Poetry On Odyssey: No Intentions

Poetry On Odyssey: No Intentions

He was a devil in disguise

He was a devil in disguise

I was blinded by his charm as he was continuously feeding me these poisonous lies.

His words were like music to my ears,

He told me exactly what I wanted to hear.

Ended up drowning me in heartbreak and tears.

His touch was like magic that sent chills down my spine,

But our love story was quite tragic no matter how hard I tried.

I gave him my all, showering him with love and affection,

But he still let me fall with no intentions of catching.

He lead me right off to the end of the ledge.

Watched me sink down while I was gasping for breath.

He told me he wanted me yet pushed me to the edge.

Although my heart is still beating, this boy caused me an unfortunate death.

Our whole 'relationship' was one big tragedy.

Like Romeo and Juliet, just not a fantasy.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

I Am Single This Valentine's Day And That's OK

A letter to all the single people this Valentine's Day.


"I hate Valentine's Day" or "Valentine's Day is overrated" are two statements I will not be saying this year. As you scroll through your social media, all you see are those statements being posted by almost every person that is single, or even people in relationships. I am single this year and I will not be participating in the negativity.

You see, a Valentine's Day as a couple is stressful. Yes, the outcome of the night could be great, but getting to such greatness requires stress. Couples spend all this time trying to plan the "perfect" night instead of worrying about the other things going on in their lives. Mind you, that perfect night that was planned could end completely different than expected. I would just rather not deal with that stress and pressure this year.

So, I will be single this Valentine's Day, but nothing is wrong with that. While the couples are on their dates, I will either be at home or with my other single friends. My day does not need to be miserable and depressing, I can do what I choose to, such as:

1. Stuff my face with whatever food I want

2. Take a long bath

3. Treat me to a spa day

4. Watch Netflix all day

5. Hang with my friends



Not that I don't do almost all of those on a daily basis, but you get what I am trying to say. The day does not have to be me moping around the house complaining how I'm single and the day just sucks, I can do something with myself or my friends and still have fun.

My day will be full of love whether that be from my friends or self-love and relaxing. I do not have to deal with the stress of taking hours to get ready for a date and can spend the whole day in my sweatpants (also not that I do that on a daily basis either).

Bravo for the couples who will be spending their day together and full of appreciation for each other. I will appreciate myself and not dwell on being single. Valentine's Day can be a good day for everyone, single or in a relationship. Enjoy and do not stress too much.
