Magic

I was once the kid who believed on magic and birthday wishes.
I had no inhibitions, no fear.
If I felt it, I did it;
I was once the kid who could draw, write, skip, run, act, sing.
I was going to be an astronaut, a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer, an actress, a princess, an architect.
I was once the kid who stuck two hands in the birthday cake and tried to stuff them both in my mouth at the same time.

But then I grew up and I think, maybe, I can’t do all that,
I grew up and and I think I “have to choose” a profession
I grew up and started to think
I grew up and perfected the ‘art of pretence’
I grew up and I “Act now”
“Act” like I have some sense
“Act” like a grown up

These days, I carefully cut a slice of cake and eat with a fork
I’m a grown up now.

For the days after Valentine’s

This is for those who showed the utmost love yesterday,
This is for those that bought/got chocolates and flowers and huge teddy bears,
This is for those that planned the most romantic dinners,
this is for those that treated their loved ones to massages, spa treatments, and breakfasts in bed,
This is for those that had an unforgettable day,
This is for those that felt absolutely special yesterday,
This is for those that are still in a “love coma”

But No.

Because this is really for those that don’t care about Valentine’s day,
Those people who cannot stand the pressure of the day,
Those people who are not able to live up to the perfection that they think Valentine’s is about,
Those people who would rather spend the day watching TV with a glass of wine.

And for those people who believe that Valentine’s day is really about ALL loved ones and sharing love with family and strangers,

But not really.

Because this is actually for all of us;
those who think feb 14th is a special day,
and those who think its just another day of the year,
those who love all year round
and those who love the hardest on this day.

But most importantly, this is for those who were disappointed yesterday,
Who did not spend the day the way they wanted,
Who could not spend the day with who they wanted.

Don’t you worry, tomorrow’s another day.
Love hard everyday in your own unique.

Perfect Match

I’m in Love…

Not that cliche’d can’t live without you, peanut butter and jelly kinda love,

Not that love-you-like-a-fat-kid-love-candy kinda love

It’s that kind of love that feels exactly like nothing you’ve ever felt before

It’s that reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kinda love

It’s that always have a smile on my face like I’ve got a beautiful secret kinda love

It’s that private kind of love

that only me and you are in on the secret kinda love

It’s that wanting to tell everyone I meet about you kinda love

It’s that real, never-ever dying kinda love

It’s that special special kinda love

It’s that true kinda love

from the fairy tales kinda love

It’s that freedom to be me kinda love,

It’s that able to say anything I want kinda love

You make me feel so beautiful; mind, body and soul

You take my words and turn them into perfect music

It’s that Perfect match! Me and My WordPress page!
