Just For a Moment

There he was

Outside, chatting

Hearty laughter

Captured my attention.

Crooked smile

Lips part

Cigarette in the corner

Sudden spark.

Looking my way

Smiles exchanged

Quickly approaching

Frozen, I’m speechless.

Sudden breeze

He’s gone

Shocked, I turned

His eyes, shifted.

Standing with beauty

“He” is now “they”

Hearty laughter

Infectious giggle.

For a moment

I felt admired

Highly desired

Just for a moment.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.

  1. It always was so disappointing when the girlfriend came sauntering out of the bathroom to hold onto the arm of that hot guy you were just oogling over, wondering how to strike up a conversation.
