In this

moment I feel like I’m fading away from what used to be my past.

As I look into what could be my future right now I’m enlightened and ready.

The peace is welcoming and I am in place where fading away from a place that never felt was right for me is okay.

I’m looking forward to being one of the good ones that will remembered once I’m gone.

But for now I will fade in and of their minds.

Is it

 Cold out as I smile for the picture.

You would think I would know with all the winter gear I’m wearing.

But really I just wanted to show off my new outfit and lipstick.

To be the center of attention that day felt great.

For I’m reality fitting in feels like a challenge and that type of battle I just can’t shake.

I want to be me but not be alone when I know I’m with getting to know.

Maybe today someone will start with me but I will walk around and she see who reacts to me in a good vibe and then let them decide whatever it is now.

There is

 Always two ways to go and the possibility that you could pick the right one is 50/50.

But today you can relax for you know which path to take on this run.

And maybe when the time comes to choose the path that will lead you to new things.

You will be ready to make the right decision and have that feeling inside that you did the right thing.

You never seem to know when that path will come up so it’s best to know what you want and don’t want in your life so that the red flags are seen sooner rather than later.

I tried

to wait for you a little longer.

But, the wind started to pick up and I had to leave and as I walked away I tried to text you again.

But still, no reply and I just don’t understand how you didn’t pick up as today was the day you choose to meet up with me.

Now not only was my time wasted out in the cold it just sucks for any day now I will be leaving and this reality we had together is slowly coming to end.

I just hope you reach out to me before I get even farther away from you and the time it will take for me to come back will be too long.

That even you may move on and forget about me and I’m hoping you don’t forget me and that our future will still be something that can happen and not just some fantasy we came up with one long cold night.

A moment

with just you and me before it gets cold again.

Lots of candles were lite and petals on the table.

As we came together in hopes of a good night for our day was probably not so good.

But once together again and nothing matters as all the bad moments fade away even if it’s just for tonight.

Everything is quiet and the peace is all around as we stare into each other eyes and have a great night.

And when it’s all said and done we are all just glad to enjoy each other time and hope that the next night out for us won’t be a long time away.

To beat

the cold I had to put on my fur and have my lantern  guide the way as I travel back to my home on this almost dark night.

This winter has barely arrived and already it is cold and warm than back to cold and frankly I have had enough and I just want to cuddle up and not be bother with the cold air form outside.

But tonight I have to  acknowledge all that is going on around me for I have so much to look for and to look forward too.

For the winter has delivered me something to be grateful for.

Just another

day in the snow trying to make it to the car after walking through it all.

When I hear someone call my name and up I look to see who it could be and in hope they are not  too far away for it is quite cold out here today.

And I rather be inside with a hot drink and a blanket as I have done all my errands and now I can enjoy what’s left of this snow day for me.

And I do hope the snow doesn’t come back around anytime too soon as I am okay with the cold but the snow is where I draw the line unless it keeps me from going to work.

I need

omid-armin-a5EbQpl-IHw-unsplashPhoto by Omid Armin on Unsplash

these little moments when it’s just me and I can sit and appreciate all the moments you have blessed me and have allowed me to see another day.

I sit here with a smile on my face in hope that things will continue to get better for me because I am not the one to continue down this path where I allow others too much control of my life.

I am ready to gain more strength and patience to get through this storm I’m about to walk into for not the first time but it’s been awhile.

I know that I can face anything with you God so help me to keep my mouth shut when I have nothing nice to say and to hold me back when people try me.

Allow me to pause before I jump into anything these days for I know you will guide me the right way and that it’s time for me to do what needs to be done before my time is up.

It’s the day

Week 204 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 204: a hamster in a bit plush green towel

photo by Frenjamin Benklin via Unsplash

after Christmas and this little guy is something no one wants to see at anytime of the year.

He may look a little cute and small but he is not the one anyone wants to play with useless this little guy is your pet and at this point he still needs to go.

His on my favorite blanket and I’m afraid to move for he looks like his about to jump so please grab him while you can and I’d like a new blanket please too for when you take him away you can have the blanket too.
