As she turned off the old lamp she caught a glimpse of her tired eyes staring back from the mirror her life flashes before her eyes lifes regrets fill her heart her once strong words no longer carry their weight as she closes her eyes for another long empty night the final cold winter sets deep within her bones
the words twist and turn inside of her clawing at her soul beating down her walls slowly moving through her veins waiting to be released into the unknown of this vast space ready to come alive amongst the stars to be splattered upon these once empty pages
There are times in your life, that you sit back and think wow. You think about all the things you survived, when at a time you didn’t think you could. You think about the heart breaks, the ups and downs, the dark rainy days, the beautiful sunny ones and every day in between. You think about how awkward you’ve felt in your own skin over the years and at many points throughout your life. You think about what could have been, what should have been and what will be. You think about all the dreams you gave up on, about all the ones you still want and strive for. You think about the friends you’ve made, and how they’ve shaped you into a part of who you are. The ones you’ve lost and the ones who have drifted. All making a difference, in some way. You think of how time moves so quickly and it’s hard to keep up at times. Hard to hold on, when you feel your hanging from the edge of the earth.
And then you think, of how small we actually are in this vast space. How insignificant most things are. How much we could change just by starting with the person in the mirror. You think about what truly matters in this world, in this life.
Love one another but most importantly, love yourself. It all starts there.
It’s the clouds at times that remind me of you. The sun, the moon. The wind. The here and now. The past. Almost everything. Sometimes, there just aren’t enough words. But, you’re still gone and nothing can change that.
hush baby please don’t say a word let the secrets of the night fill you quietness falls upon my lips the bitter sweetness of this moment is all I can taste curtains closed darkness finally consumes me and the dreams they come one by one I allow the silence to have its space between these four walls hush now don’t say a word
