Find the Time

No one is at fault but me

I have fallen behind you see

Too many exhausted hours

Never any time to smell the flowers

I need to kind of unwind

And then I could maybe find

A moment of two for me

Where I would sit under a tree

Just to let me mind wander

My time I won’t squander

In an effort to catch up again

This is where it shall begin

Word by word and line by line

I will try to write words that are fine

But my comments will be brief

And I breathe a sigh of relief

As I read your words so sweet

And I prop up my tired feet

So here we go again

Let the catch up process begin

Silent Questions

The awkward silence that follows
My sincere I love you…
The awkward silence eats me alive
Did I do something wrong…
The awkward silence slowly chokes me
Should I have never said a word…
The awkward silence fills me with anxiety
It has to be my fault…
The awkward silence forces me to think
You never loved me to begin with….
