December

hi friends!  i hope you all had a magical thanksgiving.  mine was great…i feel like i’m 5 lbs heavier than i was last week!!  blegh!! anyways, i usually prefer to be more impersonal here, but i don’t have much to write about today, so i decided to post an entry from my journal:

a year ago [December]…

paths diverged,
opportunity knocked,
once…twice…
again & again…
but she turned it away.
because of
fear,
selfishness,
foolishness.

her heart needed rest,
her mind, comfort.
a sabbatical was taken,
but not in the wisest of ways.

bonds remained,
but walls were built
around the heart she had clinged to.

——

present day [December]…

in autumn she grew a spine
and finally spoke
a little too late.

his heart still wanders,
while hers stands still.
she is reminded of those months…
the colors &
smells &
chats &
laughs &
parties &
feelings &
what if’s &
the regret.

a few tears and the biting of a tongue…
more silence than anything.
she yearns to change,
to evolve,
to be in his eyes once more.

she’d take a beating a thousand times
to have the chance to turn things around.

but if winter is death,
then spring means change.
hope always glows,
and peace comes with the dawn.
