Fork In The Road

20160603_103114

I haven’t sat down and written like this in awhile… but I’ve been defeated by words.

I don’t know how to truly define how I’ve been feeling or pinpoint what has been making me feel this way.

I’m not feeling lost… more like I’m still wandering my path.

Just when I thought I was reaching my destination, I came to a fork in the road. Not only does this fork throw my compass off track, but it gives me something this long insipid path has been lacking.

It sparks intrigue, curiosity, and a sense of wonderment that I haven’t felt in years. Its magnetic pull is drawing me in.

For the first time in a long time, I feel like I am connected to the path, not just drifting on it.

Now I’m forced to choose… left…. or right…

I’ve never been one to follow every single rule given to me. I’ve never been one to do exactly as told.

I can keep traveling the same path that I’ve accepted or I can veer left and see where the mystery path takes me.

Funny, I seem to have misplaced my map.

That’s Just Like Her

 

Inspiration is fleeting

Time keeps repeating

Feelings of nothingness fill her soul

Dredging deeper she’s no longer whole

Passions fizzle to oblivion

A flicker of hope illuminates her delirium

Bright as a firework in a velvet sky

Fades as soon as it catches her eye

 Dimming quicker than a roman candle

Lit by a midsummer vandal

A shooting star in the distance but she doesn’t make a wish

Wishes are for fools who believe love exists

Doomed to ill-tempted fate

An out of control infatuation that cannot wait

Her Heart

Patiently waiting

She takes in the day

The sun is shining

While children play

The people’s happiness seems so wrong

Their smiles seem so grey

There’s no reason to laugh

Not on this sun-shiney day

No one seems to notice

No one ever stops to check

They fail to notice the swelling of her neck

That lump in her throat is hard to swallow

Gently placing her hand to her heart, she feels hollow

Alone on a beautiful day

With no one for comfort, she is no one to save

She sighs and retreats back to her cave

The ride for fools

luna park

Buckle up, we’re in for a ride

A ride where thoughts and feelings collide

Spinning and flipping, we cry at the top of our lungs

Words twirling off the tips of our tongues

Wind in our hair, we can’t make this stop

Hearts sink to our stomachs with each little drop

Dizzy with indifference we come to a halt

Realizing now this is nobody’s fault
