A Lost Voice

7 Oct

“Where have you been?” I ask my own voice again.

“I never left,” my voice replies.

I frown and look down at my hands on my lap, confused and torn by my little mishap.

Stuck inside myself for years with no words coming out. It’s no wonder I question what my life is about.

Feelings there, unidentified to me, but I long to name them so they can be free.

I want to explain in words all my feelings so deep and true. I want to tell all my feelings to the one and only you.

In order to achieve this, I need to find my voice, no matter what it takes…this is my choice.

A short story to Magic of Love

5 Oct

There once were two young lovers. The female was beyond beautiful and pure of heart. She dazzled people and was a joy to be around. The male was strong and courageous. He always stood up for what he believed in and would protect his lover with his life. They were raised together on palace grounds. One being a simple farmer and the other being the daughter of one of the wealthy ladies of the court. They were very happy until one day a terrible war would tear them apart. All the men of at least 16 years of age were called to fight to defend the kingdom.

During this time, the young seventeen year old waited everyday for her lover to return home. Her mother wished her to marry well and sought to set her up with someone higher in the courts. She would not hear of this and slowly started keeping to herself more and more. Everyday she would go up to the hill and watch soldiers slowly trickle back home, but she never saw her lover.

Three years passed and there were moments when she wanted to give up hope, but his promise to return to her kept her waiting. On a particularly chilly day, when the dew drops from the previous days rain clung onto the grasses and the trees, the young woman walked to the top of the hill like she did every day. It was more of a habit than anything now. She was about to go back to the palace when something caught her eye. A new platoon of soldiers was returning home.

Leading the platoon was a very handsome man with a black uniform and a sword hung on his side. She blinked her eyes because she thought she was dreaming. She didn’t believe it was real. She quickly turned away and sucked in a deep breath of air. At that moment her lover looked up and saw her. She felt his eyes and turned around to see him.

The world stopped for both of them and all they could see was each other. The young woman lifts up her dress and starts running towards him. Her dress is heavy though and she keeps falling. Frustrated see looks down at the ground she is now sitting on because she can’t seem to close the distance between them. Maybe this was another dream after all. A gentle hand lifts up her chin and helps her up. Her eyes fill with happy tears as she looks into her lovers eyes.

They smile at each other and he caresses her cheek as she runs a hand through his hair. All her waiting had paid off. He had kept his promise and made it safely back to her. He gently bent down to kiss her and she wrapped her arms around his neck and brought her lips to his passionately. His eyes widened for a moment in surprise and he closed his eyes and kissed her back passionately.

They slowly broke apart and he held her gently. Whispering in her ear of promises to never leave her again. His new ranking in the army had made him move up in the court, making him almost as good as a noble. He took her hand in his and gently led her back over to the path and they walked back home where they would start their new life together.

Strong Enough (My chorus)

3 Sep

Don’t tell me to walk away.

Don’t tell me I’m making mistakes.

I know that life is hard but baby, I’m not giving up.

I’m telling you we’re strong enough.

I’m begging you to keep holding on.

Cuz in my heart I know, we were always meant to be.

 

(This was part of a silly little song I wrote several years ago. I like it. ^.^)

Pushing Through

11 Aug

Many times in life we are faced with lots of difficult tasks and decisions. It feels like the world is against us. Sometimes you just want to give up and lie down. I’ve learned a lot this week about this. I have realized that sometimes you just need to keeping pushing through, push just a little more to get what you want. Not all things are easy to come by. The best things in life are meant to be earned. It’s more rewarding that way and you certainly appreciate it more. Yes, I know, when it rains it pours. That’s why you have to love yourself first. Then build yourself a positive community of friends and family or whoever, that will support you and help you when you need it. Something else useful for you during these times…is simply KNOWING YOUR RESOURCES. There are so many people out there…and their jobs are to help. Ask questions. Someone should at least be able to direct you in the right direction. More often than not you’re going to have to speak to multiple people, several times, before you get what you need accomplished. If you get overwhelmed (which believe me…I’ve been there too) then take a step back for a moment and relax. You can only push things so far and things can only move so fast. Go to your happy place, talk to someone who will listen. Distract yourself. WANTING to feel better also helps. Sometimes when we get stuck in that rut…I’ll be the first to admit to feeling sorry for myself. Sometimes you just wanna stay that way. It’s easy to throw a pity party. You’re not getting anything accomplished doing that though. Just keeping pushing through. Things will get better…and if you don’t get what you want…then something better is most likely on the way for you. Just wait your turn. 🙂

A little about this crazy thing called LIFE!!!

7 Aug

Seasons change and people come and go. A lot has been going on in life. Even when you are down and blue…life still continues all around you. Even you are moving forward, though you probably won’t realize it until later. You learn to pick up your own pieces because at the end of the day, YOU are the only one that you can always rely on. 🙂 So you should love yourself more and treat yourself better. Spoil yourself every once in a while. ENJOY life. You only live once. You might as well make the best of it. As for me…people come and go…but I try to learn something from everyone. It’s actually out of my negative experiences that I have grown the most. ^.^ Someone out there loves each and every one of you. I know I do ❤ So keep trying to find the positives and stay strong.

My Sweetest Poison

18 Jul

My sweetest poison is always on my mind.

I can feel its presence surround me even when it’s not close by.

The scent lingers all around me, even on my skin.

Time to sit back and let this all soak in.

Where have you gone? Why have you left me so?

My sweetest poison, I love you, it’s a fact don’t you know.

The feel of your lips, the touch of your skin,

Oh what I wouldn’t give to have it all again.

Safe in your arms, the sweet sound of your voice,

Please believe that giving you up wasn’t my choice.

My sweetest poison I have waited for you,

And though I’m taking a break, it’s still waiting too.

Without you close by I feel a loneliness so deep

That no words can explain and I can only weep.

Sweetest poison you are like a drug.

More and more I have of you but I can’t get enough.

Dizzy from your highs, blue from your lows,

Baby I just want our love to grow.

Here’s the thing about me and you,

I think that I need you to love me too.

My sweetest poison can’t you see,

Your sweetest poison has to be ME.Image

A broken spirit

3 Jul

Nobody would know the blood, sweat, and tears she went through almost everyday.

She kept pushing forward, desperately needing her breakthrough.

Forward was all she could go. Nowhere to run. Nobody to turn to.

She sat on her knees and cried, a mournful soul filled weep.

She lifted her hands to the sky and poured her heart out to her redeemer.

She waits. The only thing she hears is to keep moving forward.

It will be over soon.
