So many words…


So many words

You’ve quietly said

Now swirl around

Inside my head


Beautiful words

Filled with hope

Keep me going

Help me cope


Loving words

Flood my heart

With the reassurance

Of a brand new start


Difficult words

Wisdom that hurts

Often feeling

Cold and curt


Secret words

Between you and me

Comfort my soul

And set me free

Hanging back and somewhat unwilling to reveal myself to you

Evading concerns and hoping everything will work out in the end

Slowly reacting, as it’s hard to face the problems which exist

Indecisive and unsure, of where life will take us from here

Tentative to talk to you, for fear of losing what is most important

Afraid of what would happen, if we were completely honest

Nervous about the future and what could potentially happen

Torn between what could be and what most certainly is

Glad this doesn’t represent us anymore

You have to let go

Of those you love


Sometimes as hard as it is

To say goodbye

It’s really for the better


Sometimes people don’t even realize

How much better off they are without you

Until you allow them the freedom to see it for themselves


Sometimes we selfishly

Hold onto people

Who were never meant to be ours in the first place


Sometimes we forget

That other people are involved

And are getting hurt as well


Sometimes we just have to

Realize our mistakes

And right our wrongs the best we can


Sometimes it hurts

To be brutally honest

With someone we care about


Sometimes you can feel

As if you’ll never be the same

Because your heart is breaking

At the thought of losing somebody

Who was such an important part of your life


Sometimes there’s just no other choice…


Sometimes that’s just the way life is…


Sometimes life can be completely unfair…

Mere flickers of truth


Mere flickers of truth
Bare their empty souls
While lies and deceit
Seep through the holes

Honesty wavers gently
Hovering over your head
While you continue
Your deception instead

Falsehoods beckon
To tell their tales
Yet you entrust nothing
Thus friendship fails

And the cold bitter truth
Cannot set you free
Because you hide your woes
Where nobody can see

Trent Shelton – Are they really your friends?

Are they…?



Him vs. Her – The grime of life


Where to begin… I really have no idea what to write about.  Everything I’d been considering earlier, sounded so much better as I was standing in the shower this morning.  However, I do think that this quote sort of sums things up for me today.  It’s too bad all of the muck in my life, couldn’t have somehow broken free and lost its way down that drain.  No matter what I do, the problems and issues I’m currently facing, just never seem to go away.  I suppose I feel that I have come to a place in my life, of complete discontent and unhappiness.  So much so, that I have been trying to find happiness in all the wrong places and have set myself up for failure during the process.  Backtracking is the hardest thing of all, because once we move forward, we can never seem to go back the same way we came.  True the saying goes… nothing ventured, nothing gained.  But then again, I think I’ve been testing the fire with my bare hands, and now I’m paying the price for that.  Life… does it ever get any easier?  Sigh…

Authentic friendships



“Very few friendships stand the test of time, because authentic love and honesty are so very hard to find.” ~M

Truth is everything


Honesty and truth
I cannot live without
Even a little white lie
Makes me want to curse and shout

Others think it’s fine
To keep living in this way
For me it is a death
That cannot be swept away

The truth will always come out
In the cold bitter end
Those terrible secrets
Just won’t rescind

If only we would realize
The cost before we lie
We would save ourselves so much grief
And life would happily go by

Instead we do just the opposite
Hoping to never get caught
And then we wonder why
Life can’t be what it ought
