Smiling Eyes

You’re playing with your friends. Maybe you’re playing by yourself. Your room is packed with all sorts of toys that feed your evergrowing imagination. I’m far away, on a vacation, or sick at home in bed. My mind ponders on what you’re doing, where you are. I should be focusing on myself, enjoying my time…

Turn Around

There’s nothing I can say to keep you from taking those steps . Your shoes are clomping loudly as you stomp down the sidewalk. I say a silent prayer as I watch you huff along the path. You’re so angry and upset. Tears are flooding your eyes. Was there more I could’ve said ? No….

Slip of a Moment in Time

Watching the colors dance across the this blank canvas, I can see the transformation taking place. As the sun sinks lower and lower,the clouds morph from cottonball white into shades of neon pink and orange.                I can see them billow out at the ends, as if trying to…

All Stand Still 

We look towards the towering buildings. The lights continue to dance. Each formation takes a different shape. Some are ballet dancers, pirouetting in and out of slamming shadows shaped like doors. Others are flashing and fluttering on and off so quickly, it’s easy to miss the changing of colors. Snow flakes flutter into our visage….

The Night of the Porch Party 

There’s a yellow house on the hill. This yellow house has a wrap around porch. The wrap around porch hosts many parties.  These parties keep the house company and forge an amiable and welcoming atmosphere for all who join in. The owners keep the yellow house kept and warm, filling her with both great people…

Even in The Daylight

Daylight breaks the darkness outside of these six foot windows. The sky lightens slowly,  shifting from a hard deep navy to a soft shallow baby blue. The birds are chirping,  reminding me that it’s getting further into morning. I yearn to go elsewhere but now, for the time being, this is where I have to…

When The Stubborn Branch Won’t Bend …

   There’s nothing. Nothing. You’re set in your ways. Not the wisdom that grows in time, nor the healing waters of Lordes can reach your stone soul. You utter the same words, complaints about the same situations you place yourself in. Yet, you plead for pity, while  you shove the helpers far from your needy…

Clip. Clip. Silence.

There’s no answering machine plugged in. I cut the cords, snipped the telephone lines. All I’m trying to do is let you go. I want to have you in my life but it can’t stay the way it is now. I can’t keep ignoring that you refuse to meet me halfway in all situations and…

About-Face

I remember when you left for the first time. I was ten years old. I had to call the ambulance and watch you unconscious and vulnerable. For the first time, I saw you, completely helpless. I ran up to my room and hugged my oversized ragdoll. I cried into the flowery bonnet, hugging the doll…

Pacifying Panic

I don’t want to think anymore. As I watch the walls close in and the sounds fade to white noise, I can tell you’re questioning what’s going on inside my mind. Still, with the madness inching outward, grappling for you, you hold me still as I’m uncontrollably shaking in your grasp. You change the subject,…

Stone. Cold. Silence.

The whispering echoes reverberated amongst the wide room   Piano keys softly chimed accompanied by baritone singing   Outside that room the tranquil sounds are muffled with laughter and raucous coughing   Soft swishing sounds and a gust of breeze greet you at the doors and yelling interrupts your calm   Instantly, there’s squirrels chattering,…

Remember When?

    Amid the falling snow a mystery unlocked in her mind.   Sounds of baseballs flying through air and soccer balls too.   Amid the gentle burn of hot chocolate the memories begin to entwine with the sweet taste.   Laughter echoes, footprints that will never cover no matter the volume of snowfall or…

Heart Weighed Like a Stone

Heart Weighed Like a Stone Winter’s wind is seemingly whipping through me. The bright light from the snow’s reflection is too much for my tired eyes. Although the view is magical, the reality is dismal. As ice crystals soar past, I catch a glimpse of isolated light. My train of thought is broken. I’m somewhere…

Night/Day

  It’s the end of day and I’m thinking of things to do. Why do I bother when everything is dull in this place? It seems that as of late, there’s always someone at blame. In this household, there is a messed up puzzle. Everyone is angry and disheveled. Is it so wrong to want…

The Upside to Gravity

  Back flat on the mattress and my heart is pounding. I know it’s not a heart attack simply because this has been a frequent re occurrence and I’m still remaining. I’m here but sometimes barely. My reality is frightful at times because I’m not always in the actual state of so called “reality.” I…

Let What’s Been Done Be Finished

Forgiven but you’re not forgotten because you just won’t let it die. Why are you still contacting me and pretending like you’re concerned?! I wish you could just realize that I don’t love you anymore. You had your chance and you blew it. You took all that I told you and let it into the…

Worthy

It was two years ago that I let you down greatly. You tried to forgive me but eventually you gave up. I tried to make it up to you. I tried to be friends but it was too much and the friendship ended. You’ve taught me a great deal about life and showed me I…

Early Morning Inspiration~BrittnyLee aka DawningCreativity

I can’t believe I’ve forgotten this. It’s been so long since I’ve fallen into this hole. It’s been so good that I’ve forgotten what it feels like to be a kid. I’ve forgotten who I used to be. I’ve pushed her aside for so long, running away from who I was and am. I am…

Stone Wall

You’ve made me. Now I am breaking me so I can start all over again. I know why it is that I cry and cry and never understand. Too many times I’ve watched your car pull out of its secure space to the great unknown. You’re gone 6 days out of the week and I…

“Addiction”~BrittnyLee

  When it happens upon me in the still of the night Or in the brightness of the day As the rain falls Or when the ice freezes I have to find my quiet place I have to make sense of these words in my head These images These little phantoms of a memory? Or…
