    Crashing

    I see you in the distance and I sigh. I can’t seem to catch up although I continue to trod along the sandy shore. It seems I am stuck in quicksand. I can’t breathe; all I hear is my heart beating loudly in my head. The waves crash against me as I drown in my own tears.

    Midlife

    I am 46 or 47 years old- I can't even remember but my life is past tense. I don't really have a laid out future. My life will get better as along as I keep taking incremental steps but its hard. I don't always feel this alone but on the days I do I never know why.

    Apparently I told a friend I kinda love him(I'm confused if I really do love), and that friend sounded like he's rejecting me since he told me he had a lot of crushes. I smiled and replied 'Why would I?' when he asked if I hate him for that. Few hours back, no feelings about it...
