I dream of you often, dear fragment of my imagination. I long for you still, so I’m burdened by this hopeful frustration. 

God, please grant me more patience.

There’s no fear here at all. I’m ready and willing; I’ve prepped for the fall.

Are two hearts really two hearts? Are we lonely, feeling outcast til the love starts? 

Two souls meeting here in the black dark. Emerge as one in the bright light.

You’re there hoping that you’re wrong. I’m here praying that I’m right. Reality hurts us both, so I’m closing my eyes. What a beautiful sight…

We sit there, staring out at the sea. Those playful eyes on the waves. That wondrous mind on me.

Your arm laced round mine. My heart is yours, so I hardly mind. Ring finger’s blinding. Life is sublime. This is a time worth rewinding. Two souls in their prime.

You whisper, “You’re perfect.” I lean my head against your shoulder, say, “I knew you were worth it.”


Just frivolous thoughts. To some, they’re just playthings. But they matter to me ‘cause I know you can’t have the things you can’t see. 

So I dream of you dreaming back. I dream of chasing down things I lack. I dream of you beating this rogue attack. I’ve heard you’ve been straight to hell and back… 

…but I know you can take it.

You’re stronger than death itself. That’s why I feel you and no one else. It’s you— that fire here in my chest. It’s you— inspiring me to be my best.


Just frivolous thoughts. To some, they’re just playthings. ‘Cause to you I’m a ghost. Overly optimistic at the most.

I’m so sorry for caring… being so bold, overbearing. Just got a lot of love to give. Thought you wouldn’t mind me sharing.


Hi, everyone! I decided to do something a little different today. Actually, I’ve been planning to make some changes on here for awhile.  I’m not sure if any of you were aware or not, but I started a little poetry site around the time I started this blog. While I haven’t stopped scribbling things down, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything over there.
As it turns out, I no longer have the time to keep up with multiple blogs. While I’d love to share some of my poetic musings, it seems as though having to log in somewhere else to post them is just WAAAYYY beyond my pay grade (not that I even get paid for this… wish I did!) Anyhow, I’ll be moving all of my poems from there to here at some point. I hope you guys don’t mind.
I’ve been feeling a bit down the last week or two for reasons that remain a mystery to me. Something is eating away at me, but I’m having a hard time clearly identifying what it is. I have a hunch, but… meh. It can’t be helped. This would be something completely out of my personal control. With any luck, the tides will change in my favor. I’m sure you’ll hear about it if they do.
In the meantime, I wrote this as a means of helping me turn this strange mood into something… useful? I dunno. I’ll let you guys be the judge. Maybe you will share your thoughts with me. But for now, I’m going to go distract myself with Fallout 4. 🙂
As always, if you enjoyed this little blurb, I’d greatly appreciate you giving it a like or sharing it with someone you think would also enjoy it.
Also, don’t forget to follow this blog for more stories and ramblings! Ciao for now! ❤

Just a girl lost in a daydream who is trying her best to color inside of the lines like everyone else, but is finding the act of smearing watercolor outside of the lines much, much more enjoyable.
