all in black and white
You enter in fullblown technicolor
Nothing is the same after tonight
If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn't change a thing
Now that you're here
Yeah, love is a verb here in my room
Here in my room, here in my room
hundred years to catch up but better late than never.
Today is the centenary of the start of the Gallopolli Landings.
58000 Allied troops and 87000 Turks all killed in the bloodiest event of World War One that lasted an incredible 8months.

then again; who's doesn't? right).... I just found a part of me that's been missing for a long time now. It came to my realization a couple days ago that I am friendly....what I mean is that I do seek friendship and alliances.....for the longest time I believed in a lie about...
off by boys and dating. I had made it up in my mind to pursue a career and education and leave dating for adults. However i remember i use to take a certain bus to school and i was sitting in the back one day and it was crowded. I felt as if someone was watching me but i wasnt...
for as long she could remember
she was on the outside
for as long as she could remember
she was a mistake
for as long as she could remember
she felt out of place
for as long as she could remember
all she wanted was a friend
for as long as she could remember
she was never...
ANZAC DAY (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps)
Did you watch the movie Gallipoli?
ANZAC Day commemorates the landing of 75,000 allied forces on the beach of Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. The casualties on both sides were heavy. Of the Allied Forces-from Britain...
or 6, there was a little boy called Jason in one of my classes. He wore glasses, was very shy like me, and had a patch over one of his eyes. One day I blurted out something silly over what the sticker on his face was for, and since then we became the best of friends, and I used...
so fragile, so naive, so caring and trusting. 14 years old, aching to be 16 because I thought age labeled a person. I thought it would label me just as mature as I felt on the inside. I thought, that when I turned 16, I would be a woman. I was wrong. My 16th birthday opened a...
because I know I'll never have the courage to send it to you directly. I doubt you'll ever read it on here, but at least, I'll feel much better knowing you might eventually come across this letter, one day, when I'm gone far far away.
For the past three years, the three years...
since I've seen you, but I can remember everything about your face. No one talks to me like you did. I hope wherever you are, you know that. I hope you revel in the fact that since you've been gone, no one has come close to taking your place. I sometimes think you were the last...
before all the alcohol, before ruining my life. I was so hurt, and depressed, and I wanted to shut everything out. That’s the last thing I remembered before I began my discovery with drugs. I wanted to escape the feeling of pain, heartbreak, and …that is the real last time I...

As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...
Mine was when I was much younger than I am now. I was walking through the field fenced in on two sides by trees. As I walked I followed a crow gliding upward to the tops of the tree line south of me. Instead of following the cawing bird with my gaze, I continued to look up into...
trouble getting us to do chores. My dad would approach the problem by giving us a list of chores to do. I would happily do my dad's chore list carefully and with out question. I don't think the difference was because it was from my dad. I think the difference was that the list...

When I was 7 years of age my family was really poor. My mother worked 3 jobs and we really never saw her. It was one of those rare Winters in Seattle where it was snowing all most every day.
On Christmas Eve my mother told all 5 of us kids that we we not going to receive...
keeping my head up
For what I thought was so right
Guess I'm not right always
And I thought love was a fight
You could tear each other down
Then come back to life
Guess I don't live always
Your set backs add up
I was wrong about us
Don't slam that door shut, just yet...
cold air conditioning winter only. I slept upstairs in a large one room bedroom with five beds. All the kids ( seven) slept there. There was no glass in the two large windows and the only thing that held out the cold air was two home made inserts made of rough lumber. My Momma...

and the spaghetti flied off my plate onto the floor. It was supposed to be funny but I only remembered you stood behind me and grabbed fistfuls of my hair with both hands pulling hard and shook me around like dirty laundry. I cried so hard I couldn't breathe.
staring at you pulling clothes from a dryer
And I'm wondering how I got here
'Cause it seems some how I keep getting stuck in the mire
I needed this more than I knew
And I let you down and I said I'm sorry
But the light, it falls on my castle walls
And my basketballs...
I OWE MY MOTHER
1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
"If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning."
2. My mother taught me RELIGION.
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet."
3. My mother...
Next to my Grandfather's house was a small store/post office/gas station. Besides a few taverns the small store was the only place of commerce in the tiny village. The store sort of looked like a house and sort of looked like a store. It had a brownish ...
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages of a book full of death;
Reading how we'll die alone.
And if we're good we'll lay to rest,
Anywhere we want to go.
In your house I long to be;
Room by room patiently,
I'll wait for you there...

and I learned about depression and anorexia and self harm and anxiety in health class and I would wonder how people came to that point and I would think that I would never be any of those things, yet here i am, years later, at 3 am, sobbing to myself, debating on whether or not...
where the crowd had gathered
You said the bow is breaking
You want to get some coffee or something
Float by the crowd that scatters
I found my people and nothing else matters
Bullhorns that feed back in stormy skies
No one listens but it's so hot when you try
And I live in the numbness now
In the background
I do the things we did before
I walk Haight Street to the store
And they say where's that crazy girl
You don't get drunk on red wine and fight no more
I don't see you anymore since the hospital
The plans I make still...
You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter
You are the best thing that’s ever been mine.
Flash forward and we’re taking on the world together,
And there’s a drawer of my things at your place.
the land of sleepy eyes and corn filled horizons, you came to me as just a little baby.
I sat in that ripped vinyl chair hardly able to reach the ground with my timid toes and I realized I was all grownup.
As I watched your weary gaze take in the novelties of time I knew I loved...
but faces in front of me
Racing through the void in my head
To find traces of a good luck academy
Sparks ignite and trade them for thought
About no one and nothing in particular
Washed the sickened socket and drove
Resent nothing, there's goodwill inside of me
for the first time in half a lifetime. We talked and laughed and danced through the years sharing our lives my childhood friend. I was unaware a voice could be comforting soothing and yet tantalizing. We are so different and yet the same. Half touched memories of our youth...
that I can't take anymore
Before you take a swing
I wonder what are we fighting for
When I say out loud
I want to get out of this
I wonder is there anything
I'm going to miss
I wonder how it's going to be
When you don't know me
How's it going to be
the road at an empty parking lot. If one didn't know the history of my town, it would seem that this parking lot serves no purpose as there is no building for it to belong to. And truth be told it doesn't serve a purpose anymore. It's just an abandoned parking lot that rarely...
Alzheimer's known as Jack. He'd sing so beautifully it sometimes brought tears to your eyes. He didn't like the staff who condescended him, had aggressive outbursts chasing them with a walking stick. He was always trying to escape from the home, and his singing seemed to be the...
