a bleeding heart.

I sit alone in a dark room.  I wonder what would have happened if I had taken the chance.  Had I jumped at the opportunity, would my life be different?  I stayed.  I chose otherwise.  Pushing my heart’s desire back, I thought I made the right choice.

Years passed.  I read the books and memorized the visuals.  I recall every feeling I had when the words charred my being.  I didn’t look back.  I didn’t think this day would come.  Rising to the occasion, I consciously decided that you were mine.  My past, present and future.  I needed no advice to steer my direction.  You spoke in a lullaby that soothed my broken pieces.

Today I stand tall, filled with chaos.  I strive for much more than I dreamt.  There were bumps along my path which I believed to be a sign.  Something to show me direction.  Understanding that one light was all that I required, that light is mine.
