No Regrets

Heartstring Eulogies

“You see, I knew it the moment
our eyes met that I loved you.”

I remember that night like it was yesterday. The night you mustered up the courage to hold my hand. And then when I walked you to your car, I didn’t hesitate to kiss you. One of the few times I was ever brazen enough to act upon my feelings. You see, I knew it the moment our eyes met that first time. The time you really looked into my eyes and wasn’t horrified at what you saw looking back at you. I knew in that moment that I loved you. And you never left me regretting it.

So please,
don’t ever change.

promises and gin ~


another dawn
no different
than every day before –
a drink too much
whiskey chased by rain
a letter penned
and folded –
deeper than my fears
a lonely side
of pride
I’ll not complain

and I’ve forgotten
what I cared for
near enough
to lock him up
with promises and gin
negligence by proxy
I can hardly rest
I dare not sleep –
I will not dream

by noon
my heart will wonder
what made me feel this way
these hands
will have no memory of us
no warmth where you might linger
a favorite perfume –
pressed into the places
that I love

heart to home ~


I remember well
the girl you loved –
a whisper barely spoke
walked a wooded path
from heart to home
waiting for an echo
the name
you gave to breath –
was all the same
all I’ve come
to know

that girl
she carried heaven
pretending she was wise –
known for trapping wishes
in a jar
looping letters
one on top –
a name converged with yours
how many times
we married
one night
beneath the stars

Tips to Reuse Twist Ties

Be Inspired..!!

A twist tie is a metal wire that is encased in a thin strip of paper or plastic and is used to tie the openings of bags, such as garbage bags or bread bags. It is also called garden twist wire. A twist tie is used by wrapping it around the item to be fastened, then twisting the ends together (thus the name). They are often included with boxes of plastic food bags or trash bags, and are commonly available individually in pre-cut lengths, on large spools, or in perforated sheets called gangs.

Here are a few ways to reuse twist ties :

  • Temporary screw for eyeglasses – If you list the tiny screw on your earpiece, replace the screw with the metal wire found in the middle of the twist tie and snip off the extra length with scissors.
  • Organise your electrical cords.
  • In the garden, make a trellis by adjoining 6-pack rings together and tying the rings to two stakes. If you have droppy…

I am strange
different from what is expected

In science
I am like an atom
that possess an odd number of electrons

In Mathematics I am a number
not even divisible by two
I always have one leftover as a remainder
when divided by two

They call me weird because I am different





I smile
I laugh
I even smirk at times
I don’t care how they call me

For as long as you love the weirdness in me.
