To me writing has become a way to express how i feel about my life and also venture out and be someone else and tell their story

A writer and nothing else: a man alone in a room with the English language, trying to get human feelings right. ~John K. Hutchens

Its a funny kind of weird seeing you with someone else
There are painted fingers now where my palm used to rest,
beautiful curls where this head used to lie
Its a funny kind of awkward walking past you now
Always thought it would be me there...right beside you
Its a funny kind of awkward living without you now
You're just another person moving on without me

I've been dragging my feet
Sad beyond belief
I'm in love with you
And its terrible
I'm in love with you
And it hurts all over

Dear Lily
I know most of your habits you will learn from me
but I am a flawed woman and this you will learn in time
I hope you learn from me what I learnt from my mum...the saving Faith of the Christ

I've never been about that independent woman streak
And maybe in someways that deems me a little weak
I've got the job, the car and the apartment
But none of it holds much if any fulfillment
I've got the blouse, stilletos and a few pencil skirts
But most days I'd rather stay home in sweats and flats
They say I need to be a woman of power
A corporate titan as strong as a highstanding tower
A woman who doesnt need flowers
A woman who doesnt need a man
This is what they call a life of success
But its rather a life built to impress
Cause I come home alone at night
And its quite a sorry sight
But for some reason i dont envy the lady behind the mahogany table
But rather the intern sporting a baby bump who's marriage is stable
I dont want to have dinner with a laptop screen
nor do I desire my life to revolve around the latest win
Maybe a career will never tell me it doesnt love me anymore
But my degree will never grow arms and hold me when I'm sad and sore
So I can never be that woman
"A woman with balls, a woman that never falls"


So they say

*I want you to love me
But sadly i have to beg for it
You're not intent on pursuing me like a gentleman does a worthy maiden
You wanna stir up my feelings and create a false hope you're not intent on fulfilling
I want you to love me
But you wanna play games like a little boy but I wanna be a wife, mother and a lot more
I want you to love me
But maybe I've been lonely for so long and I just need somewhere to belong even if you just might be all wrong *

There's room for me on your bed but there's no space at all in your heart
You dont have to say anything
The question marks hang heavy on your pupils
Eagerly anticipating and awaiting my subservience
I can slip into something more comfortable, something suitable for this occasion and make a bid at the auction of your affections
Its a hot summer night and we're both drunk on desire and mighty eager to play with lustful fire
But only one of us will be hungover with regret trying to beat the headaches of common sense
There's something broke in me, this I know as I walk out the door
The cold begs me to reconsider and sell my soul for a little bit of your pretentious affection
But I'd rather wait for someone who wants more than fleeting passion
So am I really a prude or rather prudent?

I'd love you like I love,
Summer,
And a warm breeze,
I'd love you the same way I love rusty old swings,

I'd love you like grass,
And  trees,
And love you like holding hands,
While we walk on the beach,
I'd love you like,
Entangled feet,
Under soft blankets,
With the tv casting shadows on your face,
While you laugh,
Oh God I would love to make you laugh,

I'd love you like thrift shops,
And old photographs,

I'd love you like summer nights,
On the roof,
Or in bed watching movies,

I'd love you like I always would,
Forever,
Never waver,
I'd love you like all these things,
Like warm coffee on cold fingers,
Or sunsets by the lake,

I'd love you day,
After day,

Like the ice skating rink,
I'd love you like, the song,
Temporary love,
By the brinks.

And I know I am young,
And you're miles away,
But there's a feeling here,
That's making me stay.

And I'd love you like this,
And i promise I would

Please let me darling,

I promise I could.
