Drunken Me

Drunken me

Shot after shot, I feel the numbness take over my body, I want more, need to feel empty inside.

Feel free, free from those who lied, used, and abused me, free from pain, free from the world

Take another shot, it is all good

Feel the sensation, feel the burn

They all do not matter, drink the damn pain away

Take another shot, damn I feel it, I am slipping

But I do not give a damn

Give me more, few more shots taken, mind gone

Laid back not feeling shit, I feel numb, empty it is what I want

Free from it all or is it just a drunken daze

Do I want to stop? Do I need more?

Whispers…Whispers…. Drink it all away

Its okay be gone for the night

And another one…….

Thank you for reading

What to do?…..

What to do?

So, things have been going okay the last couple of days despite the bad that is going on and trying not to think about it. Been writing for days on and off and the ideas and dialogue were flowing great I mean I was writing and editing with no problem, getting a lot done. Now today I am sitting here blank stare and do not know where to begin, mind is blank and can not think straight. Maybe today is not the day to write or maybe I should try again later. My brain is not working, like what is going on, ugh what to do when you have writers block? No work today so I have been trying to keep myself busy. I guess I will find a good book to read and come back to the pen and paper later and hopefully get those creative juices flowing again, should be resting but whatever. How is you guys day going? Hope it is going well.

Thank you for reading.

When you feel the weight of the world, of life.

Trying to make everyone around you happy.

Trying to make yourself happy.

Pressure

Having those bad days, struggling

Pressure

The drama and let downs.

To be perfect

Dealing with people who are toxic to you.

Heaviness

Too much weight

It is all around.

Damn the pressure.

Imperfect

Imperfect!

She is perfect in her imperfections

She is happy in her pain

Strong in her weakness

She smiles through the cries

She put on her happy face, ready to help others

Knows her weakness, and strengths

Keeps her head up no matter what

She learns from her mistakes

She is beautiful in her own way because she is herself

Yes she is perfect in her imperfections!

Thank You For Reading!

Have you ever felt this way?

Have you felt this way?

Cannot get this man off my mind, damn every day I think of him. His looks, his smile, his voice, and his damn personality. We are a match. We have great chemistry, I can have a good conversation with him, he makes me laugh, and we also can be serious too. It is just something about him. I avoid talking to him because I have strong feelings and do not know how to show it or how to tell him (my scared ass, LOL). I am so guarded and been hurt too many damn times. But for real, I just do not know what to do. Then I worry about if he feels the same way. I do not want to put my feelings out there and he do not feel the same way I do. And that will constantly bother me. What if he does not respond or never talk to me again. I probably sound crazy, but it is how I am feeling and can not shake it. Right now, I want him next to me, us talking and vibing, I want his touch, his eyes on me. Then again, I do not want to look stupid and get hurt. My emotions are everywhere tonight, and I am dinking a little and it is making it worse. Maybe it is bedtime for me because my mind is going miles and I am so over this, maybe because I know the truth. 

I guess it is what it is. Just my thoughts and feelings tonight. I really want him, like seriously, whatever.

Thank you for reading.

Pay Attention!

Pay attention!

Open your eyes, look around

Are you really paying attention?

Open your eyes, watch those who are close

Are you paying attention?

Open your eyes to how they treat you

Are you paying attention?

Open your eyes, your ears to what they speak of or about

Are you paying attention?

Open your eyes before it is too late

Pay attention and be alert, open them up!
