never will i forget this moment

Not everyone is like you, not everyone is prepared to pick up a book with a damaged spine and torn out pages and still try to make sense of it anyway. You are not one of those who don’t bother to get past the introduction. You’re not one of those who picks their favourite part and re-reads it again and again, you don’t ever skip to the ending in haste.

You feel the paper, no matter how tattered, beneath your fingertips and you hang on every word and for maybe just a moment, you’ll feel as though you’re a part of the story too.

But my love, people aren’t books and you can’t be the heroine of their story, you can’t rewrite their sadness or predict their endings. Do not open their covers if you know you’ll get cut on their sharp edges, stuck on their unfinished sentences and forever wishing for the words they’ll never write.

My father used to play this instrument here called the KORA which is the ancestor of the Harp as some of you may know… It’s been years since I’ve seen one played after he died and moments like this remind me the importance of my path and wherever it leads to NEVER forget our traditions and what we value as those who share for the joy of others. When you see these people on the street bless them please, with anything you have even a nod or a smile as you’d be surprised even to be acknowledged for some people in this world goes a long way… MLK day is a day of peace for me and I feel blessed to have received this peaceful music from a peaceful soul.. Thank you King. One Love, One Africa.🖤 (at Williamsburg, Brooklyn)

Niagra Pt.2

Just finished that episode. I will never forget the special moment shared between Pam and Jim. Also, Kevin’s shoes having to be burned by the hotel is pretty hilarious. Kleenex box shoes when in doubt. Thanks for submitting an episode request!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
