becomming an evacuee


Day 1-
“Oh my gosh, how awful!
The smoke is hurting my eyes,
did they really need to close the highway?
I’ll have to postpone my shopping time.”

Day 2-
“um, the fire is still burning,
& it’s billowing sheets of smoke our way…
Staying glued to the news, alarming,
but grateful it isn’t us at least today…”

Day 3-
Now we are on pre-evacuation,
but I doubt it will ever come this close,
I guess decide what you would pack,
but we probably won’t actually have to go…”

Day 4-
I guess we should make plans to go tomorrow
and all of a sudden that red line on the map
is within 1.5 miles of our home & my bed,
But now i am too much in shock to pack…

Day 5-
the sherrif rings our doorbell
informs us we have 1 hour to get out…
Groceries, towels, journals, heirlooms,
are all stuffed in as fireman’s voices shout…

I look over the hill as we drive…
I can see the flames just over the trees…
I’ve seen this before in movies…
but it wasn’t my home, my life on the brink of burning…

TODAY-
evacuated. scared.
helpless & afraid.
thankful for life, but, how do you live
when everything in your life is at stake?

My work is evacuated,
we have nothing to do but wait…
our house may be fine,
or my carload, may be all that’s saved…

God help all of us here,
all those in Colorado & the west today…
dear bloggers if you have a moment,
please send a prayer our way

My story… & how you bloggers changed it. =)


I have two best friends. One girl & one guy. The girl I”ve been best friends with going on 9 years… the guy for 4 years. Poor things, my girlfriend & i used to sit up in bed giggling over gossip & apple juice, then she’d be forced to hear some of my new poetry… her initials are MB.

The guy & I met in college. Freshman year. his initials are KF. it happened in that year, my family began to experience hard times. He was there for me on so many late nights. He did ask me out at the end of first semester. I turned him down on the basis that i didn’t want a relationship freshman year. He said he’d wait as long as it would take.
It was awkward for a time, but long story short, he got over it & dated two other girls over the next two years. But him & I became even better best friends. We skyped almost every night for hours. Even when he had a girlfriend, or I had a boyfriend. We would tell each other stories about our relationships.
(Btw, i transferred out after freshman year, then left college halfway through sophomore year due to finance issues. I started working my own way through life)
One month i had been sick for 3 weeks & couldn’t work, & thus, couldn’t pay all my rent, he sent me $180… just like that. didn’t even ask me to pay it back. When i was having problems with going out & drinking, he’d stay up with me on skype until i went to bed, so that i wouldn’t be lonely & tempted to go out… He was there for me even more than MB in many ways, as she was busy falling in love with this other guy herself.

WORDPRESS CREATED- KF encouraged me to start a blog site for my poetry. So that i could network & basically have something to do good with my time. So i did. I didn’t use it a lot at first… but over time, it’s come to mean so much to me

Years went by…

He & that girl broke up in 2010 December. He hasn’t had another gf since. I had a bf in the summer. when i broke up with that guy, it was still tough, just ego wise. Because he got a new gf like right away. I felt rather stupid. KF was there every week to build me up. Sending me texts, telling me any guy would love to have me.

More months went by, i began to finally admit to myself what i hadn’t even blogged about online before that. (i’m pretty honest on my site… much easier for me, as it is anonymous). I had fallen for him.

As I began to write poem after poem about faling in love with him. Many bloggers said was fitting or cute. but especially Gabby’s comment (http://autumnsunshineandgabrielleangel.wordpress.com/) , stuck with me… it was such a fitting ending.

Of course, now i was freaking out like crazy. How could i risk loosing my best friend? i mean, if he didn’t like me, how much would that suck & mess with our friendship? & wouldn’t i know if he liked me?

Suzanne Goretti & a few others encouraged me to tell him

So, i finally booked a flight to go up there about 2 weeks ago…

It was the love story of love stories, lol. So freaking perfect. He said he’s been in love with me all along. & i realized i will never love another guy like him.

I may sound totally too fast in saying i want to marry him someday, but i’ve never said that before. i mean it.

I almost gave up on him. I almost didn’t bother going out there. I almost just dated this guy here who likes me. But thanks to my fellow blogger’s encouragement (plus a nudge from my other best friend, MB & sister), i now have found & am with the love of my life. lol.

maybe i’m totally ahead of myself. But for once, i get it. i get what they say when they say ‘better to have loved & lost, then to have never loved at all.” every moment i have just knowing we both love each other, is worth the rest of my life without him.

Thank you all so much for the inspiration & encouragement. I guess God works in mysterious ways, as does love & fate…. I hope you all know i’m not being trite about this, or just trying to broadcast my site. I feel i am so indebted to every single comment that gave me the courage to go out & tell him how i felt. And i wanted to just let you all know i so appreciate everything. & i’ll try to be more involved in yalls sights & maybe, just maybe make even one little comment that may help someone else change their lives.

God Bless, unwritten truth.

Dear fellow bloggers… let’s shape our worlds together…


It’s funny how little & much this site can play a role in our lives. We can ignore it, & nothing bad happens. Or we can invest & become inspired. What’s really neat about wordpress, is how we are all active writers & readers. So, we have the opportunity to influence each other. Many of the future ‘best selling’ authors, editors, & even obsure writers are on here. we all have the chance to shape the future of literature on here. both with feedback & writing. . .

but there’s even more than that… we can change & inspire each other in ways that will change our lives, & thus the lives around us. Let’s try to build each other up. Even critiques can be helpful. We can bounce ideas & theories & encouragement. Look, everyone needs a little motivation & inspiration.

In the following blog, i will tell my story of how some other bloggers on here have changed my life with their feedback. And they don’t even know my real name. I’m an anonymous blogger. Amazing, the soul doesn’t need to be steriotyped or labelled. We can get right to the heart of matters on here.

I am so glad I took the step to set up my wordpress. I love reading every one of yours, & I sincerely hope that I can find time to continue to do so. It’s so powerful when you realize that people all over the world are reading YOUR poems, stories, and blogs.

In particular, i want to single out a few of the most amazing commenters i’ve had. who have inspired me:

1 Autumn & Gabby Angel: http://autumnsunshineandgabrielleangel.wordpress.com/
2 Jaded Heart- http://jadedstone11.wordpress.com/
3 Tale of my Heart- http://justsimplyinlove.wordpress.com/
4. Eric Alagan (so inspirational) http://ericalaganfanclub.wordpress.com/
5. http://daabsentee.wordpress.com/
6. http://maggiemaeijustsaythis.wordpress.com/
7. Michael- http://jamesdez.wordpress.com/
8. http://suzannagoretti.wordpress.com/

in the following blog, you will read how you literally have changed my life. PS. there have been many more inspirations, but these are the most prominent throughout time… i also had one called uncletree or something & anselmiking… both of them are awesome too. there were so many more. but the above have been above & beyond.

to the heartbroken I’ve read…


Hush breaking world,
actually, go ahead & cry…
I shall not silence
the healing tears from the sky…

A sweet voice of comfort,
I wish I could sing to you,
but instead I shall bow my head,
and pray for for whom i never knew…

I read your poems of heartbreak,
sensing the sting and burn you relate,
I don’t even know you, but,
my heart goes out to you, just the same…

And maybe a small comfort,
in knowing this, you shall find…
somewhere in the world a stranger,
is praying for your distant life…

—–

Dedicated to fellow wordpress poets/writers… I hope all turns out the best for you. always.

if all the snowflakes, were words of songs & poetry


They used to fall like raindrops from the sky
I used to collect them into old journals of mine
I used to run out of ink in the pen I was using,
after only a week or two of keeping it oozing…

I know it’s probably a little annoying & kinda cheesy
to keep reminiscing on how the words came easy…
I’m sure most of you on wordpress, have felt this same thing
so, I’m preaching to the choir about my words missing wings…

I just hope I get it back, I hope this is just a phase,
and all the good stuff will come back in just a few days…
Oh, if all the snowflakes, were words of songs & poetry,
oh, what a hay day! oh what a snowfall, THAT would be!

Kreativ Blogger Award


What a wonderful Christmas gift!

Michael, thank you so much for nominating me for the “Kreativ Blogger Award.”! Your site <http://jamesdez.wordpress.com/&gt; is truly inspirational, & i am so very honored that you deemed my poetry worthy. thank you!

First off, I feel a little silly getting this. I really don’t feel my stuff is of the caliber of so many sites I visit. I do love visiting all your amazing blogs. I gain so much inspiration from them. I know I’ve hit on this before, but this blog probably means too much to me, but because of this, all your comments are so appreciated & taken to heart. Thank you each for taking the time to visit my site. You truly do motivate me to continue writing in a way I have never been encouraged before. Knowing someone is there to read them… it changes everything. And thank you for all your creative posts as well. Without them, i don’t think I could write as much. So many of my poems are spawned off thoughts I took back from reading one of yours.

For this award, I am required to share 10 things you may not know. Then, I will have to pass this award on to at least 6 ( or more ) other bloggers.

1. I am solar-powerd. Sunshine is like oxygen for me..
2. I am a huge football fan. I know more most guys I run into about this.
3. I am from a big family, very sports centered. Making poetry… not something any of them wanted to hear…
4. I love playing soccer. I can even play soccer by myself if need be… something about me, the ball, & the goal, it’s just all there is at that moment, & the world is right again…
5. I’m afraid of commitment- to the extent of choosing a month-to-month phone plan so i didn’t have to sign a contract.
6. I’ve lived in multiple cities, states, countries… & more homes than i am years old.
7. Probably because of my lack of life, I have come to play the role of ‘therapist’ for many of my friends. Funny how they all call me up for love advice & such when i have failed so miserably at my own. But i love that they come to me, just the same.
8. Give me a bottled cream soda & a campfire, & you won’t see anything but smiles & contentment from me.
9. I honestly do not feel I’ve earned any poetic talent I possess. I consider myself lucky. The words just come & I type most of my poems without taking my pen off the paper/fingers off the keypad. I feel more like a conduit, from who? eh, idk… but I feel very blessed just the same to have something going for me.
10. I believe blood ties are stronger than any other. Family. Whether we like it or not, family holds a power on each other, from our roots to our future, I prioritize my family above all else in my life.

As for the bloggers I have to nominate for the “Kreativ Blogger Award,” this is going to be hard… I truly enjoy all the bloggers I read, & am constantly in awe of so many I haven’t even had the chance to finish going through. I will work on giving credit where it is due in time, & honoring all those blogs I feel worthy. However, for the sake of time, I’m only listing 10 that come to mind, & I really want to emphasize these are worth your time: …………………………..

1. http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/ *TRAVELERS HEAVEN!*
2. http://francoisbergh.com/
3. http://mandogtruck.wordpress.com/
4. http://thepoeticgoblin.wordpress.com/
5. http://nadiesbrain.wordpress.com/
6. http://morganjauncey.com/
7. http://gettingplayed.wordpress.com/
8. http://talinorfali.wordpress.com/
9. http://suzannagoretti.wordpress.com                                                                                                     10.http://warriorpoetwisdom.com/

Have a great day. !!! & congratulations to all

ps. Autumnsunshineandgabrielleangel & The Tale Of My Heart. were already nominated at the same time as me, or i would have nominated them as well. also, please look back to past nominations i’ve made & other sight recommendations. some people i feel are totally worth of this too, but since i’ve nominated them in the past, i’m trying to spread around that love to other folks who deserve it too!
