Send Me Away

With a saddened heart I look upon your silhouette, distant and cold in demeanor as I step away.

Your eyes are empty and your hands are rough- oh, whatever happened to the gentle, caressing feel of your compassionate hand on mine? Where has the shine of your eye gone?

To whom have you given the last of your will? Did I not give you my all; love, kindness, and attention is what I showered upon you incessantly as you so pleased.

Now, the bed is more spacious, the quilts maintain less warmth. A broken promise, a shattered dream- our solemn vow has been so blatantly disregarded.

So, now as you see fit, send me away to where your heart desires, that you may not be concerned with my petty emotions. Send me away to mourn the loss of the you, the one I loved.

On Authors

  I often wonder about authors and their seemingly unbreakable spirit of creativity and pure determination.
 
  What is it that spurs the mind of a gifted intellectual on and brings out the best and worst of their personal traits and gained skills?
 
  It’s as if without fail or error in the slightest form, each master of language– both published and unknown to the world– has taken at least one twinkling star from the sky as a means of encouragement, and indulged in bedizen actions for his work.
 
  If this is indeed the case, then from where does one gather information for a worthy piece of literature?
 
  Libraries and museums are within the confines of a tangible realm– the author must reach beyond such boundaries and seek nothing but the utmost sources of knowledge, which is more than often located quite directly in the cerebellum and is awaiting one’s need for it.

Local Inspiration

  Hopefully, I’ll soon be heading to downtown McAllen to gather some inspiration. I’ll be taking my notebook along to jot down some quick ideas.

  My goal is to make a compilation of the things that I’m generally interested in so that I can create my own unique style within that of Japanese street fashion.

  Does anyone have any suggestions such as stores, accessories, or things for which I should keep my eye out? I would also love to hear in what fashion genre you’re interested and what you do when searching for an outfit to expand your wardrobe.
