Can’t Sleep…

*  * *

It was nights like this when I’d write. Bloodshot eyes, whiskey on my breath, and a joint in the hand to help me relax. I’m also typing this with my right hand. A few mistakes but well worth the few puffs I get in before the fire dies out. It’s 3:51 in the mornin’. I miss him like the heavens miss a fallen angel. You feel bad for it up until a certain point. The cats are fed and the dog is filled with poo. Can’t sleep, what am I to do? I made a mistake and prepared for the best, but in my own interest. This joint is working its voodoo. I’m tired now. Goodnight. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down.

Writing 101: To Whom it May Concern

Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What jumps out at you? Start there, and try a twist: write in the form of a letter.

My word was normal.

Dear Normal,

Who freakin’ is? Well not me that’s for sure and I don’t intend on ever being that way. With that said have a great Friday everyone.

Peace,

Lauren

A Moment

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for never giving up on me.

I just wanted to take a moment and let you hear exactly what you mean to me.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank God for bringing me to you.

I just wanted to take a moment and express my love for you.

I just wanted to take a moment and let you know you’re the apple of my eye.

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you my reasons why.

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you I love you for being more than my best friend.

I just wanted to take a moment and pray that these moments will never end.

Sanity

Maybe we are all super messed up, some more than others.

We strive so hard to be normal but we can’t hide our differences.

Where is this confusion that we must be perfect?

Our abnormalities make us who we are and attracts others to us.

Don’t succumb to perfection when imperfect is what you are.

Keep smiling and keep your sanity.
