These photographs were taken during one of the best years of my life. I went on so many adventures and learned more of who I was. I felt free. And yet, it wasn't forever. The photographs stay there and the memories come along, but the reality is still different. It's different because time has passed. [...]
Long gone are the days in which I'd idolize the suave British actor or the sweet, yet flawed teen heartthrob. I have come a long way. We all have. Relationships can be complicated and layered and I think media makes it very easy to ignore the harder parts. But I also think the joyful, deeply [...]
youth hormones formulate trials and experiments with love invested inwards feelings placed up reality kicks it back down heart and body reactions unseen forces gripped tight no straight paths only through and around Why d'ya have to be so cute? It's impossible to ignore you Must you make me laugh so much It's bad enough [...]
it's the piano keys hitting the downer notes. it's the guitar that strums along with the beat. it's the lyrics that dance along the melodies. it's the meaning behind all the words; every single letter that created the masterpiece. i used to live in this bubble of misconception that what i listened to defined who [...]
You laughed the stars Into the sky Twinkling along Mountains at night For everyone to see Wishing and dreaming A love that stays as True and bright. Cubby created the first two lines with her writing prompt: Laughter. Now that I realize the title of the poem prompt, this post could have gone another way [...]
quiet times breed this uncertainty a doubt that spreads inwards until it circulates throughout and explodes through tears that stream down my face. i'll remember times of golden sunshine halos around his head as he smiles and laughs hums and sings his loudest note never caring how he looked. a love from his belly to [...]
how many of these photographs do i need to see and take before i say, "this is enough." possibly a million of them? i never get sick of these. ever.
A door opened last year. One I never thought I'd ever have to walk through, but I did. It's one we all will have to do one day. Innocence is precious and beautiful. But there are due dates and deadlines. It doesn't last forever no matter how tightly you grip. It will fade as photographs [...]
There is so much building inside my heart. The sorrow I feel is so full that I can't contain the tears and they just fall. Aimlessly. I do not know what it is my heart is trying to say. Am I crying for what was? Am I crying for a release? Am I crying to [...]
The overwhelming memories Faze in and out of my mind Like a visual crescendo of life Passing through the years. Your voice is the audio track Tracing the outlines of what was. Tears stream down my face Starting out warm, Then cold as it reaches my chin. I search for you in my mind. My [...]
I honor you today for your service. For having been one of the most interesting, brave and admirable people I have ever known. I think of you all the time. It is who you were as a person that I constantly follow as a role model for me; to be kind and to be honest. [...]
For so long, I didn't recognize the image that M***** had seen. I couldn't comprehend her choice to walk on the path of struggle; towards a life that would create pain. But I see it so, so clearly now. It was inevitable now I see. As a young child, you try to your best to [...]
I stared out onto the sky for hours. Seeing how it changed from moment to moment. The transitions happened so seamlessly and whenever I blinked, there was a new transformation. An airplane from afar flew by; painted the sky with its own clouds of patterns. Catching the sunset is so humbling. Brings me down from [...]
meet me at our spot, tonight, after dinner, we'll drive over seas of waves singing to the moon holding our hearts close to each other.
the bridge that built between us extended beyond our expectations. a friendship valued as family a spirit connected through lifetimes. i am thankful to have you in my life. a love deeper than any film portrayal a kindness more sweet than rose petals a generosity as selfless & innocent as a child. thank you
