How Can I Love When I’m Afraid to Fall?

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything, take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath, every hour has come to this…

Monster… How Should I feel?

That night he caged her,
Bruised and broke her.
He struggled closer,
Then he stole her…

To Try and Touch the Sun…

I’m standing out in the street
The earth is moving
I feel it under my feet
And I’m still proving
That I can stand my ground
And my feet are there
Having washed my hair
To be lost before you are found
Don’t mean you’re losing…

I Remember a Time My Balance Was Fine…

I try so many times
But it’s not taking me
And it seems so long ago
That I used to believe
And I’m so lost inside of my head
And crazy
But I cant get out of it
I’m just stumbling

Songs I Can’t Listen To…

Do you still sing alone
When you’re all by yourself?
Or do you switch to the next one
Sing for somebody else?
When you’re cold don’t forget
How this song kept us warm
You would dance on my bed
I would lay in your arms…

 

He left everything behind when he left her. It wasn’t that he was gone, perhaps because he wasn’t gone at all. It was everything. She could see him and feel him everywhere. The coat he left in the closet that still smelled of him, especially on cold days… His pillow, still laying untouched beside her own. Every nook and cranny, every shadow, every song that played on the radio was a reminder to her that he had been there once.

He had been there, with a smile brighter than the sun and arms so strong that she always felt safe, warm, and protected. He had been there to celebrate her victories and wipe away her tears.

She’d stopped listening long ago, afraid that one of those songs would play, and her resolve would crack, and the rest off the world would be able to see that she wasn’t as together as she liked to pretend that she was.

She’d never missed anything so much.

Sometimes, if she listened hard enough, she could still hear his voice, softer than a whisper, but as clear as though he was standing right behind her with his lips pressed to her ear.

“Don’t worry,” he’d always say, “I’ll see you again soon.”

Where There’s a Man Who has No Voice, There Ours Shall Go Singing

nova ryr slipper endless pain retro rewind.png

 

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all ok
And not to worry because worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I will not be made useless
I won’t be idled with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

 

I’ll go back to my regular format soon, because I looove telling you guys stories, but this post contains my first Rock Your Rack preview for the 2016 Rock Your Rack event hosted by Models Giving Back, so here’s the deal:

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I am participating in Rock Your Rack this year on just about every level one can participate, these posts are going to be special. With each Rock Your Rack post, I’m going to include some facts about breast cancer that not only every woman should know, but every man (because: Did you know that breast cancer does not explicitly affect women? While breast cancer in men is rare, it can happen.)

Breasts should not be so taboo. Know your body. Check yourself regularly. Don’t be afraid to speak up and speak out. We’ve all seen the shirts that say ‘Save the Tatas.’ Hell, I think I have one. Some people laugh (because hey, the word ‘tatas’ is funny, right?) but breast cancer is a serious issue. Here’s some of the reasons why:

  • One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.

If you’re looking for another way to get involved in the fight, please stop by and check out the Rock Your Rack event, which opens on October 1st and runs until October 16th. Sales generated from purchases of items at Rock Your Rack 2016 will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation. For more information about Rock Your Rack, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and the event hosts, Models Giving Back, please see this post.

In the Mood for a Melody

 

In the Mood for a Melody.png

 

And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doin’ here?”

She approached the piano, her heels clicking lightly against the worn wooden floor beneath her feet, and hid a sad smile as she reached out to move her fingers over the old ivory keys, pulling a layer of dust away with her fingertips.

Somewhere behind her, she heard a man’s voice.

“Do you play?” He asked.

She froze there a second, her hand poised in mid-air. Sometimes, she could still hear the music, still remember the way it felt to bring the old instrument to life. It called to her, much like a siren’s song, but she had denied it for so long.

“It still works,” the man added, sounding almost hopeful. “Might need a bit of tuning, though.”

She turned and tilted her head ever-so-slightly in his direction. “I don’t play anymore,” she said.

“But you used to?”

“Yeah,” she said with a soft nod of her head. “Used to. Don’t anymore.”

The silence hung between them a moment, and then she heard him again, posing the one question she’d never been able to answer for herself, much less to anyone else:

“Why?”
