Have you ever wondered what it is like to be on the way towards something yet never reaching it?
Ive been on the road for far longer than I care to remember. I leave before someone gets close, I just leave.
I try not to think about it. I try to just take one day and then the next. I dont want to think about the past or the future. But I do. This aimless life was never what I thought I would have and it was never what I wanted. I try to drown those voices in my head with booze or fights, anything to keep them away but they keep coming back.
They whisper failure in my ear; say Im nothing and no one. They say I never got my dreams to come true and now I never will. But its not that easy. It just isnt. Of course I wanted to be someone, someone important; who doesnt? A doctor, an engineer
..someone whom people looks up to and respects. But its just not for me. I cant do it. I cant concentrate long enough, I keep losing focus and Im slipping away. I dont want to but I always do. My mind is never on the here and now and Im slipping away. Gods, Im slipping away.
Its the most dangerous game in the world and its the worst feeling in the world; feeling you have lost and knowing you can only thank yourself for it. Damn it all. Why? Why cant I be what they are? Why cant I concentrate long enough? If I could just focus. If
..I hate that word. I hate ifs. They ruin all my freakin days.
I have one dream still left though; all the others have faded and disappeared. I dream of a family, I dream of soft brown hair, of a sweet smile and willing lips. I dream of a woman wholl love me just as I am and not try and change me. I need someone to love me, I need someone to hold but more than anything else; I need just one person to think Im not a failure. If I could just make it in her eyes I would be all right; I know I would.
But whom am I kidding? What kind of woman would ever fall for a guy like me? Women want success, money, and stability. They dont want a heart; they want a wallet. I cant say I blame them. I really wish I had that. I really wish I had it in me to sit for hours before a computer screen and work for hours on end, I really wish I could do that. I do want to do something and make a difference but where to even start?
No, all else in my life has failed; this must not. I need to find this woman. I need her. I need to see love in her eyes, I need her warm embrace, I need to see respect and admiration in her eyes as she looks at me. I need to see that; I need to.
It cant be another broken dream; dont let it be another broken dream I can never fulfil. Dont.
Deep in thought and praying to a God I thought I had stopped believing in long ago I park the car and walk into a restaurant to get something to eat.
Yes, I need to find this special person; this one woman wholl love me in all her innocence. But where to find such a woman? Does she even exist?
..how we so often miss whats just in front of us.
