25 Songs, 25 Days- Day 21

Another day another song 🙂

Hope you’re enjoying these thus far, we are almost to the finish line and today’s song is

Day 21: Your Favorite Song

Stolen by Dashboard Confessional

I would never say its fair to ask someone what is their favorite song, of all time.  Music is so diverse, situational, and memorable that any song could hold meaning for a moment and it be your favorite song till that memory becomes sour.  However, for me, this song has always been my answer.  It isn’t because this reminds me of a love, or a time, or a place, but because of its merely about the simplicity of love.  Love songs though can be at times tiresome and grow out of date, especially if you are feeling bitter or just not feeling like being in a “love” mood, but this song it isn’t just about someone, its about you.  How does this song make you feel? For me its a serenading spin on a climatic build. It shoots me off into outer space every time he hits the crescendo, the last You have stolen my heart.  Ringing and powerful vocals make you feel how deeply and truly he feels this.  To me this song is my always classic example of how every great song should be formulated.  Like a story, a slow build to a climax, and then the resolution. This song does this so simply but so movingly how can this not be my favorite song of all time.  (plus freaking Chris Carrabba is gorgeous lol)

25 Songs, 25 Days Days 17 & 18

Yet again, laziness has prevailed, but it does not mean this is forgotten, quite the contrary just means double the songs for the day!

Sooooooooo,

Day 17- A song that makes you want to dance….

Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough by Michael Jackson

oh man, do I even haaaaaave to explain why? lol

Day 18- A song you love but rarely listen to

I love you from your toes to your face lol, there’s a BILLION songs out there that I kind of get those days where I’m 1000% obsessed with play it over and over again, and never get tired of and then I move on.  This is one of those songs.  I will always love this song just haven’t felt like listening to it lately till now.

25 Songs, 25 Days – Day 16

A song that has made you cry.

You may be thinking, how can this sultry seductive song make you cry? If anything it would indeed make me want to run around swinging my pants in the air far above my bare naked butt, however, the reason for this is a little sad because this song did at one time and now it reduces me to sniffling tears.

Trying not to delve too deep into TMI territory, this song was once my “music and chill” theme song.  Chris Isaak’s voice serenading the moods of the night on repeat.  Slow and sensual, painful aching guitar speaking emotions that words could never convey.

A painful memory, when time’s were at its worst, when thoughts and sentences were exchanged between me and that someone hearing this song all I heard and all I felt were the line’s, “…what a wicked game you play, to make me feel this way, what a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you what a wicked thing to say you never felts this way, what a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you…” mind you I would only cry when I would sing this part, because for that moment in that time it was me actually knowing feeling and understanding those lyrics.

Love the song still, and now since that moment this song and I have a deeper connection and understanding now. I know what it feels like, and it really is a wicked game.

25 Songs, 25 Days Days 14 & 15

Yet again, how the mighty have fallen.  Not forgetting anything though, I am just having quite the tiring work week, but I am BACK! Super swears lol.  Trying to be organized and stay organized.

So to catch up here’s yesterday’s song

Day14: A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend

First Time by The Script

A long, deep, emotional, beautiful, aching, attachment to this song and the feelings that are conveyed with it have spoken to me in our darkest and happiest of times.  There are a lot of songs that make me think of him, but this one is all of them combined.

Day 15: A Song you love singing along to:

Inside Out by Eve 6

I really like the song mostly do to the way the lyrics flow so easily off your tongue when you sing it.  Such an easy song to sing, so I always love singing along to it.

Red

I am a dancing cloud that no one will ever catch an island I have made entirely for myself.  Coconut ice cream and dagger seas.  You can join in the foot pattern or merely observe from your plane passing by.  But I will never leave I will not forsake this bird of my soul that has nested so deep inside that she can’t be caught or tamed.  I am a dark fire ball that has landed to amaze and bring you warmth but I will not be dampened nor will I ever be explained.  No one knows where I had come from or if I will keep digging deep into the soil that can’t keep me still.  I vibrate red, an eternal flame that shatters mirrors and tears walls.  I am the open air the rolling of the rocks that fall as you kick them down the mountain.  Once I am moved I will keep moving not because I do not want to be where I was but to go where I know I’m supposed to go.  And where is that? I don’t know.  I am a mere contradiction that carves my own definition in to the tree of life.  No words or iron clad fists can nail me.  For I don’t even know my purpose but I know what I am.  I am free and like this bird who is deep in my chest as I push off this mortal coil I will inhabit the nearest star and burn it up as bright as the noon day sky so that every single cell in this universe has a piece of what I was.  Nothing but pure and unending desire passion and love that can be felt in the bones of your toes and the cells on the tip of your tongue.  Taste with your heart, feel with your mind, and love with every inch of who you are and then you can see what it is to truly be me.

Mirror Love Letters

It doesn’t matter how hard you try,

Flowers will always die.

Feed them, love them, but birds are still meant to fly.

As the saying goes if you love someone let them go,

Yet I still lie in wait for them to come back, An ever growing battle with my heart

To and fro

What if they never come back?

What if it isn’t so?

But one thing I’ve noticed

And as true as it may be

What’s important if your love for me.

So self, listen dearly for I will only say this once,

Love yourself the greatest of them all.

You will never let yourself down, you will never let yourself fall.

Be determined in all that you do,

And when you are ready to say the words say them true.

Say I love you, to you.

Darkness and Light

Creeping slowly and yet it waits,

Under the sheet of your daydreams.

If it does not find a home in your mind

there are other ways.

Sinking down below

It travels through your veins.

With a cannonball it takes a swim in your stomach.

There you shall feel its pains,

It hits you and squeezes you

till you can’t take anymore.

It screams,”Give in to me!”

But you will not, no matter how great the pain.

Staying strong you have felt its hollering presence.

Do not listen to its close, loud, whispers.

You are not worthless,

You are not alone.

For above a light has always shone

And below the earth to hold you.

You don’t need anyone to make you feel like you.

You don’t need anyone to keep you together like glue.

You are beautiful just the way you are

Love yourself, and be your own best friend

A love that is worthy

Till the end.

*Author’s Note: Today I have felt the cruel clutches of loneliness and its depraving words.  Trust me when I say that I know the darkness but I know the light and its there where I want to stay.  Tell yourself you love you everyday.  It isn’t sad to say that we are our own best friends, because its true.  Pure, purest self love (not to be confused with selfishness) is the most important love we can ever allow ourselves to have.  Love yourself and you can truly love others.

Tangled Love

It never seemed enough

All those whispering sorrows

Vanishing into the deep mist of tomorrows.

Clasped together your hands never let go

Your hands holding only yours

Filling your red wine into sores.

I am a constituent to your love

Begging for it pleading for it

But the irony is beside it.

The more I want the less you give

The less I want the more is there

What a pain if not want, then what hope to bare?

We are a tangled love affair

So complicated and everywhere.

But it is you I long to share

Shaving my head just to give you locks of hair.

You are a stable independent man

who jousts his compassion with others to share

But I give myself with none left to bare.

For it is you, my tangled sweet love

That I am yours and yours alone.

Till none of my heart is left and

To you this wretched but beautiful pain I will only condone.

For only a moment in your eyes

That glisten of pure love

is worth every set of lies.

Selfie Tag

Obsession with YouTube is affecting me and I MUST post this “Selfie Tag”, basically what it is about 10 questions about myself (a readable selfie if you will). When MySpace was a big deal I used to love to post questionnaires and quizzes about myself a lot and I kind of miss it! So in homage to my younger self, and for the readers to see, here is my Selfie Tag!

1) What is your best physical feature?

Quite honestly, it has been a long road to self-acceptance for me.  Even though so many people have told me I’m beautiful or gorgeous, I could never fully see it myself.  However, lately I have take it upon myself to look at myself every morning in the mirror and tell myself, “I love you,” and really try and mean it.  So to make the long answer short, I have come to appreciate every part of myself physically, mentally, and spiritually, though I do slip.  Best physical feature in my opinion would be a tie between my lips and Hazel eyes. (Everything else is pretty awesome as well though haha ;)P

2) If you could visit anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

This has always been a tough question, and I hate to just pick a single destination (I would love to travel the entire world if I could) but as of lately I have been intrigued by Alaska and Japan.  Completely different from each other but they both have the things I love.  Alaska, for the Northern Lights, Salmon and fishing, and of course just the cold mountain terrain.  I have always had a secret endearing love for the mountains.  Japan, to definitely get in touch with my heritage.  I think it would be great to see where my mom’s side of the family has come from, Tokyo just looks crazy and exciting, and I LOVE Japanese anything.  I’m obsessed!

3) What do you need to feel better when you are sick?

Stuffed animals especially Keyes (this super old stuffed monkey I have since I was born), a really amazing movie like a Hayao Miyazaki flick (they are always amazing to watch when you’re ill, take you away on far destinations), and some gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooodddd company like my dog Beau.

4) What one piece of advice would you give to the youth of America and why?

Stop trying to tune into the technology and start getting in touch with the world around you, be with people who you love and love you back don’t waste your time on people who belittle you and make you feel less than who you really are, understand real success is not measured by the amount of money you earn but rather the amount of happiness you have and give, life is too precious and too short to worry so much about the little things, don’t take for granted your youth take care of yourself and stay healthy.

5) What animal do you think you were in a past life?

haha really never too sure, maybe a really awesome dog. Like a mutt, who had some awesome humans that took care of me and I took care of them, maybe helped a little boy who was trapped down a well, and got some awesome karma points. 🙂

6) If you could travel back in time what would you change?

Nothing.  Sounds cliche but everything I have been through has made me the person I am today.  Though I think in some instances I would change that coke I drank today to a nice cold bottle of water and those chips for celery sticks haha

7) What to do for fun on the weekends?

Play video games, draw pokemon and anime stuffs, hike, watch a bunch of YouTube, play Tennis, watch movies, more video games, bake, shop, more YouTube haha

8) Whats your biggest workplace pet peeve?

I do not have a job right now, nor have I really ever had a “real” job.

9) I wouldn’t be caught dead without ______

My phone (kind of a huge lifeline for me) and my idea book (I jot ideas I have out of blue in them if I’m out of the house)

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssstttttttttttt questions…

10) If you could have one superpower what would it be?

I have thought about this one long and hard many maaaaaaaaaaany times before. It would have to be the ability to have not necessarily control but a way with every animal and insect in the world.  Everywhere I go they would love me and be almost attracted to me and obey my every command, almost like the Queen of Animals.  But I’d be kind and love them and take care of them. Would be the coolest thing EVER!

But there ya have it folks, maybe you learned a little more about me and I had fun answering them.  Hope you had fun as well, see yall Friday ’cause I actually have something to post about fashion for once, the cogs are turning haha.

Love and happiness,

MourningDoves7 >*<

Sleepy Poetry

Somehow I always find you

Whether I am awake or asleep

You have burned your image in me

An ever growing want, burning need

To feel your skin, to taste your lips

To hear your sweet voice,

Such a sweet, sweet sorrow our love is.

So delicate and yet so strong

We defeat every reason to belong.
