Little things

Lost without you

I won’t allow myself to cry. My tears will stay dry before they fall into my hand where you used to hold on to. But now you’ve let go and my tears are drowning in my eyes. My vision is gone and my heart is blinded. The emptiness carries on and grows in my soul. No one ever hears me even when I scream. The ache is still here after all these years. Even when you’re so close to me it never leaves. I feel your hand slowly slipping away. I fade away to my own distraction and I’m lost without you.

Little things

Hiding behind a pretty smile

You put a smile on every morning so nobody will see what you’re hiding. That ache in you that isn’t disappearing. And when your morning turns to the evening, the smile you put on fades. But not the ache. The ache burst through like a cold breeze you felt that morning from the fall wind. And when you put your head to your pillow every night, you wish for it all to disappeared. And it will, for a while. But then morning comes and you’ll put your smile back on again so nobody will see what you’re hiding.

Life

Is this it?

Is this what I’ve been waiting for? My birthday. All my life I’ve waited for this day, the day I turn 18. I remember when I was 13 years and couldn’t wait to grow up and become an adult. Just to know all the things you can do, being your own boss. But the only thing fun about growing up is.. well, you fill out the blank because I don’t know yet. But I do know that I’ve learned a lot in these 18 years of my lifetime and I’ve been so blessed having a wonderful family who cares more than anything and I love them to death. And all my friends who’ve been there through thick and thin with me, I couldn’t have made it without you. So thank you to all who has every given me a reason to live, laugh and love. You keep me going and I hope for another good 18 years to come and more!
