Abandoned Shoes
There’s something sad about an abandoned pair of shoes
sitting neatly on the ledge next to an immeasurable height.
Vibrant red shoes sitting on the cold gray concrete.
Only life full of sadness leaves cold empty shoes on a cold concrete ledge.
They say it’s to keep your soul from tracking the sadness into your next life,
But what about all the sadness you leave behind in this life.
We were once so young and free.
Making jokes and sitting side by side,
Your vibrant red shoes skipping along the fading hopscotch outline
on the warm gray sidewalk.
Oh, how it felt to have the sun shining on our faces
and for our only care to be what we would play next.
I remember so clearly, your bouncing pigtails,
Your strawberry blond hair in the sunlight.
Never did I imagine that our young innocent hearts could break,
or that sadness might take you away from me.
Maybe I should have noticed the way you would turn away
from me in the locker room when we would change together.
I just assumed you

Magic
The world around me is shimmering magic
The sky is like an ocean above me
The sun is a mystical orb of light burning my eyes and my skin
I run free, bare footed and tangled hair
Everything around me is magical
Like fireflies trapped in a jar
winking twinkling magical lights
The magic fades
The sky is simply a blue void
The sun simply a burning light
I walk, somberly, head down, hair in a conservitive bun
Everything around me is dull and meloncolly
Like a silent empty room
Darkness filling like an empty void

I remember so clearly, your bouncing pigtails,
Your strawberry blond hair in the sunlight.
Never did I imagine that our young innocent hearts could break,
or that sadness might take you away from me.
Maybe I should have noticed the way you would turn away
from me in the locker room when we would change together.
I just assumed you were becoming shy
even though changing in front of me had never bothered you before.
Perhaps my mind was simply made up for me,
you would always be the girl from my childhood,
with the bouncing pigtails
and the perfectly arranged row of rainbow colored shoes in your closet.
I never could have imagined you would spend months
cutting perfectly straight ribbons of red on your porcelain white skin.
I never understood why you liked that color so much, maybe it was a sign.  
I missed all the signs of the sadness flooding your heart.
I should have seen the way the light that once filled your eyes dulling.
I should have noticed the way you began to pull away.
I should have noticed the way our conversations
went from us talking to me talking.
Did you remember me that night?
The night you slipped of your blood red shoes
and stood on the edge of that damn dam?
How did it feel the moment your warm feet hit the ice cold concrete?
You didn’t want to track all that sadness and pain into your next life,
but did you ever consider all the time you wore your shoes around me?
All our lives you were leaving traces of you on my soul.
You should, you could have, why didn’t you call me?
Text me? Something. Anything.
Instead you jumped
and left those violent red shoes sitting on the ledge.
The only sign up above that you had ever stood there
before leaving this life for the next.

So here pretty recently my life's made some BIG changes. I decided I'm not going to continue working towards the career I've spent most of high school working towards because I think God has bigger things in store for me. Now I'm looking at going into photojournalism. My boyfriend (of almost 5 years) and I broke up which hurt a lot but I'm getting through it. I guess all I'm saying is who thought God would wait to turn my life all upside down until my senior year of high school. Guess He knew I wasn't strong enough until now. Well God, here goes nothing I'm going to give it my all and trust You to make everything work for Your glory.
