A Heart that Listens

Imagine for a moment, A single moment in time, When all the distractions And nonsense noise, Spontaneously stopped, Even the birds are silent. Imagine that atmosphere, We see and nothing said, All that’s been muffled Has now taken on this life. Would we notice that lady crying, Would we help the man in pain, How much more could we do How much more we would gain. We would see the elderly struggling, We would see her sudden change We would watch his self distraction, And just maybe offer a hand to hold. Maybe We’d hug fellow strangers, Maybe We’d smile … Continue reading A Heart that Listens

Day Two

Prompt: Do you need solitude? Like flowers need the rain to grow! I didn’t realize this necessity until recently, when I truly began discovering myself. Growing up, when I was in trouble, my mother would send me to my room, or to sit on the steps. Truth be told, and thank God she didn’t know this, I didn’t mind! Nooooo, I didn’t misbehave to intentionally isolate myself. A few years ago, I was reading about Personality types, types of people, and such ways that help one identify who he or she is. I tested to be an INFJ, commonly Introverted, … Continue reading Day Two

This Picture

I had lost thirteen pounds in two weeks. I was rudely awakened by the general consensus regarding others and my need to talk (they didn’t hear me!). I was isolated from a support system, most friends, professional help, and usually the general public. My anxiety astronomically skyrocketed because there was too much unknown. Not only that but there was absolutely NO consistency! I had terrible stomach pains, didn’t sleep much, drank entirely too much coffee…. and made myself feel crazy while “waiting”. The one ray of hope I THOUGHT I had, …. turned out to be a wolf in sheeps clothing. This was the life I had chosen for myself, a life most would’ve abandoned way sooner.

I’m not in that particular “time” any longer, though the aftermath lingers. Being single feels super lonely. I just invested 14 months submitting to a dominant… Now, if you’re not familiar with this lifestyle, please Google it. Needless to say, the submission is completely voluntary because in return, her needs (both in and outside the bedroom) are met. That’s how it’s “suppose” to happen.

Being single means alone… Sleeping, out to eat, nights, weekends, Netflix and Chill, every minute. Sure it’s healthy to be content with being alone. It’s necessary for such time, as well. Trust me, I understand that. There were too many instances over this time when I felt I should’ve had my boyfriend and I didn’t. He wasn’t there to hold me when I didn’t feel good. He wasn’t there to give me a hug when life felt too overwhelming. He wasn’t there to talk and work out our confrontations. He just wasn’t present.

With all of that being said, this was and is the man who’s had the greatest place in my heart. I looked for hope with us. I looked for change, for improvement. I felt that if I saw growth, we were headed in the right direction.

What direction was that?… And this is the error in this whole mess… The direction towards future tense picture of us. He and I were always talking about what we can do now to get to where we want to be. Now, that sounds like what a serious couple should be doing right? That’s something most couples do, and it should be a good sign… But, here’s the problem… Our current life wasn’t how we wanted it, so our goals were rather short term… We were working on this together… Hell, I thought we were even good as to being on the same page! This picture of us was constantly front and center! It’s how we always did it.

The beginning of this year, all that I knew life to be for him and I stopped… Abruptly…

And I wasn’t ready.

To Be Free 🕊

    I have this body, and I live this human form. I eat to keep others happy, and I sleep as well as I can. I do my best to obey the laws, keep bills paid, and provide for my beautiful daughters. I manage appointments, find necessary recourses, prepare meals, and try to have relationships with others. All who exist do the same things, to a degree.  As a species, this is how I live, how others see me.

They are the outside, looking in.  Continue reading “To Be Free 🕊”
