Just Let Go


This is a song I wrote in 2008….I have it in MP3 and it is acoustic, thought I would share it with you all….the lyrics anyway 😉

 

Look at me

Through broken glass

See the love

That just can’t last

All the times we

Fought and cried

Tells me we’re living a lie

When is it time to just let go

Let the pain wrap around

And not be scared to show

That we’ve both moved on with life

And that we should have never let this

Slow us down

Time will only

Keep moving fast

And this thing was never built to last

So now fly free

Free to be

Whoever you couldn’t be with me

When is it time to just let go

Let the wrap around

And not be scared to show

That we’ve both moved on with life

And that we should have never let this slow us down

It’s ok to be hesitant

And never to want to take a step

But we just aren’t meant to be

There is nothing there when you say you love me

When is it time to just let go

Let the pain wrap around and not be scared to show

That we’ve both moved on with life

And that we should have never let this slow us down

A Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe


zpoeimgi

 

Alone (1875)

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw — I could not bring
My passions from a common spring —
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow — I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone —
And all I lov’d — I lov’d alone —
Then — in my childhood — in the dawn
Of a most stormy life — was drawn
From ev’ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still —
From the torrent, or the fountain —
From the red cliff of the mountain —
From the sun that ’round me roll’d
In its autumn tint of gold —
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass’d me flying by —
From the thunder, and the storm —
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view —

I feel it only right to honor Poe today, the day of his birth. He was a great poet and a tortured soul. 

Reality Blog Award


I continue to be amazed and surprised that so many people read my blog, which I started more for personal reasons than any other. I was nominated from Sofia Siberia for the Reality Blog Award 🙂 Thank you so much Sofia!!! 

realityblogaward

 

To receive this award I must answer five questions about myself 🙂 

1. If you could change one thing, what would you change?

I am not one for saying I would like to change things because I really believe things happen for a reason in your life. I know that if certain negative events hadn’t occurred I would not be where I am today!!!

2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be?

 Oi! None haha, every age had its ups and downs, I just want to keep moving forward, (ask me again in 15 years and I might sing a different tune!)

3. What is one thing that really scares you?

As a mom I think the thing that scares me most is that something terrible will happen to my children.

4. What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it?

Hmmmm I want to write a book, and yes I think one day I will complete that, not sure when, but it is in progress!

5. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?

This is incredibly hard! I think I would want to be J.K. Rowling, what an amazing thing to be able to see inside the mind of someone who wrote my some of my favorite books!!

Keep writing everyone I love to read your work 🙂 

 

Keeping you for a While


Barreling through

Break these walls down

Teach me how to feel

Bring love back around

 

Life is too short

And I don’t care if it is wrong

Happiness has stayed away

For far too long

 

I can only do little things

It seems so unfair

To have someone like you

Trying so hard not to care

 

You know just how to

Make me smile

I would do anything

To keep you for a while

 

And when the day comes

That you are gone

I will be content in knowing

I made you happy before you moved on.
