You Are Beautiful, But You Are More Than That

This was on my mind for about twelve hours now.


All you said was that you enjoyed my writing. The way my words were splattered onto paper as if there was an actual crime scene on my piece. I wanted to tell you that it wasn't a big deal, but you said otherwise. Not a lot of people have seen my work, yet you've decided that I was the creator of English literature.

You hinted, not subtly, to write about you one day. What would I write about you? The way your eyebrows furrowed so gently when I told you I couldn't concentrate? Or what about the way you yawned so quietly, making your eyes smaller? "Do you even think of me to write about me?" you asked. I don't think about your beautiful brown eyes, ready to be delved in. I don't think about the way you smile, making your very vibrant teeth show off even more.

I think about your stories, and the great detail you put into that one moment. It almost makes me feel like I was there. I think about your heart, always trying to put emphasis on why life should be experienced in its full glory. I think about the amount of sleep you get and how your day was. I think about how you may be a little older than me, but it doesn't change the fact that I still get worried about you. Your hands tell me stories that I know you don't want to converse about, but you acknowledge that you were there.

The time gaps between our messages are a great amount, but I know you want to make a better life for your mother. You are beautiful, indeed. But you're more than that. I hate to admit it, but I like you. All you said was that you enjoyed my writing, but I wanted to say I enjoy the thought of you.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
