A Little Poetry For You

A Little Poetry For You

And yes, they are the sad kind of poems.

Today I would like to show you some of my writing. I'm doing this because I'm late on my article, and the one I had prepared didn't save. I don't remember exactly what I have written. I felt like crying when I found that it hadn't saved.

However, today you won't hear me rant. I won't give you some amazing music recommendations. I will just show you some of my writing.

I like writing short stories, fiction novels, and poems. Someday, I would like to publish a book with my writing. I wouldn't mind if it was a memoir, a novel, or a collection of short stories, essays, or poems. But, today, it'll be my poems that I will show you. Only two, since they are kind of long. I wrote them when I was not in a good place, but now, I look at them and try to get strength from them.

The first poem: "The Infinite Sea of You"

we thought we had the world in our hands
smoking it in rolled pieces of paper
eyes twinkling as tendrils of smoke drifted away
and we thought we had it all
as the world filled us with its sweet, killer poison.
remember the night when you said we were infinite
even though I felt so finite
but it had been your words the ones that had made me want more
infinite like the grains of sand on a beach
infinite like the universe
and you had told me I deserved it all and nothing
and you had me wrapped around your fingers easily
remember when we had climbed Mt. Everest
and I had told you that I loved you
and you had laughed away the words
saying how perfect the moment was
when I had thought that you had meant the words back
and that you were just too fucked up to admit that you loved me
but with your sweet lies you pushed me away
but I was blinded by the bright light of your glory
I thought I had it all
when I had nothing
but caramel lies and empty dreams
so the world finally killed me with its sweet killer poison
your dark symphony was the one that had enthralled me
it was the one that had made me realize that you were infinite
and I was finite
because you were everything to me
while I was nothing but a distraction to you
from the moments you wanted to escape so badly from
but tell me
if I had let you go sooner
who would've distracted you
who would've protected you from the black haze
in the end
would there have been an infinite you?

Second poem: "Hollow Vessel"

I was supposed to feel something
but those never butterflies never came
as you hands explored
parts of my body unknown to the world
I was supposed to feel your lips burning
as they brushed my skin
branded my chest
I was supposed to feel something
but I felt empty
while you tried to feel every inch of my skin
but I like you
and I don't know what to do
because my mind is like a hurricane
thrashing and destroying
yelling out for things to be said and done
and wrecking dreams I once had
but as you touched me
I was not ignited
I was supposed to feel something
as you branded my chest
but the feeling never came

I know, I know. Maybe you might be wondering who broke my heart. Trust me, nobody had at that moment. It's hard to explain how I came up with them. Sure, I wasn't in a good place; I just had a lot to let out. But these poems? I'm not totally aware of where they came from.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
