Just About a Year AgoJust about a year ago,You answered with "I guess,"When I asked you if I could be the girl by your side,The one you smiled down on, the one your friends all knewWhom you introduced to Mom and Dad as your girlfriend.Just about a year ago,Was when I first held your hand.I should have known then where it was going to lead:To phone calls and text messages and all those wonderful hugsFrom the first time, to right before we said goodbye the last.Just about a year ago,We drove around together.You had no license, so I did it,But you always felt bad,Such a gentleman.Just about a year ago,I found out some of what makes you laugh,A little of what makes you mad(But remember, your sister looks up to you)And a whole lot that makes you smile.Just about a year ago,I opened my heart to your possibilities,And got a wonderful reward.I found my best friend, my partner in crime,The most faithful man in my life.Just about a year ago,I gave love one more try,And what I got, was the
WhoopsTell me a secret.-What do you want to know?Anything.-Anything?I just want to know about you.-Well, ummm, I don't know what to say.Come on, there must be something.-No, not really.How can there be nothing?-Because I don't know you well enough.I won't judge you, I just want to get to know you.-Why don't you ask me simple questions, you know, my favorite color or something to start off with.Fine. What's your favorite color?-GreenCool. Cool. Lucky.-Lucky?Green's a lucky color. Tell me a secret.-No. That was one question. That doesn't earn you the right to hear a secret.Why not?-Because I said so.Tell me a secret.-No.Tell me a secret.-No.Is that the secret?-Nope.Then tell me a secret.-No! I'm embarrassed.Why?

He SaysHe asks me why I print so much,Why I can't just get everything I need at once,And save myself some time.But honey, I like the exercise.He says that I should change the color of my hair,That I would look better with lighter hair,More people would look at me, he says.Darling, what I look like is just for me.He tells me that I need to change the way I think about myself;Confidence is better than looking at the groundAnd need to show people that I am proud.Baby, how can I be proud of me when you're not?He claims that I need to let my inhibitions goJust relax and let him have his way with me;I'll feel better in the long run.Sweetie, consent is sexy.He begs me not to turn my back on him,That he needs me to stayI'm the only one who can save his life.You bastard, I'm walking away from you, to live my life for me again.
Can You Ever Forgive Me?I just have one question for you,It might not be what you want to hear.But I feel that I need to say itBecause it will make me feel better.Are you willing to listen?(No that wasn't it.)I just want to know one little thing:Can you ever forgive me?Would you ever be able to forgive me for the hurt I caused,Maybe find a place for me in your life again?I miss you, I really do,And those are words I never thought I'd say.For months I blamed you for all the hurt,All of the things that I went through.I thought it was you that was making me cry at night,Making me walk through these hallsLooking at all the happy facesAnd wonder what they had that I didn't.(Though now I know, it was me.)I was the one who made me sad,I was the one who tore us apart.You might have given me the matches,But I set the fire.And I watched it burn.I blamed you for everything,But it's all my fault.And now, I just miss you.No, don't panic, I'm not trying to get you back,I'm sure you're happy with
Falling in LoveHow easy do you think it is?Is it one of those things where you trip,Fall and discover that you have landed in a happy placeFull of rainbows and sunshine,Where they are always happy to catch you and nothing goes wrong?Or is it one of those things you have to fight for?Pulling teeth one by oneJust to have a chance of crossing that line.That line, that thin little line in the ground,So simple to cross, but few ever get up the courage to do it.Have you ever done it?Have you ever crossed that lineAnd taken a chance on a person that you weren't 100% sure you could trust?How did it feel?Were you letting go? Or just settling?I like to think that people who cross that lineAt least have a chance at being happy.Was it that way with you?(I am trying to figure out whether I should do it.)Maybe you knew for a fact that you'd be happy.But how do you know?To me, love seems more like a roulette wheel,Your chances are low,But the pay-off could be great.It might be a b

Writing LoveBlack lines running down my arm,Spelling out one simple word: LOVE.What does it mean? And for what cause?How can any sort of writing make a change?How can I make anyone see this little word I have written here,On display for all to see?There is a cause, a fight that we all must strive to fight,Yet no one cares to see.People all just turn their heads,And try to say it's all okay.They don't even want to see,The terrible battles we fight every day.I don't know if they will ever end,If there will ever be a way to resolve this pain.So many people have been affected,And so many more have not realized it is their time.I can see everything falling apart around me,Feeling each person's suffering as sure as if it were inside my own skin.This fading ink symbolizes all that I take up,Shows that I believe so firmly in my cause,I mean to help those that cannot help themselves;I want to show the world how much we can hurt ourselves if left unchecked.I stand proud, I s
Hidden SecretsI hide behind my smile,I keep my secrets covered.When you look at me, you'll see nothing wrong;that's what I want you to see.You think you know me,you tell you do.Lies.You don't know me at all;you don't know what I hide behind this smile,This is where I hide my broken heart:you broke it, broke it long ago.Now I hide from you and everyone elsethe fact that I'm still not okay.I miss you.I still need you, still love you.(I probably always will.)You never knew how I felt;I never showed you my heart.You never even looked for it.The scars have healed,but the pain has not.I watch you every day,walking by and smiling.You can't see my pain;you don't know.You can't see every day what I hidehere behind this smile.
Christian: Not a LabelYes, I am a Christian.That doesn't mean I'll be showing up on your front porchWaving a Bible in your face screaming "Have you heard?Heard the Good News?"Yes, I am a Christian.That doesn't mean I'll condemn you to hell for drinking that glass of wine,Telling you to treat your body like a temple and keep it pure.Jesus Christ drank wine, didn't he?Yes, I am a Christian.That doesn't mean I'll be picketing your home, your work, your friendsJust because your beliefs don't agree with mine.That's a little childish, right?Yes, I am a Christian.That doesn't mean that I devote my Sundays to God, turn off the phone,TV and light and read my Scriptures by daylight.I'm a college student. We call Sunday the "day of catching up."Yes, I am a Christian.That doesn't mean that I will spit on you because you deign to walk down the street arm-in-arm or hand-in-hand with a member of the same sex.God created us all equal, didn't He?Yes, I am a Christian.That doesn't mean that I can't accept

Epiphany...Maybe, instead of trying to make each other less irritating,We should try to make ourselves less irritable.

Right?So there's this boy. And, honestly, he's absolutely beautiful.He has this incredibly soft blonde hair and breathtaking blue eyes. And his smile, oh, his smile. Please, don't even get me started on that one. It's one of the greatest thing I've ever seen, and I swear to you I'm not exaggerating.He has this smile that he seems to save just for me (not that I was paying attention and hoping, just hoping, that he wouldn't share that smile with anyone else...). I wish I could say it wasn't the greatest feeling in the world when he graced me with that smile. But, if I'm honest with you (because I'm certainly not being honest with myself), I have to tell you that it really makes my day. I can't help but smile right back and turn away because I can just feel the heat rushing to my cheeks.But oh, don't let him fool you like that. He's so much more than just a pretty face. He is the best conversationalist I've ever met and I find myself losing track of time when lost in conversation wit

UntoldAs said in Shakespeare's "Hamlet", one bares two faces: The one that God gave you... And the one that you show to the world.Within each person is something hidden, locked away.How do we enter this place so skillfully guarded?Do we really know the ones we hold dear?Or do we all have something left untold?
