Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be

Us

The inside jokes

The sideways grins

Knowing that

It’s just ‘our’ thing

Our lazy nights

And favorite foods

Knowing that

It’s me and you

Taking road trips

Planning date nights

Knowing that

It’s our time

You’re my bestie

As I am to you

Knowing that

My forever’s with you

It’s just ‘our’ thing

It’s me and you

It’s our time

You’re my dream come true.

You Never Know

I never would have picked you

You never would have picked me

We were both looking for something

Neither one of us could see

I never knew this could happen

You never thought it would again

Being with someone who makes you happy

Everyday spent with your best friend

I never knew I was incomplete

You didn’t know what was missing

Waking up isn’t the same without you

Your lips were made for kissing me

I can’t see my life without you

You don’t say it but you feel the same

I’m going to love you forever

Even after you change my last name.

Half-mast

The past is the past, but it’s hard not to carry it into your future. Just because someone did you wrong in a certain situation doesn’t mean a new person, in a similar situation, is going to do you wrong the same way. That’s what’s hard – dealing with the triggers. Noticing those red flags from before, the ones you should have seen. But now, however, they might be white flags – hell, they might not even be flags at all. They could be nothing, but our triggers might disagree and say they could be everything.

I know it’s hard not to panic when you care for someone. I know it’s hard to talk your mind out of thinking the worst. But try. Try with everything you have. Because the alarms that go off when you see those red flags could be a reason the person you care about starts having red flags about you.

Your overthinking could sabotage your current situation. You’re building something up in your mind based on what someone else did – not what this person is doing. This person isn’t that person. He isn’t him. You aren’t the same person you were back then. If he’s worth it, he will see that. If not, as hard as it hurts, it just isn’t meant to be.

So breathe. Put your mind at ease. Allow yourself a chance at happiness. Forget the flags. Your past is the past. Don’t let it destroy your future.

REWARD

His scent on her clothes
His warmth on her skin
Her smile still present
From the playfulness

She doesn’t have to worry
No questions to ask
Boasting his affection
Every chance he can get

Something is blooming
Natural and unexpected
There’s no hesitation
No need for second-guessing

He’s sincere and caring
No reason to run from this –
Friendship mixed with passion
Excitement and childishness

No it won’t be easy
But it’s easy right now
In this generation
We found each other, somehow

And I can’t predict the future
I don’t know he won’t break me
But no matter what happens
He’s a risk worth taking.

Vice

Old habits die hard

Because they never die at all.

And unfortunately,

You’re habitual.

I do it on purpose

To remind me of the pain.

And every time it happens

I wish it never would again.

Old habits die hard

Because they never die at all

When I reach for the phone

You’re the one I call.

And you always answer

Even when you shouldn’t

And every time you do

My God, I wish you wouldn’t.

Old habits die hard

Because they never die at all

And even when I feel nothing

You’re habitual.
