my mistakes

"my mistakes"
I woke up today smiling to the early morning never realizing the mistakes to come, never seeing the warnings to and from just forgetting and waking again hoping today brings another one just another one like this. I forget to miss the day and see the point of not knowing what to miss then somewhere I find myself smiling to the early forming day even when the dim glow of the softly lit crescent in the sky drips on only one side of my face, even when realizing those mistakes have come and gone and some still here I still just find myself here with sickness in my stomach smiling because today I woke up smiling to the early morning never realizing my mistakes to come.

it was a beautiful day

"it was a beautiful day"
We locked eyes in that one beautiful moment and in an instant melted the rest of the world away and for that, it was a beautiful day. Clouds hung heavy overhead and gray seemed every which way but in that moment it was a beautiful day; we forgot about the icy roads and the snowy sidewalks, the bitter cold and the small sharp rocks, we forgot and found the day. Never noticed the cold breath lingering before our faces or the winter hues in between the spaces. Never noticed for your eyes seemed to feel me on the inside tasting my very core salivating on every flavor and in that moment we lost everything just to exist inside each other's eyes.

Separating Line

"Separating Line"
The sky is oh so gray today and the hills so white its hard to find their separating line. It all hangs oh so low like milk poured from the sky, like white sheets draped over their separating line. Just a moment of pure blended shades of gray forever rubbed into obscurity behind those times whom have separating lines.
