Like the key to your heart

Like the key to your heart

She left without a note. It troubled my mind more than it ever did. It sounds cliche to say, that I still smell the scent of jasmine on the linens and the sound of her high heels in the kitchen –much like the last times she swore she had enough. She packed her toothbrush she left in the medicine cabinet to the right of the aspirin. And took her white hairbrush she leaves unreservedly on the nightstand, in which she brushes three times through the tangles in her hair, wraps in a messy bun only to wake in the morning with knots in her hair. She left with her jacket. Her undying obsession with lord and Taylor gets the best of my paycheck. The closet in disarray. Hangers on the floor. Much like my pride. But something is different on this occasion. But I am unable to decipher. I make my way to the foyer. And there goes all hope. Not only did she leave without a note, with her toothbrush and clothes. She left this time without a key….. –she left this time.

From shore to shore and peak to peak

When you close your eyes and imagine your wildest dreams. What is it that you seek? When the crash sets in and the release sets free, who is it that you will be. In the garden where you burry your sorrows, what will you have to hide? As for me, I am full of regret. But in the very sense of complacency it is this very stigma I find myself enraptured by. If I could envision just for the moment that when we set sail for our destination,can we depend on the fulfillment of our journey be destined by faith an not of ill fortune. But within our best wishes and best of intensions we are able to place not only our hears but our mindset toward this journey. And all the while, ill plan to forgive myself, to regret regets, and stand beside myself when I know that no one is able. The key to moving forward in this journey is about, is trusting yourself and your instincts. Though wherever life will lead you, wether it be by guided light or a sense of willingness to walk the path alone. In the midst of the chaos, find yourself, trust your judgment and you shall not be lead askew.
