The summer days are becoming cooler
I think about winter and the lack of sun
I remember a year ago at this time...
My boyfriend had health issues he was recovering from
"Lets go to my condo for the winter in St. Pete"
St Petersburgh?? Are you serious!!
I love it there!
With the bitter winds
Are you preparing? He said
Man, I got this children's book coming out.
I got the exclusive article.
and all these little assignments to do.
Let me think on this
If you were blowing a piece of glass would you stop in the middle Shawn?
Nope. He said
It would collapse.
Cindy, I am an artist and understand what you are going through
When I blow glass I don't like interuptions
but you have to understand,
I'm in remission and there's so much I want to see and do
I understand, I said
So time went on,
The Spring rain came
It was a rough winter I thought to myself
Success, what does it really mean?
I called him and he said these words that burned some nights
" I've got a normal woman in my life now"
So I moved to three major cities in six monthes.
Looking for success
and the roads were paved witha bit of regrets
And does it all really matter
(it's the unknown)
(and if we did know)
IS a very small word that means so very much!
just is.. I thought
As I write my depth goes upon the page
as if my heart bleeds with each stroke,
and I find sentimental emotion in the simplicities
Normal women..... HA!
That's ridiculous I thought,
savoring my lollipop
