I feel like I’ve been living in a dreamlike state for the past few years

As if I’ve been asleep and under an illusion

Hypnotized by the lure of starting somewhere completely new 

Building a new life with new people and new adventures

But cracks are starting to form along the surfaces 

Exposing the reality beneath

I’m beginning to realize that not everything is as I thought

Or hoped or dreamed they would be

Sometimes I wake up for brief periods of time

Tears streaming down my face

Heart bruised and battered

I scream and cry and try to see life as it really is

But I am guarded by a beast that knows neither compassion nor empathy

This beast is my keeper 

Feeding me with little poisoned truffles of doubt and blame

Frightening me into submission

Part of me wants to escape and be free

The other part wants to see if I can conquer and tame the beast

Changing the fear into a much stronger love

I know there is potential

But I fear that it is doomed to remain under the enchantement

Only time will tell

If I’m able to fully wake and break 

Free from this glass prison 

Of doubt, fear, blame, jealousy

I do know that I cannot trust anyone around me

They are illusions of sincerity

At any moment they could turn

Thus Sleeping Beauty blinks awake for a brief moment

Takes a deep breath

And closes her eyes once more

It’s time you know how I really feel

Uncensored

I need to extract all of these feelings

In order to move on from the hurt

The wounds

From the knife that you held

As you stabbed me repeatedly

In my heart, mind, and spirit

 

I was wary when I started communicating with you

I had been burned by so many men

Used

Manipulated

Dating was losing meaning

I feared that I would no longer know true intimacy

 

You were patient yet persistent

You said such wonderful words

You painted pretty pictures

You wanted me to get used to seeing the word “love”

And faster than I felt I was ready

You coaxed those three words out of me

 

I fell hard and fast

Drinking in the sweet nectar of your promises

We spoke of marriage

We spoke of children

I felt love for the second time in my life

It was my fairy tale dream coming true

My hope was restored

 

And then you betrayed me

You not only changed your mind

But you took back your promises

You lied

You cheated

You manipulated

You used

You took advantage of my sweet soul

You became like all the others before you

 

I loved you

I really did

I trusted you with my heart

And you replaced me quickly

After I finally found the courage to let you go

Causing me to feel even more worthless

 

The Universe has me wrapped in its loving embrace

It is showing me that I don’t need you in my life

In fact, I am in an amazing place

My dreams are being realized and fulfilled

I am meeting people entwined in my life path and destiny

I am growing spiritually

I am becoming more of my true self

I am more beautiful

 

I thought I wouldn’t find anyone as wonderful as you

Well I’ve found several thus far

And all have been better lovers

I don’t need you to get release

Because you’re not even worth my time

I’m not dependent on a relationship to feel complete

I don’t need one

 

I’m content with being independent

I will choose my friends and partners

If I want intimacy, I will get it

Because I have goals

I have a purpose that needs to be fulfilled

And that fuels me much more powerfully

 

My heart has hardened

I don’t trust anyone

Love won’t come easily

I now doubt every single act of compassion and love

I fear commitment

I’m afraid for my heart

Because of you

 

I hope that you’re happy

With whomever you’re with

I hope she can give you what you want

I apparently couldn’t

 

But you know what?

I’ll be fine

I’m stronger than ever

More powerful

I’m going great places

I’m lightyears beyond you

I’m too good for you

 

Hopefully this will help bring me peace

You’ve been haunting me far too long

I shouldn’t waste thoughts on you

I never want to see you again

But you’ll see me

You’ll see me on the silver screen

And on the cover of magazines

You’ll hear my voice on the radio

You won’t be able to rid yourself of me

I will be everywhere

 

But you will be long gone

Goodbye

For Izzy

For the highest bidder on some online forum (no real money was involved), I said that I would write and dedicate a poem for the person. A girl named Izzy won, and so I asked her to share some information about herself with me. On November 14, 2008, I wrote this poem. I should do something like this again.

Midnight blue spans the skies,

Enwrapping the world in a blanket of stars.

Soft whispers of the wind

Lull all to sleep.

Except for one woman

Who sits motionless,

The ocean laid out at her feet.

Her dark eyes can look into souls.

They see all,

The naivety of those who have not

Known pain and sorrow,

The frailty of those who have not

Truly lived with their whole hearts.

Strength of the earth

Seeps into her body.

Power flowing through her veins,

Making nothing impossible to achieve.

Closing her eyes,

She feels the breeze caress her cheek.

An invisible force wraps itself

Around her in a comforting embrace.

The burdens of her heart are lifted

Replaced with peace.

A shooting star trails across the sky,

Leaving a trace of hope

Solely meant for her.

A smile bursts across her face,

Causing her entire being to glow.

One smile from her can brighten the sky.

She can feel her body lighten,

Leaving behind the weight of the world.

Lifting her face to the heavens,

She rises up among the stars,

Becoming a shining beacon herself.

There she resides,

A light to all who know her,

Source for companionship, hope,

And inspiration.

❤ Me

Ocean Dive

Let’s go on an ocean dive. It will be fun and exiting. First we have to put on special equipment. Of course we have to put on air tanks. We have to put on two air tanks because it is going to take a long time. Now we have the gear on. Now we have to jump in the deep water. It is a beautiful world in the ocean. Notice the colorful rocklike creature. It is called Coral. They come in all different shapes and sizes. Also other animals can live near coral. There is a kind of fish that is made of a boxlike skull. They have to live close to coral so they can hide from bigger fish that want to eat them. Uh-oh I see a Great White Shark. It looks hungry. We better hide from the big hungry shark. Good, the shark did not want to eat us. Oh-no the shark is back again. He looks more hungry every second. It is going toward a poor skinny seal. The shark attacked the poor seal. Oh well it is part of nature’s great balancing act. There are many fish in the sea. Look at the pretty Angelfish. Look at the Blue Whale swimming overhead. It has a huge giant body. Oh man, we have to swim back to the boat. I hope we can go on a dive that was as great as this one.

The End

Nature (a poem)

Nature Nature here it is,

Wherever the outdoors is.

From birds, animals, plants or anything,

On a summer or spring day watch out for the Bee’s sting.

There are millions of species out here,

Fish, plants, and also Deer.

Some of these creatures are dying out,

We want to see the Blue Whale’s spout.

So please help Nature survive,

And do not knock down a bee hive.

How Arizona Feels About Her Students

Arizona can feel many different ways about her students. She feels helpful when a student is having a hard time understanding the work. She goes and helps the student. She felt kind when a student didn’t get the right answer. She just said “try again.” She was caring when someone got hurt. She put a wet cloth on the wound. She was loving and she hugged them when they got good and bad grades. Arizona is a very nice teacher.

Cycle Break 3-31-99

I had a very fun cycle break. Even though it was short. My dad got me a box that I could put my beanie babies in. It goes under my bed. My brownie troop went on a field trip to Bob Kramer’s Marionettes. A man told us about how they make the puppets. After they told us about puppets they put on a show called Sloopy’s Big Romance. It is kind of like Cinderella but there are no bad people in it. Last Sunday night my family went over to our friend’s house for dinner. On Monday we went to the Magic House. Yesterday we went to Lone Elk Park. We also went to a bird place. My favorite bird was Daniel, he was a Perigrine Falcon.

If I Were an Immigrant

We are immigrants.

We feel many feelings. I am very sad that there wasn’t enough food where I used to live in India. I feel very mad that there is a war in China. My Mom and I are lonely because my Dad died in Poland. And my mom did not want to live there any more. Now we live in America. We have to work harder in factories where children really shouldn’t work. We want to have our homes back.

Fairy Tales

My favorite fairy tales are Cinderella and The Golden Goose. I like Cinderella because it tells you that even if you are a maid you can have dreams and maybe they will come true. My favorite part of Cinderella is when the shoe fits on her foot and she gets to marry the prince. What The Golden Goose tells you is do not be so greedy that you can get carried away. My favorite part is when all the people stuck to the goose go to ask if a boy could marry a princess. But the king said he would have to build a boat. So the boy built a boat and he got to marry the princess.

Dogs (a poem)

Dogs Dogs all around.

Doing flips and touching the ground.

I like dogs so much,

I have one named Dutch.

Throw a ball for them to catch,

It is sort of like playing fetch.

Teach them tricks to learn,

And teach them how to catch a fern.

If you want one,

Call 333-111.

I have dogs all around,

I have so much I can barely see the ground.

One of the tricks i teach is jumping through fire.

And another is chewing through a thick wire.

My dogs are as smart as they can be,

I love them and they love me.

Sports

I like sports because I like to see the players show thier talents that they do best. I know that Mark Mcgwire shows the talent he shows best. I know that Tara Lipinski shows her talent that she does best also. I like to play sports because I would like to get stronger and I learn new things.
