Pretend For One Day


I still think of you.

Even if you never cared.

Pretend for one day.

I Feel You In It


This stone protects me.

A lucky stone you told me.

I feel you in it.

You Dance In My Dreams


It has been some time.

I protect you from afar.

You dance in my dreams.

I am not a dream


If you are dreaming,

Lie to me, tell me you’re dead.

I am not a dream.

Wrote 71,343 Words for My 2nd Novel


For one of my projects, my second novel, a historical, suspense and romance story, I have to do a lot of research and reading on Iraq from 2003 to 2011. I also got input from my female friend who was born and raised in Iraq and endured the war. I wrote 71,343 words so far. My goal is to have 80,000 to 100,000 words. It took me 8 years to finish my first story, a historical, suspense, paranormal and romance novel based in Honolulu, Hawaii and the spirit world, that received some interest but it hasn’t been picked up yet. This one is taking me 4+ years so far, much faster. Maybe I can finish my third fictional writing in 2 years? Here, I’m writing at McDonald’s in Waikele on the evening of March 20, 2018.

Broken


I like that you’re broken, broken like me.

I like that you’re lonely, lonely like me.

Nonattachment and Gratitude


An example of nonattachment and gratitude combined. Two very powerful practices. “My love will always be attached to you, but not my selfish desires. I’m forever grateful for what I had with you. I love you.”
