Happy BirthdayHappy Birthday Lizzie woke up at dawn. She was too excited to sleep. Normally Saturdays were her sleep in day, but today was special. Today was her mommy’s birthday. Her daddy was going to be so proud of her as he didn’t have to tell her to wake up, to not sleep the day away. Today she was a big girl, able to do for herself. She was now 8 years old, no longer a baby, daddy told her so. With that in mind, she was going to dress herself and do her own hair. Even though Lizzie had not seen her mommy in a long time, she could still remember how beautiful she was. She remembered how her mommy smelled, always of vanilla. Mommy used to tell her it was because she was in the kitchen all day baking. Lizzie did not really understand this, but she didn’t want her mommy to think of her like a baby anymore, so Lizzie would just nod and tell mommy how much she loved the smell. It reminded he

Her dress, dark like her mood, bellowed around her as the wind started to pick up. She was dressed as if she came from a funeral. Perhaps she did, her own, or at least that is what it felt like to her, as if she was already dead. When you die you stop feeling right? Is that why she couldn’t feel anymore? Is that why instead of emotion, she just felt nothing? As the wind swirled around her and the sky above seemed to grumble and roar, she did not feel her red hair as it was slapped haphazardly against her back, nor did she feel the searing pain of her tiny split ends hit across her face like sharp razors. She tried once again to remember how she had gotten here. She barely remembered the crushing pain in her heart as her weak
Two hearts beating the sameYour eyes stare into mine like the depths of the seawaves of emotion lapping at my consciousnessWhispers of tomorrow and yesterdayblend into the presentwith jarring accuracyHope and fear waft through the airin jumbled sensibilitieswhile trust builds and fadeswith the passing dayEach heartbeat an eternityof the here and nowfighting the might have beenworried for the soon to comeAs the day turns to nightwe dream and dare to hopebut with each dawning raywe also fear the separationof all that was and isI will stand here at the crossroadsand wait for fates handI will let the wild dream of hope fill meand fight the fear within...Two hearts that beat such a strong rhythmcan never be torn apartunless they so chooseit is this belief thatmust sustain meabove all else..We will never be separated again

ParadiseParadiseAs sunset slowly approached, she sat, reflecting on the beautiful paradise she had called her life. She lifted her pale face to bask in the final rays of light that bore down upon her. The slight breeze in the air swayed her wispy hair around her hollow face. She gently cradled the neck of her companion, affectionately stroking it’s smooth curvature. She lay down in the cushioned grass that blanketed her and allowed herself the luxury to feel.Her life was a marvel, full of rainbows and butterflies, carefree and alive with color. Her paradise was peaceful, majestic and comforting, providing a safe refuge from her chaotic life. As the last pinks and purples of light embraced her, she could rest her weary head on the pillow of the soft bank of grass. So serene the tranquility of her sanctuary was, that it provided her a moment of clarity and an enhanced sense of hearing. The delicate hum of the crickets nearby sounded like
