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…

Beautiful

You couldn’t be any more beautiful. The one that has set the standard. Not that I plan on ever meeting another. For who are we kidding? No other would have a chance. You get all my love, yeah, every last bit. Leaving me would break me to the very core. Unable to stand, unable to…

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…

My Shine

I want you to see what I always believed. The assurance that if I left you behind, my existence would dissolve into nothing. It’s the miracle that you became in me the moment I met you. You’re the sugar to my sweet tooth. A cool breeze to my summer nights. The one whose name I’d…

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. 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…

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…

Ch.10: The Blessing

Her father calling me was surprising, but I wasn’t nervous as we had gotten along well at this point. He began by saying, “I know how you two feel about each other, and I have to admit, I’ve never seen her as happy as she’s been since she first told my wife and I about…

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…

Inside

At midnight, while I lay in my bed, All these thoughts start running through my head. Of a life lived and now forever gone. And yet of another life still to come, only at its dawn. Inside I know that the one that’s been sets to course for the one to come. Inside also lies…
