Favorite Quote:
People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But they will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou

I’ve been many places
From an island to a cape
But for two destinations
I’ve never seem to escape.

Keep going back and forth
One full of flame, fire,
Irresistible desire.
The other made of chocolate, sadness,
Strung out on a wire.

One I will wear a smile,
And long to stay a while.
The other I’m dressed in brokenness
With no future of reconcile.

But I will finally settle down,
Be happy not confound.
And find that place,
The place I could never erase,
From the map in my mind
And be sure to leave behind,
But not to forget,
The one’s I have met,
And the time I spent
On that bridge,
Between Loveland and Heartbreak Ridge.

The author's comments:
This poem came about when I saw a sign of a school called Loveland, and a friend jokingly said, "Hmm, Loveland. I'm more familiar with Heartbreak Ridge." This was my inspiration to write about someone who finds themselves always falling in and out of love.
