I present: Hasty words
In her own words:
I am just a girl trying to create rainbows in a world where my mind is held prisoner! I write a lot in order to gain perspective, purge my soul, retain my memories, and to put into words what my tears and laughter are trying to say! I don’t like to think about the rules of writing etiquette when I write. I free flow my thoughts and write them however they come. Many times they are complete nonsense but the world is full of nonsense. I write about my family, my friends, strangers, and myself. Many times I put myself into another person’s shoes in order to gain perspective about a situation or event.
|Her final role
Phantom spasms span her being
Rendering her anxious and awake
She can’t sleep, for days it seemed An endless, wordless movie reel spins
A crazy off course carousel in her head Her inner voice screams to be heard
Her friend’s voices loud and concerned What is wrong with you silly girl?
This movies is yours, you are the lead
You wrote the script the director yells Your messing it all up the costars moan Writing too many unfinished stories
The credits at the end need to be cut
The critics are complaining the star
Well, she is schizophrenic and can’t deal Her delusions and paranoia are not real She decides they are right as she sits Erasing the reflection in the mirror
The ending to this story ends here Resigning her authorship, she stands
The mirror breaks, shards drip
As she steps into her final role,
I have been trying to write this blog the last few days but I kept getting distracted. I am convinced I am attracted to all forms of distraction. I have a to do list that keeps getting longer, and goals that inevitably keep getting pushed further and further into the future. In talking to my best friend, who is currently in college with homework coming out his ears and a part time job, it was easy for me to see the distractions in his life. Well…..it was easy for me to see what distracted him but what about what distracts me? Are distractions distracting me? I know I have always been fairly oblivious to my surroundings but distractions are different. Not all distractions are bad and sometimes they are necessary and very much needed, however; uncontrolled, unnoticed distractions keep us from reaching our full potential!
I decided to make hunting for distractions a priority. At first they were hard to find because they had creeped into my daily routine. They were sneaky and easy to justify in the beginning. Eventually, I could see distraction in nearly everything around me….sitting there crouching waiting to pounce on any attention I might give. … Read more
|It wasn’t love
Seeing you happy without me is hard
It breaks my heart every time I hear your name
I shed a tear every time I hear your laugh
When you compliment others I die a thousand deaths
I thought I loved you but I can see now I never did
Because if I loved you
I would delight in your happiness
Instead of tears of sadness
I would be shedding tears of gladness
When gravity fails
When I begin to float away
Your smile grounds me
