Sometimes

He said he felt like I didn’t love him,

Like he was just my friend

A friend with the alarm code to my heart & the key to my soul…

If only he’d turn it

Saw our future through a telescope

Growing together,

Taking each day as it came

Me, ready to abandon the script that had become my life,

My comfort zone

To walk through the storms in my head,

He was my light

Knight in shining armor,

More like a…

Words http://wp.me/s2INPI-words

slicing into me

smooth & clean

like paper

or a ninja’s blade

takes a moment to sting

rarely bleeds

the pain has an echo

through the canyons of my soul

aftershocks through my mind

days, weeks, months later

like they just cut through my ear canal

your words…

Love & Music

would I love music more than my boyfriend?

yes

yes, I would

should he ever make me choose

between him

and the masterpiece that is the X&Y cd

I would chuck the deuces

plug my head phones into my iPod

and walk away

while Coldplay attempts to fix me

if my love ever decided to deny

the fact that Michael Jackson and Prince are

and always have been

musical geniuses that cannot be compared

to each…

Keep your hands to yourself!

I spent a lot of time working with kids in various aspects of my life. That means I have spent a lot of time telling kids to keep their hands to themselves. I recall once having a conversation with a little girl that troubled me. She was running around hitting on a little boy who was around the same age as her, but bigger than her.

Me: Don’t hit him. You are supposed to keep your hands to…

GOD bless the exes!

GOD bless the exes!

Okay so I know this may sound weird but I am really thankful for my past loves.

No seriously. (Stop laughing and/or giving me the side eye.)

I was tweeting yesterday about understanding your personal love language. Your love language (by my definition) is the way you show love. It can also be the way you best receive love.

I have found that the most clear way that I show love is by devoting time…

See this is why…

See this is why…

See this is why fucks cannot be given

You give one and they want them all

They want them how they want them

When they want them

Heaven forbid the turtle move too slowly for them

All fucks should be given immediately

This is why fucks cannot be given

Because then when you try to tell them water is wet

They look at you like you are crazy

Tell them fire is hot

They look at you like you’re the one…

There are words there

From the moment our lips touched
I knew there were words there
I was prepared for my unexpected decision
to break rules set by the
stick-in-the-mud other half of my personality
Love keeping people on their toes
But I wasn’t prepared for the
split second…

The Reason

Let me be the reason behind your smile.

The random text message after a crazy commute.

The note in your coat pocket describing/encouraging your world domination.

The mental picture that causes the edges of your lips to stand at attention.

The surprise…

Tell them…

Tell them… That the sun rises in their smile and sets in their eyes… That they run through your mind like a child at recess… That their touch lights a fire and you can’t find any water… That the jade case holding your heart is open… Tell them… That they…

Remembering when it was so easy (6x6)

Do you like me? yes/no?
Why can’t it be that simple?
Maybe complicates the clarity in life.
Tag you’re it should still work.
I called shotgun infinity long ago!
Where the hell is my driver?
