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…

The Chase

The thrill of finding a new chase. The look of intrigue coming over my face. My heart setting itself up for a possible discovery. Despite the pain from past pursuits still having me in recovery. Sure, I can keep the desire at bay, so I keep my peace of mind. But what fun would it…

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…

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…

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.

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…

Ch. 11: The Proposal

As I walked up to the front door of our place, I thought it’d be better if I played up my witty side as to not give away the fact that I had an engagement ring in my pocket. It was the only way I could contain my excitement, by trying my best to be…

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…

Without You

I miss you; I need you; I just can't live without you. This life away from you is killing me inside. Every word; every smile; every moment spent with you. Are now memories of all these unleashed feelings that I hide. What might have been; what used to be is all I have now. A…

The Words of My Heart

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…
