A Walk In My Shoes Excerpt


Thoughtless

“. . .Blown away in the wind Twirling in circles in the world it’s in. Bond with chains and shackles Wanting to be free. Face to the ground down on my knees

. . .Set me free I beg of thee. I ignore my thoughts as they wonder away. Flowing straight to the heart like a dart. . . Oh! On this rainy day.”

I’m Sorry

You said you were different, and to think, I believed you.

I had to be blind and out of my mind to play this fool. Break up and make up is the name of the game.

“I’m sorry, Baby. I’ll never do it again believe me I’ve changed. I’ll prove it to you if you give me a chance. You just can’t give up on us now, you just can’t. Not after all we’ve been through, smooth valleys and hard times. If you say it don’t matter you’ll be lying. Think about it, Baby, the ups, the downs. What about the love we shared does it mean anything right now?”

“I’m sorry, Honey. I’ve been holding on too long. You know as well as I know what you did was wrong. If the good outweigh the bad, we just might make it, but what you did I just can’t seem to shake it. Don’t get me wrong we can always be friends. You put me through too much, where do I begin? Tell me, if the shoe was on the other foot, and you were stepping in mine, what would you do? Where would you go? How would you feel in due time?”

Sweet Melody

Some things are not always what they appear to be. Your thoughts lead you as far as the eyes can see.

One minute it’s all Humpty-Dumpty glory. The next it’s all Dumpty- Humpty boring. Sit down here and let me tell you a short story.

A favorite song only you two can share. A song defining the love to show that you care.

But you’ve turned down a long bumpy road. I guess that song of love you no longer hold.

Wait!! The song is playing, and there are weeping eyes. All you think about is what happened and why?

A Total Lie

He would tell me how I could change him. I knew right then the chances was slim.

He said he’s addicted like I am a drug, but he never knew what it meant to give a hug.

I never could show it ‘cause he was never around. I knew what was going on, him creeping and sleeping nowhere to be found.

It hurt me deep inside ‘cause I thought he loved me. Guess I played the fool I was blind I couldn’t see.

I know everybody plays a fool sometimes. Guess this turn was mine.

So, there I was all alone. Left in the rain all night long.

I felt cold with no friends to understand what I was going through, to lend a helping hand.

I was faithful, never untrue. Nobody could see the pain I was going through.

I hope you know how I feel. My love for you could’ve been real.
