And just for thought...
Another afternoon alone, a Saturday in July,
sitting in a coffee house with the sun baking the pavement around me.
Too much time to dissect my life, to see the flaws I so graciously accept
but I want more than this solitude.
Where are the friends I search for?
Yes, I know.
Shoo fly is what I did.
Shoo fly is what I got.
I attempt to rebuild my empire, stone by stone,
a circle of friends for the random afternoons.
I place a welcome mat at my front door,
waiting for the stomps that never seem to come but they will.
I open my life, my home to feel the warmth of others once again.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
