Such a

Author:unknown

Pretty face they say.

But in my mind everything

Is becoming too much as it feels like

I could explode at anytime.

Sad eyes always trying to hold it together

When all I want to do is scream.

When will the pressure release it’s self

So I can be in control again and feel weightless.

To let

You in felt like I had finally let down that wall.

That had kept me safe all these years.

I didn’t know why I was so drawn to you all those years ago.

Maybe it was your smile or your kind eyes.

All I know is I trusted you then as I do now

Even though things are short and stained I still cherish all that our friendship stands for.

And I hope your doing better and that we will see each other again someday.

Things have

Change and you

Realize the things that used to bother you

don’t anymore.

At least not in the way they did before.

It’s like they don’t stick to you anymore and so they don’t ruin your mood.

Or your day or week or month.

They just coexist with you

And maybe they get solved and you move on?

Or they just keep floating along forgotten this whole time.

But your story keeps going and the growth in your faith and your lifestyle.

Keeps expanding until doubt and insecurity no longer hold you back.

Your path is clear and your mind and heart

are open to so many more possibilities.

She became

What you wanted her to be

Beautiful

Colorful

Unique

And yet still she wasn’t enough for you.

So you punished her and did all you could to break her spirit.

She fought for so long to stay strong.

But sometimes she was too tired to keep up the shield that protected her all her life.

And she would grow weak and start to believe what you had said about her all this time.

But, after a couple of days, she would grow strong again.

And your words would fall to deaf ears.

As she knew the lies of your words

She hoped soon to be free of your cruelty and to live in peace.

Tonight

Photo by Atıf Zafrak on Unsplash

is all about celebrating this moment together

and I let go all the outside worries and concerns.

As sit out here on such a lovely night, drinking some wine and some food as well.

We know its been a long time coming and we are both excited for this milestone and fruitful future together.

But right now we just want to be in the present and go from there.

Tonight I wear red and I feel so free as my dress flows around me.

Romance is what this night will be all about and for that I am grateful I’m getting to spend time with you.

There you

Stand in the storm

So calm with no fear

That the rain could bring you down at any moment.

So strong and so beautiful you stand through it all and even when the pain is too great.

You still fight through it and sometimes you keep it all to yourself.

And I wonder how much longer you can stand on your own this time my friend.

Only you

Can answer these unanswered questions for me.

But, waiting for you to find the time seems like a longer wait then I thought.

But I will dig deep and use my patience for once.

And as days turn into weeks and so on I will wait for you.

For the answers are worth the wait at least that’s what I keep telling myself these days.

My light

guides me when I don’t know what to do

and lately its been a difficult to focus on anything other then my light.

It’s spreads out around me trying it’s best to keep the darkness at bay.

But, these days the light and darkness are dancing through out the day and night.

Maybe they will play nice and work together to keep my life balanced.

Then maybe things will be peaceful and less of a game of tug a war.

Am I

To wait for you to change?

Or am I to change and move on and see what this world truly has to offer me.

Even lost I don’t seek you anymore for that would only bring back the sadness I’ve shaken off.

I won’t look back for what is it I’m fighting for anyways?

Everything so unclear as a part of me screams for you.

But, I know your not an option right now for me.
