Love

Posted: May 5, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

Our eyes shut tight,

in the forever dark night.

As your lips embraced mine,

I felt time stop.

A feeling a weightlessness fell over my heart,

like a wave crashing into me.

I knew deep down that I loved you,

with everything in my soul.

Little did I know you felt the same,

you were the first to say those three precious words.

Like a prayer…you whispered them in my ear,

you smiled like a fool when I whispered them back.

Now it feels like saying it once a day just isn’t enough,

you say it everyday, every hour and smile just like the first time I said it.

There’s no way to hide that I am…

undeniably,

head-over-heels,

In love,

with,

you…

 

Volleyball

Posted: May 5, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

The rush of adrenaline,

Your heart beating a million miles,

There’s nothing, but you and the ball.

 

Time slows down as you go up to serve,

You throw the ball up in the air,

You’re ready to pounce.

 

As you watch it come slowly closer,

You feel your feet leave the ground,

Your arm extends up and goes back,

BAM!

 

The ball soars over the net,

Within seconds it’s been returned,

You dive,

Dig,

Jump,

Give it all you have to get to the ball in time.

Like it’s your last game.

It’s not just a sport it’s my life.

It’s not just my life either,

It’s my passion!

The Perfect Bouquet

Posted: May 4, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

You might think the perfect bouquet would contain roses.

There are so many more beautiful flowers.

Pink carnations, white daisies, yellow tulips.

Throw in a couple of magnolia’s, maybe some daffodils as well.

You see the perfect bouquet doesn’t just have to be one type of flower.

Just like flowers, people can be different. They can be mixed together, and made into the perfect bouquet.

Winter

Posted: May 4, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

Heavenly warmth is felt around the fire.

Yet outside is bitter and cold.

The snow falls slowly, coming down second after second.

Soon the urge to go touch the snow, and feel it’s cold embrace are too strong.

You step outside only to want the warmth of the fire back.

The snow has come to a slow trickle.

A lone snowflake lands on your nose then quickly melts away.

Just like the memories of a warm summer sun.

You smile to yourself.

Winter…has finally come.

A Liquid Moon

Posted: May 4, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

A liquid moon moves gently among the long braches.

Snow sparkles like glitter on the ground.

There is a chill in the winter night, and it goes bone deep.

It freezes everything it touches.

Everything it touches…

Yet here I am embracing this cold.

Letting it chill me to my very core.

It is comforting to feel this shocking cold.

As I open my eyes I see my breathe.

I need to go back inside.

To the warmth.

From the comfort of indoors, I can see a liquid moon moving gently among the long braches.

Nature

Posted: May 4, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

Outside I see delicate petals of a tulip.

The untouched beauty of the flower.

I look up and see a fluffy white cloud.

I realize that it looks like cotton candy, and laugh.

As I gaze around I spot a red fox.

It is jumping and chasing what I imagine is a mouse.

The fox comes up a second later with mouse in it’s mouth.

It dawns on me just then how beautiful everything looks.

I love just how wonderful nature is.

My Loss

Posted: May 4, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

I stood looking out into the murky river.

Thinking,wishing, hoping she was okay.

As I stood there I let tears slip down my cheeks.

She was hurting, dying and I could not do anything about it.

I felt like it was all my fault.

I was the one driving.

I was the one who “ended” her life.

No, it was him.

The drunk semi-truck driver.

He’s the reason she’ll never be able to walk again.

Not me.

I would give anything to switch places with her.

Anything…

Cold

Posted: May 3, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

I watch as the world freezes over.

I sit in silence watching, watching, and waiting.

Waiting for when the world will be a new.

When everything comes back to life. Where there is no death.

I await the arrival of spring.

A time of new birth, and regrowth.

You will hear the birds sing, see flowers grow, everything will be happy and bright, once more.

Until then I must wait for the cold to pass.

I wait in silence watching, watching, and waiting.

For spring.

Until the Day…

Posted: May 3, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

These hands someday will be old.

Until then I will live life to the fullest.

And never, ever stop being bold.

Being courageous,

Adventurous,

Until I am old, and settled down.

I am a teen.

I will rebel.

I will make mistakes in life.

These mistakes will make great stories and lessons to tell my children.

So they can tell their children, and learn not to do what their grandmother did.

I will be irresponsible,

Careless,

Reckless,

Like I belong to the faction Dauntless, or to the house Gryffindor.

Until the day when my hands will be old.

Waiting

Posted: May 3, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

I waited for years…five long years. You never made a move, and still I waited longer for you. I started to give up hope that we would ever end up together.

Then you came back into my life when I needed you the most. You picked me back up…piece by piece. I had been hurt, little did I know you had been too.

We both repaired each other, and now four months have passed. I feel whole again.

Boy, am I glad I waited for you!

The Silver Ring

Posted: May 3, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

A tarnished silver ring, the diamonds winking with mockery.

Tears stream down her delicate face.

Wondering if she should give it away or deal with the memories tying her to this ring.

The days when she would go through her momaw’s jewelry. Always admiring the ring…

Now it gives her great sorrow to hold it, or even look at it, her momaw  left.

With her she took happiness away, destroyed our family, tore us apart piece by piece, leaving pure destruction in her wake… and not looking back.

When you lost her

Posted: May 3, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC
There are times where all you think about is her.

She loved you from the start, she loved you.

At her house you spent hours chasing chickens, while she laughed.

You walked together by the creek. You tried your best  to catch salamanders for her.

She smiled at you, and watched.

Then one day she wasn’t home, you were worried. Your mother told you she was in the hospital. You cried for hours…sometimes you still do.

Suddenly you’re attending her funeral. You didn’t cry because of the shock. You have night terrors for months and you cry for years.

All of a sudden nine years have passed. You’re fifteen now. It still feels like yesterday. The wound is still fresh, and you don’t know if it will ever heal. You just don’t see how it can.

There will be the day when you’re reunited with her. Chasing chickens, and catching salamanders.

Just like old times.

The Boy…

Posted: April 21, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

As we ran down the field

dribbling the soccer ball to each other,

I noticed everything about

him.

His sandy blonde hair, the way he smiles, how his baby blue eyes

light up with excitement.

I couldn’t help it, but fall madly in love with him.

There is not a single flaw I see. He’s perfect in every weird,

quirky, and goofy way.

He yelled my name, breaking my train of thought.

We tumbled onto the ground.

As we lay there tangled together

I can’t help but think

He’s the one…

The Woods

Posted: April 20, 2017 by dconley369 in DestinyC

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,

Most don’t go in, but I find them inviting.

The sweet silence is what I crave. When I walk into these lovely, dark, and deep woods.

Everything else just melts away.

I find peace in these woods,

They have become my safe haven.

A place to escape reality,

A place to escape harm,

My safe haven.

My lovely, dark, and deep woods.
