Waves of agony

image

 

Waves of agony swirl through me:
Sometimes I can’t eat;
Other times I eat too much.

Waves of agony confine me:
Some days I find strength to press on;
On occasion all I want to do is cry.

Waves of agony will wash me:
Learning to swim and not sink;
Hoping to make it to shore.

Press pause

image

 

Press pause
to catch my breath.

Press pause
to clear my head.

Press pause
to see things as they are.

Press pause
to analyze my feelings.

Press pause
to keep my heart safe from harm.

Press pause
to let the tears cleanse my soul.

Press pause
to find some composure.

Press pause
to shift my focus.

Press pause
to find strength to move on.

My broken pieces

image

 

I saved them —
the broken pieces of my heart
left behind by years of heartache and pain.

I placed them in a box —
a safe place out of reach
from any further damage.

I carried on  —
hoping to mend them one day
but somehow life got in the way.

I needed them when we met —
but couldn’t quite remember
my secret hiding place.

I felt your lips meet mine —
our broken pieces are still locked away;
we both need mending still.

I don’t know if we’ll fit perfectly —
but I like having your hand to hold.
I think the healing has begun.

Bad behavior

image

 

When we make excuses
for someone’s bad behavior
we are in fact encouraging them
to continue being ‘bad’.

Not until we let them know
their behavior is unacceptable
do we help them acknowledge
that change is necessary.

Braving the turbulence within…

image

 

Sometimes,
the universe just wants you
to step out of your comfort zone
before it reveals the next step
on the path you must travel.

If you feel turbulence within
it’s not necessarily a bad thing,
you are just being prepared
for a bigger challenge ahead.

Be brave.
Trust the Universe.
Trust the Creator.
Take a leap of faith.

‘Delicious’ memories

image

 

Aching to see you again…
Needing to feel you close…
Yearning to kiss your lips…
Wanting to hold your hand…
Going crazy with burning desire… 
‘Delicious’ memories loop endless…
Going crazy with burning desire…
Wanting to hold your hand…
Yearning to kiss your lips…
Needing to feel you close…
Aching to see you again…
