while you’re in my arms

please don’t stop this now
let world shatter tenfold
while you’re in my arms

Tonight was the last night of filming for Strike Back. I know this because I follow Michelle Lukes and Michael J. Bassett on twitter. This is how much I LOVE the show. And I’m sad that it’s over but excited to watch the new and last season.

let me linger here

poem #1
let me linger here
just outside the glow of you
in the cool shadows

poem #2
I stand alone here
as if frozen to this spot
waiting just for you

I know, I missed yesterday’s poem. Hence two today. I don’t know why I care about writing one whenever I post but I cannot stop myself. LOL

to never read the pages

it’s not enough
to look past the facade
to peer to the soul
it’s too much
to appreciate the effort
to want the essence most
it’s not important
to feel the heart
to know the mind
it’s okay
to set standards low
to feel emptiness
it’s perfectly fine
to expect nothing more
to accept the superficial
it’s all right
to judge by the cover
to never read the pages

Strike Back – Sullivan Stapleton

I read a book last night! Okay, it was a Harlequin romance but still, it’s been awhile! A Princess and a Prince who’ve only known each other as lovers. It was filled with tension and a touch of intrigue and I thought pretty well done. Then it made me think that perhaps my stories don’t have that tension that I like reading in other stories. Or maybe the stakes just don’t seem as high because I know how the story ends. I’m not sure.

So today’s poem… It’s a bit reaction to a sentiment I read on one of the social networks. It made me sad because it seems so indicative of our superficial society. Isn’t it bad enough that “entertainment” presents us with attention whores with no talent? Now we actually have young people who are falling for the pretenses and superficiality of those scripted “real” lives. It seems like it’s all about how you look as opposed to how you think and what you do with that influence. An age old conundrum, I know. But it’s frustrating to see it perpetuated by young people. It bothers me more than it should…

once more
let the sun shine warm
once more
let the breeze touch cool
once more
let the skies open blue
once more

I actually took a nap today. Then I watched Guardians of the Galaxy on blu-ray. It looks so great in HD. :D I did watch the extras as well. Maybe the next time I watch, I’ll turn on the audio commentary.

with new adventures

will the night bring dreams
break away the day’s routine
with new adventures

Just a bit of rain today. Enough for me to stay inside for all my lunch break. A bit of a bummer since I like to go outside and just enjoy the fresh air. Ah well!

so dare to believe

he swears he’s different
(but he’s not)
he swears he’ll change
(but he can’t)
he swears he’ll stay
(but he won’t)
he swears it’s love
(but it’s not)
he swears it’s forever
(but it can’t be)
he swears it won’t happen again
(but it will)
so dare to step away
(you know you must)
so dare to walk away
(you know you can)
so dare to say goodbye
(you know you’ll hurt)
so dare to believe
(you know you deserve better)

It rained all day today. It’s still raining now. Water, blessed water, falling endlessly from the skies above to the land below needing it so desperately. It seems like too much and maybe it is but the earth will drink it all in and hopefully feel replenished when the sun shines again.

Twas interesting reading twitter throughout the day, following the #BayAreaStorm tag. Even though I scoffed a bit at the school districts that actually closed (we did not), I suppose I can see why they did it, considering many places lost electricity and the like. But aren’t schools supposed to be safe? Aren’t schools one of the places that become shelters in times of emergency?

Just a thought.

couldn’t go out during lunch…

will you kiss me now

will you kiss me now
just before we say the words
binding us always

I’m so sleepy. Storm is coming tomorrow. Will it be as bad as predicted?

something that compels my heart

give me a reason
something that compels my heart
to stay here with you

I should be asleep right now. Or at least in bed. Perhaps as soon as I finish writing this post.

My blu-ray delivered today! SO EXCITING! :D I was hoping to watch it after work but alas, it was not in the cards for me. Must take the 3D disc to my dad’s house because he has a 3D player.
