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: Annoyed

 

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

Gazing at your eyes

 

Running my fingers
through your hair…

Tracing the outline
of your dimpled cheeks…

Gazing at your eyes
as they stare into mine…

Watching that seductive smile
grow across your lips…

Knowing you’re about to do
something rediculously amazing…

You get me every time…

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.
