I don’t know

where things are going and yet I feel like there is so much more that I could have right now.

I know that I’m supposed to be able to do a lot but, right now I’m tired and two days just doesn’t seem enough anymore.

I don’t have the strength to do anything or I just don’t feel like doing anything when I do have the time.

My body doesn’t want to run around and do the things it does doing the week, my soul feels like it’s searching for more in this life.

The words are on repeat and so they are not coming out as much when the inspiration is basically not existing.

The feeling of being overwhelmed is overpowering and sometimes I have to stop and just sit for a while before I can get myself together again.

up even though I’m in my darkness moments and life just seems to suck 

and all I want to do is scream and not care about the things I’m suppose to care about. 

I just want to live in my peace and calm bubble that protects me from the crap that falls on me. 

Its like I’m trapped in the middle of a storm that just doesn’t seem to being stop anytime soon. 

I hope the sun will come out soon and I can finally get out of this place and smile as everything dries up from the storm and the birds come out again and sign a happy song as they fly from tree to tree.

I can’t

stop now as the beat gets louder around me.

I just move to the beat and let go from all the stressful things.

The music heals me from the wounds I didn’t want but come at me when I’m less expected it.

The beat and my heart are beating so fast that I hope it don’t just burst out of my chest.

I close my eyes and lean my head back and just enjoy this moment of peace and, I just think about how I can’t stop listening to this music.

Which always seems to help me figure out how to solve some of my problems in the end.

Daily Prompt: Premature

The moment was premature because neither she or him knew this was the moment that would change everything.

They didn’t know that the  moment that felt strange and out-of-place would be the moment that would change everything.

The thought that this premature love was something that would come back and make a future love that would last longer than it took for them to realize it wasn’t just a one time chance that got them to this place.

Daily Prompt: Skewed

You knew something was going on when she just had a sudden change of her mind.

You had known her for a long time and her barely ever changed her mind.

She was stubborn that way and always that if she couldn’t decide then it wasn’t meant to be.

She was always thought long and hard before letting anyone know her secrets and announcements.

Daily Prompt: Mentor

Someone who taught me something I may not have figured out on my own.

They changed me from the troubled child to a good and kind Adult.

Who realizes that the things that I did in the past helped me to be better in the future and to not take crap from anything one.

I know you would be happy with who I became and I’m glad to have remembered the things you said to me those days.

You were the light to the path I thought I would not go back too but now  I’m on that path again and things have changed since last time.

Your words are the reason I have not given up on my dream and I know one day it will all work out and maybe not the way I want it too.

But it will be the best that I can do.

Daily Prompt: Rivulet

It’s been rough lately and my focus is not as clear as I need it to be.

I needed to go to a spot that would connect me back to nature and be one with myself again.

The little creek by the park with the metal bench always was a great spot for me to just sit down and lose myself in my music and writing at the same time.

It was a beautiful day out today and as I blocked out all the noises around me I just wrote until I was happy with each piece.

It’s one of those days that I am just glad I was able to be off for and now the feeling of being relaxed is all I could have asked for.

As the sun shined down on the creek I found myself thinking I hadn’t been this at peace and happy in a long time.
