Past

The day I dread came to visit,

once again I feel the same pain I’ve felt before.

Only this time I face it alone.

The past is taunting me,

making it hard to move on..

Old words linger in my mind,

as the memories crush my heart.

Such mistakes mocks me in my dreams.

Each moment I think about it,

weakens me more and more.

Someday I’ll learn

to move on from the past,

and learn to forgive myself.

For now I just have to be patient

with myself,

till the dreaded days are just the past.

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” ~ Johnny Cash

Pride

Sitting here alone,

looking out the window.

Letting my thoughts dance around.

Thinking how things would’ve turn out,

if I just have the courage to drop my pride.

Letting time run away from my palms.

Each moment I stare out here,

and think about what to do.

Is a moment gone that I can be with you.

Tears visits me,

while confusion filled my thoughts.

Decisions to make,

and looking at results.

So I sit here alone,

to wait for myself.

For the minute I gather up courage

to drop my pride,

and be with you again.

Missing

Being away from someone

we love is like a big puzzle

in our heart that is missing.

Trying to complete it with

attention from someone,

is a way to fool ourselves,

The part of us wanting

to forget the sadness,

while the other part

is waiting for that someone to come back.

Wishing to hug them,

but trying to deny the truth.

Knowing you’ll be back here,

but expecting the worst.

So I’ll wait for now,

till the missing days are over.

“Missing someone is your heart’s way of telling you that you love them.” ~ Unknown
