Broken Fairies

I am silent as I watch from my hiding place.

The fountain is cool

I look down at the gray, slate stone

The fairies lie broken on the ground

They fell from their high perch

A tear runs down my cheek

It freezes, clinging to my skin

“I do believe in fairies”

I Remember…

I remember the way you held my hand

                   the way you’d hold me tight

                   the way you’d kiss me

I remember our first date

                   our first song

                   our first time

I remember our future plans

                   our promised vows

                   our history

I remember falling

                        out of my control

                                  with all of my soul

But mostly

I remember how you broke my heart

                   made me cry

                   made a little piece of me die

I remember breaking

                   shattering into a million pieces

                   no hope of being put back together

I Wish…

I wish I could leave this place

I with I could move

But my legs are cemented

My roots, they grew.


I wish I could say good-bye

I wish I could run

But my heart is opened up

My love is not done.


I wish I could close the door

I wish you would leave

But you, you chose to stay here

You  just will not leave.


I wish I could leave this place

I wish I could move

But my legs are cemented

My roots, they grew.

NaBloPoMo Day Nine

Yesterday I posted about what I’ve learned so far about blogging everyday…and I said it was not too hard to post everyday but also not that easy on what to write about each day. I found that today specifically, it has been hard to find the time to post anything….and though I put day 9 as the title…it is technically day 10. But I don’t want to fail at posting something for each day of the month because it has been a big push for me to try to keep my creative juices flowing. Something I have learned is if I am going to take my blogging seriously, I may need to give myself more time earlier in the day to work on my blog than waiting till 11 or later at night to post for the day. My laptop may have finally died for good as of last night…hopefully I can take it to the doctor tomorrow and have it ready to write my new post and stay on track!!

NaBloPoMo Day Eight

Day Eight Topic: Tell us what you’ve learned so far about daily blogging.

I have come to realize that posting something daily is not too hard. Some days, I am not sure what to write about. I have been mostly following the NaBloPoMo topics from Blog Her, although some days I just want to “free write”. I have learned that there is a lot more to blogging than I had realized. I enjoy browsing around other blogs before and after I post my blogs. The biggest thing I have learned is that no matter how short, I do have the ability to write something every day. In taking on the challenge of posting something everyday for this month, I have found that I am capable, and I enjoy it more than I thought I would. I am looking forward to becoming a stronger writer by forcing myself to try to write. I have written more in the last week than I have in the last few years, and I am proud of myself. I will continue to write everyday and complete more writings and poetry aside from my blog posts.

This is a rough draft…and yet to be titled…just something I am working on and felt like sharing.


Cold metal

Warm skin

I don’t want to feel again


Crimson red

Flowing freely

This is my own form of healing


Down my arm

To the floor

Another cut brings out more


So much pain

So unyielding

How can I control this feeling


Cold metal

Warm skin

I don’t want to feel again

NaBloPoMo Day Six

Topic of the day: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

This is a difficult question to answer because physically, I believe I am made the way God intended. My personality is who I am and what I have been through, so that I would not change either. Since I have to choose…I have always wanted to be 5’8”. This may seem silly seeing as I am actually 5’7 ¾”. I almost made it there, but now have no hope to since I haven’t grown at all since I was about thirteen. When I was a teenager I eagerly awaited reaching 5’8”. I don’t know why I had my sights set on that height. It just was. As it is I am above average height for a woman. I am also taller than most of the men and women on my mother’s side (except the ones married in). I am taller than my older sister, which always made me feel somewhat tall. But now that my younger brothers are growing to be well above my height, I am back to feeling short again. I wouldn’t have it any other way though. Now, I will go the rest of my life never knowing the difference that 1/4″ would have made. But I am perfectly fine doing without.
