Close your Eyes

Plug your Ears

Empty your Mind

It will be all right

Don’t fret

Don’t Panic

Don’t feel

Don’t look

Don’t hear

Don’t Think

Empty

Silence

Quiet……

                  What went wrong?  That’s what I ask myself, when I’m alone with my thoughts. Our relationship was going well and there was a mutual attraction. In fact, I even believed that there could be a future with him. However it all went downhill without my knowledge. I fell for him fast and hard and now I’m struggling to get back up. He seemed perfect in my eyes with his deep brown eyes and wide smile. To be honest, I think that I was won over by his smile. To say the least, I was mesmerized by a smile that was surrounded with full lips and accented by straight white teeth. I was pulled in by his booming, joyous laugh and I made it a goal to try to make him laugh. I would light up with pure joy when he spoke or was merely in my presence. Of course, I realized the hard way that I shouldn’t have listened to my heart. I should have kept it locked away in a dark abyss with no way to unlock it.  He didn’t do anything to warrant pure hate, but he brought about the jealousy and frustration in me. He loved someone else.
