I tried not to disturb you
I couldn’t
Even the house
Seemed false to me
But most unsettling
Was that every room was haunted by ghosts of memories
In the glare of all things golden
I pricked up my ears
but there was nothing but the same silence
One of my friends died in the past few days and It has really taken a toll on me

I look at you, and I remember all the things you put me through
I look at you, and I remember all the things that we would do
I look at you, and you look away
I look at you, and I realize that I'll have to live another day
What do you do when your "ex" breaks up with you through text and says, "I'm not ready for this. I still like you, but I am not ready." ?

Don't call me the "quiet kid" if you don't know my story
Don't call me the "good girl" if you don't know who has hurt me
Don't call me "happy" if you don't know how many tears I am holding back
Don't call me the "tough girl" if you don't know what made me that way

Don't call me...

Did you know that every word you speak is like a knife plunging into my heart
Did you know that every time you look into my eyes I relive the bad moments over and over
Did you know that every single time you walk away I want you to come back
Did you know that you're breaking me?

The sand shifts beneath your feet,
Your heart relaxes to a quiet beat,
The waters seem to breathe day and night,
Close your eyes take it in do not fight,
The wind satisfies your soul,
Just relax now you've played your role,
Touch the sand now scoop it up,
Hold it in your hands and form a cup,
Now let it seep through towards the sandy ground,
Your soul was lost but now its found,
The weather you desire will come your way,
Just stand closer to the bay,
Soon life will be eternal for you and me,
Look beyond the ocean and tell me what you see.

There is a point in everyone's life when you have to make a decision of whether you want to let go or hold on longer.
If you hold on, you will only get hurt more
But if you let go, you have to have the constant anxiety of
"Did I make the right decision?" "What did I do?!"
This world we live in has changed us so much that we never know what is right from wrong anymore
Then comes the time when we have to WAKE UP
That is when we know the true reality.....
Not much of a poem but it is a topic that I just thought about...

Standing at the edge of the cliff
I look down and see the waves crashing into the rocks
I remember everything that happened
And I let go...
Always remember to never put yourself in danger just because someone makes you feel like you should! I love you all, have a great day! :)
