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 …

New Beginnings

Starting over

Never looking back

The past is the past

and nothing more

People…

Places…

Things…

All forgotten

All unnecessary

 

The only thing

that matters now

is New Beginnings

and looking forward

to what life has

to offer …

Who’s that Girl?

WOTL Prompt 9

Here is my response to this weeks Writing Outside the Lines Challenge Prompt 9 …

Who’s that Girl?

She had long brown braids

Cotton dress with a pinafore

to protect it

High topped lace up

leather shoes

Thick stockings that were

being gradually eaten by her shoes

Seems to be about twelve…

 

Who is that girl?

Why is she in my dreams over

and over and over?

I don’t recognize this dirt

road she is walking

I cannot she her face

because she is always

walking ahead of me

Walking with a purpose

and a brisk pace

 

In my dreams I follow her

but always awake before

she reaches her destination

Who is that girl?

What does she mean to me?

Why is she stalking my dreams?

Gypsy Child – Day 27 April PAD

Leave a comment

Gypsy Child

My life has

been a series

of travels…

adventures…

a gypsy of sorts

due to my

father’s profession

 

A new town…

a new home…

Every six months

or so

 

Attachments were

difficult due to this

rambling lifestyle

Connections either

made quickly and

just as quickly

forgotten

or…

not made at all

 

The lifestyle

shaped who I

am today…

An adult always

reluctant to commit…

to relate to anyone…

never to love

or be loved…

For fear the

past would

repeat itself

and be gone

before it could

really begin

 

Looking back…

my gypsy childhood

was my preparation…

a dress rehearsal…

for the inevitable

life of always

Being Alone…

Such A Girl!

Such a Girl!

Today has been one

of remembering…

days gone by…

Music reminding me

of what was…

what will never be

Again…

 

Emotions are high…

Tears…

I am such a

Girl sometimes

 

Really pisses me off!

Missing Pieces

Missing Pieces

Never underestimate me or

my ability to find out things

Things that have been hidden deeply

Things that are important

Things that matter in the grand

scheme of  life

Things that bring the

pieces together

Fill in the unanswered

Open up mysteries

Begin to fill in the puzzle

that will help understand

the past…

the pain…

Projection

Projection

I should be used
to this by now
This time of year
And…
Suddenly I can say
nor do anything right
Become one of the
Invisible
Treated as though
we are not friends
regardless of our
Past
I don't understand
why I must suffer
must be blamed
when I have done
nothing to warrant
this behavior

Why does your ego
always get in the way?

Release…

Release…

The Moon over my
shoulder is telling me…
It is Time

Turn around and 
face the future
Your past is just that

And...

Will never again
give you what
once was

Beat by beat
My Heart Knows

Breathe by breathe
My Brain Tells
me it is so

Moment by moment
Step by step
It is time…
The Moon tells
me it is so

Release it
Whispers...

Release and
Let...
   It...
     All...
        Go...

Reconnect

Reconnect

Life has a way of
bringing the past 
to life
 
Just when we 
least expect it
people move back
in and things are
as they were before
 
Never give up an
opportunity to
Reconnect…
 
You may not know
the reason, but
let things be

Sacred…

Sacred…

Uncertainty…
Trust issues
surfacing again
 
Why?
 
Someone once said,
“The Past is Prologue.”
which I find to be so true
 
The Past
creates issues of
Trust
which prove to
be today’s 
Reality
 
Is nothing 
Sacred?
