Be The Better Person

When people act shady, allow them. When people betray your trust, allow them. But never, ever sink to their level. Their choices are a direct reflection of who they are, not who you are. No matter how angry, hurt, or disappointed you may be – do not allow them to make you bitter. Be better. React with love. Sometimes that means retaliating with understanding and compassion; other times it means retaliating with acceptance and sheer silence. Whatever it is, make sure it benefits you as a human being instead of lowering you into a position which you would rather not be in. Normal people don’t go around destroying other human beings. Only those who are hurt, lost, and confused cause pain. Don’t be one of them. Just take the lessons and move on gracefully.

My Mistake

You tried to tell me the truth

But I didn’t know what to do

So I kept doing what I’ve always done

And I lost you in the process.


How do I get you back?

How can I fix what’s been broken?

Can we start over again,

Or is it to late for your heart to love again?


Is there anyway I can mend the broken trust?

Will my love for you be enough?

If only you’d hear my words,

Then you’d understand I’ll never let you go.


I won’t ever hurt you again.

I’ll keep your sacred heart in the palm of my hand.

Your love and trust is safe with me.

Just please give me another chance.

What You Are To Me

With you my dreams have no bound

In truth there is no lies

In you I have found

A love that never dies


You soothe my weary soul

You calm all my fears

In your gentle reassurance

I find strength to perservere


You chase away my demons

As if they never were

Your love shines through me

My own special cure


You’re my anchor when the seas are rough

You’re the breeze that lifts me up

Your arms I will always crave

Holding me tight until my last day


Your voice I cannot, will not live without

Washing over me turning me inside out

Sending shivers over my skin

Resonating to sink deep within


I never knew how empty

How incomplete I was

Until the day I let myself

Be completely open to your love


You are my future

My wish upon a star

The other half of me

My pure white light in the deepest dark


Mistress of the Vampire: A Review

Mistress Of The Vampire by Elena Darkmoon

Title: Mistress of the Vampire

Author: Elena Darkmoon

Published: December 21, 2017

Genre: New Adult Romance

Pages: 259

Rating: 5 Stars

He had a hungry look in his eyes. He had been searching, seeking, until he found me. I was burning under his gaze, I wanted to rip my clothes off, I wanted to run away. Who was this beautiful man and what did he want from me?

Magnus Redman became my boss and my lover. I was young, innocent and inexperienced, the opposite of him, and he knew just how to penetrate the soft core of my mind until all I could think about was him. Our passion was intense, crazy, sexy, white hot and dangerous, just like him. I craved him like a drug, his hands, his body, his teeth……

But then hidden secrets and painful revelations from the past threatened to tear us apart. And we found ourselves battling a powerful force hell-bent on revenge and destruction. How much would we be willing to sacrifice to save the ones that we love?

My Thoughts

When I first started reading Mistress of the Vampire, I thought to myself, “Why is it moving so fast?”. The beginning was so good, but at the same time, so fast paced. I thought I was going to read something that was going to go by quickly, but as I kept reading, I changed my mind. There was a reason why it moved like that and it completely blew my mind.

The very first paragraph drew me in. While reading it, I felt like I was there in the moment. (I absolutely love when an author does this!) The words were so vivid that if I closed my eyes, I could see, taste, touch, hear, and smell everything. I believe there’s a fine line between too much imagery and not enough imagery. Elena walked that line masterfully.

Mistress of the Vampire is written from the viewpoint of two different people. At first I was very confused about the role of the second person, especially since I had no idea why this person was so important. Despite my confusion, I continued reading, and I’m so glad I did. Everything came together and blew my mind away! I was completely taken by surprise and could not put the book down. Now, I sit here anxiously waiting for the second book. With the way this one ended, there has to be a second one.

Elena Darkmoon has completely exceeded all my expectations. I will gladly reread this book many times. It was full of mystery and surprises and kept me all the way on my toes. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a vampire tale with a strong female lead. I honestly feel as if I made the right decision to start my year off reading Mistress of the Vampire!!

You Are Not Everyone’s Cup Of Tea

The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you: they are Your People.

Don’t waste your finite time and heart trying to convince the people who aren’t your people that you have value. They will miss it completely. They won’t buy what you are selling. Don’t try to convince them to walk your path with you because you will only waste your time and your emotional good health. You are not for them and they are not for you. You are not their cup of tea and they are not yours.

Politely wave them along and you move away as well. Seek to share your path with those who recognize and appreciate your gifts, who you are.

Be who you are.

You are not everyone’s cup of tea and that is OK.

Like A Girl

I play like a girl, I hit like a girl
You say I throw like a girl,
And, when I run — I run like a girl!
All that plus more, enjoy this one size fits all

Who and what I want comes from being strong
Classy and fabulous,
THIS is my song!

I’ve been told, cut to size
The world dark and gray, when life becomes an insult
Take heed when I speak my mind,
I am tough, outstanding and beautiful!

Move ahead — say it twice, I smell nice
A taste of Cool Water and Justice Perfume
I have a non-stop multitask fixation
Like a woman, everything about me is hidden
Magic and alluring the only joy in sexuality you’ll need

I’m empowering this moment!
Endorsing Myself, with a certain sorta mystique
I deliver an independent will,
don’t ever underestimate my physique

I am a caregiver, a female who won’t give up the fight
I remain firm and believe all women have equal rights
I walk and talk Like A girl
wearing heels Breaking the sound of Annabel

Like, Mona’s unforgettable smile,
I stand tall Like Miss Liberty
I am, Betsy Ross, America’s #1 designer
Harriet, who escaped slaver-y
Like Theresa and Mary, I’m here to give change
I am, Hilary overwhelmed with determination
A leader — A Goddess, I burn like Joan
—Cleopatra in the room
—Calamity Jane’s wild side
Emelia’s, won’t give up heart
I am Anne, with a secret hidden spot
Susan B, with the right to vote
Emily who writes deep and pretty

The sound In your eyes aren’t listening!
You imagine I am weak — not strong enough — brave enough,
You call me different and difficult!
Still, you want my warmth — my love — my attention

I am not less, I am more
I am a woman — I frown — I cry — I hurt and yell at the universe
Nevertheless, I make a difference
Like a girl, I smile
A smile never seen or felt before, both defined and undefined
Your heart will ask and implore for more

Like a girl, I’ll drive you wild, looking pretty “You’re In Love!”
My Self confidence comes from who I am deep inside
Everything I’ve become follows the makeup on my face
Bare and nude, I am the Madonna flowering the mood

At the end of every day, I have one other thing to say
The Next Time You ask me to cook and clean
Because you think, I belong in the kitchen
You better believe I’m doing it my way

Invitation to Love by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Come when the nights are bright with stars
Or come when the moon is mellow;
Come when the sun his golden bars
Drops on the hay-field yellow.
Come in the twilight soft and gray,
Come in the night or come in the day,
Come, O love, whene’er you may,
And you are welcome, welcome.

You are sweet, O Love, dear Love,
You are soft as the nesting dove.
Come to my heart and bring it to rest
As the bird flies home to its welcome nest.

Come when my heart is full of grief
Or when my heart is merry;
Come with the falling of the leaf
Or with the redd’ning cherry.
Come when the year’s first blossom blows,
Come when the summer gleams and glows,
Come with the winter’s drifting snows,
And you are welcome, welcome.

Woman of Your Dreams



Woman of Your Dreams

Can I be the woman you

conjured up in your head

can I be the woman in your

heart I thread.

I may not be the greatest thing

since sliced bread but I can

be the star in your movie,

your book that was so well


I promise to make your toes

curl and your body scream

I might not say all the right

words or do all the right things

but can I be the woman of

your dreams.

I may not fit most peoples

hyped up standards but if

you could possibly fathom

I was God sent then you would

see we were really meant.

Don’t you want a woman who will

love you completely, be faithful

and sacrifice her all for you?

Stand by you?

Rise and shine with you?

I may not be the cutest woman around

but I know…
