Life felt like winter
Till he showed me spring
Now I ache for the summer

Mothers on a Park Bench

Six mothers - old and young
Sitting on one park bench
Huddled close for love, for warmth
They twitter and chatter
Watching their two sons
Playing in the grass
"Noah don't push your baby brother!"
The child stops and stumbles back
"See? Now God is pushing you"
They twitter and chatter
Karma is balanced again


Rain in Los Angeles

I walk outside and today
The world is beautiful and harsh
A mother beating her children
And crying
Because she loves them
Because she has to

I took these pictures the last time I saw him.. we were having lunch with my family at Liberty Market where my sister works. The pictures themselves didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped.. but its the look in his eyes that I can't get enough of. I'm so surprised that I could capture those looks in some photos.

The Angel

She's with the Angel
Laying in his arms
Finding rapture in his scent
And praying for deliverance
Waiting on his words
She looks up to the heavens
And his eyes paralyze her
Her heart freezes
As his lips drip smoke
Swirling down to her ears
Clouding up her mind
She thinks, he thinks
"Heaven is not too far off now"

A Girl's Best Friend?

Just looking through Allure magazine and found some pictures of engagement rings.. so I decided to mess around and look some up myself.. just to see what i like. Personally i'm not a huge diamond person. I share the belief that diamonds look tacky on women under 40 (Breakfast at Tiffany's) but I understand and respect my culture's tradition for diamond engagement rings. So this is what I came up with. 
I love the simplicity of the solitaire ring on the bottom, but I also like the detail and sparkle of the one above. And the very top ring I like because the stones aren't too big, but there are a lot. I think the ring is a bit more antique looking and detailed. Diamonds are freaking expensive. I feel bad for guys. haha but it does give the woman a sense of worth and value I suppose.
