    Dalila the Dandelion

    Dalila the Dandelion

    Two matches when lit on fire then placed next to each other and if close enough, will burn eternally together. They were grown in a small town in the eastern part of the world. It is funny people named it a dandelion because when the sun kissed it the glow that it exuded resembles what can only be the reflection of a specific version of the sun. If you happen to come across one that hasn’t fully bloomed, you would be tempted to pluck one up, severing the corpse of such a gift into two and blowing away the connections it took a lifetime to grow. You do this in hopes of being granted a wish which we both know is pathetic. Such a gift should only be left to grow and to bloom into something that can stand in the suns’ way and reflect to the human eye the closest thing it would ever come to staring directly into the sun. Although most of the time people do this to dandelions, the only explanation I have is that from the premature death of what would become beautiful is the mere theft of the power that it takes to create something in life.

    Love Can Heal any Wound

    Love Can Heal any Wound

    Everybody says that Love can heal any wound. Love can make your dream of impossible. It can make you believe in yourself again and the people around you. It gives you hope for a better life and a life with a lot of hope. I have always said that I have a couple of relationships. Some of them become a marriage, I have kids, but to be honest. I have never fallen in Love, sadly. Every time I said that last part, people used to look at me like feeling sorry for me. And I never understood why, and I find it very annoying, why people would act like that? Like everything we do not know about, you do not miss it or do not care. But, to me, it was normal. I never have an example of what it is to be in a loving relationship. My parents were terrible with us and between them, so to me, that was a healthy marriage. Life showed me how wrong I was and how unhappy I was always. Two fail weddings and no love, and now I know why people felt sorry for me and why it was so difficult to understand me. I felt in Love with my kids but not with the father. It is sad. But life goes on, and not being able to fall in Love kept me from thinking about it unless somebody brought it up. And when they did, well, we know what I would answer, and we know what they will say and, of course, follow by the facial expression of confusion and pity. But I was used to that reaction. I had it all my life, nothing new. Well, nothing lasts forever; they say, we all get our turn to felt in Love. And God, what a wonderful feeling, and how painful it is, why do people like to fall in Love? So many ups and downs, so many tears of happiness and sadness at the same time. Now I understand how complicated Love can be, or it is us that complicate things? I do not know. It is so beautiful when you have all those butterflies in your stomach going around. You feel like singing, dancing, and being full of joy, feeling beautiful, strong like nothing can ruin your life. You feel like everything in this world is perfect; the past does not bother you anymore. God has sent you an angel, and you are blessed. Love, oh boy, I can get enough of this beautiful feeling. It is overwhelming!

    The Love Rock

    The Love Rock

    If I went to the stall with my rosary and contrition you’d be the sin I’d confess. If I were arrested and put in a cell you’d be the crime I’d write down on paper and give to the judge. If I were in Jr. High and I were whispering in my girlfriend’s ear, I’d tell her I put a note in your locker that said you had a secret admirer. It’s hard to admit you pine for someone who doesn’t want you. It’s also one of the most glorious aches I’ve ever had. It’s a vibrant polished stone worn down by all the things I miss and wish for. I carry it in an imaginary pocket and let it shine love on people who actively love me. I admit it helps me create a life worthy to carry such an undisclosed devotion. When love and sex and friendship and memories are suspended in time without conclusions or the day-to-day minutiae that can erode passion, it stays in that magical place where, for a brief moment, everything was perfect.

    Secret Love

    Secret Love

    Just like a dream, you never really know when it began, only that you're in it. Sometimes you're so far into the dream that it seems all too real. I would like to say that everything started with the first kiss. Was it the flirtations, the laughs or the constant nightly phone calls, always in hushed whispers? Whenever it started, I knew too late that I was in too deep. No one was supposed to know, but the more we kept the secret, the more I wanted to shout out my feelings, my eternal deep desire. Here was one small problem: She was living with her boyfriend.

    Why am I not enough?

    Why am I not enough?

    The rock music is blasting and pulsing through my veins. It’s the only way to shake the thoughts that you’ve transplanted inside my head. I’m replaying the conversation over and over again in my head. I’m asking myself is this partially my fault? You couldn’t even believe it was me saying these things. Was it so out of character for me? I think back to all our old conversations and how I used to view sex. Maybe before I knew I loved you I was ok with it. With you sleeping with other women. But now the thought of your lips touching somebody else’s and you being inside somebody else, makes me sick to my stomach.

    High School Sweethearts.

    High School Sweethearts.

    High school is the first step into our journey of adulthood . A young adolescent, full of hormones, and in search in finding the love of our lives. Maybe he will be the star of the football team? I wonder what he will look like? How he will be? Going to gatherings with his arm around your shoulders, memories that we hope to share with our children someday. We were young, we came from two different worlds, and we were absolutely terrible for eachother. When you look at a picture, you see the illusion what we try to make of our situation. Could you see The endless cycle that we were to selfish to break? The on’s and off’s? The late nights of tears? Betrayal and lies? We never saw eye to eye. You wanted control, you wanted a girl who stayed home and hid herself from the world. I wanted freedom, the time to find myself, and to just be myself. They say love makes you do crazy things, but was it really love? If you love someone, you would trust them? Right? Not believe everything that everyone else has to say, not everyone who speaks to you with concerns, always have the full story. People talk but to listen to their news is no different then playing an old childhood game known as broken telephone. To love someone is to respect them, right? not to bring their spirits down, and leave them looking like the fool at the party. It’s easy to just sleep on it, it’s easy to pretend, or try to run away from it, but love a two way street. Love is Communication, their will always be that tough conversation to converse about. Love is to want to understand, to listen, and love is suppose to be our freedom. Love is an open door, like that popular song that Anna sang in that Frozen movie. We welcome love with open arms, but don’t forget to leave the door unlock. You can’t force someone to stay, and if you do, it will only be a relationship out of obligation. There is a fine line between love and hate, but the only thing they both have in common is that, they are both fueled by little something that we like to call passion. No relationship is perfect, people disagree, argue, and so on. But if you have to constantly explain yourself, defend yourself, fight for what you need, or have to play the role of dectective. That’s the kind of situation that you have to weigh the pros and cons. Actions speaks louder the words, what we let silde is what we tell them is okay to do. Is their actions okay with you? That’s for you to decide. Is history enough? Could someone really change? A wolf will change it cost but not it’s habit. A person can break a habit for themselves but their character will remain, unless they choose to work on it, daily. What goes against our grain, is what we can’t sleep with at night. We know what’s right for us, but this expection of love we expect out of our partner, we should put that expectation on ourself. Like my nonna use to always say in her broken English, “if you no love you, then who will?” That love starts with you, what do you need? What do you want out of life? That’s for you to decide.

    Nerd Confession

    Nerd Confession

    The bad boy good looks was enough, until i grew up and wondered how it would feel to have a man treat me well and expand the horizons of my mind. Someone i viewed to be just a friend listened to my troubles for months about the bad boys in my life. Little did i know, he would be the one who showed me there was another kind of man out there that would open up my mind to things i never thought of before.

    To whoever is reading this, I hope you either somehow relate, it applies to you or you feel something. Read it aloud if you can. This may just be the proof you needed that it does get better.

    Lost In Love

    Lost In Love

    You ever been in love with someone and couldn’t really articulate to them why you were in love with them. Every thing you thought of on how to express your love to them and for them just didn’t quite do it for you. A love that’s so strong you couldn’t imagine life without them even if it wasn’t with you just their happiness alone pleases you. An unselfish love, an unconditional love, a love and bond that could never be broken. No matter how often you talk, how far away they are physically; when you connect it’s like time froze just for you two. The feelings is mutual and nothing has changed but the date. An everlasting love that will be here until the end of time. I’ve only experienced it once in my lifetime and it’s very breath taking. This person is so special to me and I don’t think he really knows how much he means to me. I read this quote before “ Trying to explain to you why I love you is like trying to tell you what water taste like” I don’t remember where it came from I saw it on IG but I totally agree with it. I’ve attempted to express myself through poems of the way I feel and it still doesn’t exactly capture my feelings 100%. I practically have a book of poems lol. Here’s one of my poems trying to express this love I have but I still don’t think it does my feelings any justice. Lost in Love: Its hard to forget a real good memory. Going down memory lane of time spent just you and me. Good times and bad times that we have shared together. No regrets at all I will cherish them forever. It is an up and down crazy roller coaster ride. But we keep it real with each other no secrets for us to hide. Why I'm so in love with you it's beyond my comprehension. The feelings I have for you has captured my heart's attention. I'm lost in love with you no real sense of direction. I accept all of you even all your imperfections. Is it the smell of you, your natural body fragrance. Maybe it's the taste of you that really drives me crazy. Could it be the sight of you which has taken over my vision. Am I crazy for letting my heart make all of my decisions. I follow with no hesitation to it's unknown destination. Showing my love for you in my affectionate demonstrations. Lost in your eyes staring into your soul. Looking into the future as things presently unfold. Our hearts on the same accord filled with the same passion. I want what we have together to be everlasting. I'm lost in love with you and I could be lost forever. No search party needed long as we are together. We have everything we need for our love to survive. It's not only the air I breath; it's your love that keeps me alive. By Niyah Bailey aka BG BaileyGirl. This person I speak of I’ve known for years and we’re super cool. We’ve both been in relationships but year after year no matter what or when we manage to reconnect like we never left. And the time we spend together is always amazing. I look forward to the next time even while enjoying the present time. Some may ask why we not together if the connection is so amazing. The fear of things changing once it’s made official is the stop sign. Been there done that and that’s even after conceiving kids in 3 different relationships. Some people are great at pretending and can do it for a long time until they feel they got you trapped and right where they want you. I refuse to go through that again. So I live by the motto “ if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. I’m happy with life currently so I’m not going to stress over something because of what others may think or trying to paint this image to appease others. I guess I’m a sucker for love.
