The wasted years — four years of my life
Demons of mind, battles I'd to strive
The poor choices and all my hidden fears
The mess of my life and unseen tears

Blue Eyes begin to strain and heart starts to race
Can't even face family, friends and a crowded place
Shivering body and a bunch of crazy thoughts
Tightened chest and heavy breathe, the drought  I'd fought

Finally, it's all  over wishing a happy new year
It's the end of 2018, the month of December
2019 — a new beginning I've been waiting for
2019 — a new beginning  I've been waiting for

Writing a new book...
With new characters...
And new story line...
I have been fooling myself...
Holding on to an older book...
With past characters...
Which have already wrote new chapters...
Without me...
May be it’s time for me be part of a new book...
And not the rusty old book...
Even though the rusty old book was once my life...
Let you be reference for my new one...
Not my griefs or broken promises...

Send me back to where I belong
Cut the wings you made of feather
I cannot live where I feel wrong
I’ll never stand this change of weather

Make me feel good once again
Let the aching leave my head
I feel the dribbling down my chin
While trying to sleep in my so-called bed.

Warm Summer Day, 2018
Sun on our backs, Wind in my hair
Sweet tea kisses, Sunshine smiles
Ed Sheeran and Slow dances
Twinkling blue eyes, My glimmering brown
What goes around comes back around

Hot Summer Night, 2019
Piercing words, Thorns sticking out
Waterfall tears, Red hot anger
Secrets and lies coming to the light
Your true colors showing as bright as the 4th of July
Cutting you completely out of my life
This is two memories put into one story formed into a poem about a nine year chapter of my life that I'm finally finished writing.

someday, someone's going to come along
and set a fire within my
heart that can't be put out.
someday someone's going to
restore this broken heart.

someday, someone's going to
walk me down the aisle.
some day, someone's going to give
me the world.

someday, someone's going
to give me a reason to say
"i love you" and mean it.

someday, someone's
going to give me a new beginning
and make this heart
alive again.

What was I thinking wasting my time with you
I can’t wait to shed my skin
I can’t wait to give to it to the wind
You ****** my soul and left me thin
I can’t wait to shed my skin
What was I thinking letting you in
You took my heart and left my head to spin
I can’t wait to shed my skin
Seventeen years wasted, gone like the wind
Just like a scorpion it hurts, when you sting
I can’t wait to shed my skin
No more tears I won’t give in
You’re a Narcissist, I won’t let u win
I just can’t wait to shed my skin
Filled with feelings of misgiving
I won't fall for your gas-lighting
God please help me to shed me skin
I Pray, I Pray for a new beginning

The Former
and
The Latter
aren't the ones that
Matter
they're both in the past
and the past is gone
and it's never returning
...
Don't cling to people from your past
Just leave them behind
Just As They Did
...

Window seat with a front yard view
A row of sunflowers and two oak trees surrounded by  perfect green grass
Inside a white fence making the backdrop beautiful on a dark day
The pain it caused with each trip you made
The reality that sit in when I seen your things packed in that car
I wanted to yell for you to stay
Fought the need to pull you close and tell you we can make everything ok
Thought of asking if I go too
I wanted to cry
I wanted to do something
But I didn't
I did none of those things
Not even walk outside to say bye or put my hand up to wave
I just sat there and watched the darkness follow you away
