A Night In

There they were, two friends, nothing more, on her couch searching through the selection of movies from the streaming service after agreeing to hang out with each other after several weeks of not seeing one another. Her: I’m glad you agreed to a movie night. I know how much you’re not into them, so I…

Prince of Peace

Prince of peace, you hold our hearts Prince of peace, you live within us Before we breathed, you set us apart So for that, in you we put our trust We strive to live every day in your presence Knowing all that you sacrificed for our eternity Finding, seeing, feeling, all your love and its…

Memory

I still remember the day I first met you. Always will as I won’t ever forget you. But now that it’s over I’ll deeply miss you. Hope I’m someone in turn you’ll miss too. To no longer see your smile or hear your voice Was never going to be my life’s first choice. I wanted…

Ch. 12: The Engagement

With everyone ready to surprise her even more than she already was, I beckoned all of them to come out and celebrate our engagement. Surprise! Everyone yelled. She was so ecstatic. “I was about to call you”, she told her parents. She was so enamored with the engagement ring that her parents gave me to…

For Me and For Her

For as long as I remember, I’ve searched for her. I smiled at her. I talked with her. I laughed with her. I helped her. I worked with her. I became friends with her. I respected her. I adored her. All in hopes of finding out that the moment with her existed. The moment of…

You Hurt Me

You hurt me the day it all came to an end. As if I never mattered to you as much as you did to me. Yeah catching me by surprise no longer being my friend. As if I never earned your trust as you ended it abruptly. And now it’s a little too late. Yes,…

Years Later

There she was the girl he fell for years before. It’d been years since they last spoke. Six, seven, maybe more. Still as beautiful as he remembered. Gorgeous as the day he first approached her. He went up to her to say hi, hoping she still remembered him. She did and even admitted that seeing…

Somehow I Don’t Mind

It’s over and somehow, I don’t mind. Even if you do still run through my mind. I can see you and not speak a word. It’s how I know that you’re not my whole world. It still hurts, so don’t get me wrong. It’s why this is sounding like a goodbye song. Never thought this…

Dear Past

You have had your fair share of victories over us. Times that brought us to tears. Nights that we laid awake thinking about the decisions that led us to that very moment in time. You’ve been cruel to us, trapping us in our present at times with flashbacks to what you have done. We have…

Feeling It Still

Just when I thought it was safe to smile again, thinking that I had had enough. You came on back and pulled me in with all your good stuff. The beautiful smile you possess, the angelic eyes that I love so much. Along with that special place in my heart that only you find a…

A New Day

It’s a new day, with new beginnings, new allegiances. Time to lay down all our past grievances. Forgetting the past, forgetting all the failed attempts. Looking ahead and turning weaknesses into strengths. Minds reprogrammed, hearts refueled, and spirits revitalized. Plugging into a second gear to becoming reenergized. Leaving our old selves where we belong, in…

Sitting Alone

Sitting alone in my room. An all too familiar scene playing once again. Sitting alone in my room, Without another near me, not a love, not a friend. The tears being held back by only a wall. One I had to build up out of necessity. Otherwise I’d drown from all of them that I’d…

Kissing The Silence

Here I lay just kissing the silence. Even though she's right next to me. If that doesn't paint the picture Of what we have come to be. What once was my life's armor, Is now the reason I can't breathe. Suffocating from this solitude. I hate that I now want her to leave. And so…

No More Love

If I told you to echo the words I speak, would it make them stronger or make them weak? There’s no more love between us, All we ever do now is fight. There’s no more love between us, The clock has struck midnight. Telling me your sorry just won’t do this time. Telling you I’m…
