keep travelling

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

if people were elements,
then we are ice and fire.

your touch is frost upon my burning skin,
my breath melts your frozen heart.
your kiss is cool against my lips,
and my heat warms you all the way down
to the tips of your toes.

and although we could complement each other,
beckon the other away from the end of polarity
to come and meet in the middle,
too much of one

will eliminate the other.

—  and i’d never forgive myself if i caused your destruction, c.j.n.

Stoned love

Stop messing round with that fire,
Living like love is just a gun for hire,
Cos one moment its just messing round,
To your wiki saying she’s your spouse,
Oh but its not just girls,
Cos yeah one moment I was tearing off her blouse,
Now she says she’s living in my house,

Babe I know you said you’d never smoke pot,
Its just; that burned Like your first splif,
Now we just hanging around in the dark, you’re pale as a ghost.
Stop messing round now, cos am too stoned,
You’re know I can’t save you cos in this game am too gone,

She’s only seventeen, and thinks at sixteen am all there is,
But a degenerate kind, baby am definitely not what you need,
She wants to dance with devil, Mr brownstone is just grave,
Oh Y’know the drugs will drown her out, just too young,
Can’t believe this is my life, smoking and fucking in the back,

I have NO idea what fashion is but I wanted to join the wave of ripped-jeans model @danisnotonfire and then got wild with k-pop styled silver-haired @amazingphil :D Their looks in 2k17 are somehow crazier than ever! And I let myself out with making up outfits! It was fun, thanks to the twitter squad xD

Be fearless. Have the courage to take risks. Go where there are no guarantees. Get out of your comfort zone even if it means being uncomfortable. The road less traveled is sometimes fraught with barricades bumps and uncharted terrain. But it is on that road where your character is truly tested.  Have the courage to accept that you’re not perfect, nothing is and no one is — and that’s OK.

Off Map

Knowing where you are going is important. Having a life plan with a route to follow makes certain you will stay on the correct path. Because no one likes being lost with nothing familiar in sight. It leaves you confused and little scared. Glancing about for anyone who looks like they might know what they are doing can be frustrating. Especially if you are in a country where your native tongue isn’t theirs. But sometimes, a slight detour, or perhaps even a large one, can bring unexpected smiles and a little joy to the soul.

Upon arrival in Paris, I decided I would walk to wherever I wanted to go. I didn’t want to use the Metro because I felt I wouldn’t miss out on seeing the city since I am only here for a short time. This morning, armed with a map and directions to the Louvre, I set off. But as I was walking, I realized there was a slightly longer route, but it would take me along the Seine.

Detour number one was beautiful. The sky was full of threatening clouds, but as I had the foresight to be carrying my brolly, I wasn’t concerned. Didn’t matter anyway. It never rained. At least, not on me. I crossed a different bridge than my directions instructed for the sole reason that the one I came to was rather extravagant. Almost obnoxiously gilded and ornate. But this is Paris and it fit.

After crossing the bridge, I should have followed the river again in order to connect with the point on my directions that would lead me to the museum. I did for a little while, but then saw a large ferris wheel. No, I didn’t go for a ride. I just wanted to see it up close. Everyone was laughing and having a fabulous time at detour number two. Seeing stranger have fun made me smile.

At that point, I knew the general direction I needed to head, but wasn’t quite sure how to get there. So I followed a guy who looked like he knew what he was doing. Detour number three led me through a stunning garden, what Americans would call a park. The paths weren’t paved like they are in America, but that only added to the charm. To my delight there were several water fountains and multiple sculptures in the garden. Amazing. At the end of the garden, there was a gorgeous arch.

Beyond the arch, was the Louvre. If I had followed Google maps, I would have ended up on the other side of the Louvre and only seen the arch with no idea of the beauty that lay beyond it.

Following a map is a generally a good idea. But being unafraid to walk off the map might just take you where you wanted to be all along.
