  • She was a mermaid
    At the top of an ocean
    Mystical with hope
    Watercolored emotion

    She held out hope
    She’d float again
    With the sea urchins
    Together their fin

    She was destined
    Just for her past
    Mermaids are fairytales
    Present and vast

    • No Lessons Learned?

      25 years together
      All the lies you told me
      They were countless
      Yet,
      Not as many
      As the ones I told myself
      You’d make fun of me
      And I’d discount it
      You’d criticize me
      And, I’d look the other way
      I had always said
      “If you can’t be honest
      With other people
      At least be honest
      with yourself”
      Sage advice I’d give to
      other people
      I did not heed my own words
      I didn’t even know
      I was in denial
      Not a clue
      I feel so foolish
      I am filled with shame
      What was I doing?
      You did nothing for me
      But I wouldn’t give you up
      Couldn’t
      It literally cost me everything
      Now, I wonder
      What lies do I tell myself today?
      If I didn’t know before
      Maybe I don’t know now
      I should’ve learned so much
      But have I?
      A soft, forgiving heart
      Is only a blessing
      To others
      To the one who possesses it
      I can’t think of anything worse
      “Toughen up”
      I tell myself
      But in my soul,
      I know I will always be
      What I am
      I can’t even
      Hate myself
      Enough
      To be any different

    • Limitations
      Can be simplifications
      Taking what you cannot do
      And making into something you CAN do
      Turning power into power
      Smashing peoples expectations
      Turning fear into powder
      Limits?!
      I say bullsh*t!
      Just put your mind to it 100%
      You will be surprised by
      What you can represent
      When you overcome

  • Lovely Castle
    Blended into the scenery
    Abundance of guests
    Including me

    This castle was haunted
    I stay anyhow
    A ghost as a roommate
    I even allowed

    There was no other place
    In town for me to stay
    I now live there with others
    Some real or ghosts in child’s play

    • You’re such a light, a love
      for brilliant cloudless days
      when hope would find you
      laughing with all of us.
      I wonder as the sunlight
      now falling on your eyes
      lights upon a smile that
      remembers yesterday’s?
      Tomorrow’s rain may
      cloud such memories
      yet hope will find
      another someday.

    • I am at a point in my life that I remember reality, dreams, and wishes. Sometimes I cannot distinguish the difference – I’ll ask myself if something really happened, or if it was a dream, or thought I had. I can’t remember. It all seems so real. I cannot remember anything pre-birth. I have few memories from age 1-5. The more my brain formed the more memories I have. But the memories from 30 years ago are so strong, they have lasted this long.

  • Samantha Leboeuf commented on the post, Faith

    Neel,
    I really enjoyed your post on faith. You opened my eyes to see it in another perspective. I attended AA for about two years, and not all of the members believed in God. In order to start the program, you have to do the first step: I am powerless over alcohol and my life has become unmanageable. Step 2: Came to believe that a power…Read More
    • What an amazing story, Samantha! Thank you for sharing. I agree, the interpretation of faith can even change or evolve within ourselves due to various circumstances.

    • A broken angel found me
      lost in words I could not make
      days between who I once was
      and who I am.
      She’d teach me things
      when I wasn’t looking
      knowing that someday
      I’d remember her happy.
      A broken angel left me
      drowning in words
      I cannot stop as my days
      and nights still find her.

    • You don’t know me as
      I shy in my shadows
      alone with patterns
      my introverted intuition.
      I study your feelings, looks
      I cannot read your mind
      just language, body, eyes
      they tell me everything.
      I like my alone, music, books,
      what you write,
      my words to you,
      Will you still keep me?

    • Perfectionism isn’t something I have had to deal with in my lifetime. I tend to hurry too much and because of this, make mistakes sometimes where I least expect. How do you change your habits? Samantha

    • My older sister always seems to be “perfect”. Marathon runner, good job, motorcycles, lives in Thousand Oaks, etc. Yet I cannot let myself compare my life to hers – we are two completely different people. Yet when I think of perfection, I think of a higher standard without judgement. Changes in habit come slowly – 1 pushup a day. Then 2, then 3, then 4. Before you know you are doing 30 a day. Learn one sign language word a day. Learn one word in Spanish, or French, or German, or Farsi, or Gaelic, or Chinese – just whatever! I have changed my old habits through language. Find something that works for you. And make it one thing.
