Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry





Sometimes I believe you Sometimes I don’t

Packing to leave but you know I won’t

Times you run ahead Times you fall behind

Today my friend – Tomorrow fucking with my mind


Hating your truth Loving your lies

Pulling my lows Pushing my highs


Sometimes this Sometimes that

Feeling like a lion purring like a cat

Staring into your eyes questioning what I see

Always and forever….just little ol’ me 


Carisa Adrienne

This song is on my daily playlist.

I believe I am my strongest rival at times.

I fight my inner self more than anything else.

I obsess about things I should never think twice about.

When I want something so much I tend to over think things and it hurts my strategy.

I realize the girl in the mirror and I want the same thing,

    We can look at this two ways. One- grateful you posted again. Two- angry you have deprived us of such beauty for so long! 😉

  7. This is absolutely true for most of us, I think. But, if you don’t trust yourself, who will? And, I haven’t heard that song in years! Thanks for the flashback!! 😃

  12. Love that Obsession tune!😊 On a deeper note, I think many of us struggle to get out of or to get into our inner self. I’m thinking about our struggle between being shadow or persona dominated and unifying both into Self. Fight on beautiful girl!😘

    • Michael, I missed about 7 comments from this post. I need to figure out a way to read my dashboard better. I think you’re right. I know we all have a little angel and devil in us. Lol. I know I certainly do. I think my biggest inner fight is self doubt.
      You always make feel so good when I read your words. Thank you for being such a great buddy! 😉❤️

  14. I’m not going to coax you. I’m not going to be like most and say to take it easy on yourself. I’d be a liar because that’s not what I do. If that is what you think will comfort you, you’re more than capable to indulging, but I get the strange sense you want just one more person to say to you, It’s ok…. It’s ok to live in the inner murky. No in fact, it’s the only true way. To feel the visceral reality of your you-ness. To know we suck but not to despair. To make a battle out of it, to paint and repaint and layer upon layer without care for the texture it makes. Paint on and don’t be afraid to use dark colours or dwell inside longer than needed. 🙏

    P.s. Your return poem inspired the next one for me…. There you go, some of us will see you as a muse in things you think nothing of

Thank you for always being such a great blogging buddy! I’m going to find the poem you wrote!! You’ve made my day. Next time you don’t hear from me let me know. I don’t get have my notifications.
