The way I yearn for you
is comparable to the way
that the sun refuses to be
even after it sinks
behind the mountains.
The glaring red hues
stain the sky
if just for a moment
after the sun has finished
just as pictures of you
continue to invade my
The glowing strands of color
and grasp out
until they tire and slip
I too will tire, but until then -
let my lovely sunset unravel
There are things far worse than death
A dead soul still trapped and forced to live on in life
A heart still beating even though dead inside wanting to die yet living each day
A fate that is draining
A burden too heavy to bear
I'm surrounded by a tender and warm embrace
A life giving kiss is given to me and oxygen fills my lungs
I breathe you in.
Semi ****** musings
If I died tomorrow, If I died today
What would you do? What would you say?
What would happen if you didn't see me or heard from me ever again?
What was I to you?
A lover, enemy, or friend?
What if I died....
The story of Marilyn Monroe is like a fairytale of sorts
She was a simple and shy sweetheart who one day let her beauty for the world to show
Everyone knew her name, her glamour and fame, the glitter and lights in her name
But no one knew the real Marilyn, her private inner life
Plagued with tragedy, demons, and strife
A mentally broken mother, distant and sometimes unfaithful lovers, and personal demons that plagued her in the dark
Marilyn Monroe herself was just a mask; an alterego to shelter and protect the sensitive and quiet little Norma Jean
From a shy sweet girl to a vivacious and sultry *** goddess
Marilyn Monroe is a lot like you and me
She was a starlet beauty who was realistic and relatable
Tragically, she died and left the world; her name and life still a mystery to this day
Here's a story of a little girl who dreamed to conquer the world
Norma Jean aka Marilyn Monroe
A tribute to Norma Jean aka Marilyn Monroe
