So they wait…

She missed him terribly today.
The thought of being in his arms
lingered much longer
than she expected.

The words
“I love you”
flow freely from her heart,
but her mind cannot fathom
loving someone
who chooses to keep her
at a safe distance.

She has chosen
to no longer accept his gifts
for she fears they come
at too high a price.

She would rather
be loved than ‘bought’.
She will not sell her soul
only to lose
the most important thing of all,
the Love of God.

She daydreams
of holding his hand
as they walk by the moonlight —
to kiss his lips under the stars,
no longer hidden from the world.

She has no use
for complicated love
and yet it seems to always find her.
Lovers, trying to be friends…
Friends afraid to be in love…

He and she,
two worlds broken,
seeking to mend in their own way.
Unsure if being together
will add to their disfunction
or help them heal.

So they wait…
For how long?
Neither one knows…
For the right time?
For the pain to subside?
For the old memories to fade?
Perhaps for time to set them free…

Breaking point

 

Everyone has
their breaking point.
Today was hers…

She walked
into the board room,
set her briefcase
on the table,
unclipped her
corporate name badge
from her lapel,
set it beside the briefcase
and walked out the door.

In her briefcase
were her corporate files —
her most recent assignment.
Her findings were catastrophic!
On top of those files
was her letter of resignation.

Everyone has
their breaking point.
Today was hers…

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?
