H A B I T

When I was in high school I never ate breakfast. I hated it because when I DID try to eat breakfast I felt like I was gonna toss my cookies. Once I was a senior I decided to start eating breakfast because after the numerous diet places I’d been to they would stress that “Breakfast was the most important meal of the day” because well it really is. So after a month of dreading breakfast I’d make myself eat it and that was that. I’d formed a habit to help me in the long run. I think a big success in my losing weight when I had was forming a habit. Waking up early at 7AM,eating breakfast,going to the gym and eating lunch at Noon and dinner before 6:30 everyday. It gave me structure and formed a healthy habit. Now, I’m not saying everyone should do exactly that, but that even forming…

I was listening to someone today saying ” I don’t want to date a fat girl, it will lower my standards” which to me made no sense. I understand that people are attracted to certain things, thats just how it works. Most males however are attracted to the skinny women and dating a big girl will make you look “bad”. Is that because the world and people around you have told you that skinny is beautiful or because you think that? I suppose if we are really going to get into it than maybe men are more attracted to a skinny woman because they are healthier (most of the time) and can bare children, blah blah blah. I’m gonna stop blundering now and get to the point. Not one type of body is more beautiful than the other. HAVE YOUR OWN BRAIN. Who cares about if your “status” will go…

October Comes

His boot steps
echo throughout
the house with
shotgun in hand

My mother
pulls me into
her chest with
trembling arms

Empty liquor
bottles scattered
in rage and need
to prove a point

Dog’s breath
heaving from a
man who has no
collar, or conscious

Storm clouds
gather in the
backdrop of an
old September sky

As I count
backward in
my head until
I fall asleep.

A day will Come

A day will come
When you’ll look in the mirror and stare straight into your soul.
Tears will roll down your cheeks and your heart will pound so fast you think you’re gonna fall to the ground.
You’re going to analyze every inch of your body, every pore, freckle and hair will be dissected and after all you can do is just stand there.
You feel like you’re the only one with this lonliness and no one understands you, no one gets it, no one can see the pain because all you do is smile and laugh but no one sees you’re ready to scream.
When that day comes and you’re staring into those eyes
You should know you’re beautiful
That your body is perfect the way it is and every pore, freckle and hair is meant to be there, right in that spot.
You should know that you’re not…

“I love you wit…

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” -Pablo Neruda

This is dedicated to my wonderful girlfriend of three years. Happy Anniversary, babe.
