A Letter to Myself (Journal Entry)

Dear Sweet Maria,

If every famous love quote were compiled into a song, my love for you would remain unsaid. Your passion sets me off into a frenzy of incoherent jitterbugs. Your strength in the forefront of repetitive injury can only be described as the spirit of grace. 

When you fall, you get back up with thrice the wisdom you had before. And even when you fall again, I have no doubt you will endure. 

I am twitterpated by your beauty, not just the cover, but the book that lurks beneath. If you ever gave up on dreaming the Earth would tremble in despair.

Eternal Love,

Maria

The Coveted Prize (Journal Entry)

Tainted memories, faint and bitter sweet. Tossed to the wolves, lost with the sheep. Picking up the pieces but I got nothing left to own. Taped out long before I knew the life that leads to love.

If living were an art form, and love were the coveted prize; my canvas is a heaping pile of confettied hearts and lies.

Moving On (Poem)

Three steps forward and two steps back
Is still one step onward and an inch on the map

But one step onward is still far in between
A run of the mill life and the American dream

The difference between a superficial smile
And a cold adolescent stare is like pursuing a dream
When no one seems to care

Keeping On (Poem)

Just keep on truckin
Said a pimp to his whore

Said a wise man to a prophet
Said a Mad Man to his war

Just keep on keeping on
And when you..

Need help to be strong

I’ll be there right beside you
And I’ll help you to go on
