A Year Ago

(On August 1st, 2019, my prayer from the night before was answered) A year ago I didn’t know the journey I was about to embark on. A year ago I woke up with a completely new mindset. To let go of all the stuff from the past that hurt me. That stuff I always carried…

Shadows On A Cloudy Day

My friends are like shadows on a cloudy day. The efforts are like the rays of a sun. The journey always ends the very same way. So I find myself daily surrounded by no-one. My love returned is like shadows on a cloudy day. No matter the goal of my heart, I always get the…

Heart-Shaped Box

A mysterious heart-shaped box lies on her desk with pieces of paper inside. Picked up the first piece and it read, “for my future bride”. A smiled came across her face as she knew exactly who had written it. Grabbed another piece and that one read, “thinking of you every waking moment”. With many more…

How Can I?

I ask. See this misery end without a guarantee that I’ll ever see you again? Live in this isolation, knowing when it’s over, I still won’t have my friend? Put my heart on hold with every moment and every feeling? Move on as if I’m okay despite obviously still reeling? How can I? I ask.…

Working On Her Dream

She’s left with part of my heart in tow. Took it with her, even more so than I let her know. Leaving me torn apart; up, down, and all in between. Yeah, she took off now to start working on her dream. She’s right to chase her goal down. No need to stay, even though…

Another Day

Another day without your presence near me Bringing my soul to a down-trodden state. Coping with the fact that I can’t decide when it’ll be, No, I can’t change the course taken by time’s fate. Your voice is music that my ears love to hear. Your eyes are nutrition for my sight. Your sweetness cures…

Not Getting Easier

It’s not getting easier, never will without you. I know I must, but all I have inside doesn’t want to. You have me hooked my beautiful friend, Caused my heart to skip a beat once again. May have to see a doctor as it’s now a trend. Oh, how I want this life without you…

If I Could, I Would

If I could, I would... Write her letters before her shifts. If I could, I would... Surprise her with random gifts. If I could, I would... Only have love between us, never any rifts. If I could, I would... Tell a funny joke to make her laugh. If I could, I would... Give her a…

One More Time

If we could meet one more time, I’d jump at the chance I wouldn’t even need to speak, I’d just listen. To hear your voice, to just enjoy it. While the time has expired, the sound will always resonate Never to be taken for granted again. A sweet serenade, a melody of peace Never would…
