“I Don’t Remember How We First Met”

Fun fact: April is National Poetry Month!  Last year, one of my favorite blog posts was this little piece on the 10 Things that Make Me Blush, which also happened to be a poem!  So, I figured why not take another stab at it this year?!  Holla.

I don’t remember how
we first met, or when I felt
the first brush of
your fingertips on
my skin
 
I remember the past 
though
so cold, and full
of bitter air
Our words coughed 
together
in gasps of
dying breath.
 
I think the first time
I felt you there
was when your beams 
of light
graced my face
So full of  grace,
forgiveness, 
and happiness
 
I struggle when you leave
me so alone
sweating in your dirty sheets
thirsting for another sip
of your relief
 
 
I want you
to come visit me
every day, every moment
awake to your sweet
tones and melodies
Fall asleep
as you chirp our memories
 
I know you by
no other name
than Spring.

Pinterest Update!

So, confession time.  My friend recently shared with me an email from her ex-boyfriend, in which he simultaneously tries to get her back and asks her several times if he is coming across as insane… Really, I can’t make this stuff up.

First of all, if you are a man with an ex-girlfriend and you find yourself compiling an email to her with the usage of the word ‘insane,’ please do not select the Send button.  Secondly, I kind of feel like him right now.

What??!! <– you, the reader.

Bear with me.  I’m not asking you if I’m insane.  I’m just associating myself with the feeling.  *Totes* different.  Right?!!  Anyways, the reason that I am feeling this way oddly has to do with Pinterest.  A number of months ago, after I wrote this post, my mom texted me and asked “Do you seriously limit each of your Pinterest boards to only 100 pins you little weirdo?!,” but in slightly nicer language, of course.

And, the answer is: Yes, I do!   It is no secret that I absolutely adore Pinterest.  I could spend hours upon hours on the site, and never get bored.  But, there is one little aspect that drives me a little nuts-o’s.  And, that is when people post thousands of pins to one board.  I find it really frustrating to scroll through pages of images (pausing for the browser to refresh) to find one little, mildly associated picture/article/fun fact that I might want to pin.

So, this is why I have no friends and am absolutely insane per my reference above meticulously create pinterest boards associated with specific topics, and analyze where each of my pins should go.  Yes, I really do this and I am totally weird, but I also find the end product quite fascinating.  My boards are quirky in the way that they can be really specific and absolute direct contrasts to each other.  Want to see?

Ps. Am I insane – or do I make, at least, a little bit of sense?  How do you organize your Pinterest boards?
