b>THE PROPOSAL</b>


ok so I am asking gowan to marry me this weekend. he turns 35 on Sunday.i love him so much. i cant imagine my life without him and i dont want to. we are matched both with our similarites and also with differences that serve to compliment each other. i could go on here about this but i wont. trust me when i say that he will like this and totally go for it. i am not rushing anything. if it weren't for my schooling we would already be married if he had a say in it!his children have given me their blessing and so have our moms.

i have located the place where i want to get his ring. in fact, i have a good idea which one i want to buy.

here are some ideas that didnt work:
id love to make a scrap book of our courtship but my courseload and work haven't allowed me the time.

i thought about a dozen paper origami roses made by me with the ring in one of them but as i quickly learned its about oh a million step process. im still trying to get one right!

i thought of a midnight picnic saturday night with an old fashioned (yeah the girl doing it) plain proposal with candelight and maybe a poem but we are quite adventurous and i thought something else might be more exciting.

so here is the idea i think ill stick with:

i have decided to go with a treasure hunt theme. we had a great non-date once. we waited until brandon went to sleep and i called him. i played the Pirates of the Caribbean dvd as he listened. he had seen it twice recently so he laughed right along with me. it was so romantic to us and so much fun. he remarked recently to me that he thinks that was the night i truly fell in love with him. i do admit that something magical happened. i looked up treasure maps and confirmed that i know how to do them with the aging of the paper. what i found out is that lemon juice makes a great invisible ink. once heated it turns brown. i know this will play a part but i havent gotten the specifics down. i am thinking on whether to concentrate the hunt at the park we enjoy or to make it go to several places in town that we go often. barnes and noble was our first meeting and we also went to waffle house that night. we like ed mckays which is a used book store and the mall. the ring place is there and get this - its called silver stream. it would work on the map! i have many antigue coke bottles that i could roll the "maps or clues" up in. i could even end at the silver stream and let him pick his own ring. i plan to steal his ruffle pirate shirt on friday night when i head up to his house. saturday after brandon's practice i can get dressed up in it. so ill be all decked out when i meet him. i figured curling my hair so it stays springy coming out from a red bandana, i cant wear a patch because of my glasses but i could tuck one up on the bandana. i have large 80s gold hoops. i have bracelets and i want to pick ups a slave arm bracelet. oh i could tie the hankerchief around my neck over a collar. i have tight black slacks that i will bunch into my boots. i dont have a sword or a hook though. i could make one out of foil. i might just do that. hmmmm

any ideas would be greatly appreciated. i am excited. we met here on the journal. it is only fitting that you guys can play along. you have all seen me at my worst and my best. i barely know some of you and many of you i consider very good friends. i do care about you and this is so special to me.

what are your thoughts on all of this?

Something I wrote. It really sucks, but oh well

[Forlorn Fool]

I loved with my all
But you built a wall
I tried for you
But all you would do
Was shut me out

You would be hurt
Be down in the dirt
I offered a hand
But you would demand
That I leave you

You've forsaken me
But I will still be
Right there with you
Whatever you will do
I will still love you

It seems as if everytime I get into a relationship with someone, it seems to go wrong in some manner. When I meet someone and we're talking, I like to talk to them at least once a day... is that too much to ask? And when I get close to a relationship and they tells me they like me... I run away because I realize that it's not what I want.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??

I met this boy. I knew of him for about a year, but we've recently just really met and started dating for a month. We've decided to get married without the consent of our parents (elope), we're running away to practically the other side of the nation and going to live with one another without telling anyone any of this besides a few close friends that are bound to find out. We'll both live together, work and go to school there and I'm terribly, terribly excited.

Well... I find the whole thing romantic.

My mate, gesundyke, and I've been dating since 7/22 and it's a LDR. I know it's only been a bit over a week, but the connection we've had since the many months we've known each other, and the connection truly growing stronger since we began to date, is amazing.

My love rants – warning VERY longCollapse )

I’m sorry for the long entry, I tried to include everything at once and put cuts behind everything lengthy.

i wrote this while i was imprisoned in guatamala for stealing a beautiful beautiful wool poncho the color of a deep green rainbow:

silence fills these falls like a thick poncho.
i think to myself about the turboslut i once knew in america.
his name was terry. i long for to see him again!
if only to tell him what a massive turboslut he truly is!
dear jesus, please make my skin raw like a horse's ass in the desert.
so that it might take away my lonliness and my neediness.
for i can survive without water long enough to know
that terry is a turboslut and he must be told so.
forever.

I Need You

I wake from sleep
still feeling your touch.
My eyes shut tight
hoping to return to your love.

I hear a song
that renews my desire.
Your warm hand
leading me to love.

I see your face
unclear to my eyes.
I hear your voice
unknown to my ears.

Are you there?
I need you here with me.
I need you to hold me
to love me
to exist...

all i want is waiting for me there.

i'm so terribly afraid of wasting my life. in fact, i think it's my worst fear.
so when i feel like i'm wasting time i get amazingly sad. it might be selfishness to some degree, though.
because all i ever really want to do is spend time with a select few, and that's hard to pull off.
it's what i want to do, and it's hard to do it. and i get frustrated. and when i get frustrated, i get sad, etc.

so, in a sense, what i want is selfish. but that makes sense because it's what i want...it's the definition of selfishness.

is it wicked not to care?

Mood: complacent.
alright so i admit it, i'm not a hopeless romantic. but i obsess, praise, and consort with those who are, and though i'm not full-fledged or card-carryingly starry-eyed, i will admit that i have my grovelling, snivelling, wretched romantic moments too, and i'll lay 'em bare-assed on the confessional here anyway if you really, really would like.


i dig poetry and candlelight...

terry here, you're local Community maintanience man. i'd just like to point out a few things before everything really gets started.

first, since i've made this an open community, anyone can post here. my one rule is that you be as respectful and open to others as you would have them be unto you. it's not hard...but also not biblical in any fashion--i hope.
so, don't feel inhibited here, etc. this is a place to share whatever you feel like sharing, be it poetry, short stories, or just plain feelings.

so have at it.
