My naughty new obsession……Audio books.

20140414-213823.jpg

Tonight I will ramble about this past weekend and my new hobby. I had a 2 hour drive ahead of me to Houston and instead of planning out my newest playlist of the latest Billboard top 100, I chose to buy an audio book.

I had never listened to an audio book before. I always thought they would be boring, or well a little creepy. Right now my favorite romance author is Maya Banks. So I decided to start off with her book “Rush”. It’s the first book from her The Breathless Trilogy. To my surprise I loved it!

I was able to do all my household chores, and run all my errands without having to stop “reading”. Usually if I’m reading a good book I get nothing else done. I would sit on the couch an entire afternoon and get nothing done. The audio book somehow made me more productive. Before I knew it I was back home with my Dre beats on changing my entire bedroom around and paying all the bills before work!

For 11 hours the Narrator Paul Adam had my full attention, with breaks in between of course. He gasped when he needed to and made all the necessary voice changes for each character when necessary. The drive went fast and I made it to Houston with 30 minutes to spare. I found it hard to get out of the truck in the middle of a chapter.

I’ve only found one con to the audio book thing which was quickly dismissed. They are expensive! But I’ve been told that I can check the books out for free at local libraries. So I will soon be listening to another. If they don’t have Maya Banks…well I will soon be broke. :-)

Bittersweet

I stared across the park bench
Hanging on his every word
And nothing in the world mattered
Not even the fussing of birds
Fingertips brush like smooth keys
Clueless to the power he holds
Honesty seems to flow with ease
The nerves no longer cold
 ~
The touch can’t be duplicated
As fingers begin to graze
The feeling is reciprocated
And minutes feel like days
 ~
Breathing becomes harder
The longing goes longer
The heart beats get louder
~
The stupid smile on my face
I can’t stop what’s coming
So I live in this very moment
Soon reality will come running

Missing Pieces

When you call
I come running
I know you’re out there
Can you hear me?
The flashbacks keep coming
Can you see me?
Staring from across the world
Could you take me?
Away from all this chaos
Maybe break me
Do everything you wished for
When you get lonely
Giving the attention you dream of
Do you honey?
Want it all laid out in the open
We could both
Fix the hearts that we’ve had broken

We Humans

We do the craziest things

Ignore someone

Attempting to retrain the brain

To try get rid of

What drives us insane

Controlling road rage

Just by switching the lanes

Stupid humans

Life just isn’t that easy

It’s hurtful, it’s messy

It’s so fucking sleazy

And you have to deal with it

Love in it

Sleep in it

And there are no refunds

You’ll just have to keep it.

Farewell

Sometimes in life
You have to let go
You have to forget
Everything that you know

You can’t have it all
Without the chance of pain
Maybe yours, maybe theirs
Someone’s left in the rain

With one large stone
The castle will fall
You can be the one to throw it
Or you can be the wall

Left all dress up
With no place to go
This itch will last forever
But it’s a scratch I’ll never know.

Sometimes

Are you cold?

Let my words flow through you

And heat up your soul

Till your heart thaws

From the pain

And beats with reminders

Of whom you are

Where you’ve been

What you crave

I’ll be your sin

Slow life down

Take it all in

Lose your frown

We’ve all been

Here

But rest my love

This too shall pass

Sometimes love fails

Sometimes love lasts

-VSN

Rupture

The hunger strikes
When you least expect
It grabs you in ways
That you don’t forget
It reminds you of the things
You cannot have
It reminds you of a time
That left you sad
But you feed off of it
As much as you can
Squeeze your eyes shut
And pretend there’s this man
Giving you the pleasure
That you’ve never had
And you reach for the high
Because you need it bad
You float in the clouds
As your fingers roam
But as you glide down the hill
You find yourself alone

Abstain

Pupils dilate as eyes meet

My body responds immediately

Nothing makes sense, concentration is broken

I hope to get over it eventually

 

I look for him at daybreak

In the middle of an empty lot

The beast within me rumbles to life

I soothe her until she stops

 

The irony is not lost on me

The timing sucks like hell

I stand finally free to roam

And he’s been locked in Jail

 

His brown eyes pierce from behind the bars

Everything else disappears

It’s just him and me on our personal mars

And this ringing in my ears

 

This need to feel his lips again

Will surely drive me insane

This handsome stranger’s touch I crave

 Is one I must refrain

Screaming Silence

When the wind went silent

I wondered if you missed me

Then the sun hit my neck

And I remembered how you kissed me

Staying away will be hard

When I want you this bad

Hours went by

And I became sad

Our time has run out

This is where we end

Not at all the way I hoped

But the most magical place I’ve been
