I Write to…

I am writing just to write, just to feel alive

to get out of the space in my head

and place my hopes and dreams firmly in reality;

Searching in all the wrong places…

Words of inspiration.

Quotes over pretty pictures.

Recommended self-help books.

I’m reading and absorbing,
reflecting and trying to be open.
Hoping to hear or read just the right something,

Alone and Lonely

I miss having a go-to person, a sounding board,
a confidant, someone to share my day with;
the big things and the minutiae.

I miss having someone who cares to hear it all,
who responds with advice or just a word of encouragement
who reciprocates and shares their day with me;
their hopes, their dreams, their struggles and frustrations.

I miss saying I love you, hearing I love you
snuggling up next to someone and feeling their warmth
feeling their heart beat;
feeling so completely comfortable in another’s presence.

I miss talking. Just talking about anything and everything
life, politics, future trips, raising kids, music, race,
good reads, life fears, the magic stuff, the scary stuff, the sweet stuff;
I miss having good conversation on a regular basis.

“Just because you’re alone doesn’t mean you have to be lonely”

But I am.

I.

Am.
