Good Morning…

Inspiration

Sweet, swift uplifting of the soul and mind

allowing me to move in a direction I never knew I was meant to take.

Sweet in a way that makes me feel like I’ve gotten a brief glimpse 

of my first born, my own flesh and blood.

Sweet like the first bite of a ripe peach on a mild summer day.

These are the things that come from you

that make me feel like me–

make me thoughtful,

make me human.

Annnd go…..

Class Dismissed

I allowed you to mislead me and misguide me

Use me and abuse me

Deplete me of all of my good intentions

and left me with virtually no remnants of myself.

All of this was done under the guise of friendship;

You preyed on my innocence

manipulated your intentions with me in order to extract  some of the sweetest nectar from my very core.

It wasn’t until too late that I realized that I, in fact, was the only one of us being true.

And even in that realization

I made an attempt to save a friendship that never truly existed at all.

What a fool I was,

But a fool no longer I shall be.

Because you taught me lessons that I wouldn’t have learned ay other way.

To open my eyes to the truly wicked ways of this world?

Teaching me discernment and patience, and the power of an observant eye?

Maybe…

These are things one can only learn from experience…right?

And you-you’re the master teacher.
