someplace dreams are made of
student, advocate to change the world
hopeless romantic*

remember that night
I told you i couldn't sleep?
I was thinking about you--
i was thinking about all of you--
i thought about your smile--
your laugh--
and that crooked little smirk you show--
when i say something saracstic--

i thought about the trivial things--
they all amount to you--
showing me that no detail is to be overlooked--

everytime i see your face--
i feel i owe you all the breath
my lungs could muster up and push out
upon the world--
i owe you all of me--

that night i couldn't sleep--

showed many things--
many many things--
it showed me--
that you on the brain--
makes sleep impossible--

i want to--
coexist within all that you know--
and have come to love--

then i just might get some rest.

What ever you've done, you can no longer post to the kitchen table
It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
