Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

 

Sometimes a dip in the pool at midnight is the perfect cure for a busy mind. I wish I was back in Florida where I can have some tranquil pool time. This picture was taken last year during my Florida vacation. We were at a hotel in Fort Lauderdale. It was a bitter sweet time period for me because even though I was having a blast on vacation, my life back home wasn’t so perfect. Sometimes being in a solitary position is not always a bad thing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

I chose this picture as this weeks photo challenge because I feel the beach is the perfect example of being near and far. Being on the shore and entering the water as it hits across the shore line gives us the feeling of being so near, in fact, apart of the ocean; but being that the ocean is so vast and expansive, we have no idea how far it goes from that small part we are in. Having the ocean water ripple threw my toes is such an easing and freeing feeling that I can hardly put into words. I absolutely love looking out into the endless water and seeing the sun being swallowed by it while the birds fly back and forth threw the sky.

I Stand Alone

I sit and wait…
Wait for my heartache to end.
Wait for the days to finish.
I sit and dream…
Dream of a better me.
Dream of a different you.
I sit and think…
Think of how i let this happen.
Think of a way to move on.
I sit and cry…
Cry because I love you.
Cry to release my pain.
I sit and beg…
Beg for you to change.
Beg for what I deserve.
I sit and watch…
Watch you apologize for your mistakes.
Watch you grovel in your tears.
I sit and listen…
Listen to your plea.
Listen to why I should stay.
I sit and feel…
Feel my heart breaking in my chest.
Feel the sadness and regret in your voice.
I sit and decide…
Decide to live for myself.
Decide to stop fighting for nothing.
I stand up and say.
Say f*ck you for taking the best of me.
Say screw you for giving up on me.

I stand alone…
