NOTHINGNESS….

Have you ever noticed

That the worst way

To miss someone

Is when they are

Right beside you

And yet you

Can never have them…

 

When the moment

You can’t feel them

Under you fingertips

You miss them?

 

Have you ever wondered

Which hurts the most:

Saying something and wishing

You had not, or

Saying nothing and wishing you had?

 

I guess the most important things,

Are the hardest things to say.

There are the things

You get ashamed of

Because words diminish them,

Words shrink things

That seemed timeless

When they were in your head…

To no more than living size

When they are brought out.

 

Don’t be afraid

To tell someone

You love them

If you do, they might break your heart

But if you don’t

You might break theirs.

 

Have you ever decided

Not to become a couple

Because you were

So afraid of losing

What you already had

With that person?

 

Your heart decides

Who it likes

And who it doesn’t.

You can’t tell your heart

What to do.

It does it on its own… when you least suspect it,

Or even when

You don’t want it to.

 

Have you ever wanted

To love someone

With everything you had,

But that other person

Was too afraid to let you?

 

Too many of us stay walled

Because we are too afraid

To care too much…

For fear that the other

Person does not care as much,

Or not at all.

 

Have you ever loved someone

And they had absolutely

No idea whatsoever?

Or fell for your best friend

In the entire world,

And then sat around

And watched him fall for someone else?

 

Have you ever denied your

Feelings for someone

Because your fear of rejection

Was too hard to handle?

Or have you cast aside

Your feelings because you

Thought things

Were impossible?

 

We tell lies when we are afraid…

Afraid of what we don’t know,

Afraid of what others will think,

Afraid of what will be found out about us.

But everytime we tell a lie…..

The thing we fear grows stronger.

 

Life is all about risks

And it requires you to jump.

Don’t be a person

Who has to look back

And wonder what s/he would have,

Or could have had.

 

Sometimes life offers no 2nd chance,

No one waits forever so…..

Cherish the past,

It made you what you are.

Treasure the present,

It’s a timeless gift.

Pray for the future,

It’s where hopes are fulfilled

And dreams become reality.
