Time Does Really Fly


Time really flies
Seems like just he other day when I was young and stupid that I couldn't wait to grow up. What a weirdo I was.
Lately am just hoping that time travel is a thing or maybe there's a reset clock somewhere just so I can back a couple of years back and not be ' grown up' for a change.

Seems like it was just yesterday when I was madly in love and the days just seemed to flash by.. Lately I just don't give a damn about that side anymore. Lets say that it just didn't love me back...
Even after telling sky about how happy I was back then.... Now time seems to be racing with slugs as if intentionally trying to make me feel stupid.

Seems like a day ago when I literally called everyone friend... Of late even the few that remained keep complaining that I ' changed '. To be honest, that change they talk about is something I don't know much about. And honestly am not sure am a friend to myself because I keep talking to myself and I hate the conversations in my head.

Time really does fly but there wounds that it just doesn't heal for me. Lost a couple of good souls ;friends and family and honestly I haven't yet recovered. Alot of " What ifs" is all I have, and maybe things would be entirely diffrent.
Am not complaining, but if anyone knows how to control time, please hit the pause button for I need a breather to catch my second wind because am honestly extremely tired.

Good write.

We all get extremely tired playing life's games with people who really don't love us back.

We are left with the "what ifs" but it doesn't really matter in the end.

If the person isn't even our friend. Lost in the wind as to speak...

There's no amount of thinking or "what ifs" that's gonna bring em back.

Hit the pause button...a breather is needed indeed.
