slipping away.

    I held you in my arms.
I knew what that meant
fleeting ecstacy, stand still
for me to love what I've dreamt.
    Because your words inspire
wisdom and strength
they help me to see myself
for what I am and what I 'aint.
   Not every parting is tragedy
some words have been said
to each their own and to love myself
not all is lost or dead.

    Not sure how to separate
from something seeming to be mine
to hold you, touch you, kiss you
you were only you, all the time.
    So easy to believe
those sincere and honest eyes
nothing to send me away or far
there's no echo in my cries
    But what will be of us
if there was an us anyway
not to need you I can do
but I want you to stay.
    We both don't know how to do it
or know really if it will break
through the cracks and underneath
Im searching to be brave.
   What we don't want is to be broken
or feel ties down or incomplete
but unlike another man before
with you they couldnt compete.
   Space between us now
unanswered messages and calls
only waves and gestures
amidst common walls.
   Will we connect again
and see how it will be?
do you really care at all?
do you really care for me?

    Now is not the time
we didnt know we'd feel
thought playing house was fun
didnt know it be so real.
    I got a little taste of you
and now I thirst for more
but love freedom I do now
and need to love myself and to grow

   Cant escape what's done.
Dont want to run ahead.
I want to hold you in my arms
and feel you next to me in my bed.
    Is there a way for us to be
together and apart
but please spare me lust's brevity
if you'll only break my heart.
   We didnt know it would work so good
we were'd prepared for the fall
But I dont want to leave your spell
I don't want you gone at all.

   How can I have you but be with myself?
how can I keep you,
but not leave my heart on the shelf?
how are you ok, and I'm sighing in dreams
you've changed the game, rockstar
you changed this little girl,
brought out the woman in me.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
