HAPPY FRIDAY and have a great weekend my fellow bloggers!!

Make sure you smell the roses, taste the rainbow, listen to the sweet verses from the balmy air and appreciate the beauty of life. Take the time to chill and kickback. As for me, I just moved to my new apartment on Tuesday so i'll be unpacking and cleaning around. I am thrilled to be in a new place. The scent of an unchartered territory moves me to tears, naw, i'm not that sentimental, lol. Let's just say it was about time. Moving is a pain in the ass but I have found my quiet niche. I will provide pics once I finally purchase a digital camera. I am so behind with technology, it's sad, lol, just two months ago a friend bought me my very first DVD, all this time I was using my VHS, didn't want to get rid of my baby.

Well, i'll keep you all posted with before and after pics, this place is so lovely, I can't wait to decorate. For now it looks overwhelming since boxes and hefty bags are everywhere. I wish I was somewhere at a tiki bar overlooking the ocean while taking notes in my journal and thinking of story ideas. Most of my friends have plans this weekend, they know where to find me from Saturday thru Tuesday, i'll be chained to my apartment .

I saw this cool pic and I had to share. Can you imagine being chained up like this, unable to be free? Unable to be yourself. Well, I compare this to my job sometimes. Being cooped up at my desk for 9 hours a day. Ugggghhhh, ok let's not talk about work. There is a tiny blessing when it comes to working, we get off at 12 noon on Fridays from July thru September 1st so I guess I shouldn't whine too much about it, for now :)

Of course I will make the time to post some more poems for your viewing pleasure. I haven't been writing as much this week due to my move but be prepared, over the weekend I will sizzle your BBQ palates with some spicy wings ;)

Here I was cleaning and packing stuff for my move and I stumbled upon one of my many journals, this one dated June 2001. I will share with you the first few pages of what I wrote...

June 2001:

What I crave...
Yes, sometimes when I lay down at night staring up at the ceiling, I crave...I crave for some arms to hold me near, to let me know I'm dear and to have no fear of tomorrow. I crave for lips to touch mine, soft and warm to remind me that he will be mine, real and genuine. I crave for romance, the kind that only ocean waves whisper to each other, deep and strong. I crave love, unconditional, that even when death comes my way, his love will not let me be forgotten. I crave quiet storms, naked nights, a snuggle under warm sheets, feet that tickles and cheek to cheek. I crave eyes that stare into mine and tell me without words I am to be desired and honored. I crave sweet words, sweet enough to put me to sleep, to rock me gently, passion hot enough to burn my skin. The music of a man's heart when my head rest on his chest and I smile with content. I crave too much...in another world such cravings would be infinite and I would no longer feel such yearns.

There are more entries to this journal, this was just a small preview...

tata for now :)

Wooo- I need a smoke after that But it is very lovely Dang I need a man in my life to complicate things!! I do not envy the move. I hate to move when I bought my house 12 yrs ago I said I am not moving.. If the neighborhood turns into a crack neighborhood I will build a big cement wall around the perimeter and buzz you in LOL. Are yuo in Manhattan? I love NYcity. It is wonderuos isn't it?

Moving sucks but redecorating can be alot of fun.

That is a very thought provoking picture, I like it.

Xavier said...

Thanks again for the visit and the nice feedback. I'm really into your writing. Makes me want to find my old journals and rediscover myself through my old poems. Now look what you did! (Shaking my head,) LOL, no time to look back, I have several books to write, the future awaits!

Did you say you are working on a novel? I'm very interested, tell me more.

she breathes said...

I'm glad you like your new place, happy unpacking.

As always, your words are thought provoking. . . keep it coming.

Beijos.

PS: I answered your question on my blog, in the comments. I hope that helps.

Congrats on the new place! Nothing like fresh uncharted walls and your imagination to set your spirits on fire!

I love your journal entry you shared with us. It is very creative and visual. I think that even those of us who have been in commited relationships for years, upon years, upon YEARS (in my case 20 looooonnnggg ones) still yearn for much of what you wrote about.

I as so glad you stopped by my blog and left me a comment--otherwise I would have never found you.

I promise--I will be back :)

I can't wait for you to dish up a heaping platter of spicey wings..Yummerzzzz!

TequilaGuy said...

Hi Delaleuverses,

Thanx for your comment,
I think sharing your journal the way you did is really opening your heart to others.
Very courageous!
Good luck with your move.

"The music of a man's heart when my head rest on his chest and I smile with content"...Yes, I crave that too...

I crave too much, also. But I'm glad to know I'm not the only one...

lastlifeinmyuniverse said...

Dela, congrats on the move. There's just something about newness that lifts the spirit and the mood.
As always, thanks for sharing your heart. It is beautiful.

MagicalSis said...

godspeed on the "coming together" of your new place. it is such an exciting time in life to be in a new environment getting to decorate and appreciate. getting to have new beginnings and finding all your new shops and neighbors.

the older piece you shared was familiar...i spent a long time alone and felt that way often. it makes finding Him all the better when you've learned to be on your own and take care of you.

namaste sweet lady.

Still said...

congrats on your new move, I will be doing the same in a couple of months, glad to see I am not the only one who uses hefty bags to move.(lol)

I can relate to that pic, I sometimes feel chained to a lot of things in my life, good description of the feeling.

Loved your journal entry, I think we all crave those things, more than we are willing to realize.

andrea said...

Very evocative journal entry -- and so honest. There's another poetry blog I like to visit that you might like: http://beckettsmartyr.blogspot.com/ As for the digital camera, once you have it you'll wonder how you lived without it. Mine is like an extension of me. You already have a visually rich blog -- photos will personalize it. Looking forward to a few!

Catch said...

Stephen Bess said...

You have a wonderful way of expressing yourself. I love the poetry. I helped my sister move today. I was so worn that I had to take a nap. I'm just getting up not long ago. Enjoy your new place. I love decorating a new place and discovering new wall space for my art. It's all exciting. Peace to you and NYC too.
