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.

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.



1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

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. 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: 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…

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…
