I let it float up high in the sky that night in the hopes that this love would last for a long time.

I knew this night would be so romantic and sweet for you and me and I would treasure it with all the other happy memories.

Your smile was so bright and lovely that night, I’ll never forget how happy you looked.

I wonder

if you remember me to this day like you said you would and if I still flash in your mind from time to time.

Do the memories of me bring on sadness and regret or just the joy we experience in the time we knew each other.

I know the memories come and go only when my mind has the time to slow down from the busy life that I am living.

Only in these times when my mind sees something that used to be apart of our daily routine than to I think of you.

The past that only pops up when the stress is fading away and some of the better moments in my life comes back to me and always puts a smile on my face.

I’ve been

running all my life from something that could eat me up inside 

and many may not know what this thing was and how much it controlled my life. 

Some days were rough and I just didn’t want to deal and so I kept running and I wouldn’t stop until this feeling would leave me and I was at peace with myself again.

Things used to feel like this great pressure was always pushing on me and no matter how much I tried to push back it would win and I would become so weak.

I wouldn’t know what to do but, let this pull win and that it control me as I just didn’t care and life became so dull and my focus was way off and everything felt like I was in a storm. 

And no matter how hard I ran way this feeling would resurface and knock me back on my butt and as I reached out it would help but the pull will be something I live with until this day.

journey ahead of me and I’m ready to take it and get away from this place. 

I need this trip to forget all the things that I’ve been stressing about and I just want to read and lose myself in something other than my life problems and the things I want to do. 

I want to feel like I’m doing something I want to do and I’m enjoying this time that I have to myself for this trip will be so long that I won’t know what day it is and I wont have a care in the world. 

As days and weeks fly by all the matters will the be the smile on my face and laugh that seems to be always filling the air around me. 

I will smile and realize this is the sweetest and peaceful  moment in my life and I know that I’ve waited a long time for this moment to come and I wouldn’t trade it in for anything.

When I looking my reflection in this dirty water, I wonder who am today and who I used to be.

I’m not that bright person I used to be full of light and hopeful in the things life throw at me.

Now I see nothing good happening as the problem becomes unsolvable, no matter how hard we work our lights are gone for good this week.

What a day

Like this path I didn’t feel like this day would ever end.

My hope for some peace and quite was not going to happen at least not today and I felt like as the day went on that I was losing my mind and no matter how hard I try things were not going to end well for me.

I don’t know why I expect more when I know the no relief is going to come for me and as my happy voice fades and the voice of defeat set in.

I don’t know how or why I put myself through this everyday and every week when I feel like there is no recovery for me and my mind is losing it’s focus and  I can’t remember what happened yesterday anymore and even though my memory is still sharp for long-term things.

My short-term memory is falling apart like everything else around me and yes I want to care and deal with it all but, sometimes I just want to be left alone and not have to answer to this crap.

I’m praying and hoping that things will charge for how much longer do I have to stand here and fight a battle that just feels like it’s not mine to fight but I am doing all the heavy lifting because they are too lazy to help out.

Daily Prompt: Retrospective

Sometimes looking back on past events doesn’t help you move forward in life it just gets you thinking about the what if’s.

And the what if’s really don’t get you anywhere because you start looking back on how you could improve the life that you are current living.

And yes we all want to improve on something to make life better but, we shouldn’t beat ourselves up just because we are not in the stage in our life we want to be.

Some day what is meant to be will fall right into place and we will be blessed that life is still improving and  that we get to wake up everyday and look back only to fix the things we can.

And to let go of the things that we just aren’t meant to have.
