Intrigued by you

 

A screenshot of you
is thumb-tacked
to the walls
of my soul,
frameless,
for I know not yet
of the permanence
of your presence.

A wall between us

 

I’m not a mindless, shallow person
incapable of comprehending
that life doesn’t always
deal us the cards we want.

We all have our personal struggles.
We all have our crosses to bear.
We all have skeletons in our closets.
We all have stories to tell.
We all have issues
we’re self-conscious about.
We are all human.

The walls you hide behind
to shield your soul
also keep me away.
I have no desire
to force my way
into your life.
I rather be invited.

Don’t shut me out.
Share your heart
and I will guard your secrets
along with my own.
Just do the same for me.

A one-sentence story: Effervescence 

 

Effervescently, I bubbled
like a freshly opened
bottle of sparkling water,
determined to be
full of joy all day long.

A one-sentence story: Fierce woman 

 

Never a follower
of the crowd, 
she walks to the beat 
of her own drum.

A one-sentence story: Annoyed

 

Pursed lips;
hands in pockets;
knotted stomach;
racing heart;
angry words;
no sleep;
massive headache;
freaking annoyed!

Waiting for change… 

 

“So I fell down the stairs
again today.
This time I made it
all the way down
to the bottom
and hit the concrete.
One day it’s gonna stop.
I know it will… ”

These were the words
she said to me,
with a sad smile.

I sighed and shook my head
in disbelief
but deep down
I wanted to yell at her
to WAKE UP!!!

How could she love a man
who abuses her?
She thinks one day
he’ll change.
What is she teaching her kids?

I see her almost daily.
She’s off in space
escaping her reality.

The sadness consumes her
but she carries on.
When will she wake up?

When will she stop waiting
for change that may never come?
When will she find
the strength to move on?
