10 Things Every Woman Should Know

  1. You are a prayer in the most holy mouth, the space between clasped hands, a landscape so picturesque, any angle. You are a reminder that magic exists.
  2. Oh they will stop and stare, you most divine creature with unapologetic skin and fearless features. Learn to take a compliment. Settle into being the center of things.
  3. When you fall in love, let it be with a person who asks nothing of you. Your existence should be enough. If they do not kiss you urgently and often, find someone who understands that lips in the presence of love should ignite passion.
  4. Keep a few great friends. When they tell you harsh truths, learn to listen for the love. Growth is necessary and annoying at times, but look and you will always find the silver lining.
  5. Buy the perfect shade of red lipstick. It, like the perfect black dress, are weapons. Use them at will.
  6. Stop hiding your tampons. You are a woman. You bleed. Grown people know this. If he is afraid of menstruation, he is not prepared to be inside of you.
  7. Do not apologize for existing, for being yourself. Apologize when you are not.
  8. If you work hard, ask for a raise. Find your backbone and attach it to your standards. You deserve the money that correlates to how hard you work.
  9. Feed yourself kind words, chocolate, quality people, random first date, solitude, orgasms, and books. You will need really, really good books. Live in the story of them.
  10. If all else fails, repeat after me: I am enough.

It’s tempting… to hide in the crowd, to slack off when no-one’s looking, to aspire to nothing more than ordinary, to think that close enough is good enough, to only think about the short-term benefits,

After A While

After a while you learn
the subtle difference between
holding a hand and chaining a soul
and you learn
that love doesn’t mean leaning
and company doesn’t always mean security.
And you begin to learn
that kisses aren’t contracts
and presents aren’t promises
and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of woman,
not the grief of a child
and you learn
to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow’s ground is
too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down
in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
that even sunshine burns
if you get too much
so you plant your own garden
and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone
to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye, you learn…

Years and years…

…I have never felt more distant from the world.

It always takes two for my world to fall apart.

I want to cry for emotions I cannot describe-except that it hurts.

I have so much time. So much I have wasted it on nothing.

So much time to make bad decisions over and over.

STUPIDITY in its most glorious form!

Why I do this to myself, I do not know.

Am I that bored with life?

If only I can give whatever time, talent, and dreams I’ve left to another.

If only the colors can brush itself into my sorrow.

But maybe someone else can put it all into action.

Truth is…

…I wish that someone is ME.

On Pictures

It was a nice afternoon.
The weather was cool and the grass green from the recent rain that showered the earth.
The birds were singing and the trees were dancing.
An episode of bliss that was captured and immortalized in this small frame.

A memory.

A gift.

A curse.
