Welcome to a celebration of truth, beauty, freedom, and above all things, love.~Moulin Rouge!

Every person has a mask; you have to look beyond the mask to see the person~Unknown

Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't want to live there. ~Adam Young


You’ve never seen my face,
You’re too busy looking around,
At everything else but me,
The one who wants your gaze to land upon her

Months creep by,
The tick of the clock as my mind races,
My friends harsh in one ear,
You soft in the other

It seems to be a trick,
Can I figure it out in time?
Tick, tick, tick,
The final countdown

Finally free from your spell,
I’m still drawn to you,
An inexplicable, unexplainable pull,
To do what I shouldn’t

All you wanted was something I’d never give,
Exploitation, explanation, exploration,
My permission to do what you wanted,
Letting you inside

Tick, Tock, Tick,
Knowing what you want,
Trying not to give in, convincing myself,
It’s over

Recently, I was torn, and I still feel that hard to rsist pull tot he guy I had once called a best friend, a boyfriend. It inspired me to get it out there.
