A half-read book is a half-finished love affair - David Mitchell
"'When you unhook the star. You can often see your destiny shimmering inside it. Some say it's the very soul of the star reflecting back at you.'"
To help me find You, You gave me the key, but my seeking You, was also You seeking me!
You will be taken for granted. You may be hurt to your very core, and still be asked to give a little more!
...and I pondered this curiously crazy life and the things I failed to grasp as a girl, but thought I understood now as a softer , wiser woman. I thought about life and death... I thought about tonight's dinner menu too...
You see, long ago I built a wall, a defense mechanism as I recall.
They secretly scoff as you slip, losing your dignity and integrity, and again as you stumble, you drop your degrees and pedigree!
I'd rather sip the waters of Lethe yet they ask
While you lay dreaming, I hear you sleep, and slowly start counting little lost sheep. But I'd rather you snore, than be no more!
I love listening to the sound of your heart beating, the comforting memory of a cuddling womb.
It may very well be said that my very best work, remained in my head!
Reclining on my sofa, gazing out my window, my thoughts are adrift on the breeze, that gently sways through the nodding flowers, and rustling leaves.
If I could be but a leaf on that tree, And of this encumbering world be free, be free!
Someone mentioned your name today,
Took me down memory lane,
To a time very much younger,
A time more pure, more sane.
A whipping tongue scathingly lashes a false sense of power failing to reflect that a tongue portrays the character of its possessor!

They, while their companions slept, Toiled upwards in the night”.

There it was again—that awkward death-talk silence. The boys lingered in it for a few moments before Nick interrupted the quiet.
An emptiness filled his eyes, and he drifted somewhere into the depths of his soul where he remained for a full two minutes.
Connor and Drake studied each other. Drake smirked at Nick’s best friend, and Connor leered back at him.
Once Nick stopped talking, the conversation ended. Death-talk silence permeated the room.
The boys grew quiet, and that awkward silence that happens when anyone mentions death overshadowed them.
“You, young guys, think you know everything. When I was your age, I thought I was so smart. The older I become, the more I realize I don’t know shit." Max Riley
Things have changed for daughters, Not for daughters-in-law.
The next week passed in a state of limbo. A subdued tension filled the air, a dull anticipation as everyone waited for something to happen.
“If he jumped out of a window,” I said. “Please tell me how, in all these photographs, taken by the crime scene photographer, the windows were all shut?”
'I have travelled this far,
No more regrets.
Lived for this moment,
Nobody to blame,
Sense the fear
And taste the fame.'
Dear H by Diane Guntrip
' I am the sun, the star
Ready to shine. I must stretch, reach out,
Aim high as the sky.
Better to fail
Than never to try.'
Dear H by Diane Guntrip
Nothing is impossible in this world if there is an effort behind it.
Name up in lights,
Couldn't happen to me.
Excuses are mine.
It's the wrong place.
It's the wrong time.'
'Music in my soul,
Music in my heart,
Are tearing me apart.'
