Krazy A to Z Challenge – “Z”

ZI have decided to participate in a blogging event called “Blogging From A to Z Challenge”. Each day for the month of April I will write a post corresponding to a letter of the alphabet. As you may have guessed, today’s letter is “Z”.

Zero

There’s no way I can forget you when you’re not even gone.
I need space and some distance for me to move on.

For still every morning starts with you in my head.
Filled with memories and musings of things we have said.

It’s a battle, for sure, of the uphill kind.
Trying to erase you from my heart and my mind.

Again that might work or be simpler it’s true.
If my days weren’t filled of new moments with you.

But if your heart isn’t in it or it’s half and not whole,
That’s not good enough for my vulnerable soul.

So I urge you, I plead, help me break from this spell.
Let me go, walk away, say goodbye, wish me well.
I won’t go on my own, there’s no chance in hell.

Yourself

When you least expect it
something extraordinary happens.
It takes you by surprise
and gives you no time to question or mistrust it.
Like a scene in a movie
it just appears in front of your eyes.
One day you wake up and this is your new reality.
You say thank you, accepting it with open arms.
But there’s no one to thank, but you.
For having
patience,
courage,
strength,
perseverance.
You’re welcome.

X-ray

If I could X-ray your brain,
I’d be able to see the inner workings of your mind
and I could begin to understand everything
that is uniquely you.
Maybe I would even know
what you were
thinking
or feeling…
No, that’s silly.

Wishes

I wish for things that sometimes don’t come true.
Maybe they’re not supposed to.
Or maybe I’m wishing for the wrong things.
There’s a chance I shouldn’t be wishing at all.
Because I’m the only one with the power to grant them.
I just have to listen more carefully.

Voices

When I’m sad and looking down into a hole of despair,
I hear your voice in my head and it keeps me from jumping.

When I’m angry and bent on mass destruction,
I hear your voice in my head and it calms me.

When I worry I may be cold and broken,
I hear your voice in my head and remember you convinced me it’s ok to feel.

When I’m lonely and feeling like no one cares,
I hear your voice in my head and I know I am loved.

When I’m happy and the room seems filled with joy,
I hear your laughter alongside my own.

Up

If I was up among the clouds,
I could look down at the Earth
and know everything.

I wouldn’t have to be afraid
or worried
or unsure.

But I am tethered to the ground,
destined to fumble through life,
screwing things up at every turn.

Tin

The Tinman knew he had no heart.
His hollow chest was bare.

And without that one ingredient,
he thought he couldn’t care.

And so he kept his distance,
pretended not to feel.

Told everyone he had no depth,
no layers left to peel.

Until she dropped into his life,
with emotions left to spare.

And with that one ingredient,
he knew he’d always care.

Stay

if you walk away
you’ll only be heading
right into
the next thing you’re planning to leave

stay instead
and prove yourself wrong

Revelation

I had a revelation last night.

Something I’ve wanted for as long as I can remember will never be mine.

I should be devastated.

Maybe I am and I just don’t know it yet.

Or perhaps I’ve reached that final stage: acceptance.

It could also be that after so much time spent chasing it, I became resigned to living without it. I trained myself to lock away the desire in a part of my brain where it won’t cause me any more grief.

Only one thing bothers me now. If at some point I am miraculously faced with the chance to have it, will I even remember how to want it.

Quitting

There’s no sense in crying.
I’m not really one to pout.

Quitting is not an option.
Guess, I better figure it out.

So listen very carefully to what I’m about to say.

This life has not been perfect, but I might get close one day.
