Welcome to my new blog world!

Maybe I should explain what I'm doing with this blog. This isn't about funny stories, and there will be no cartoons. This is more...real me. If you're looking for the funny, that's what Dehydration and Procrastination is ALL about, so please feel free to check that one out as well. I love that blog, and I would love to get back to it soon, I just haven't found the time. And for that I am sorry.

I just like writing. I like it a lot, and I haven't had much chance to do it lately, so I thought..."Why the heck not?" So this blog will be random musings, some poems I've written, pining about a trip I wish I could take...Things like that. If it's not your cup of tea, I understand, but I'm writing this blog for me. Because I need it. Nothing more, nothing less. I just need a way to express myself regularly. I go.

Some Nights of Insomnia

Some nights I have insomnia.
I toss and turn,
willing sleep to come to me.
Some nights I don't want to be awake.

But there are other nights,
lonely nights,
when I want to be awake.
Not because I want to be lonely,
but because I want to be tired.

The longer I stay awake,
the more tired I'll grow.
The more tired I grow,
the faster I'll fall asleep.

The faster I fall asleep,
the less time I'll lie awake in bed,
wishing you were here beside me.

Welcome back

Tonight I picked up one of the
pretty notebooks I've made a habit of
collecting over the years.

A pretty notebook void of any writings.
So tonight I picked up my pretty notebook,
and I put a pen to the paper,
and I allowed the words to come.

It was almost like greeting an old friend
the way it felt familiar,
but then again so very strange.

It was a heartfelt but cautious,
"I've missed you."
With  a wistful,
"where have you been for so long?"
as the reply.
