Growing Pains

I understand, and I hear you; I love you. I don’t pray!

I don’t believe in random activities, though I procrastinate throughout the day.

I want you. I want me, I want us, I want life.

I need time, more time.

The bolts of life thunder around my mind, creating worlds between myself and I.

The inevitable will happen, and we will fall in love during the day. I’ll kiss you as you fall asleep and quietly walk away.

I bellowed out sounds of pain and misfortune.

I shot bullets of hatred out to our world, and I denied the powers of our universe.

I split my mind in four and crushed two pieces with a pestle and mortar! What else would stone be good for?

Today you shattered my diamond walls, and I let you back in.

I trust we have reconnected for a positive reason – when I discover what it is, I’ll be sure to let you know.

First.

I never thought we could get to a place like this.

Back then, I was bubbling over with anger because you hurt me and the pain cut deep.

Later on, I dipped my fingers into jealousy and flirted with crazy.

You had broken me, no sign of repair.

Today, I see your notifications, and I smile – we’re happy with this space.

It’s safe and ours.

I trust and believe that we will blossom forever.

Thank you.

You Only Die Once

We talk about life and how it is better to do something now rather than leave it until later because of YOLO.

But the truth is, you only die once!

You can love and become destroyed all within the same relationship.

A lack of consistency with earnings can push you into a lane riddled with broken glass, and you’ll stop walking because the end result is not worth the pain, especially as there is no guarantee of a better ending than where you currently stand.

Tears are temporary and dangerously futile – I cried over heartbreak, and my heart crumbled even more.

Who am I to ask for more when life suggests I need less until I fade away to nothingness.

Why are you waiting for something to happen for you to progress? Or rather, why don’t you trust that you are more than capable of committing to your goals and surpassing them.

Or maybe you are vanishing into the grey mist of confusion, and before you know it, you’re 84 and taking a leap into life.
