I See Rainbows

I see rainbows where no one else can It's faint, but it's there all the same Others see cloudy skies and storms rolling in But I can see the sun shining through I see light where no one else can It's faint, but it's there all the same Others see darkness and shadows lurking around But I can see the sun shining through I see love where no one else can It's faint, but it's there all the same Others see hatred and anger lashing out But I can see the sun shining through I see rainbows where no one else can It's faint, but it's there all the same.

Baby Wilson

Baby Wilson was about 12 years old when she died, if I remember correctly. We saved her from the pound. She had a temper, and was to be put to sleep no more than a week from the day we got her. So we really did save her. My mother wanted to name her Didnam, standing for Damsel in Distress Not AnyMore. I liked it, but my brothers kept calling her Baby, and sooner or later, it just stuck. Baby was p art red bone coon hound and part something else and part something else. We think she might have been part pit bull, but we were never completely sure. I was pretty young when we got her, so I wasn't the best with a new dog. I admit I pulled her tai

Rulers of Olympus

Zeus was just a player Frivolous, promiscuous Never satisfied in his desires His passionate heart-fires Are never sated Hera was just a hater Antagonist, not-having-this Never satisfied in her domains Her raging heart-pains Are never curbed Zeus and Hera Brother and sister Husband and wife Ruling the world and Heavens Causing unceasing strife Hera and Zeus Together on the 'Mount Reigning with fire and lightning Manipulation and deceit Making the world their playground ... Isn't it frightening to be a Greek today?

Broken Destiny Ch. 2

Riley awoke to the sound of dripping water. He felt hot… so hot… Allowing his head to fall to the side, he groaned loudly. Extreme heat always gave him a pounding headache. Mumbling about the temperature, he began to sit up. Something stopped him, and his eyes flew open, taking in his surroundings for the first time. An eerie red glow coated everything. Farther away, he could see tendrils of steam snaking up walls and around columns. Following the haze upwards, his breath caught in his throat as his gaze fell upon numerous torture devices – chains, whips, manacles, knives, other evil-looking props he couldn't even begin to put a name to, let

Choices

We go through life Wondering, what's next? We can look through our files Mere pieces of text Searching for the thing That will tell us What's to come... Our future is our own It can't be computed from a test It's out own special choice We'll try to choose what's best This is our time to shine We have decisions to make Building our own future... No one can tell us What path we will take That can only be determined By the choices we make For better or for worse We will eventually learn Where life will lead us... So be not afraid Class of 2005 This is your time To truly be alive There will be many ways For us all to go

Tangible Dreams

Tangible Dreams

Lost in a cloud Climbing a ladder of tangible dreams Misty glitter twines together Smoke twisting down to a sky of crystal Rain-tears fall on toadstool bells Playing tinkles in harmony with voices on the wind Whispered words as sweet as sleep Dripping from the icy warmth of dark eyes Stars spinning in a void of steam Forever reverberating off droplets of mercurial nothingness Reflecting painful love of mirrored memory Floating discs disguise widening yawns Swirling through dust specks glowing ebony Still standing with this globe omnipresent Welcome to my barren world

Facet the Gaze

Facet the Gaze

Tears facet the gaze Shatter the world Fragments of nothing Floating through the void Snowflakes of sorrow Deepen the silence Deafen the senses Numbing time's passage Colors of emotion Clinging to shadow Flashes of feeling Spiraling the darkness Span my dreams Linger the pain Shimmer the love Loneliness is not fleeting

Dandelions

Dandelions

When I was a little girl, naturally I didn't have much money, so I couldn't buy anyone gifts. Like all other children of my age, all of the presents I gave to my mom were handmade - cards, pictures, necklaces, I even once painted a rock and gave it to her. I didn't know the difference between weeds and flowers, either. All I knew was that an abundance of pretty little yellow things grew in our yard which looked like flowers, so they had to be, right? I used to pick these 'flowers' for my mom and grandma, but especially for my mom. I would run inside, up to mom, all smiles, and give her the pretty little 'flowers' I had picked for her. She wo

Out of Your Arms

Out of your arms No more than a day Pain unbearable Tears ever falling Looking around Something to do Keeping busy But everything reminds me Of you... Clutching my pillow Missing your scent Without your warmth Lacking tangible love No more smiles No more loving gazes Just your voice ...No longer enough Out of your arms No more than a day Feels like forever And keeps dragging on...

A Message from Mom

        Tammy was going through old boxes in her attic when she found the disc-like projector. She wasn't sure of what it was at the time, but it interested her, so she pocketed it. She would look at it later, when she had more time. 'Later' turned out to be a few days. Tammy was busy - she would be moving out of her house, and into foster care. Her dad could no longer support them, and her mom had died nearly a year earlier. Things went downhill from there. Two days after her birthday, she came home from school to find her dad withdrawn, his eyes red and puffy. Mom is dead. She was crushed. Tammy didn't speak for weeks. She didn't cry un

What to Write?

What to Write?

Okay, so I'm in class, and I don't want to do actual work (who does?) so I asked if I could write. The only problem is, I don't know what to write about. So I came up with this idea, right?, to write about not having anything to write about, and maybe just putting down insane ideas I could actually write about, but never ever would because who would read it and what teacher in their right mind would give me class credit for writing about blue monkeys or how wet water is; where the sky meets the earth or the difference between light and dark; things I can buy for a quarter or how many triangular faces an icosahedron has. ...Just for the record

Where the Sky Meets the Earth

There's a place that can't be found on a map Where the sky meets the earth Where butterflies glitter and shimmer .........................silver drops of starlight Where the songbirds' songs have lyrics .........................oh so sweet Where the lion does cuddle up to the lamb .........................sleeping soundly Where lovers never have to say good-bye .........................together forever There's a place that can't be captured in a picture Where the sky meets the earth Where dewdrops glisten and shine on flowers .........................scented sight Where sunlight and moonlight mingle together ...................

A long, long time ago...

A long, long time ago...

It's been forever, but that's ok! The basics: school is going very well. I only have two more semesters until I get my BS in Early Childhood Education. I currently work as a preschool teacher. Life is decent :) Still deeply in love with my husband. I love you, James! :date:

I Totally Don't Update Enough...

I Totally Don't Update Enough...

It's been a while since I've really kept my on-line friends up-to-date on my life, so I'm not really used to it, anymore. Though, there is the little fact that I don't have nearly as many on-line friends as I used to, so, there wasn't really a point. But I do enjoy writing and typing, so why not? Last weekend (not yesterday, but the weekend before that) my husband, friend, and I went to the ZOO! It was so much fun. I realize it seems a little childish, but I don't care. I saw flamingos and a polar bear and koalas and all sorts of animals! We watched the seals be fed and most of the other animals sleep, but it was still awesome. James bought

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I know it's a day late... And this is a journal not a deviation... but I have no artistic ability whatsoever, so this is what you get! James and I saw Coraline in theaters, which was a VERY interesting movie, then we had dinner at Red Lobster. If you ever go to Red Lobster, and are of legal age to drink, you should try a Caramel Appletini. They are awesome. Long Island Iced Teas are also good. Bloody Marys not so much (in my opinion). They taste like ketchup O.o We got dessert from the bakery area of our local grocery store - white cake enrobed with raspberry white chocolate in the shape of a heart. It was also delicious. Needless to say, w
