Too Much – Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 32

2 Comments

Prompt for the week of 3/13/16

“If you could go back and change just one thing about your life, would you? and if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? or break the heart of another? would you choose an entirely different path? or would you change just one thing? just one moment – one moment that you always wanted back.”
~ Lucas Scott

Too Much

I have always been

the one to wear my

heart on my sleeve

The one who

cared too much…

loved too much…

became involved

more than others

in my life

 

I have tried over

and over again not

to care…

to love…

to become involved…

but it seems my

nature to do so

 

I want to go

back in time

And

be the hard one…

the cold one…

the one who does

the hurting not

the one being hurt

 

My life would have

taken so many

different turns

so many different

paths

Maybe leading

to ultimate loneliness

But …

Keeping me from

being used…

being broken…

being ignored…

being an after thought

 

I would be a

different person

had I not given so

much more than

I ever received…

Better …

Worse …

Who knows …

Losses

Secrets continue

She is pushed

further and

further away

 

What was once

caring and concern

is quickly becoming

cold indifference

 

Is everything lost?

Where Do They Go?

Where Do They Go?

Letting go and
Moving on are
a part of life…
a part of growing…
a part of changing…
a part of becoming…
 
But…
 
Where do all those 
feelings go when in
this process you 
realize you no longer
care and the feelings
are gone?
 
Do they just disappear
like a puff of smoke 
on the four winds?
 
Do they find some
deep dark recess in your
heart, mind, or soul
to hide in waiting to
surface when we least
expect to be reminded
of the pain but also
the good things?
 
Life goes on 
And…
Is a Mystery…

Too Long…

Too Long…
Forever giving more
than I receive
 
People taking for granted
I will always
be there for them…
support them…
agree with them…
 
No more…
I refuse to be the
only one doing 
all the work to
maintain a
friendship…
relationship…
 
Now is the time
to Stop…
Re-evaluate…
And…
Focus on  myself
 
Focus on those
who care and give
me as much as
I give them
 
Time…
To look ahead
Leave the past behind
Use my strength for me
 
And…
 
Forget those who
don’t matter
Who never really
mattered
 
Who only sought
me out for their
own wants and needs
Never considering 
me for me
But…
What they wanted
from me

Rain Down

Low and sweet
Your soul rains
down on mine
Bringing a music
only we can hear

Someday…

Someday…
Life will be
Different
Secrets will be
Revealed
Trust will be
the Norm
Not…
the hoped for
 
Someday…
You and I
will not hide
from each other
 
Someday…
You and I 
will not ignore
what we feel
 
But…
 
Embrace our
friendship openly

“… I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.”
~ Rumi ~
 

The Mirror

I am who I am
Because of you
 
There is nothing
I could possibly
say to you…
give to you…
do for you…
to express
my feelings…
my gratitude…
my caring…
for who you 
are to me
for what you
have done to 
make me … Me
 
Find a quiet place…
A peaceful time…
and
look at you in a mirror
 
What you see is
what I see
The person in my
life I could never
be without
 
And…
 
Smile because
you are
Loved…
