of you I didn’t know existed.

I fell in love with you more that night and that song became my favorite song of all time and I still play it now and then when you don’t personally sing it to me.

We made it so much farther than maybe we would have if you hadn’t written that song and laid it all out for me that day.

Because, before that night it was so hard to get you to spill how you felt without you closing up and the conversion always ending before I got all my answers from you.

I was

drawn to you but for how long I ask myself today

Your smile and your laugh lights up my face all the time.

The time we have together is always what I look forward too

the most because it’s when I’m not stressed out and  at my highest moment of happiness.

My smile reaches my eyes and these moments make me believe that anything is possible if I just have a little faith and believe it will all work out in the end.

Drawn to you like a magnet that I never want to pull away from.

You

had so much to look forward too and maybe you had it all planned out.

But, the day you prepared to walk across that stage felt like the day you had been waiting for.

You were excited and just extreme ready for this day to hurry up for you were just so ready to get it over with.

Soon it ended and the next day was a new journey for you and one that would go in a direction you never thought it would.

The struggle that became your life was overwhelming and not ending anytime soon.

You tried it all to just keep yourself together during this difficult and dark time, It was long and then the light truly shined down on you and things started to look up for you.

But, you became so busy that the little things in life seem not to be as important to you or you just didn’t have the time to enjoy them.

You wanted so bad to just have a moment of peace because you were tired of it all and no matter the little time you got off the state of your mind and body and soul were already ruined and damaged.

You still try to fix the damage that has been done because you just want to be at peace again and to just feel happy for more than two days at a time.

Daily Prompt: Awkward

There’s always awkward moments in life

that make you want to run and hide.

You hate those moments when it feels there is this awkward silence after greeting someone and you just have nothing to say.

You try to come up with something quick to say for it’s just too quite for you.

No noise to you means something or someone is doing something they are not supposed to be doing.

So you go on high-alert waiting for some type of noise to alert you that you need to head in that direction.

Daily Prompt: Slight

She felt insignificant when it came down to the matter at hand.

She was working hard, maybe harder than she really needed too at this point.

But, even though she wanted so bad to not care about the matter anymore.

Somehow it would end up coming back up and she felt like she had no other option but to stop fighting and walk away.

For even though she felt valuable to the cause, she knew staying wasn’t truly what she needed even if that was what they wanted.

The season for her to move on was coming up and she didn’t want to miss out because she felt slightly bad in the end.

Daily Prompt: Flaunt

As the weather gets nicer more people will want to flaunt their body that they worked so hard on in the winter.

They will want to show off their new clothes as they start to wear less layers and enjoy the sun on their skin.

They will want to be out and about to enjoy the weather and see what is going on around them now that the weather is more enjoyable.
