You Say…

July 21, 2011


You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains. You say that you love the sun, but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines. You say that you love the wind, but you close your windows when wind blows. This is why I am afraid, you say that you love me too.
– William Shakespeare


In The Other Room

July 16, 2011

It’s a party
It’s just you and me
They all rush around
we stand still
and meet
In the other room

Push against the wall
Grab my hair,
My face
Whatever you can
doesn’t matter
as long as we touch
In here

And it’s the outline of your face
I see it in the dark,
Up close
That smile before the kiss
That smile
That kiss

I could waste my life away
In the other room.
– JL Knapp

So you walk around doing nothing but your best. Being kind, working hard, playing by the rules, loving openly without restrictions and just generally trying to keep everything above water. But sometimes, despite your best efforts people will treat you like shit; they will demean you and act below the line of acceptable behavior.

Before you go off and blame yourself  just remember: some people are just miserable bastards. They just are, and there is nothing you can do about it. Don’t lower yourself to their level. Tell yourself you are loved, remind yourself it’s their problem and not yours and move on! Tomorrow is a new day!

And you know what? Take pity on that miserable bastard, because no matter what they won’t be satisfied with anything. You stop to smell the roses and know what genuine happiness is. So hold onto that, you are already 10 steps ahead!

And I know sometimes it’s hard, and it hurts, but please, don’t ever let the miserable bastards get you down!

In order to improve your mood on a shitty day, wear a flower in your hair.

Am I right ladies?
