Music is Oxygen, Poetry

Ladies, love your guy.

Ladies, if the guy in your life does
things no one else does,
or at least tries,
be sure to let him know
how much you appreciate his efforts.
Don’t nitpick, it’s a turn off!

Even if his efforts
are not to your standards,
show appreciation anyways.
Remember,
everyone wants to feel rewarded
for their efforts, even you.
Be fair, treat him as you
would want to be treated.

Ladies,  please communicate!
Tell your guy what’s on your mind.
Do not expect him
to read your thoughts,
men just think differently,
they don’t need a hint,
they need you to be clear
about what you want.
Life would be ten times easier
if you just speak up.

If he no longer treats you
like the star of his universe,
then maybe he feels his efforts
aren’t being appreciated.
And if you still choose
to take him for granted,
soon enough he will just stop trying.
Then don’t be surprised
if he gives his love and time
to someone else
who truly appreciates him.

Be his cheerleader,
be his support,
cherish his secrets,
comfort his soul,
nurture his creativity,
love him like no other
and hopefully,
he will love you just the same.

Crystal Clear

If you tell me I’m special
Then place me in a box
With all your ordinary things,
It means I’m not special at all.
When actions and words are not in sync,
The truth becomes crystal clear.

Made-up words and phrases

‘Bubble-water’ is a ‘home-grown’ or made-up phrase I use to describe seltzer or sparkling water.

I started using this term when munchkin was around 2 or 3 yrs old as I needed a way to differentiate between that and regular water. Surprisingly, the term has now become normal in our house because, well, we all know what it means!

Recently, however, I caught myself using our ‘homegrown’ phrase in the real world and was quite amazed the recipient of my ‘word spill’  understood what I meant and didn’t need me to clarify. Seems we weren’t that odd after all!

So, in light of my recent mishap, what ‘homegrown’ or made-up word did you use in conversation outside your home that made things awkward or amusing? Excited to hear all about it!

Thanks as always for stopping by.

Hugs,
A🌷

The Taker

I’ve been around longer
than you’ve been alive.
I suck the life
from those around me
and you are no exception —
It’s what I do.

I despise you, 
yet I pretend to love you
more than life itself.
For the most part
you have no clue
of my true intentions.

I don’t care
about your daily life.
Why should I?
My life is more important,
your world is insignificant
compared to mine.

All your attention
needs to be focused on me –
ME ME ME ME ME!!!
Go to work
and bring me all your money,
perhaps I’ll let you have some, 
but only if you use it on me.

I don’t want to hear
what you had for lunch
or who you talked to today, 
or anything for that matter,
but I’ll tell you all about my day
and you better be interested
and remember all the details!

I will diligently condition you
to think about my needs
above your own.
Before long
I will have you believe
your needs don’t matter —
your purpose is to service me,  remember?

I’m getting bored with you now,
I’ve used up all your usefulness.
If there is nothing else you can give
then why are you here?
Perhaps you should go get a second job
to satisfy my every want and need.
Your need for rest is irrelevant!

I am in your life
for one reason only,
to take what I can from you.
You are just a means to an end — a tool!
I’m hoping you’re too dumb
to realize my hidden agenda
so we can continue to live happily ever after.
