Breakthrough

4 Nov

ID-100137500

We all take turns

being the crazy in the room.

Maybe you didn’t handle it well.

Don’t beat this thing to death.

You are one of the crowd

when we want what we want.

Next time…

Stop!

breath in

center your self.

Come on,

It’s not that hard.

Then…

proceed, do your thing.

You are not perfect,

neither am I

nor is the next guy.

Give your self some credit,

for your participation.

Because…

Some just opt out from trying again,

And regret the things they didn’t do.

Sensory Impression

23 Feb

ID-100117224

We stayed on the hill,

very close.

A loud bang,

into the dark.

Colored sprays of light,

spread across,

the moonless sky.

Loud bangs,

the swoosh of rockets,

roman candles,

golden showers.

Bang!

Cascades of silver, green and blue,

A louder bang!

The firework display contuinued,

Even though that was then,

and this is now,

I remember it all so well,

That magical night,

when my heart found its home.

The Lesson Of Infatuation

9 Feb

HPIM1022

Yesterday,

I met a guy,

He had a kind and gentle way.

He made the boring things in life exciting.

Through my eyes,

He could do no wrong.

Over time –

I gave him trust and blind adoration.

To me,

It had to be,

More than a fleeing thing.

He wormed his way into my heart.

Today,

I can’t toss away the memories,

They go everywhere I do.

The little things,

The little things that change your life,

It wasn’t what I expected,

It didn’t make no sense,

When the whispers began.

Engaged, she’s pregnant,

He had another.

With Me,

He wanted some fun-

A fling.

Tomorrow,

Whatever comes my way,

Comes my way.

The lesson don’t hold on to the negative.

Take risks,

Have the courage to fail.

I’ve learned.

For,

The little things,

The little things can change your life.

Dictated moments you can neither expect or control.

If I hadn’t taken a chance,

And said, “It’s all or nothing,”

Instead live the infatuation,

of Him,

I would never discovered the truth.

I couldn’t have found a rare and amazing man like YOU!

Wouldn’t you love to read a quick love story on your lunch hour or on your travels? My short read Till Death and Beyond would be perfect!
