All false, nothing but smoke and mirrors and lip gloss and hair product. False images, false faces, empty eyes. She gazes into mirrors all day long, glossy and flat and sleek and silver. Only reflections exist, no longer people, humans. Clay waiting to be molded. Shaped. Refined. Stylized. Taking a reflection of something living, a flat, poor rendition of beauty, and transforming it into yet another image. Empty, empty, eyes gazing at reflections of life, but unable to retain their own.

did i ever mention that you’re the brightest light in my day?
that merely a single word from you can turn my sullen face
into a blooming flower of smiles?
because that’s what you do to me.
& i just thought you should know.

I do wonder what the upper floor hides. I do wonder what would happen if I got in the lift, pressed the last button and went all the way up. Nobody quite knows what’s up there – then again, isn’t mystery a wonderful thing?

people amazed me today.
i’ve spent so many years being jaded & suspicious.
but today… they made me love my career.
today i realized how fortunate i am to be
where i am in life,
because of the people
who helped me get here
& the people who are helping me stay here.
i can never truly express the magnitude
of the transition between
& eternal gratitude.

so who was really on trial there? was it really i who deserved the inquisition? was i truly the criminal? or was it you, with your rot-evil words & accusations, with your uncertainty, fear & jealousy that you so expertly projected onto me? i’m starting to think, darling, that i should have been judge, jury, & executioner at that one.

Oh, to begin…. I began when you kissed me the first time. No, I began when you told me while I brushed my teeth how you loved me, how you’d wait for me. You showed me an eloquence I never thought possible, & I am a writer. You showed me love I never knew before in my life.

My darlings are probably the most darling darlings I’ve ever seen. In fact other darlings aren’t nearly as darling as my darlings, because they are so darling. I hope the darlings know they are darling because darling is what they are. The darlings are darling and that’s that.

Banks have been screwing us over for years. From overdraft fees to sky rocketing interest rates; we need another system for keeping our money secure and away from these thieves.

It was 7:30 pm. I was at a slumber party with my girlfrends at school. We played truth or dare as a bedtime game. Stupid huh? I never really liked playing any sorts of idiotic games made up by adolescent teenagers.

yummy, winter, I love pea and ham soup and pumpkin, sp many flavours, delicious, I think I need some soup. Soup is handy for all things, colds and sickness (chicken with lemon and honey is the best)!! Soup is amazing and taste delicious such a simple food that not many people believe is nice.

Cathedral. I had to look at the word very carefully as I typed it, as it’s a very hard word to spell. A very important word, nonetheless. What even is a cathedral? Something holy, I believe. Possibly to do with architecture.

Straw is simple, like me. Its just a part of a whole. Its also on hats sometimes. I dont know what else to say…

My nerves are jelly. They cannot be contained. My emotions are water. They slip through the sifted columns of my brain, my heart, my soul….and drip slowly and sadly into an unmarked grave never to be heard of again. I hope I’m watering a happy spirit.

I’m a salt freak and so is he – that is what we have in common licking our lips
and looking for the next potato chip…if it wasn’t for the silver ring I gave him
he would never be cell phone stalking me… if it weren’t for the yummy foot
massages he gives me I wouldn’t text him back – but here we are two salt
freaks with our individual fetishes… not too mention the quiet kissing kind
of melancholy or bittersweet. cause we both kind of get off on bitter too.
bitter coffee, veges and kisses –

predict the impossible. predictions are what makes me and you go forward. we sit here, everyday, and day dream as we predict our futures. noone knows if our predictions will be correct but you can only guess.. take risks and predict.

“Sideburns are ugly.” This is my first thought as the man with the two parallel streaks of hair aligning his face strode purposefully into the office. My second was that, aside from the sideburns, the man was unusually attractive. Quite peculiar.

i never went to camp as a child…unless, of course, you count the tents i would make of sheets and wooden lattice backed dining room chairs in my dining room. i did have the occasional sleeping bag outback just ask the sky turned to dusk, but my mother always reminded me to be in before “the street lights came all the way on.” ahh the restrictions of the “great outdoors.”

one thing i always hated, and still hate to this day is ironing. i really see no need in it, and avoid it at all costs…cursing it’s hiss and teflon coated bottom, and at the same time praising the powers that be for nature’s own cordless wonder…steam. ahhhhh men.

i remember being little, and at the start of each hot summer day granny taking out a permanent marker…scratching intently on a cup “this one is yours for the day,” she’d say. and i would gnaw along the edge further solidifying that fact…yes, it was mine for the day. it bore my mark.

I was never much of a drinker, my best friend was and you see where that got her? I miss her an awful lot. She’s alive but is she really alive? Yeah I don’t think that is a way to live. not at all.

so of all the things that are attainable in this word, luxury is almost mythic. it is mink, and rolls’…caviar, rich white haired white woman, glamorous 1960’s black women from movies, or a nice tall glass of milk at the end of a long hard day topped off with a macadamia nut cookie. luxury can be that simple.

She was determined to love him no matter the consequences. And by the same token – he was determined not to be loved.

I had a plan once, not sure what it was, or what I was supposed to do with it, I just know that I had one. Was I going to build something? Cook something? Murder someone? I can’t remember, or choose not to remember. I think that’s the scariest part, not remembering.

I think ego has alot tod o with e the confidence that people get when they think they know it all. I think parents did this to them. its not neccesarily bad to have an ego per say but maybe an inflated one is what i’m thinking of. People who constintaly think they are “bad ass” or awesome annoy me I think they need some humility. I think they need to think they are not the coolest shit ever. However I do think its important to improve ones ego.

His ego was the size of an elephant… and it was an elephant I wanted to ride. Glimmering Indian saddle and all.

having something in your life to live for. a purpose is your carnal reason to keep going, to live more and more. for some people they lose their purpose, their reason for living. but its so important to keep one with you always. to keep going when there’s nothing to go for.

What is my purpose? I often wonder if I will ever find out what my purpose in life is? I extend myself out into the universe, allowing myself to be pulled in the direction of …. purpose? Is that how it works? When do I find out?!

She was a trusted friend and confident – and then one day she went bat shit, round the bend, all fired up crazy. It was stunning to watch, actually. Not that I’d want to see something like that again – but still, entertaining.
She stalked me for some time but after a few weeks she quit calling. But once, I trusted her.
