HeartBreak Hotel & Not So Good(byes)...

Do.Not.Disturb swings from these doors like a pendulum


and i can't tell if you're coming or going



so whether you leave or stay



my heart remains vacant



because i have already shut you out




-Shandra e.


*i always struggle with goodbyes =/
Hence the reason why i keep people at bay...
it takes so much work to get people out of your system; especially when they vanish unexpectedly!
and it takes more work to distance people who are potentially good for you, all because you're afraid of "uncertainties".
*sigh....

You definitely are speaking to me with:

"and it takes more work to distance people who are potentially good for you, all because you're afraid of uncertainties"

Pride doesn't flow too well with potential or uncertainty, love does...

When I tell you this, I'm not puting up a front or just trying to leave a comment. I've been reading through your poems and they have been BOMB! I couldn't believe these were written by you, I thought they were taken from somewhere (no offense at all). It's just that it's not everyday you run into poets. Man oh man, I love this poem. Besides the fact that I work front desk at a hotel (where I currently am right now, as I write this) but because it's well thought out and well spoken. If you don't mind, I will be featuring you on my blog and linking you! Just let me know via a comment or twitter @KimberlyLuxe or something! =)

goodbyes are the hardest thing in the world. i'm terrible at them. there really should be more hellos in the world. goodbyes are so final, ahh i hate them. and i have felt this way so many times. i am here for you always never forget! p.s. i'm in love with your music!

wow! that was dope! "never can say goodbye" .... did you know clifton davis wrote that?? he seems so ................ (corny) to me... lol... those lyrics/ melody everything is so amazing to me! wow... but i hate goodbyes too!! its so easy to let someone into your life.. unexpectantly... unconsciously ... but actually letting them go is what takes the effort... and keeping them takes the effort... thats actually backwards to me!!

but yes!! i saw NEW MOON!! only thing.... i just wish they would have made me want her to fall in love with jacob..... so it could of been a harder decision... cause the hole time i was like .... jacob is cute and all but "wheres edward!!" .... edward did leave her... but i wasnt "mad" enuff at him, for me to want her to like jacob ..... (if that makes since) lol
