To an Old Lover

I don't love you anymore,
Don't know how I ever did before.

It was young puppy love,
But when push came to shove
You never came through.
But what could I expect,
You were just being you.

We're over and done,
It's no longer any fun.
I gave you my all,
But you never let me get inside your great wall.

You kept your guard up,
Never could be weak.
Hurt me so badly,
I could hardly speak.

I did love you once,
More than you'll know
And now I'm left here with nothing to show.

I'm worth more than what you gave me,
But I am finally becoming the woman I always knew I could be.

It was young puppy love,
But when push came to shove,
You never came through.
But what could I expect,
You were just being you.

The One

All it takes is the smallest touch
To set my body on fire.
And I tremble with desire.

All it takes is one look,
You read me like a book.
Everything around me disappears
And the rapid beat of my heart is the only thing I hear.

I see your face
And don't want to be any other place.
I want to feel your arms around me,
There's no place I'd rather be.

When I'm wrapped up in your arms
I feel safe from any harm.
Everything that I'm saying is true,
But please don't let it alarm you.

You're not looking for a girlfriend,
I'm just trying to be your friend.
But who knows how things will end up in the end.
So for now I'll just have fun,
and maybe one day I can be the one.

The one you turn to.
The one you can always trust to be true.
The one you can call a lover.
The one you can always call a friend.
The one who will be there until the very end.


A feeling so strong
It blurs the line between right and wrong.
A passion so full of fire,
Lust and desire.

They occupy your every thought,
Invade every corner of your mind.
A love so blind.

It's as if no one else exists,
And all you need is their loving.

Your hear beats so fast
You hope this feeling will last.

You never want them to go away.
Always connected,
You need to be near them,
Like a flower to a stem...

a late night thought

These are completely random lines that just popped in my head...Enjoy!

Have you ever sat and waited by the phone?
And never felt more alone?

Have you ever hated yourself because you care,
and felt like the world just wasn't fair?

Does it bother you that they didn't call?
Do you tremble at the thought that you may have started to fall...

You know it's not meant to be,
but somehow all you can think is,
"You've just gotten to me.
You've gotten under my skin,"
And for once you've thought,
"This is a contest I'm not going to win."

Have you ever sat and cried
For no real reason at all?
And with one last sob, and a tremble, you sigh,
"Please don't let me fall."

I don’t want to fall…
I’ve never felt like this before.
It’s like being caught in the middle of a storm.

I know the right thing to do.
But I know the feeling I get when I’m with you.
For the first time I’m happy in my own skin,
You have me completely open.

I feel naked and a tiny bit scared,
And with nothing to compare,
I’m terrified to fall.
And give it my all.

It’s been so long since I’ve felt like this,
Since I have yearned for someone’s kiss.
But the timing is wrong,
And there are a thousand reasons why I can’t and shouldn’t fall.
So I will stay strong.

You won’t see the fear,
And never see me shed a tear.
I’ll be that friend,
And never ask for anything more,
Even if my heart is falling to the floor.

I don’t want to fall.
I don’t want to care.
This situation is nothing new,
It's something I know how to do.
I’ve done it before,
Always the friend,
Never anything more.

As hard as it may seem,
I still feel like I’m walking in a dream.
I don't even know what I’m looking for,
But unlike ever before,
I’m happy in my own skin,
And you have me completely open.

Where do we find our inspiration?

I think that for every person inspiration is manifested in different ways. Some may find it in another person, some may find it in nature, and others may not even know where it comes from, but may be suddenly hit by this intense feeling of creativity or emotion.

I've been thinking about what inspires me. And I figured out that it can't be explained by any one thing. There are so many people and things that inspire me.

Watching my loved ones inspires me to be better; not to be better than them, but to be better for them.

Watching young people being molded into our future leaders inspires me to make a difference in a young person's life. They inspire hope.

Listening to music inspires me to reach deep within my heart and soul to find my true self and my real feelings.

Reading inspires me to find my story.

A kind gesture or a simple smile from a stranger inspires me to pass the same courtesy on to someone else.

Tragedy inspires me to live life to the fullest. We never know how long we have.

My parents inspire me to be brave enough to look for that one person who makes me happy and who is my other half. And that I do deserve to be happy.

Love inspires me to live.
