She remembers the times
he rubbed it all in her face.
Car payment, shopping sprees,
fancy meals, his fancy place.
Every argument led to one direction,
“I’ve done so much for you;
I’m the answer to your equation.”
he said so often times,
made her question decisions
she made in her prime times.
Guilt, insecurity, loneliness, and misery,
She raced against life,
trying to change destiny.
Maybe he was right;
maybe she owed him a hundred.
He picked her up, after all,
when her days were thundered.
Pounding her head
with the hammer’s claws
until the impact
cut loose the gauze.
Countless years with no elation
were indeed grounds for cancellation.
Pretty even, she thought,
it had been paid off.
Hopefully not too late to say that, your day is every day, but today I hope you remember your unconditional love and hard work is very much appreciated. As a society, we all benefit from well-raised, kind-hearted kids. 🙂
Happy day to you, moms!
First comes the problems,
then it's the fights,
then the denial,
then, boom – goodbye.
One remote day, though,
healed over time,
you become friends again,
hang out 'til sunrise.
You'll be alright.
No diggity! Actually, inspired by a different song that I hadn’t heard in forever and I’m addicted again. It’s called Me Haces Tanto Bien by Amistades Peligrosas (in Spanish, obviously). Here’s a bit of it:
Enséñame a bajar tu cremallera
ya sabes donde voy,
ya sabes que he pasado la frontera
arrancando algún botón,
que tú ya sabes que te pido más madera
y tú pides más nivel,
ya sabes como mantener la hoguera
ya sabes como sabe ya mi piel.
Tú me quemas con la punta de tus dedos
tus manos hacen llagas en mi piel
me abraso con tu lengua que es de fuego
la sangre hierve, o no lo ves?
que tú ya sabes que me tienes cuando quieras
ya sabes como soy
ya sabes que me entra la primera
ahora me sale algo mejor
me haces tanto bien…
Look it up if you like — it’s pretty freaking sexy!
Sometimes, it all comes down to this between a man and a woman. The roles can always be reversed, as well. Who gets life…
Love — it knows no boundaries.
No matter what you think of the date, an excuse to celebrate LOVE can’t be a bad one.
Happy Love day!
But in case you’d rather have Cupid stopped, here’s this. Enjoy. 😉
I like my songs deep and passionate. If not, I can’t feel it. That explains my love for soulful music and artists.
Don’t make me be, take it back baby
I don’t wanna be, I don’t need to be in love
Hear me baby, I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna, I can’t, I don’t need to be
I don’t wanna be in love baby
Take it back, take it away from me
Take it away baby, I can’t handle it, I don’t wanna be
I can’t believe that I am the last one
The last one to know what the hell is going on
I can’t believe that I’m the last one to know
Say it ain’t so, please, please.
