Broken Fences – Simplicity

Simplicity was what I had dreamed and sought after, but when achieved, that bittersweet taste doesn’t seem that beautiful.

We never know where we may be tomorrow, in a week, in a month, in a year. We never know.

Haven’t you ever wished you could just have anything you want? Whoever you want in this world, just to be by your side, to be yours?

I once had someone who I never thought I would meet, right by my side. He was intelligent, humorous, serious at the right times, sarcastic when it was just perfect. Outwardly he would scowl or smirk whenever he wanted. But when he smiled. It truly was a gem. His smile lit up whoever was around. It was contagious.

For that 1 year he was mine.

To be around him, I felt blessed. Even though he wasn’t exclusively mine, I gave thanks for our fateful encounter. I believe that it was raw fate that spun our paths together.

Is it not dreadful though? To have tasted and felt perfection; you would never imagine it to end because at that moment it didn’t seem to have a finish line.

Distances really do separate two people. Goals do pull the limits of two, far, far away. Spun around this globe that we live on a million times and more.

When will I see you again? In front of me. Smiling that lopsided grin at me. Laughing at my horribly stitched up jokes and stories.

Won’t you come back?





This memory was from a while back, but seeing as I have switched sites… I still wanted this piece to be here.

It’s always these unexpected moments that I never would think come that eventually do come knocking in the end. After seeing you like that I really can’t say anything else. You took my breath away. What with your smile, your surprised look of seeing me there, and most of all; the classy appearance you could pull off even with the simple cords that no one else would dare to sport. You amaze me and just make me wish that I could be someone great. To be someone that could somehow catch up or possibly surpass your abilities. I truly cannot fathom what it was about seeing you back there that I can’t stop thinking about.

The gray suit jacket with the brown padded elbows, the quirky yet stylish grape purple tie that I’m certain no one else would dare wear on a day like this and the orange high-tops anyone sane would not even touch the day of; oh, those black cords that I have loved seeing on you from Day One.

Am I possibly already in too deep. Or are all these emotions even lucid enough to think about? I think what I’m just glad in itself is that I met you, and where we stand as of now, I only thank those whom bring laughter and happiness into my life. I really have nothing else to ask for. Thankfulness is all I have.

Whom Shall I Fear

There’s much to fear in this world sometimes, death, sickness, the loss of a loved one, broken relationships, unemployment, poverty, ends not being met… and the list goes on. But holding on to our God and knowing all will be alright in the end gives us comfort even the best medicine cannot bring. Let us lay all our troubles down in front of Him.
