“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
We loved with a love that was more than love.” – Edgar Allan Poe
“Oh, my God,
I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee
And I detest all my sins
Because I dread the loss of heaven,
and the pain of hell
But most of all because I love Thee,
And I want so badly to be good” – Madonna
“I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.” – Maurice Sendak, author of Where The Wild Things Are
It’s been over a year now since your previous owner gave you to me. I love you so so much! My life has been very tough, to say the least, up until now, and I know things will never be 100% better. However, since I adopted you as my own, I realized there’s this nurturing and loving side to me I never thought I had. People have screwed me over so many times. (I know I tend to generalize a lot…) I have a soft spot for animals. You are a vibrant creature, and I feel so grateful that you are in my life. Silly, baby, my little mama kitty, you are so loved, so very, very loved. You put a smile on my face every morning simply because you’re always there for me. I enjoy taking care of you, feeding you, petting you, playing with you…. Heck, I love you so much that I even enjoy changing your litter box. It’s good to know that the place that you do your business in is always nice and clean for you. And at night, I always look forward to you crawling on my tummy and laying there as I pet you slowly and tenderly. You are the light in the day’s beginning that revives me. You are the moon that reminds me that I am not alone even in my most darkest hour. Silly, you are a trustworthy roommate, a compassionate friend, and most of all, you are my little birthday girl! Happy 4th birthday! And may God bless you with many more! I love you!
Hello to my exquisite fallen angels! I’m sorry I haven’t pleasured you with my literary bounty as of late. I currently have Pharyngitis. On top of that, I had an allergic reaction to two bee stings a week ago. That all affected my job and college performances. Fortunately, the bee stings are history and the sore throat is gone. (Yet my voice is still recovering, and I really miss singing…) I must admit, for the first time in my life, I finally feel content and important. Full time student, stable job, paying my bills, strengthening friendships, getting closer to family members, and finally not stressing over a guy. Thank God! I love my life! I have writer’s block now though. My writing abilities tend to stem from the horrors of my past but things have been going well recently. I guess that’s one drawback from my happiness. I love you all! The One-Eyed Angel is nothing without my fallen angels! Have a wonderful day! Over and out.
