RED

There he was in the hall.

I snuck a glance.

A rush fell over me. 

If only. I felt my cheeks beginning to burn. No, no. Not again. The anxiety was toppling all of my other thoughts. I wish I could get noticed. I wish he would notice me. No I don’t. What would I do anyway? The red pigment in my cheeks shined brighter. No, calm down. It’s fine. Stay calm. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. Simple. No, not simple. Emotions are too complex, why should I care? But I do. I say I don’t but I do. I want to be noticed and not ignored. I want to be admired and not looked past. I want to be seen, but still lying in the shadows I sit. To be ignored. To be overlooked. And not to be seen.

Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future. -Audrey Hepburn

Hope for the Future But Ignorance to the Present;

Today was another day i have yet to realize the importance of every little moment. I constantly look past everything in hopes that what comes later is better, but then often find myself disappointed over and over. Each day fails to live up to what I thought it could be as I fail to reach my goals. I put things off constantly, which does me no good in the end. Again, I hope the future will be better and fail to change whats right in front of me.
