Sharing Sunday: Unrequited

So sorry I have been behind in my blogging. I will be doing my best to catch up this week. Anyway, here’s today’s Sharing Sunday:


I can’t stop shaking. I grow cold and fidget with my fingers. My breathing is shallow and comes in syncopated breaths. My heart hurts and the butterflies in my stomach are making me sick. I told myself I wouldn’t do this again, I wouldn’t fall. I was going to focus on the bigger and better and brighter five year, ten year plan. Then you came along. Inconvenient, unwanted, distracting, and yet so wonderful. My heart hammers in my chest like a person dying to get past the locked door of my ribs. This isn’t something I want. This isn’t something I asked for or was looking for. Yet, here it is and I’ve lost my appetite because the butterflies won’t settle into the acid of my stomach. I can’t look at my phone because of the rising feeling of hope and the crushing falling feeling of seeing you have not responded. Everyday becomes a roller coaster of despair and hope. I love and hate it. You have become hope and I don’t know whether it’s better to try and grab you or whether it’s better to sit in the distance and just watch, enjoying the roller coaster without the commitment. And I know you know, so now what?


(I’m not sure I’m going to do NaNoWriMo yet, but I’m thinking about turning this little thing into an attempt. What do you think?)

    Wow! My heart is literally bouncing. Not like bounce house “bouncing” but like a million rubber balls down a pavement “bouncing.” I love that you can transfer your emotions so beautifully into something productive. I need to challenge myself to resurface my emotions and put those suckers on paper.
