For existence, for expression and a mix of both — an outlet. So romantically attached to reading, writing and poetry, I try to pen my own.

Stating how life is right now.

I haven’t written in a long time. Honestly, I don’t know what to say. There is so much craziness all around us at the moment. What could I possibly add that would be worth reading?

Will I tell you how I have not been handling my life very well? Or that no, actually I haven’t been taking care of my mental or physical health, gained a few pounds though. Let’s talk about cocktails and how I’ve become more of a wine-fanatic, maybe?

For what, she chose not to live

She yearns for the days
that could have been.
A life nearly lived.
Where would she be now,

Would her heart have been full?
Would she dance around
to the music her
heart would play?
Would her life have more color,
maybe she would cry a little less.
She yearns for the days
that could have been,
A life completely missed.
Had she chosen to stay there then,
she would be nowhere near now.
She is happy, yes.
Would her life be happy then?
The music in her heart,
would it be loud
enough for her to dance?
She would probably dream in color,
maybe she’d see all shades of gray.
Her eyes are often filled…
