I Think I’m Alone Now

She put the car into forward and pulled down the street.  Turning the corner, she headed for the highway.  She was stressed and so frustrated.  She hit the city limits and accelerated to 55 MPH.  Looking ahead of her there was only one car in the distance and no cars in the rearview mirror.  She took a deep breath and let out a blood curdling scream for as loud and as long as she could.  Then she smiled.

It wasn’t a big smile, just the smallest hint of one hitting the corner of her mouth.  She was finally free.  It had been a frustrating day with him moving out, but it was done and over and she had the keys back to her house… she could finally relax and not feel so alone while with people who ignored her.  She could find a little peace and solitude in the time she was alone now.  Not conflict and frustrations.

She turned the car around at the next turn and drove back into town.  She would grab a coffee at the local shop and then go to her home and for the first time in a long time, feel at peace.

Mumbles … Rue

Rue… regret.  I have no regret, but he might.  I am in a transition and will not be writing this weekend (which is why I am posting so much right now)  I might have some time to read but that remains to be seen.  Life is complicated and I need t simplify things for my own peace of mind.  I promise to come back next week… I need to write and will be doing so over the weekend too as usual.  I just won’t be at a place to post.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.  May you all find the peace you need without a lot of trouble in the way.  Thanks for sticking with me.

Time

Now is not the time to be meek

Find my backbone

Become the shark

Do all I can to be strong

I need my strength to face this day

Big plans on the horizon

Freedom is within my grasp

I just need to believe

Although this wont be easy

It Is what needs to be done

My peace of mind

And my basic happiness

Are on the line

No turning back now

The time has come

A Moment

I wish I had a moment

Just for a quiet repose

No pressures

No judgement

No endless thoughts

Perhaps today

Just for a short time

I can take a deep breath

And find a calm inside

A moment of tranquility

Where I can relax

Without the stresses

I face everyday

Without the pain

My body inflicts

Without being haunted

By my yesterdays

… perhaps for a moment

Maybe

are you sure

do you really

believe that lie

what he said

same old story

likely won’t change

stand up tall

believe in yourself

face the truth

he doesn’t care

he is lost

you have hope

future looks clear

maybe new love

maybe another dream

maybe at peace

finally freed heart

Need New Treads?

I am just not right

I feel a little off

I need to jumpstart my heart

To get my love on track

Tighten up the muscles

To lose a little fat

Calibrate my brain

To stop thinking of him

And basically overhaul it all

To reach a peaceful place

A World Beyond The Window

She stares out the window

Lost in a dream

Trying to find solutions

To life’s inequality.

A pensive look

Upon her face

She hopes for peace

And an end to hate.

She knows it will be

A long uphill climb

But the reward will be worth it

No more violence in the street

She stares out the window

Lost in a dream…

A to Z Challenge – E

The letter E…

I am sitting in my chair suddenly realizing that this is (was, technically since it is after midnight here) Monday.  I am so mixed up with my days right now… anyway.  I have a home (more on that at a later date) but I have a much larger home in the fact that I am an Earthling.  No, I am not going to talk about extra-terrestrials or spaceships.  I am talking about all of us sharing one home planet Earth.  With this pandemic that is spreading worldwide it has shown what a large community we can actually be seen as.  Each nation is a house and we are all in the same neighborhood.  I feel this could be a time to learn more about working together.  I know I have heard the countries having reached their peak and are recovering are sharing PPE and ventilators.  This planet has sustained life for a lot of years.  And I would kind of like to see it continue doing so for a long while.  We can work together; we can put the weapons down.  I am grateful to be standing on planet Earth.
