Bad Girl

It's no secret that Peggy is my favorite character on AMC's "Mad Men". She is a richly complicated woman - I identify with her seemingly meek demeanor and her relentless battle with her own strength. She is tragic and triumphant in nearly every scene and this last episode was no disappointment.

Conundrum

I love shitty people. They are usually quite attractive. And fun. And sexy. And exciting. And they trick me into believing I'm all those things. And more.

I love doing myself in. It usually makes me feel attractive. And fun. And sexy. And exciting. And it tricks me into believing I'm worth it all. And more

But guess what?

It doesn't. They don't. I'm not.

So Right

Drivin' home this evening
I coulda sworn we had it all worked out
You had this boy believin'
Way beyond the shadow of a doubt

Then I heard it on the street
I heard you mighta found somebody new
Well who is he baby - who is he
And tell me what he means to you

I took it all for granted
But how was I to know
That you'd be letting go

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
But it feels so right

There's times Ive bin mistaken
There's times I thought I'd been misunderstood
So wait a minute darlin'
Can't you see we did the best we could

This wouldn't be the first time
Things have gone astray
Now you've thrown it all away

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
But it feels so right.




Only one person in the entire world will understand this one. I love you, B.

Un

To love means loving the unlovable.
To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.
Faith means believing the unbelievable.
Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

~ G.K. Chesterton

(My eversolovely niece always inspires me. Thank you, J for this one.
It was very, very timely.)

From really far out in space,
do you know what you look like?


A star.


A super star.

Love you like crazy glue,

Remember

Today I will do my best to be the person that I need to be and not the person that it's easiest to be.

Today I will do my best to focus on the fun. The funny. The beautiful.

The brevity.

Today I will do my best.

Today.

I will.

Overfired

I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I'm all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth.

Still the Same

His heart had caught cold
It's colder than is assumed
I dared a few poses
The girl was me.



(did I mention I adore Martha Wainwright? I do. I really, really do. And Martha singing Edith is just too much for me. Almost.)

Cage

There are days when the cage
Doesn't seem to open very wide at all
There are others that would shock
The most indiscriminate lovers of all
My heart was made for bleeding all over you

You've got a girlfriend and I can only
Talk about her for so very long
Then my mind turns into my heart
And whispers into that dark cave that I've been wronged

My heart was made for bleeding all over you
And I know you're married but I've got feelings too
But I still love you

You moved up North and got a farm house
There's cow shit in your brain and love in your heart
I'm in the city and I'm trapped between
Two buildings then having to start at the start

You've got a daughter, now you're a father
You have your pack and they are wild

My heart was made for bleeding all over you
And I know you're married but I've got feelings too
And I still love you
I still love you

I've got feelings too
And I still love you
Yes, I still love you.
