As the dust begins to form
Around this cardboard box
You remember our past.
We used to be friends
Best friends, actually
I caught your falling tears
And pillowed your head,
We would stay up late
And I never had a say
In the one I wanted
I never argued.
I just enjoyed your company
Then college came,
Followed by marriage
And you left me
You stuck me up in the attic
To fend for myself.
Enjoy the rest of your life
I’ll sit here and reflect on mine

I wanted add some excitement, make the internet buzz and throw in a random, fun blog. Now *drum roll… it’s time for another top 5 list… wait for it… wait for it! Still waiting? This time around (already spoiled by the title) is a top 5 list of ice cream flavors I want to see invented.
Let’s get started! (a lot of intense research was done, making sure these flavors don’t exist. If, after this blog, they do then I will be expecting a 75% return on all profits of these flavors.)
#5 Pancake Flavor
We all love pancakes and we all love ice cream so let’s combine the two. Heck, we can even throw some powdered sugar and syrup on top. Now that would be pretty cool. I’m going to pitch this idea to iHop right now (iHop is a breakfast restaurant idk if it is only on the East Coast in the United States lol) .
#4 Pepperoni Pizza Flavor
So pizza is obviously one of the greatest foods ever. But what if it was an ice cream flavor? I know right. It would be pretty weird, but totally awesome. Lets get a petition started and make it happen.
#3 Hi-C Flavor
This one was supposed to be Kool-Aid flavored but some wise guy stole the idea from me. Instead I came up with Hi-C so take that whoever stole the Kool-Aid flavored one!
#2 Gummy Bear Flavor
Gummy bears are a classic and so are gummy worms, but imagine if we had different flavors for different gummy bears. Like gummy bear cherry or gummy bear (whatever the clear one is) Just imagine it and then thank me later
#1 Rainbow Sprinkles Flavor
So it’s obvious rainbow sprinkles are the best topping. So imagine this… rain..bow…sprin…kle…ice cream yes it would be amazing. Sugary and colorful. I want it now.

Between my ears you speak
Sometimes in rhyme
But always coupled with rhythm and bass.
Your melodies loop in my head
Over and over
But instead of talking all of the time,
Why don’t you listen?
I’ve tried to thank you
When no friends were there to call,
No family to help me
Secluded alone in my silent thoughts
But there you were.
I’m grateful you know, truly I am
For now, I’ll play you until your baseline goes flat
Or I become deaf
Whichever comes first

Imagine a world with no color. Close your eyes and picture life as we know it in a black and white 50′s tube television. Minus the beauty of a sunset or the change of leaves in the fall, think about our new interpretation of the world.
No color. No divide. All Equals.
Etch out your idea with a stencil and
Begin with soft stroke of blue, just inside the lines.
Then maybe a metaphor and a simile,
Make it a satire only you could understand
Keep them guessing, wanting more.
Do it in first-person and write what you see
Make it abstract, but true to you
Blend, create and
Bring it to life.
Perhaps some personification,
Create fingers, hands, and a beating heart.
Add a coat on top, a semi-gloss finish
Dip back into water,
And do it again

Dangling legs off the side of her bed
Back and forth they swung.
Just like the first swing set her father pushed her on
Just like the time he “mistakenly” pushed her off
She twirled her hair between her fingers,
She’s never been so on edge,
The silent screams in her head,
A roadblock from it all.
Trying to escape, but locked in her mind
Only she had the key
Her brightly glossed-lips trembled with fear
He was right all along
But maybe, just maybe he was wrong

My peers are buried all around me.
Mother, Father mixed along the east coast
Waiting, for a pair of hands to give them pillars,
Make them stand again, a little closer to the sky.
One will tip me over soon.
Twice in one day perhaps even a third,
But best believe I’ll be back again
Pushing through the current; high or low it doesn’t matter.
I lay here by the ocean,
For the throne of my own castle

A mint-orange eclipse tucks in the sun and whispers goodnight in her ear
As she dips into the background, darkness rises.
Dark shadowy creatures stagger across a lonely highway,
Lurking, no direction
Glazed over eyes, cold, damp hands salivating for a human contact
The moon looks on licking its lips.
Blood-dripped fangs crave the need for an appetizer
Time drifts away, it’s prey tucked in, vulnerable to attack
Oh, don’t fear they’re here for a temporary stay
As the alarm rings, the sun wakes, stretches her arms and rises out of bed
It’s all over, no trace, no remain just a distant memory.
Did it ever happen? A mere mirage?
What do you believe?

Short story/Poem/Creative writing type/thing idk!
During the sun’s peak, I dare you, look to the sky.
Watch something majestic happen and it will leave you in awe. It’s like a change of a butterfly or how night turns back to-day.
We’re all capable of it just get out side your comfort zone because you too can flourish and shimmer. Spread out your branches and be free like the leaves of fall. Be grateful for your freedoms and never live as if your locked away without a key.
Don’t hibernate like winter make a change into fall.
What’s the worst that can happen?
A look of confusion, maybe a stare?
Strike a match and hold it up over your head. Watch as it dances swayed by the wind, inviting all to come and watch. Follow its movements, be spontaneous and bright.
Be like the bright fire above, the one in the sky, all you have to do is just open your eyes.

Give me your hand, empty your soul,
Pour it out in mine, tilt over and pour
Wash away like a wave on the shore
Then crash, retreat and do it again.
Please, no worries here, it’s so very safe
It’s the others I’d fear.
Their hunger to know and appetite for desire,
But believe it or not we’re all darkness inside
Not only sunrises, but sunsets as well like
A soft, ocean breezed spiraled out of control
Knocking over and consuming all in its way
So lend me your hand, promise, I’ll hold it tight
We’ll dance together and pirouette through twilight

A heart lays at rest
And a second to think
For your glimmer of gold.
As the world twirls,
Dancing for a moment
But when this life ends
What would you do?
Embrace the moment,
Maybe wish it away
Or take your one chance.
To make a difference
Take a stand
The world waits for no one
No matter the status
It’s one cruel life indeed
