Needs and Wants.

In the world today,
people have needs,
and people have wants.
I think the two get confused.
I think people think they want what they need,
and need what they want.
I need you.
I want you.
I need to want you.
I want to need you.
I try so hard to keep things clear,
when it comes to you.
That is easier said that done at times.
Most times.
Nearly all the time.
Things get confusing when it comes to you.
My thoughts get jumbled.
My feelings get scrambled.
It's hard to keep control of my thoughts.
Hard to keep my desires in check.
I know that I need you.
Certain parts of you seem very vital to my existence.
I know that I want you.
Certain parts of you seem important to my happiness.
I know that I will be okay without you.
Why be okay?
When I could be fabulous with you?
I wish your needs mirrored my needs.
I wish your wants mirrored my wants.
I wish we weren't in such a place of limbo.
I wish our eyes met on a much higher level.
I wish I could be enough.
I wish I could be the one.
I wish I could be good enough.
I wish I could properly express my need to you.
I wish I could properly show my want to you.
I wish many things, but at the end of the day, they are simply wishes.
If wishes were of value, we'd all be rich.
I am a woman of needs.
I am a woman of wants.
They all seem to focus on you.
I need you.
I want you.
I need to want you.
I want to need you.

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.


My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

Mother Earth #UseYourWords

Welcome to July's Use Your Words post! This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words.

My words are: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.


My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy ofhttp://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
