I hope you always have ice cream dreams

With kisses as sweet as caramel

And moments as delightful as marshmallows

May your worries be as light as whipped cream

.

Like a cherry on top, I hope your wishes come true

Like rainbow sprinkles, filled with joy and color

May you always have love like extra hot fudge

And an extra scoop of bliss in your favorite flavor.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

 

 

Lonely Suburbs

The suburbs are painstakingly lonely when you’re not in school anymore. There’s not much to do and finding a sense of community is nearly impossible. Most things you’d do to meet people aren’t very accessible, whether it’s trying to find a place a volunteer (that’s mostly been a dead end for me), going to events (there’s only so many you can go to), or the most laughable of all, trying to find a local job. It seems all I can really do is count down the days until I can afford to leave. I’m fine with the fact that building a career takes time. But if I’d known I would feel this stuck, I would have gotten more work experience when I was still in college. I’d certainly be further along by now. The only benefit to having alone time is that I can get plenty of writing done.

Tears and Mermaids

Life isn’t always sugarplums and rainbows

I wish I could always escape into winter

Wonderlands, ice castles and dragon kingdoms

Falling stars and oceans filled with mermaids

.

Even fantasy can’t always take away

The struggles and sadness that come day

To day. Sometimes tears are the closest you

Get to a magical, mermaid-filled sea.
