Don't Tell Me


Please don't tell me I should hug,
Don't tell me I should care.
Don't tell me just how grand I'd feel,
If I just learned to share.
Don't say, 'It's all right to cry.'
'Be kind,' 'Be fair,' Be true.'
Just let me see you do it,
Then I just might do it too.

--Shel Silverstein (( Love his poems )); Where The Sidewalk Ends

Tea--Iced Peppermint =)
Reading--The Luxe; Anna Godbersen (( Again! ))

Moonless Night


Before you, my life was a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars--points of light and reason...And you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.

--Stephenie Meyer; 'New Moon'

This is probably my favorite from the series, if I had to choose.

Time Passes


Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does.

Muffins


Let's take a quick break from the 'Twilight' quotes. My favorite and the best and most funny joke ever =)

There were these two muffins sitting in the oven.
One muffin turned to the other and said, 'Man, it's hot in here.'
The other muffin said 'Ahh!! A talking muffin!!'

Just typing it makes me smile =)

Complete In Myself


All the time I was thinking I was complete in myself, not realizing what I was seeking.

--Stephenie Meyer; 'Twilight'

This applies to part of my love belief, that there's not someone out there for everyone. Because some people don't need a significant other. And you can't tell them that they don't know what they're missing with love because they don't need it. You don't know what it is until you have it.

Currently Reading--'The Soldiers Of Halla'; D.J. MacHale
Song--Here; Hellogoodbye (( Love this song ))
