Is it swirling or is it gnawing, This black mass inside of me. Is it darkness or is it night, Waiting for the sun to peek over the horizon. Will it leave or is it a thorn, Forever inside and torturing me. Is it my creation or my creator’s doing, Will anything come to pass at all. Is it because of me or inflicted on me, What have I done or not done. Is it hope or is it fear,… Read more »

Day of Days Of dazed days and crazed days And Mmmm, what’d you say? And is decaf okay? Day of days of days Sunrise and sun rays And moonshine on Thursdays And in the storm is praise Day of days of days of days After day after day Living for Saturday And the freedom of One Day

Here I am, in my cubicle, shivering with fever chills, wishing I could be home in bed. I am, however, thankful for the heat of this Atkins frozen dinner chicken broccoli Alfredo. Except that when I opened it, it spewed cheese sauce all over my January 2014 desk calendar. This is why I can’t have nice things. I usually move my food to the side of my desk calendar, but every other square inch of my desk is covered with… Read more »

What Is What is singing Sweetly as the birds If I cannot sing your name? What is sun shining Warmly as the truth If it lights not your face? What is loving Purely as the Lamb If I cannot love you?

For It Knows And though I would swear This beating heart would stop For without you there is less need It keeps on still because it knows It will beat with yours again And though I would think These laughing lips would silence For without you there is less joy They smile still because they know They will meet with yours again And though I would wish This aching soul would fly home For without you there is less comfort… Read more »

I, who stretched my neck in bravado, Yield to you in strength. I, whose pride held high my head, Look up to you in awe. I, whose trembling legs fought mountains, Stand firmly beside you. I am stronger for you, For I am stronger with you. Born of your rib, I am complete. Completely yours, forever.

Happy Friday!!!!!!!! IT’S THE WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hmm hmm. I apologize for that. Anyway, perhaps it’s because, oh, you know, I’m planning a wedding. But I am seeing wedding-inspired style EVERYWHERE. And I love it. I’m particularly seeing more blue shoes than I’ve ever seen in my life. Let’s take a look at some of the best blue shoes I’ve found. This is the “it” trend right now– and a way for a bride to incorporate “Something Blue.” And I love it…. Read more »

Ladies. And some Gents. We’ve all been there. Excited to buy a new foundation. Approaching the counter (or the aisle in Walmart, let’s be real) with unashamed hopes, trusting the Sephora/Ulta/Clinique counter employee with all our expectations of achieving flawless skin. You try on their recommendation. And it looks lovely. So you buy it. And then the real world comes crashing down and you look sallow and possibly jaundiced in natural sunlight. Which really isn’t helping the fact that you’re… Read more »

Hey everyone! I hope your weekend was marvelous. I have two midterms this week which means I spent most of my weekend crouched over my laptop, pretending to study. In one of my recent trysts around the internet, I found mention of Mila Kunis’s Cosmo cover. And Oh. My. Goodness. She is a stunnah. It’s one of the most gorgeous makeups I’ve seen in a while. It’s really an easy look, when you get down to it. It took me… Read more »

…To bring you a poem. Oklahoma recap will be tomorrow because I’m far too exhausted and pressed for time today. Without further ado: Untitled Island. I. Land. Cerulean sapphires Floating in blood. Cut from the Eye. The I. Land. Evergreen arbors Sitting in dark. Hiding the sun From the Eye. The I. Land.
