remember the first flower you ever gave me and how you smiled so sweetly at me that day.

You melted my cold heart that day giving it back the heat it needed to keep warm and beat strong inside of me.

The days of it just being me were long ago as my days became me and you always smiling and explore new things together.

Not wasting a moment together to see and experience what life has to offer us and taking risk left and right because well we only live once.

There wasn’t a dull moment with us and every moment was worth taking a picture of for the memories were breath-taking for me.

That flower shined so bright just like you and the smile that was always pasted on your face when you saw me.

Daily Prompt: Famous

Being well-known doesn’t mean that you have to be  famous

you could just be some who does an amazing job that others are happy to spread the good word of your hard work around.

We all want  to notice in some type of way and maybe it doesn’t have to end with millions of people.

Maybe a couple hundred or fewer people know how great you are will be enough and you will feel successful and honored that someone out there is truly thinking about you.

A little lost

for words these days when everything starts to feel like it’s blending all together and you just aren’t spending your time wisely.

You feel like you want to do much more with what you have been offered but, because of the situation life seems to be going in you just don’t get to enjoy it as much.

You want to say more but, you’re so far from feeling like yourself that nothing seems to be helping you get out of this place where you are stuck.

Feeling like you have lost your way and this life you seem to not enjoy so much isn’t helping you find yourself or helping do much at all but feel empty at the end of the day.

Anywhere

I rather be right now than here in the darkness that swallows me whole with no exit insight.

I sit here trying to think of a way out because it feels like I’m suffocating on all that is pushing up against me.

This solution is not an answer to my situation and so I’m back at square one and it feels like I’m running out of time and air around me.

As I slowly fall down and down like black hole that you can’t see the bottom and so when will I hit the spot that tells me this is solved and over with.

Nothing to help me pull my way back up, right now it feels like a losing battle for me and as I fall I start to think about the things that have come before this moment and time.

Was there a time that I could have stopped myself from falling into this danger that just eats me alive and ends up with me being nothing in the end.

Feeling

a little lost after spending so much time on the move that when one slows down.

It’s like I’ve missed so much and well the people who demand so much of me don’t care as I lose myself and the person I see in the mirror these days are a stranger.

Her eyes always looking so tired and sad that I wonder what others see when they see her everyday.

Do they see her cry for help, because all she wants to do is escape and not be trapped in this space of feeling like a stranger in the body that she lived in since she was young.

The sweet and innocent person is now so sad and angry or just too tired to care at all what she is.

No longer taking crap from anyone she has become so hard that it’s so hard to be soft towards anyone for her guard is always up now.

She feels like nothing good is coming from her new change and fears her sometime good time will soon turn into nothing but nasty and unfortunate events.

Daily Prompt: Core

I knew the truth of that day would come back and haunt me down to the very core of my exist.

I didn’t want to face the facts that something dark and sad happened that day that well only a few know the truth about.

It was so long ago that I didn’t want it to be brought up again.

It felt like a recurring nightmare that some how was developing out each not to be more frightening than before.

All the details were still fresh in my mind even though years have passed by since that day.

I didn’t sense danger at first but, yet I knew something was not right about that moment and even though I can’t go back and erase it away.

I know that it ended on an okay note and today it doesn’t haunt me as much as it used too.

I hope everyone has a blessed day and enjoy the little bit of relax you may receive today.
