A to Z Challenge – L

The letter L …

I would say this is as important as food, clothes and shelter.  I have been lucky in my life to have been able to love and be loved both.  I admit that I often lead with my heart and that is not always the wisest thing to do.  However, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see those I care about happy and that is what it usually comes down to.  I love with a vengeance and find it very hard, if not impossible, to shut that off once it is there.  A couple of my past loves are still a very big part of my life.  I love them and want to see them happy.

I am not sure it is as strong on the flipside though and that is a place where I struggle with my depression.  I don’t always feel that love is returned as easily as given.  I think it is just my insecurities, but I just don’t feel it most of the time; it often just feels like going through the motions day to day.  Here again though that is a product of my depression.  But there are plenty of people and things for me to love and I do so with all my heart.  My L gratitude is love.

Impossible Dream

She was in love with him

Had been for years

But she knew she didn’t have a chance

It was a hopelessly impossible love

Sometimes late at night though

He would text her and “talk” for hours

He was miles away though

And now he found someone else

She was happy for him, truly

But she still had dreams at night

Of being in his arms held tight

And he grabs her face oh so gently

He kisses her for the first time

It is everything she thought it would be

But morning always comes

With a new day without him

And she still silently hopes

Someday it could be her with him
