Pieces of Gravity

Pretending to be normal helps.

The Value of a Tear

Seeking inspiration

through the cracks

and pulling back

what I don’t understand

Telling myself, all the while

who I am, who I am

The voice within

made stronger in the void


bouncing back

resonance above the storm

Trickling of words

pooled around my feet

darkened drops upon a cheek

Clenching my sorrows

within my palms

holding them tight

remaining calm


I can see within the eye

a pause between smiles

is no reason to give in

But, more so

a chance for motivation

giving the fire inside




Recognizing the value of a tear

and the weight

of what put it there

Embers ignite

showing the dark days

I can appreciate their ways

every once in a while

I can smile through the cracks


looking back

way back

before the dawn

Awakened by a tear

the fires still burn

embers of past verve



in most ways

her thoughts,

they’re solid

But stranded in limbo

most days

her heart,

it wanders

Back and forth

seeking solace

Knows all too well

the dark secrets

upon him

Coming apart

behind closed doors

but never giving up

in time, moving on

Because determined

and unwavering

in every form

her soul

Outlasting her pain

making her strong

She is who she is

A girl who’s loved disaster

with the courage to let go

Craves what is lost

but knows to move on


Part of her wanted to know

but a piece already knew

He wasn’t for her

Not the one

But he made her smile

made her laugh

made her want

made her forget

the world was spinning

Time paused

But it was clear

as the hands of time

caught up

The world rushing by

Curiosity and life

He could make her smile

a normal kind of love

And that was enough

to recognize

emotions restricted

and limited

He couldn’t be the one


he couldn’t make her cry

Hey You

Hey you,

Do you bury your darkness?

the darkness within

Or do you pretend?

Feign the shadows aren’t there?

Not a dark cloud in sight

No troubles,

nothing to fear

The whispers

too soft to listen

too faint to be real

But they’re there my dear

Pay attention, you’ll hear

genuine reminders

we’re not perfect

not free from sin

No one is


Do you acknowledge your weaknesses?

Or disregard their appeal?


doesn’t mean we’re weak


or inferior

Just means the climb is higher

on the road back up

Redemption is near

Feel the ground

Go ahead my friend

consider your path



to find

a resolution

to confusions

sorting out your vices

Smirking at your shadows

fading in their silence

back in their



on you

and your direction

Avenues are lit

Hey You


Delighting senses

a heart, overgrown

A young soul, vibrant

with peaceful undertones

Noticeably dissimilar

to the world outside

Two feet beyond

conventional nuance

Inimitable methods

branding unique

A diamond among glass

don’t change a thing

A heart like yours

few and far between



completely unaware

how wonderful you are

just being yourself

in a world

doing its best

to make you

like everyone else



imaginary lines

between reality



Two different sides

neither wrong

both right

Dreams in color

painted skies

fantastical unwinds

Feel it all

but don’t fall

into the dark pages

of your life

bleak words

line after line

Blur the edges

let the kid inside


once in a while

Look at the world

through your heart

Watch your colors

come together

Shape the blur

embrace your dreams

They’re who you are

and who you’ll be



her heart

fond of the sparks

like a moth

chasing the flames

But one day,

she’ll realize her mistakes

discover her pain

learn to let go

when it’s too hot to hold

onto the blaze


Seeking flight

to save her wings

Departing the ashes


from her knees

Damage reversed

with single a word



So be it

not a moth

but a girl

No more urge to be

misplaced in the world

or afraid of the dark

A soul in good company

embracing her light

holding on tight

with a fireproof heart

Alter Girl

I try

I try

and I try

to be the better me

Not to be selfish

to set my wants free

But I struggle

and debate

battle and wage

with an alter girl

determined to pull the pin

out of my calm, collected world


Good sense is in attendance

incessantly ever-present

but continually underused

becoming ignored

falling faint

inaudible and indistinct

while her voice is telling me,


lose your doubts

speak up quiet girl

reach out

Who else knows what you want?


Back and forth we go

jumping over the rabbit hole

a childish game

with grown up rules

I know she’s right

even when she is wrong

I look in the mirror

Is she the captive?

Or is it me?

When we’re both wanting free

Thank You, Adrea :)


Hi…… I finally got around to completing the requirements (all centered around the number 11) for the Liebster nomination sent over to me by Adrea in Wonderland  . Love her! So if you’re curious, here you go….

The 11 Questions Adrea picked:

1. Whyyyyy do you like…me? Okay just kidding. Describe your blog in five words. Shimmery darkness with optimistic shades

2. What inspired you to start blogging? Rejection letters. Ha!

3. Do you ever want to throw your hands up in the air and stop blogging? I take short breaks now and then – okay some have been somewhat longish- but never ever do my hands want to fly up in the air and just give up.

4. Are you currently in love and with what or who? I’m in love with my best friend.  I think he loves me too.  Or maybe he just realizes I’m the only one that can feed him and walk him.

5. How many times have you been in love? Once, I think. Maybe twice.

6. Do you identify as carnivore, vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan, or something I haven’t mentioned on here? Carnivore sounds brutal, but I do eat meat.  I tried a vegetarian diet once.  Lasted about a year.  I have a weakness for cheeseburgers :(

7. Does internal health or external beauty influence your healthy food choices more? and if you don’t ever choose healthy, tell us why. Hmmmm… A bit of both, I guess. I do recognize certain foods tend to travel straight to my hips. I try to eat smaller portions and exercise regularly so I don’t have to say goodbye to yummy eats entirely. I also don’t want to feel like crap all the time, so I minimize the amount of snack foods I keep in the pantry.

8. When you get two spare hours, do you chill or play? Chill.  Because I play during the remaining hours.

9. What is your favorite activity? Go ahead, say what you want. Chilling with my nephew. He’s 5.  And thinks I’m 6.

10. Sexting, yay or nay? Blushing. My goodness. Yay?  Nah, nay… My nana could be reading!  Nay Nana, nay!  Orrrrr is it……. ;)

11. One wish is granted to you – what do you wish for?  More wishes… LOL


11 random facts about me….

  1. I own a guitar, but can’t play.
  2. I want to learn how to play the guitar.
  3. I once had a pet mouse for six years.  His name was Gus Gus :)
  4. For my 5th birthday, my parents gave me a puppy.  Instead of putting a bow on said puppy, they thought it was clever to gift wrap a bag of dog food.  I cried because I thought they gave me dog food for my birthday.  I pouted, “But I don’t like dog food.” Man I was a brat!
  5. My sister is my best friend.
  6. My sister is younger, but I tell people she’s the older sibling… hehehehe
  7. I’m not a morning person.
  8. Can’t function without caffeine.
  9. I love to play jokes.  Just played one on my boss.  I’m dying! I think it’s hilarious to scare people.  Air horns are awesome!
  10. I will never scare my dog again!
  11. I could eat pizza twice a week.  Maybe three times.  I won’t say 4 – cause that’s just bananas.  But I wouldn’t pass it up.. I’ll say that much!


Then I was asked to come up with 11 questions created by my own curiosity for the 11 nominees of my choosing. Here are my 11 questions in no particular order:

  1. What makes you smile?
  2. What’s your favorite part about blogging?

  5. How many emails would you say you send a day?
  6. Do you use emoticons (◕‿◕)
  7. How do you relax?
  8. Do you enjoy cooking?
  9. Will you cook for me? JOKE! Favorite dessert?
  10. Favorite movie?
  11. What has been your favorite posting since you’ve been a blogger?

So here’s a little something about me and the past 12 months..  Line After Line

In the past year, I have


I have cried

Made new friends

Thought, a lot


Sat in silence

Remained calm

Remained quiet

Sometimes words

just got in the way, even when

I thought

I knew what to say

Words held in reserve

Contended unspoken

Better off rearranged

I let the voice inside


in some other way

They still exist

pieces of my life

I am

a cascade of feelings

line after line
