Used To

Poetry

I used to just wait for You

To show me my next move

what step to take

To give me strength

Helpless and reaching

For freedom to embrace

Grace to get through

A glimmer of something new

But not anymore

Now I’m checking every door!

Ready

Poetry

I wanted so badly to be wanted and loved

That I readily accepted a lie

And now all this wasted time later

I’m still having to say good bye

I don’t wanna waste my time anymore

Don’t want to live in a fantasy

Don’t want to keep running to you

When I know in the end we’ll both leave

I’m ready to accept something real

Ready for attraction, kindness and decency

No more faking or playing, no hiding

Ready for some new company

Sentencing

Poetry

I am in the throws of judgement

Lord have mercy

I feel their glares, their fiery eyes

Their pity stares as they pass me by

I’m sure I’m deserving of plenty pain

But I’ll ask you be merciful

Open this road, let me go on my way

I’m ready for brand new again

I’ve over worn my stay

I’m letting it all go

It was never mine anyway.
