You can really feel her footsteps as she races for the door It feels as though an earthquake hit, much harder than before The monstrosity that she is, came from always being bullied She'd go home with scrapes and bruises, & all her clothes were sullied All she needed was one friend, just to not feel so alone Her pain was so intense, she would cry so hard and moan She used to be so sweet and kind, & now she is so mean She went from one extreme to another, before settling in between
When you wrap your arms around me You make everything alright I can shake off all the days dilemmas Anticipating a stress free night You painted stars up in the sky, and introduced me to the moon Your arms wrapped tight around me safe and sound like a cocoon You hung the sun, to light my way, a not so simple task You know my needs by memory, I don't even need to ask It's rapture in the best of kinds, it fills you to content We know each others pleasure points, Your kisses have me spent Let's brush away the days events, and focus on romance I know we're meant to be right here, This is our second chance

Tj quickly corrected Murphy, by telling her that Kinsey was not his wife, but his sister! Murphy just shrugged her shoulders, pretending to not care, when in fact, it thrilled her that he was not Kinsey's husband! Kinsey had now noticed the family resemblance, and decided right away, that she didn't care for the female version of Keegan, anymore than the original. She could tell there were sparks shooting everywhere between Tj and horse lady! This thought caused her to chuckle out loud which went completely unnoticed by these two that had just met, but were talking like they had known each other forever! Dusty wasn't sure why that bothered her so much! She wanted Tj to be happy, just maybe not so soppy looking over this particular female! After all, she was partners in the vet hospital with that infuriating jackass, hhmm, "what was his name again", this made Dusty giggle again, but also snort, which got the attention of both Tj and Murphy! Neither one skipped a beat in their harrowing conversation, just paused long enough to convey their annoyance at her rude interruption! Dusty gestured to Tj, to hurry it up, but he was oblivious to her presence! She decided to get dressed and go out to check on the horses! Maybe they would appreciate her humor! She giggled!! As she got closer to the barn, she had a wisp of nostalgia hit her like a ton of bricks! The smell of hay and horses, and even cow poop, brought a feeling of happiness, but also, regret, and betrayal! She had a semi-normal childhood! Her mom and dad were so busy chasing the next get rich quick scheme, they barely noticed she was around, so she spent a lot of time at the neighbors, who happened to have horses! They were always so kind to her, and she got really close to them! She spent more time with them, it seemed, than her own parents! One particular day, she brought home a poster, announcing a talent search, that was taking place in her town, with a grand prize of $500.00! While her parents didn't seem to care one way or the other, her hometown of Valentine, Nebraska, was all abuzz with the excitement of all the revenue and publicity this talent search was sure to bring their way! They were pulling out all the stops and were decorating, and cleaning up Main street! They wanted to show the world that Valentine, was a perfect place to raise a family! They had three huge businesses that had been moved there by a German company that built busses and air conditioners, and then a huge screen printing business that made all of the graphics for the busses instrument panel! Their little town doubled in population, seemingly overnight! These busses were shipped all over the country! They even on accident, were in a few films, where footage had been shot, and one of the busses was parked or being driven while cameras were rolling! This was a huge bump in Valentines economy! People came from all over to audition! Dusty was 12, and her girlfriends from school were pressuring her to audition! She played guitar, self taught, after her parents were unable to pay for lessons, due to their recent foray into a pyramid scheme where they used all their savings, and then cashed out a savings account that had been set up for Dusty, by her paternal grandparents! While they were still alive, they were on the account, and it was drawing interest, but never touched! They had been putting money in it since Dusty had been born, so that she could go to college or support herself while discovering what she wanted to do in life! They were free spirits, and believed that we all needed to follow our bliss, to cherish every moment, and find something that makes you excited to wake up everyday! Dusty loved them so much! Her dad never really spoke of them, except to say they were a couple of old hippies! After they had been killed by a drunk driver, her father, an only child, was executer of the estate, which gave him access to Dusty's money! It was around this same time, that a strange woman and her son showed up at the door and announced that her dad was the father of the boy! After DNA tests were performed, it was 99.99999 that he was in fact, Tjs father! She had a big brother overnight, and he had been looking out for her ever since. They were so close and she loved him so much! The night of the actual show was upon them after she had been selected unanimously by the panel of judges, along with nineteen other acts! She was nervous but Tj assured her she would be great, and that she could find him in the audience, and sing just to him! She had been prepared to strum her guitar and read her poetry, but Tj had helped her put her poetry to music, and so now she was playing guitar and singing! She had her original song, and "Wind beneath my wings", as her choice off the list of acceptable songs! She walked on stage, and her life was never the same! Apparently there had been a few different people that were there scouting talent, and after Dusty was announced the overall winner, these people had gone into a bidding war on who would represent her, with her parents making her their next get rich quick scheme, all unbeknownst to her! They didn't even ask if this was something she wanted to do, but what 12 year old kid, would turn down a chance to be famous and not go to school! Her first year was exhausting, but fun, and then the next five were pure hell! She couldn't believe how just smelling something had triggered all of those memories, and different emotions! She took a deep breath and continued on to the barn! When she went inside, she immediately knew something was wrong! She found her horse, Cochese, laying on her side, with a colt half in and half out of her! She reached for her phone, but realized in her hurry to extract herself from the love scene in her kitchen, she had forgotten to grab it, so she ran as fast as she could to the house, where she found Tj and Murphy had moved into the living room and was talking in front of the fire with hot coffee in hand, all cozy like! They both turned to look at her, being startled! Tj jumped up on his feet, and ran to Dusty, asking if she was alright! When she caught her breath, she told them what was going on and Murphy beat them all to the barn! She started barking orders, and one was for Tj to call Keegan, because she needed specific tools and he would need to do this! Tj looked at Dusty, and Dusty quickly nodded her approval! She would have let the devil himself come over if he could save her horse and foal! It seemed like hours before Keegan an Murphy emerged from the stall where Dusty had found Cochese! She knew immediately that it was not good news by the look on both their faces! Murphy started to talk and Keegan stopped her and proceeded to explain what had happened. They weren't able to save Cochese, but her foal was healthy, although hungry and wore out from the traumatic entry into the world! He had put him to nurse while Cochese was still breathing, so he had gotten his mothers milk for now, but they would need to find a nanny goat or a neighbor that had new stock, that could supply a couple feedings! Dusty stepped forward slowly and entered the stall where Cochese lay lifeless, and her baby nuzzled next to her sleeping! Her eyes filled with tears and she felt hands on her shoulders, Tj embraced his sister and she sobbed her heart out! Cochese had been given to her as a young pony, by the couple that lived next door, and whom she had grown so close to. She wiped her tears and looked up to see Keegan looking so distraught! Could she have judged him too harshly? She simply told him, "thank you", and proceeded to the house where she did not leave her room for a week! Tj had been checking on her and feeding her, when she'd eat. He was really starting to worry about her! Keegan and Murphy had gotten milk and a nanny goat, so little man was doing fine! They blew up a bullet shaped raft and wrapped a electric blanket around it for the foal to snuggle with! They had taken Cochese for cremation and had yet to pick up the ashes! They were all kind of in limbo, waiting for Dusty(miss Kinsey), to emerge from her room and tell them what she needed to feel better! Dusty didn't know herself, what she needed, but she knew it had been a week, and she definitely needed a shower! Good, she made that decision, so just one thing at a time, she could do this!
Can you hear that, yeah, me too Its calling to me, a big YooHoo! The snowflakes are falling in harmonious glee Singing in unison, what fun that can be The wind begins howling, the bass is real deep, While the tenors and sopranos lull you into sleep This beautiful white powder, plays all of the classics, With a variety of winterludes, that are truly fantastic Wrap warmly your loved ones, & hum along if you know it Like harmonious snowflakes, you're unique, why not show it Let the music take you on a winters sleigh ride, feel the passion of each note, & let the melody be your guide
When the music teacher, sang a song The words, they always sounded wrong
So I tuned him out, I plugged my ears with cotton, tp, and pickle spears Bubble gum, gummi bears,skittles, almond M&M's, real old peanut brittles
The music teacher sings off key, but I'll tolerate him, c`est la vie
#2 ☔ I love walking in the rain, some people don't, and they always complain
I love rain boots, and slickers, and rainy day stickers, board games, dogs names, and grampa who bickers, pb & jelly, chips & dips too, I even like boxing with my kangaroo. Puddles and potholes make pitiful pig pens, pond scum & mud pies, I always track in!
If the rain tends to stop after an hour, I go into the house and sing in the shower!
I read each word, Yet I don't understand, It's as if my brain has been crouching so long, Hovering over the collage of letters, That when I stand up suddenly, All I see is darkness While my eyes are still open
The essence of the letter eludes me, As each silent whisper Of my thoughts tracing the cursive, Seem to drift off the pages like a ghost, Haunting what I could have known but never learned
And as I get to the end, I know I'll have to read it all over again So that maybe I'll comprehend After reading a second time
But no matter how I skim through, How fast, How slow, How long, I stare at the ink, Convincing myself to believe I don't understand the writing, Though I've actually known all along What it's conveying, But I don't want your message to hurt me
Thus, my eyes, which have glided Over these unchanged words a million times In a few short hours In hopes they would suddenly gain a new meaning, Feign blindness to deny The pure harshness of reality
