Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #26............

This challenge was MY pick. I thought long and hard about this one. One of the most significant parts in the books for me was the VOID. How you actually had to flip thru the pages with just the months written on them. I think everyone can probably relate to that part in the book really. That feeling of helplessness and loss. And I think everyone has gone thru that feeling of love and loss. So this week I wanted to touch on that a little bit.

Here is my project for this week....................

I used Club Scrap product for this one. Make sure you check out here what I am getting this month for the kit. WOW.....is all I can say. I had to share- cause it is so stinkin' pretty.

Speaking of sharing......here are two poems I wrote long long ago that I wanted to share. Be kind friends.......long long time ago - being the key here! I felt these related to Bella and Edward. I am sure Holli remembers these. Maybe this will prompt my childhood friend to share some of her wonderful poems on her blog! :)

Forgetting You

Sometimes I find myself thinking back to you
Remembering the times spent between the two of us
Recalling the summer days- the smoldering heat
The passion, the feeling of falling so helplessly in love
I also recall the winter nights- the snow falling down around us
And the warm tears streaming down my face
That you so generously evoked
I'm not sure how to forget you
I'm not positive where to begin
Perhaps you can help me- to get back to where we were
To the place where it all began
To maybe try it all over again
I still love you-
And I am afraid I always will
Even though you hurt me
You still live on in me-
Perhaps forever.......................

Hearts Intertwined

In the heart of every being
Lies a stillness anxiously awaiting to be stirred
Calmly enduring every day
Every heartache so carelessly administered
Deep in the woods stands a tree
A solemn oak
A promise of you and me
Two names in carved into the bark
Ever so subtle intertwined by a heart
Unlike the forgotten tree
You still live on in me
The rain keeps falling onto the tree
Just like the tears that cry out of me
How could I ever be so careless
As to allow someone like you to walk right out of my life?

Make sure you go and check out the other girls......

Make sure you go hang out here as well:

The poems are beautiful. Wow. I wrote a poem once in college and my wonderful husband horse laughed. What a butt. It wasn't supposed to be funny.

Totally loved the poems!!! Thanks for posting them!! The card is beautiful too. And I agree that the pages with just the months on them were painful to go through. Agony.

Holli said...

Oh maybe someday I will ;) I do so remember these poems and I so remember the teenage angst behind them too. You know every time I think about Mac2Nite I hear that Bug engine and remember that night of him circling and circling....LOL. Oh my god...too funny! Miss you much Eve-a-ling

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
