Going a little crazy with the sale of my house right now. I have no problem with a buyer asking for things, but I dislike when they’re unreasonable. I really don’t want to start this process all over again, so please let these people see reason!

Goodbyes

I’m posting this a bit later that I had planned. I wrote this 15 years ago (so please excuse my lack of finess) shortly before my grandmother passed away from pancreatic cancer

Goodbyes

My heart breaks every time I hear goodbye.

I don’t need another heartache and

I don’t need

to cry.

Some goodbyes

are not forever

and some 

broken

hearts will always stay.

Please don’t leave

me 

here in this big world.

I need your arms

to comfort me late 

at night. I know as I

cry,

the heavens

smile down

on me while you

wave goodbye.

Puzzle Pieces

I am but a 

piece 

of a greater 

puzzle; an enigma

in place of a 

girl. The ups and

downs of a 

roller-coaster

ride make  me

difficult

to handle. My 

edges

are rough and I

never quite fit, yet

I have a

fluidity

that even I don’t

understand. I am

who I am, but you’ll

never

catch more than a

glimpse

of what’s really

hidden

inside. 

Life is made up of moments. Most of them pass us by in scenes of black and white, but every now and then there are ones that standout in vivid color. Those are the moments worth holding onto, and to be given lives of their own. I don’t want to be someone who sits back waiting for life to happen to me any longer. I want to grab hold of my moments and finally live. To make myself clear, you are my moment. The one that will breathe life into every moment that follows. Right now you are the only moment worth living in.
