Once Mine, Now Yours

As generous as I am
I would have never
relinquished my heart
something so complex,
precious…forever mine.

And it happened
I don’t exactly remember when
the weather was warm
the leaves were still
I recall
the distinct smell of cinnamon
and a hint of lilac.

enigmatic eyes,
matched with
a luring anatomy
attracted me.
an eagerness to gratify
overwhelmed me.
devoid of atrocities
kept me.

my chest cavity
gingerly touching my heart
my heart:
plump vessels pump blood
mended wounds
eventually fade
full of life

Wasteful Thinking « Inspiration for your work & life

Avoid some of the most common "drag you down, get in the way of success" thoughts:
(taken from GiveMore)

1. Defeatist (accepting, expecting, or being resigned to defeat)

2. Cynical (contemptuously distrustful of human nature and motives)

3. Vindictive (seeking revenge)

4. Blame/ Fault (who cares? what are we going to do now?)

5. Wishful (do what you can to influence the deal/ project/ situation and keep moving)

6. Self-pity (get over yourself… complain less… especially to yourself)

7. Worrisome (it won’t help, costs time, and can drag you down)

8. Jealous (want it? earn it)

9. Pre-argumentative (the imaginary argument you have to prepare yourself for the argument that may never happen)

10. Post-argumentative (the imaginary argument you have where you’re quicker than you were in the actual argument)

11. Procrastinatory (if you’re going to procrastinate, you might as well do something fun instead of thinking about how bad it is that you’re procrastinating… dummy)

Since high school, I have been the master procrastinator. Continuing to work at that! I will conquer it, just you wait.
