Apples Again

With today being Mother’s Day the ex and T came for lunch bringing with them flowers, a gift card for Amazon and chicken. Yummy is all I can say and am going to spend the gift card after I finish here.

The ex offered to buy my dessert and off T went with him.

Not sure what was going on at the top of the stairs (those who saw at the top of the hills before; that was an autocorrect from my phone) when suddenly I hear T.

It’s not rocket science! 

I burst out laughing and snorted. Wonder where T gets that one from?

***I asked what had caused him to make that statement and his father could not figure out the lock. On a door that he was the last one through and had not locked. At least he owns his blondeness.

Why Care?

Heart on Sleeve
Tears in Eyes
Rain
Thunder Overhead
Lightening Streaks
Crack
Boom
Just like myself
falling away
falling down
lost in the rabbit hole
afraid
knew that this would happen
pull knees close
head down
see not the pain
the fear
that fills these eyes
go away
like you promised never to do
leave me behind
broken
yet again
for foolishly believing
that we would always be friends.
I am closed.
I am reserved.
There are reasons that it takes me so long
to warm up
open up
to let you deep within
for everyone leaves me
even when they whisper promises
promises that they won’t
promises that forever they will hold my hand
they will always be
there…..
I love wholeheartedly.
I have no middle ground.
When I open up
When I let you in
When I lay bare my soul before you
it is because I believe(d)
those tender words
that you would be different
that you would never leave.
